Hayato Yamagata (Japanese: 山形 (やまがた) 隼人 (はやと) Yamagata Hayato) was a third year libero in Shiratorizawa Academy.

Currently, he is a libero on the V. League Division 2 team Hiashi Automotive Lions.

Appearance

He has an undercut with dark brown, spiked up hair, dark brown eyes and thick eyebrows. Due to the slant in his eyebrows, he unintentionally looks to be glaring. He is relatively short and has a medium build.

Personality

He is serious and focused on the game. When Nishinoya pulled off an incredible move, Yamagata grinned widely. It's been shown he is similar to Nishinoya when it comes to 'getting into' the game, yet he seems more aggressive than most liberos.

Yamagata is also seen being very supportive of his kouhai, Goshiki, and was shown telling Ushijima when he was being unintentionally rude towards him. He appears to be very protective of the younger years and often acts as a mentor.
