Life of Kawaki


Kawaki is the biological son of Kokatsu. Kokatsu is a former shinobi who apparently made considerable contributions in the Fourth Great Ninja War. It is believed that he used to be a kind man but turned bitter after facing the horrors of the war. He started taking solace in alcohol and abused Kawaki on a daily basis.



One day when Kawaki mistakenly broke Kokatsu’s bottle full of alcohol, Kokatsu locked him up. At this moment, Jigen came to his house and offered to buy Kawaki from Kokatsu. Without a second thought, he sold his son to Jigen.



From this point onward, Kawaki started living with Jigen. Jigen was collecting children from different places hoping to find someone who was compatible with the Karma Seal and capable of becoming the vessel of Isshiki Otsutsuki. As it turns out, Kawaki was compatible and inherited the Karma Seal.



Jigen started training Kawaki under his care and referred to himself as his father. The methods he used to train Kawaki were cruel and inhumane. He was training Kawaki to adopt the Karma Seal which would enhance his abilities. Jigen stated that the only value Kawaki held was as the vessel of Isshiki Otsutsuki and that he would strike Kawaki if he disagreed with his insight. Although Jigen had promised him a happy life when he bought him from his biological father, Kawaki later describes his life with Kara as a living hell.



After he was brought to the Hidden Leaf Village, Naruto took responsibility for Kawaki and started taking care of him. Naruto invited him into his family and treated him as his own son. As Kawaki had never experienced such kindness, he was skeptical at first. As he spent time with the Uzumaki Family, he started to feel at home and accepted them as his family.



Kawaki looks up to Naruto and adores him. In Kawaki’s eyes, Naruto is the father he never had. He is willing to go to any extent and even sacrifice himself if it means he could protect Naruto and his family. When Naruto was sealed by Jigen, Kawaki volunteered to bring Naruto back. In their final battle against Isshiki Otsutsuki, Isshiki threatened to kill Naruto if Kawaki did not reveal himself. Even after Naruto’s warnings, Kawaki revealed his location and faced Isshiki in order to save Naruto from certain death.


What are the abilities, Chakra, and Physical Prowess of Kawaki?


Kawaki is a formidable fighter. He was raised under Kara’s care and Jigen taught him many combat skills including the use of weapons. He was capable of destroying robotic puppets without any noticeable difficulty and even defeated Garou, an inner member of Kara with very low difficulty. Although he is not a shinobi, it is believed that he will be in a league of his own if he masters Ninjutsu and other shinobi tactics.


What are Kawaki’s Special Abilities?


Kawaki wields the Karma Seal of Isshiki Otsustuki. Karma Seal is compressed data that spreads into the wielder’s body, turning it into an Otsutsuki, which can be used as a vessel for the resurrection of the Karma owner, which in Kawaki’s case was Isshiki.



After Kawaki regains his Karma, he is privy to the strength and abilities of Isshiki. He can absorb ninjutsu and can use Space-Time Ninjutsu when in sync with Boruto’s Karma Seal. It is believed that he will be able to use Space-Time Ninjutsu when he masters his Karma later in the series.


In the manga, Kawaki is further ahead in his transformation process into an Otsustuki and has acquired Isshiki’sDojutsu and its unique abilities. He can use Sukunahikona to shrink himself and other non-living objects at will and can store objects in a pocket dimension with his Daikokuten.



Kawaki’s body has received Shinobi-Ware enhancements from Amado. It is a microscopic technology implanted in Kawaki’s body at a cellular level, making him a living Scientific Ninja Tool. Kawaki possesses superhuman capabilities and is able to alter the shape and size of his arm as he pleases.



In his time with the Uzumaki family, Naruto started training Kawaki in the shinobi arts and taught him Ninjutsu. In a short period, Kawaki was able to learn Fire Style and ShadowClone Jutsu.
