Ebizo (エビゾウ) is nicknamed Honoured Grandfather Ebizo (エビゾウジイ様) by the Suna villagers.
He and his late older sister, Chiyo, are highly revered in Sunagakure. He and his sister were known as the Honored Siblings (御姉弟).


Not much about his past is seen, except that he is Chiyo's Brother, and Sasori's granduncle.


He is a very calm, reserved, and apathetic person especially when compared to his sister who was often times impulsive in her actions. He also seems to be very analytical in his thinking. Like Chiyo, Ebizo believed that the village should be strong enough to look after itself without being so reliant on the previous generation or other villages, and showed disappointment when they were so helpless in saving Kankuro from poison. He is also described as optimistic.


Ebizō is an elderly man that is characterised by his heavy-lidded eyes that give him the appearance of actually having no eyes at all. He also has very long eyebrows that frame each side of his face. Along with a turban wrapped around his head, he wears the traditional Sunagakure outfit which consists of a dark coloured, loose fitting outfit with a poncho-like top.


Though little is known of his skills, it was stated that he has a strong and analytical mind that served him and Sunagakure well during the previous shinobi wars and even in his old age.

Naruto Shippuuden (Part II)

Kazekage Rescue arc

When Baki came to the siblings for help for Akatsuki abducting Gaara, they at first refused, seeing themselves no longer part of the outside world. However, when Sasori's membership in the organisation came up, they changed their minds. Upon seeing the poisoned Kankuro, Ebizo commented how much the village has weakened. He then told Matsuri, and her squad the story of the Third Kazekage, while they heading to Team Kakashi's location. While saddened by his sister's death, as he had hoped it was another one of her jokes, he couldn't help but smile at how peaceful she looked. Haruno Sakura agreed with him after he said this. Team Kakashi, and everyone prayed for Chiyo before they headed back to Suna. He then return to Suna with Team Kakashi. He along with Team Kakashi and the sand siblings gave his sister a memorial to Honor her. Ebizo then gave his sister a grave stone, even through she didn't one. Ebizo still gave her one just in case.

Five Kage Summitt arc

Ebizo could be seen standing just in front of Baki and Matsuri, along with the other villagers, seeing Gaara, Kankuro and Temari off as they left to the Summit, telling them to take good care of Gaara.

Blank Period

Ebizo, the current head of the Council, asks to discuss something with Gaara. As he slowly builds towards the topic he has in mind, Gaara tries to guess what minor personal issue it is. He is caught off guard when Ebizō reveals that he and the rest of the Council would like for Gaara to get married. Because Temari is going to be married into a Konoha clan, any children she has will be Konoha ninja. If Gaara and Kankuro should die before producing heirs, that would mean that a Konoha ninja will have a claim to the Kazekage position, something that the Council wants to avoid. Therefore, they would like Gaara to find a wife so that he can, in turn, have children.

Gaara tries to deflect their suggestion by pointing out that Kankuro, being older than him, should get married before him. He is informed that Kankuro has already been approached about it and that he successfully argued that Gaara, as the Kazekage, should marry first. The Council insists that their interest in seeing Gaara married is more of a recompense for turning him into a jinchuriki years ago than it is a political matter. Unable to argue out of the situation, Gaara accepts whatever marriage the Council decides to arrange for him.
