Kakuzu has the weight of one hundred and seventy ninepounds and has the height of six and four inches. He has a slightly buff buy skinny frame with light cream skin, golden yellow eyes and blonde hair. He wears black jeans, a fishnet shirt underneath a long black leather jacket, black shoes and a black, leather eyepatch to cover his left eye.
Kakuzu was born from within the confines of the earth republic in a rural village from his earth bender mother Yuu and his non bender father Kaichi. Before and after his birth, Kaichi has made a decent living as a blacksmith within the village but planned to move to a better area as soon as his son was old enough to travel with his mother and father. During the nine years of young Kakuzu’s life, his parents prepared to leave else where to republic city. Since there weren’t any kids his age within such a small village, the clingy child wasn’t too attached to his home so leaving wasn’t so hard. Having such time to prepare during Kakuzu’s time growing up, Kaichi had his eye at a workshop and store space he booked for some time back when he travelled to republic city to see the store. Packing all of their essentials, Kaichi, Yuu and little Kakuzu travelled through a few areas to get some more supplies before going to the ports.
During the family’s travel, they decided to spend some time in another village to rest up before they went down the rest of the trick. Within a forest near the village they planned in going, Kakuzu was distracted by the scenery and accidently got separated from his parents. Wandering around the forest in wonder, he aimlessly kicked a rock that stubbed his toe. Angry at his own clumsiness, he stomped onto the ground in a fit and was shocked at what happened. He accidently made a few rocks float around him for a few seconds before it fell back onto the ground. Delighted by his new found power, he continued stomping on the ground until he began to make a small tremor which signalled something ferocious to look at his direction.
Turning around at the sudden growling, Kakuzu was quickly frightened and intimidated by the hungry eyes of an armadillo wolf right about to prance at the young boy. Seeing that it was going to attack at any minute, the child ran away screaming for his parents. At the worst time, Kakuzu tripped and fell as the armadillo wolf was seconds away from catching the child and tearing him limb from him. Lucky from him though, a boulder flew above him and struck the vicious animal. He only saw a glimpse of the person who saved him before running away to his mother and father which he eventually ran up to when he made it to the village. Yuu and Kaichi embraced their scared and crying child and assured he was safe. While he calmed down, the boy who saved him came back to the village and after hearing what happened was commended by the village residents for saving the defenseless boy.
Going up to the one that save their child’s life, the parents came upfront to the boy with Kakuzu clinging to his mother to thank him for what he did. Looking to the child, his mother gently pushed him forward to socialise with someone near his age. Responding to a shy and reclusive hello from Kakuzu, he smiled and introduced to himself as Gosuki. Thinking that it would be good for Kakuzu to at least make a friend and rest for the long trip, they decide to stay for a day and leave tomorrow. With their parent’s staying in an inn, the boys started to get to know one another. Having a few things in common and both being earth benders, the both bonded very well. Gosuki even taught the recent earth bender a few tricks to hell him control his power. They both talked, played and explored the forest as close friends despite not having much history each other. For the first time in his life, he has a friend that he cherishes. Later during the night, Kakuzu was able to spend the night at his house with his and Gosuki’s parent and had the most fun he has ever had. The next day, his parents packed their things to leave and gave Kakuzu a little more time to see his friend. Gosuki and Kakuzu spent their last few moments laughing and messing around before Gosuke promised that he would come visit him in republic city when he gets older. Taking such a promise by heart, the child said his goodbye to him and his family before they continued their path to republic city.
A quiet five years have passed since they settled in e republic by boat and Kakuzu have grown to be more enjoying when he looks around the city. It didn’t mean he was air headed enough to take the city lightly though, his loving and concerned parents practically scold him about how dangerous the city is and to not break curfew. He usually spend his time going to school and helping out his father in his small shop and armoury. In his personal time, Kakuzu would usually try to improve his earth bending with a help from a few scrolls and his mother Yuu. Things have been going well for a while in his family, besides a few shady guys in suits now and then speak in to his father. It usually ends with his father yelling at them to leave and the men angrily grumbling something about “Being on their district” and some stuff about his debt he should pay and a syndicate he didn’t understand while on the way out. Kakuzu tried not to pry into his father’s business and continue doing what he usually does. But things took a turn for the worse when he came home from practicing his earth bending a few days later after the incident.
The fourteen year old was horrified to see to see his father bleeding profusely while getting kicked down and his mother getting held to a wall by the throat. As soon as he saw a blade plunge into his mother’s stomach, Kakuzu ran with a levitated chunk of rock to toss at his head but his other associate redirected the earth somewhere else which gave the blade wielder enough time to slash the boy at his face. Heavily bleeding and struck at his eye, he was knocked to the ground by the man and was constantly beaten. After a while, the men have successfully beaten the poor man to death and proceeded to leave. The guy that lead the group only looked down on the child he potentially scarred for life before making his way to the exit, grumbling something about his father having to pay what he owed. Kakuzu could only catch a glimpse of the backs of the men that killed his parents so horribly before he blacked out.
The boy awoke not too long ago in a hospital bed. His vision was temporarily blurry until he realized he could only see through his right eye. A doctor sees the boy up and went to check on him. She explained to Kakuzu that he was picked up by ambulance from the armory which his parents unfortunately was murdered in. While she did a simple check up on the child, Kakuzu only held an emotionless, life deprived face as he remembered the carcasses lying on his family’s shop which were his parents. He had no idea what happened and why his parents had to die but he did remember them talking about a syndicate. A syndicate of what was the only thing he wanted to know. And who exactly he had to kill to avenge their deaths. Waiting until the doctor left, Kakuzu snuck through the ward and eventually found where his clothes was. Ironically enough, he say a bunch of other clothes and accessories but a leather eyepatch caught his attention. Leaving the hospital with his clothes and a new eyepatch, Kakuzu ventured forth to figure what this syndicate was and who exactly ruined his life.
It has been a good four years since the incident involving the death of his parents. Kakuzu have taken most of his time to train hard in the most lethal ways of earthbending he possibly could. With his new found skills, he had searched for some of the low level grunts from the syndicate and painfully extracted some information regarding the people involved. This method was useful but he couldn't aim as big as he wanted, not by himself at least. With the idea that he would need a skilled team to do some serious damage to the syndicate, kakuzu planned to destroy every single living thing associated with the organization from the ground up.
If it wasn’t for that unfaithful day he was violently separated from his parents, Kakuzu would most likely ended up a more merciful person than he is now. Ever since the dreadful incident, he has grown a natural lack of empathy for the people he kills as long as he could get what he wants the most. He doesn’t lash out and harm any innocent people specificly but would not care a bit if they get caught in the crossfire. By his dead eyes, or eye in his case, and permanently tired look, it’s clear that he is still scarred from what happen.
But currently after his training and some time growing into a fullfledged adult, he has spent his spare time having fun from robing and killing syndicate expendables and others getting in his way to partying and sleeping with multitudes of women. This sudden shift of personality lead him to be less like a blood thirsty brat from before to a calm, charismatic guy. When doing his job however, kakuzu becomes more calculating and merciless mlre than when the opportunity demands it. He can sometimes loose it pretty easily when goaded or if someone wished to go against him. He may look like a leathery heart throb on the outside, but within all that charm lies a man thinking of various ways to end your life
