Hayabusa founded the Hayabusa Clan not because he believed in the Great Journey, but because he wanted John dead. He used all of his members claiming, "I needed a good number of fools to do my bidding, spreading them out across John's path of destruction, when i find him, i'll kill him and get my arm back." He changed his name from Riley to Hayabusa in honour of his armor, and made it a parameter that all members are to wear the armor at all times. When John and Riley met they endured bloody battle. John-117 finally managed to kill Riley but left the battle severely wounded, he succumbed to his wounds and died a week later after severe blood loss.
