Neji Hyūga (日向ネジ, Hyūga Neji) is a Genin from Konohagakure. He is a member of Team Guy, and is a decendant from Clan Hyuga. However, he has only inherited the Sideline trait, so he is unable to unlock the family's true power. Unlike his Cousin, Hinata Hyuga, who is a direct Decendant of the Hyuga clan, Neji is extremely serious and mature for his age, and has great self-control, where Hinata is soft, Shy, and unsure of her Destiny. Before the Chunin Exams, he was cold and somewhat arrogant.
Neji believes that fate is something decided at birth and that no matter what one does, people cannot escape their destiny. Neji often applied this to people he viewed as weaker than himself, such as his cousin, Hinata.
