Kujaku is an anime-only character of the Naruto anime and one of the antagonists of the final pre-Shippuden filler arc, the Seimei Revival Arc. She was a kunoichi of the Village of Artisans and one of Hoki's men.
Kujaku was born in the Village of Artisans and grew into powerful kunoichi who was recruited by Hoki to help in the revival of Seimei, their village's founder, so that their village could rise and rule over all other shinobi lands. To this end, they decided to use the Hidden Sand Village's jinchuriki, Gaara's Tailed Beast.
Failed attempt to revive Seimei and deathKujaku and her teammates arrived in the Hidden Sand, them dispatching most of the guards at the entrance, leaving one alive to issue their target, Gaara, their challenge, threatening they'd take one person close to him a day until he accepted. Later they located him with his student, Matsuri, who Kujaku called out to and told she'd have to come with them after he left, taking her hostage. When they stopped later, she confirmed Gaara and his siblings were following them and demanded to be allowed first crack at them. Using her Tempest Wind jutsu, she attacked the trio, with Temari blowing it away. Battling her while ehr brothers proceeded, Kujaku's special Double-Edged Sword and its wind powers allowed her to easily overwhelm all of Temari's efforts and nearly kill her, with back arriving from the Hidden Leaf in just enough time. When Hoki, her leader, sent his signal, Kujaku and her teammates used their Ninja Tool Barrier: Reverse Scale Formation to water down Gaara's sand and make it useless(though thsi aspect was later rendered officially non-canon in the manga). Shikamaru Nara and Ino Yamanaka then joined Temari to fight her, Kujaku managing to injure the latter, before being paralized by Shikamaru and prompted killed by Temari's Summoning: Blade Dance, which swept her into the air and dropped her dead body in the water nearby.
Like her teammates, Kujaku was quite loyal in her own way to her village and desired to see it dominate all the other shinobi lands and villages. She seemed to enjoyed battle and quite arrogant about her skills, believing her opponents efforts to be in vain, which led to her demise, just like her teammates.
