Hinoki is a very mysterious person in Betterman. Probably the second most mysterious. (I'd say "Betterman" is the most
mysterious, but that's just me.) Hinoki is a new student to Komome High School. She is 17, just like Keita. Keita and she
were childhood friends, but Hinoki's family moved away when she was only 5. Her parents and brother, Mario, were missing after
an expedition into a cave in India. Asami took Hinoki in and giving her the position of pilot of KakuseiJin #1 as "Head Driver
05". She is also a Dual Kind.
