At some point in the past he was seen by Yamato as an Anbu member. Later he was sent on a mission and was ordered to pretend to go missing so he could infiltrate Amegakure for Danzō Shimura and the village elders. He was ordered to find out info on the recent Amegakure attacks Danzō.
Tatsuji has long chin length grey-coloured hair and his bangs hang over his forehead. He is seen wearing a Amegakure flak jacket with a large black scarf around his neck that hangs down the front of his body. He also has small black eyes that have a small very thin black marking underneath them.
Tatsuji is a powerful shinobi, whose skills allowed him to infiltrate Amegakure, a village known for being almost impossible to penetrate, due to Pain's tight control over the populace. He was also was a trusted member of the Konohagakure's Anbu.
Twelve Guardian Ninja
He was seen outside the village meeting with Danzō. During this meeting many Anbu members were sent to capture him and Danzō. He was tied up and brought back to Konoha for interrogation. Yamato told the others that he is actually a Konoha shinobi. Before the real interrogation was to begin, Koharu and Homura showed up telling Tsunade and the others that he is actually working for them. He was presumably released after this.
- Tatsuji may have been based on Tatsuji Suga (菅辰次, Suga Tatsuji) who was a military officer that was kidnapped by his enemies.
