Hayato Jin

神隼人, Paladin
The second pilot of Getter Robo Hayato is portrayed as a psychopathic yet highly intelligent delinquent. He is first seen as the leader of a student revolutionary group but is captured by the Saotome Research Institute after a fight with Ryoma and pulled into the Getter Robo storyline initially as the pilot of Getter2. He is the only character to have appeared in every Getter Robo series and has fulfilled many roles from being a regular teenager to an adult colonel and an aging scientist. Like the other Getter Robo characters his portrayal is drastically different in the 1970s TV series. While still a rebel and a loner he is far less cold and cruel.
