Born and raised as the son of Kleist & Co.'s owner, Hugo grew up to become an aspiring businessman. Even after enrolling at Thors Military Academy, he continued to live at home in Heimdallr so he could help his father run his company. At the academy, Hugo developed a mercantile competition with the similar minded Becky.
Charismatic and clever, Hugo does whatever it takes to maximise his income. Even during the Erebonian Civil War, he travelled through Erebonia to establish a commerce network to unite imperial businesses. Rather than hogging all the money, he decided to donate all income generated through the academy's flea market to the empire's post-war recovery.
After his graduation, Hugo started working full-time as the managing director of Kleist & Co., making cool-blooded, rational decisions wherever he goes.
