Hisashi Akaasa (粘土久志, Akaasa Hisashi) is the First Amekage (初代雨影, Shodai Amekage; Literally meaning "First Rain Shadow") who hails from the Akaasa clan of Amegakure. He is also the Akaasa Leader of his village. Son of the legendary founder of Juinjutsu Hajime Akaasa and his wife Masami Akaasa, Hisashi would take the position as Leader of the Akaasa clan in Amegakure after his fathers death. Hisashi is also the first and current Jinchūriki of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, as well as the Shodai Amekage which had been given to him after the reset.
Hisashi has also lived for over 580 years with an appearance of a 19 year old, granted by a curse his father had bestowed upon him called the "Cursed Seal of Youth
" in hopes that one day his son could bring peace as he himself had before his death. Hisashi has lived through many wars, seen many friends and family descents die at the hands of Akatsuki
and Ninja Wars among other villages. During the previous wars against Akatsuki, however, he hasn't been allowed to fight alongside his fellow comrades due to a law created by one of the founding masters. After becoming Amekage, he lifted these rules and is now prepared to fight against the organization his father detested and defeated during his lifetime. (read more
