"Us humans. We are the ultimate race. However, we have let those demons trample us underfoot! This, I cannot acknowledge. As of now, we are too weak to fight back. All we can do is bide our time, building up strength. But soon, we will reclaim back our land. Those demons are invasive and they need to be eliminated."
Nasuka Uchiha (うちはナス科, Uchiha Nasuka, Paper Fan Nightshade) is a genin hailing from Konohagakure. She is part of the second generation of the Konoha 12, affectionately known by the current generation as "Minis".
Even at the young age of 12, Nasuka Uchiha is known throughout the Ninja World as Hidden Leaf's Searing Silver Mirage (木ノ葉の焦銀蜃気楼, Konoha no Shōgin Shinkirō). The moniker is credited to her Phoenix Release Chakra Mode and how it encases her body in searing silver flames. It is also credited to her usage of the Body Flicker Technique and Afterimage Clone.
Nasuka is the youngest child and first daughter to Seto and Reina Uchiha. She is the jewel of the family, having been pampered by both her parents and her siblings for as long as she could remember. Most of her early development was under the guidance of her older brothers, Itami and Yoru.
Upon her own insisting, Yoru taught her the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique, just several weeks after he himself learned the technique. Unlike Yoru and Itami, who perfected the technique the minute they were taught, it took Nasuka several days to get the technique all the way down. She was soon admitted to the Academy during Yoru's final year.
At first, Nasuka was in her own shell. She only opened up to her best friends, Suika and Yuzuha. In her year, she was one of the most excellent ones. She had been able to perform C and B-rank techniques in her first year. She even went so far as to master the Shadow Clone Technique.
In one of her Shinobi Kumite spars with Suika, the two got into an especially nasty argument that resulted in the awakening of Nasuka's Sharingan and a victory to Nasuka. Out of anger, she nearly killed Suika with a Fire Release: Spiralling Sphere. After this, they repaired their bond and had a relatively steady relationship for the rest of the two years they would be in the Academy.
The Forest and the Sage
Return to the Village
She was raised in a similar way to a princess. Her father, her mother, and her brothers all pampered her. Her mindset was, "I deserve anything and everything." However, this mindset didn't last long as she gave it up upon meeting her two closest friends in the Academy, Yuzuha and Suika. Yuzuha was exiled from her homeland just because she was the result of a forbidden relationship between clans while Suika was forever scarred from having seen her parents murdered in front of her. Nasuka gave up her spoiled life to a hardened one from hanging out with them.
Upon graduating, they were put on the same team because of the age difference between themselves and their fellow graduates. Nasuka and her two friends graduated after just one year in the Academy. At age 9, most would still be in the Academy, graduating at age 11 or 12. Under the leadership of Arashi, Team Arashi was the leader of their generation. They were still overshadowed by the Konoha 12, the pride of the Hidden Leaf.
Growing older, Nasuka became more calm and collected. However, this changed after a disastrous mission that ended with the death of Nasuka's beloved. The stress of the loss awakened the Kaleidoscope within her eyes. However, she does not remember the incident and is instead told of the incident through her teammates.
Nasuka Uchiha is quite beautiful for her age. Unlike her fellow Uchiha, Nasuka's eyes are an oddity. Instead of being midnight black or onyx in color, it is blue, caused by a mutation in the genetic code for her eye color. Like her brother, Yoru, her eyes seem to pierce through those who look at her.
Upon awakening her Sharingan, Nasuka's facial features became hardened. However, her innate beauty still lingers. She
Chakra and Physical Prowess
As an Uchiha, Nasuka has more chakra than other normal shinobi not blessed with powerful blood. Nasuka also has extremely fine chakra control as she had begun storing away chakra to form the Strength of a Hundred Seal upon graduating from the Academy. However, she was unable to unleash it until the Chūnin Exams, four years after she first began storing away chakra (Training for one year in the Forest of Resplendent Flames put a temporary halt on her ability to set chakra aside). She also utilizes Chakra Enhanced Strength. Her innate ability for chakra control is fine that she could use one finger to create a good-sized crack in hard rock.
Upon graduating from the Academy, Nasuka was led by the soul of Sasuke to the Forest of Resplendent Flames. There, she found a secret that the Uchiha kept locked away from the world. The Great Phoenix Sage resided there and happily greeted the young Uchiha. She formed a blood contract with the Sage and began training in the arts of phoenix senjutsu. In one year, she had mastered the usage of Phoenix Sage Mode and Phoenix Release. She also invented a transformation unique to her, Phoenix Release Chakra Mode. By coating her entire body with the flames of Phoenix Release, she gains an excellent healing factor and this doesn't include her Strength of a Hundred Seal which was completed when she finished her sage training.
