Asuma Sarutobi bio
Personality:Asuma was typically a laid-back individual, and did not get
himself involved in things unless necessary, as seen when he decided not
to help save Hinata Hyūga during the Chūnin Exams. He was often seen smoking and smoked about two packs of cigarettes a day. Despite this, he would break the habit when something was bothering him, such as when
the Third Hokage died. He would also stop smoking if "something is
going on", as seen prior to his last encounter with Akatsuki.

Asuma had a very close relationship with his team, even though he believed it to consist of a "glutton" (Chōji), a "loud mouth" (Ino), and
a "slacker" (Shikamaru). He often took them to Yakiniku Q for lunch and dinner. Often times Chōji would eat too much and Asuma had to pay more

natures, he attempted to use bribery and outright trickery to manipulate
them into doing what he wanted. This was seen most with Chōji, who

Throughout the series it had been heavily hinted that Asuma was
romantically involved with fellow jōnin Kurenai Yūhi. The two appeared together in most of their scenes, and the other characters made it a
point to note this fact on several occasions. When Kakashi Hatake found
the two together at a dumpling shop, Kakashi asked if they were on a date, to which Asuma responded by quickly changing the subject. In a flashback, Asuma was shown buying flowers for a person he refused to
name, though Ino asked that he say hello to Kurenai for her anyway, to
which Asuma nervously asked how she knew about it. During asuma's battle with Hidan and Kakuzu, Kurenai was often shown wondering about
his progress, appearing anxious.
Of his students, Asuma spent the most time with and was closest to, Shikamaru. Asuma and Shikamaru often played shōgi or Go in their free time, though Asuma was never able to beat Shikamaru. It was Asuma who first discovered that the lazy Shikamaru was actually a genius.
