Uchiha, Yuji "Surrounded on all sides by strangers, now more than ever family is important."
With a more feminine face compared to his siblings it is not at all unreasonable for someone to mistake Yuji for a woman at a quick first glance, soft pale skin marked only by a light beauty spot on his upper left cheek resting on the ridge of his cheekbone. The mark runs is slightly off centred with the pupil of his left eye, straying slight to the right and towards his delicate nose below which is a thin lipped mouth. Above his blue grey narrow eyes rest rather thin and neat eyebrows sharing the colour of his brown black hair which he wears down to waist length.
Yuji holds a slender frame with a toned muscular structure due to the nature of his work, a large scar runs from the top of his left shoulder where the arm joins all the way diagonally down to his right hip. A wound he received from a shinobi whose blade cut just shallow enough to leave him alive, his families physicians could have helped it heal without a scar but Yuji wanted to remember the wound given to him by the first life he had taken. It reminded him not only of his own mortality but to respect life and not take it so easily.
Yuji has an extensive wardrobe that he wears but his typical and favourite attire is a form fitting high collared charcoal tank top, his clan crest patterned into the fabric resting at chest level proudly displaying his origins and loyalty. Loosely draped around his is a dark grey linen gown with an ebony silk trimming, one sleeve on the right having fallen down to collect at the elbow joint. The gown is tied together by a dark red sash that is tied in a bow at the rear, over his legs he tends to wear form fitting pants to match his tank top in colour.
Attached to a black linen ribbon Yuji's forehead protector is wrapped around his right arm, due to the sleeve of his gown being loosely draped around his elbow on the right side the protector is in full view for anyone to see. While some people would take great pride in their affiliation to Iwagakure, Yuji is very much indifferent towards it at present not really feeling like the village is his home still at this point. This does not stop him from displaying his village insignia however after all it is a fact that he is in service to Iwa.
Yuji tends to be more emotionally impulsive than his older brother but much more level headed when compared to his sister. While he tends to come across as snide and disrespectful to outsiders he tends to be gentle spirited towards his family. Yuji holds a passionate side to him also, having great love for music and literature. In terms of his heritage he holds great pride in being a member of the Uchiha clan, he often puts their needs ahead of his sometimes to his detriment.
Yuji's hopes to one day be of great service to his clan what that service will be he does not know yet, Yuji feels like when the time comes however he will be able to step up to the plate. Failure to do so terrifies him almost as much as losing his family, when Iwagakure brought their military might down upon the Uchiha clan he had seen a few members of his clan die and it has instilled a sense of how fragile life is.
Despite his hostile attitude towards outsiders his soft nature still holds some sway when it comes to combat preferring to avoid fighting all together whenever possible, while he is capable of taking a life it is not something he enjoys and tends to display respect towards his opponents in their final moments. If at all possible he tries to give his enemy a swift and painless death out of efficiency as much as mercy.
Yuji keeps 15 kunai in a quick draw pouch concealed within his gown, in a pouch attached to his sash he holds bandages, a vial of sterilising solution and a scalpel.
Yuji also holds in the sash pouch 5 explosive tags, 5 Smoke bombs and 5 Flash Pellets.

Yuji was born in the Kosshi Desert during one of the Clan's migration periods, as is tradition his immediate and extended family were gathered to witness his birth baring their gifts to the gods in the hopes Yuji would grow with the traits they represented. His brother brought a thin yet sturdy band of iron hoping his younger brother would grow up strong, it sure enough took the longest to burn in the flames used to sacrifice the objects to the clan gods. Shiori burnt a lily hoping her younger brother would grow up with a peaceful and gentle nature, the pair ceremoniously placed their offerings into the flames silently giving their prayers and wishes to the gods. Next his father and uncle sacrificed their gifts, his father burnt a cloth with the clan symbol hoping that Yuji would grow up with pride in his heritage. Yuji's uncle Kazuki who valued wisdom and knowledge above all else sacrificed a blank scroll and brush hoping Yuji would become wise with age. Lastly his mother burnt her offering with assistance due to the fatigue of birth, a small wooden carving of a lion in the hopes he would have courage. It was there his name was decided upon, Yuji written as courageous second son.
Yuji grew up with a childhood that was standard for those of Uchiha, he learnt the nomadic ways of his people and as soon as he was five began training the the Taijutsu art of the clan. His uncle an already famed for his Taijutsu prowess among the clan members was responsible for Yuji's training and was by no means soft in his approach. Yuji was never keen on these training sessions much preferring the lessons in art and music that his mother taught him, his range of instruments was diverse but he was far from mastering any particular one like his mother. He favoured the Koto above all else and was often caught skipping his uncle's lessons to practice his music instead.
Eiji's training began to intensify and before long he was considered one of the best combatants the clan had, when times became hard the clan had begun to make raids on Rock Country villages at the behest of Kazuki. Yuji's father disapproved of the raids but the majority of the clan demanded such action and going against their wishes was unwise. During this time period the Uchiha clan came into contact with Iwagakure the hidden shinobi village for the Rock Country, this resulted in a number of skirmishes as Iwagakure attempted to defend it's interests in the region.
The fighting led to the loss of life on both sides till the day Iwagakure had enough, a large shinobi task force was dispatched to quell this upstart clan, it happened suddenly in the night. Nobody knew they had been infiltrated until the fires began burning their tents, Yuji woke to his baby siblings cries. His father and mother were already rushing outside to defend their camp, Eiji was nowhere to be found and was likely meant to be on watch this night.
