Rin Nohara a chūnin-ninja from the Hidden Leaf Village and medical ninja for Team Minato.
Rin is a young medical ninja who was part of Team Minato along with Kakashi and Obito, Rin always played the role of peace keeper between the two boys and tried to hide her feelings for Kakashi as best she could. On the day that Kakashi was made into a Jonin, Rin brought a present of a field medical kit that she had made personally for him.
Knowing that kakashi would perfer something that he could use over anything else. The only person in the team not to bring a present was Obito. Obito loved Rin and had an idea of her feelings for Kakashi. Obito and Kakashi shared a small hatred for each other that often caused tension within the group. Kakashi was considered a Genius of Konoha where Obito was always playing catch up.
Rin was a sweet and friendly girl who cared deeply for her comrades as well as her village. She has been described as a kind girl and often played the role of peacemaker during Obito and Kakashi's many spats while remaining objective. Rin was also an intellectual individual, witnessed by her ability to learn as well as use high-level medical ninjutsu at such a young age. She was a devoted person as seen in her unwillingness to abandon Obito even when her own life was in great peril. She had a very strong will, as even though under what seemed to be the harshest of genjutsu, she would not break. While Obito had romantic feelings for her, this was not mutual, as Rin had romantic feelings for Kakashi instead, which were revealed only shortly before Obito was "killed" during the cave in.
Rin had short, shoulder-length, brown hair and large, bright, brown eyes. She also had two purple rectangular markings on each of her cheeks. She wore a long-sleeved black top, a high waist, light purple apron skirt under which she wore shorts. She also wore a blue Konoha forehead protector, sandals, and stockings that stopped at her thighs. While on missions, Rin carried around a backpack instead of a pouch containing her equipment. As an Academy student, she wore a simple outfit consisting of a light-coloured blouse with a bow tied in the middle and a simple sleeveless haori. As a genin, Rin wore a light-coloured outfit with shuriken patterns over it, with a belt around her waist and several pouches. Underneath this, she wore chain-mail armour, and calf-length sandals.
In the anime, during her mission with Kakashi and Might Guy, she wore the standard Konoha flak jacket over her light-coloured outfit and shuriken-patterned apron skirt.
It was on the day of the present giving that Minato told the group of their mission, and that he would not be leading but Kakashi would, Of course Obito disliked the idea. They where to destroy a bridge that was being used by enemy forces to enter Konoha and therefore help in the third great shinobi war effort. But disaster struck when Rin was taken by two Iwgakure Jonin. Obito wanted to rescue his team mate, But Kakashi said that the mission came first. Kakashi found himself in the same situation as his father( Sakumo) had been in the past and did not want to make the mistakes that his father had. Obito disagreed and left Kakashi not before telling him that what his father did in the past made him a hero not a disgrace. Obito was confronted by Taiseki one of the Iwgakure ninja’s and was soon over powered, just then a flash of silver filled the air and using his fathers sword Kakashi entered the battle just in time to save Obito. As the battle raged on Taiseki managed to strike at Kakashi left eye, Kakashi had used his own body to block an attack meant for Obito. Obito terror took over as he watched the blood escape his friend’s eye and in him awakened the Sharingan, using it he killed Taiseki and helping Kakashi they headed for Rin. It was here that Kakashi life would change forever, Obito and Kakashi fought against the last ninja and saved Rin, As the battle progressed Obito and Kakashi worked as an unbeatable team and freed Rin, Rin had managed to not tell her enemies of their plans even under toture by the enemy ninja's but this had also taken a toll on her body leaving her unable to fight for herself, they two boys helped carry Rin, But the victory was short lived as the final Ninja caused a cave in, Obito dived in time to save Kakashi from a falling rock which landed on him instead. As Obito lay dying he gave Kakashi a final gift for becoming a Jonin his left eye (Sharigan) Rin began to cry as Obito asked her to use her medical ablittes to take the left eye and place it into Kakashi damaged eye.
