Heiji (ヘイジ)Heiji (ヘイジ, Heiji), also known as Heiji of the Rain Shelter (雨宿りのヘイジ, Amayadori no Heiji), was a shinobi from Amegakure as well as the right-hand man of Kandachi.
Heiji was a subordinate in Hanzō's regime and the right hand of Kandachi who was the right hand of Hanzō. At some point he was killed within the walls of Amegakure. Some time later, he was accidentally reincarnated by Kabuto Yakushi who was looking for Hanzō instead.
During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kabuto deployed Heiji, who he saw as one of his weaker assets, in an attempt to unseal his other, stronger pawns. During a scuffle between Kabuto's weaker pawns and the Allied Shinobi Forces, Heiji created a smokescreen diversion so some of the reincarnated shinobi could escape. Afterwards, he was cornered by the Fourth Division and sealed. Later, when the Impure World Reincarnation Technique was canceled, his soul was returned to the afterlife.
