Konohagakure (the Village Hidden in the Leaves)
Hibachi was born and brought up in Konoha Village and is a former student of Iruka Umino in the Konoha Ninja academy. He didn’t want Naruto in his group because at that time, everyone used to hate and pity Naruto Uzumaki, but Naruto only wanted to make friends because he had no one at home.
Hibachi made fun of Naruto when he tried to perform the Shadow Clone Jutsu and hit the target with his shuriken in one of the classes. When Naruto approached him and his friends, he refused to let him join, which made Naruto mad and he pranked Hibachi when he and his friends were doing a test of courage at Konoha Cemetery.
Later, Hibachi lies to Naruto that he could join the group but for that, he needs to bring something from the hill where the fights happened last night. Shikamaru Nara and Choji Akimichi heard this and when Iruka asked the class where Naruto was, Shikamaru told him that it was Hibachi's plan to send Naruto to the hill.
Iruka rushed to bring back Naruto, who was in danger there when the other village shinobi attacked him but Iruka and Kakashi Hatake were able to save him.
Hibachi is not a guy who really cares about anyone and he was selfish toward Naruto. He has the desire for revenge.
Hibachi wears a gray beanie and has brown hair. He wears a light brown t-shirt and under that wears a full-sleeved orange t-shirt. He wears green trousers which have a few pockets.
