|This article, Kusuna, is currently under active construction. The author, Munchvtec, apologizes for the inconvenience.|
Kusuna (クスナ, Kusuna) is the Jonin Commander of Kirigakure. He was born January 1st 20 BNB.
As a young child, Kusuna was a loving individual. He was a bubbly child and wasn't very shy. This changed after his parents' death. Because of this, Kusuna became less social; almost mute. He grew up in a sad environment due to an absence of parental love though this slightly changed after "Toshiro" took Kusuna in as his own. Kusuna never really socialized much with others.
In his older years; Kusuna is a typically relaxed, selfless and level-headed individual who almost always has a somewhat bored attitude. Kusuna does a good job at masking his feelings. He makes attempts to avoid any serious commitments or responsibilities, doing as little as necessary and being ever-modest about his capabilities. Kusuna is a naturally lazy person. His goal was to live unremarkably, free of anything of noticeable good or bad, and then to die just as unremarkably as he lived. Kusuna will always step up for the sake of his friends or what he truly believes in. He will at times show a somewhat comedic behavior, teasing or cracking jokes (even if at bad times). He hardly ever smiles except for during such moments or when he's with his family. Though not always home, he never forgets about his friends or family and feels a deep connection to them. He is also very protective and patient.
During combat, Kusuna isn't always very serious. He'll play with and tease his opponent/s while keeping a cool and relaxed mindset. He also isn't against goading his enemies. When faced with a powerful enemy or a difficult decision, he can become very serious. He is extremely good at keeping himself hidden even though he should've been a well-known shinobi, very few knew of him before his reveal. Kusuna is also an extremely intelligent individual, even more so than the likes of Black Zetsu, Shikaku Nara and Shikamaru Nara.
As a child, Kusuna had long, chin length, black hair and his bangs were almost always covering his eyes; even as a baby. He greatly resembles a child Nagato. All except his hair color.
Kusuna, as an adult, has long, smooth, upper chest length, black hair. His bangs were usually covering his light-purple colored eyes. He is normally seen wearing a black hooded robe that reaches his feet when traveling. Under this, he wears his normal attire.
When releasing his Jashin Chakra, Kusuna's eyes become a glowing green and they darken around the sides. He gains large black cuts all over his body that are held shut with large black stitches. Black chakra emanates from within these wounds. He grows a large smile while his lips are nearly completely held together with black stitches.
January 1st - Born on a small farm located in the Land of Snow, just outside of Yukigakure.
His mother (Maki) was seen as just an ordinary women though she was born with Sensory abilities like that of Karin. She works as a housewife/farmer on her husbands and her land. She was born in Uzushiogakure but moved to the Land of Snow at a young age (2). Her parents were Uzumaki clan members that were killed on a mission. Kusuna's father was a Yukigakure Jonin named Nishijo. Nishijo was born in the Land of Snow and his parents were not shinobi.
January 1st to December 31st - Kusuna was raised by his parents in the Land of Snow.

March 3rd - During a dispute between Yukigakure and Ishigakure, a large group of around 150 Ishi shinobi attack Yukigakure as well as the Land of Snow. A four man squad of high-level Ishi Jonin attack Kusuna's house. His father, using his Water Release techniques manages to kill one of the four. The other three unleash a devastatingly powerful Earth Release collaboration dragon attack on him, killing him. Kusuna's mother hides Kusuna and using her unique Sensory abilities as well as a discarded kunai from the previous battle, attacks and stabs one of them in the neck, killing him. She is quickly disposed of by the remaining two. The two, having basic sensory skills, notice a week chakra signature from inside the house. Before they can find Kusuna, a group of Sunagakure shinobi led by Chiyo arrive and wipe the two out. Yuki, with Suna's assistance, wins this large battle.
They later bring Kusuna to an orphanage located in Sunagakure.
Ages 4 and 5Edit
Kusuna stayed at the orphanage in Sunagakure. Saw other children playing using chakra threads to control small puppets. Kusuna became fascinated with this and soon began leaving the orphanage unannounced to practice the Puppet Master technique.
The Second Shinobi World War begins at some point. Kusuna stumbles upon a mysterious, previously destroyed town in Suna. There, Kusuna meets an old man named "Toshiro" (was actually an old famous shinobi named Monzaemon Chikamatsu who was thought dead). Toshiro was amazed at Kusuna's talent with the Puppet technique, being able to control two puppets at once at such a young age while not even being a ninja. Kusuna soon leaves the orphanage when Toshiro decides to take him in as his own. Begins training with Toshiro and was taught basic ninja skills like E-ranked techniques and such. Received a bit of training in Kenjutsu and Taijutsu as well.

