Outfit: Well, going rather unusual for the hot desert, Kankurou sports black robes, with a pointy-eared hat. They're long and heavy, just like the luggage of puppets he carries around. Though, he used to hold them manually, they're now resting in summoning scrolls which are placed in a scroll-holder on his back. With war picking up, he has started to add a Shinobi Alliance flack jacket to his attire. A little more protection is always nice, isn't it. Even for a ranged fighter. His face carries the purple marks of the Puppet Corps; traditions, traditions.

Out of tradition, in actual freetime, he goes as lax, as his combat outfit his traditional. Shinobi pants and shirt, both black and shirt with a pouch to the back of his waist. In this state he carries neither his puppets nor face-paint. Only his normal, fair complexion and brown, shaggy hair. Some bandages here and there, like your everyday shinobi from Hidden Sand.

Persona
Personality: Being a puppeteer, is a unique skill in Sunagakure. Not everyone can manage the chakra control and oversight required to guide puppets into battle; this makes Kankurou a proud member of Sunagakure. He is aware of his skills, and insists on them being recognized. Almost a tad arrogant in some situations, his knowledge of his puppets, makes him appear bold in his skills and less silent than his brother, Gaara, for example.

Family; the relationships in the line of Sabaku could be described as a little challenged, or rather, they used to be. With his younger brother being the Ichibi's host, Kankurou used to fear the power that was his brother, as same as any other villager of the time. Yet, he also clashed with Gaara's indifferent behaviour. Kankurou, being the older brother, didn't like the fact of Gaara not outright respecting him. But all that has changed, obviously. Through the turns of time, explained in the character's history. Kankurou has a good relation to his younger brother, which is the Kazekage now. Or as good as it can be, with their past, sometimes awkward moments still resurface. Despite all that, Kankurou cares deeply to the point of engaging an S-Class Akatsuki, all on his own while hunting a defeated, carried-off Gaara in hot pursuit through the desert.

Given, the relationship between his sister is not as stained as that to his brother, they were on the same side once; suffering from Gaara and fearing him. And even after the Kazekage's transformation, they're still on the same lane -- loving their little brother, which is not to say they can't relate without him.

Hobbies; working on his puppets. Collecting them. Designing weapons.

Favourite Food; Steak Hamburger, grilled.

History:
Spoiler:
Chūnin Exam Arc Edit Chūnin Exam Arc sectionEdit

Soon after their arrival in Konoha for the Chūnin Exams, Kankurō and his siblings ran into Team 7. Although Kankurō was tempted to pick on its members, he was threatened by Gaara to stop. During the written portion of the exam, meant to test the examinees' cheating abilities, Kankurō disguised his puppet Crow as a proctor. After using Crow to gather answers from other tests, Kankurō asked to go to the bathroom. Crow escorted him and gave him the answers.

During the survival portion of the exam, he was seen, only briefly, by Kiba, Shino, and Hinata while Gaara brutally murdered a team of Rain Genin.

During the preliminary matches, Kankurō was paired with Misumi Tsurugi. Misumi quickly wrapped himself around Kankurō's body, threatening to break Kankurō's neck if he did not forfeit. Kankurō refused, so Misumi made good on his threat by appearing to kill Kankurō. Before the match could be called in Misumi's favor, the Kankurō that Misumi attacked was revealed to have been Crow in disguise. Crow quickly grabbed hold of Misumi and constricted him before he could surrender. Misumi survived, but was in no condition to fight, and Kankurō was declared the winner.
Invasion of Konoha Arc Edit Invasion of Konoha Arc sectionEdit

In the final round matches set to take place a month later, Kankurō was scheduled to fight Shino Aburame. Because he was to take part in Sunagakure's invasion of Konoha, planned to begin before his match with Shino, Kankurō outfitted Crow especially for the invasion. When the invasion was delayed and Kankurō's fight with Shino was to begin, Kankurō forfeited, not wanting to reveal Crow's new features.

When the invasion began, Kankurō and Temari escorted an injured Gaara out of the village. When they discovered they were being followed, Kankurō stayed behind to buy time. Before he could engage their pursuer, Sasuke Uchiha, Shino arrived to fight him instead, wanting to have the battle he was denied in the finals. Sasuke continued following Gaara, while Shino and Kankurō began to fight. Kankurō had Crow begin an immediate assault, but Shino avoided the attacks and, unbeknownst to Kankurō, planted a bug on him. Kankurō then launched a poison smoke bomb at Shino. Shino inhaled some of the gas, but was able to escape and use his bugs to trap and restrain Crow. Before he lost complete use of Crow, he tried to launch a final attack, only to discover that Shino's bugs, guided by the bug placed on him earlier, had found his location and consumed all his chakra.

