A is the son of the Third Raikage. At some point in the past, a group of children were gathered in
order to determine who would be A's tag-
partner in keeping with a long-standing
Kumogakure tradition of the Raikage having a
tag-team partner. Only one of the children were
able to successfully match A's power and use the Double Lariat on a training dummy. As a result the child was given the name " B", and A stated that they would be brothers from that day on. [2] He and B would eventually be teamed together
on a mission with Killer B's cousin, the jinchūriki of the Eight-Tails. While on the mission, he told A
that Killer B would need something to fill the void
that would be created if he was chosen as the
beast's next jinchūriki. Some time later B's cousin lost control of the
beast and it went on a rampage. A was made
part of a special team tasked with subduing the rampaging Eight-Tails. When the beast impaled Motoi's father with its horn, A cut it off. After B became the beast's jinchūriki, A, remembering what B's cousin had said to him, tries his best to
fill that apparent void. During the Third Shinobi World War , A would clash with Minato Namikaze for the first time. Before Minato retreated he recognised Killer B as
the jinchūriki of the Eight-Tails and told A that next they met it would be to put the title of
"Kage" on the line and also offered A the advice
of making sure his brother knew who he was
before becoming neither human nor jinchūriki. They would clash many more times after that. A
was once even told by Jiraiya that he believed Minato was the "Child of Prophecy". [3] When A succeeded his father in the title of Raikage, he
forbade Killer B from fully transforming into the

He is a tall dark-skinned man with a large
muscular build, with his white hair (blond in the
anime) combed back , a small moustache and
beard. He has pointed canines and his top lip also
has a darker hue than the bottom one and he has
a mole over his right eyebrow; traits he inherited from his father. During his fight with Sasuke Uchiha, he amputated his left forearm after it was burned by the flames of Amaterasu. Unlike other Kage, A seems to wear his Kage
cloak and hat on a regular basis without a shirt
underneath, further displaying his hulking
physique. He has black Fūma Shuriken tattoos on both shoulders. Up until his fight with Sasuke, he
had gold bangle bracelets on each wrist which
have protrusions that can jut out when he
attacks. Though he still wore the bracelet on his
right arm after amputating the left arm at the
Summit and even when he convened the second meeting of the Kage, since the Fourth Shinobi World War started however, he has stopped wearing it altogether.[4] He also wears a gold belt around his waist with a boar's face
engraved in the centre. All of these aspects
combined give him the appearance of a
professional wrestler.

A is very caring and protective towards his
younger brother, despite Killer B's status as a jinchūriki, and wept at the idea of his younger brother being captured by Akatsuki. However,
when Killer B's ploy to use the affair to have a
vacation was discovered, A was furious, and
swore to punish his little brother for it. He claims,
that as the Raikage, he has made peace with the
idea of having to kill his brother if the situation ever called for it.[5] He is also headstrong and somewhat easily
aggravated, smashing a desk apart when news
of his brother being captured arrived. He also
seemingly has very little patience as seen when
he burst through the window of his office to
attend the Kage Summit, smashed the table at the Summit when the conversation was deviating
and smashing through a wall to go after Sasuke.
His assistant implied that he has is prone to such
actions whenever her was in that mental state. A also has a very stern and decisive personality,
as seen when he was seemingly unaffected by
Naruto's pleas for Sasuke's life. In his eyes,
respect and strength mean everything in the
ninja world, and the weak should and will be
crushed. This correlates with his philosophy that a ninja should never compromise or bow down
in front of another ninja. A has also been shown
to be very suspicious of the other ninja villages,
accusing all of them of working with Akatsuki
and questioning their loyalties. In battle, A is
shown to be physically brutal, as he uses extreme physical force to devastate his
opponents, and is willing to sacrifice a limb,
rather than lose a chance to defeat his opponent. When he learned his brother was alive, his
attitude had mostly calmed down since his first
appearance. He spoke with civility with the other
members of the Alliance, and kept his cool during Tsunade's outburst. However, after learning that Akatsuki resurrected his father, A became
enraged again. Like his brother, the Raikage is a
compassionate person as well, as he reassured
Darui about his left arm that he lost and told him not to blame himself.[6] A also holds strongly to the belief that the
jinchūriki is not an individual but instead is a tool of the village they live in and its Kage and as
such, has no right to make decisions for themselves.