Toshiro (Monzaemon) no longer having his ten puppet collection, fends them off and is able to take six of the Anbu down. Hanzo then kills Toshiro. Kusuna, still fighting the enemy, kills two of the Anbu. About to kill a third with his five puppets. Hanzo and Kandachi intervene and knock him out. They bring him back to Amegakure. Sunagakure sends out teams to track Kusuna (not knowing what happened) but they overall list him as killed in the war. Kusuna was later released from an Amegakure prison after a week. Kusuna had no affection for Suna, especially after Hanzo convinces him that Toshiro was a very bad man. Hanzo told Kusuna the truth about Toshiro and who he really was. He then accepts Hanzo's request for him to become a Genin in Ame. Remained a genin for three days. He was later allowed to join Ame's Anbu.

He asks them if he may use his Memory Needle technique on them for their safety and they agree with him.

Just chills and trains a bit to hone his skills. During a trip to Yugakure for the Hot Springs, Kusuna meets a rogue Yu Shinobi and learns Forbidden Fuinjutsu. Specifically, a technique that allows him to seal the abilities of the deceased into himself through mere contact. While training with the rogue Yugakure shinobi, a faction of about ten rogue Yugakure Shinobi attack and slaughter the other rogue ninja. Kusuna begins battle with the ten shinobi. They ramble on and on during the fight, speaking about Lord Jashin and a fellow named Hidan. They utilize Hidan's Curse Technique: Death Controlling Possessed Blood jutsu though they aren't immortal. They also wield Triple Bladed Scythes and have various other techniques. Kusuna manages to defeat them and takes the remaining one (Vecna) to a secure area. He looks into his mind with an advanced Yamanaka Clan technique and learns many dark secrets that Kusuna himself won't dare talk about. Kusuna decides to kill Vecna and just before he can, he chants a demonic prayer to Jashin which makes many demon-like creatures called Howlers rip their way through his body, killing him. These creatures utilize a weak version of Kimimaro's Bone techniques and other abilities. Kusuna kills them all. Many months later, in the middle of the night, a humanoid resembling Hidan in his Cursed state attacks Kusuna. This individual turns out to be Jashin. After a long battle, Kusuna knowing Jashin is much stronger than he is and fearing what he has previously learned, attempts to seal him away inside of himself after receiving major wounds. Kusuna succeeds in this attempt. Gains all of Jashin's abilities excluding immortality. Sometimes, when using Jashin's Chakra, Jashin can speak alongside Kusuna though that's all he can do. Sometime later, Kusuna develops a technique made to specifically combat people like Hidan. This technique allows him to control his blood with Water Release. He can control any of his blood within a mile radius of himself. Kusuna can also change his Blood Type whenever he wishes.

Mei teaches him Lava Release and Boil Release. Kusuna masters all known types of Lava Release. On another trip to Konoha, Kusuna runs into Guren, Gozu and Yukimaru. They recently arrived in Konoha as an offer from Kakashi Hatake. Kusuna mentions that while he was in the Land of Rice Fields with Orochimaru, he had read up on files containing information regarding various Otogakure shinobi and experiments. He requests a battle with Guren to which she agrees. After their match ended with Guren's loss, Kusuna requests she teaches him her Crystal Release to which she states it cannot be taught. Kakashi informs her of Kusuna's special ability to learn almost anything. They train together and Kusuna masters the Crystal Release in two weeks time. Guren asks Kusuna to see if they can move to the Land of Water. Kusuna asks them why they don't just become Kiri shinobi, the boy has family that originates from there.

Trains and such. Has a Chakra Level close to that of Hagoromo. Around this time Kusuna was seen as one of the most gifted shinobi in history, recognized as the strongest alive. Kusuna has surpassed the likes of Madara Uchiha, Hashirama Senju, Sasuke Uchiha, Naruto Uzumaki etc. and could hold his own against the likes of Hagoromo and even challenge Kaguya and last days battling her to a near standstill (only losing due to exhaustion and chakra loss; is unable to seal her due to his connections with Yuki). He could fight for weeks on end before collapsing due to sheer exhaustion.
- In this somewhat alternate timeline, everything happens the same except for when Hanzo died.
- This is my first character, I specifically made him overpowered.
- I will not be including ability sections in any of my character articles as I'd rather the reader read what I write and imagine things on their own.
