Background


Very little is known about his childhood and Bansai’s past as his heritage is still shrouded in mystery. Bansai is an experienced ninja monk who served as the Head Monk of the Fire Temple in the Land of Fire. Despite the fact that not much is known about him, he is feared throughout the world and possesses incredible strength. The only available statement about his background is that at some point he became a ninja monk and later retired.


Bansai had a limited appearance in the series. He had been absent from the temple for some time prior to the attack on the Fire Temple. Bansai had come back after hearing about the incident when Asuma Sarutobi and his squad visited the temple to obtain information regarding the Akatsuki attack. Bansai requested that prayer be offered for Asuma Sarutobi and his team as they were about to depart and wished them good fortune in their endeavors.


After this incident, Bansai has not appeared since. Due to lack of appearance, whether he is dead or alive is not confirmed. As of now, Bansai is presumed to be alive and well until any information comes to light suggesting otherwise.


Bansai’s Personality

Due to his lack of appearance in the series and any related information, almost nothing is known about Bansai’s personality. From his status, it can be deduced that Bansai is a responsible and reliable individual as he is a ninja monk who has served as the Head Monk of the Fire Temple, which comes with its fair share of responsibilities. The fact that Bansai prayed for Asuma Sarutobi before entering battle also gave the impression that he is a person who genuinely cares about his comrades.


Appearance


Bansai is an elder ninja monk. He is a tall, bald individual with a distinctive long light gray beard. He dresses in the typical attire of a monk of the Fire Temple. He wore white garb underneath an item of dark blue-grayish clothing. He appeared to be barefoot which is standard for a monk.


Abilities


Although Bansai is a ninja monk, close to no information is available about the skills and abilities he possessed. As he had limited appearances in the series, he is never seen performing any of his techniques or abilities. Despite this, it is said that he was in a league of his own with exceptional skills in his prime.


Based on his role in the series, it can be deduced that he possesses a sharp intellect. He served as the Head Monk of the Fire Temple which is a reputed position. Becoming a Head Monk requires skills and formidable abilities which no ordinary person can hope to achieve.
