He was a shinobi from Sunagakure. He was also the son of Chiyo and the father of Sasori.


Sasori's Parents Depart

Sasori's parents bid farewell to their son before heading out.

He and his wife were killed by Sakumo Hatake during a war,[1] leaving Sasori in the care of his grandmother Chiyo for much of his childhood. After learning the art of puppetry, Sasori created puppets with their likeness, in the hopes that doing so would help him feel loved. Because they were still only puppets, this failed, and Sasori lost interest in the two and left them behind when he defected from Sunagakure.


Sasori's father had very shaggy red hair, purple eyes, and wore a long, loose fitting outfit with a poncho like top; common pieces of clothes amongst the Sunagakure villagers. As a shinobi, he wore the standard uniform of a Suna-nin, complete with a flak jacket, a forehead protector, and a white ghutrah.


With his departure, the puppets came into the possession of Chiyo, who once used them against Sasori, and ultimately to their current wielder Kankurō.
