Sawaii child

Sawaii as a child.

Sawaii is the granddaughter of Hiruzen Sarutobi and Biwako Sarutobi, the only cousin of Konohamaru as well as the niece of Asuma. Sawaii was only two months old on the day the Kyuubi attacked Konoha, and she lost both of her parents during the assault. Because of this, she was taken in by the Third Hokage who was the only known relative at the time. Hiruzen raised her alongside Konohamaru who became Sawaii's playmate. He would rarely let Sawaii outside, confining her indoors to teach her the manners and essences of a ninja. Despite her relations to the Sarutobi, Sawaii chose to keep her surname "Hitomi" (人見, Hitomi) in remembrance of her late mother, Sayu Hitomi.

When Sawaii was around 6 years old, she met Hibiki Ren, who later becomes one of her teammates. Sawaii soon entered the Academy and was placed in the same class as the soon-to-be Rookie 9. She befriends Sakura and Ino, along with others.

At first, her classmates would usually speak to her using honorifics and with respect due to her status. However, later, she explained to her friends that she preferred being called by her own name instead of "Honorable Granddaughter" (お孫娘様 Omago musume-sama), since she wanted to be treated like everyone else instead of the Third Hokage's granddaughter. This results to a change of treatment among her friends which made her happy to be accepted as one of them. 

Her lack of height and small figure sometimes being made as target for bullies. They would insult her by calling her "kusogaki" (spoiled brat) or "chibi" (runt). Still, she never felt offended and paid no mind to them, responding with smiles. Moreover, she then learned that bullying helped her to grow better confidence and inner strength.

Sawaii in Team Yoruha.

Early in the series, Sawaii was not a bright student, as she was very weak academically and was not interested in studying. Her grandfather however insisted on her becoming a full-fledged ninja and later on, after learning how her parents had died, she became determined to become a strong kunoichi. 

At first she was known to be proficient in using kunai and shuriken, but did not have a strong stamina and had poor chakra control. She was also limited in her taijutsu abilities. When Sawaii graduated, she is placed in a genin cell with Hibiki Ren and Izanami Seimei, and their sensei is Shin Yoruha. Their team is currently known as Team Yoruha. Together with her team, Sawaii develops her ninjutsu ability and other skills fully under guidance of her Sensei throughout the series.


During Part I, Sawaii is seen as never serious as she likes to make funny jokes and getting into trouble with her comrades. This is because she rarely get to play outside with other kids due to her grandfather order to always stay home and learn manners. Konohamaru somehow influenced Sawaii's playfull personality as they always play together. Her lack of patience and over confidence sometimes lead her to failure which is according to Ren and Yoruha, practically sum up her overall personality. Yet, she has a strong determination to always try and never give up that to some extent, her will is praised highly by Tsunade and her comrades.

In the pre-time skip, Sawaii is shown to be the bright side of Sasuke. Being one of Orochimaru's subordinate, she did not comsumed by hatred as much as Sasuke did. She maintains her cheerful yet naughty personality which sometimes happens to set a purpose for a comic relief.

During Part II, she is changed into more mature and focus in her goal. Forgetting her vengence, she wishes to continue her childhood dream of being a great kunoichi that her late grandfather wanted her to be. Upon leaving Orochimaru 's hideout, she felt a huge amount of guilt for betraying Konoha after learning Orochimaru's and Sasuke's evil intentions. She learned her mistakes and decided to rebuilt anew during her imprisonment by Tsunade's order. She showed more concerned on her team, more teamwork and protective. After she returned to Konoha, Sawaii took care of Konohamaru and turns to be more motherly towards him as well as over-protective. Their bonds grows deeper throughout the series. 

She's very emotional when it comes to bullying and stands up for people in similar situations. This is shown where she managed to save Ren from being bullied during when they were kids. Her bravery to stand up for others is insipred from Ino who she adored.

Sawaii is fair-skinned, with blue eyes. Her signature trait is her long orange hair, usually tied in a ponytail and with bangs similar to Sakura's and Tsunade's. Sawaii was often bullied due to her small height and body.

First Shippuden outfit she wore during early Shippuden series

In Part I, her long orange hair was tied into a high ponytail with a small ribbon, both ends each had a small purple bell attached. She wore a sleeveless purple dress with gold designs, purple arm warmers and standard blue shinobi sandals. She wears her "hitai-ate" (forehead protecter) on her waist similar to Ino Yamanaka.

In Part II, she wears a purple jacket and a black, short-sleeved blouse underneath, a dark purple skirt with a slit in the middle, black boots with heels, and long black gloves that reach up to her elbows. She ties her hair into a low ponytail using her "hitai-ate" (forehead protector).

She later appears wearing a new outfit due her last one being torn up during a nearly fatal clashes with Ren Hibiki. Her new outfit consists of a shorter purple jacket and she wears black, short-sleeved dress with a different design.During the Fourth Shinobi World War, she dons the standard uniform of the Alliance and a Konohagakure flak jacket.



Sawaii rarely uses taijutsu, but is capable of fighting opponents with it, even those stronger than her, but it is mostly just used for defensive purposes. To become a chūnin, she was told she needed to improve her taijutsu skills in order to be able to better fight her opponents, and she trained a lot for this. Her taijutsu skills developed under Sasuke's teachings, and later on she under the guidance of Tsunade and Sakura.

Sawaii using Crystal

Sawaii using crystal.

Sawaii inherited from her mother the Crystal Release (晶遁, Shoton; English TV "Crystal Style"), which enables users from the Hitomi clan to produce purple crystal that can be utilized for attack, defense and other purposes. It can be countered by fire, lightning and wind elements, or good chakra control. In her mother's clan, Sawaii is the third known user of the element and became the only user in Konoha after the death of her mother.

Earlier in the series, she was unable to produce enough chakra to use the crystal element. Despite having it, she never trained using the Crystal Release due to the fact that there is no other user that master the element. Her potential with Crystal Release was unleashed during the time she spent with Orochimaru, where she became able to produce a great amount of chakra to create huge crystal shields. She was also able to produce crystal needles to attack the enemy. Sawaii mostly uses her Crystal Release during battles with stronger enemies or whenever it is necessary.


Medical Ninjutsu

In the beginning of the series, Sawaii was not skilled in chakra control. But throughout Part I, and, by Part II, she worked hard to become better, and improved to the point that she could gather a great amount of chakra for medical use. Her medical ninjutsu developed under the teachings of Kabuto.

Along with medical ninjutsu, Kabuto taught Sawaii about poisons as well. She skilled in identifying, making and countering poison by making antidotes. She also learned how to identify herbal medicines. Her medical ability was useful in helping Kabuto and Orochimaru with their experiments, along with helping Sasuke with his injuries.

When she returned to Konoha, she begged Tsunade for her guidance in order to develop her medical ability further. Thus, Tsunade takes Sawaii as one of her apprentices and she begins to works alongside Sakura at Konoha's hospital, making Sakura her "Senpai" (Senior). Under proper training from Tsunade and Shizune, Sawaii learned how to use poison with weapons such as kunai, shuriken and poisonous crystal needles. She also learned how to make strong soldier pills for her team. Although she was still below Sakura's level of medical ability, she was acknowledged as one of the best medical ninja at Konoha.

Mostly in the series, she focused on excelling in the medical arts, along with healing patients and working as a surgeon with Sakura, Ino and Shizune, since she wished to be as good as Sakura.