Kankurō is left unable to move, but Shino, because of the poison gas he inhaled, passed out and couldn't finish him off. He was later found by Temari, and together they helped Gaara get back to Sunagakure. Gaara, having been defeated by Naruto, wearily apologized to both of his siblings. Kankurō, utterly shocked, stammered out words of forgiveness.
Sasuke Retrieval Arc Edit Sasuke Retrieval Arc sectionEdit

Kankurō and his siblings were sent by Sunagakure to help Konoha retrieve Sasuke Uchiha. Kankurō came to the aid of Kiba Inuzuka and his dog Akamaru, saving them from Sakon and Ukon. While Crow protected Kiba and Akamaru from Ukon, Sakon tried to use his Parasite Demon Demolition Technique to fuse with Kankurō's body. It was revealed to be Kankurō's new puppet, Black Ant, in disguise, which immediately attacked Sakon. Kankurō had Crow navigate Sakon and Ukon into Black Ant's body, trapping them. Crow then split apart to reveal an assortment of weapons that bombarded and pierced Black Ant, killing Sakon and Ukon.

After the battle ended, with Sasuke gone and almost all of the Konoha ninja hospitalized, but alive, Kankurō and his siblings were seen off by Shikamaru Nara.
Part II Edit Part II sectionEdit
Kazekage Rescue Arc Edit Kazekage Rescue Arc sectionEdit

Two and a half years later, when Gaara was defeated and captured by Deidara and Sasori, two members of Akatsuki, Kankurō followed in hot pursuit, determined to stop them from taking his brother. To defeat the Akatsuki pair, Kankurō released his puppets from their carrying scrolls (Crow, Black Ant, and his new puppet Salamander) to challenge the Akatsuki members. Sasori agreed to fight, but immediately repelled an attack from Crow, revealing himself to be the puppets' creator, thus knowing all of their secrets.

Since their fight went unseen in the manga, the anime adaptation explained the circumstances of Kankurō's defeat. While able to combine the use of his puppets with great effectiveness, Kankurō was unable to bypass Sasori's defenses. Sasori captured each of the puppets in turn, disassembling them, before attacking Kankurō with his poison-coated tail. Kankurō collapsed, but with the last of his strength, was able to have a piece of Crow tear off part of Sasori's cloak. Sasori left, giving Kankurō three days before the poison killed him.

Soon after, Team 7 arrived at Sunagakure to help in rescuing Gaara, and while they were there, Sakura Haruno cured Kankurō, and created an antidote from the poison still in his system. Kankurō then provided Team 7 with the part of Sasori's cloak that he had taken, which they used to track down Gaara. He was shown to be very irritated that he could not be the one to rescue Gaara. After a few episodes he was seen attempting to walk, though would have fallen over if Baki had not been passing by his room and caught him. He then attended the meeting with the council and tried to punch a council member for stating the village would be better off without Gaara, though was stopped by Baki. He was seen again when he was in his bedroom and a photo of him and his siblings fell and cracked, an omen signifying Gaara's death. Kankurō later set out with Temari to catch up with Team 7 which was shown to be his idea when Temari stated his plan had fallen apart. When Gaara was found and revived, he was the one who explained to Naruto about the puppet core and the technique used by Chiyo to revive Gaara. Kankurō joined Temari in thanking Team 7 for saving their brother, and personally thanked Naruto.

The Sand Siblings' new look.

Kankurō was seen coming late to escorting Gaara to the five Kage meeting called for by the Fourth Raikage. Temari was also there, scolding him for being late, as they were escorting Gaara to the Summit of the Five Kage together. Kankurō countered that he was only late because it had taken him a "while to figure out [a] new trick" and that it wasn't like Gaara needed bodyguards. Kankurō's facial make-up and outfit had once again changed.

Kankurō and his siblings were all later seen as having made it to the Five Kage Summit, being hosted in the Land of Iron, safely without incident, and were greeted by Mifune and his samurai. He made a comment that it was cold and that the weather there was the opposite of what it was like in the Land of Wind. Kankurō, along with Temari, watched as the Kage held their meeting, becoming annoyed with the Third Tsuchikage's comments towards Gaara's youth and inexperience as a Kage. He was later seen going on the offensive momentarily along with the other escorts when the Raikage crushed the section of the table in front of him, revealing an unknown white-cloaked puppet; but was stopped at Gaara's request. When the white half of Zetsu appeared, he went on the defensive, bringing out his cloaked puppet again.

