Prologue.

The Namikaze clan as a proud and feared clan with an unusual called it Ōkami no chi or wolves blood. Wolves blood allowed the Namikaze clan to transform into one of three forms, trackers where they become a wolf, hunters the turned into a hybrid form of man and wolf giving them higher strength and speed.(A/N to get idea of what I am talking about type in wolf girl puzzle 1 on google and it should be the third image to pop up.) Last but not least were guardians, these namikazes were the warriors of the clan while slower than hunters they had undeniable strength. These wolves took on a more wolf like look then the hybrids did they grew in size shooting up a good two feet then they were before and becoming more muscular.(a/n basicly classic werewolf design only a little less fur and they wore clothes.) a person of the namikaze clan could turn into only one of these forms and that was decided the moment you were born with there being one exception to that rule. Alphas. Alphas as their name dictates are the head of the packs or branch families of the Namikaze clan, you were signified as an alpha if your eyes turned red instead of transforming. There was only two ways to be an Alpha.

Be born an alpha. (A/N you don't need parents that were alphas to be born one it is all a luck of the draw. Naruto will be an alpha but his father was born a hunter class wolves blood.)

You kill an alpha and steal his/her power. This is highly frowned upon and the person who killed the alpha is hunted down and has the power taken and turned over to a worthy person of being a alpha

There was a third case but that was rarer than being born an alpha. A turned wolf may be turned into an alpha after being bitten?(being turned can only happen if the wolf that bit you wants you to turn.)

When the shinobi villages began to form the Namikaze were the first to announce their independence from any village stating that the pack was their village. By the first shinobi war all 5 of the great villages and a few minor ones tried to negotiate an alliance or deal to have the Namikaze clan join up with their own village. They always left with the same answer. No. soon after being denied so many times kumo decided to take action against the clan gathering as many troops as they could spare and attacking the clan in the dead of night. That was by far one of the most bloodiest battles of the war. Kumo was able to send two-thousand troops to attack the namikaze clan number about 500 including women and children. By the end of that battle. Kumo was forced to retreat after losing a little over half their troops but it was a hard hit on the namikaze clan losing 200 packmates leaving the majority women and children, it was especially devastating since they lost almost all their alphas leaving only about 6 alphas the pack alpha (there were about thirty alphas in the Namikaze clan)

After the attack they went into hiding to grow in numbers and gain more strength by this time the first shinobi world war was over and the second world war was about to begin. Seeking revenge on kumo, the namikaze clan joined in on the war fighting them alongside any village willing to fight kumo with them. Konoha was a great assistance in this seeking revenge since they wanted payback for the death of the second Hokage. A few years later both iwa and kumo launched an attack on the base of the namikaze clan in the years since the last attack by kumo the namikaze clan has grown back up to numbers of 600 with gaining 10 new alphas making it 16 teen alphas that were capable of fighting. Like in the first shinobi this was a bloody battle only the losses were more than a few hundred it was almost the entire clan with the exception of a mother and her 3 year old child. The three year old child was Minato Namikaze. ( he was born during the middle of the 2nd shinobi war. And entered the academy at the near end of the war)

They were chased by Iwa shinobi for days never really stopping. When they reached the border of the land of fire and were assisted by a patrolling squad. When the squad came into view Minatos mother tossed her son and a large scroll to the shinobi and begged for them to take her son and run to get him to safety before turning around morphing into a guardian wolf and began to fight the two teams of jonin following her. Minato namikaze last of the namikaze clan, the last wolf. Until today.

Minato namikaze, the fourth hokage is standing beside his wife kushina uzumaki holding the kyuubi in the seal as she gives birth to their son. Kushina screamed trying to push the baby out.

"Kushina you're almost there just keep pushing love" Minato says trying to comfort her through the pain.

" SHUT UP. I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW MINATO." kushina screams at him.

"Focus Kushina the head is almost out now we just need two more good pushes" Biwako Hiruzen said. Hearing this kushina dug deep and used all her strength to get those pushes out.

"Whaaaaaaaaa" a cry was heard all throughout the cave/bunker as the new born child released his first cries of life. Hearing those cries brought great joy to his mother as she cried tears of joy with a smile on her face.

"You hear that kushina that is our newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze. Our little malstrom" Minato says to his wife as Biwako begins to bring him over two the new parents. Kushina takes the baby into her arms and looks at him. The new born baby had a rounded face like his mother but that was where similarity between the two ended. The baby boy had a tuf blonde hair atop his head. As feeling his mother's presence the newborn opened its eyes with great effort, showing he had beautiful azure eyes and saw the face of his mother. And her silky long red hair. The baby cooed at seeing his mother for the first time.

