Hidetomo is a bespectacled man of average height with medium length, light-colored hair which is largely combed back, except for a few strands which frame either side his face. He wears the standard Shinigami shihakushō, three earrings hanging from each of his ears, and bands encircling his wrists.
The Thousand-Year Blood War arc
When Ryūnosuke Yuki asks Shino why the Shinigami and Quincy have to fight, Hidetomo, pardoning them for their tardiness, explains how Shinigami were once called "balancers" because of their job of balancing the souls between the Human World and Soul Society. He reveals to them the Quincy threaten this balance because they kill Hollows, eradicating their souls in the process, which causes the number of Souls in the Human World to overwhelm those of Soul Society. Hidetomo explains several attempts were made to reason with the Quincy, until 200 years ago, when it was decided they would be exterminated. When Ryūnosuke asks if the Shinigami were fighting for a just cause, Hidetomo states since this is war, both sides were fighting for a just cause.
Later, Hidetomo, Ryūnosuke, Shino, and some other Shinigami patrol near the Shakonmaku. Hidetomo tells Ryūnosuke to be not so tense, for the Vandenreich will need to attack a gate, which they did last time, to invade the Seireitei, and they will get warned if such an invasion would take place. Appearing in the sky above them, Yhwach sarcastically states his statement "makes sense". As Hidetomo tells the other Shinigami to calm down, for he still is outside the Shakonmaku, Ryūnosuke tells Hidetomo he is not. As a shocked Hidetomo looks on, large beams erupt behind him.
When another Shinigami, standing next to Hidetomo, thinks the beams are pillars of light, Hidetomo, disagreeing, notes they are pillars of blue fire. When he and the other members of his division are confronted by Haschwalth, Hidetomo, saying he will not let the Quincy go any further, unsheathes his Zanpakutō, but is told by Haschwalth he is afraid. Screaming, Hidetomo, attempting to fight back, is struck down before he can do so.
