Hina is the sister of the Land of Water Daimyō and was originally born in Kirigakure. Being in the Seika clan as a woman, Hina will receive a curse seal which will shorten her life span to twenty five years old by giving her powerful techniques to use but the seal is uncontrollable meaning Hina would not be able to control it as it will go berserk if she uses it. Hina never met her parents because their lives were shorten. She was jealous of her older brother whom didn't receive the seal just because of his gender. When Hina joined the academy, everyone was scared of her, her brother had friends while she didn't. A lot of people talk behind her back which made her upset, she focuses on her goal instead of wasting time on arguing it back. Though a girl named Rena offered to become her friend. Rena and Hina became close friends, she didn't know how to communicate with Rena because she was the only person who talked to her besides her brother. Rena supported Hina and her goal of becoming a Mizukage. After graduating from the academy, she was placed in a genin team (unnamed members). Three years later, she got promoted to be a Chūnin. A few years after graduation, By default, Hina was kidnapped by a wealthy old man when she was sixteen years old because he wanted to use her for her abilities and throw her away when she dies. She was forced to marry him and become "Queen" of the hidden castle so he can gain the rights to use her, the man did not know the consequences of marrying Hina at all but though of course Hina denied, the man blindfolded her so she could not use her seal and brought her to his room, he intended to r@pe her but failed when she kicked him and took her blindfold off. She was thrown into a dark room that she called a "Di Lo (地牢)" meaning Dungeon in Teochew, until she agrees to marry him. She was forbidden to eat because she would use the seal on them, she started to worn out day by day, she didn't want to wait till she has no energy left. She later got a plan to escape. Hina called one of the guards and said she would agree to marry him, when the guard starts unlocking the door, Hina ran to the opposite direction where the door is because she knows where each doors are after escaping from the man. Hina was eventually corned by the guards. The door was locked, the man ultimately came to see her. Hina used her seal to kill them off one by one and went of a rampage after the seal went berserk. She used her seal to create swords, after killing the guards of, she walked towards the man and stabbed him 183 times. Most of the guards managed to escape. Rena, the only person who witnessed her killing the man, stood in front of her. Rena was finding Hina because she went missing for days. Rena did not frame Hina of doing anything, instead she questioned Hina about what she was doing. Hina stuttered as she talked and explain. Rena comforted her. When her brother knew about this, he ordered people to break down the place leading the kidnapper's wife and son to be homeless and also criminals. He didn't blame Hina for killing the man. Hina told Rena and her brother she would migrate to Konohagakure because she feels unsafe in the village, traumatized too. Her respected her choice to migrate to Konohagakure. Rena eventually begs to come with her, Hina kept denying. Rena kept on begging which led Hina to agree. On the way there, those same guards came to take revenge, Hina's brother didn't capture them all. This time, they brought over 1000 people. Hina didn't know why they would do this just to capture her. Rena and Hina teamed up to fight them but was too weak compared to them. They tried to escape but Rena was later on hunted and executed. Hina lost faith in humanity.
She eventually migrated to Konohagakure, she was awfully tired when she finally got there, a man her age helped her and told her his name is Suijin Saitou. At first she denied his help while being traumatized because of Rena getting executed, the memories kept flashing back to her head as she followed Suijin. She was brought in to his house and met his parents and sibling. Suijin kept her in a safe room, he let her calm down while comforting her. As time goes by, she felt comfortable with him and often trains with him. She discarded her dream on being a Mizukage and focuses on her health. Suijin help her make a grave for Rena which they often visit. Suijin and Hina is close to the point they got married after four years of staying in the clan. Hina met lots of people and ended up becoming friends with them without them being scared of her, she was close to Kushina Uzumaki and Makoto Uchiha as they were her first friends. Sano Saitou and Miyu Arima then moves out because of them getting framed of murder, this brought hatred from the villagers to the Saitou clan. A year later, everyone figured out they weren't the murderers. At the age of twenty, Suijin asks Hina to marry him, Hina then rejects him. Suijin asks Hina to reason why she would reject him. Hina then explains deeply about the curse seal and how it shorten both their lives if they married. Suijin smiled and told her no matter if he will die, he would still die peacefully die with her. After getting married, Suijin had a seal on his forehead too but not the same design and it did not give him any power.
