Retsu and Biwako Sarutobi met with Kushina Uzumaki and Minato Namikazeshortly before Kushina was to give birth. Because Kushina was a jinchūriki, Hiruzen thought it best for Kushina to give birth at a secure location where Minato could maintain the seal, guarded by ANBU and with Biwako, Retsu, and Taji as her midwives. While they were on their way to the location, Kushina stopped to speak with Mikoto Uchiha who had just had her own baby. Retsu expresses a great happiness at Mikoto naming her son after Hiruzen's father, while Biwako was surprised. Shortly after Biwako and Taji were attacked and killed, Retsu escaped through the use of genjutsu.
Retsu is known for being wise, like Biwako, and has been an advisor for her grand-daughter on several occasions, namely Sasuke Uchiha, and is viewed as being sage-like in this manner. However, she is considerably protective towards Akira, as she expressed an anger towards Naruto Uzumaki when he arrived at the Hitomu household after upsetting Akira, although she quickly became supportive towards him again.
Retsu is short old woman, being only 3'9" in Part 1 and only growing two centimeters in the time-skip. She has grey-silver hair held back in a bun on the back of her head, and soft blue eyes, although her eyes are typically seen closed. She has several wrinkles on her face and pronounced cheek bones.
