Personality and traits
As the scion of a large legacy, Kazashi is extremely determined, loyal, and motivated. He has a bit of an inferiority complex due to the achievement towards his family, past and present, such as his father's position as a Kodenbushi, and both of his older brothers as a Seieibushi. Kazashi also still possesses naivete due to his youth, and has a noticeable stubborn streak. Despite his feelings of inferiority, Kazashi is in actuality a skilled prodigy. Although he was lacking in chakra shape transformation, he had long mastered the much more difficult nature transformation in conjunction with his sword.
