The beginning of this story goes back a couple centuries. Yukimura was born during peaceful times in the land of snow. There were no wars with other lands, no violence, crimes. Nothing that would bring the need of shinobi to this peaceful era. He was born into a poor family, with a loving mother and a father, who worked at a farm providing for his wife and new-born son. The name Yukimura came from the child’s pure-white hair, resembling snow and as a young boy he always loved to play with the snow during winter as that was the only period in the year where the whole family could be together. As soon as the snow fade away, his father was gone to farm, to raise the hay.
From very young age, Yukimura was inspired to become like his father. A loving figure, providing for his family. A truly honest and happy man even without riches and glories, as his family was all he ever needed. And to have a loving, faithful wife just like his mother. A truly happy and perfect family. Around the age of ten, he was already helping out his father with the crops as the demand for food in the larger villages suddenly became larger. There were people traveling more often, carrying ninja tools by their waists as there seemed to be somesort of turmoil in the neighbouring lands, ones that were far away from Yukimura’s home village, that seemed so dislocated from the rest of the world, away from harms way. Rumors of one man creating enough chaos to distrupt the balance between the villages were told between villagers.
But life is unfair. Once sought happiness and joy can be lost with just a blink of an eye. The picture of a happy family, parents, their child, torn to pieces. The house? Razed to ashes. An image of a boy crying out-loud infront of the blazing flames, holding the bodies of his parents within his hands. Such was Yukimura’s fate, to witness death of his loved ones, to lose everything he ever held dear to his heart and to fear life itself, as to live was to be meant to be evil and for one to be evil, would one take life. That is what Yukimura learned from his experience, that is what shapeshifted him in an un-imaginable and ugly way as he threw away the happines, good and love. To become a monster who’s story is yet to be untold.
’’Acts of taking are equally evil. We, from the moment of birth, continue to take. Food, people that got involded with us, even our own flesh and blood, For as long as we live, we will continue to slaughter, kill, take. Life is constantly sin. Life itself is evil. I am aware, I am evil and so are you all. Now, come kill me. And I shall do the same.’'
Akatsuki OVA: Past Conflicts
After realizing that secrecy is a hard thing to keep during these times, the founder of the organization had an epiphany. During the times where he was nothing, but a criminal blinded by hatred with revenge being his only goal, he had an ally whom was very close to hint An extremely powerful ally who aided him in combat and treated all of his wounds at amazing paces. Even for a medical ninja, he was extraordinary. He went by the name of Yukimura, as far as the young man could recall. Simply remembering the name brought ominous and haunting images back. However, the young man realized that he has improved drastically in skill and has two allies with him. This time around, he would be the one controlling Yukimura... for the sake of justice.
He decided to tell Crowlock and Itachi Chinome about the whereabouts of his old personal medic, Yukimura. What was described was a horrifying laboratory, which conducted the worst imaginable experiments on various species through apocalyptic and perilous means. A place so ominous and dark, simply visualizing it would make any average man feel an indescribable sickness accompanied by a weird feeling in the stomach.
Crowlock and Itachi decided that it would be in everyone's best interest, if they accompany the leader during the visit of the laboratory. As such, the three shinobi headed towards the location, which was earlier described.
Upon their arrival, Crowlock and Itachi noticed that the laboratory seemed even worse than what was described. Not to mention, the place had an awful smell surrounding the air, which seemed to be almost forcingly intoxicating the lungs of anyone who breathed it in. Breathing any kind of fresh air was nearly impossible, but the leader revealed that, it was nothing but an illusion. As the three of them advanced, the young man was once again reminded of all the disturbing things he had seen inside this very laboratory. The images of innocent beings having their lives taken away right en front of his eyes, still haunted him to this day. As such, he never really liked this place for what it was. Strangely enough though, he had always felt like there was a greater purpose behind all the experiments, although he could never figure out what that purpose was They went deeper and deeper in the hideout, but could not spot the slightest sign of any life remaining.
Everything seemed empty, and nothing had been cleaned up. The place looked exactly the way that the leader remembered it, when he left it. Although, something was fishy. And something had been bugging him for a while now. The laboratory was quiet, but it was never this quiet. Something was definitely off, but what could it be?
Finally, they arrived at a huge door. The leader remembered this door clearly. It was off-limits for everyone, even Yukimura's closest of friends, naturally including the leader himself. The young man stopped walking and looked at the ground for a slight moment. With a bit of a shiver in his body, he said: "It is probably best if I go alone from this point on, for even do not know what lies beyond this door." - Crowlock and Itachi agreed to the statement, but tagged along in secret. As the leader opened the door, he forgot all about his current whereabouts. This room was worse than anything else in the entire laboratory. The distinct reek of blood and signs of dead human flesh lying around in various places disgusted him. This was clearly it... The place where Yukimura conducted his human experiments, despite the fact that he always denied doing so. The leader did not know what to feel, as he was emotionally overwhelmed
Despair... Grief... Sorrow... Agony.. Misery.. Pain... But most of all, rage. Rage towards Yukimura, but the young man knew better than to have an emotional breakdown in this very place. He looked around for any kind of clues, and his eye happened to catch a glimpse of something in the distance. A water tank, which by the looks of it was forcibly opened. And very recently at that, since the floor was soaking wet. However, there was no sign of life to be seen. Had the "experiment" already left the building?
