"Maybe you should stop and consider what is possible before immediately labeling an action as impossible. You'll find that most things are possible when you face them head-on with an iron clad will and determination. That is the essence of strength I strive towards."

Rosuto Nagakura (ロスト長倉, Nagakura Rosuto) is an S-rank missing-nin of Kirigakure, former Clan head of Kirigakure's Nagakura Clan, former Hunter-nin, former member of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, former affiliate of the Allied Shinobi Forces and former leader of the Border Patrol Team. He is also the father of Kenji Nagakura and one-time lover of Kaede Nara. In addition he is held as one of the strongest Shinobi in the current era.
Rosuto has a lean-built, muscular appearance and is quite tall; standing at a full height of 6ft 2in. Despite appearances he is actually quite strong physically as he makes use of Nichiyō Rōzuobu's muscle stimulation to increase muscle contraction. He usually wears his blond-colored hair in a messy fashion after the style his deceased father once favored as a means of paying homage, held in place by a red-colored bandanna that frames his face that has the symbol of Kirigakure sowed into it in place of a traditional Ninja headband. His hair hangs between his eyes, with two bangs on either side of his head to frame it. Like his hair, Rosuto has noticeably yellow eyes that many have compared to glowing embers because of their color. Rosuto also appears to have piercings on his right ear; mainly focused around the lobe and has several red banded tattoos covering his chest and upper body that actually serve as his summoning tattoo. Rosuto usually wears a kimono-style dress, with a white shitagi, white kosode, white hakama, a white hakama-himo, white tabi, and average straw waraji. Much like his father before him, Rosuto also wears the symbol of the Ying and Yang; only his is spread across the left sleeve of his kosode instead of being on his back. Overall, his sense of dress shares some resemblance to that of former hunter-nin Haku and Ao, who both had connections to Kirigakure.
Powers and Abilities Edit
As a former member of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, Rosuto possesses a large level of skill in Kenjutsu. His skill was apparent even at a young age as his natural skill and aptitude for Kenjutsu as an art-form surpassed many of those among the Kazuki Clan who are well known as some of the most skilled practitioners of Kenjutsu within Konohagakure, which he demonstrated during that years Chūnin Exams. He can easily utilize his sword -- Nichiyō Rōzuobu -- with either one hand or two. Rosuto is known for his calm and fluid motions, strikes and maneuvers, rarely wasting any movement -- resulting in his form appearing quite artistic and dance-like when he performs it in battle.
His skill is such that he rarely seems the least bit taken aback by the abilities of his opponent during battle situations of any kind, even when they seemingly have an advantage. When used in conjunction with the near 360 degree vision granted by his implanted Byakugan, Rosuto can easily predict and counter attacks from various angles such as back attacks and flanking strikes; being fit to discern the location of his foe even if they are hidden behind solid objects.
While the circumstances behind his acquirement of the Hyūga Clan's Kekkei Genkai have yet to be elaborated on, Rosuto has shown a great deal of skill with his Byakugan; the great Dōjutsu granting him x-ray vision, nearly 360-degrees of it in fact, and the ability to see chakra networks and even recall those he has previously seen. It also allows him to operate normally when shrouded by his Smoke Release jutsu.
The Byakugan has a small blind spot at the upper thoracic vertebrae, a weakness Rosuto is actually aware of and even though he has no training in the Hyūga Clan's Taijutsu, he can still cover for it using Nichiyō Rōzuobu and the same spinning motion used with the Eight Trigrams Palms Heavenly Spin. His skill, however, is nowhere near as pronounced as one born with the Byakugan, as Neji Hyūga and Hinata Hyūga have demonstrated vast visual range, while Rosuto himself is limited to a mere 300 meters around his person which is less than half of what Neji was capable of during the events of the Fourth Shinobi World War.
