Konohagakure (the Village Hidden in the Leaves)
Jiro graduated from Konohagakure Ninja Academy with his both younger brothers and then were placed under Kakashi team alongside his younger brothers. Kakashi tested them with his bell test but in the end, they all failed the test and were then sent back to Ninja Academy.
The test was to take the two bells from Kakashi anyhow. Kakashi wanted to test their teamwork and if they would follow the rule and leave their comrades behind or break the rule and have a back to their comrades. In the end, they choose to rule over their comrades and that’s why Kakashi failed them.
Later, Jiro and his brothers met Kakashi again in the village and thanked him for sending them back to the Ninja Academy, because they learned about their weaknesses and team spirit, which made Kakashi happy and surprised.
Jiro is kind and loves his brothers. He used to give orders to his brothers and wanted them to follow them even when they didn’t wish to. After he was sent back to the academy by Kakashi, he understood that he should not give orders and let his brothers follow their own path.
Jiro has brown side spiky hair and wears a black tracksuit with red stripes. He wears a Konoha head protector and shinobi sandals.
Jiro is a genin and must be skilled shinobi but in anime, he never showed his skill, so it is still unknown what his abilities are. He might know all the basic Jutsu, like Shadow clone jutsu, Substitution jutsu, and Shuriken Technique.
