Prologue: The Mask is formed

"So, how is the plan going, master?" A man in a black kimono with white hair and an oddly wide grin plastered on his face.

"Good, but there are small difficulties." A another man in a black kimono with brown hair and glasses answered.

"What type of difficulties?" the first man asked again his grin never leaving his face once.

"The experiment that the, now former, taicho of squad 12, Kisuke Urahara disappeared with him and the, also now former, taicho of squad 2, Yoruichi. Their location is unknown at this moment," the second man said, "but I was able to gain two new followers to our cause."

"Who might they be, if you don't mind me asking?" the first man intrigued by the news of two new members to his master's cause.

"The first is the newly appointed taicho of the ninth division, Kaname Tosen. The second one is a ninja in the five elemental countries that just recently turned traitor on his village. He is one of the 'Legendary Three' or Sannin. Orochimaru, the Snake Sannin." the second man replied.

"A ryoka? Is that wise, Aizen-sama?" the first man asked worried about all this.

"Do not worry, Gin. He is a worthy ally in our fight. All he asks is help in becoming immortal." Aizen chuckled at his ex-fukutaicho's worried face.

Unknown to the two, a teenage girl with long red hair, fox ears, and nine red tails was listening in on the entire conversation. 'I must let Otou-san and Yamamoto-sama know of this at once.' she thought as she readied herself to head back home only to realize she can't move.

"What the hell? I can't move," she murmured to herself as she looks to see a boa constrictor had her in its clutches.

"Kukuku… It seems you had an intruder, Aizen-sama." A pale-faced man said as the door opened revealing the spy to the others.

"It seems so and I do believe it is the eldest daughter of the Fox lord, Kyuubi no Yoko." Aizen replied.

"You won't get away with this, Aizen-teme. When my tou-san sees that I have not returned, he will come looking and you will get caught." Kyuubi growled as she tried again to get out of her bindings.

"I don't know about that since you will be going on a rampage on the one village that you love." Orochimaru chuckled as he prepared an extremely powerful Genjutsu and Aizen prepared the instant transportation for as soon as Orochimaru finished the jutsu.

"You can't do this! NO!" Kyuubi screamed as Orochimaru was finishing the hand seals.

"Oh, yeah. Say hello to Minato and his wife for me. Forbidden Art: Gekido Genkaku no Jutsu!" Orochimaru said as he performed the final hand seal.

As Kyuubi's eye's clouded over, a portal opened up sending her 10 miles away in the direct path of Konohagakure no Sato in her full demon beast form.

The Night of the Attack

"Just one more push and it will be all over, Kushina-chan!" the blonde doctor said, as she got ready to take the baby out.

"AHHHHH!" Kushina screamed as she made the final push.

The room fell silent with only the sounds of fighting outside and a baby's cry. "Congratulations, it's a boy!" the doctor said while holding the baby.

"Arigato, Tsunade-hime. It means a lot that you came back to deliver mine and Minato's child." Kushina said in her weakened state.

"What type of friend would I be to ignore a request like delivering their baby?" Tsunade retorted and then asked, "So, this boy is going to be used to seal the Kyuubi no Kitsune in, huh?"

"Yes, but I wish my husband would rethink the "tell the village" deal. We all know that the only way anyone will accept him as a hero is by announcing he is his son." Kushina replied as she cradled the newborn blonde baby.

"I will go ahead and call them in." Tsunade said as she exited the room to wash up and call in the others. As the door closed behind her, there was one thought going through her head, 'That boy will be one of the greatest heroes this world has ever seen.'

Ten minutes had passed before the door opened again. Three men and two teens entered the room. They were Jiraiya, the Gama Sannin, Sarutobi Hiruzen, the Sandaime Hokage, Hatake Kakashi, Uzumaki Rin, and her husband, Namikaze Minato, the Yondaime Hokage.

"Hey, Kushina-chan. How you feeling?" Minato asked as he sat next to her and looked at the baby she was holding with sadden eyes.

"I don't know if I should feel happy or sad right now. I am happy that he was born, but I am also sadden that he was born today of all days." Kushina answered as she looks out the window facing towards the direction Kyuubi was coming from.

"I know, I just wish there was another way to beat Kyuubi without sealing her into him." Minato sighed sadly as he looks into the baby's, now open, blue eyes.

'Minato-kun/sensei,' were the sadden thoughts of the crowd as they watched Minato take the baby in his arms, stood and disappeared in a yellow flash back to the Hokage Tower to prepare his son for the sealing. After he left, Kushina finally broke down and cried thinking about what would happen to her son and husband.

(Three days after Kyuubi's sealing – Main Council Room)

It had been three days exactly since Kyuubi's sealing into the baby. The death toll had finally been counted and damage was reviewed. Along with this, the civilian council heads had been asking for the death of the 'demon spawn', as they called him, and Danzo had been asking for the baby to be given to him to train.

