The Hayashi are more down to earth, more normal than most Shrine families. Maybe its because they process Dust into the most wonderful glass objects. Even when its totally inert Dust glass is the most beautiful you have ever seen. When its got a little magic left in it? Then its incredible!
But the work is sort of normal, and the demand for their glass means they stay grounded. Day to day interactions with merchant ship captains and trade envoys, and the hard work of firing , blowing and shaping the glass keep them in touch with Town more than any other shrine family, except maybe the Watanabe.
The House of Crystal is right on the docks of Ceiba Quay (the northern arm of Fortitude Bay)
Professor Hideo Hayashi is the head of the family