Rin worked fast telling Kakashi that they did not have long and they would need to take the eye before Obito died, showing that even under great pressure she was still a great ninja, using her medical tech implanted the eye into Kakashi and using the Chordi broke free of the cave in and killed the Ninja who had caused Obito's death. Just then enemy reinfrocements arrived and Kakashi fought to protect Rin asking her to run, but rin refused and went to tell Kakashi of her feelings when he interupted her, Telling her that he would not let her die as Obito loved her, bitting her bottom lip she looked away as the enemy ninja's started to attack. Just as the the battle looked as if it was over Minato showed up and saved the Rin and Kakashi, The three then went on to finish the mission and that is the last we have seen of Rin in the Naruto world. Some say that she is dead and others say she is a memeber of the Anbu blacks ops, but the turth is it still remains a mystery to all Naruto fans.
In the anime, it was shown that Rin was sent out on a mission with Kakashi and Guy. With their situation looking grim, Guy used himself as a decoy to lead away the Iwagakure shinobi, and Kakashi went after him. Rin later returned with backup from Konoha, which caused the enemy-nin to retreat.
Some time after the events at Kannabi Bridge, Rin was kidnapped by Kirigakure and made the jinchūriki of Isobu in order to have her be rescued so the tailed beast could be let loose within Konoha. To ensure the plan's success, various jōnin and ANBU-level Kirigakure shinobi were sent to feign chasing them so that their return to the village would be hastened. Knowing this, Rin requested that Kakashi kill her to protect the village. Though Kakashi refused, Rin later intercepted Kakashi's attack, impaling herself on his hand. The Kiri-nin made an attempt to retrieve her corpse before leaving, but were stopped by an enraged Obito who had awoken his Mangekyō Sharingan after witnessing the events.
Since her death, Kakashi would usually visit her grave, even sharing top-secret intel with her such as Naruto's birth as witnessed by Obito who had snuck back into the village in disguise.
Rin's death, much like the deaths of every person dear to him, affected Kakashi but more so as she both loved him and he killed her with his own hand. Even on the verge of death himself during Pain's invasion, Kakashi lamented on how he failed to protect her and said he was going to see her alongside the rest of their team. When her death was brought up much later, Kakashi was visibly stunned, to the point of being unable to move.
Rin's death also had a deep impact on Obito, who had survived the cave-in and watched it unfold from afar. The trauma of this event caused both him, and Kakashi to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan, and while Kakashi passed out, Obito slaughtered the Kirigakure ninja with his new-found powers. The sight of Rin's corpse was Obito's motivation to carry out Madara Uchiha's Eye of the Moon Plan — to create a world where people did not have to stand over graves and make pitiful excuses. He also noted that despite this reason, he did not blame Kakashi for her death, because of the insignificant reality they were in which was about to disappear, once his plan was complete. Nevertheless, he seemed infuriated when Kakashi mentioned Rin, and responded with brutality.
All in all, Rin died a loyal shinobi to her village, despite being kidnapped and made a jinchūriki in an attempt to wreak chaos on Konoha by Kirigakure. She chose to die rather than even risk bringing destruction to her home, exemplifying the Will of Fire inherited by the generation of Konoha shinobi.
As a medical-nin, Rin's primary duty on missions was to give support to her team-mates which she did with great aptitude and was even able to teach her team-mates basic first aid. Despite her age, she displayed great skill with medical ninjutsu able to aid her team on a high-ranked missions during the Third Shinobi World War as well as successfully implant Obito's left Sharingan into Kakashi's eye socket in a short period of time and with only basic medical tools. Rin's will is also incredibly strong as she was able to resist leaking any information when under Kakkō's genjutsu.
After her capture by Kirigakure during Third Shinobi World War, she was forcefully made the jinchūriki of Isobu as part of a ploy to launch an undercover attack on Konoha. However, due to her untimely death, it's not revealed if she had any control over the beast, or access to any of its abilities.
