A very powerful nin who founded the Hon clan, years before the founding of Konohagakure. He was a famous Lightning ninjutsu user and build the foundation of the Hon estate with his own hands. After him, his heirs kept expanding the Estate, though they kept the ''inner circle'', rooms that were created by Hisho himself, intact. His heirs also included a shrine to him, to worship him as their honoured ancestor. He was said to be a very strict and honest man, always being straight to the point with people. Though he was the founder of the clan, he didn't had the white hair trait. The white hair trait started with his son and was actually a common trait with the clan of his wife, who was from a long forgotten clan.
Current head :
Katsuro Hon (勝郎): name meaning "victorious son."
After that the previous head had declared Zakito wasn't longer the heir or worthy of living in the Hon estate anymore, after the latter went to Konohagakure and decided to stay there after becoming a chuunin rather then returning to serve his clan. Because of Zakito's attitude that clearly showed he had no trouble with his fate, his mother father and his younger brother and sister also moved to Konohagakure.
Enraged by this, Katsuro decided he would ignore the family of Hon that went to Konohagakure and decided to focus on his own family in the land of the Hon clan.
He is still in command of the Hon clan and is regarded as a very powerful nin as leader, knowing one of the three jutsu of the Hon's. Katsuro is known for his arrogance and the fact he thinks that Nimatsu clan should be destroyed, since he blames them for limiting the Hon clan growth.
Zakito's Twin Brother :
Satoru Hon, the previous White Blade. Also known as the reincarnation of Atsushi.
(1-暁, 2-悟, 3-聡, 4-知, 5-覚, 6-諭, 7-了, 8-智): name meaning 1) "daybreak," 2) "enlightened," 3) "fast learner," 4) "knowledgeable," 5) "perceptive," 6) "persuasive," 7) "understanding," or 8) "wise."
The twin brother of Zakito. He was so skilled and talented that he also earned the nickname of being called the reincarnation of Atsushi. Satoru was the friendly one of the two and was never seen gloomy or sad, always enjoying life to the fullest. The only time that he was seen sad was when he mourned he loss of a friend or family member. Satoru was also the adventurous one of him and Zakito.
When Zakito said he wanted to move to Konohagakure, Satoru decided he would stay at the Hon Estate. While he saw his mother, father and younger brother and sister leave to Konohagakure together with Zakito, Satoru gave his twin the advise that would change Zakito's entire life.
While he stayed behind at the Hon Estate, he continued his cruel training and managed to master the Hidden Hon Techniques at the age of just 16 years old, while the older Hon's weren't capable of mastering all three of the techniques.
However, during the First Shinobi World War, Atsushi was there to defend the Hon Estate when a Kirigakure Army marched to the Estate. During the siege, which lasted for three whole months, Atsushi had fought countless of Kirigakure nin and managed to kill three of Kirigakure's Seven Swordsman. This alone was the proof that Satoru was the real heir of Atsushi and was named the next Hon Head leader. However, just when Zakito was trying to lead the attack with the Konohagakure forces to relieve the siege, Satoru died as he was wounded and then ambushed by the Second Mizukage.
His wife was already pregnant when he died and Zakito made sure that the last wish of Satoru would be respected. His wife was sure that she had a twin, who were boys. So because of that Satoru said he wanted to give one of them a White Blade and the other his armguards. The other White Blade was never seen anymore. Many of the Hon's claim that Zakito had taken it with him, but Zakito was never seen using one of the White Blades.
Where the last White Blade is, is unknown, but legends say that the one who finds and bring the two blades together with the armguards. will receive the blessing of Satoru.
