Naruto: Secrets Revealed This work represents fan speculation of the Naruto Universes Hidden History Strictly for entertainment purposes only. So dont sue me. No copyright infringement intended. Premise Pains Rinnegan Hold the Hidden Truth behind the Secrets in the Naruto Universe To understand the secret history of the Naruto Universe we must first learn about the Sage of the Six Paths. The Sage of the Six Paths (, Rikud Sennin) also known as the Great Sage was a legendary person who founded the arts of ninjutsu and started the shinobi world. He defeated the TenTailed Beast and sealed it within him thus becoming the first jinchriki. According to Jiraiya, the Sage was a priest who appeared long ago in an age of endless war. He was the first to explain the truth about chakra and tried to use his power and wisdom to lead the world to peace instead of war. The Sage travelled throughout the world, spreading his ideas and religion, the Shinobi Sect ( , Ninsh), which eventually came to be known as ninjutsu. His great deeds and true desire to bring peace to the war-torn world led him to become widely known as the Saviour of this World (, Kono Yo no Kyseishu). According to Madara Uchiha, centuries before the beginning of the main storyline, the Sage defeated the most powerful demon in the shinobi world, the Ten-Tailed Beast. In order to protect the world from the Ten-Tails, the Sage developed an unknown technique to seal the beast within himself, allowing him to harness and control its terrifying power, and making himself the first jinchriki. Although he had successfully sealed the Ten-Tails,~1~

its power was so great that the seal would break after the Great Sage's death. Aware of this, the Great Sage used Izanagi to divide the Ten-Tails' chakra into nine parts, which would become known as the tailed beasts. He then used Chibaku Tensei to seal the TenTails' body inside a gigantic stone prison in the sky, thus creating the moon. The Sage would leave behind a tablet for his descendants, which details his history with the Ten-Tails. Only those who possess the Rinnegan can fully decipher what is written on the tablet, while a person with a different djutsu can still partially interpret the information. The Sage's ultimate wish to establish peace throughout the world was a goal that could never be achieved within his lifetime alone. Knowing that his end was approaching, the Sage entrusted his strength, dream, and legacy to his two sons. The older son, who inherited the Great Sage's "eyes" (his powerful chakra and spiritual energy), believed that power was the true key to peace. The younger son, who inherited the Sage's "body" (his powerful will and physical energy), believed that love was the true key to peace. On his deathbed, the Sage chose his younger son to be his successor. Overcome by bitterness and envy, the older son attacked the younger, beginning a war between them. A feud that would continue down the ages through their descendants: the Senju clan and the Uchiha clan. The Rinnegan would later resurface, manifesting itself in its perfected form in Nagato, a descendant of the Uzumaki clan who are distant relatives of the Senju, descendants of The Great Sage. Jiraiya believed that the Great Sage could have somehow been "reborn" as Nagato in the present era. Nagato himself, however, admitted that his own power paled in comparison to that of the Sage. Still others, such as Kakashi Hatake, believed that the Great Sage is merely a myth, and that the Rinnegan is merely a mutation. However, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's acknowledgment of the Great Sage (and the tailed beasts' apparent status as the only survivors from the Great Sage's lifetime), lends credibility to his existence.

Following the death of the Sage of the Six Paths and the subsequent feud between the brothers, the tablet was lost to antiquity. So fierce were the battles between the two brothers and their supporters that entire villages would be destroyed in less than a day. Eventually, the war became one of attrition where every shinobi counted. Each side fearing the worst from the other used blood rites (or blood curses) to gain strength. These dark rites granted their practitioners awesome jutsus with overwhelming potential for destruction. So feared were these jutsus that most became taboo after the war ended. As with the tablet, the knowledge to create these techniques died with the original users. Over the centuries, having inherited the curse blood from their forebears, only the blood descendants of the original practitioners are able to utilize these cursed techniques. In time most of these cursed techniques were lost as their users and descendants died out. The remnants of these techniques are what have become known in the modern age as the Kekkei Genkai or Bloodline Limits. Saddened by the devastation and the suffering of the people, the second brother devised a strategy to end the war. By sacrificing the souls of his five most willing and loyal generals, the second son created the Dead Demon Consuming Seal and enchanted a special kunai. With this weapon he would kill his brother and surrender his life in the process a payment for activating the seal. On the last day of the final battle, the second brother with a 50,000 strong shinobi force battled into the depths of the enemy camp, and in single combat plunged the enchanted kunai into his brothers heart. The initial blast on triggering the Dead Demon Consuming Seal decimated four-fifths of the elder brothers clan and forced an end to the long war. However, the second brother too weakened by his injuries was unable to complete the seal. Instead of being completely sealed the tremendous power of the Rinnegan was shattered. The power of the Rinnegan would be significantly diminished into what would become known as the lesser Byakugan and the greater Sharingan. By the time the war

