Hym the Pawn is a character from The Adventure of Dai. He is a member of Hadlar's Royal Guard, a group composed of 5 members made from orichalcum chess pieces. He is originally an antagonists, but he becomes and ally to the Disciples of Avan in the final confrontation with Vearn's forces.
Hym's body is made of Orichalcum, and given life with forbidden magic by Hadlar with the help of Vearn. His appearance is that of a bald, muscular man made from silvery metal of average height. He inherited Hadlar's passion and fighting spirit upon birth.
After inheriting Hadlar's will, he grows silver hair similar to his creator and starts developing light aura skills.
Hym is one of the five chess pieces given life and soul by Hadlar, and the one who inherited Hadlar's passion. He feels deep admiration for his master, and would do anything to protect the former dark commander.
Hym is a master of close-range combat, using his own martial arts techniques. The pawn can use Frizz type spells, however he does not cast them to attack, but to boost his own fists with the powerful Heat Knuckle.
Being a pawn grants him the potential of promotion, which he uses unknowingly after his master's demise to gain a new form, with an appearance much more closer to Hadlar's. In this new form Hym has long, silver hair like his master, and can imbue his fists with aura, making them much more powerful than before.
He has a strong rivalry with Hyunckel since the moment their paths cross, but they later becomes friends.
Hym was the last character added to the game prior to its end of service, only followed by another form for Dai. He can be recruited in Bonding Journey Chapter 1 after finishing Chapter 23 of Dragon Tracks.
Hym is a fast martial artist who specialises in Light damage. Although he has the ability to equip Claws, visually he still only performs hand-to-hand combat with his bare knuckles. His selection of armour includes fighter garbs, clothes, and large shields.
Hym appears as an A-rank character of the Inorganic family as part of the limited Second Adventure of Dai event, alongside his master Superior Being Hadlar on his banner. He is faced as a boss in Chapter 3, Episode 3: The Hadlar Royal Guard and Chapter 4, Episode 1: Father and Son Dragons Set Out, as well as the Sababa Fishing Port stage of "To the Final Battleground".
