When he was little, he was fascinated by a samurai warrior that he had read about in a book, and he chose to become a samurai instead of a ninja. Although he is a samurai, he is also a well-respected leader of the ninja team in the Autumn Village called the White Tiger School.

The "devil child" with a heart as pure as snow

Due to being born with different colors in each eye, he has been called a devil child, following the tradition of the Winter Village that ones born with different colored eyes will bring disaster. He is hardly given an opportunity to leave his village other than for work.
It is part of the reason why he is not to be the next chieftain of the Winter Village despite being a direct descendant of Mizuki.