As an Uchiha, Nasuka has a dormant Sharingan. She awakened the dōjutsu during a particularly bad spat with classmates in the Academy. From the age of seven, she had begun training using the eye, incorporating it into her fighting style. Nasuka's Sharingan is not that special but she had a keen sense of reading an opponent's moves. She could also track the best place to which a quick strike could end it. Her skill with genjutsu was exceptional. By the time she graduated from the Academy, Nasuka could entrap someone with Genjutsu: Sharingan with a glance from thirty meters away.
The mistress's Mangekyō Sharingan manifested when the boy she had developed feelings for was killed right before her eyes by Keshin Uchiha. Immediately after the murder, Nasuka manifested her Susanoo and gravely injured Keshin. However, due to the mental stress, she lost consciousness for several days, losing her memories of the encounter. Upon awakening in the hospital, her teammates would recount the event to her.
While she could still use her base Sharingan techniques, Nasuka gains access to two Mangekyō Sharingan techniques unique to her. Her left eye could cast the Demonic Illusion: Barrier of Moonlit Night. It is a type of barrier that utilizes genjutsu similar to the secret passage that connected Earth to the Moon in The Last: Naruto the Movie. However, her barrier utilizes the genjutsu Tsukuyomi within its boundaries.
Her left eye could also cast Kuraokami, the ice said to be unmeltable no matter the heat exposed to it. In this way, it is one of the only ways to combat another Uchiha with the Amaterasu as a Mangekyō Sharingan dōjutsu technique. The ice also has the power to extinguish the flames of Amaterasu. Quite a powerful technique to have the power to put out the said-to-be inextinguishable Amaterasu.
Her right Mangekyō uses the Demonic Illusion: Infinitesimal Controlling Awareness. This one, although similar to her other technique, is fundamentally different. While the Barrier of Moonlit Night is used to entrap opponents in a barrier of truly nightmarish illusions, the Infinitesimal Controlling Awareness creates a massive barrier that fortunately does not tax on her chakra levels (although it still deteriorates her Mangekyō Sharingan). This barrier is imbued with the genjutsu Kotoamatsukami which allows her to freely control anyone caught within the barrier without the latter's knowledge, hence the name of the technique.
Her right Mangekyō also casts a technique unique to Nasuka as well. The technique being the Glacier Release: Kuraokami. This technique is considered the antipode and exact opposite of the Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi. It is the ability to apply shape transformation to the unmeltable ice of Kuraokami.
Due to awakening the Mangekyō Sharingan in both eyes, Nasuka gained a third technique: Susanoo. With this, she can summon an ethereal warrior to fight for her. Nasuka's Susanoo is a cross between aquamarine and turquoise in color which does not match her chakra color which is beige. Upon continued usage of her Mangekyō Sharingan, Nasuka did manage to obtain the "final" version of her Susanoo which eerily mimics the final Susanoo of Itachi. The weapon of Nasuka's Susanoo is the Crimson Wheel Eternal Explosion. It is a sword that rivals the Tenseigan's Golden Wheel Reincarnation Explosion in terms of cutting power. It also has the ability to apply a relatively strong seal on those who are touched by the blade. The seal is about as strong as the Adamantine Sealing Chains of the Uzumaki although still relatively weaker than it.
Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan
When Nasuka became blind from overuse of her Mangekyō Sharingan, it was perfectly timed. Her brother, Yoru, had also just gone blind. The two siblings underwent the surgery of eye transplants. Upon recovering, Nasuka Uchiha flashed her eternal eyes. Her Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan has Straight Tomoe(直巴, Choku Tomoe), giving her enhanced clarity.
Upon partaking in her grandfather's eyes, Nasuka's Susanoo changed form. Her "final" Susanoo stabilized to become the Complete Body — Susanoo. Her Complete Body construct is shaped like Sasuke's form with some slight changes, including longer hair and three instead of two swords hanging at the construct's side. The Crimson Wheel Eternal Explosion, which remained stubbornly red when used by her normal Susanoo, finally relented and matched the colors of her turquoise Susanoo.
Nasuka was the highest scorer in her year and because of this, the Hokage allowed her to graduate early. Nasuka had an affinity for the fire nature as well as the wind nature although she has yet to learn how to use both efficiently.
Nasuka can outmatch almost anyone else in a competition of speed unless they have techniques like the Flying Thunder God. She is a master at the Body Flicker Technique, able to utilize both the Shadow Clone Technique with the Afterimage Clone very efficiently. In terms of pure speed and intelligence at using that speed, she surpasses her ancestor, Shisui Uchiha.
Barriers seem to be in her blood. It was an innate ability for her. She could utilize the Uchiha Flame Formation from the minute she performed the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique for the first time. Nasuka can manifest a crimson barrier just about anywhere. She could even add a time-lapse before her technique activates. She does this by first manifesting the barrier flames before weaving a Tiger followed by the Phoenix sign. Nasuka had no knowledge about the Phoenix sign and invented it herself. Eerily enough, it was the exact same sign used by Phoenix Sage Mode users!
