THE UCHIHA CLAN descended from the elder of the two sons of the Sage of the Six Paths. The elder brother inherited the Sage’s “eyes”, powerful chakra and spiritual energies. When it came time for the Sage to choose a successor, he questioned the two on what course of action they would follow to bring order to the world. The elder believed that power was the way to bring peace, while the younger believed love was the way. The Sage favoured the ideal of the younger brother, and therefore designated the younger as his successor, causing the elder to be filled with jealousy and hatred. From this hate came what’s called the Curse of Hatred. However, the Uchiha suffered another more dangerous curse: a passionate love that can become a bottomless well of despair the moment the one they care for most is dead.
