En no Gyōja (役の行者, En no Gyōja) was the former leader of the Tsuchigumo clan and the grandfather of Hotaru.

Background Edit

During the Third Shinobi World War, he made a peace treaty with Hiruzen Sarutobi. He developed a technique capable of destroying an entire village which the Third Hokage proclaims a kinjutsu because of its power. He had two known students in his life, and the first was a man named Hāto who was brilliant and exceptionally skilled in ninjutsu; the second was his granddaughter, Hotaru.

Feeling that it was his fault the clan fell from glory, En no Gyōja became convinced that it was his duty to restore the clan. Before dying, his granddaughter, seeing how much his dream meant to him, begged En no Gyōja to seal the kinjutsu in her so she could continue his dream.

AppearanceEdit

En no Gyōja is an older man who has very long grey hair that forms into a mustache and beard. He also has small black eyes and wears a baggy tannish-coloured robe.

Abilities Edit

Fury unleashed

En no Gyōja using his most devastating technique

While the sheer abilities of En no Gyōja remain unknown, and his advanced age presumably hindered his prowess, En no Gyōja was powerful enough to be his clan's leader, and to create a powerful technique that can destroy an entire village. He was also skilled in fūinjutsu, as he devised a way to seal the clan's kinjutsu in his granddaughter and safely remove it.

Influence Edit

The name of this character comes from the Japanese ascetic and mystic En no Gyōja (役行者), the legendary founder of the Japanese religion Shugendō (修験道; Literally meaning "The Way of Training and Testing"). The real-life En no Gyōja was born in 634 and is venerated as a mountain saint and a bodhisattva. Many supernatural powers are attributed to him.

In the horror novel Ring by Japanese author Kōji Suzuki, a statue of En no Gyōja gives supernatural powers, including precognition, to the mother of antagonist Sadako Yamamura. Sadako herself is born with the same powers, implying that En no Gyōja is her father. The famous horror film Ring is based on this novel.

Trivia Edit

  • Gyōja (行者) means ascetic. En (役) is a surname. When pronounced as eki, it means "war campaign" or "battle"; when pronounced as yaku, it means "service", "role"or "use".
