Haschwalth is a tall young man with a thin build. He has long blonde hair that descends past his shoulders. His usual attire is a variation upon the Stern Ritter's typical white uniform, consisting of the order's signature hooded-cloak and a thigh-length trench coat, along with white trousers and shoes. However, when first seen, his cloak had been exchanged with a hooded-cape, which featured a black mask and a thin black sash diagonally encircling his body from the cape's left epaulette.
The Thousand-Year Blood War arc
Witnessing Yhwach mercilessly slaughter Luders Friegen and Asguiaro Ebern, Haschwalth questions if such a thing was alright given how precious the Arrancar were, due to them not needing to be trained in combat. Yhwach dismisses this, stating that they could acquire as many Arrancar as needed, thanks to Hueco Mundo already being their territory, as he looks at the imprisoned Tier Harribel. While examining Asguiaro's discarded medallion, Haschwalth notices that while it had been used, it was unable to seal Ichigo Kurosaki's Bankai. After he states that actual proof was useful despite this being predicted, Yhwach then orders him to instruct the Jagdarmee of Hueco Mundo to collect "a few idiots" alive.
While Ichigo confronts Quilge Opie, he and the other Stern Ritter gather at the Gate of the Sun at Yhwach's behest, before traveling to Seireitei to participate in the destruction of Soul Society. Once there, he and the others emerge from pillars of blue flame prior to engaging the Shinigami in battle, where Haschwalth tells the opposition to shiver in fear as the Stern Ritter have come to purge them. Ordered to halt by Hidetomo Kajōmaru, he retorts that he wouldn't mind if Hidetomo fled out of overwhelming fear, proven by his reluctance to accept this as a matter of life and death despite the war having already begun. When Hidetomo charges, he effortlessly cuts him down. Seeing the enemy's resolve crumble from afar, Yhwach permits him to spare their lives if he thought it kinder to do so.
After later informing Yhwach of Byakuya Kuchiki's death and how it took longer than predicted, they are approached by Kenpachi Zaraki carrying three dead Stern Ritter atop his shoulders. Identifying the captain, Haschwalth listens to how each was killed and states that what he had heard was indeed true, that Zaraki was a monster. His comment is ignored as Zaraki makes clear his intent to kill Yhwach. He then looks on as the captain is defeated and held aloft by his throat, just before the arrival of Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto. As the battle between the captain-commander and Yhwach ensues, he continues to watch despite his concern. Witnessing Yamamoto's released Bankai, he questions if all there was to Zanka no Tachi was a scorched sword, but Yhwach warns him to not underestimate it, explaining the Bankai's past abilities. When Yamamoto later makes Zanka no Tachi, Nishi visible, he concludes that such extreme heat could not appear as flames, and so discerns that it was instead the captain-commander's overwhelming reiatsu.
With the real Yhwach's return after Royd Lloyd's defeat, and Yamamoto's subsequent death, Haschwalth is told to convey to the other Stern Ritter that they are to raze the Soul Society. As the Quincies turned to retreat and await the Royal Guard, an explosion occurs above the two. Identifying Ichigo Kurosaki's reiatsu, Haschwalth questions if he should purge him, but Yhwach declines, only for Ichigo to appear before them as they attempt to leave. Stepping forward, Haschwalth is stopped by Yhwach, who ultimately decides that they're left with no option other than to crush Ichigo. With Ichigo quickly subdued, he acknowledges Yhwach's order to bring him back to their castle, where they could recruit him into their army.
When Ichigo suddenly awakens, he observes the ensuing fight with Yhwach, eventually disclosing that his leader's time outside of the Schatten Bereich had reached its limit. When Yhwach asks why he had not mentioned this sooner, Haschwalth replies that even if he had, he would have been unable to stop him. As they move to leave, Ichigo tries to attack, only for Haschwalth to swiftly break the blade of Tensa Zangetsu before departing.
Powers & Abilities
Reishi Sword: As a Quincy, Haschwalth is capable of gathering both spirit energy and particles and forming them into weapons. His favored weapon manifests in the form of a narrow cruciform sword, with which he effortlessly sliced apart the blade of Ichigo Kurosaki's Bankai, Tensa Zangetsu.
- (To Hidetomo Kajōmaru) "Have you not noticed? Your fear is so great...that rather than see this for the matter of life and death it is, you have subconsciously chosen to refer to it as a matter of 'passage'. A foolish notion. This war has already begun."
