(うちは神威) Uchiha Kamui, the Shodaime Hokage was one of the many founders of the nation of Konohagakure no Sato and began paving way for a newer generation with the creation of many establishments and groups which many still flourish to this date in Konoha.
Before the era of ninja villages, Kamui was considered one of the most gifted members amongst his brethren of the Uchiha Clan; alongside with his three brothers.
Kamui competed mostly against his youngest brother, Uchiha Genjuro as basic training but due to not meeting his father's expectations, the training hours were long, harsh and grueling even to the two shinobi.
This treatment would change when the youngest brother achieved the final stage of his Sharingan, the third tomoe.
His chakras were considered strong especially by his clan's standards and was even considered a prodigy amongst his fellow clan-mates. As a child, Kamui met a young shinobi from another rival clan who went by the name of Risuku.
The young Kamui instantly hit it off with this odd, young shinobi by challenging him to a simple game of "tag" which was met with opposition at first until the boy reluctantly gave in due to the constant demands by his new-found friend.
Months would pass as their friendship blossomed to a brotherhood as it would seem, Risuku and Kamui would secretly meet by a large riverbank, every morning to practice their Ninjutsu.
This activity would happen on a daily basis for almost a year, however what they didn't know is their siblings were also on a covert activity; this one being a mission directly from a parental higher-up.
During the upcoming months that passed, Kamui noticed that his use of his Doujutsu had progressed even further then he had expected; manifesting the third and final tomoe during a spar with his father.
Having passed his father's test of manhood, he was allowed to visit the Naka Shrine and see his mother once more; whom he hadn't seen since she was taken away from him as a young child.
It became apparent upon entering the shrine, he saw a large picture of what resembled his mother hanging in the far-back of the building; partially obscured by a silk drape.
After he parted the drapes that over-hanged over the memorial of the picture, something came into his view and it seemed to human wrapped in decoratively in fine silk, he was shivering from his nervousness; the thought of approaching it frighten him.
His own hands shook at the prospect of unwrapping a human being but he started to scream when he found out the harsh realities of the truth he was seeking; the decorative silk wrapping contained the preserved corpse of his mother.
That night...he let his own hatred overcome him and went to confront his father about the "truth". He was only met with silence until his 'old man' began to laugh and activated his own doujutsu, the Sharingan; he was heading towards Kamui in attempts to kill him.
After his confrontation with his father, he was the decided victor upon hearing the real truth of his conception during their deadly confrontation. He was nothing more than a puppet, a mere pawn in the greater goals that his megalomaniac 'father' was ambitious about.
He soon came to realize why he was treated as a black sheep of the family, his father had beget his mother; a powerful kunoichi whom was from the rival Senju clan.
His father's greed and lust led him to going as far to subdue her in a fight, kidnap her, then imprisoning her within the confines of the Naka Shrine in attempts to create a vessel that suited his own selfish satisfaction and lust for power.
After hearing such revelations, the man sought out to be alone and began to welcome the strongest emotion of hatred for the first time in his life, but the ill will he had harbored for his Uchihan brethren would help him further his own progress of the Sharingan into the Mangekyō Sharingan.
Two years passed...
Kamui was quite aware of his own treachery against his 'so-called' kin and knew full well that sooner or later, they would come to end his existence or he will more likely end theirs, sooner or later. He went as far as to defect to the Senju clan in attempt to seek some asylum from his father, whom was the Uchiha Leader at that time.
One day, Kamui got tired of his everyday life living with the Senju and decided to carve out his own path; allowing himself to not live in fear of retaliation from his kin. In fact, he was more than strong enough to take on his brethren, ever since he learned the abilities of his doujutsu; the young man hwas able to master the ocular techniques in the course of the years that came and went.
He met with his friend one last time on the outskirts of the Senju village to reminisce with him about the struggles of his livelihood, his betrayal to his family and his dreams of achieving peace by eventually laying down his own set of foundations for the shinobi world.
At the moment of their conversation ending and their usual exchange of the seal of reconciliation, three shinobi arrived on scene. It turned out that his brothers were shadowing his moves for those course of the years and went as far as to gain the eyes that he had by brutally murdering their kinsmen they were most close to.
The three Uchiha brothers confronted the two, which in the end would lead up in a rather violent clash between Genjuro, Takashi and Izumo respectively.
Risuku at first decided to offer his hand in his battle, but was met with rebuttal from his friend as it was his fight and his alone.
The battle between the brothers was fierce, lasting for a full three days until one of the brothers was declared the winner at the end. Kamui came out front and subsequently won, but at a dire cost, his eyes were rapidly losing their vision.
In an horrendous display in front of his best friend, Kamui robbed the dead bodies of his brothers of anything that was useful to him, which included their eyes. Risuku tried to talk some sense into his friend but was met with a harsh rebuttal, Kamui had no choice but to bare his fangs in the form of his Sharingan and went as far to threaten his life if he even attempted to follow him.
Risuku was distraught to find out that his closet friend had started harboring malicious intent to not only his own people, but also towards himself; it was a feeling of helplessness that lingered within the fiber of his being. Although Risuku was determine to bring his friend back at any cost, he was outclassed at the time and he decided to become stronger while his friend ventured out into the world.
As quickly as their exchange took place, Kamui left the village and ventured out into the world to not only discover himself, but also learn as much as he could about the warring states. One of his many goals was to learn about everything that is knowledgeable in the world and find a way to further increase his powers exponentially; immortality was another one of these goals as well.
The beginning of an end...
Five years would pass since Kamui ventured out on his own into the world, he wasn't one to stay in one place too long and never really got comfortable with his surroundings as he traveled.
Unfortunately that all changed when he met a woman from the Kurama clan, whilst staying at a resort located in the Hot Springs Country.
Final confrontation and the decisive battle!
At the world's end
Death and Rebirth
