For the first twelve years of his life, Naruto Uzumaki is an orphan boy who lived with the apparent unsolicited hate from a majority of the villagers of the Hidden Leaf. Iruka Umino reprimands Naruto for putting graffiti on the Hokage’s face statue and not graduating from the Ninja Academy. Later, Naruto meets Mizuki who asks him to steal a scroll from the Third Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi that contained the arts of his predecessor. That night, Iruka is ambushed by Mizuki, who tells him that used Naruto to get the scroll with the intent to give it to a nation he is to defect to. Mizuki also tells Naruto that he is the host of the Nine-Tailed demon Fox that attacked the village and took the life of the Fourth Hokage and Iruka’s parents. Feeling remorse about his past, Iruka tells Naruto that after his parents were killed by the Nine-Tails, he was a failure like him. Naruto learns the Shadow Clone jutsu from the scroll and defeats Mizuki, before Iruka allows Naruto to graduate.
