|This article is about a character in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.|
Haima Kagami (鏡 灰馬, Kagami Haima) is the director of Seito University Hospital, and father of Hiiro Kagami. On behalf of the Ministry of Health, Haima would run the Cyberbrain Room from which his son combated the Bugsters as Kamen Rider Brave.
Haima Kagami is the father of Hiiro Kagami and served as director of Seito University Hospital by the time of the Zero Day disaster in 2011. This incident, which saw multiple people succumb to a new affliction known as the Game Disease, had a personal impact on Haima as Saki Momose, his son's girlfriend, was among the victims. Though a Cyberbrain Room was established under Seito Hospital by the Ministry of Health to combat the infection, their Kamen Rider Dr. Taiga Hanaya failed to terminate Graphite which had spawned from Saki. As a result, Saki perished as the Bugster's formation was completed; Haima had to witness to this in CR with Asuna Karino as his son was left devastated.
Second Bugster Outbreak
He was in the hospital's basement headquarters of CR when Emu Hojo and Asuna Karino brought Sota Suyama in suffering from the Bugster virus. He orders Emu to forget about seeing the virus, which naturally he doesn't. After reporting that Hiiro had still yet to arrive, he wishes Asuna luck as she takes the Gamer Driver to find the gamer "M" who can hopefully use it.
Haima was shocked not only to see Emu back in CR, but that he had become a Kamen Rider as well. While he initially disapproved of this, Asuna's explanations made him quickly change his mind and welcomed him as a CR doctor. Complicating things further was the arrival of Hiiro seconds later. Haima is often proud of his son and tries to be sweet to him, despite Hiiro's cold attitude to his father.
While Haima takes his role as director of Seito University Hospital very seriously, he may often be goofy and comical to his employees in contrast to a dignified image of a hospital director. He also remains close with Kyotaro Hinata as he reports CR's actions back to the Ministry of Health.
Kamen Rider Chronicle
|"You weren't the only one broken by Saki's death. I thought that I could clear Kamen Rider Chronicle, then the people that were erased would be restored. But in the end, I couldn't defeat any of them... I've brought shame to myself!"|
|―Haima explains himself to Hiiro[src]|
When the Bugsters orchestrate Kamen Rider Chronicle as the game where humans and Bugsters battle out each other, Haima was invested in the prospect of bringing back the deceased victims of the Bugster virus. Wishing to restore Saki, the director acquired a Gashat and entered the game as a Ride-Player, infecting himself with the Lovelica's Game Disease strain as a result. However, Haima was no match for the top tier Bugsters and had to be saved by the Kamen Riders who remained unaware of his identity until he stepped into protect Ex-Aid from Para-DX. Taken back to CR, his condition was kept secret from the Ministry of Health because of the banned use of the game. Admitting his wish to take action, Haima was entrusted by his son to contact the Ministry of Health to request that they relinquish the Proto Gashats that they had confiscated from Kuroto Dan only to find that they had mysteriously disappeared despite being placed under strict guard. Fortunately, Haima was ultimately cured of his Game Disease once Lovelica was terminated by Kamen Rider Cronus.
Fortunately, the Kamen Riders manage to put an end to the Kamen Rider Chronicle crisis and Haima continues to oversee the progress of ending the Game Disease strains and continue aiding new patients with Hiiro beside him.

"Of course he can. Who do you think I've been looking up to as a doctor this whole time?"

Haima acts tough and strict, especially in front of Emu, and gets defensive when Emu voices his dissatisfaction with Hiiro. However, whatever the situation, his personality takes a 180-degree turn if Poppy Pipopapo informs him to the contrary of his position, immediately agreeing with her completely. Despite his comical behavior, Haima can also prove to be a reliable ally to the doctors and prioritizes his son's happiness, being the main reason he participated as a Ride-Player in hopes of restoring Saki Momose and other victims of Bugster Viruses. This aspect is also revealed to be the motivation for Hiiro to become a doctor for seeing his father as the man he truly is.
