Very little is known about his childhood and the information regarding Natori’s past, his heritage is still shrouded in mystery. Natori is a skilled Jonin of the Hidden Leaf Village and a member of the Hidden Leaf Aviary unit. He also works closely with the Hidden Leaf CrytanalysisTeam and is responsible for delivering important communications.
Natori had limited appearance in the series. He got a communication from the Hidden Sand Village via Takamaru when he was in the aviary. He immediately sends for a ninja from the cryptology section after realising that the Hidden Sand had sent its fastest messenger bird. He hands the note to Yurika and informs her that something had undoubtedly happened if they had sent Takamaru.
After this incident, Natori has not apperaed since. Due to lack of appearance, whether he is dead or alive is not confirmed. As of now, Natori is presumed to be alive and well until any information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Due to lack of appearance in the series and related information, almost nothing is known about Natori’s personality. From his status, it can be deduced that Natori is a quite responsible shinobi as he has to handle important and time-sensitive communications. He also appeared to be sharp as he quickly realized that something wrong must have happened just by looking at the messenger bird sent by the Hidden Sand Village.
Natori dressed in the rather typical attire of a Hidden Leaf Jonin. The lines around his eyes that are turned up at the ends are Natori's most distinguishing characteristic. With the exception of the flak jacket, he wears his forehead protector like a bandanna and the typical Konoha shinobi uniform. He has short brown hair. Additionally, he frequently wraps his left arm in a tight bandage so that birds can perch there without harming his arm.
Although Natori is a jonin, close to no information is available about the skills and abilities he possessed. As he had limited appearance on the series, he is never seen performing any of his techniques or abilities. Despite this, it is said that he is in a league of his own in the entirety of the Aviary unit when it comes to speed and accuracy.
Based on his role in the series, it can be deduced that he possesses sharp intellect. The messenger bird dispatched by the Hidden Sand Village caught his attention, and he appeared to be intelligent enough to immediately deduce that something was obviously wrong based on the kind of messenger bird the Hidden Sand Village used to communicate.
