Prior to the Catastrophe
Akaneya is a long-time Elder Tale veteran with even more experience in the game than Shiroe. How long he has played for is unknown, but he ran a livestream channel where he would listen to other players' grievances and give advice, or show off his attempts at forging rare items. The streams were fairly popular and his name is known among the community for it.
Round Table Alliance arc
Along with Woodstock W and some other small guilds, Akaneya was invited to Maryelle's meeting to create an alliance of small guilds. However, it fell to infighting and conflict of interest, and the other guilds walked out even as Akaneya attempted to calm them down. As Woodstock gruffly proclaimed that he knew it wouldn't work, Maryelle only looks down at the table in dejection.
Akaneya is later one of the guild masters invited to attend the Round Table Conference. He agrees to its formation and becomes one of the eleven representatives of the Round Table Alliance.
Fallen Guardian arc
Later on, he and Roderick develop an artificial arm for Misa. In the meeting, they comment that her arm must be in the same place where Krusty is; since the magical cure didn't work, that means the arm wasn't destroyed. Their prediction later turns out to be correct; not only is it with him, it also twitches within its wrappings, for reasons unknown.
- Akaneya is among the players distinguished for having even more experience in Elder Tale than Shiroe. The only other player mentioned to be in a similar position is Nyanta, who has played the game since it was in beta.