'Fat chance in hell, baka.' The reinstated Sandaime Hokage thought, 'The day I do as you ask is the day that Orochimaru comes up to me and tells me to kill him.'

"… That's why he should join my 'Ne' ANBU. He would be the perfect weapon for Konoha." Danzo said, smirking as the High Elders, Koharu and Homura, the Haruno Head, Haruno Yasha, and a few other civilian heads nodded their heads in agreement.

"I am not going to give you the boy, Danzo. He is going to be raised by his mother and if he wants to become a shinobi of Konoha, then he will. So shut your goddamn mouth before Haishi does it for you." Hiruzen growled at the old warhawk. Which this was true, Haishi looked like he was going to rip Danzo a new one, since he knew whom the baby's parents were.

"That demon has no mother!" Yasha screamed, which caused everyone to cover his or her ears from the pink-haired banshee's screech.

"Yes, he does and she is the one taking over the empty seat on the council." Hiruzen replied, after recovering from the screeching ring in his ears.

"If you don't mind me asking Sandaime-sama, but isn't the only seat left the Namikaze clan's? Also, if I remember correctly, Yondaime-sama never married anyone." Shikaku asked lazily with half-lidded eyes staring confused at the Hokage, who was chuckling.

"That is where you are wrong. Minato did in fact marry. It was one month before he became the Yondaime Hokage. Actually, three people here, excluding me, had witnessed this event." Hiruzen smirked as he looked at Danzo's ever-growing scowl.

"And who would be this wife of the Yondaime, Sarutobi?" Danzo glared at his rival, only to turn towards the opening doors of the council room.

There at the doors stood Namikaze-Uzumaki Kushina hold a bundle in her arms with Kakashi and Rin standing to either side of her. Staring right at Danzo, she replied, "That would be me. Got a problem with that, you old hawk?"

This really infuriated Danzo as he glared at Kushina and yelled, "You will show respect, Uzumaki bitch"

"Respect is earned, not given, you old goat. So you show respect to Kushina-onee-sama or you won't get any back." Rin growled back.

"Alright, that is enough. As of right now, I am setting a law on the truth of the Kyuubi's defeat. None of the younger generations, who don't already know about what happened, are allowed to know the truth. Anyone who reveals this, other then Kushina, Naruto, when he learns of this, and myself will be charged with treason and be executed. Is that clear?" Sandaime bellowed as he glared at the council, or more specifically Danzo and the suspiciously silent Uchiha Fugaku.

After a round of nods, the council was dismissed.

After the meeting adjourned, Kushina (and Naruto), Hiruzen, Haishi, Tsunade, and Jiraiya left to talk in private about things to come in the Hokage's office.

(Hokage's Office – 10 minutes later)

After everyone took a seat, Haishi decided to ask the question that was on his mind since the meeting earlier had started, "Hokage-sama, do you plan on continuing what Minato had planed."

"Ah, yes. The new ANBU division. We will have to push that back for a while, at least until Naruto-kun begins his training in the Shinigami and Shinobi arts. Until then, Haishi, you need to focus on your wife. From what I heard she is a little over two months from giving birth to your first child." Hiruzen replied as Haishi nodded understandingly.

"Well until Naruto graduates from the academy, I can't teach him anything. So I will be out of Konoha for next 13 years, except for reports, missions, and to just checking up on everyone." Jiraiya said, even though he was thinking something differently, 'Soon I will have my next book finished, and start my 'research' for my next book. Hehehe.'

"I will be leaving Konoha soon to get some fresh air and try getting over my fear after what happened to Dan. Shizune will be coming with me and I don't know how long I will be gone." Tsunade frowned.

"I understand. This is a tragic time and we need you at your best. You, Jiraiya, with your spy network and you, Tsunade, as one of our best medics. With both Kushina and Hitomi (Haishi's wife) out of active duty, we are going to be struggling but we will prevail in this challenge." Hiruzen replied.

"I have been meaning to ask, what name did Minato-kun come up with for the new division?" Kushina asked.

"Truthfully, he just called it 'The Fourteenth Division'. I think he wanted it to be simple, instead of some crazy name. He also said it was to act as a branch of Soul Society's Gotei 13. Anyway, I suggest that we all turn in for the night." He said as the others stood end headed out.

(8 years later – Namikaze Mansion – Training Grounds)

It had been eight years since the Kyuubi's defeat. Everything started to return to the way it used to be. The only big problem was the 75 percent that saw Naruto as Kyuubi, instead of its container. There had been attacks, but none got any further then five steps from the main building. The attackers only saw one thing before they 'disappeared'. A flash of red.

When Naruto turned four, he was immediately started with his training. Kushina had taught him everything he would learn in the shinobi academy in the first six months and all the bookwork of the shinigami academy in the second six months.