One day before their last day, their curse was unknowingly broken. Her techniques still remain the same while her life span increases (though it still makes her go berserk when using it), the seal stays permanently on their forehead. Hina finally figured out why the curse was broken, a few days before their marriage, they both drank the tea made from a blessed lake (originated from Kirigakure) which is a tradition in the Saitou clan to do so since it symbolizes harmony, peace, spiritual enlightenment, spiritual awakening, spiritual connection, rejuvenation, refreshment, change and contentment. It went against the curse. After learning this, Suijin decided to build a shrine for the family making it a tradition to drink tea before marriage and also visit the shrine once every five years. She was happy it did not passed onto her children. They then had a son named Saburo Saitou two years after Sawako Saitou was born. During the Third Shinobi World war, Hina remains home looking after Saburo. It is true that she might have settled down and retired to be a housewife but she can still fight.
After three years, while Suijin and Hina were talking together outsid, a maid named Sumiko approached them and bowed while holding a baby. Hina was confused and asked why she is bowing, she explained that her mistress passed away while giving birth to "Hitomi", the baby and that her husband had killed himself because of this and died together. Before her mistress, passed away, she named her baby Hitomi, she told the maid to bring her to her former fiance, Suijin. Suijin stood up and clenched his fist, he stared at the baby with hatred, Hina asked if it's true that he had a former fiance, Suijin nodded and told her they ended their relationship after he found out she cheated. Sumiko explained that there would be no one taking care of Hitomi if they don't take her in, they were the only people her mistress can depend on. Hina told Suijin that his former fiance cheating on him isn't Hitomi's fault and should reconsider her life cause it all depends on him.Suijin told the maid she would take care of Hitomi instead of Hina since Hina is pregnant. Sumiko thank him, Hina told the maids to make a room for them. She had a baby girl named Sayaka Saitou, a year later, she had another baby girl named Sayuki Saitou. Though, during her pregnancy with Sayuki, Satara Saitou, Suijin's sister had to choose to kill herself in order to save Sayuki. They need Satara's blood to keep Sayuki alive because she's the only female adult Saitou alive with pure Saitou blood. If she gives up the blood she would die, she was pressured by Suijin not to do it because if a Saitou member does any blood transfusion, all their blood would be transfused leaving them with only two choice, death or being forever hospitalized. Satara was able to survive the blood transfusion, she knew she'll die any sooner because she knew herself that her containing negative chakra would be revealed. Though not too long after, her hair changed to black which resembles her path of death and darkness. Having dark hair is prohibited in the Saitou clan unless it's technique-related and it will result execution because it's opposing to their hair color and it will put the whole Saitou clan in danger since it's the result of revealing negative chakra. She is said to be born due to negative chakra which made Hina view her as someone dangerous yet harmless at the same time due to Satara's kind personality. She later on executed and saved the whole clan from carrying the burden of the "negative chakra". Hina already knew the truth of her origins, but decided to keep it a secret in order to spare Satara's feelings despite the fact that she knows the truth will inevitably be revealed eventually which did. At first, Hina was very cautious of Satara because of her negative chakra. Hina initially attempts to keep Satara at a distance, but they inadvertently grow closer. After Satara's sacrife, they greatly developed their sisterly relationship, But Hina still view her as a threat to the Saitou clan because of her problematic situation and her naivety which makes her easy to be manipulated and used by others, this changed when Satara confronted Hina by opening up to her which resulted for the two to have complete trust towards one another. After Satara's death and Sayuki's birth, Suijin was neglectful towards her and later on her siblings. A month later she was happy one of her close friends gave birth to another baby boy. Sasuke Uchiha. When Kushina's pregnant with Naruto, she was also seen with Mikoto and Kushina talking together. They met up her while walking through the streets with Mikoto and so, Mikoto introduced Sasuke to her and Biwako Sarutobi. Hina told her that she had a baby girl recently named Sayuki Saitou. When Mikoto explains about Sasuke's name, Hina told them that she only named them because of the clan. Kushina's hopes that their sons would become friends, Kushina told her that Sayuki and Sayaka can marry Sasuke and Naruto in the future so they can become in-laws but Hina told her that it should be their choice to choose who they wanted to marry. And when Kushina asked Mikoto and Hina whether or not childbirth was painful, Mikoto laughed while looking at Hina, having found the one thing that Kushina was seemingly afraid of. Hina told her it's hard to give birth; Hina wishes her goodluck and hope she and the baby will be safe. From this conversation, they were the only ones of the few to be aware of Naruto's identity as Minato and Kushina's son.
