Midori seemed to be very confident in his own abilities.
Midori had long grey hair and his sideburns went down into a beard. He kept his hair in a pony tail in the back and he also wore a pair of reddish-coloured glasses with black lenses. He wore a black Kusagakure bandanna-styled forehead protector which was tied in the back. He wore a big white jacket with a white shirt underneath it and a very light bluish-coloured scarf around his neck with one end of the scarf hanging down the front of him. The scarf had orange lines on it. His jacket was held closed with strings.
He and Shiba were the personal guards of an unnamed daimyō during the Chūnin Exams. They were assigned to make sure Gaara lost to Sasuke Uchiha, making their daimyō win a bet with another daimyō. When they attempted to intimidate Gaara to lose, they greatly offended the young jinchūriki, who proceeded to brutally crush Shiba to death, and then Midori, who tried to flee in terror, died shortly after; his death was witnessed by Naruto Uzumaki and Shikamaru Nara, who were too scared to take any action as Midori screamed for help in vain as he was dragged back into the hallway to die like his partner. Shiba and Midori's deaths managed to quench Gaara's blood-lust, thus saving Naruto and Shikamaru from suffering the same fate.
