Kuro Nara (黒奈良 Kuro Nara), is a Jōnin level shinobi hailing Konohagakure and is a proud member of the Nara Clan. He lead the team 'Team Kuro' which consisted of Mika Sarutobi, Hatsumi Momoka, and another Genin.
Kuro is a strong-willed, friendly, and protective man who cares most for his students than anything else. He can be somewhat lazy at times, but loves exploring and doing new things. Much liked by the village, he is often consulted when people are feeling down and has a habit of smiling randomly.
Kuro has black hair with a fringe that covers his right eye. His eyes are strangely red, and his light skin bears a strong-willed face. He wears a long brown and gold cape tied with white ribbon and has a grey shirt beneath. The shirt is covered with a blue belt half-way down, and black straps of leather with red symbols atop cover his brown pants. His feet are donned with metal at the shins, and leather shoes. A white symbol of unknown affiliation is printed on his cape.
Nara Clan Techniques
Kuro Nara has fully mastered most Nara Clan Hiden techniques, and created one of the strongest by himself, the Shadow Corruption Technique. He fought equally alongside Shikaku Nara during the Invasion of Pain Arc and was once considered as the next clan leader.
