Hinatsuru is a calm, patient, and incredibly kind individual, similar to Tanjiro Kamado . In addition, she is strategic and fearless in a combat situation. She shows compassion and love towards her husband, Tengen Uzui .


At some point in his life, Hinatsuru married Tengen Uzui, along with Suma and Makio. After she left the clan, her family traveled to see Kagaya Ubuyashiki to fight as part of the Demon Slayer Corps.


At some point in the past, Hinatsuru was instructed alongside Makio and Suma by Tengen on his personal ideology: putting their own lives first, then respectable humans, and finally himself. Later, when Makio questioned this idea privately, as it went against what they had been taught as kunoichi. Hinatsuru assured her that as long as she was okay with that, Tengen would also approve. She also wanted all four to retire from the front lines as soon as they defeated a Higher Rank.


Entertainment District Arc

Suspecting that the Entertainment District was an ideal hiding place for demons, Hinatsuru infiltrates it as an oiran alongside his fellow wives. Sent to the Kyogoku House, she quickly realized that the main oiran Warabihime was a demon, but she couldn’t make a move, so she drank poison in order to be sent out of the house. However, she was fired with a belt that would quickly dispatch her if she tried to do anything suspicious.
Sent to Yoshiwara’s lowest-end brothel, Kirimise, Hinatsuru was found by her husband Tengenwho gave her an antidote to the poison she had taken. She asked him to leave her and go find the demon, apologizing for not being more helpful. He told her to leave as soon as the antidote kicked in, and the two kissed. Later, she slowly made her way to the fight.


Coming to a critical point in the conflict, Hinatsuru fired a large amount of kunai at Gyutaro, who used a Blood Demon Art to block the attack. Despite this, one of his kunai managed to pass, creating an opportunity for Tengen and Tanjiro Kamado .

She desperately hoped that one of them would be able to decapitate the demon. She was then attacked by the High Rank, but before she was harmed, Tanjiro saved her with a combined technique of Water Breathing and Hinokami Kagura. She ripped Gyutaro’s severed hand from his throat, but he was quickly on top of them again, only to be attacked from behind by Tengen . The sneak attack failed, Tanjiro knocking them both back from the ensuing counterattack, and Daki’s sudden attack. The kunoichi tells her savior not to worry about her, or she would be in hiding, but to focus on winning. Before leaving, she slipped him one of her poisoned kunai.

She was joined by her companions in misfortune, Makio and Suma, having witnessed the final moments of the battle. She worriedly noted that something was wrong, that feeling becoming a horrifying reality during Gyutaro’s desperate final attack. She and the others desperately tried to save their husband, to no avail, with Hinatsuru shedding a tear for him. He tries to say his last words, but Suma and Makio argue, causing Hinatsuru to berate them. In the midst of it all, Nezuko Kamado arrived, using her Blood Demon Art to burn poison from Tengen ‘s body , to the brides’ initial amazement and horror, and then to their joy.


Hinatsuru, the other wives, and Tengen were then approached by Obanai Iguro, who both congratulated and insulted them for their victory. She pushed the overly emotional Suma off their badly injured husband, then left with her family, supporting her husband so he could walk.


General Abilities: Hinatsuru does not possess any form of superhuman abilities. However, as she was raised as a kunoichi, Hinatsuru possesses some form of shinobi skill, being able to wield a kunai as well as perform maneuvers and combat far more effectively than ordinary people.
