Hinata Uzumaki (formerly Hyuga) is a kunoichi of Konohagakure's Hyuga clan, and a member of Team 8 who suffers from a lack of self-confidence. Though born into the Hyuga clan's main house and raised to become the heiress of the clan, Hinata's shyness and inability to stand up for herself resulted in the strong disapproval of her father Hiashi after being defeated by her younger sister Hanabi who became their father's successor. Hinata was then disowned by Hiashi and placed in the care of Kurenai Yuhi. Under Kurenai's guidance, Hinata began training to become strong in both skill and will in order to prove her worthy. Hinata's growing self-confidence mostly comes from her long-standing admiration for Naruto, as she is inspired by his enthusiasm and is unyielding determination to never give up. As the series Naruto progresses, Hinata's admiration towards Naruto eventually grows into love. During Part II, Hinata confesses her feelings to Naruto while protecting him from Pain and later assists him during the Allied Ninjas' battle with the Ten-Tails. Following the end of the Fourth Great Shinobi War, and the events of The Last: Naruto the Movie where she carries out the will of her ancestor Hamura Otsutsuki by helping Naruto stop Toneri, Hinata marries Naruto and they have two children by the series epilogue. Her voice actress in the Japanese anime is Nana Mizuki, and her English voice actress is Stephanie Sheh.
Early Life EditHinata is the oldest daughter of Hiashi Hyuga. When she was still a child, Hinata was almost kidnapped by the-then Head of Kumogakure, who was visiting Konoha under the guise of signing a peace treaty between their two villages. Hiashi killed him and saved Hinata, setting in motion the events that would become known as the "Hyuga Affair".
Because Hiashi was the head of the Hyuga clan, Hinata was raised to be its heiress and her family expected great things from her. But even at a young age, her father came to believe that Hinata was not suited for the role of heiress, as she struggled under his gruesome training regime, and, he also believed that her timid personality prevented her from truly excelling. When Hinata's younger sister Hanabi started displaying superior talent, he began to reconsider Hinata's selection as heiress. In the anime, Hinata and Hanabi were pitted against each other to determine who would one day lead the Hyuga. Because Hinata was unwilling to harm Hanabi - a hesitation Hanabi did not share - she was defeated, disappointing her father. Hinata was then disinherited and turned over to the care of Kurenai Yuhi.
Chakra Prowess Edit
In the anime, Hinata begins training to improve her chakra control during Part I; one of the earliest products of her training is her ability to make Water Needles by forming her chakra around nearby water sources, making it into a projectile. By Part II, Hinata's chakra prowess has advanced enough to match a medical-nin's, for which reason she is assigned to help perform the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier. With her Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists, she could drain an opponent's chakra.
Hinata inherited some of his chakra because she is a member of the Hyuga clan's main house.
Byakugan EditAs a Hyuga, Hinata possesses the Byakugan, a dojutsu that grants her penetrative vision in a near 360 degrees around herself. With it, she is able to

When she shows up there, Naruto and their children have yet to arrive, so she returns home to find them.
