Alternatively, she wears a dark turtleneck sweater, and a long white skirt; black stockings, and white shoes, together with a white purse.

Personality

A professional, friendly and kind woman that could only qualify as reliable. At work, at least - When she is out of the office, it is implied by her interactions with Naomi that she has a habit of slacking off a bit if left unwatched, being prone to be easily startled.

When confronted by Steinbeck and Lovecraft, despite being more afraid than Naomi, Haruno was able to remain calm enough to drive safely, therefore, she is a composed woman.

Due to having an obsession with her cat, Haruno is also easily teased.

Background

It is unknown when Haruno joined the agency. Yet, she's on friendly terms with Naomi, so the two of them may have known each other for quite some time.
