Hyuuga Hanabi is presently a 13 year old rookie chuunin. She was struggling to prove herself to her older peers, and mostly dealing with the things a gifted but young girl might deal with. Then she discovered the downside of talent - the fact that it means being noticed by people you don't want to be noticed by.
Recently, she involuntarily received a cursed seal from Orochimaru, who intended to recruit her for the new Sound Five he was forming. She managed to find the Nexus, and has been residing there since. She's also taken an interest in medical ninjutsu, and has been developing her skills in that area.
When not training, she enjoys ink painting, calligraphy and wood carving.
