Hinomaru (ひのまる, hinomaru) is a highly-ranked possession-type demon blade that layed hidden from mankind til Kyoukou Uzumaki found the blade by sheer "luck" after fighting the three tailed and Eight Tailed jinchuriki during the Six Year Ryouseika War, Hinomaru and Kyoukou formed a blood contract with each other becoming a permanent weapon for her master.
AppearanceHinomaru appears as an androgynous adolescent female with long unkempt neon blue hair that goes past her back with her bangs cut short above her eyebrows, She wears a a black bodysuit that has a opening that expose her breast, sleeveless black jacket that covers her chest with the zipper only halfway closed from up to down exposing her midriff and some cleavage she also uses black, fingerless gloves, the left of which extends to her elbow. As a ghoul-gone-demon, she has neon sky blue eyes with her pupils being neon green, rows of fangs, and round ears. When kyoukou gives into her chakra her hair grows along with her nails and teeth. Occasionally hinomaru would wear bikini's when she is in her mental space within the sword dipping in a ocean that stretches for hours but she more respectively wears her signature reaveling bikini's.
Hinomaru exists as a mental concept, she can appear as anyone within Kyoukou's memories she chooses. She often takes the forms of his dead classmates or his sensei. She chooses not to cause it would break her moral of being a respectful weapon to her master knowing he's a man who is respected and a very generous master swordsman, the sword and hinomaru herself are unique for being a sentient weapon that gains nourishment from the flesh and chakra of others and, as such, the blade is at its happiest when engorged with blood and chakra that possesses both a distinctive and pleasant flavour. She apparently enjoys Kyoukou's chakra since, according to hinomaru herself, he tastes like teriyaki chicken smothered in wasabi spice. his daughter Muni Uzumaki possessed immense chakra that she even tastes exquisitely sweet for hinomaru that would cause the sword undergo a food crazed frenzy.
Hinomaru shares a symbiotic relationship with its wielder, similar to that of the kikaichū and the infamous Samehada which both continuously feed off they're masters it requires large sum of chakra to keep the bond of host and creature strong. Although it continuously begs to be fed the blade itself gives the user it's similar properties allowing the user to harden his body to withstand strong blows even up close explosions, Hinomaru displays demonic traits such being able to give the master much demonic traits making him look like a demon.
Hinomaru is a blood-thirsty demon who was originally a ghoul. She delights in biting off a piece of kyoukou's flesh and goes into a giddy high after he feeds it to her for the first time like a child eating her first ice cream, even as a demon of lust and power, she is described as particularly aggressive and lustful when he first met the soul that is sword but it took him a long couple of years to gain the spirit's trust helping her to open up to humanity but she could only open up to him since he was one of the only humans she ever trusted. Like all demons and tailed beast, she is manipulative and uses her body, or promises power for revenge to get what she wants but this manipulative tactic never seemed to effect Kyoukou. In her past having previous wielders she was able to take over the bodys of her "unworthy" masters, Kōka finds it entertaining to see her master all flustered up and embarrassed.
Hinomaru thinks of humans as power hungry, greedy creatures who kills their own kind for more power. She considers them to be dimwitted, foolish race who will destroy the world, and also loves to belittle any human she sees within the sword.
Hinomaru became a demon. Several Millennium ago, hinomaru was a ghoul known as Akane Hirasaka born from an unknown royal family. She was denied of becoming queen of her family's growing empire by her father and other relatives, enraged with greed akane went out and began secretly poisoning the lake her family and along with countless people drank from hoping to kill them off quickly but was found out by her twin sister Yu Hirasaka; the twin ,being ratted out by her sister akane placed a curse on the twin before herself was sealed for this cause the twin sister to become a cursed pseudo-demon sword.
Thousands of years passed along with sword being known as hinomaru became a infamous blade passed down from generation to generation since the sage of six paths era in the land of ancestors, Hinomaru was eventually acquired by fuyuku fujin but he was murdered by his pupil taking the sword with him and utilized it's power as a true master during the warring era, and at some point, the sword was utilised by Jiren Hōzuki who spent his life time mastering and bonding with hinomaru who in return bonded bestowed Jiren it's trust. Upon jiren dying on his deathbed from a mysterious illness, Kyoukou Uzumaki, found the sword after it became lost from time over the years.
Kyoukou and Hinomaru's chakra signatures eventually became identical, and Kyoukou became regarded as a Demon (鬼, Oni). When Kyoukou became a village head, he took hinomaru with him.
During Kyoukou's initial fight with Tenji and keifuku, hinomaru grew fond of the taste of Kyoukou's particular flesh and chakra and ultimately kept Kyoukou safe from danger by amplifying his body in a dark chakra shrouds.
After many years being Kyoukou's initial weapon, Hinomaru opens up to Kyoukou about her past and last master mourning him even after death, not only bestowing the blade with even more life-like characteristics but also standing as a testament to the bond shared between the two. Now in kyoukou's possession, hinomaru kept his gunbai and other weapon varieties within it to better assist him.
