Here is Kuroshi's partner. I'll introduce him bit by bit.
Rank: S-Class Missing Nin
Village: used to be leaf
Physical Description: In his original form, Zangei is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, a little skinnier than Kuroshi, and has brown hair that is a little messy, but otherwise flat at the top but pointy at the end around the head. The hair is a little longer and curves around the sides of his face. The back is still pointy but messier and it extends about the same length as the sides, while the front extends up to just above the eyebrows. His irises are an aqua color while the pupils are dark blue. Finally, Zangei's clothing is the same as Kuroshi's except he replaces the hood with simply a high collar, he doesn't have a black sash, and his pants are just a dark grey instead of black.
History: Zangei got dead last in his academy years. He had as much chakra as Naruto did, but his chakra control was even worse. It was so bad, that he didn't graduate until 13. when he was 15, Zangei finally learned how to control his chakra properly. Unfortunately, at the next chunin exam, Zangei still was unable to pass due to a devestating defeat by a rookie who had a powerful un-named kekkei genkai. After this defeat, he became jealous because both his former teamates reached chunin 2 years ago, and they both had kekkei genkai. Zangei then sought out a forbidden un-named jutsu that allowed him to steal the souls of other people, thus stealing all their abilities. At the age of 20, he finally mastered it. In a mission, he attacked his former teammates from behind using his soul stealing technique. Horrified at what he had done, the 2 jonin's who were there attempted to kill him. With his new found power, Zangei easily killed them. He smirked, and never returned to the village. When he was 29, he met up with Kuroshi, who wanted Zangei to be his partner. Zanegei, then challenged Kuroshi, but he soon realized Kuroshi's power when he got hit by Kuroshi's Dark Style attacks. From then on, he followed Kuroshi's orders.
Personality: He is much more rational then Kuroshi and is not afraid to scold him for playing with his opponents. Despite this, Zangei has a fear of Kuroshi. Zangei is calm and intelligent, and prefers to end his battles quickly. Outside of battle, he is very proper, referring to Kuroshi as "san" and he uses honorifics for even his enemies. For those who don't know, honorifics are terms used in Japanese culture to show respect, or in some cases, "Chan" is used as disrespect, as seen with Hidan. It goes like this: "Chan" is for little kids. "San" places someone above them. "Sama" is the equivalent of "Lord". "Dono" is used usually to Daimyos, but it is used more commonly by extremely respectful people, such as Himura Kenshin.
Ninjutsu: Earth Style: Root Frenzy - (One of Zangei's few original jutsu, Summons Giant, spiked, roots out of the earth, which he uses in an attempt to crush, or impale his opponents.)
Ice Style: Icicle Rush - (Most effective in a cave-like environment, which could be created with Earth Style. Zangei slams his hand onto the ground, and any number of icicles in any pattern will sping from the ground in an attempt to pierce his opponent, assuming there's moisture in the air... (Hidden Mist jutsu anyone?)
Ice Style: Absolute - (Summons a Giant Glacier with a circular base and a very sharp pointed tip. On average, it has a radius of 1.5 meters and a height of about 7 meters. Additionally, the glacier has invisible small chakra blades surrounding it that cuts whatever gets too close to it effectively numbing whatever gets cut a little bit. Idea comes from ToS)
Ice Style: Absolute Zero! - (The same as Absolute, except the size is double, and the ice's temperature is literally Absolute Zero, hence the name. (I'm too lazy to utilize what rlly happens with stuff at this temperature...) Anyways, This attack is extremely dangerous for everyone in the area. (includes the user in most cases) It will instantly freeze anything within 5 meters of the glacier, and anything around the area will be numbed and their reaction time will be reduced, along with the possibility of frostbite, or hypothermia. Zangei however, has recently developed a pill that will negate these effects for only 2 minutes. He only has 1 though, because he could only make one once per month. Because of the risks of the jutsu, Zangei only uses it as a last resort.)
Lava Style: Lava Rainstorm - (a dangerous jutsu if the target is not a Water Style user. However, if they are, then this jutsu could be extinguished with simply a C-Rank Water jutsu. Only problem is though, is that Zangei's ice style basically turns the water into weapons... Anyways, Zangei shoot lava from his mouth into the air basically making it rain down on the opponent.)
Lava Style: Lava Bullet - (Although the attack itself is small, If the user is accurate, the jutsu is extremlely deadly because of it's sheer speed. The jutsu can be extinguished with any water attack, but it usually goes too fast for most Ninja to be able react in time. Zangei however, is a little accurate, but not super accurate. In pokemon terms, the accuracy for Zangei in hitting a vital point is 65.)
Ninja Art: Fence slash - (One of Zangei's few original jutsu. Anyway, Zangei uses a pair of Kodachi, and swings at his opponent from up to down in an X shape. Zangei channels massive amounts of Wind Chakra into his blades which makes the technique un-blockable and creates a Fence-patterned slice accross the target, effectively killing them. Zangei likes to use Shadow Clone jutsu and his speed to confuse his opponent to make completing the attack easier.)
Soul Stealing Technique - (The main source of Zangei's power. To steal a soul, Zangei simply places his hand where the heart would be from either the front or back, and rips out their soul. Zangei could only have 2 extra souls. He acquires the abilities of the victims. Each soul Zangei has gives him an extra life. If he is "killed", Zangei could sacrifice any soul in his place. Also, Zangei could take on the forms of the souls he possesses. Finally the amount of Stamina/chakra of all of Zangei's victims is added on to his own. However, there is a drawback to this. As an example only: Zangei has 300% chakra total. both his extra souls has 100% chakra. If he uses 20% chakra, and a soul dies. In addition to the chakra Zangei already uses, he loses chakra equivalent to the amount of chakra the sacrificed soul gave, thus reducing Zangei's chakra to 180%. Basically, if he's not careful, he could just die right then and there due to chakra exhaustion. Problem is, Zangei, naturally, has as much chakra as Shippuden Naruto (excluding Ninetails) Finally, Zangei could separate all the souls and have them fight independently like Kakuzu.)
various other earth, wind, water, fire, lava, and ice jutsus.
Genjutsu: Zangei has a Genjutsu that makes the opponent think the world is completely reversed, called "Flipped World". Up is down, down is up, left is right, right is left, and whatever they see that is in front of them is actually behind them and vise-verse. This idea came from bleach.
Taijutsu: Just basic Taijutsu. Nothing special.
Weapons: basic ninja equipment, along with the ability to generate short swords for a very small amount of chakra.
Kekkei Genkai: none that was acquired naturally.
To get an even better idea on Zangei's ability, here is a databook style stats:
Ninjutsu: 4.5 Taijutsu: 3 Genjutsu: 4 Intelligence: 5 Strength: 3 Speed: 4.5 Stamina: 5 Hand Seals: 4 Total: 33
