We are what we are

Chapter 1: The deception of the past

Konohagakure no Sato also known as the village Hidden in the Leaves. The village founded by the two strongest shinobi of their time. Even now almost sixty years later after Hashiramas death, Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha are still known as the two strongest shinobi to ever grace the planet. Both individuals were respected and strong leaders of their clan.

Hashirama being the leader of the Senju Clan. This clan was also often referred to as the Senju Clan of the Forest. The reason for the name being Hashiramas Kekai Genkai (Bloodline Limit) – the Mokuton (Wood Release).

Although Hashirama was the first and last person in history who awakened the Kekai Genkai the clan was wildly known for it.

Hashirama was also the second person who held the title of Kami no Shinobi (God of Shinobi). The only person who could ever challenge the Senju was his live long rival, friend, and enemy – Uchiha Madara.

The Senju Clan the clan with a thousand skills its members being feared for their great skill in tai, gen and ninjutsu. The only clan in that could measure up to the strength of the Senju Clan was the Uchiha Clan.

The Uchiha Clan – the other founding clan of Konohagakure no Sato besides the Senju Clan. The clan known for their visual powers the Sharingan. The dojutsu allowing Uchiha's to copy all tai, gen and ninjutsu.

Their leader at the time Konohagakure no Sato was founded was nonother than Uchiha Madara.

The man was known as its strongest member . Some even say that no other Uchiha will ever be as strong as he was. The first man who possessed the EMS (Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan). Besides that, the man was known for the use of his war fan which was one of the six tools created by the Sage of six Paths himself. He used the fan to hammer his opponents away and to power up his godly Katon (Fire Style) Justus.

Before the time of the 5 Great Villages the existing clans fought for dominance. The Senju and Uchiha were arch nemeses. But the constant fighting almost ended with both clans going extinct.

To avoid extinction Senju and Uchiha signed a peace treaty with another which forbid any fighting between Uchiha and Senju. But the Uchiha and Senju were like water and oil- unable to work together.

Due to the treaty, both clans being tired of the constant fighting and the growing danger of both clans going extinct due to fighting Konohagakure no Sato was founded. The village was founded on the belief that a peaceful co- existence between Uchiha, Senju and other clans was possible.

The clans that joined Konoha after its foundation were the Aburame, Inuzuka, Hyuga, Yamanaka, Akamichi, Hatake and Kurama Clan. Each of the clans contributed something towards the Hidden Leaf Village.

But the two founding clans never got along even after the signed peace treaty. Maybe it was in their blood to oppose, to hate each other. It did not necessarily help either that the two Clans had very different ideals.

The Senju were peaceful humans who wanted to bring peace to this world through love and understanding. The Uchiha on the other hand wanted to bring peace through power.

Naruto remembered those facts as he sat above the Hokage Monument. Or more precisely the head of Hiruzen Sarutobi- third Hokage of Konohagakure no Sato.

Hiruzen was the only Hokage who Naruto really liked. The first Hokage was to idealistic in Naruto's opinion. The second Hokage to harsh, militaristic, and stoic. Naruto still did not know how to feel about his father- the fourth Hokage-Minato Namikaze.

Five years ago, he hated and resented the man for sealing the Kyubi no Yoko (Nine tailed fox) inside of him. Back then he still viewed being a Jinchuriki as a curse but now he views it as the greatest thing that could ever happen to him.

Yet he was and is being treated like an outcast and the demon itself. It was kind of …funny. The people of Konohagakure no Sato accused the Uchiha Clan of manipulating the biju into attacking Konoha. Yet at the same time they hated the demon and by extension him. They did not hate the Uchiha's for "manipulating" the demon and making it attack Konoha. Some nearly all of Konoha's population hated Naruto for either containing the demon or believing him to be the demon itself. Mobs would gather in his younger birthdays to hunt "the fox" down. They called these events the fox hunts. Others resented the Uchiha believing them to be behind the Nine Tails attack.

Some even hated both. Yes, humans could be difficult and funny creatures. Many are blinded by hatred only moving forward in the chance of getting revenge. And then when they avenged themselves or someone else, they feel more emptier than ever. Humans could be funny creatures.

"I wonder what they would think about me if they knew that I am Madara Uchiha's grandson, the heir of Uzu no Kuni (Village Hidden in the Whirlpools) and the son of their precious Yondaime (Fourth) Hokage. " mused Naruto in thought as he watched the empty sky.

Many believed that Madara Uchiha had no descendants but that was a lie. Madara Uchiha had a daughter with an Uzumaki woman known as the first Uzukage. But that was after he left the village and supposedly died in his legendary battle with the first Hokage and friend Hashirama Senju at the valley of the end. He loved Akane Uzumaki above all else. But Senju and Uzumaki had close ties. Senju and Uzumaki often married one another to keep up the good relationship the clans had to each other.

Akane's father was a Senju while her mother was an Uzumaki and as such her name was Akane Uzumaki Senju. But Uzu no Kuni fell during the second shinobi world war due to a traitor to Uzu no Kuni who leaked Uzu no Kunis defensive systems and many other of their village secrets.

