He sports a muscular and well toned physique, calm brown eyes and flowing black hair of which he usually ties up in a ponytail sporting many spikes, with a neatly trimmed fringe and well-maintained bangs which frame his face on either side. He wears a sleeveless jacket with black shoulders, over a white overshirt with the Kirigakure symbol on his sleeves, over a black undershirt, dark colored pants, white socks, sandals, and carries two katanas on his hip.
Iori used to be serious, yet arrogant and bitter due to the way he was treated and forced to live as a young child on the plains of the Land of Water. Nowadays, a self-made and strong shinobi, he trusts in his own power, which made him a little more carefree and laid back. His village has bestowed on him an inflated sense of pride and superiority, immediately holding himself and his village's powers over nearly every shinobi he encounters from the moment he meets them. He has also shown to enjoy fighting and will even seek out strong opponents just to fight them.

Iori was born during one of the many Bloody Eras of Kirigakure. The Ninja World was suffering multiple changes and it was a time of war, resulting on the death of his parents at the age of 6. This traumatic event took its tool on Iori. He wondered, alone through the Land of Water, for quite some time until he went back to his house. Alone, he strived to survive. Sometimes he was lucky enough to fish something, sometimes he was forced to steal fruit from the small stores at his town. At the age of 9, he was caught stealing and cornered by the owners of the shop who were attempting to kill him. He was saved by Jinsuke and became his student. Jinsuke was a powerful men, who had once belonged to the highest ranks within Kirigakure and he saw potential on Iori. He begun to train him and Iori was always loyal to Jinsuke. Little did he know, Jinsuke had other plans..
A few years later, now at the age of 18, Iori was now at the level of an ANBU thanks to Jinsuke. Now strong enough, Jinsuke used his contacts and recomended Iori to become part of the Mist's ANBU. At that time, the military of the Mist trusted Jinsuke so they decided to test Iori. Sent to an underground net of tunnels, with multiple cells, where bandits and traitors were kept, he had to fight to survive. This prison wasn't under vigilance at all, it was simply an underground labirynth, surrounded by sea, where the prisioners couldn't escape from. There were multiple cells, long corridors, huge rooms where one could be attacked from almost anywhere and there was barely any light, only a few lamps were still working. To get some food, one had to go to the biggest room right in the middle of the prison, where some food was thrown from a tiny hole impossible to reach on the ceiling, which was in fact a lighthouse who served as the headquarters of some division of the Mist's military force. After a year inside, now with 19, he could finally get out of that hole. He was accepted into the ANBU and by that time he had grown more arrogant and cold.
At the age of 20, now with multiple sucessful mission done as an ANBU, Iori whose greatly acknowledged, even though only his code name was known. Always loyal to Jinsuke, he sent him on a mission to assassinate traitors within Kirigakure. Even though Jinsuke was not part of the Mist's Military force anymore, Iori still carried on the mission and intercepted the Water Daimyo and killed six of the ten body guards, who supposedly would try a coup d'etat and try to kill the Daimyo. He left the scene and later the word had spread that the Daimyo had been killed. At first, Iori didn't understand but he started to put the pieces together and finally realized Jinsuke was using him to achieve more power and influence within the Water Country.
The only thing who saved him was the fact that his true identity was unknown since he was part of the ANBU and so no one ever knew he was, in part, responsible for what happened. Using that to his favour, he collected evidence and proved Jinsuke was the one responsible for the death of the daimyo.
At the age of 23 he left the ANBU and decided to train the younger shinobis of the Mist and to show them the right path. He formed multiple training programs and is now, after one year, wondering through the ninja world, trying to find himself to achieve inner peace and to get stronger in order to get Jinsuke.
