|Appears in||Anime and Manga|
During the Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha, Kurenai's father was seen placing the young shinobi inside a barrier, informing them that they were to stay out of the fight against the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, to which Kurenai voiced her discontentment. He told his daughter that she is a shinobi who may or may not live a long life, and requested of her to live long enough to give him a grandchild whom the Will of Fire could be passed to.
Like his daughter, he had black hair and very distinctive, ringed, red eyes. He also wore the standard Konoha shinobi outfit with what appeared to be slightly longer sleeves than usual, shinobi sandals, his forehead protector which he wore like a bandanna, and a flak jacket. He also carried a sword strapped vertically over his right shoulder and a small cylindrical object strapped to his right lower back.
