Haku

 

Haku: The Tool
The Country of Mist has had its share of civil wars and has always
used their Shinobi with Advanced Bloodlines as the primary weapons.
Over time, those with "Advanced Blood" came to be hated and feared.
This forced those with advanced bloods into hiding in order to live in
peace. Haku was one of the few people in the Mist with Advanced Blood
left.
When Haku was just a young child, his father discovered that his wife
was part of an Advanced Bloodline. Haku's father proceeded to kill his
mother and then went after him. In Haku's fright, he killed his father
and fled his small village, believing himself to be a monster: a
monster loved by no one.

On one faithful day, Haku looked up from where he sat on a bridge to
see a Shinobi staring down at him, this Shinobi was Zabuza. Haku then
proclaimed, "You have the same eyes as me". Zabuza realized that Haku
was one of the Advanced Bloodline limit carriers, and took the child
under his wing. Haku was raised by Zabuza as "a tool" to be called
upon when needed in exchange for his "freedom" from the those that
hated him. He learned how to use his unique abilities and eventually
became a Hunter-Nin. When Zabuza's plan to kill Mizukage fails, Haku
fled the village along with Zabuza to fulfill his job as "a tool."

Haku's slender frame and delicate appearance enables him to disguise
himself in various ways. In fact, while finding medicine to treat
Zabuza's wounds Haku runs into Naruto. Naruto mistakenly believes Haku
is a girl. As we see in the ensuing brawls, it is not appearance that
determines strength. Rather, under that soft face we see that Haku has
a knack for speed and Jutsu skill. Combined with his knowledge of the
human body, Haku can target his opponent's vital organs and kill them
instantly using pinpoint accuracy. The main choice to attack these
vital organs is with simple needles that are used by physicians in the
battle field.

Haku's bloodline originates in the country of Mist so it is no
surprise that his Jutsus are water based. His "Flying Water Needles"
is a technique where he uses his chakra to create ice needles via
water on the ground. Furthermore, he uses his chakra to control the
path of the needles and strike the enemy. His other technique,
"Demonic Ice Mirrors" uses water to create ice mirrors to surround the
enemy. He then combines himself with the mirrors and uses the
reflection to transport himself from mirror to mirror while attacking
his enemy from all angles (he uses this attack on Naruto and Sauske).
His most incredible ability however, is the ability to do one-handed
seals (which we see him do while blocking an attack). This allows him
to complete various tasks that are not capable of being accomplished
without having a free hand.

Although Haku is an exceptional fighter, he is a kind ninja who is
saddened by unnecessary death. His fighting spirit comes from the will
to protect his most "precious person," because "when a person has
something precious to protect, that is when they can become truly
strong." Which is exactly what Haku tell Naruto before he fights him
and Sauske. Haku unfortuantly dies after the fight, he makes it seem
like he killed Sauske who saves Naruto's life that way which causes
Naruto to be enraged and unleash for the first time the power of the
ninetails fox demon. Naruto however doesn't kill him the person who
does is Kakashi hitting him with his chidori which was for Zabuza.
