The details of Kasuga's past are rather mysterious and very little is known about his upbringing or his skills. In the anime, he only made a few brief appearances. However, it is stated that he is a skilled chunin of Konoha.
In the Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Arc of the Naruto Shippuden anime, episode 365, Kasuga made his first appearance. In the arc, Kasuga collaborated with other Nara clan members to manipulate the Ten-Tailed Beast's shadow in order to help Shikamaru Nara restrain it. This provided the Allied Shinobi Forces with a much-needed opening to launch a counterattack on the beast.
Kasuga has not appeared since this incident; thus, his absence makes it impossible to say whether he is dead or alive. He is currently assumed to be alive and well unless any information comes to light indicating otherwise.
Kasuga had a limited appearance in the series and had a limited role in the plot of the series. Due to his sparse appearance, Kasuga never had the opportunity to showcase his individuality in the series.
Kasuga has dark eyes and spiky black hair that he wears in a messy ponytail with three bangs framing his face. He is dressed in the typical Konoha shinobi clothing, including a flak jacket (signifying his jonin status), black underclothes, a head protector, and conventional shinobi sandals.
Details concerning Kasuga's abilities are still unknown because of his sparse appearance in the series. Kasuga, however, is a skilled shinobi of the Konoha and the Nara clan. He is skilled in the shadow manipulation jutsu used by the Nara clan and possesses Yin Release.
With this talent, he was able to collaborate with other Nara clan members to use his shadow imitation jutsu to restrain the Ten-Tailed Beast.
