Hayashi Fuyou (林 芙蓉) was the sickly daughter of Professor Hayashi. She died of illness before the Gintama storyline. Her mother passed away when she was young, and her father decided to make toys to keep her company. These toys eventually evolved in complexity to robots like Tama. She also befriended Ebina at the lakeside before her death.
Already frail to begin with, she complied with her father's request to conduct experiments on her to extract her personality data, which only hastened her death.