During the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack, Hina was at home looking after her children while her husband is out handling the situation. She was extremely terrified about the attack. In the anime, after the Nine-Tails was stopped, Hina and Mikoto went to the hospital to check on Kushina's newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki, Hina cried on Mikoto's shoulder as she is saddened by her first friend's death. Hina wanted to adopt Naruto but knew she can't because she is a Saitou and taking care of Naruto would mean involving him with her clan. She wasn't just any Saitou, but a Jonin, the wife of the head of the clan who also happened to be the one of the most important man in the whole village.
As Sayuki grew up, Sayuki asked why Naruto was ignored by everyone when she thought he was cute and cool. Hina looked saddened about her question and told her she should play with him sometimes but of course Sayuki was then forbidden by other people in the village not too as she was going to the heiress and her reputation is going to look bad. Hina wasn't able to do anything about this and hopes for the best for Naruto.
After years, Suijin told her he's going to dye his hair Black-brown because dark hair is better at camouflaging damage than light hair. One day, Sayuki asked Hina why Suijin didn't like her that much, Hina called her a silly girl and before she could finish, Suijin came in and said "Don't be sick. I'll do anything within my power for you. so always keep your health and be happy." he said before leaving the room. Hina smiled and patted her before leaving with Suijin.
Hina is a kind and quiet person, she often cares about her family most. She is headstrong and impulsive, she would go on rampages using her curse seal killing people without feeling guilt at all. This is also the reason why a lot of people are scared of her, she is also elegant when doing things. Hina often worries about Sayuki most as she is always in her room with Ayumi. When Hina heard about Sayuki's dreams of becoming a Jonin, she ultimately supports her and have faith on her. As seen, Hina was upset about Suijin changing Sayuki's heiress status. Hina is usually calm, laid back and sweet to her children, while at it she likes to cook, she was complemented by everyone in her family. Hina can be extremely cruel-hearted when it comes to the person she hates. Despite feeling traumatized about the time she almost got r@ped by the old man, she is still easy going and a collect women. Hina is still a supportive, independent, and a caring mother, she often teaches her daughters how to cook. Hina is a responsible women too. She would also take Sayuki to have pinic under the cherry blossom trees when Sayuki's free from school, as Hina wants Sayuki to come out. Hina likes to explain how she used to dream of becoming a Mizukage as a kid while this reminds Sayuki of Naruto Uzumaki. Hina said she supports Naruto, she has faith in her best friend's child and hopes he is doing okay. Hina is quiet violent when it comes to her children doing bad things, she would slap them with no guilt and a straight face as she did to Hitomi when she drowned Sayuki in the water. Hina is also very stubborn in a majority of time, when Hina got put in the Allied Mother Force by Suijin Saitou, she constantly argued back saying she is not a weak women and she will not sit and do nothing while her family goes to war. She would not back down until she gets put in the Allied Shinobi Force, she would say things like; she has enough power to fight opponents which Suijin told her it's dangerous for her to use her power there and it would harm everyone including their allies. It is revealed Hina is determined on what she wants and this led her to practice controlling it day and night. She finally got her seal under control and got put in the Allied Shinobi Force. Aside from this, Hina is a calm and respectful women.

As someone who experienced what it's like being a Kunoichi, she had become a Chunin at the age of 15 and a Jōnin at the age of 22.
