Jigen (ジゲン, Jigen) is the leader of Kara.


During Kawaki's childhood, Jigen bought the boy from his father with a large sum of money. Following taking custody of him, Jigen introduced himself as Kawaki's new father, while telling him he could make himself at ease now.


Jigen appears to be formal and courteous, addressing the fellow members of his organisation politely before beginning their meeting. He also seems to command respect within the group. He is very composed and systematic in his approach to matters at hand. Even when dealing with setbacks, he appears unceasingly detached, convinced that all will fall into place as he designed it.


Jigen has dark long hair tied in a ponyhawk style, a broad nose and large black pupils. He bears a diamond-shaped marking resembling Kāma on his chin and piercings. Below his left eye, he has a Roman numeral "Ⅳ" tattooed. He wears a black hooded cloak, along with light-coloured capri pants and sandals.


Little is known on Jigen's capabilities, but according to Kawaki, Jigen's power is comparable to that of Naruto Uzumaki's, who is reputed as the strongest ninja in history. Jigen apparently excels in genjutsu, as he was able to use it as a means to communicate with many over a large distance at once. Jigen is also apparently capable of manifesting items as he sees fit, as he was able to produce intact copies of destroyed objects and chemical reactions, such as a table, food and drink, and even lit candles.
