The White Snake Sage (白蛇仙人, Hakuja Sennin) is the leader of the snakes and resides at the Ryūchi Cave.
At some point after he absorbed Orochimaru's remains, Kabuto Yakushi came to it and under its tutelage, the young man learned senjutsu and mastered the snakes' equivalent of Sage Mode.
This snake is extremely large — many times the size of a human with its massive body wrapped in thick coils. Along these coils are circular bands. It wears a hat with two pointed edges and an orb on top and a headdress. It also wears a chain with an orb around its neck, similar to the one worn by the Great Toad Sage. The Sage also smokes, using a long cigarette holder when doing so.
