After passing the Chūnin exams along with Murasaki the two friends became Chūnin. One night they were assigned a mission to escort Bashi to the Land of Water, before they made it to the border they were attacked by a large group of bandits and Muraski told him to continue on without her loosing her life in the process.

Haibun has short, loosely styled blonde hair, light-blue eyes, and wears priest-like attire that makes him resemble somewhat of a Monk. He first wears a white shawl that encompasses all around the upper part of his body from his neck to elbow length. He then wears a Deacon's cross with a skull on it over the shawl. Under the shawl is a black, ecclesiastical robe. The sleeves of the robe have white crosses on. The front of the robe also has a portion made of grey fabric that almost makes the robe look like a double-breasted overcoat. This section of the robe has six visible black buttons on it that are symmetrically separated on opposite sides of the grey part to the robe. These buttons also have a cross design. Justin finally wears a pair of black pants, loafers, and a white Zucchetto for a hat.
Haibun's personality can be described as polite and zealous. He is seen smiling numerous times in the series and addresses his peers and enemies with suffixes. He does not openly look down on anyone, nor chastises them, yet is prepared to kill when he is given orders from Sen Uchiha.
