Origin

Hinata grew up as the first born child of the Hyuga family, making her the heir to the clan's main house. Because of this she grew up having a huge amount of responsibility and expectations placed on her, and as a result her father was always pushing her. Because of this she developed a very shy and frail personality, becoming very reserved. This wasn't helped by the fact that when her younger sister Hanabi was born her father almost completely gave up on her and focused entirely on training her sister.

However, she began to change the day that she met Naruto Uzumaki and she saw that no matter how much people put him down he remained confident and headstrong. He was just like her, being treated as an outcast for no reason that she could see, yet he was determined to prove them all wrong. It was because of this that she got the strength to enter the ninja academy.

Naruto isn't the only ninja who had an impact on her childhood. During her early years Hinata was kidnapped by ninja's from the Land of Lightning. Her father saved her by killing the kidnappers, but the ninja's from the Land of Lightning demanded compensation so they demanded that her father, Hiashi, be killed. However, his brother stepped in to take his place as they were identical twins. Because of this Hinata's uncle perished, and it fundamentally shaped the life of Hinata's cousin Neji, who grew up to hate Hinata and the Hyuga's main family.

After attending and graduating from the Ninja academy to the ranks of Genin, she was assigned to be part of a squad with Kiba and Shino, and the three of them were trained under Kurenai . It was thanks to her family's Byakugan, Kiba's sense of smell, Shino's tracking bugs, and Kurenei's mastery of illusions that this team became known for its hunting, tracking, and stealth abilities.

Character Evolution

In part 1: Hinata was a very shy young girl at the point she fainted when she seen naruto or when he would speak she has been shown to have many hobbies. As when she made medicine for naruto showing she can learn medic like sakura did and hinata could stand her ground as at the "Chunin Exams" keeping good speeds with her cousin neji. This only was half as she was featured to have hidden skills of chakra manipulation as this was shown in the later episodes.

In Part 2: Hinata after part one turned into a young women showing more female feats then her part 1 counterpart she still had her moments around naruto where she faints or stuttered around him more. Her fighting style since have been improved dramatically as she faced more enemies along side her team mates.

Major Story Arcs

Chunin Exams Arc

In the Anime Hinata made her first appearance in the first episode pining after Naruto, but in the manga she didn't appear until the Chunin Exams, and even in the anime she didn't really play any role until then. During this storyline she was one of the twelve ninjas from the leaf village who were taking the exam to move on to the next level of the ninja hierarchy and become Chunin. It was here that we first got to see her crush on Naruto actually motivating her actions within the storyline.

During the first part of this arc she had to take a writing test right next to Naruto and she offered to let him cheat off her, however he turned her down for fear of the both of them being expelled from the exam. Then in the second test her squad, made up of Kiba and Shino, were sent into the a training ground to try and survive for five days and find a second half of a scroll they had been given. Their team was one of the first to accomplish this mission, however they were held up from progressing as they stopped to examine Gaara and his team as they battled for a scroll. It was through watching this battle that they became the first members of the Leaf Village to see what kind of power and bloodlust he had.

The third round of the Chunin Exams were a one on one tournament between the remaining Genin with the

opponents chosen at random. Hinata had the misfortune of being picked to go up against her cousin Neji. During the fight Neji revealed why he had a grudge against Hinata, about how his family was made to serve her side of the family, even though he considered her a weakling who would never be anything more. He went on and on about how she would never be anything other than the pathetic girl she is and that it was impossible to change. However, Hinata stood strong. She thought about how she had always seen Naruto being treated as a clown in school and how everyone thought that he would never succeed at anything, yet now he was a powerful ninja. His words about being able to change your fate rang loud and clear in her ears, and as he cheered her on from the stands she felt herself growing bolder. She then stood up to Neji and battled him with a strength even she didn't know she possessed.

However, in the end it still wasn't enough. He won the battle and beat her to the point of possibly dropping dead, even moving in for a kill shot only to be stopped by several other ninjas who jumped in to save her. As she was carried off on a stretcher Naruto swore he would avenge her, and he later did at the final matches of the Exams, with Hinata in the crowd watching and this time being the one to cheer for him.

