Hinoe accompanied Danzo to a meeting with Orochimaru and alongside nine Root members, he received a mission to assassinate Hiruzen Sarutobi. When he fought his target, it turned out to be Kakashi Hatake in disguise.
When they were guarding the entrance, Yugoa and Kakashi showed up at the gates of Anbu asking about Danzo and Hinoe said that he was not aware of his whereabouts. Later on Kakashi subdued him and took the information from him.
Hinoe was extremely loyal to Danzo and would do whatever he asked him to do so.
Hinoe is tall with messy short brown hair. He wore the standard Anbu uniform and his mask had seven light tarnish markings on it. One of the marks was a long point coming from the forehead with three lines going through it horizontally. The marking made it resemble a closed mouth.
He was a powerful shinobi and can be seen wielding a sword and a bo which shows that he's skilled in both.
A. It stands for Special Assassination and Tactical Squad.
A. Without a doubt Itachi Uchiha was the strongest in the Anbu.
