Hanzaki (ハンザキ, Hanzaki) is the leader of the Fūma clan.
He was the one of the members who was not seduced by Orochimaru's power.
As leader of his clan, Hanzaki participated in and led most of the clan's activities, including robbing of random people, in these instances he prove to be willing to kill and steal in order to survive. He did however show some respect for fellow shinobi, offering to let Jiraiya live in exchange for his money. This respect however turned to instant fear when he found out who it was he was dealing with. Hanzaki also harbours great resentment towards Orochimaru for seducing so many of his clansmen.
Hanzaki is a strong melee-based shinobi who fights with a zanbatō. He has showed to be rather resilient, being able to stand up immediately after having taken a direct Rasengan and subsequently being slammed through a wall.
Part I Edit
Land of Rice Fields Arc Edit
He first encounters Jiraiya alongside unnamed members of the Fūma clan when a female member lured him to them. Jiraiya managed to defeat him and gain information from them. After the incident in Orochimaru's lair, Sasame and Kotohime were placed under his care by Jiraiya.
- Curiously, Hanzaki doesn't show knowledge of any technique, and his clansmen are all armed with bows.
