Mahiru, Kakko, and Taiseki was a surveillance team sent by the Iwagakure village during the Third Shinobi War. He stepped outside to keep watch over the area where Team Minato was moving. He used roughly twenty shadow clones to attack the squad but Kakashi's Chidori wiped them all out.
Yet, in the end, he was able to counter the Chidori and if Minato Namikaze hadn't helped to get Kakashi to safety before putting a kunai to Mahiru's neck, he would have been successful in killing Kakashi. Before being executed, Mahiru expressed regret over not using the opportunity to escape.
Mahiru was someone who held grudges from other villages and was selfish about his life. He doesn’t care if the other village person is Genin or a kid; he just wants to kill them.
Mahiru was dressed in the Village Hidden in the Stone’s traditional shinobi outfit, which included a flak jacket, a shirt without a right sleeve and a dark indument that hung from his waist down his right leg to his knees. He wore a straightforward blue cloth forehead protection. He had two spiked ponytails in his hair, one sticking out from the top of his head and the other from his back.
Mahiru was skillful Jonin rank shinobi and could perform all the basic jutsus. By using kenjutsu in battle, Mahiru is able to defeat the young prodigy Kakashi because of his incredible speed and blade.
In addition to kenjutsu, Mahiru employs high-level ninjutsu such as Shadow Clone Technique, which can use up to twenty clones simultaneously. He was also adept at using Earth Release tactics to surprise opponents.
Mahiru has also appeared in the movie Naruto Shippuden the Movie: The Will of Fire.
