Since the character was designed to be a "personification" of the slur, she is portrayed as a young woman with long black hair and pale skin, often wearing a kimono and demon horns, whilst holding various motifs unique to Japanese culture, such as a naginata and a hannya mask.

In 2010, users from the Breaking News board on 2channel created Hinomoto
as an anthropomorphism of the commonly used Chinese ethnic slur used against Japanese, Riben guizi (日本鬼子), literally meaning "Japanese devils". The character was made by the 2channel community in response to the growing anti-Japanese sentiment amongst Chinese netizens online, and has since become an Internet meme within Japanese imageboards and forums. In Japanese, the kun'yomi reading of the kanji which make up the racial slur can be interpreted as a female personal name, and so the character is depicted as a young female wearing a traditional Japanese kimono, along with devil horns and a katana.
In Japanese, the slur 日本鬼子 is generally read as "rīben guizu" (リーベングイズ), a direct transliteration of the Mandarin "rìběn guǐzi". However, the characters can be alternately read using kun'yomi and nanori readings as "Hinomoto
", which in Japanese resembles a female name. Within the Kun'yomi reading, the character's "surname" "Hi no moto" can have the literal meaning "origin of the sun", whilst Japanese given names ending in 子 ("-ko") are considered feminine, and are generally used as girls' names (for example, 山田花子 "Yamada Hanako" is a placeholder female name).
The title Onikosi is a shortened form of

There are three ruling houses that produce candidates for the Onikosi: the Iloti, the Isiki, and the Ikin. The three houses rotate to allow each a chance to produce an Onikosi. The head of the family presents candidates to ten Kingmakers: the Ekerin, the Bada of Osi, the Balogun of Osi, the Olori of Iwaiye, the Akeja Oniyanru of Osi, the Odogun, the Olori of Osi, the Seriki of Osi, the Asalu, and the Odofin of Osugbo Itoki.
O'Brien discovers that the blast in the chamber had released a mysterious radiation that affects both her and
. Immediately after the explosion, her eyes turn orange—the same color as Tiberius's. The next night, she needs almost no sleep to feel refreshed. The next day she finds that her sneakers no longer fit her feet: "I was growing faster than a teenager!" She performs better and better at physical tasks, lifting tons of free weights and at one point making a 60-mile run in 30 minutes without much effort. She frets a little about the ongoing growth spurts (wasting plenty of money on clothes that become too small in 24 hours), but finally settles in at seven feet tall and 250 pounds.
However, by the end of the 1930s the spread of synthetic indigo and caustic soda and an influx of new less skilled entrants caused quality problems and a still-present collapse in demand. Though the more complex and beautiful starch resist designs continued to be produced until the early 1970s, and despite a revival prompted largely by the interest of US Peace Corps workers in the 1960s, never regained their earlier popularity. In the present day, simplified stenciled designs and some better quality
and alabere designs are still produced, but local taste favours "kampala" (multi-coloured wax resist cloth, sometimes also known as adire by a few people). However, there has been a recent revival of the Adire art by Nigerian designers such as Maki-Oh and Doru Olowo. Political figures and celebrities such as Michelle Obama and Lupita Nyong'o have worn adire-inspired clothes recently.