Nasuka invented a whole new branch of genjutsu. It, at first, was unique to her and her Mangekyō Sharingan. However, she eventually learned how to imbue certain genjutsu such as Temple of Nirvana Technique into her barriers. Chakra control is necessary to properly use. She channels the chakra used to create the barrier in one hand while filling her other hand with chakra used to cast the genjutsu.
As an Uchiha, Nasuka has an affinity to fire. She was able to perform the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique at age 5, an amazing feat. This coupled with her strange double affinity to fire and wind allowed her some versatility. She invented a technique she dubbed Fire Release: Spiralling Sphere. By applying rotation to released fire-natured chakra from her palm tenketsu, Nasuka forms a flaming ball of heat. She also invented a powerful A-rank technique, Wind Release: Extremely Concentrated Spiralling Stream.
During the Genin Exams, Nasuka also learned how to make use of the Lightning Release. She made use of her fire techniques to create thunderstorms and summon Kirin to which she unleashed upon the forest. Unfortunately, it did not accomplish her goal but it did make it easier to fight since she had cleared out the forest of trees.
Nasuka is an adept user of the Phoenix Release. After only one year of training, she had mastered the usage of the silver flames. She utilized the special chakra mode that Phoenix Release grants to its users: Phoenix Release Chakra Mode. Since the flames are corrosive to anything other than herself, she can use it as a defense as it can incinerate almost anything. It even has the ability to consume another's chakra and assimilate it as Nasuka's own. When in Phoenix Release Chakra Mode, it is wise to not fight hand-to-hand as the flames will quickly corrode any flesh that comes into contact with it.
Nasuka Uchiha was the fourth Uchiha to successfully find the Forest of Resplendent Flames, the place where the phoenixes reside. She was led there by the spirit of Sasuke Uchiha. Upon arriving, she spent one year there, training in the arts of Phoenix Sage Mode. In this time, she also discovered that the Phoenix sign she had been making was the exact same as the one the phoenixes use. This further helped Nasuka's bond with Suzaku. She is an adept user of the Sage Art: Sacred Phoenix Possession.
Formation: Team 4
Energy of the World
The Man From the Underworld
Team 4's jōnin leader, Sentōmaru Arikane, is out of commission. He was sent out on a top-secret mission by the higher-ups and completed it, at the cost of being critically injured. He was literally carried back into the village by his comrades. He charged his team to not waver, ordering them to wipe their tears.
In order to take their minds off of the pain, the Tenth Hokage brought together Teams 3 and 4 for a joint mission. Nasuka, being the only one out of her generation to be promoted to chūnin, was appointed the leader of the mission. The nature of the mission was to investigate a Rogue Ninja by the name of Keshin Uchiha. Due to the danger of the mission and the nature of Keshin Uchiha, it was given an S-rank. The problem with the Hokage sending out these rookies is because the Konoha 12 were out at the frontlines forcing back the yōkai. They were short on staff and so had to send out the young ones. Nasuka immediately took control of the five under her command.
They went to the Hell Valley conveniently located in the Land of Hot Water. Immediately, the six stood back to back as they had sensed someone closing in. Nasuka launched her fireball at the incoming opponent. It continued and Nasuka whirled around to block an attack from behind her. Suika's Water Release: Water Forge Technique activated as she encased her blade with it. Meanwhile, Yuzuha had already entered Phoenix Release Chakra Mode. She wasn't taking any chances.
Suika's blade cut through the mist, while Nasuka coated several shurikens with silver flames and tossed them through the air, using her Sharingan to guide and make her aim precise. The other Uchiha applauded Nasuka's splendid usage of the Sharingan. However, he immediately moved on Team 3 and attacked them. Team 4 struggled against the older and more experienced Uchiha.
Nasuka wove several signs and erected a fiery barrier around the other Uchiha. However, the wiser Uchiha used a technique and walked directly through it without care. He then proceeded to press hard on Team 4. Keshin proceeded to use Kamitsumaki to accelerate the speed of his fireball. If it weren't for Gekko's swift movement, even Nasuka would have been unable to dodge the flames. Gekko took the flames with his body, completely head-on.
Darkness of the Prisms
The wounds proved fatal. Gekko's soul left his body and with that, Nasuka's Sharingan evolved. Her anger fueled her power and her Susanoo went directly to the armored variant. She made an infuriated slash at Keshin, cutting open his abdomen. However, he escaped back to The Yomi and the female Uchiha lost consciousness and collapsed from the mental stress.
This stress proved to be a blessing in disguise at it had erased her memories of that event. Upon awakening in the hospital three days later, her friends reiterated the events to her to which Nasuka had trouble recalling it herself. No matter. Her Mangekyō Sharingan had awakened. She observed her tomoe seal for a while before falling asleep again. Two days later, she was released from the hospital.
