Hatfield Suzuki is a Japanese American Blaseball player and tattoo artist born to parents who had recently immigrated from Saitama, Japan. Prior to joining the New York Millennials, Hatfield Suzuki was the owner of Suzuki Hattoo and Design, a small tattoo parlor located in Brooklyn, New York. While the parlor was quick to receive acclaim for Suzuki's fine line quality and intricate tattoo designs, far more notable was the rumor that Suzuki's tattoos were capable of telling the future. These tattoos – or "hattoos," as most called them – were often abstract in nature, offering vague imagery that rarely made sense in the moment, but became crystal clear in retrospect after the depicted event passed.
Most notable about Suzuki's famed hattoos was that she refused to charge a single cent for one. When asked, Suzuki claimed that “the cost itself comes with knowing what the future holds. What is learned will never be forgotten; is that a price you’re willing to pay?"
Suzuki continued running her tattoo parlor despite the demands of Blaseball, and handled the regular commute from New Jersey to New York with exceptional grace. Being the first to emerge from the Millennials Shadows, she was also able to help in facilitating further transfers once travel in and out of the Shadows became more frequent.
Suzuki took very well to Blaseball overall--perhaps due to their occasionally prophetic tattoos giving them a sense of security, or possibly just due to their general good nature. They especially enjoyed the addition of Grind Rails and Hoops, and would perform skateboard tricks at any opportunity. She was known for frequently texting with one pair of arms while batting with the other two, but this didn’t affect her performance that much.
One aspect of Blaseball Suzuki had a more complex relationship with was Elsewhere. She was swept 5 times and spent a total of 78 days Elsewhere (non-consecutively). Suzuki has not spoken much about her days spent Elsewhere, but it can be inferred that she found it very disorienting, or perhaps she saw it as a much-needed break. After returning from her last trip, she was granted Ego+, as an attempt to keep her more grounded and prevent her from being swept away again. Suzuki was both Scattered at the time and Undefined shortly after, and as such was unavailable for comment on this incident. In classic Mills Fashion, though, the Hubris Cycle did its work, and Suzuki’s Ego led first to her being moved to Hades, and then to her briefly visiting the Vault. Suzuki has not said whether or not any of her tattoos predicted these events.
- Suzuki owns 551 hats, and has been known to wear up to 6 at once.
- Suzuki is in an open relationship with Patty Fox.
- Suzuki felt an odd sense of familiarity upon seeing Owen Suzuki’s name on the Immortals lineup.
