Hidari and Ashimaru teamed up after they lost their jobs as shinobi as after the Fourth Ninja War, the world is more peaceful and does not have much work for shinobi. Lori hired both the mercenaries to kill the Green Banks village head, Tofu, and take the village bridge deed.
Hidari and Ashimaru gave Lori poison that he poured into a drink, made Tofu drink it, and killed him. Lori was a close friend of Tofu but because he wanted money and authority in the village, he killed Tofu. Later, Tofu's daughter Kiri took over the village head responsibility. Lori told Hidari and Ashimaru to assault the village and force them to give up the deed, but Kiri denied them and hired Konoha shinobi to protect the village food storage. This mission was given to the new Team 7, which consisted of Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki, led by Konohamaru Sarutobi. It was their first mission and the level of the mission was D-rank.
Soon after Team 7 reached the Green Banks village, Ashimaru killed one of the citizens of the village. When Boruto tried to fight him, he almost killed Boruto, but Konohamaru came in between and then Ashimaru retreated. Later, Hidari used his genjutsu on the villagers to attack Team 7 and during the distraction, Lori kidnapped Kiri so that in exchange, the villagers would give him the deed.
When Lori brought Kiri to Hidari, Ashimaru killed Lori from behind and Konohamaru gave Hidari the option to exchange Kiri with the deed. When Konohamaru tried to save Kiri, Ashimaru and Hidari attacked them, but other members of Team 7 came to the rescue. Konohamaru told Boruto, Mitsuki and Sarada to take Kiri away while he dealt with both the mercenary shinobi.
Hidari faced Konohamaru and told Ashimaru to go for the Konoha genin. When Ashimaru attacked the Konoha genin, they were able to kill him with team coordination and they saved Kiri and the village deed. On the other hand, Konohamaru captured Hidari after getting out of his trap and showed off his Rasengan power, which made Hidari faint.
Hidari is an overconfident and cunning person who will do anything for money and his own benefit. He even killed Lori who hired him to get the deed. He also showed that he is not foolish as he doesn’t want to kill Konohagakure’s shinobi because then the even stronger village shinobi would attack him. He even fainted when he saw how powerful Konohamaru’s Rasengan was.
