Fifty years after the death of Naruto Uzumaki the sixth Hokage, the Shinobi Alliance began to slowly break down and in it's shadow a organization formed. As peace slowly faded, paranoia spread throughout each nation and the Uchiha Clan once again found themselves the victims of oppression. However some among the slowly repopulating clan did not stand for it, and a revolt ensured. The Revolt was put down by the Hidden Leaf however it was revealed the ring leader had managed to survive, and escape into the wild. To prevent a panic the ring leader was reported dead to the public. The Revolt that occurred in Konoha began to create speculation among the other villages, could Konoha continue to lead the Shinobi Alliance after the death of Naruto? Barriers broke down further and in the years of tension that built up, a organization formed from the darkness. The Kuronohi was created and slowly it began to move unseen throughout the Shinobi World, infiltrating villages from lowly chunin to the village elder. They offered their services to nations as a protective force, a guardian angel, however this was far from the truth. Prison breaks from all over began to occur almost as if they were orchestrated. It had been almost apparent that other villages were responsible for the actions, almost as if to cause panic, attacks began on important structures, it was the end of peace. Now new leaders of the villages emerge and ideas of an alliance are thrown up in the air. What will become of the ninja system, will it be destroyed completely and chaos reign over the land of shinobi or will peace be restored?

No auto-hitting: This means that you can't automatically hit somebody. You have to always be rping as if the other character or opposing side always has the chance to dodge something. But this also means that you cannot dodge every hit. I mean...if someone throws a hundred kunai's at you by cloning themselves. Your not going to dodge them all...but you might be able to stop them all or at least dodge a few. Like seriously people, If we were like this in IRL...We'd be like...super sayan rpers XDD.
No god-modding or power-playing:
Alright, So this rule is pretty basic. God-modding is when you basically go around fighting thousands of people and destroying countless villages with an almighty character without taking a scratch...I don't want any of that, I mean...if you try and destroy an entire village on your own it's not going to happen. Your going to be caught after a short while and stopped by the hundreds of guards/people/or Shinobi in that village. Power-playing is when in a fight you don't fight it out properly. I mean...if your a genin and your fighting a squad of ANBU...there is no way your going to win or come out without quite a few wounds. So please...I ask you all, just fight fair and have fun! If you like long battles that is fine...draw them out and take pages. But fight fair! Believe it!
No banging her bing-bongs, Swashing her buckles or shivering her timbers. Cybering will not be allowed in this forum because it is not allowed on gaia. Mild romance is fine...but if it's starts to get detailed I will have to ask you to leave. Also the following will not be permitted either; No Waxing the Giraffe, No Cannonballing the Fiddle cove, No releasing the doves or bursting the clouds, No rocking the casbah. So...all in all. NO CYBERING! And for those of you who are dyslexic "!!!!GNIREBYC ON"
Follow the Gaia TOS:
Follow the Gaia Terms Of Service. They are the guidelines that will keep you from being banned! If you can't follow them...then you should not be on this website.
You may have as many characters as you want as long as you post with ALL OF THEM actively and keep them up to date and in the RP. If you cannot do that I will make you delete the inactive character immediately.
Title of Kage, Sannin or ANBU:
(Pm me with why you want to have that title.)This is basically so we don't end up with god-modders as Kage's, Too many Sannin, Or waaaaay too many ANBU. Not everybody can have a super special character, it is a privilege that has to be earned through active and good rping.
Try to write at the minimum, Two solid paragraph each time you post. I mean...if it's less than 1 paragraph every time I will be questioning your ability to roleplay in this rp. I understand writers block but if it happens for more than a few days straight...your outta here.
You are more than welcome to post OOC. Just make sure it doesn't get too out of hand and interfere with other peoples rping.