Suddenly a voice could be heard from the distance. A cold voice with no emotions to it, "Careful." Was all of which was uttered, as the sound of three kunai being Rung with incredible speed and precision was heard. And with that, within a mere instant, three bodies were lying at the feet of the leader. They appeared to be Led village shinobi, of which the leader could recognize two. Unfortunately he had no time to get any sort of intel from the bodies, since the suspicious person who had skillfully thrown the kunai was now approaching him.
Itachi and Crowlock noticed that, and to the leader's surprise, they jumped in, revealing themselves. The suspicious person whose gender was hard to identify suddenly started falling back a bit. But it did not seem like the person was scared to the leaden No, on the contrary, he seemed to be luring them. Crowlock and Itachi noticed that as weft, but decided to go for it anyways, believing in their own skill. Itachi and Crowlock jumped up and dashed towards the other person, whom responded tw throwing kunai at Crowlock and using Water release techniques aimed at Itachi. Crowlock deflected the kunai with his air palms and a midair rotation. Itachi knew that using his Fire techniques would be disadvantageous against the water release, so he decided to use his second elemental affinity - lightning, to counter the water techniques being thrown at him.
Itachi and Crowlock seemed to have the upper hand, but suddenly stopped moving as soon as they hit the ground and were about to attack the other person. What looked like a bear trap seemed to have caught on to their feet, rendering them incapable of moving. The person who had proven himself to be very skillful uttered the words: "It's over." with a very monotone and emotionless voice. He seemed almost inhuman.
The leader quickly responded, "You're right." as he held his kunai next to the neck of the person whilst standing behind them. He slit the throat and thought it was over, but the person simply turned in to water - A water substitution? But it did not matter. Crowlock and Itachi were free now and ready to go for round two. The two of them were being careful this time, keeping their distance and staying cautious, while measuring the distance between themselves and the suspicious person on the other side.
As Crowlock was about to initiate the attack, something happened, which caught the attention of everyone currently present. An echoing voice or rather - a laugh. A sinister laugh, which triggered a reaction from the suspicious person and one from the leader as well. It was surprising to see the emotionless person finally have some sort of change in his facial expression, but that is not why the young Man reacted. He reacted simply because the laugh triggered an indescribable rage inside of hem, since this laugh was very reminiscent to that of Yukimura's laugh
As such, he followed the sound of the laugh and flew right past the suspicious person with a Lightning Cutter in his hand. The power started cutting off and on repeatedly, glass tanks exploded left and right, as the sound of a hit was finally heard, however the leader could not see Yukimura or anyone else anywhere, despite feeling the impact or hitting someone: "Yukimura... I will turn that laugh into screams of agony and misfortune.. Just you wait-.." was said in a low tone. With an evil grin, he continued: "The only ones who should kill, are those who are prepared to be killed. Well, Yukimura... Are you prepared for your divine punishment?" - The leader was clearly acting differently, as if he was under some sort of influence from all of his rage. He turned back towards his teammates who happened to notice something different about him. The look in his eye was different, no... The entirety of the eyes were different - the shape, the color, the intensity. Everything. The suspicious person, who was still there mumbled a few words to himself: "Oh .. So it's you..'' After the mumbling of those words, the leader smirked for himself and let out a small laughter, before finally collapsing.
The suspicious person had their eyes locked on to the body of the leader. Crowlock and ltachi took notice of that fact, and used it to their advantage. Within a matter of seconds, Crowlock stealthy knocked the person down from behind with a palm of air, Itachi then surrounded them with waifs of fire to ensure that there would be no escape. As the suspicious person got back up on their feet, multiple techniques were being thrown back and forth, but the suspicious person seemed distraught and distracted, which was a Crowlock did not miss and easily exploited. He happened to get behind the enemy and knocked him on to the ground once again, and decided to lock one of the enemy's arms underneath the sole of his foot white sitting on his body restricting any sort of movement. The suspicious person was not worried about what would happen next, but quietly said while looking at the ground: "He said Yukimura, right?'' - Itachi and Crowlock nodded in response, which led to the following being said: "Yukimura is dead.''
Yukimura is considered to be ''twisted'' by many of those that know him. He feels no remorse when taking someone's life but never kills an innocent person. While considered evil by everyone even by himself, he does understand that the way he does things are to be considered evil but he also believes that in the end what matters the most are the results as he always thrive to make the world a better place. He has a very composed and stoic posture, often not revealing any emotions from his facial expressions though sometimes coming off as disappointed or bored, he also does not seem to feel any affection to other humans, be it a female or male. Although he does show compassion to those who were treated wrong and those who have the potential to become great but lack the courage to do so. He likes to control situations and especially people, being a master at psychological manipulation, those kind of traits also make him a great leader. He is also very cunning and probably one of the brightest beings alive. He is very proud of his vast knowledge in various areas, especially medical ninjutsu and science. When asked what he thought of his comrades he replied, ''Means to an end.'' meaning he does not believe in such bonds. He does believe in wisdom, true courage and power as he highly respects those who possess such qualities.
