Akita Inuzuka (犬塚アキタ, Inuzuka Akita) is a member of Konohagakure's Inuzuka clan and a lead scientist for the Scientific Ninja Weapons Team.

Background

Akita was originally a field ninja with Chamaru as her partner/pet. She is also an old acquaintance of the Seventh Hokage's family. During a mission, Chamaru lost its right hind leg. While Akita was happy to know her companion was still alive and relatively well, she knew that Chamaru was sad his condition. However, when Katasuke Tōno learned of Chamaru's condition, he got in contact with Akita and made a prosthetic limb for the ninken. So grateful and amazed at his work, she decided to become his assistant.

Personality

Akita is a passionate woman to anything close to her. While originally a field ninja, her greatest concern more than completing the mission was the wellbeing of her dog Chamaru. Once joining Katasuke Tōno, her eccentric nature showed equal passion for her work in developing new technologies.

Appearance

Akita is a young woman of average height and slender built with long dark-colored hair and eyes framed by glasses. She wears a black dress with a white lab coat over it and a choker around her neck. Her canine teeth appear to be elongated and she wears fang-shaped earrings.

Abilities

As an Inuzuka, Akita has a keen sense of smell, being able to identify the arrival of Team Konohamaru through scent alone. As a lead scientist, she is proven to be very intelligent, having made great insights to the development of new technology. She is also well-versed in her clan's techniques, being able to use Fang Passing Fang, Fang Roar (牙咆哮, Gahōkō) and Fang Passing Whirlwind (牙通旋風, Gatsūsenpū).[1]

New Era

Ao Arc

When Katasuke and Team Konohamaru arrive at the Advanced Technology Research Institute, Akita enthusiastically greeted Katasuke before having a brief conversation with him about the new prosthetics and the progress of their experiment. She would later guide Boruto, Sarada and Mitsuki through demonstrations of some of the advanced shinobi tools that they were developing and would later explain how Katasuke had inspired her to become a scientist after improving her ninken Chamaru’s quality of life with a prosthetic limb.