Death and/or killing of other characters: You can't die unless you're put in a position where you're forced to die or you agree to kill off you character. Let is also be know that being killed off has to be AGREED UPON before it happens. Now...this isn't to say if someone sinks you into the ground up to your knee's and hurls 100 kunai at you from every direction you can't use a replacement jutsu this is to say that if somebody traps you inside a sphere of water and freezes it...unless you can superheat your body. You're dead. Sorry...
But if your talking OOC and want to say "OMG" or "XDD" that is fine...but I do not want to see "O h3y dood how r u 2day?" That is just getting ridiculous.
Unless you are going to stick around, DO NOT submit a profile.
If you are only going to post twice and then never do so again...don't even bother joining. If you do this, You will be blocked and never allowed in here again. Also we like frequent rpers, if you don't post for more than three days you will be removed unless given notice.
Special Status Characters:
Now I will be allowing Uchiha however unless they are Sasuke or Obito's children then you can't have them. However I will make an exception if somehow your character was cultivated by the cells of one of the past Uchiha but you are going to have to show me an RP Sample of your work to know that your not going to god mod with that character. Also I will allow Eternal Mangekyou and Rinnegans only if you can describe to me how they got them again its going to only be given out to those with exceptional RP skills and those that are trustworthy. There will still be a limit on how many people can have it though left up to the discretion of me.
Ever since the death of Naruto Uzumaki and the attack of the nine tailed fox, the village had been severely weakened yet again. Many casualties were killed during that attack and it seemed that it had been planned in a way. Then again it could have been Shuichi just worrying too much. Needless to say, it had been years since that attack on the village and the village had been rebuilt just like it always had been. No matter how many times the enemy would attack and destroy their village it wouldn't break the will of fire.
Everyone in the village had a duty to keep that flame alive, and it was his duty to protect the very will of everyone that carried that flame. The nine tailed fox was placed in another jinchuriki, and it had been a mutual agreement between the two of them it seemed. Kurama was still slightly difficult but due to the person that he was sealed into, he wasn't as difficult as when he was first sealed into Naruto. Naruto had definitely planted the seed of making Kurama a lot less bitter. As the Hokage looked over his paperwork he noticed a request that had come from the office of the Mizukage himself.
The note was asking for an alliance between both Konohagakure and also the Kirigakure. Reading over it carefully, the Hokage noted the location and slowly placed the letter down. It seemed odd that the Kirigakure had once again wanted to form an alliance with them even after all of the strains placed on the shinobi system and the changes of Kages all across the world. While Konoha andSunagakure had remained in an alliance after such a strong bond among the two villages, it gave Shuichi a reason to question the motives of the Mizukage being that the two villages didn't like each other.
The Sunagakure and Kirigakure had been against each other and if Kirigakure were to get in an alliance with Konoha that would mean the two would have to cooperate despite everything that they were doing to each other. However in the letter it didn't mention anything about Sunagakure. Sighing slightly, Shuichi signed the document saying that he would attend the meeting and sent it off. Knowing that it would reach the man in a day or two's time, the Hokage sat back and turned to his window to look out at the village.
The village had looked so peaceful, almost like the times during Naruto's reign, but it seemed that this peace might not last as long. He wouldn't allow for the peace to be disrupted though. Ifhe had to he would give his life for peace just like his sensei had. Most of the last generation had perished and now it was time for the new generation to step up and take the reigns of the world and create the peace that had once been in the shinobi world.
I x a m x k a z u m a x T e r u m i x ! x... . . .
