Hiiro does not look very strong. He has black hair, dark pupils, and is around 1.8m tall, but not really muscular. Apparently, his only charming point is his glasses. He wears a distinguishing red robe, coupled with his unique personality, allows many others in the series to instantly identify him.
When Hiiro visited the Gabranth Continent, he created a disguise using his Word Magic. His Gabranth Disguise was created based on Muir's race. His ears are sprung up on his head and they’re quite soft to the touch. But the ears weren’t the only thing that changed. Hiiro’s hair is a silver color. He also has a tail, a body that feels oddly light, and his canines have gotten strangely strong.
Similarly, when he visited the Evila Continent, he also used a disguise. His Evila Disguise is that of an imp. His ears are pointed and a small horn grows from his forehead.
His undeniably pale skin also changes, growing even paler as it began to appear discolored. Furthermore, his hair is a thin shade of purple.
Hiiro is an arrogant man who follows his own path wherever he goes. He is extremely self-centered and only does something if it is useful or interesting to him or is given sufficient compensation for it.
He can be very observant as he saw through the Humas' kingdoms deceit and insanity about their current situation and has no desire to partake in their selfish war. This is also in part due to his cautious personality.
As Hiiro discovers his own power, Word Magic; he takes it upon himself to control and master his own power to avoid dying from rebound of his own.
He is also very thickheaded and dense as he fails to notice the other female characters falling in love with him.
Despite the above, he is a good guy at heart. While he won't do something unless he gets something out of it, in some cases he will do something just at the offer of being repaid without them telling him what it would be. He also has a soft spot for animals, especially dogs.
Aside from books, Hiiro also really likes delicious food. He will often accept a meal as payment for his assistance.

Hiiro's parents died in an accident when he was still young. Afterwards, he was handed over to an orphanage and was brought up there. He made some friends there, but more than that, he loved books, so he read nothing but books all day. The books were more of a friend to him than humans.

He was sent to school, however did not pay attention in classes, either skipping or reading books. Despite this, he manages to score full marks on his tests, to the dismay of Chika.

Rudolph explains that they were summoned there as heroes to battle the Evila who were planning to destroy the Humas. Noticing that there were 5 people there instead of the expected 4, he asks them to check their Status. All of them are surprised when a screen pops up in front of them with their abilities.
Rudolph asks them to check their titles for the title Hero. To their delight it does say so and they again become excited. However, Hiiro does not have it and instead has the title Innocent Bystander. Everyone present are shocked. As the conversation turns to their families back home, Rudolph explains that everything will work out, satisfying the 4. However, Hiiro is not convinced and believes him to be lying.
