—Hamiwa's quote about Determination
Terukiwa Himikoni Hamiwa or simply Hamiwa or self-proclaimed "Child of the Sunflowers" is one of the protagonists in School Fare series. She and Hato are the first Brush Envoys to have ever been able to use Secret Brush Techniques in Azure High's record.

Terukiwa Himikoni Hamiwa is a rank C+ student and then exceeds to B+ rank under the Shinto Believer Brush Envoy Prodigy Class.
Hamiwa is a 16 years old teenage girl who has obvious eastern tribe features. She lives in the Kumano Shrine in the Yamagata prefeture. She is the older twin sister of Terukiwa Hato. Both of them were raised by their grandparents in Akayu, Nan'yo . Both of them later moved to the Kumano shrine in center on Nan'yo to train with their inheritence of a Brush Envoy.
Hamiwa learns the basic and fundamental elements of drawing using the Celestial Brushes. She pick the thin brush so that she can draw faster and more time-saving. On one day, she is invited by a wandering man around the area. He was selling some oranges. Hamiwa like the oranges, so she tought that following him around would make him give her more of his oranges. Some time later, the wandering was tired, so took a nap under a tree. A few minutes after he sleeps, she saw some monkeys who tried to steal some oranges in the man's basket. Hamiwa wanted to fend them off, but the monkeys were being aggressive. So, she wield her Celestial Brush and inflict Ink Smudge to all of them. Suddenly, out of nowhere, another monkey was swinging on a vine and snatch the brush from Hamiwa's hand. Hamiwa scream "Give that back you pesky monkeys!". She pursue the monkeys to a small cave. She entered the cave, only to hope to regain her brush back. When inside, she can see some fireflies flying around the walls. Until the end of the cave, she found her brush, but no monkeys were in sight. She was cautious and keep looking around the place for any sign of monkeys.
Suddenly, a bright glow from one of the firelies is emitted. The firefly's glow was so bright, that it shones so brightly and transformed into a mossy monkey statue. Hamiwa began to wonder, "Is this the Celestial God Statue that master has been talking about? When we pointed our brush onto it, we'll gain some of it's powers?". Hamiwa intented to have a try. The surroundings suddenly became so dark, the firelies' glow was not to be seen. Until some constellation in the sky shines on the pitch black cave. It was the constellation for the three Hanagami triumvirate, Sakigami, Hasugami and Tsutagami. Hamiwa was astonished greatly to see three Celestial Brush Gods at once. She gain the 'Enamation' ability and along with the 'Greensprout', 'Lily Pad' and 'Bloom' Celestial Brush Techniques.
Hamiwa came back to the Kumano Shrine and shows her new powers to the people there. She received a scholarship brought by Hato after a few hours she came back home.
Hamiwa is a tall girl with a small built, and her appearance is clearly of the easterners. She have a slick black hair, she stylized her hair to be in a sumo-wrestler style bun, but tied to ther left. She sweep her hair band to the left, while some side bangs which notably cleaned cut. She wears a prairie-sunflower stylized kanzashi by her hair knot. Her eyes shaped like a leaf, have a slightly thicker lash at the end.