Uzu no Kuni had many enemies. There was an old saying that said "an Uzumaki is like a sleeping dragon and you better not wake him. For if you do, he will utterly destroy you." And that saying was indeed true. The Uzumaki were peaceful beings and as such did not participate in the first Shinobi World War. Many feared their power in Fuinjutsu. That and their Adamantine chains which were able to even hold Biju's down. Biju's were the villages most secret and destructive weapons. Kumogakure no Sato especially made weapons out of their Jinchuriki. Madara Uchiha and Hashirama Senju were able to control a Biju. But at the time of the second shinobi world War, they were both believed to be already dead.

Fuinjutsu made the Uzumaki what they were -powerful and feared. Almost every enemy nation of Uzu no Kuni feared the Uzumaki. Or more precisely their ability to make a Jinchuriki in battle useless either through Fuinjutsu or Adamantine chains. With Uzu no Kuni's village secrets being leaked Iwa, Kumo and Kirigakure all saw their chance to finally get rid of the Uzumaki.

The three villages attacked Uzu no Kuni in a coordinated effort. Iwa, Kumo and Kiri in their attack on Uzu no Kuni had 120,000 soldiers combined while Uzu no Kuni all together had roughly 50,000. The three villages planned to have the Uzumaki clan slaughtered in 24 hours before they marched to Sunagakure and Konohagakure. But it came differently. In large parts thanks to a dead believed Uchiha Madara.

The Uzumaki clan children were sent away to Konoha before the attack on Uzu no Kuni happened. The Uzumaki Clan knew that after the attack Uzu no Kuni would be no more. But they wanted to give their children as much time as possible to escape. Among the children was Madara's and Akane's child- Uzumaki Kushina. Akane placed a seal on her so that she could never awaken the Sharingan. This was done so that she when she ended up in Konoha the Uchiha Clan would not come after her. The Uchiha Clan was always overprotective of their visual powers. They would not allow anyone born outside the clan to wield it. They would even go as far as to seek Kushina's death if that meant keeping the Sharingan in the clan. Plus, there were policies inside the Uchiha Clan that only allowed Uchiha to marry and conceive children with another Uchiha. This was the reason Madara had to leave Konoha and fake his death in the first place. Akane was half Senju. Although Uchiha and Senju both signed a peace treaty there was and always will be bad blood between the two clans. The first Hokage tried to marry an Uchiha many times but the Uchiha Clan elders never allowed it to happen. So Hashirama settled for Mito Uzumaki as his wife to guarantee widely good relationships with the Uzumaki Clan. Another reason for Madara to leave. Should he have had a child with Akane who was half Senju the whole Uchiha and Senju Clan would want that child dead. They would not stop until that child was dead. Uchiha and Senju may have signed a peace treaty but a child of both clans would not be allowed. Not after both clans led a war against each other for centuries. The child would have been seen as a monstrosity. They would mercilessly hunt the child down. Madara and Akane did not want her daughter to grow up in a place like that. Which parents would? So, when Madara fell in love with Akane and wanted to have children someday Madara left Konoha and faked his own death.

Madara was many things but he was most proud to say that he was a family man. He would give up everything he had in Konoha to keep his child safe.

But only few children arrived at Konohagakure no Sato. The entirety of Uzu no Kunis children were all in one group. Sadly, this group was ambushed. Only a quarter of the Uzumaki children made it to Konohagakure no Sato. But the Uzumaki clan was dead. Many of Uzu no Kunis children were just that children. Many along Kushina were even infants. But they had no one left to teach them.

The Uzumaki clan was known and feared because of their power in Fuinjutsu and their Adamantine chains. But even a shinobi of the noblest lineage needs someone who teaches them, someone who he can learn from. And the survivors of the Uzumaki clan in Konohagakure did not have that. The children of Uzu no Kuni left Uzu no Kuni in a hurry. Therefore, they only took what they absolutely needed -primarily water and food. And without parents to learn from the survivors of the massacre in Uzu no Kuni never measured up to their ancestors' powers in Fuinjutsu.

The third Hokage entrusted them with Konoha's barrier system. They served in a tower near the outskirts of the village. They were entrusted with all of Konoha's knowledge in Fuinjutsu. But that does not change the fact that it paled in comparison to the Uzumaki clan's knowledge in Fuinjutsu. Nonetheless they still have even to this day is an important in the village. The Survivors of Uzu no Kuni are in charge of maintaining the detection barrier of Konoha. This barrier as you can already guess detects foreigners to the village the second, they enter Konoha. Once they entered Konoha an Anbu usually follows them to make sure of the fact that they are not spying on Konohagakure no Sato and that they are just visiting Konoha.

The Uzumaki Clan fought three days against Iwa, Kumo and Kiri to ensure that their children would get far away from the enemies. And they did succeed. If they did not their enemies would have slaughtered their children. But Uzu no Kuni practically won the second shinobi world war for Konohagakure no Sato. It was supposed to be a massacre. And it was. The attack on Uzu no Kuni demanded many casualties but not just from the Uzumaki clan but also from Iwa, Kumo and Kiri. The Uzumaki clan with its 50,000 soldiers may have perished in the attack but so did the 120,000 soldiers from Kumo, Kiri and Iwa. Among these 120,000 soldiers were the two-tails, three-tails, four tails, five tails Jinchuriki, the second Tschukikage and first Mizukage.

