Hanji is a middle-aged man with tanned skin and a scar over his left eye. He has lavender-colored hair and is mostly bold at the top apart from a orange flame-like mohawk. At Udon, he wears the standard prisoner outfit.
In the anime, he wears a red kimono after discarding the prison uniform.
Hanji believes that there is no freedom in Wano Country and is willing to obey the Beasts Pirates rather than rebel. He does not want to be given "unnecessary" hope and cries tears of anguish while restraining Luffy. In the anime, he also showed himself to be a rather restless person, which forced Hyogoro to calm him down.

When Monkey D. Luffy started a rebellion in the prison, Hanji and other prisoners obeyed Babanuki's order to restrain him. Hanji broke into tears while reprimanding Luffy for dragging the prisoners into his rampage. After Luffy intentionally infected himself with the Mummy virus, Hanji listened as Luffy promised to liberate Wano Country from Kaidou's oppression.
