Rachins Hoffman (ラチンス ホフマン), commonly known as Chin (チン), is one of the three thugs that attacked Subaru. He later joins the Felt Camp after being employed by her.


Chin has a unusual white complexion with black eyes. He wears a prison suit and has chains around his wrists and throat. He has long grayish blue hair with pink at the end.


Chin was born as Rachins Hoffman, a noble from Lugnica. However, after certain events, he left the nobility and started his life in the slums as Chin. Soon after, he met with Ton and Kan.


Fire Magic: Chin is able to use Fire Magic.

Equipment: Chin carries a knife with him that he uses to threaten people. However, he hasn't actually stabbed anyone before, causing him to be shocked when he stabbed Subaru.

Training : After being employed by Felt, he started to get trained by Reinhard and has developed considerable power.


  • Ton, Chin, and Kan's names are a play on the Japanese word tonchinkan which means irrelevant or inconsistent.
  • According to the author, Ton, Chin, and Kan don't play an active role after Arc 1 until Arc 8.
