Kushina Uzumaki is the mother of Naruto Uzumaki, Kasumi Uzumaki and Natsumi Uzumaki. She is remarked for her exceptional beauty as well as skills as a kunoichi. Her origins lie in Uzushiogakure.
Born in Uzushiogakure, Kushina only went through the basics of Uzushiogakure's original training before the village was destroyed during the second great shinobi war.
During the attack Kushina was in Konohagakure to visit her grand aunt Mito Uzumaki, and hence survived. Left without any other choice, Kushina decided to make the most out of life as a kunoichi in Konoha.
Kushina is a woman well-known for her beauty. Her skin is fair and her eyes are ocean blue. She had a slender but highly feminine build. As an adult she usually wears an high-collared, sleeveless loose-fitting dress with an apron over it, a black band on her left wrist and standard sandals.
She has long, bright-red hair, a common trait amongst the members of the Uzumaki clan, that reached down to her calves, with strands that framed both sides of her face, with the left one being parted by a hair clip. In her childhood, she had a round face which with her red hair made her look like a tomato. She also wore kimono-like plain blouse with loose sleeves, dark skirt and tight dark stockings.
Her life in Konoha:
Kushina was mistreated as an 'outsider' since the moment of her arrival in Konoha, and never managed to mingle much with others due to her 'strange' hair color. Regardless of this, she never lost confidence in herself and struck back against those who tried to bully her, regardless of their skill level.
When she first attended the class in Konoha Academy, she declared her future goal to be the first female Hokage, and was ridiculed by the other students for even hoping for it. She later found out that the dream was futile since only someone born in Konoha could ever run for the Hokage position.
Due to her nature of striking back against those who bully her, sometimes genin picked on her as revenge. More than once she was beaten down and ridiculed, only to get up again and win to preserve her dignity. Though her life was tough, she preserved.
A certain incident during her final days as an academy led her to befriending Namikaze Minato, whom she later married and had three kids with.
It was during the birth of twins the Kyuubi struck Konoha, and Minato decided to sacrifice the twins for the sake of the village. Kushina was against this decision, and it was the final straw that ended her loyalty to Konohagakure.
Kushina's proficiency with swords make her one of the best known Kenjutsu masters in the elemental nations. She carries the legendary sword, Fire Fang - which is said to be able to incinerate anything its blade can pass through within moments.
She is highly respected as one of the last practitioners of the deadly dance of whirlpool kenjutsu technique, after her home country whirlpool's annihilation.
One of her ninjutsu-kenjutsu combo, the 'Red Whirlpool', have made her famous as the 'Whirlpool's Red Death'.
Her combined skills as a kunoichi have earned her an S-rank in the bingo books, which is awarded only to the best of the best.