"Alright Kushina we have to take him to make sure he is nice and healthy, it will only take but a moment." Biwako says and takes naruto from her hands. Naruto begins to cry out at being taken from his mother. Biwako begins coo over him to calm him down.

" okay now let's take care of this seal. Then we can spend as much time with our little wolf as we want" minato says and places his hand over the seal and begins to strengthen it to close..

CRASH

Whaaaa

The sound of a crash and their sons crying brings the new parents attention to the source. They see Biwako on the ground with blood coming out from under her, the anbu surrounding the compound were lying dead at the feet of a masked man who was holding a crying naruto.

"Minato namikaze step away from the Jinchuuriki or your newborn son will die just minutes after life" the masked man says. Minato can feel his animal side starting to come out as his body slowly becomes covered in brown fur on his arms,legs and chest and he grows a long tail and wolf ears on the top of his finger nails turn into claws.

"Ah I see that your namikaze blood is starting to boil at me threatening your pup and mate." the masked man said before quickly throwing naruto out the opening in the cave/bunker. Minato threw a hiraishin kunai at Naruto and teleported to it grabbing him when he noticed the paper bombs on the blanket.

(shit) Minato quickly removes naruto from the blanket teleports to the nearest hiraishin kunai. After ensuring naruto is safe mina to goes and gathers his equipment and goes after his wife.


(Later)

minato and his wife Kushina stand impaled on the claw of the kyuubi stares down at their son naruto who was sleeping away blissfully unaware of everything going on around him.

"Naruto..Don't be picky.. Eat lots and grow strong..Make sure that you bathe every day and stay warm..also.. Don't stay up late.. You need lots of sleep..And make friends.. You don't need a lot of friends..Just a few.. Ones you can really, really trust..I wasn't very good at it, but keep up with your studies and practice your ninjutsu hard..Remember that everyone has strengths and weaknesses..So don't get too depressed if you can't do something well..

Respect your teachers and upperclassmen at the Academy..Oh, and this is important.. It's about the Three Prohibitions for a shinobi..Be extra careful about lending and borrowing money..

Put your mission wages into your savings account..No alcohol until you're twenty.. Too much can ruin your health, so drink in moderation..Another Prohibition is women..I'm a woman, so I don't know too much about this but..All you need to remember is that this world is made up of men and women..So it's only natural to take an interest in girls..But just don't get hooked on bad women.. Find someone just like me.. But now that I think about the damn council will want you in the CRA so find women who can accept that you will have to share your love with others.. Speaking of the Three Prohibitions, be wary of Jiraiya Sensei, you know..Naruto, from now on, you're going to face lots of pain and hardship..

Be true to yourself.. Have a dream and have the confidence to make that dream come true..

There's so much.. Oh, so much more that I want to pass on to you.. I wish I could stay with you longer..I love you" Kushina said to her son as she cried her sorrows at not being able to watch him grow up.

"Naruto .. your a Jinchuriki and a namikaze so life is going to be tough but you can endure it.. You are the last of our clan and it will be a big responsibility our clan's bloodline will form when you turn 6.. And when you go through the first transformation it will hurt like hell buddy.. But i know you are destined for greatness. The rest of what I want to say is the same as what your nagging mother has said so I have only one thing to say are clan's motto: The wolves guard the world from evil, our howl shines light onto the dark world.. take care my little wolf and bring the namikazes into a new heir of greatness." minato said as he finished his seal and sealed the entire kyuubi into his son along with some of his chakra and some of kushina's chakra.

And so begins the tale of Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze the wolf of the leaf.


Author's notes:

Hey this is hallowmask123 releasing a new story. Hope you enjoy it.

Like I said up top this story was inspired by beast of war. I love that story and with he would update more often. But this story will be switched between my one piece story Luffys Thunder Legion as the main one. This is an idea I have had for quite a while but never had the confidence to write it till now. Hope you enjoy it.

Here are questions I can already see coming so lets take care of them.

1. Is this a harem fic? Yes it is.

2. who is in the harem? There are only two girls who are definitely in the harem and that is Hinata and Haku.(haku is a girl I don't care what Kishimoto says Haku is A girl. If you want a girl in the harem review and I will take it under advisement. you can alsoput in what type of wolf she could be. but remember not all of the harem will be turned.

there be lemons? I haven't really decided so it's a big maybe with a coin toss in the air. Literally, I am actually flipping a coin to decide.

4. Will being turned affect bloodlines? I kind of am debating that because there are many pros and cons to this.

I will try and reply to all reviews and pms as best as I can. Okay that about covers the first author's note I believe so sayonara.

Hallowmask123.
