Hinote Hazukashi (ヒノテ ハズカシ) is the main original characters in the Izanagi’s Army Arc and Serging Sand fan-fictions by saber_fang_wolf. Hinote is seen mainly wearing a black trench coat and camouflage pants with black combat boots (Part I). He changes attire after envoy missions to the Sunagakure led to his assignment there, dressing mainly in a red sand robe. Hinote carries a set of three diagonal scars on his chest as a result of a battle he was in when he was a Chunin.
Hinote started his life in Konohagakure as an abandoned baby found by the gate guards. He had no known family and was outcasted by most other students and shinobi in the village.
After graduation of the academy, he focused intensly on training when not on missions as a genin. His low level for ninjutsu has lead to his sole development of genjutsu, which is where his jutsu generally rests.
After the Chunin Exams, he was sent on a series of envoy missions to the Sunagakure. He became upset when the Hokage refused to allow him on missions, other than those that involved the re-alliance with Konohagakure and Sunagakure.
Abandoned as a baby at the Konoha gates, Hinote was discovered by guards and was taken to the Hokage. Due to having no family he lived with a Chunin who taught academy students in the village and was greatly outcasted by other students. After graduation, Hinote focused on training when he wasn’t out on missions as a Genin.
He discovered at a young age that he was not strong in Ninjutsu and his attempts were below par in all measurements. He instead worked diligently at perfecting his Genjutsu, which is what the bulk of his jutsu consists of. He was allowed to participate in the Chunin exams at the request of his foster father and then became a Chunin.
While on a mission escorting a prominate businessman out of the Country of Fire, a three day long battle ensued in which one of his squad mates was killed and Hinote himself was left severely injured. After his extensive recovery from this battle, the Hokage, impressed by the skill he had shown requested him to become a Jounin and he was sent on a series of envoy missions to the Sunagakure.
Hinote became upset however when these were the only missions he was allowed to do since becoming a Jounin. He felt that he was being held back due to the image that he had in Konoha, which was one of fear because of his rather anti-social behavior.
Finally after staying an extended period in Sunagakure, Hinote was allowed to resume normal missions to thank him for his part in the re-alliance work between the two villages. He was given the command of a squad of three Genin. During his time as a sensei, Hinote built a strong bond with his students and led them successfully through the Chunin exams.
Izanagi’s Army Arc
Hinote only briefly served as the Hokage’s advisor during the arc…devising a risky plan to ask the Sunagakure for assistance during the difficult period. After the intense battles, Hinote was once again sent to the Sunagakure for envoy missions, only not to return from his latest ones.
In light of his romantic relationship with sand ninja Toboe Susanowa, Hinote is persued by the ANBU and was kept under close observation for a short while before the teams assigned to watch him never reported in. It was reported that he was secretly teaching sand ninja, but he denies those accusations giving this explination: “I just like it here, I’m loved and cared for.” The recent investigation into Hinote’s actions in the Sunagakure has been the largest factor in the falling out between himself and his star student, Yami Kokoro.
Hinote's jutsu mimic a unique style of genjutsu developed over his time spent as a shinobi and his travels to distant lands and villages on missions.
