"I used to feel so much peace, staring into the heavens… until a piece of it fell and the nightmare began. We thought it could be contained, but it evolved, so we did too. If there's a way to stop them, you will find it… but I know, you will find me first."
— Hibana (Rainbow Six Extraction: Cinematic Reveal Trailer)

Yumiko Imagawa (Japanese: 今川 由美子, Imagawa Yumiko), codenamed Hibana, is a REACT Operator appearing in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction. She is unlocked by default.


Main article: Hibana

After the outbreak of the Chimera Parasite in 2018, Imagawa interviewed Rainbow specialists who participated in Operation Outbreak and retrieved post-operation reports on multiple occasions. She conceived a daughter with longtime boyfriend and fellow Rainbow specialist Jack "Pulse" Estrada and named her Maho. Her newfound family made her fearful of the reemergence of the Parasite.

When it did reemerge across the United States a few years later, she and Estrada were one of the first Rainbow specialists approached to join the newly formed REACT. This was due to her extensive counter-terrorism background which left her with a broad and varied set of tactical skills that would make her particularly deadly against the Archæans. They were hesitant to join, however, due to the thought of being away from Maho for extended periods of time. This changed when they were given approval to bring Maho aboard REACT's mobile command ship, the PIONEER.

To mitigate separation anxiety, REACT psychologists enacted a pilot project to accommodate family units aboard the PIONEER. This along with Imagawa's efforts to be closer to her daughter resulted in the creation of a daycare aboard the vessel. At the request of REACT psychologists, she and Estrada have regular extended visits with Maho while not on missions. At an unspecified point, she became MIA during an Incursion and was held captive in an Archæan Tree. Despite resistance from the Parasite, she was later rescued by Sanaa "Nomad" El Maktoub, Olivier "Lion" Flament, and Elżbieta "Ela" Bosak.

Imagawa sees possibilities beyond the obvious. She may be able to see the possibilities beyond the immediate threat of Chimera. (INSERT: E. Álvarez-I couldn't agree more. @INDEX)

The effects of new family on Imagawa's efficacy is not quantifiable. REACT psychologist have enacted multiple strategies to mitigate separation anxiety, including extended visits with daughter ("Maho"), therapy sessions with mate/spouse (Jack "Pulse" Estrada). Suggest increased support. (Ref: REACT HR specialist)

ADDENDUM: Imagawa has spear-headed project to provide family accommodation aboard PIONEER on future long-term deployments. (Cross-Ref: PIONEER)


Gameplay Description[]

X-KAIROS Launcher
Gadget REACT Xkairos.png

A Light Armored Operator, Hibana's unique gadget is the X-KAIROS Launcher, which can fire explosive pellets that can be remotely detonated simultaneously and can pierce reinforced walls. At Operator level 2, the launcher's reload time and detonation delay is reduced. The launcher's total number of round is increased to four at Operator level 7. At Operator level 10, the X-Kairos' damage is increased to 480 points and one launcher round is recharged every 45 seconds.

  • The X-KAIROS initiates a box-reticle that is visible to everyone, showing where her pellets will land. The X-KAIROS Launcher has the ability to switch between the number of pellets it will fire by pressing the same button that changes firing modes on a normal weapon.
    • The least amount of pellets the X-KAIROS Launcher can fire at a time are two pellets, which land on a surface as a 2x1 rectangle.
    • The greatest amount of pellets the X-KAIROS Launcher can fire at a time are six pellets, which land on a surface as a 2x3 rectangle.
  • The pellets only deploy on flat surfaces. They will not deploy on environmental props or players. When the pellets hit these objects, they will bounce away and deactivate.
  • The pellets do not disperse; even if aimed from an angle or at a distance, the pellets will deploy squarely on the surface Hibana fired at.
  • Deployed X-KAIROS pellets can be destroyed by projectiles, hits from enemies, or explosive damage from Breachers.
  • If the player uses the gadget key again while X-KAIROS is active and some pellets were deployed, Hibana will trigger all deployed X-KAIROS pellets for detonation. After a short 5 second "melt time", the deployed X-KAIROS pellets will detonate. Each pellet can destroy a small section of a surface`.
  • A total of four pellets, regardless of placement, is required to open a hatch. Any less and small holes will be created instead.
  • Because the X-KAIROS only triggers the deployed pellets, Hibana has the option of deploying and activating a cluster of the X-KAIROS pellets one at a time, or deploying them all before activating them at once.
