Hoshigaki Kisame, along with Uchiha Itachi attempted to kidnap Uzumaki Naruto for Akatsuki purposes several years ago, but were effectively thwarted by Jiraiya. Itachi later explained that it isn’t time to kidnap Naruto yet. Kisame and his sword (Samehada, “Shark skin”) both have shark-like characteristics. The sword also has the ability to drain chakra.
Kisame comes from Kirigakure. He is known as the Mysterious Person of the Hidden Mist (Kirigakure no Kaijin). He is also part of the Kiri no Shinobigatana Nanajin Shu ( “Seven Swordsmen of the Mist”), as was Momochi Zabuza, presumably a group of seven Mist ninja famed for their usage of oversized swords.
Kisame’s chakra is apparently considered very large, even by the Akatsuki’s standards. Their leader even comments on his large amount of chakra.
