Ice Release: Ice Breaker
Harumi's Father, real name unknown, is a Jōnin-level ninja of Getsugakure and a member of the Amaterasu Clan; as well as a powerful user of the Ice Release Kekkei Genkai and his personalized Frost Release. His current whereabouts, including mission, are unknown. He is also rumored to be a Jinchūriki, though this remains mere speculation. He simply refers to himself as Amaterasu (天照, Illuminating Heaven).
Harumi's father wears a kimono-style dress more similar to the garb some of Kirigakure's Hunter-nin favor than traditional ninja clothing, which consists of a black outfit complete with black trousers tied by a white, cloth belt. Draping his shoulders is also a ragged brown cape which ends near the back of his knees that falls about his shoulders. In addition he is commonly seen wearing a white mask as well. He is often noted to be quite tall, with his facial expressions and sharp red eyes lending him a certain degree of intimidation in his looks.
Harumi's father maintains a level of detachment even with his close family and fellow clan members. He is content enough to be a loner, wandering the lands alone and without company; with the only person he ever grew close to was Harumi's mother: a kunoichi of Konohagakure. Aside from his wife, the only other person he showed any love towards was his daughter, Harumi, as he violently instructed Naibu Sanguis to return her to her mother after finding out he was responsible for her disappearance.
Harumi's father, due mostly to his loner nature is not very open with his past or secrets. As a result little is known about his early life, except that which his daughter, Harumi, and his wife, have revealed. He was involved in the Fourth Shinobi World War as a mercenary working for Konohagakure so he could stay close with his wife and young daughter and, in his own words, kill any "fool plant that came too close".
After the war he returned to his clan, though not before teaching his daughter his own signature Powdered Snow technique, amongst them other Ice and Frost Release jutsu. A man with a white mask matching his description was rumored to have been sighted in the islands near his home some time after, while others placed him in the Land of Lightning. His true whereabouts, however, were never truly known as other rumors placed him in the Land of Earth at the same time.
Part I Edit
Although he never made a physical appearance at all throughout Part I, Naibu revealed that it was fear of Amaterasu that forced the former to surrender Harumi and her unique abilities, least he lose his life. Amaterasu's threats were the catalyst that resulted in Konoha (through Team Takahiro) becoming aware of Naibu's plans and those of Hoshigakure and her Hoshikage.
As a Jōnin, it is likely that he was well-versed in all his clan's techniques. He taught his daughter Harumi his own signature Powdered Snow technique, demonstrating great mastery of it and its derivatives as well as how to control her kekkei genkai. As a Jōnin he is likely well versed in the ninja arts and a powerful ninja in his own right as he was confident in his abilities to defeat Naibu Sanguis, shown through his threats. During the Fourth Shinobi World War he was quite capable of killing several Zetsu clones using his Frost Release.
