Hiei is a fire demon who was born in the Floating Kingdom of
Koorime ( ice country of Makai ) where legendary ice ( youkai )
maidens live . As a fire demon, Hiei was bannished
from their land when he was still a young infant because of the
misfortune that he may bring upon to their homeland according to the Koorime
elders. Hina , Hiei's mother, begged the elders to spare
her son's life, but the elders did not listen. Ruri , a friend
of Hina , was ordered to cast the child from a high ground (
literally speaking ) and to let him die in the cursed Makai grounds.
Hiei's small and helpless body was covered in straps with writings
on it to seal his powers. Ruri tucked a gem from Hina's tear
inside the child's straps and whispered to him that he should
survive and become strong, and she will be waiting for his revenge. After
this, she dropped the infant into the dangerous land of Makai.
The elders saw everything including Hina who was suffering in agonizing grief. Ruri's words
was marked on Hiei's mind. Hiei survived the fall and was adopted
by a group of thieves. Hiei kept the gem which reminded him of
Ruri and gave him a reason to go on. It also comforts him when
he's alone. As years went on, Hiei learned to fight and defend
himself from the evil demons that lurk. He was fond of hearing
cries for help from his opponents. He also became a hired assassin at
that time. The thieves who raised him couldn't take his attitude
anymore and cast him from their group. He wandered in Makai all
alone and killed whoever gets in his way. Unfortunately, as he
was fighting with a demon, he lost his gem. It fell from a cliff
and it was washed away by a river found beneath . It was impossible for him to find the gem. At this point, he now has
two things to find; the gem and the Koorime.

He then realized that he needed a third eye to find them, and
so he went to Sigure. Hiei requested Sigure to implant the Jagan
on him. Sigure warned him that the operation would be dangerous
, but Hiei insisted. As the operation was going on, Hiei cried
in terrible pain. He also exerted some of his youki to somehow
relieve him from the pain. The operation was successful, but
Hiei lost almost all his strength. Because of this, Sigure told
him to stay for another day, so that he could teach him some
swaggerer's techniques. Knowing this, with such little energy
at that time, should protect himself from harm. They also had
a deal that in exchange for the jagan, Hiei would never tell
Yukina that he is her long lost twin brother. Hiei never had
any intention of telling her anyway.

Having the Jagan, it is now possible for him to find the land
that condemned him to death. As he finally reached Koorime, it
turned into a ghostly town since no one wanted to talk to him
and he was feared as a fire demon. As Hiei continued to walk,
he found Ruri. At first she did not notice the fire demon as
Hiei, the forbidden child. Hiei asked her some questions about
a child who was once cast out. Ruri showed him the tomb of Hina
who committed suicide ( forced? ) after her son was cast out.
Ruri also told him that the forbidden child's sister, Yukina, left Koorime to find
her brother; hoping that he's still alive. After telling this,
Hiei left with the thought of his younger sister and it was his
obligation to find her.As Ruri watched him walk away, she realized
that he WAS the child whom she almost killed. She cried and fell
down on her knees for forgiveness. Hiei had no intention of killing
her , and so he walked away and left Koorime.

His search for Yukina made him reach Ningenkai. That was the
place where he met Kurama. Hiei attacked him because he thought
he's an enemy, but he found out that it was just a misunderstanding.
Hiei got wounded from their fight and so Kurama brought him to
his room and treated his wound. After that, they both defeated
the youkai whom Hiei was looking for. Kurama tagged along because
that particular youkai happen to kidnap his friend, Maya. Since their fighting
skills blend well, they became friends.
When Hiei got involved in the rei kai robbery, he met Yusuke
and this is where it all began. When he became a rei kai tantei
, as punishment for his crime, he cooperated in Yusuke's group.
He also managed to find Yukina from the evil claws of Tarukane.
At the time when he saw her face to face, he decided to keep
their blood relationship to himself since Yukina did not know who he
After Sensui's defeat, he received an invitation from Mukuro
which means he has to go back to Makai. Before he left, Yukina
gave him a blue gem and asked him a favor to find a fire
demon who has the same gem and tell him that his sister is waiting
for him. When Hiei saw her face, he found something in his heart
that it was the gem he has been looking for. And after that,
he left for Makai.

Hiei once again saw Sigure ,but at that time he was Mukuro's
right hand. Mukuro ordered them to fight each other, and whoever
wins will be her right hand. Hiei had no interest of becoming
her right hand. He also had no more reason to go on since he
already found what he has been looking for ( the gem , Koorime
, and Yukina ). It would be pretty fair for him if he would die
at this match. Hiei still fought Sigure and ended up unconscious
and almost dead ; his left arm and stomach was sliced up. But
despite all these, he won the match. Before he went unconscious,
Mukuro, who was watching the fight from the start, gave him a white gem but Hiei did not accept it and then
he went unconscious. Mukuro healed him inside a tank and confessed
her feelings for him while he was sleeping.
