Hanbei is the proprietor of a ryokan, a Japanese-style traditional inn, located around the Great City of Dis.
He is young-old in appearance and wears slightly aged clothes, which are chosen for their personal meaning.
A friend of Dhiar's, Hanbei runs his ryokan a short train ride outside of Dis. Its location is one that is indefinitely chilly, sometimes outright cold, and often sees snow.
When Dhiar took Siros to see the Great City, he left one night while the angel was asleep and caught up with Hanbei, sharing a drink under the especially beautiful gaze of the Moon. He returned with Siros the next day to enjoy nabemono.
