"Time to carve up some pigs!"
―Hajime upon his transformation as Sword Roidmude.[src]

Hajime Taga (多賀 始 Taga Hajime) is a criminal from Kamen Rider Drive. When Roidmude 007 bonded with his evil heart through the Neo Viral Core, he becomes Sword Roidmude (ソードロイミュード Sōdo Roimyūdo).

Character History

At some point of time ago before the Global Freeze incident, he was arrested by Akira Hayase after he killed a police officer.

In the present day, while he was transported by police forces, Roidmude 007 freed him and granted him the Neo Viral Core, thus fusing with him into Sword Roidmude, all while 007 acted as his advisor. He quickly engaged in a battle against Drive and Mach before fleeing away. He later targeted Hayase in his hospital as an act of revenge until Shinnosuke and Mach arrived to stop him. In the end, Shinnosuke was forced to reveal his identity as Kamen Rider Drive to the public and separated Hajime from 007. Hajime was arrested again and brought into custody. Why Has a New Battle Started?

Roidmude 007 regains a new body and once again searches for Hajime and after finding him, they fused again via the Neo-Viral Core into Sword Roidmude. Shinnosuke tried to help but his hand was still injured from Mashin Chaser's attack when he and Heart fought. Deadheat Mach and Kiriko tried to help but to no avail. As Sword was about to kill Kiriko, Chase rescued her and transformed into Kamen Rider Chaser. He finally put an end to 007 with Shingou-Ax, killing 007 and his Core while Hajime is once again captured. Where is Chaser Going?
