Kankurō (カンクロウ, Kankurō) is a supporting character of the series. He is a jonin-level shinobi of Sunagakure, and is the brother of Temari and Gaara. Together, these three are known as The Sand Siblings. Kankuro makes his first appearence in Chapter 7 of the manga, and Episode 20 of the anime.

Appearance

Kankurō wears a black, baggy, full body suit. He also wears a black hood which covers his head completely, and has cat-like ears and a forehead protector on his forehead. Both this and later outfits are derived from traditional bunraku puppeteer costumes; bunraku puppeteers usually wear black outfits and hoods so as not to distract from their puppets.

Personality

One noticible personality trait Kankuro displays is his apparant hatred of children. However, unlike the main series, this is not as clearly defined. It is also shown that he dislikes needless fighting. Kankuro is very loyal to his siblings: Gaara and Temari.

Abilities

Kankurō is a highly talented puppeteer.