When Naruto turned five, Kushina started his physical and chakra control training, along with beginner Hado and Bakudo spells. During this time, Jiraiya had returned for the first time in five years. Of course he was not alone. On his way back with some info on a new organization popping up, he ran into three kids around five or six years old. After learning that they were orphans from a recent battle between the borders of Kusa no Kuni and Tsuchi no Kuni, he offered them a asylum at Konoha, or more specifically the Namikaze Mansion.

When Jiraiya told her about this, she agreed right away and started training them along side her son. When Naruto turned six, they had started to increase the training and started learning how to fight with a sword.

Now, after two years later, four kids stood in front of her. The first on the far left stood at 3'11", had sapphire blue hair going down to his shoulders, and red eyes, that if you didn't know any better, looked like the Uchiha's Sharingan. He wore a dark blue shirt with black shinobi-issued pants. His Zanpakutō strapped to his left side, kunai holster on his right thigh, and ninja pouch on his right backside. His name was Shana Ryuu.

The next one stood at 3'09", had blood red hair going down just below her shoulders in a ponytail, and dark blue eyes. She wore a light red blouse with black shinobi-issued pants and a short white skirt overtop of it. Her equipment setup is the same as Ryuu except that her ninja pouch was bigger, indicating that she was a medic nin. Her name was Lockhart Anita.

The third person stood at 3'07", had snow white hair that reached mid-back, and light green eyes. She wore a black blouse with blue shinobi-issued pants. Her equipment was the same as the others except her Zanpakutō was set behind her back, the hilt poking out over her left shoulder. Her name was Yuki Aiya.

The last one on the far right stood 3'11", had spiky blond hair, and crystal blue eyes. He, at the time, was wearing a neon orange jumpsuit. His equipment was the same as the others except he did not have his Zanpakutō strapped to him but sealed away in a scroll for safekeeping. His name was Namikaze-Uzumaki Naruto.

Of course, she knew the reason behind him being dressed like this instead of his true clothing. Just one month ago, the Uchiha clan massacre happened leaving only two survivors. The first one was Uchiha Itachi, the cause of the massacre. The second one was Uchiha Sasuke, Itachi's little brother. The Sandaime Hokage wanted someone to keep an eye on him that he could trust. The only problem was there were only two people he could trust with this mission and one wasn't a shinobi yet. The other was always busy with missions. So he decided on someone who could keep an eye on him until the final year at the academy, where a trusted friend of the Namikaze clan could help more.

Sighing from just thinking that her son would have to make an idiot of himself, she scanned over them one more time. "Okay, Ryuu, Anita, Aiya. You have probably noticed that Naruto is dressed differently today." They nodded, of course you could see Anita's left eyebrow twitched slightly. "This is because he will be going to the Shinobi academy for a surveillance mission. He will be watching the "last" Uchiha to make sure he doesn't do anything. While doing so, he must put up a mask of a hyperactive idiot. So, you four won't be together for the next five years." She paused here, due to the whines of the four kids in front of her. This made her laugh a little. "With that said, good luck, Naruto. The next time we see each other will be after you and the Uchiha graduate." With that said, Kushina knelled down and hugged Naruto for the last time in the next five years.

Naruto returned the hug and after that was done and the goodbyes were exchanged, Naruto left the compound and head towards the academy.

(Konoha Ninja Academy – Room 205)

The classroom was filled with kids, 7 of which were the clan heirs. They were all talking, playing, reading, or, in Shikamaru's case, sleeping. This was the scene that the Chunin instructor came into.

After settling the class down, the Chunin instructor began to speak, "Ohaiyo, class. Today, we will have a new student joining us. Please give him a warm welcome." Of course, you could tell the hatred in the instructor's voice.

Just then, the door flew open and in slid our orange jumpsuit hero. Pointing towards the class, he shouted, "The name's Uzumaki Naruto and I am going to be the next Hokage!" Ending with a fox-like grin. Thus was the birth of the mask of Naruto.

A/N: The prologue of the revision of my story is complete. I have introduced three OC's in this that will have rolls in the future. They will return with Kushina in the second chapter. This will be much different than version 1.0 in storyline. But ideas from the first version will still be apart of this but further in the story. Hope you liked it. Read and Review!

Poll Alert: Poll one is closed and Poll 2 opens. I have decided to automatically add Yugito, Fem. Nibi no Nekomata, and the female OC Yuki Aiya to the Harem. Poll switch will happen at the beginning of the new year so watch out for it. And this poll will continue until after the Sand/Sound invasion, so you have a long time to vote readers. So, HAPPY NEW YEARS!

Forbidden Art: Gekido Genkaku no Jutsu (Forbidden Art: Rage Illusion Jutsu): As the name says, it is a forbidden S-rank Genjutsu. The victim of this jutsu goes into a rage induced rampage on anything it sees. Can only be cancelled if the one who performed the jutsu is killed or a certain seal is put on the victim. (In Kyuubi's case, the seal is put on Naruto.)