ended close to 5 million shinobi and 60 times as many civilians had perished. Interestingly, the Demon Consuming Seal used by the Third and Fourth Hokages, given some similarities to historical accounts of the second sons sealing technique, adopted the name from the original technique. However, the latter sealing technique is actually a separate derivation created by the Uzumaki Clan utilizing some of the finjutsu elements from the original jutsu. Thus, the latter sealing technique has no destructive force but rather retains the sealing power of the source jutsu. Another major difference between the jutsus is the use of human sacrifices. The ultimate form of the Demon Consuming Seal requires, in addition to the summoner, five additional human sacrifices each possessing one of the five elementary chakra nature transformations: earth, wind, fire, water and lightening, to activate a curse that would bind the descendants of the target in perpetual submission to the blood descendants of the user. Although the specific mechanics of the curse remains lost to history, the curse was thought to function not unlike the curse used by the main branch of the Hyga clan in modern times, and may actually be the origin of the Hyga technique. However, as the original curse bound the spirit and not the body there is no outward curse mark. After the battle, those who would one day become the Hyga clan, consumed with sadness and regret and being met by kindness and a willingness to forgive, by the second brothers clan, realized their mistake and accepted the second brother and his clan as the rightful heir to the Great Sage. This acceptance of the second brothers claim as heir by the early Byakugan users led to a violent split with those who would become Sharingan users who branded them as cowards, and capitulators unfit of their heritage. Eventually the Byakugan users were cast out and taken in by the second brothers clan. In the ensuing years, the Uchiha, Senju and Hyga clans were formed. And the Hyga clan in time became founding members of the Leaf Village.~4~

Throughout the years, there have been those born of the Uchiha and Hyga clans with eyes resembling the famed Rinnegan. However, these Rinnegans were incomplete and held a miniscule fraction of the Rinnegans original power. In addition, the eyes bore like resemblance to the Rinnegan and thus were thought of by the respective clans as a mutation of the more common Sharingan and Byakugan. Further supporting this false premise was the fact that these individuals lives were unnaturally short never living beyond their eleventh year of life. Unknown to anyone, save for a few Clan Elders of the early Senju, these individuals died as a result of the Dead Demon Consuming Seal that was casted those many decades ago. For a time there was peace. Highly regarded for their powerful jutsu the influence of the Senju and Uchiha forebears over time steadily grew. But the overly aggressive actions of the Uchiha ancestors were keep in constant check by the early Senju using the mystical curse; thus maintain stability between the clans. The early Senju clan having grown arrogant and abusive often splintered due to infighting. Over time, not only the Uchiha but the people grew resentful of the Senjus dominance. As the Great Sage had predicted; upon his death the prison containing the Ten-Tailed Beast begun to weaken. In time, the Ten-Tailed Beast was able to make contact, in spirit form, with a small band of Uchiha who resented being bound by the mystical curse, and became convinced of the divinity of the Ten-Tailed Beast. The Ten-Tailed Beast made a pact with these men that in return for their eternal loyalty the bond of servitude would be lifted. These men seizing on the chance for vengeance against the early Senju, agreed to the Ten-Tailed Beast terms, taking within each of their bodies a small portion of the Ten-Tails spirit which enhanced their chakra levels, but bound their souls for all time to the Ten-Tails demon. One of these men was Huwei, b
