Former Leader’s Background


Years ago, she encountered Jiraiya, who had come to her village to do “research” for his next novel. She pursued him when he escaped and challenged him to a duel for his hand in marriage. As the match extended on into the next day, Jiraiya requested that it be postponed because neither of the group was making any progress against the order, to which the village leader reluctantly agreed.



Jiraiya pledged that if the two never met again, their disciples would seek each other out and battle. This vow was given to Shizuka, her student, and Jiraiya’s last student, Naruto Uzumaki.


Former Leader’s Personality


She was a motivated and somewhat confrontational young woman who tracked Jiraiya over a long distance in order to fight him. While she was constrained by her village’s traditions, she was also a loving and sympathetic person who could comprehend Jiraiya’s love for Tsunade.


She also demonstrated diplomatic skills when she accepted that her and Jiraiya’s combat had been postponed and would possibly be taken up by their respective students if they were unable. She had become rather compassionate and sympathetic in her old age, imparting words of wisdom to her student about her love life and supporting her when Sagiri was killed.


Former Leader’s Appearance



She has green eyes and chin-length brown hair that covered her ears and framed her face. She used to be a reasonably tall woman. She was dressed in a crimson pink form-fitting garment with an orange sash and only one long sleeve on her left side. Her hair had turned grey with age, and she wore a yellow, loose-fitting kimono.


Former Leader’s Abilities


Little is known about her skills, although she was definitely a great combatant in her youth, as evidenced by her ability to fight Jiraiya in his prime, a match that ended in a stand still. She was able to track Jiraiya pretty far from her village, which the Sannin congratulated her for. She was probably skilled in kenjutsu, as it appeared to be her primary combat method.
