This shinobi was a missing-nin from an unknown village and a member of Akatsuki, who was partnered with Kakuzu.


Sometime after defecting from an unknown village, he joined the criminal organisation Akatsuki, becoming Kakuzu's fourth partner. In the anime, during a battle with several shinobi, he was eliminated by Kakuzu, who later, upon being chastised by his teammates, claimed he was too slow and should have simply dodged his attack.[1] Kakuzu later took his heart.[2]


In the anime, he was depicted as a tall man, even taller than Kakuzu himself, with short brown hair and a moustache, wearing a standard Akatsuki cloak. He had a broad nose, slightly wrinkled face and small black eyes.

Although most of his abilities remain unknown, the fact that he was accepted into the Akatsuki proves that he was a powerful shinobi. He was also strong enough to have Kakuzu consider his heart worthy enough to take. In the anime, he was shown using a sword in battle, implying he has some skills in kenjutsu.


  • In the anime, as Kakuzu was in possession of a heart that had a fire affinity before his death, he either had a lightning, water or wind affinity.
