To prevent Hiruzen from being reinstated as Hokage,Danzō gave Tsuchinoe and nine other Root members a mission to assassinate him. Disguised as a foreign kunoichi, she fought the Anbu accompanying her target, who turned out to be a disguised Kakashi, resulting in the mission's failure.
Tsuchinoe has shoulder length purple hair. She wears a standard Anbu attire, an her mask is bear-like, with red markings, with a scar pattern going from the left eye hole towards the cheek.
As an Anbu, Tsuchinoe is presumably a powerful kunoichi. She wields a sword during combat.