The Mist around the village of Kirigakure lingered like always and the people of the village were busy living there lives. Things were calm and peaceful as always in the village thanks to no one messing with them. Mainly because the Hero of Kiri was still alive and kicking. And from the looks of it he wasn't going anywhere. Sitting in his chair Kazuma looked down at the huge amount paper work that filled his desk. It was truly a awful sight. No matter how much Kazuma did more and more paper work simply flowed into the office. Rubbing his eyes Kazuma looked beside him to see Samehada wrapped up in its bandages. Placing his hand on the skull tip of the blade Kazuma leaned back in his chair and let out a very small sigh. Rubbing his chin he began to wonder how he would be able to get all this work done with in time for that meeting he had requested to have with the Hokage. Peace was what Kazuma wanted now. he no longer wanted to fight between the villages. If that meant becoming friends with the village hidden in the sand then so be it. All of this fighting needed to stop. At least thats what Kazuma thought. He simply wanted his village to be left in peace. Tapping Samehada's skull Kazuma sighed and looked down at the blade as if asking what should he do. Silence filled the room and finally Kazuma turned back to his work and began to read through the papers that coated his desk. So much work and so little time. Grabbing a pen and getting to work Kazuma began to sign off on a few papers speed reading through most of them. They weren't that important. A few D and C class missions here and there. Nothing to rage on about. Once he was done Kazuma stood to his feet and stretched slightly before grabbing Samehada and strapping it to his back. He needed to get out of his office. Maybe walk around the village for a spell. Hell maybe even pay a surprise visit to the Konoha. Kazuma wanted this meeting over and done with so they could move on to other things. And at the moment time was moving to slow. Well it didn't matter. After walking around the village for a while Kazuma would come up with something to do.
Everything in the village hidden in the leaves was peaceful, a little too peaceful it seemed. Ever since the decline of the shinobi alliance many villages had tried to attack the village, and other bandits and such also tried the same. During these terrible times shinobi had to excel quicker and develop into fine shinobi in order to survive in this world. It was the survival of the fittest. While the Uchiha clan had made a come back somewhat, the village still didn't trust their clan and it had caused his father to abandon it and curse it.
This had caused the will of hate to surface once more and cause chaos to form in the shinobi world. Dieki was one of the children of Nakata Uchiha who had been the orchestrator of the attack on Konoha and also a prodigy of his very clan. Dieki was a chunnin who had been under the direct tutelage of the Hokage Shuichi Senju, a man that his clan very much hated due to their long strained past of hatred. Because of his assignment under the Hokage he wasn't trusted by his clan nor the village itself since he was the direct product of Nakata Uchiha.
Dieki lived a life of loneliness and he hated it. The only friends he held were those on his team, not that he would ever admit it. Dieki focused on becoming stronger, that was his only goal, that and to right the wrongs of the Uchiha clan and bring pride back to the clan. He was definitely a descendant of Sasuke Uchiha although he held a different goal of an avenger, no he wanted to become Hokage one day and erase the curse of hatred.
Standing on top of one of the more taller buildings of Konoha, Dieki just observed the village and waited for the appearance of his two teammates that he knew would be able to track him to the location that he currently was at. They were suppose to meet up to go on a mission, and he wondered where they were. Dieki hated those that weren't on time, but it had seemed he was a bit too early this time as well.
Being a prodigy of his clan and the son of Nakata Uchiha he had planned on proving himself to his clan and his village, as well as becoming a much stronger shinobi.

From a bark by the little puppy that sat on his chest, blue eyes opened up slowly. With a gentle rub, he smiled and let his free hand reach toward the warm lump and ruffle fur. “Mornin’ Chairo...” Pushing himself off the mattress, Chairomaru barked twice—indicating that it was time to hurry up. Today was going to be a busy day; it was the day that Keiichi would be graduating from the academy and receives his Leaf headband.
The smell of breakfast drifted into the bedroom and caused his small stomach to grumble. A light blush filled his cheeks and Chairomaru ‘wuffed’ softly. Pulling off his pajamas, he slid into a black tank and his red slacks, his signature outfit, just leaving behind the matching vest lying on his tousled sheets. “Keiichi? Are you up sweetheart?” He grinned, nodding his head toward the door and running out it. His mother, Ayame, was already almost eight months pregnant with his new sibling. Her green eyes sparkled at the sight of her son and she knelt down carefully to wrap her arms around him. “Did you sleep well? Breakfast is ready.”
“I did! Thank you, mama! How’s my baby sister?” Ayame laughed softly. Keiichi was the only person who thought she was having a girl. His mother kissed him gently on the head and led him into the kitchen.
