Ako Hyakuya (百夜 亜子 Hyakuya Ako?) was one of the orphans from the Hyakuya Orphanage.
Ako was a small child who had short brown hair with two side pigtails held with yellow bobbles and brown eyes.
As "livestock", she wore a dark choker with a tag and a sleeveless one piece dress with a hood. The dress had a design on the eyelet and black lining. She wore dark wrist bands on her both hands, and like the rest of the children, Ako didn't wear any footwear.
- Anime: Livestock wear shoes in the anime.
Ako seemed to be a happy and cheerful girl in her interaction with others. She also noticed that Yu was not eating and asked why and cheerfully announced that she also wanted a birthday when Taichi mimicked Kōta's announcement that today was his.
At some point in her life, her parents abandoned her at the Hyakuya Orphanage which was run by the Brotherhood of a Thousand Nights, a religious organization infamous for its cruel experimentation on orphans.
