Hina is a tall and slim woman with long hair reaching down to her back and framing her face on both sides with two locks. Although her hair is featured as pink in the manga and pinkish-blonde in the anime, Oda initially coloured it golden blonde. She has a womanly figure, with large breasts, and is somewhat attractive to the Marines that are under her command, as well as to certain pirates. She has dark brown eyes and always wears red lipstick. She is sometimes seen smoking.
During her first appearance, she wore a purple suit with a white blouse underneath, and a pair of dark brown shoes.
Her second attire consists of a purple shirt, with golden motifs on the front and a large neckline revealing her ample breasts, with matching long pants and high-heeled shoes. She also sports a bead necklace around her neck, and dons a pair of purple sunglasses, either covering her eyes or on her forehead. This outfit is accompanied, when she is on duty or out of battle, by a standard Marine coat draped over her shoulders like a cape, much like many other ranked officers.
She usually puts on a pair of dark brown gloves for battle.
As child she had the same haircut as now but with shorter hair. She wore a plain, stripped dress and sandals. She was depicted as keeping several petbirds in cages, in reference to her devil fruit.
Hina has a tendency to speak in the third person, though this only seems to add to her attractiveness for her subordinates. It is normal for young children in Japan to refer to themselves by using their own names like "Hina fail". This is seen as "cute". For her part, however, she coldly spurns any advances made towards her. She has been shown to have respect for nearly everyone, even her enemies, seeing as she could coolly admit that she lost to Luffy.
She is usually followed around by her two admirers Jango and Fullbody. While she finds them a bother and coldly turns away all their efforts to win her affection (thinking of them somewhat as "dorks" more than anything), she still however allows them to become (and remain) her subordinates.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As a marine captain, Hina has command over lower-ranking subordinates. She has proven to be quite perceptive, as she was able to see through Miss Goldenweek's, Mr. 5's and Miss Valentine's disguises by looking at their wanted posters.
She has received the nickname "Hina the Black Cage" because of her Ori Ori no Mi ability, a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit that allows her to form restraints on people by swiping her limbs through them. She can also let others pass through her body, in the process getting trapped in a ring of iron. She can also extend her arms to form a cage to produce the same effects to people who pass through its bars.
Aside from being a tough Marine and a Devil Fruit user, Hina also has at her disposal the Black Cage Corps (黒檻部隊 Kuroori Butai?). So far only "Black Cage Corps: Black Spear Squadron" has been seen.
Years ago, she was at the Marine academy training alongside Smoker. While she was a shining example of a student, Smoker was a troublemaker and Hina had to bail him out on several occasions.
Recruiting Two IdiotsEdit
Baroque Works SagaEdit
Battle at AlabastaEdit
Hina was formally introduced during the attack on the Straw Hat Pirates at Alabasta as they were trying to leave. She was forced out of formation by Mr. 2 using his Mane Mane no Mi powers to trick her. Later she had no other choice but to give up chasing them after Luffy threw the spears the "Black Cage Corps: Black Spear Squadron" had fired at them back in their direction, damaging the ships much to Hina's annoyance.
Capturing Baroque WorksEdit
She was next seen in the Miss Goldenweek's "Operation: Meet Baroque Works" mini-series capturing Miss Valentine. She was once again tricked by Mr. 2's Mane Mane no Mi powers when he disguised himself this time as Mr. 3.

Gathering at MarinefordEdit
War at MarinefordEdit
Three hours before Ace's execution, she was seen listening to Sengoku's speech about Ace's past. She later attacked Luffy but he activated Gear Second to dodge Hina's attempt to ensnare him, Hina then ended up attacking her own allies. She was then seen silently admitting defeat to herself.
At the end of the war, she was seen standing next to her fellow marines.
