Haru Kato (加藤 春 Katō Haru) is one of the main characters of Fugou Keiji Balance: Unlimited. He currently works in the Detective Division for the Metropolitan Police Department.
Haru is a member of the Modern Crime Prevention Task Force's Metropolitan Police Department. He is a hot-blooded humanistic detective who hates dishonesty and bending. Originally, he belonged to Investigation Division 1 as a promising rookie, but after a siege incident where he misfired and the target was seriously injured, he was dropped from the division and moved to the current headquarters he's in at the start of the series.
Haru is a young man of average height with dull, light-brown-gray (taupe) colored hair and golden eyes. His hair is rather unruly and styled with messy and loose bangs framing his face.
Haru wears a regular white dress shirt decorated with a loose, dark-green tie and gray suit pants. He also dons brown shoes and a short beige jacket with dark brown accents.
As a member of the Metropolitan Police Department, Haru is rather passionate about his job and can be quick-tempered when others' lives are at stake. He is humanistic and just, often taking the moral high ground when performing his police duties. He goes as far as risking his own life to protect those in danger as seen when he uses himself as a shield to guard civilians when Daisuke Kambe nearly hits them with his car. Haru is also willing to intercept or obstruct those of higher rank than him to increase the chances of a case being solved appropriately.
Haru detests corruption or bribery of any kind, regularly disgusted by Daisuke's dependency on wealth and negligence of morals.
He is also shown to be hard-working and sympathetic towards others as seen when he pays attention to the street performers who were trying to make a living. Later on, while spying with Daisuke, he chose to remain in the car and to follow the suspect at all time, despite being exhausted and sleep-deprived.
Despite his serious and straight-laced demeanour, Haru is shown to have a number of expressed issues, haunted by his past failures in Divsion One, and unable to handle a gun because of it. This is shown to be a sore subject, and Haru violently reacts whenever it is brought up.
- According to his official data profile, Haru's hobbies and skills include judo and self-cooking (to save money).