“The baby is fine, darling. I’ve told you before; don’t get your hopes up. Your father and I don’t know if the baby will be a boy or a girl...” Waving his hand, Keiichi grinned for what seemed to be the millionth time in his lifetime.
“Well... if it does end up being a boy, can we name him Kiba?... After grandfather?” Her heart fell for her son, her eyes concealed the pain that she had to suppress for so long to be strong for her husband and her son, they were both close with the her father-in-law. Herself included; he had treated her as one of the family since Kurohagine and herself had met.
“I’ll talk to your father... Now,” Ayame then placed a plate full of fruits and a couple of pancakes in the center of the plate. Kissing him on the cheek, she poured some syrup over everything. “Eat up, you don’t want to be tired for when you get your headband, now do you?”
“No sirry! Thanks, mama! It smells delicious!” Fork in hand, Keiichi dug into the meal, grinning wildly as he glanced over toward his companion as he nibbled away at the kibble that rested in a bowl on the ground.

When he heard his name from his sensei, his eyes widened and he jumped up instantly, startling the little dog that was resting on his lap. Walking up and finally reaching the end of the aisle, he bowed respectfully and let his hands stretch out in front of him. Accepting the forehead protector, Keiichi attempted to hold in all of his excitement until he left the building.
The ceremony went on longer than he thought, but as soon as he stepped outside, he was jumping for joy. His grandmother, Alyson, met him at the academy to bring him home, letting his mother rest up since she was beginning to get tired. “Well, what do we have here? Is that a Konohagakure forehead protector?” Laughing, the young blonde nodded, grabbing onto his grandmothers hand and luring her back to his home.

A man in a mask would be in the shadows of the room watching the Mizukage as he moved about to leave the room to stretch and take a walk. Fujitaka's job was simple, protect the Mizukage and the village when it was in danger. He was a member of the famed seven swordsmen of the mist and he was one of the higher ranking members of the village due to that. He was prided with being the person being one of the strongest in the village beside the Mizukage. Fujitaka was also a ANBU however and apart of the Hunter nin of which he was tasked with finding and assassinating hidden ninja.
Walking out of the shadows of the room, the Mizukage would feel a presence suddenly from behind him. "You shouldn't abandon such important paperwork Kazuma-sama." He said in a rather soft graceful tone as he smirked under his mask. Oh the man wouldn't get away so easily from the dreadful paperwork that was a sin on all that took up the position of power and leadership in any village.
Sitting on the man's desk, the swordsmen just moved his hand up to his mask as he slightly removed it to reveal the side of his face that would have peered his dark red demon like eyes onto the man. "Besides its not safe out in the real world... you should be more careful." He said to the man knowing the man would notice his sense of humor.
I x a m x k a z u m a x T e r u m i x ! x... . . .
Hearing the voice of his personal guard Kazuma lowered his hands to his sighed before placing them behind his back. Ah yes Fujitaka. One of the only people who could bring a smile to the Mizukage's face. And thats just what he did with his words. He was right though. Even though Kazuma wanted to take a break he shouldn't abandon the paperwork. Though it was far from being important. A cat attacking a grown ninja who happens to be scared of cats was not important. Kazuma was not going to put a ban on cats just because a grown man was frightened by them. Turning to face Fujitaka Kazuma greeted him with a smile. Though Fujitaka had been there the whole time. The man was very good at his job. There had been times when people had tried to take the life of Kazuma. They didn't get far. Fujitaka always ended them fast and quick. Kazuma could not have asked for a better friend in the man. " Hm. I guess your right. But I don't think I will pass that ban on cats." With that said sat back down after placing Samehada back down on the ground. Looking through the papers on his desk Kazuma scanned through them but made sure to read them. Signing his name on the papers remaining Kazuma sighed before standing back up and grabbing Samehada strapping it to his back. Hearing Fujitaka speak again about the real world not being safe Kazuma chuckled before shaking his head. Yet another rare event. Kazuma never laughed yet alone chuckle. It simply went to show that Fujitaka held a spot in the Mizukage's heart. He thought of the man like a brother. " Not safe you say? With you watching my back i'm sure I will live to see the day when you become Mizukage. " With that said Kazuma grabbed his Kage hat and placed it on his head. " Come. I would talk to you about a few things. Konoha being one of them." With that Kazuma walked out of his office and began to head down the steps so he could head outside. Pushing his way through the doors of his mansion Kazuma looked back at Fujitaka and sighed softly. " As you know I have sent a note to the Hokage asking for an alliance. I wish to lead our village into a more positive direction and I think this will be a good way to start. What say you Fujitaka? Do you think the Hokage will accept?" Kazuma was not ashamed when it came to Kirigakure's bloody past. But he wanted to show the world that the village hidden in the mist had a brighter side to it as well.