Later on, Kankurō joined his siblings in joining the Raikage's fight against Sasuke. As they made their appearance, Kankurō used his Chakra Threads to first pull the burning armor off of a samurai, and then to puppeteer his new white-cloaked puppet once more, then revealed to be the puppet body of Sasori. The Sand Siblings and Darui attacked Sasuke simultaneously, with Kankurō in particular showing off his new Red Secret Technique: Machinery Triangles, though it proved to be useless against Sasuke's upgraded Susanoo. Sasuke escaped and got inside the Summit. Kankurō was protected from the collapsing room by Gaara's sand, like his sister and Darui, and the group chased Sasuke back up to the Summit.

When they arrived there, Madara was seen holding an unconscious Sasuke, and explained his "Eye of the Moon Plan". When the Kage refused to give Akatsuki the two remaining Jinchūriki, he declared the Fourth Great Shinobi World War, and left. The Kage later agreed that the Raikage should become the leader of the new Shinobi Alliance, and Kankurō, along with the others present, bore witness to the birth of this alliance.

Later on, the siblings interrupted Naruto and Sai's conversation regarding Sakura, and explained what had happened in the Five Kage Summit. Kankurō then left with Gaara and Temari to return to the Land of Wind.
Shinobi World War Arc Edit Shinobi World War Arc sectionEdit
Kankurō leading the Surprise Attack Division.
Deva 27Added by Deva 27

Kankurō is placed in the Surprise Attack Division alongside Sai and Omoi as their captain. Omoi questions if Kankurō will make a good captain as he's so young. Once again, he sports a new facepaint design, similar to the style he had during the Sasuke Retrieval Arc, but without the stripe going down the bridge of his nose. He also once again has three scrolls on his back, as during the Kazekage Rescue Arc. The squad later moved out on Sai's ink birds.

Omoi begins to worry about the war, and when he comments he and Kankurō are almost the same age and asks if it is Kankurō's first time fighting in a war, Kankurō says it is. Omoi then asks him if he's worried, and Kankurō says that because how they perform will make a huge impact on the outcome of the war the only thing he should be thinking about is how to make the operation a success. That is, if Omoi wanted to protect his family and friends.

After landing in enemy territory, Kankurō immediately gives out orders and the party sets up base. However, they soon encounter an injured Muta Aburame, but Kankurō easily sees it as a trap recognizing Muta's movements as being odd. He quickly saves Zaji, and thanks to Ittan, they escape the ensuing explosion. When Deidara reveals himself, he calls out for Sasori to reveal himself also, knowing that it was him controlling the ninja. Both Deidara and Kankurō identify each other as Ambush Divisions and Kankurō claims that it's rare for two Ambush Squads from opposite sides to encounter each other. When Omoi cuts Sasori's chakra threads from Tokuma and Ranka, Kankurō attaches his own to Sasori's and pulls him into the battlefield, telling Ittan to raise the earth again, causing Sasori to hit it hard. Sasori praises him for the improvement of his technique, and Kankurō says he's flattered, but that his Black Secret Technique has surpassed Sasori's Red Secret Technique before revealing Sasori's former puppet body.[4] He then commands Ittan to protect the injured in a protective dome. Kankurō fights Sasori, who uses Shin as a puppet. Hoheto alerts Kankurō that Shin has Deidara's clay inside him. Kankurō uses Salamander, which was hidden underground, to smother the blast. When Sai attacks Deidara and Sasori, he uses two Black Ant puppets to capture them, using Crow to impale Sasori. Kankurō then uses the coil of Sasori's puppet body to make sure the Black Ant puppets will remain closed. He then tells Sasori that his strength came from his soul not in spite of it and that the way he should have been immortalized was through the puppets he'd leave behind that he put is heart and soul into making. He then says that he should have been a top class puppeteer not someone that allows someone else to manipulate him, and that one's soul forever remains in his creations. Sasori acknowledges Kankurō's words and as his soul begins to return to rest, he calls out to Kankurō, entrusting his Mother and Father puppets to him, and leaving him with instructions to pass them on to the next generation. As Sasori's form reverts to dust and ash, Kankurō explains that it looks like their enemy's technique has a hole in it, pointing out that people's inner emotions aren't so easy to restrain.

No, you have to actually paste the whole wiki information in there, not just link it. Fail!
