Naoki has a deep tan from his hours of being in the sun when working on ships. He has navy blue hair that is short. His hair is parted on his right side. He often has a stern gaze, with his dark blue eyes slightly squinted. He has a mesomorph build from hammering nails, carrying sculpted wood hulls and spending hours upon hours of building ships. What he doest show is a set of glasses when he reads: bifocals. He uses them when his eyes become strained from the hours he spends his free-time reading.
Naoki's personality type is quite unique, as many of his qualities defy the definition of his individual traits. Though possessing the feeling trait, Naoki has excellent analytical abilities; though introverted, he has well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though he is a judging type, Naoki is often receptive to change and new ideas. As with so many things, Naoki is more than the sum of his parts, and it is the way he uses these strengths that defines who he is.
The Hashira are decedents of legendary shipwrights from Kaigun town before it was overrun with marines. When the Marines came, the Hashira family picked up their belongings and came to a fishing village of Sturgeon on Barton Island. Naoki was born Barton Island. By the time he could walk, Naoki would spend every moment on the docks with his father. As soon as he could hold a hammer, Naoki began to learn the family trade. He watched, took mental notes and was meticulous in watching each and every step his father took when preparing, building, repair a ship. He watched as his father choose the specific wood. He would watch the curve and contort of bark, the age rings of the log, even the warts. It could take days before his father would find the right piece of wood for the jul of the ship. This was one of many parts in building a ship that Naoki found himself enthralled with.
When Naoki turned five, his mother gave birth to his sister. With another mouth to feed, his father began to expect more out of Naoki, so Naoki took up his hammer and officially joined in the family business. Day after day, week after week, month after month, Naoki's time under the sun tanned his body. Year after year, the hammer in his hand tempered his body. Around the time Naoki turned five teen, his sister had made the decision to go to Felvance to live with their aunt and train to become a doctor. Naoki's parents decided this was the time for them to move to Kuusela. His mother would work as a tailor for the high fashion of the town. His father would repair ships for the rich that came for the pageants. Everyone was going their own ways and Naoki was left with the decision to take the next step.
Naoki moved to the East Blue. He had heard of the different shade of blue in the East from the fisherman and the travelers. He thought maybe it would be good work as a shipwright to explore the Blues. However when he arrival into the East Blue ended sooner than expect but not without learning a few tricks, making a few enemies and even fewer friends. It hadn't been hyped up to be. Didn't mean he didn't enjoy his time there. He had stories to tell and memories to enjoy. Thats all that mattered to Naoki when he made the decision to come back to the North Blue.

Naoki style of fighting is a combination of using a pacing method called split step and the out-boxer style. The out-boxer style seeks to maintain a gap from their opponent and fighting with fast, longer range punches. Out-boxer style is known for being extremely quick on their feet, thus the addition split step method. The split step method is when the user takes small hops in the ready position and when needing to move or strike, they gain explosive distance in an instant.