Inoru yawned lightly as he awoke from the sound of his alarm clock. Today was an important day for him. It was the graduation ceremony. He quickly took a shower and got dressed in his usual outfit. Which consisted of a sleeveless green shirt and matching pants. He would also find out who his team would be consisted of. Inoru walked over to the mirror and brushed his hair for a bit. “There we go its perfect. “He told himself. Inoru made sure to take his newly acquired ninja pouch his parents gave him. It was custom made and held the Yamanaka clan emblem on it. He carried a smoke bomb, some kunai, and senbon. Inoru checked to see if he was forgetting anything then went downstairs to eat.
Inoru's father and mother were sitting at the table with pleased looks on their faces. " Congratulations. You better hurry the ceremony should be starting soon. " his father told him and he nodded in response picking up a rice ball from the table along with the bento his mom made for him. Inoru ate the rice ball on the way to the academy. When he arrived he waited patiently for his name to be called. Inoru then grabbed his headband and tied it around his neck loosely. Inoru asked who was going to be on his squad and they told him it would be the Inuzuka Keichi. He sped off before he could hear the other name. Inoru saw him with his grandmother and smiled as he bowed to both of them. “Hello. I am Inoru Yamanaka your teammate. In any case I will be the unofficial squad leader. I would have never expected us to be on the same squad. “He told him before looking at the male’s ninken.

It's almost unbearable isn't it...
I know that feeling,
I've been there,
In that dark and lonely place..
In the ninja world,
Those who break the rules are trash,
But those who abandon their comrades,
Are worse than trash..

Laughs could be heard throughout the forest. A rather short young female was walking down the path back to Konoha with her sensei and two teammates. Yes, this was Yumi, back in her chuunin years. Walking alongside Uchio and Aoi, Yumi held up a big smile. They had just succesfully finished their mission, their first B-rank mission ever. The mood amongst the young team was great and they were already talking about what mission they would get next. As they kept laughing, their Sensei suddenly mentioned for them to stop and be quiet. There was an obvious tension in the air and out of nowhere, at least six rogue shinobi showed up. Thinking that these were just lowly shinobi, the team went into attack mode, but they soon found out that these shinobi were serious. "Get out of here you three.. GO!" Their sensei didn't even stand a chance when trying to protect his team and the moment he was slain before the young Chuunin's eyes, the three started to run for their lives. Hearts racing and breathing erradictly, Uchio, Aoi and Yumi ran as fast as they could, hoping Konoha wouldn't be too far away. "Yumi, what do we do? If they catch us we're done for!""I know Aoi, calm down. We can make it, I know we can.. Help will come!" However, the rogue shinobi managed to catch up to them. The three had no other choice but to fight, but there was no chance of winning and help never came. Death was imminent and as Yumi turned around after having killed two nins with the help of Aoi, her eyes widened. "UCHIOOOOO!!" A high pitched scream followed, which would give anyone shivers. Tears flowed down Yumi's cheeks and in a moment of rage, she attacked the nin blindly. They were caught and Yumi was forced to the ground, her back and arm having deep gashes. The men held Aoi up in front of her, both knowing what was going to come. "Yumi.. Whatever you do.. Never give up. Promise me that. Show the world.. That you are worthy.. You're.. A great person.. Yumi.. Don't let anyone.. Tell you.. Any different.. We will always be.. In your heart. I believe in you.. Yumi-chan." Yumi would never forger that smile on his face, the scream and tears that followed. "No.. please.. Please! Dont kill him.. PLEASE!" Aoi's throat was cut clean, his body falling dead on the ground.
