Very little is known about his childhood and past other than the fact that Iyashi is a medical ninja of Konoha, a member of the Konoha’s Medical Corps.
Iyashi first appeared in the Chunin Exams Arc. In the arc, after Sasuke Uchiha’s match against Yoroi Akadō in the preliminary round of the Chunin Exams, Iyashi approached an exhausted Sasuke to take him and treat his injuries. However, Kakashi Hatake intervened and volunteered to deal with Sasuke’s injuries himself.
Later, Iyashi reappeared in the Mizuki Tracking Mission Arc. In this arc (anime only), Iyashi, along with other members of the Medical Corps consisting of Mitate, Mogusa, Kusushi, and some other Konoha medical ninjas, were dispatched from the Konoha Hospital to aid Konoha shinobi in their battle with Mizuki. When they arrived at the scene, he discovered that Kurenai Yuhi, Asuma Sarutobi, and some other Konoha ninjas were badly injured in their battle against Mizuki. After evaluating the situation, the Medical Corps gave the injured some first aid and then relocated them to the Konoha Hospital for treatment.
These are the only incidents where Iyashi made an appearance and he hasn’t reappeared since. Due to the lack of information, it is hard to determine whether Iyashi is still alive or not. For the time being, Iyashi is believed to be alive and well until any additional information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Almost nothing is known about Iyashi's personality or true nature due to his limited appearance in the series and any relevant information. However, based on his limited role it can be said that Iyashi is dedicated to his work as a medical ninja.
Iyashi is a young man with brown skin, black eyes, and thin eyebrows. He wears the standard outfit of Konoha’s hospital medical ninja, consisting of a white full-sleeve, high-collared jacket, and matching pants. Additionally, he wears a white, matching hat covering his head and gear to cover his ears, only leaving his face visible. Additionally, his uniform also has the Medical Corps’ insignia on the left side of his chest.
Although Iyashi is a medical ninja, one of Konoha’s finest, the true extent of his abilities is still unknown. However, based on his status, it can be deduced that as a medical ninja, Iyashi possesses an intellect, combined with excellent chakra control, and is well-versed in medical ninjutsu and medical procedures. In the anime, Iyashi showcased his skills in using the Mystical Palm Technique.
Apart from the Naruto manga and anime, Iyashi is also part of Naruto’s gaming franchise. He made his debut in the gaming category with the release of Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Online.
