Guren Profile Review
Guren (crimson lotus flower) is a kunoichi who appears in the second Naruto Shippuden filler arc. She is the female leader of Orochimaru's subordinates. Guren came from a small village where she was shunned by others because she had unique powers. She uses the unique Crystal Release brand of jutsu. Later, Orochimaru appeared and destroyed the entire village single-handedly. He was intrigued by Guren's powers and offered for her to come with him. Guren became the next best choice in Orochimaru's eyes as one of Orochimaru's future vessels. Guren has shown to be very mysterious, apparently preferring to keep to herself despite having a strong loyalty to Orochimaru. During her introduction, she quickly showed herself to be a remorseless and sadistic person. Guren is also shown to be vain by the fact that when she used her Jade Crystal Mirror technique, she looked at her self and said "Lovely, as always."

Guren possesses a unique ninja art; the Crystal Release. It is unclear if it is a kekkei genkai but she suggests that it is, telling Kakashi that the Sharingan cannot copy her techniques. By using this power, Guren can summon and manipulate crystal in a number of ways such as creating crushing walls or unique shuriken. It is stated by Kabuto and by Kakashi that she can crystallize moisture in the air, therefore giving her an infinite source of weapons. The density of this power appears to be very high as even the Wood Release was unable to penetrate it. This ability is presumed very powerful as Orochimaru at one point desired it for himself.
She has taijutsu skills matching those of Kakashi, whom, in battle was having a difficult time fighting Guren with her crystalline blades. She can also fight and presumably defeat Kabuto with hardly any effort at all. She is talented at using diversions, shown in how she kept the rest of Team 8 busy fighting her clones while she takes Hinata as hostage.