Yumi's eyes shot wide open as she gasped for air. Ugh, it was all just a dream.. A dream that had once been reality for her. It hunted her every single day and there was not a night without those scenes returning to her mind. Panting slightly, Yumi pushed herself up from the grass. She had been dozing off, or more so, sleeping.. Outside. Yeah, you might ask why she would be sleeping outside on the grass and not in her own warm bed. Well, Yumi had been training all night and lost track of the time completely. It was her day off yesterday, yet today she would have to go back to duty again, though lucky for her it was still early in the morning and she didn't have to report in until later in the afternoon. Being an ANBU captain meant leading a busy life, with occassional days off, though those were quite rare. Ah, that's right... Today was the graduation ceremony, the Hokage would probably expect her to be there as well, after all, it was her task to secure the parameters around the village and around the ceremony for as long it was needed. Whiping her bangs out of her eyes and face, the silver haired woman sighed loudly. Her body was sore from sleeping on the grass and it was kinda hard to even get up. Groaning as she pushed herself up, Yumi managed to actually stand up straight, still wobbling a bit from the nap she just had. As long as the Hokage wouldn't suddenly call upon her, she would be fine. Mabye she should head home first to get her ANBU attire on, because right now, she was dressed in an oversized, black hoodie and black shorts. "Guess I should get ready then.. This is going to be a long day." Stretching her arms, the Hatake descendant then started walking from the training grounds towards her house. Mabye Kai would be there, at least then she could have a bit of fun before heading off to do her duties.

There really wasn't much to do in the village during his downtime, Kai had realized extremely quickly. He had thought at times that being an ANBU would have him stock full of missions so often that he wouldn't even have time to wipe h-
Eh, Nevermind. Instead, he sat on a branch in a tree near some street, a place he visited often of late. Often times, he would stay sitting in this branch for too long, missing important meetings or being late to his team's gathering spots. And every time he'd use his Father's excuse, which was his Grandfather's as well. He was lost on the 'road of life'. But, anybody with half of a brain could look at the tree and spot the scorch marks that signified where he rested his head. When he was slightly younger, he wouldn't be as controlling over his inner fire, allowing it to surface anytime he became Angry or Distressed. He leaned forwards and turned his head to examine the scorch marks, a pensive look on his face. They were from the first few months after he had unlocked his powers, slightly after the Chuunin exam. When he was told that one of his best friends had been murdered, and in front of his Sister's eyes none the less.
That had been an explosive time for him and Yumi, and the first time he'd ever let Rage fully consume his thoughts. Kai remembered how the Rogue ninja had died. In a conflagration of wrath, his own doing. It was a mere scouting mission, dangerous to the degree of it being an A-rank, and his team had been assigned to it under careful guard of two Jounin. Kai had been separated from the group.
To say these ninja were truly powerful would be a lie. It seemed to Kai that in their laziness, they had lost most of their power, relying on intimidated. Well, he'd never been one to be intimidated. They had two holding him firm against a tree, the third bullying him and asking questions about his village. He had held steadfast, replying with snarky comments and insults. All this had gained him nothing more than bruises and pain, but who cared at that moment, Kai had already resolved that he was going to die. Another strike across the face, Kai spit blood on the dirt. "My grandmother hits harder than you!" SMACK. Yeah, it was worth it though... And it was true, Grandmother Anko was tough. She wasn't his actual grandmother, not even related to Yumi in that sense either. She simply liked him and proclaimed her his family member.
