|Appears in||Anime only|
Ten years prior to the formation of the Allied Shinobi Forces, Suiren was part of Ganryū's team that was tasked with retrieving a scroll along with a team from Iwagakure taken by Kumogakure shinobi. After retrieving the document, Suiren was excited for the prospects of peace that a mission like this would bring. She was, however, wrong as Iwagakure betrayed them. After Junsai was killed, Suiren sacrificed herself in order to protect Ganryū. This incident which come to be known as the Tragedy of Yosuga Pass marked the beginning of hostility between Kirigakure and Iwagakure.
Suiren was a kind and loving person who dearly held onto the ideals of peace. After their mission was seemingly completed she spoke openly of what an alliance like this between Kirigakure and Iwagakure would mean for the shinobi world. She deeply loved her team-mates, as seen that she didn't mind protecting Ganryū from a barrage of kunai despite having been severely wounded earlier.
Suiren had brown eyes and long blonde hair with two strands framing her heart shaped face. She wore a pair of earrings along with the standard attire of the Kirigakure-nin complete with forehead protector and flak jacket, along with the jade-green bangle that was worn by her team.
After her death, Ganryū decided to avenge his two team-mates, leading a group of shinobi who also held a hostility against Iwagakure. The Third Tsuchikage, knowing that Ganryū held a hostility against Iwagakure, ordered Kurotsuchi and Akatsuchi to retrieve her bangle, in order to apologise for what happened ten years ago. Because Akatsuchi was wounded in his fight with Ganryū, Chōjūrō gave the bangle to him instead. Later, her plans for peace in the ninja world were passed on by Ganryū, to Naruto Uzumaki.
- Suiren's name means "water lily".
- Suiren greatly resembles a member of Kirigakure's Cypher Division that was seen in the manga.
- (To Ganryū and Junsai) "If this mission is a success, we will show the rest of the lands that there is solidarity between Iwagakure and Kirigakure. That way we can get a little bit closer to peace."
- (Last words, to Ganryū) "I wish I could have seen… peace…"
