Kazuma was a rebellious Shinobi against Konohagakure and the Hokage system as he was against their methods. He was someone who wanted to gain the power to fight other villages. Kazuma used to be a member of the Twelve Guardian Ninja. He and the other five members gradually came to a new understanding of the safety and stability of the Land of Fire.
However, Kazuma's group made the decision to destroy the ninja village because they believed it was ineffective to use Konohagakure's more passive means of national defense. They did this in order to unify their nation under a single king and give the Fire Daimyo full control of the state's military capabilities. Their new aspirations for the Land of Fire include exploiting this newly discovered "unity" to invade neighboring nations and rebrand them under their national flag.
Kazuma tried to assassinate the ruler when it became evident that the Fire Daimyo would not support this scheme, but Asuma Sarutobi prevented him. The last surviving Twelve Guardian Ninjas were Kazuma, Asuma, and Chiriku after a protracted battle. Then, in their final confrontation, Kazuma was ultimately defeated by Asuma. The only person who was aware of this was Chiriku, who also kept it a secret.
According to Asuma and Chiriku, Kazuma had lived despite their seeming win. Even if all of his companions were now dead, his objectives remained the same. He trained for several years after that and devised a fresh strategy to reach his objective. Later on, he changed his name to "Furido" and convinced Fuen, Fuka, and Fudo to follow him.
Kazuma found that the Nine-Tails' chakra had escaped during Kurama's assault on Konoha because it was so strong. Kazuma profited from this and gathered the extra chakra. He then gave Sora this chakra and cells from the Nine-Tails, and as insurance for the future, he used several seals to keep it largely inside his son.
After Team Yamato had been lured there by the stolen bodies of Kitane, Tu, Seito, and Nauma, Furido came across them in the fields close to the Fire Temple. He reconnected with Sora there for the first time in a long time. It was obvious that Furido was more curious about Sora's use of his abilities than his personal development.
Furido persisted in making fun of Sora during their battle to get him to reveal more of his true strength. Eventually, Furido used the Five Elements Unseal on Sora, which increased the frequency of the demonic arm that belonged to his son.
He later confessed to Sora that Asuma had "killed" his father as part of his scheme to entice Sora to join him just before the attack on Konoha. Initially, he had persuaded Sora to join him in his schemes to eliminate Konoha's "king." Still, after learning that Furido also meant to eliminate the entire village and all of its residents, Sora decided to assist in foiling his plans.
When his first attempt to take down Konoha by performing Limelight with four revived Ninja Guardian members failed, he turned to unleash the full force of Sora's demonic chakra. He did this despite the fact that he knew that Sora's body would not be able to bear it and that it would eventually destroy everything all around him.
When Asuma and Team Yamato got up to Furido after all of Furido's companions had died, Asuma revealed who Furido actually was. At that point, Kazuma acknowledged that Sora's demonic abilities were a result of him. Asuma pursued Kazuma into the woods while Naruto sought to deal with Sora. At that point, Asuma reprimanded Kazuma for using Sora as a tool and a weapon. Finally, Kazuma was captured.
Asuma made one final attempt to convince Kazuma that his objectives were pointless because they were both protecting the wrong ruler. Refusing to accept that, Kazuma managed to escape and take out Asuma, but his former buddy killed him.
He expressed his concern for the future of the nation as he collapsed and felt his demise approaching. Kazuma laughed at Asuma's remark that it would continue to exist as it always had before passing away.
Kazuma used to be an honorable Twelve Guard squad member who was loyal and faithful to his country. He was also one of the people who took great pride in his looks and abilities. He soon accepted a radical new ideology, however, as a result of his growing concern for the continued safety and prosperity of the Land of Fire.
He was convinced that the current state of the world was unstable and that the only way to safeguard his nation was by branding the rest of the world with the flag of the Land of Fire. Additionally, he believed Konohagakure was inadequate to defend the nation and wanted to abolish it so that one leader could once again have complete control over it.
Ultimately, he became a vicious and evil individual who would do everything to "unite" the Land of Fire. In addition, Kazuma appeared to be a traitor since after the Fire Daimyo rejected his intentions, he decided to kill the man he had sworn to defend. He abandoned his former nature and became openly repulsed by those values to pursue his selfless new purpose.
As Furido, he gave off the impression of being carefree and silly, frequently poking fun at the conflict. As evidenced by his exploitation of his son, he has since renounced all moral and emotional obligations to achieve his ambitions, regardless of who must be sacrificed. He lies to Sora that he knows his Father so that sora would join his team.
When Sora was loyal to his country, he used to have neck-length hair and he wore a red Band on his forehead. Kazuma was a tall Man with a good-fit body and Tanned skin color. He used to wear dark color clothes, and his hair was dark brown.
After 12 years later, he became old and had long white hair. Kazuma was dressed as Furido and wore a purple outfit like a Mandarin gown with a yellow, blue, and grey interior and straw shoes. Asuma hardly recognized Kazuma after a long layoff from his former ally because of how he aged but when Asuma saw the scar on his face, he reliazed that it was Kazuma.
Kazuma was one of the country's most skilled shinobi and hardworking as he easily took down the puter defense Shinobi of Konoha. Kazuma’s Ninjutsu was one of his stronger points, as he could easily sneak through any protective or detecting barrier without being tracked because of his great knowledge of Kinjutsu.
Kazuma could also bring the dead back to life utilizing at least two separate techniques by fusing his kinjutsu with Earth Release. He showed outstanding skill and knowledge of sealing methods. In addition to successfully capturing and containing Kurama's extra chakra for five years, he also managed to successfully infuse it into Sora, where he could comfortably maintain control of it until it was released.
He needed a huge area of soil for the initial edition so he could continuously call forth people as zombies. In the second form, a person would be perfectly revived and able to employ all of their abilities from when they were alive.
Kazuma was skilled with a three-bladed hand claw at close range. Even without his weapons, he was more than capable of outpacing and overpowering Sora. He did so by appearing next to his son in the middle of a speech without the younger shinobi seeing his approach and striking Sora with a punch powerful enough to knock him out.
Even Asuma was on the back foot when he was fighting one on one against Kazuma’s Taijutsu and Bukijutsu as it was one of the most powerful that Asuma had ever encountered. He can easily withstand Sora's demonic wind assaults when he summons a powerful twister with his monk staff. He could also meld into and inside a woodland setting using Earth Release.
Kazuma can use different elements as for example, the Fire Temple's medical staff examined Sora after his demon chakra sent him on a rampage that nearly destroyed the temple. However, they couldn’t detect any signs of what might have set him off. This is because Sora's sealing technique was so powerful.
