Kyoshi Tanaka is a tokubetsu jonin from Sunagakure. He hails from the Tanaka Clan, traditional farmers from the Land of Wind. He is well known throughout the land as a highly skilled special operations/ANBU ninja. He is highly skilled in Wind Release and auditory Genjutsu. He is mostly utilized in recon missions due to his stealth and fighting capabilities.
Kyoshi can usually be seen sporting a dark long coat, and a bandage around his forehead. He has medium length black hair and regular shinobi boots. He also carries standard ninja tools, as well as his Kusarigama.
Kyoshi is very neutral. He is laid back and conservative most of the time but will bu loud and take initiative when he needs to be. He will be nice and outgoing to people he cares for, but will remain neutral and quiet to others.
Kyoshi was born and raised for the beginning of his life on his family farm. At the age of 8 he decided to move by himself to Sunagakure to undergo his shinobi training, an uncommon occurance in his clan. There he trained and gradated the academny at age 12, and became a chunin at age 14. During this time, Kyoshi mastered his use of the Kusarigama, and became very proficient in Wind Release. Kyoshi became a Jōnin at age 16, and was appointed as an ANBU shinobi. From here, he took part in many missions, and received the name "The Ghost of the Sand".
Kyoshi's summoning is a giant owl named Mūsei, literally meaning owl. The owl can communicate telepathically with Kyoshi, and shares vision, meaning if Kyoshi is somewhere else, he can stil see what Mūsei is seeing. Mūsei also has the traits of any owl, being superior eyesight and tracking.
Kyoshi has the ability to achieve total invisibility by using his chakra infused with Mūsei's chakra to create a cloak of invisibility. The cloak also blocks detection from sensory ninja.

Kyoshi is fairly proficient in taijutsu. He has basic mastery over the elements of taijutsu, but this can be furthered with the combination/use of his Kusarigama. He has heightened mastery of this weapon due to its significance in his clan, a traditionally farm based clan, in which a sickle is used for harvest.
Kyoshi can complete basic genjutsu, however his use of auditory genjutsu makes him elite. He utilizes bird calls (specifically that of an owl) to cast illusions over enemies.