But Iwa, Kumo and Kiri had underestimated. The power of the Uzumaki clan and Madara Uchiha. Akane Uzumaki Senju killed the three tails and four tails Jinchuriki. In her dying breath she undid the sealing Jutsu of the five tails, unleashing him to wreak havoc once again.

Akane died with Madara by her side. This was one of the few times Madara actually cried. Growing in a period were the Uchiha constantly fought with the Senju, a period in which he lost all of his brothers made Madara somewhat cynical and apathetic towards anything. The only times the man cried was at each loss of his brothers, the day he married his wife and the day he saw his two-month year old daughter leave hoping that he could give her enough time to escape the enemies' troops clutches.

In her dying words Akane said that she loved him and that he would better make sure that he would give their daughter enough time to escape.

And Madara did. As soon as his wife gave his dying breath, he closed her eye lids. Standing up he wiped the tears away from his face. Madara as first action took control of the five tails using Iwa's 'prized weapon' against themselves.

At the end of the battle Madara was lying on the ground next to the dead Nibi Jinchuriki to the secondTsuchikage and the first Mizukage. Madara barely won the battle but he did. There were no survivors among Iwa's, Kumo's and Kiri's troops. Over the years and due to no war going on Madara's shinobi skills somewhat dulled. Only a handful of Uzumaki and Madara survived the attack on Uzu no Kuni.

They all went to Konoha hoping to reunite with their children. But Madara could not. At the time he arrived in Konoha his daughter had already been made a Jinchuriki. The relatively young third Hokage told Madara who used a henge so the Hokage would not discover that he was Madara Uchiha that his daughter was dead. A Jinchuriki must always be loyal to their country first not their family. So, when a man arrived in Konoha claiming to be her father he told him that his daughter was dead. This way Kushina would grow up with the Leaf's ideology implanted in her mind.

Kushina was chosen to be the nine tails Jinchuriki because of who her mother was. Akane's life force was high even for an Uzumaki. And her Adamantine chains were especially strong even for Uzumaki. This was largely due to the fact that Akane's father was an Senju and her mother an Uzumaki. The Uzumaki were cousins of the Senju and whenever one of both clans had a child higher life force and stronger than usual Uzumaki Adamantine chains were the result. The Adamantine chains between an Uzumaki and Senju born child were almost always six times as strong as these of an Uzumaki whose parents were both Uzumaki's.

This made Kushina the perfect candidate to be the Jinchuriki. Even if the Leaf never made weapons out of their Jinchuriki's there may come a time when they would be forced to. Jinchuriki's were meant to cause destruction on enemy lines for their home village. They were created with the pure attention to cause destruction. Although Madara at the time did not knew that his daughter was still alive he still stayed in Konoha to live out the rest of his life as a civilian. He never wanted to see a battlefield again. Never lose someone he loved again. But when the funeral service after the Kyubi attack was held and all of Konoha citizens was ordered to attend the service, and he saw a picture of a 30-year-old Kushina next to Minato he immediately realized that the Sandaime had lied to him. Madara learned one thing that day and that was never to trust anyone but himself ever again. Thanks to the Sandaime his trust in humanity was completely shattered.

The days after the Kyubi attack many people were heartbroken. Madara was one of them. His daughter had not been dead like the Sandaime said she was. The daughter he sent away to Konoha for safety. The child that he had last held when she was two-months old. And he had not been there for here. It was a soccer punch to Madara's face.

The official report the Sandaime gave the populace was that Namikaze Minato, Yondaime Hokage, and his wife and child had passed away in the Kyubi's rampage. But this time Madara did not blindly believe the official report. He searched five years but after five long years he finally got to know his grandson's name.

Naruto Uzumaki - Jinchuriki of the Kyubi no Yoko- son of Uzumaki Kushina and Namikaze Minato, Yondaime Hokage- grandson of Uzumaki Senju Akane and Uchiha Madara.

After he found out that his grandson was still alive, he confronted him, trained him, raised him, took care of him told him about his family and heritage . He was not a grandfather figure to Naruto he was his father figure. He (Madara) figured that if he could not be a father to Kushina, he would at least be a father figure towards his grandson.

Everyone in Naruto's family has made the world what it is today. Madara with the founding of Konoha, Akane with Uzu no Kuni, Minato with slaughtering 1000 of Iwa's shinobis, Kushina with being a Jinchuriki. But one thing is certain Naruto will be no exception in his family he will shape the world with his own hands- one way or another.

Chapter one done! Do not worry Naruto will not be overpowered in this story. I plan on let him awaken the Rinnegan in the last chapters of this fanfiction. In the following chapters I will also add flashbacks to Naruto's time with Madara. Until than Riyu out. Oh, I will upload whenever I feel like it. I am from Germany so forgive me my bad spelling and grammar.
