"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."
Kesshou Akari (明り血漿, Akari Kesshō) is the captain of the ANBU Black Ops in Sunagakure. Promoted at the age of 21, he moved up rapidly through the ANBU ranks, noted for his one hundred percent success rate as a squad commander. Ruthlessness characterizes his time in the organization, as Kesshou has repeatedly shown the capacity to callously toss aside his troops if he senses it will aid his squad in completing their task. His merciless streak, along with his rather interesting set of abilities, has earned him the title of Suna's Bloodstained Light (血塗れ光の砂, Chimamire Hikari no Suna). A nihilist philosophy dominates Kesshou's worldview. This belief set cools his heart, making him nearly incapable of true emotion. Cynicism is also borne from this, ultimately warping his personality as a powerful malediction. It has been stated, however, that Kesshou's detachment is what makes him a perfect Black Ops leader; it allows him to compartmentalize and make the impossible choices demanded of him on a regular basis. He is, however, capable of holding few things dear, especially his beloved Sunagakure, the village he has devoted himself to his entire life. Everything he is, everything he does, is for the Sand. Status and mindset aside, Kesshou's luster and his grand reputation are borne from his truly remarkable gifts. He has developed his ninjutsu arts around the manipulation of the noble gas neon, as well as his Lightning Release. Coursing the electricity of the lightning element through the particles of neon created by his chakra. Concentrated electricity at a high voltage running through the neon emits a grandiose bluish purple light, resulting in a visually transfixing, spectacular quasi-plasma. Many shinobi elite in Suna have commented that he possesses fantastic power, capable of easily being the causation of destruction as the Neon Harbinger (ネオンぜんちょう, Neon Zenchō).
