Naruto Uzumaki is a 12 year old boy with yellow hair and blue eyes in the Ninja Academy who has a strong ambition to become the best Hokage of all. After failing to graduate from the Ninja Academy for the third year in a row, Naruto Uzumaki is approached by Mizuki, an instructor at the Academy, who instructs him to steal a scroll. Naruto, ambitious to graduate, gets it after his successful robbery against the 3rd Hokage with a special technique. Iruka Umino finds Naruto and protects him from Mizuki, but in the process Mizuki tells Naruto the reason nobody seems to likes him; The Nine-Tailed Fox Demon that attacked the village twelve years ago was defeated when The Fourth Hokage sealed the Demon inside Naruto, giving his own life in the process. Using the special technique from the scroll, Naruto defeats Mizuki. Due to the act of saving his life and making an outstanding performance proving him worthy of being a ninja, Iruka allows Naruto to graduate.
