Nigihayami Kohakunushi (饒速水琥珀主 nigihayami kohakunushi, lit. god of the swift amber river) referred through most of the film by his nickname Haku (ハク, haku), is the deuteragonist in the Japanese animated film Spirited Away.


Haku is Yubaba's apprentice and second-in-command at the Bathhouse. He is a bit older than Chihiro, about 12 years old, and has a lean build. He has sharp grey-green eyes, same-colored dark hair in a bob Japanese haircut, and thin eyebrows. Fans of the movie even argue if his hair is black or green. He wears a white kimono with light blue Japanese trousers known as monpe, along with a purple sash around his waist. As a River Spirit, he has the ability to transform into a beautiful silver dragon; an animal commonly associated with rivers and water in Japanese culture and mythology. His dragon form is that of a typical Eastern dragon, with a long snakelike body, deer-like antlers, flowing whiskers, and a lupine face. In this form, he has smooth silver scales with a turquoise mane. He can fly, and seems to have the ability to interchange between human and dragon forms at will.