Rescue the Kazekage Arc

After Naruto left the village the series jumped two and a half years. Once he returned he finds that the village looks fairy different and the same can be said for the people as well. Hinata (who now has attained the rank of Chunin) is first seen after Naruto has returned from a mission and he meets Shino who accuses Naruto of not remembering him, followed by Kiba who arrives now riding his dog Akamaru, who used to be so small that he could ride on his head. He hears a small shriek behind a fence, which is coming from Hinata who now appears just as shy if not even more shy of talking to Naruto now that he's come back older. She thinks about what she should say to him as he comes up and says hi first, delivering a shock to her so great she faints.

Itachi Pursuit Arc

The first real arc that Hinata was involved in after the Time Skip was during Sasuke's fight with Deidara and then with Itachi Uchiha. Naruto and his team set out with Hinata's team, now called Team Kurenai, in order to track down Itachi and hopefully find Sasuke in the process. They took her along because even after the time skip her team was still the best when it came to tracking and recovering people.

Hinata was teamed up with Naruto, and she was able to keep herself strong for him, she even made sure to tell him "I won't let you down." Accompanied by a tracking ninja dog supplied by Kakashi and Yamato. Yamato was brought along to help contain The Nine Tails if Naruto lost control, and Hinata accompanied them because she was the best choice for looking out for the Akatsuki. It was her group that ran into Kabuto, making her one of the first to witness the start of his bizarre transformation after having absorbed part of Orochimaru.

Invasion of Pain Arc

When Pain invaded the Hidden Leaf Village he completely destroyed almost every building and structure in one mighty blast. Hinata tried to help dig people out of the rubble, but stopped when Naruto arrived to finally take Pain down. She watched from a safe distance as Naruto fought each Pain and took down his many bodies one by one, but he was then eventually struck down and rendered immovable as Pain stabbed several chakra absorbing spikes into his body. Hinata watched on and as she saw the one she loved about to be captured, and she finally found the strength inside to take action.

Leaping into the battlefield, Hinata stood between Pain and Naruto. She remembered back to the first time she saw him, about how she saw everyone in the village talking about this mysterious " Kyubi" and shunning Naruto from them, but it never got him down. She thought about how she was also shunned, and one day a group of bullies were harassing her and shoving her face in the dirt, making her cry. But then Naruto, who didn't even know her back then, stepped up to try and stop them. Even if he did lose to them, that was the moment she realized he was the kind of person she wanted to be. And as she thought back to that day, she realized it was now her time to stand up and protect Naruto. It was then that she finally got the strength to tell Naruto that she loved him.

Hinata charged into the battle, exhibiting several attacks such as the Twin Lion Fist that she hadn't known before the time skip. This was really the first time since this time skip that she really got a chance to show what she had learned. However it wasn't enough. She was tossed around thanks to Pain's telekinetic powers, until he finally delivered a killing blow with one of his chakra absorbing spikes. She actually didn't die, the attack barely missed her vital organs and Sakura was able to get to her in time to heal her. However, the sight of her being stabbed was enough to cause Naruto so go into a blind rage, letting the six tails form of her Kyubi rise up and take over his body.

After the battle was over and Naruto saved the day, Hinata watched on at Naruto who was receiving praises from the villagers, and she just smiled and felt no need to say anything else. So far in the series the two of them have yet to discuss her proclamation of love or what it could have mean for the two of them.

Hinata was later assigned to the Second Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces alongside Neji, Kurotsuchi and Karui. She commented that she was a little nervous, while Karui told her that war was nothing to worry about. However, she instantly noted that many ninja didn't trust each other due to years of being each other's enemies which worried her. She was seen fighting numbers amount of zetsu clones and easily defeating them with ease but this was also a down fall as she and her team started to get tired from fighting they still didn't give up for the sake of the world so over a day they fought endlessly.

Hinata's Jutsu:

Substitution Jutsu: a basic ninja technique

Byakugan: A Kekkai Genkai, which imparts the user the ability with enhanced eyesight. It also confers the ability to see Chakra and Chakra points. The eyesight abilities are varied. It enables the user 360 degree vision, telescopic vision, microscopic vision and also chakra sense.

Gentle Fist Technique: This is the Hyuuga clan family jutsu: it is a strong taijutsu style that relies on attacking with chakra enhanced blows. There is no defence against this technique, as no matter how much you train your body, nobody can train to protect their chakra.
