Dango’s past is shrouded in mystery as he had a very limited appearance in the series. Very little is known about him, like the fact that he comes from the Land of Fire and serves as a minister and an advisor to the Fire Daimyo.
He appeared in Naruto Shippuden’s Five Kage Summit Arc. In the arc, out of all his advisors, Dango, who is seated closest to the Fire Daimyo, offers advice. Following Pain's attack on Konoha (Village Hidden in the Leaves), he promises to offer whatever resources are needed to reconstruct the devastated village during an emergency meeting.
This is the only instance Dango ever appeared in the Naruto series so far. Based on this minimal appearance, Dango is believed to be alive and well until any additional piece of information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Dango never had the opportunity to fully express his individuality in the series, and he had no vital roles. His sparse appearance and his status in the Land of Fire hierarchy suggest that he cares about his country and his fellow countrymen. It also seems that he is devoted to serving the Fire Daimyo and his country.
Dango is a man of average height with short brown hair and black eyes. He was seen wearing a dark tall hat with the Land of Fire’s emblem on it, covering his hair. He wore a black robe with crimson and cream-colored lines along the edges of the robe, paired with brown pointed shoes. He also wore black, round glasses, suggesting that he may have impaired vision.
Dango is a minister of the Land of Fire. He is a common man and lacks battle tactics and skills because, according to the facts at hand, he did not go through the necessary training to become a shinobi. Even if he does have any special skills, nobody knows for sure.
