Ao fought in the battlegrounds ever since he was a young boy. During the Third Shinobi World War, he defeated a Hyuga clan member and took one of their Byakugan, which he embedded into his right eye socket.

In Boruto series he is in the midst of healing from major injuries he sustained throughout the Great Ninja War. Boruto first meets up with Ao on a train, and we saw that Ao now is in Katasuke’s care.
But after Ao apparently threatened him, Its hard to trust him particularly when he was shown to be an envoy of Kara.

After Boruto, Mitsuki, Sarada, and Katasuke found Konohamaru and his companion in a cave Ao arrived in front of them and pointed a machine gun at them, asking to know what they have uncovered about the black box that was in the fallen airship.


Konohamaru refused to relay any information about his current mission, Ao instead resides to his assassination and threatens to silence Konohamaru forever completely.

As a master of Kirigakure’s hunter-nin, Ao was an extremely capable tracker and has the vast knowledge of the human body. Ao had rather remarkable speed and reaction, able to take and throw the kama back at the attacker, who had just moved to strike him from the behind, all in quick succession.
