Team Info

Kara (, カラ, Viz: The Husk, Literally meaning: "Shell" or "Husk") is an organisation whose motive-of-operation is mostly unknown. Their history is also currently unknown, but they appear to be gathering intel on various juinjutsu, including those borne by Boruto Uzumaki and Kawaki, with the latter seemingly being very important to their schemes, labeling him 'the vessel' and going great lengths to retrieve him.

The group is made up of "Inners" (内陣, インナー, Innā) and "Outers" (外陣, アウトー, Autō), with each of the Inners being in charge of a particular region. Each Inner appears to bear a facial tattoo of a Roman numeral and wears a black hooded cloak with red lining, fastened at the right shoulder with a silver pin. Outers appear to act as sleeper agents, showing no obvious signs of their affiliation with the organisation.

The organisation has accumulated a great deal of wealth, makes use of Scientific Ninja Tools, and communicates over long range via genjutsu.
