Introduction[edit | edit source]
Rasa was the Fourth Kazekage (四代目風影, Yondaime Kazekage, Literally meaning: Fourth Wind Shadow) of Sunagakure. Renowned for his ability to use Gold Dust, Rasa's reign as Kazekage was marked by his frequent quelling of rampages by the One-Tailed Shukaku, which he had sealed into his youngest son, Gaara.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Similar to most village leaders, Rasa cared deeply for his village and it's inhabits. As such he was willing to form dangerous alliances and make questionable decisions for it's sake.
Because of his duties as leader he was torn between his love for his wife and children and his loyalty to the village. Although he loved them dearly, This inner conflict was seen when Gaara was deemed a failure by the council, he was visibly disappointed and ultimately decided to give his son one last chance before deciding whether or not to eliminate him. To this end, he was willing to set an elaborate and potentially heart-breaking lie to see his son's determination. Seeing the failure, he chose the village's safety over his son.
After allying with Orochimaru for the village's sake and prosper and the greater good are evidence to suggest that Rasa had a strong utilitarian mindset. He also had a habit of putting "value" on things which might be an allusion to the fact that he used gold dust.
Upon being resurrected by Konton he appears to have deep regrets over the way he treated his children as such believes he had no right to call himself their father. As such when his Kankuro spoke with and forgive him he cried tears of joy glad they inherited their mother's heart.
History (Naruto Manga)[edit | edit source]
Not long after Third Kazekage's assassination Rasa was selected as the 4th Kazekage.
When the Wind Damiyo began to cut on the villages budget and use the Hidden Leaf's less expensive services. he saw that village was in danger of being shut down. In order to prevent that, he decided to focus on increasing the quality of the ninja in the village. As such, he ordered Chiyo to seal Shukaku within his youngest son, Gaara to became village's ultimate weapon, as result he was born prematurely and his wife Karura died in childbirth. Despite Rasa's desperation to save her life. He then taught Gaara ninjutsu, but assigned his uncle and his brother's Yashamaru as his guardian keeping him away most of the time from his older siblings, Temari and Kankuro.

Powers and abilities[edit | edit source]
Rasa is a very powerful shinobi, as evidenced by his title of Kazekage. He could even subdue a fully released tailed beast like Shukaku. He was shown to be quite observant, pinpointing Gaara's Third Eye that was spying on him and the other reincarnated Kage after Mū sensed his chakra. He employed a stationary-type fighting style where he manipulated his Gold Dust to attack his opponents. The fact that Rasa was actively developing new techniques for the benefit of Suna indicates that his intelligence was rather high.
After his revival by Konton he shown his prowess at the Battle of Nirvana, where he defeated Kingdew, Rakuyo, Blenheim and Jozu four captains of the Whitebeard Pirates in a row. The head of the Akimich clan, Chōza Akimichi even commented that if Orochimaru decided not to kill him, the Hidden Leaf village would have been destroyed when the Sand and Sound attacked before, had Rasa had partake. Then latter faced an intense battle with the Ace of Fairy Tail, and proxy commander of the Alliance's 1st Division Gildarts Clive, pressuring him in the process before finally being defeated and later earning praise from the S-Class Wizards, leading to claim he was one of the most powerful enemies he has ever faced.

With profound research and knowledge of ninjutsu along with exceptional talent, Rasa learned the Third Kazekage’s kekkei genkai Magnet Release, a simultaneous usage of earth and wind elements. When in use, it caused dark rings to appear around Rasa's eyes, similar to the permanent ones around those of his youngest son. He utilised this ability to manipulate quantities of Gold Dust, being capable of summoning vast amounts of these particles as necessary seemingly from the immediate vicinity around him, over relatively short spans of time. When used offensively, Rasa tended to form dense, fast-moving surges that could range in size from narrow streams to colossal waves, intended to injure a target by violently crashing the compacted material into them. However, when used defensively, he instead created thick barricades of the dust that were durable enough to block large blockades of sand. He was also able to use the Third Eye technique. Due to the fact that gold is heavier than sand, he was able to use this additional weight to subdue even Shukaku whenever it went on a rampage and later stopped a massive amount of sand during his battle with his son, simply by mixing the two substances together.
