Asuma Sarutobi – Shinobi with the Will of Fire

Asuma Sarutobi is the son of the Third Hokage and the uncle of Konohamaru. Asuna is known as a Jōnin of Konohagakure’s Sarutobi clan, former member of the Twelve Guardian Ninja and the leader of Team 10, which consists of Shikamaru Nara, Ino Yamanaka, and Chōji Akimichi, Asuma was a wise teacher that inspired and motivated the team members of Team 10 and strengthened their resolve to carry the Will of the Fire that is part of the Konohagakure shinobi philosophy. He was a very laid-back, well-liked shinobi. He was a chain smoker and always had a cigarette in his mouth.

After Asuma became leader of Team 10, he had a special interest in the genius Shikamaru and became great friends with the young shinobi. They often played shōgi together and Asuma honed Shikamaru’s mental abilities and motivated Shikamaru to become a great tactician and strategist. Asuma and Kurenai Yuhi were in a relationship for quite a while and they have a daughter called Mirai. It is interesting to note that the name ‘Asuma’ translates to ‘true tomorrow’ and the surname ‘Sarutobi’ means ‘monkey jump’. His daughter’s name is Mirai, which translates to ‘Future’.
