Hooguro is a slim young man, with blond hair in a chin-length bob that covers his left eye. He wears makeup over the right side of his face and a zebra-patterned scarf.
Hooguro seems to sometimes take advantage of people, as shown when he asked Kanae for more payment after noting that the employer is rich. Hooguro has also displayed a high degree of loyalty to his boss, Naki, as he said to his fellow subordinate, Miza, that he would kill her if she makes fun of his boss again.
Rose Extermination Edit
Hooguro is one of the hitmen hired by Kanae von Rosewald to take out the Quinx Squad. He and Shousei distracted Sasaki to separate him from his squad. The two ghouls and their fellow White Suits were easily overpowered by Sasaki though, causing them to flee in fear right after the rest of the Quinx Squad arrived back.
Rushima Landing Operation Edit
Post-Rushima Landing Operation Edit
Clown Siege Edit
In the years following the destruction of Dragon, Hooguro fell in love at first sight with a human woman he met at the Unified Front, and married her having a traditional ghoul wedding ceremony. They live together intimately. He devoted his life to serving Naki.
Hooguro has a great sense of loyalty to his boss, as he is willingly following Naki's leadership, even though knowing that Naki is not strategic and that he will meet eventual death from investigators. Hooguro states that the reason he is Naki's underling is because he wants to work for a boss that would remember him even after his death.
Hooguro and Yakumo's exact relationship is currently unknown, but it has been stated that he was once his underling before Yakumo's death. Hooguro also states that he thinks Yakumo is "super cool."
Powers and Abilities Edit
Ghoul Physiology: Due to his ghoul nature, Hooguro has a rinkaku kagune. His rating was assessed by Sasaki to be approximately A+ after he and Shousei fled.
- Rinkaku Kagune: Hooguro's kagune takes the form of two small and thin double jointed appendages emerging from the center of his upper back that meet and form a long and straight blade where they meet. The blade can easily cut straight through anyone he slashes at, as seen through his battle with the Oggai.
- Hooguro has been shown to give nicknames to other Aogiri members, an example being "Little Bin" for the Grave Robber.
- Hooguro shares the same birthday with Rize Kamishiro.
- Despite being a Rinkaku ghoul, Hooguro's kagune emerges from the center of his upper back.
