Ayumi Hōzuki ( 保月あゆみ, Hōzuki Ayumi, nee Saito(斎藤) is a chūnin-level kunoichi from the Saito Clan of Konohagakure, and a member of Team 3.


Ayumi was born the only child of Hodaka Saito and Katara Yuki, both of whom are members of Kohona's Shinobi Force. This meant that she was often raised by her grandmother while her parents were away on missions.

At the Academy, she quickly became friends with Sakura, Ino, and Hinata. While she wasn't ranked among the top ninja, she still managed to place somewhere in the middle compared to her fellow classmates. She showed particular promise in Genjutsu and chakra control due to her family's Kekkei Genkai.


Ayumi has a very short temper, which can lead her to becoming easily frustrated when things don't go as planned. She's also very childish and can usually be found goofing off with her teammate and best friend Hiroki Tsuchida.

She cares very deeply about her friends and Konoha. She wishes to see everyone from the leaf village succeed no matter what. She also takes great pride in being a leaf shinobi and in being a member of the Saito Clan. She's extremely determined to fully master her clan's kekkei genkai.

She has a strong dislike of anyone that has betrayed the village or that has ever tried to attack it. Any enemy of Konoha is an enemy of hers.


Ayumi is a fair-skinned kunoichi with layered medium length black hair and purple eyes. Both of her cheeks have a lavender triangular shaped chakra seal, where some of her excess chakra is sealed away. Some of these seals also appear across her body depending on how much extra chakra is produced.

In Part 1, Ayumi wears her hair up in a ponytail with bangs. Her attire consists of a collared knee-length dark purple dress that has the Saito Clan symbol on the bottom right. She wears white bandages across her left thigh. Her right arm is covered in a navy blue glove that extends down to the middle of her palm. Her headband is gold and is worn across her waist like a belt. She wears the standard Shinobi sandals.

In Part 2, she wears her hair down. She now wears a collared dark purple cropped top with a matching skirt. Underneath this, she wears a navy blue under suit that's also connected to her glove. Her headband is still worn across her waist and her standard sandals now have a heel.


Due to her clan's larger than average chakra reserves, Ayumi is very adept at medical ninjutsu.

Kekkei Genkai

Ayumi possesses the Chakra Reserves Kekkei Genkai which causes her to overproduce chakra. To prevent herself from being overloaded with chakra, she must store the excess chakra away by sealing it into different build up spots across her body. Though compared to other Saito Clan members, Ayumi doesn't produce as much chakra. This is attributed to the fact that her mother wasn't born into the clan.


Medical Ninjutsu

Ayumi is particularly talented as a Medical-nin due to her body's natural chakra reserves and as such she's able to heal a large number of people before needing a break. Additionally, she studied under Lady Tsunade for a short while to further improve her healing capabilities.

Part I

Prologue — Land of Waves

Team miyakko

Upon graduating the Academy, Ayumi is assigned to Team 3 alongside Norio Fujikawa and Hiroki Tsuchida. She's happy about having Miyako Okino as her sensei, even if it is the former's first time leading a genin team. She's also happy about being on a team with Hiroki, whom is one of her closest friends. While she never interacted with Norio much, she's not upset by the choice and looks forward to him making their team stronger.

Chūnin Exams

Her team is able to pass the first stage thanks to Norio being able to discretely pass her and Hiroki the answers to the questions. They continue to believe in each other and refuse to leave thus passing the final question.


Ayumi and Norio at the preliminary round

During stage 2, her team avoids any and all unecessary confrontations by observing others until they find a team with their missing scroll which they proceed to steal.  Ayumi's preliminary match sees her set up against a Kirigakure ninja. She's able to defeat her opponent.

For the third stage of the chunin exams, Ayumi was scheduled to fight Norio, which she looked forward to, however their match was interrupted by the Sunagakure ninjas.

Konoha Crush

While she's able to release herself from the genjutsu, Miyako keeps her right by her side while she fights the enemies. 

Later, Ayumi can be seen at the Third Hokage's funeral alongside the other villagers, mourning his death.

Her mother taught her everything that she knows about genjutsu and because of this, Ayumi has managed to become quite proficient at it. They spend most of their time together practicing.

Suigetsu Hōzuki

Ayumi fell in love with Suigetsu at first sight, as she found his strange appearance to be interesting.She was also left amazed by his ability to manipulate his body through the Hōzuki Clan Technique.
