Age : 16 (July 23)
Origin : Konohagakure
a stereotypical idol boy, he's cool, calm, and confident. more so, Sasuke was the best genin in Konohagakure. being the no.1 is not enough since his primary objective is to kill his evil brother, Itachi, who had killed all of Uchiha clan but him. thus he has to be stronger than anybody else. the angst had sink him deeper and deeper into darkness. Orochimaru knew his true strength and laid the seal curse on his neck, he was promised an ultimate power to defeat his brother. thus Sasuke betrayed his comrades and his village. at first, Sasuke underestimated Naruto just like everybody else, but later on he acknowledged Naruto as his strongest opponent and his best friend as well. under surveilence of Orochimaru, Sasuke is going stronger and stronger that he even surpassed Orochimaru. Sasuke feels that he doesnt need him anymore, so he killed Orochimaru and taken over his body. then he recruited 3 other shinobi, Suigetsu, Karin, and Juugo to join his team, Hebi their mission is to hunt down Uchiha Itachi. in the end Sasuke finally defeated Itachi but he never expected to hear the truth of Itachi's sacrifice from Tobi. Sasuke is filled with more hatred towards Konoha for what they had done to Uchiha clan and esp. to his late brother, Itachi. so he decided to join Akatsuki as a new team called Taka (Hawk) with their first mission i.e. hunt down the Hachibi.

Karin is the guard of Orochimaru's Northern hideout. she seems to have a crush on Sasuke (Sakura got another rival ha ha) thou she acts cocky in front of Suigetsu but she doesn't hesitate to flirt on Sasuke when they were alone. Karin would lie in front of Suigetsu which will then lead them into a stupid brawl ^o^. Karin has a strong sense of chakra that she could tell someone's location by its chakra. recently she also known to be able to heal someone by transferring her cakra when someone bites her body. i think she's a bit masochist lol

Juugo and Kimimaro are Orochimaru's fave subjects, Kimimaro was also known as the only one who could stop Juugo's rampage without getting hurt. when Juugo found out that Kimimaro died for Sasuke's sake, Juugo wanted to know how strong is Sasuke by joining Hebi team.
