KaKashi Hatake ("Scarecrow", "Farmland") is an elite ninja who used to be a squad captain of ANBU. He is the Jonin assigned to Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke. On his left eye, he wields a Sharingan which he got from his late friend, Obito Uchiha. He is considered a child prodigy due to his graduating from the academy at such a young age (with distinction). With his natural talents and remarkable skills, he quickly ascended through the ranks and became known even in other countries. Although he doesn't look it, he is said to be a ninja with skills that could rival even those of a Hokage. Despite his prowess as a ninja, he appears and acts just like any other man who dislikes tempura but loves to read "Icha Icha" adult books.
