Shugosha (守護者, Shugosha) is a member of the illustrious group of assassins named the Nanabake. Due to his parents being part of these assassins, he was bred to be one of them and, at a young age, he was shown to wield the potential to be one of the greatest members who ever lived. Masking himself as an ordinary Hatake Clan member and shinobi, he mantained his cover and affiliations within the village for years whilst serving as the leader of the organization.
His lifelong career as an assassin soon reach an abrupt halt after he fell inlove with Tenten, and later becoming the father of their child: Senkai. However, due to him having to fulfil his duties as part of the Nanabake, he faked his own death and left the village due to him not wanting his son to follow his work. Shugosha was also the previous leader of the group, before renouncing the title to one he deemed to be worthy of being the Sichisama: Zenjou Kaguya, a top-tier Sunagakure archer, and one capable of surpassing the first ever Sichisama in the skill as an assassin. However, Shugosha remained loyal to the Nanabake and their cause, and would later join Zenith as a means to kill Gekihen and disband the dangerous organization once and for all.
