Dual masks that together work as one, the one beneath is a black glass mask, works as a visor for sensor/doujutsu and various hud sensor jutsu. The glass is fragile and can easily be shattered. Above the black glass is the metal guard, the second mask which acts as the basic defense for the glass. The metal guard vibrates out the force during collision in order to protect the glass beneath. Fuuinjutsu for breathing on the mask, listening as well.

PersonalityShow
Hotaru’s personality is mostly being quiet. This shinobi rarely talks and she only does so when she needs to. Sometimes people think that Hotaru can’t speak. When enraged the girl will see that the enemy should be punished for enraging her and she will not stop until she sees it through. But that only happens on rare occasions because the girl is very calm and collected. As a "perfect spy" should be, or at least that's what she considers herself.

During battles Hotaru tends to analyze her enemies, she usually doesn't waste her chakra on unnecessary attacks and will most likely just try to escape unless she has no choice. When fighting with a partner she tends to act a bit more protective and tries to get everyone out of the situation, although she keeps her back covered since she doesn't really trust anyone.

Hotaru will try to avoid any confrontation if its possible, unless she is bugged enough to be provoked, off duty to test the waters and if the mission demands it. She is a firm believer that the mission goes first and will do anything to succeed. Her life goals are to become the greatest and help hidden cloud succeeded in its plans. No matter what!
HistoryShow
Somewhere in the Lightning Country a baby was born. This young girl was given a name Nonki, Hotaru. Her mother fell ill when she gave birth to her and died a couple of hours later. The girl grew up without a mother and instead was raised by her father. When she grew up she had to spend a lot of time at her neighbor because her father had to work hard all the time. They did not even have enough to let kid roll in to the academy so her father started robbing people as their main source of payment but it did not take long time before he was arrested.

The only course of action the young child could take was to run away and hide. During her time alone she figured it would be safer to start pretending that she was a boy. She had heard by her father what people could do to young girls. So as a "boy" she started picking up where her father left off, she started pick pocketing random strangers, using her size to her advantage. It was here the young girl learned to be stealthy, using the shadow as her friend. In fact at the time it was her only friend, it was during this time that the young girl started crafting her alter ego "Mumei", she would start using it instead of her original name, and not use her last name "Nonki" since it didn't really mean anything to her anymore. It didn't take long before she had mastered the art of staying hidden although this confidence lead to her biggest mistake/fortune. One of the targets the young girl had picked was a well known ninja that was passing by, to her surprise she managed to pick pocket the famed ninja but as she was making her way back to her hideout the theif was stopped by the ninja she had mugged.

He introduced himself as Hayate and he told her that he could see the potential in the young girl. He would protect her under his wing and train her to become the best in her craft.. So for the last couple of years the girl's life took a turn for the better. She would soon start her training among the shinobi she had dreamed of becoming part of. Although because she spent most of her time outside of the academy as a child she never really mastered the art of ninjutsu, although she did get the hang of genjutsu. However, she focused more on training her hand to hand combat skills and mostly her "ninja" skills. Ergo, she has trained to perfect her stealth abilities and believes to be one of the greater ninjas out there. Hopefully soon she could also become the best spy out there as well. She felt that she never really fit in within the village walls and living alone wasn't really making this transition any better. Since she was already invisible once she took a step inside the village the young girl used her skills to become invisible. Within the academy, Hotaru would spy on most of her class mates. Hiding by the shadows, watching the kids play with others, picking up information for later use and from time to time "Yoho" would bump in to them, apologize and continue on her path. Stealing minor objects from them, then plant them on other student's lockers, wanting to see how they would react.

It didn't take long before Hayate enrolled "Yoho" into the chuunin exam with a random team, although being a loner in the heart the girl performed her best and did what was necessary to rank up. It was during this time that the girl used her partners to lure out her target and do what was necessary, it didn't take long for the girl to win and become a chuunin. Most only know little about this young ninja, which was perfect. As an observer the girl grew up wanting to be the ultimate spy, but that would mean that only a few people would know Hotaru's real personality, although what she feared most that in the end she wouldn't be able to keep her alter egos apart, which prompted her to start writing in a diary.