He felt cold steel on his throat, and the hot breath of the man leaning closer. "You remind me of someone, boy. I killed a boy not long ago. His little girlfriend was almost as much of a problem as you." He gestured to his shoulder, "Gave m' this scar too." Whatever else he had said was drowned out as he thought back on what Yumi had told him, the scar on the shoulder and chin, the strange knife he used. There was no time to say anything cool either, which kind've irked Kai, but the resounding explosion and the feeling of release of Chakra as he burnt everything around him made up for it...
You know, until he passed out and was hospitalized for three days AND had compromised his team in the mission.
Kai remembered that Yumi hadn't been too ecstatic to hear the news about the rogue shinobi's deaths. Ungrateful if you asked Kai, which nobody ever did anyway. Turning back to rest his head under the scorch mark, he glanced over at the silent silver haired woman who was now approaching his little spot. With a small movement, he dropped down in front of Yumi. "Speak of the Devil, and so shall she appear, it seems." His hands found his pockets and he gave a small smile, "What brings you to this area..." A frown again, followed by his fingers finding his chin, "I don't have a meeting I'm missing, do I? That'd probably not be good."
What I've felt, what I've known,
Sick and Tired, I stand alone,
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you,
Or are you Unforgiven too? ════════════
At first Fujitaka just listened the man as he finished what little paperwork he had and then instructed him to follow him. Obeying his orders, Fujitaka followed quickly behind him placing his mask back on his face so that his identity not be revealed by spying shinobi. He also kept a close watch on his surroundings just in case any shinobi tried to get the upper hand on the Mizukage. Many assassination attempts seemed to be happening since the alliance had broken up and he couldn't take any chances.
As the man said as long as he had him by his side he would see another day the man smiled behind his mask. The Mizukage was the only person he had respected and held to such a high regard. He considered him not only his superior but also a close friend that he woulds give his life for. "Yes, if it came down to an enemy attempting to kill you I would take the blow for you should I not be able to block." He said seriously. He had been put to this test often as well so it wasn't as if he were lying about the subject.
Most people said they would die for a cause but never were tested on that aspect. Fujitaka was different, his loyalty knew no bounds to the man in front ofhim and his village. He would kill for the village and his leader. When the man had asked him about forming an alliance with Konoha he had paused for a moment.
The way Fujitaka had thought of the village in its current state was weak. Not in physical prowess but their defenses and also their shinobi that always seemed to revolt or go rogue. That meant that the leadership of the village was horrible or their was heavy corruption in the village. He had known the past of Konoha being that he had read up on a lot of history books about various villages. If he had to rank the villages in terms of power Konoha would be number one. Yes many people would have picked their own village but Fujitaka didn't like lying to himself or not giving credit to others when it was due.
Fujitaka knew the leaf gave birth to strong shinobi and he wasn't saying that as if the Kirigakure didn't but he knew that many of their shinobi were prodigies like the Uchiha or Nara clans. They had even gave birth to Naruto Uzumaki, a liberator of the shinobi world and a hero. That man was respected by all throughout the shinobi villages and he was quite an idol of the swordsmen. Thinking further on the subject the man final came to a realization. "Getting in an alliance with the leaf would mean also getting in an alliance with the sand." He said to him stating the obvious. "I think that the Hokage will agree because he desires peace, or so I'm told... however you must also see if the Kazekage wants to form an alliance with us or it will be most troublesome." He commented.
Fujitaka was cunning and wise and he knew that getting the Kazekage to agree to cease fire and become allies would be most difficult, but however if they had Konoha pushing for this cause perhaps they could get this accomplished. Many shinobi were being killed everyday and while he liked to battle and kill his opponents he felt that causing strife would only lead to the demise of all the great villages. "I say do it, it will only strengthen our village, however when are you going to meet with him?" He asked curiously to the Mizukage.
