The Curse of the Uchihas: Uchiha Madara

Part 1 of 4

Uchiha Madara

Uchiha Madara
Madara didn’t start out his life alone. He had a number of people in his life during his childhood and part of his adulthood. His father’s name was Uchiha Tajima. Madara was the oldest of 5 boys, three of whom died young and on the battlefield. That left Izuna, whom I believe was the youngest brother. Izuna and Madara became close because of the loss of their brothers. They trained and fought together, this combined with Madara’s natural intelligence, made Madara into a prodigy on the battlefield. When Madara became clan leader, it was Izuna who talked him out of peace with the Senju clan. Not too long after that, Izuna was killed at the hand of Senju Tobirama. Following the Uchiha tradition, Madara took Izuna’s eyes, which granted him the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, and restored his vision.

However, Madara didn’t just have his family, when he was an adolescent, he made friends with another his age named Hashirama. Though they did not share their surnames with the other, they did eventually find out who the other was. Though they shared the same dream, a dream of peace where children didn’t have to fight, when Madara learned that Hashirama was a Senju, he ended their friendship, so he wouldn’t hesitate to kill him when he time came. This was the betrayal necessary to awaken his Sharingan. The two met on the battlefield often, neither one able to kill the other, even after Madara awoke his Sharingan.

Sometime afterwards, Madara attacked the Senju clan…and was defeated. Hashirama, who still considered Madara a friend, did not kill him, instead offering his own life to end the fighting. This act caused Madara to have a change of heart and peace was finally achieved between the two clans. With the two clan leaders being in a state of friendship again, Konahagakure was founded.

Unfortunately, Hashirama and Madara’s ideas of peace were very different; Hashirama wanted peace via cooperation with the other villages and Madara wanted peace via control. When it came time to pick a leader for Konaha, and Hashirama was chosen, Madara became paranoid, believing the Senju to be attempting a take over of Konaha. This only served to drive him deeper into madness and paranoia. Thus Madara left and returned with Nine Tails and challenged Hashirama; he lost, of course, but not before causing unimaginable damage and death.

Madara, having been defeated was supposedly killed. However he cheated death and went into hiding. During this time he went about working on his plan for world peace, forever. He began watching for someone who could bring him back. He found Nagato, implanted the Rinnean without Nagato knowinh and then faded back into the shadows for some time. However, it simply wasn’t enough. Madara still needed one more person to be him, as he would not be able to live long enough to complete his plan. It was then that he found Obito, badly injured from a fight in the Third Shinobi World War.

According to Uchiha legend, to awaken one’s Sharingan, one must commit an act of betrayal, be it to a friend or family member, most often it’s a betrayal of the best friend. In Madara’s case, this happened when he chose to end his friendship with Hashirama instead of following their dream of peace. There is also a curse upon the Uchihas, called The Curse of Hatred. The name explains it expertly. Madara didn’t fall to the power of the curse as quickly as Izuna did, but after his death Madara became more and more susceptible to it. As many Uchiha’s, Madara possessed an amazing range of skills and a massive intellect.
