When Sasuke was attending Konoha's Ninja Academy, instructors often referred to him as the "Number One Rookie" becuase his skills far exceeded those of his classmates. Sasuke is one of two surviving members of the Uchiha clan, which was once the most powerful family in the Leaf Village. The other survivor is Sasuke's older brother, Itachi Uchiha, the man responsible for single-handedly killing all the other members of the Uchiha clan. For that reason, Sasuke has proclaimed himself as an avenger, his only goal in life is to become strong enough to kill his brother. Sasuke is a lone wolf, he initially saw his teammates, Naruto and Sakura, as hindrances. In many occasions, Sasuke took on enemies by himself instead of relying on team work. Sasuke is excellent in hand-to-hand combat, often using speed and agility to surprise his foes. For a shinobi of such a young age, Sasuke has mastered very complex jutsus as a genin.
At the end of part I, Sasuke's lust for revenge against his brother Itachi drives him to accept Orochimaru's offer. Although he knows Orochimaru only wants to use his body for his next host, Sasuke is willing to make the sacrifice as long as he gains the power needed to finally kill his brother. But nearing the day of the body transfer, in a surprising move, Sasuke turned on Orochimaru and defeated him in his own dimension. He then set about gathering members from Orochimaru's organization to form his own team, Snake. The four man team consists of Suigetsu, Karin, Jugo and Sasuke himself. Sasuke created the team for the sole purpose of helping him track down and killing Itachi.
