Very little is known about his childhood as Senta’s past is still shrouded in mystery. He was introduced in the series as a loan collector working for the Akagi Gang in the Land of Tea.
Senta made his first appearance in Naruto episode 97 during the Search for Tsunade Arc. In the story, Senta and Bunzo, his partner, both were dispatched to collect the money from Tsunade Senju that she owed to their boss in the Akagi family. They were unable to return to their home unless they had recollected the debt Tsunade owed. Thus, they grew desperate as the years passed by. They decided to take the most valuable thing to Tsunade, the First Hokage's Necklace, and use it as blackmail.
Little did they know, Tsunade had given the necklace to Naruto Uzumaki, who then fought the two and got his necklace back. They then clarify their stance, saying that they must either get the money back or continue attempting to do so without being able to return home to their families. Naruto then promised to assist in collecting Tsunade's debt. After confronting Tsunade with Naruto's help, they eventually learn, ironically, that Tsunade had returned their boss's money when she and Shizune had visited their town a year earlier.
After learning the truth, Senta returned to his family. Since Senta has not been seen or mentioned since this incident, it is hard to determine whether he is dead or alive. Unless new information comes to light that suggests otherwise, it is currently believed that he is alive and well.
There isn't much information available regarding Senta's personality due to his lack of appearance and relevant information in the series. It is evident that Senta is a mature and responsible adult from his role in the series.
He is loyal to the Akagi Gang and spent three years apart from his family following their leader’s orders and collecting the debt from Tsunade. Although it is also arguable that he did so for his family. He is a man of determination but at the same time, is also a little cowardly.
Senta has black eyes and short, spiky brown hair. To frame his face, he leaves two long strands of hair at the front. He was dressed in a greenish vest and a dark T-shirt underneath. On the top of his left leg, he carried a sword.
His head is covered in a greenish-colored gauze that is fastened on the right side. Additionally, he had long, black sleeves that reached his lower arms.
Senta was never seen unleashing his abilities in the Naruto series. Based on the fact he always had a sword on his personal, it is believed that he is trained in Kenjutsu and is capable of holding his own in a sword fight.