Yuji was told to stay and defend his brother and sister, with that command his parents were gone. The sounds of conflict continued outside as more Uchiha joined in the battle, it was at this moment a Iwagakure Jounin stepped into the tent a large blade in hand. He had a ruthless grin upon his face, he began to advance upon the twins. Yuji instinctively put himself between the babies and the Jounin approaching, with a simple swipe he batted Yuji out the way as if he was never there. He could only look on in horror as the man raised his large blade to end the lives of his innocent siblings. It happened quickly, there was a blur of movement and then crimson splashed against the tent walls. The Jounin has a look of disbelief about him, blood sprayed from a vicious wound in his neck. He seemed to gasp for air, clutching at the wound in a futile attempt to stop the blood flow before collapsing to the floor. Eiji stood before the crib of his siblings, kunai in hand dripping with fresh blood, he gave a weak reassuring smile to Yuji before scooping up Mitsuo and Mizuko.
The pair took a sibling each in arm and fled the tent, seemingly just in time as a fireball came soaring across the battle landing incinerating the tent they had just been in. Families lay dead in the camp, some of them not even having a chance to defend themselves. Yuji stood in horror at the loss of life before him, his brother's calls going unheard as Uchiha were rounded up or killed. It was the bright light that caught his attention, a ball of flames headed directly for Eiji everything happened in slow motion. Eiji's head turned in time to see the attack but not enough time to avoid it he chose to throw himself in the way of the fireball protecting the young baby cradled in his arms, the flames engulfed the left side of Eiji's face. He cried out in agony as it scorched the flesh, damaging his left eye in the process. The red of the Sharingan faded from his eyes as he fell to the ground, twisting his body to save the child from the fall.
The shinobi, not much older than sixteen, responsible for the attack began making his way over to Eiji, once again Yuji threw himself in the path of the assailant. This was a bigger mistake than before as the attacked didn't hesitate in drawing his blade and slashing diagonally across his torso, the pain was unbearable and Yuji collapsed in agony. Here he was again in the same situation as moments before, helpless to protect those he cared about. His hand brushed against something metal, his eyes glanced down to a loose tent peg. The shinobi continued towards Eiji to finish off what his first attack had started satisfied that Yuji was not a current threat, this mistake would cost him his life as Yuji found a surge of adrenaline giving him the strength to pick himself up off the ground. Tent peg firmly in his grasp he charged the Shinobi from behind, planting the tent peg firmly between the back of the ribs and deep into the shinobi. Blood drained from the corner of the Iwa Nin's mouth followed by streams from his nose also as he crumpled to the ground instantly, he didn't make the gasping sounds the Jounin had in the tent it was sudden, silent; death.
The battle was soon over in Iwa's favour with all Uchiha who had been rounded being placed in the center of the camp. The leader of this Iwagakure force now presented himself to the clan, Yuji's father close beside him, a prisoner, announcing his plan for the remaining Uchiha. They would serve Iwagakure to repay for the damages done to the Rock country or they would perish here in this camp along with the others. There seemed to be a disagreement between the clan as to what to do, the leader of the Iwa forces seemed patient however and said he would allow them to discuss it further. The catch that followed however served no argument between the clan, they were unified in their horror as Kazuo was sentenced to die for leading the clan against Rock Country and by extension Iwa.
Voices were raised in protest the clan members begged for leniency, it was only when a deep voice broke out across the camp that everyone hushed. Kazuki stepped forward offering himself in place of the clan leader, informing the Iwa shinobi the raid plans were in fact his own and how he had pressured the clan into taking this option. He saw now how foolish a course of action it had been, the Iwa Shinobi seemed to pause in thought before agreeing to the trade. Kazuki's last words before being executed were of his regret on the choice they had made to resort to such violent means, he urged the Uchiha to take Iwa up on it's offer not just for the sake of survival but for future generations so they would never know the hardship of nomadic life. With that his life was ended and the Uchiha feeling beholden to his final wishes accepted the offer and attempted to make the most out of it.
Yuji kept to himself during the academy, focused on his studies as was expected of him by his father. His father had become a much sterner man after the loss of his brother, at times bordering on cruel, he knew he could not take out his frustration on the village for fear of retribution so it came out against his children. He demanded that they set an example for the other Uchiha to follow however, constantly involving them in the village however and whenever he could. His parents grew cold towards each other tending to sleep in separate parts of the complex. Yuji was not the only Uchiha enrolled into the academy which was a small saving grace it made it easier for Yuji to go by unnoticed during his education.
Graduation came and went for Yuji, his family celebrated his appointment as a genin in the new tradition that had sprung up within the clan. Yuji was still unsure how he felt about the village, he spent a lot of his time in the complex avoiding his father when not on missions. He had not found any peers amongst the villagers or shinobi present in Iwagakure, out of all of the siblings Shiori had become the most sociable making many friends within the village. Due to his injuries, Eiji had lost the ability to speak resorting only to sign which provided it's own challenges for both making friends and communicating with his family. Yuji had managed to pick up enough to be able to translate for his brother, he felt partly responsible for his injuries after all. As a newly appointed genin Yuji truly had no idea what the future held for him.
