|“||Now that you've become Kazekage… And you've made real friends… and you have real connections with people. Those are all the things I stole. …But I, your father, never did a thing for you. …No… I couldn't even call myself your father…||„|
|~ Rasa to Gaara|
Rasa was the Fourth Kazekage of Sunagakure. He is the father of Temari, Kankurō, and Gaara, and husband of Karura.
When Orochimaru approached Sunagakure with the proposition of joining forces in invading Konohagakure, he agreed due to the economic decline brought about by the Land of Wind's daimyō using the shinobi of Konoha. Hoping that the success of the invasion would prompt additional funding, he planned to have Gaara unleash Shukaku from the center of Konoha during the Chūnin Exams to put the Konoha shinobi at a disadvantage from the get-go. However, before he could see his plans unfold, he was murdered by Orochimaru impaling him in the chest with the Sword of Kusanagi.
