Hanae has an unknown ability that has yet to be revealed. However when he confronted the capybara demon who accused him of thievery and hurt Fuzzy, a strange blue aura came out of his arm and Capybara kneeled before Ashiya, feeling an oppressive force and aura coming out of Ashiya that awoke out of Ashiya's anger.
