Background

Little hana

Hana as child.

Hana was born into a simple non-shinobi family. She lived alone with her mother. Her home village was small and near to the Great Takivillage. In the past war the Village recieved help from the people of Takigakure. The most people called the village "Little-Taki"Many of them stayed here after the war. One of them was Hana's father. Even though the order has been restored, the Village was still haunted by individual groups. Her father was one of the men which helped to stop the thugs from intimidating the villagers. This worked for a while, until a new group of thugs turned up. It turned out they were Shinobi funded by Gatō which wanted to destabilize the country to spread his business to Takigakure. On this mission her father and another men were betrayed by their teammates, which were bought by Gato. Her father was declared missing in action.

Since then Hana was left alone with her mother. Both of them moved to a new home, so they won't be remembered about their loss. One day Hana was listening to the old peoples stories about the brave Taki-Shinobi which were fighting in the war to protect their brothers and sisters in the village. That inspired Hana to become a Shinobi herself. Although her dream was far away at this moment in time, also her mother did not want her to become a Shinobi because of the danger.

Hana often helped her mom with the garden, she really liked to do that, it gave her time to think about bad and good things. Later Hana and her team went to Konoha to participate in the Chūnin Exams

 Part I

Early in the series, Hana was a interested and bright girl, which wanted to increase her knowledge and strength. Because of her small appearance she always was limited in her taijutsu abilities. Since she had no one to help her, she had to do all by herself. Hana was somewhat a outsider in the Taki-Academy, because she didn't have a family with a family-tree full of Shinobi like the other kids or parents who could help them with their ninja way. Hana was often bullied and picked on for her lack of "Shinobi-blood" and the fact that her father was not a Shinobi. Hana also was jealous of some students which had Kekkei Genkais and proudly talked about that. Not wanting to to be left out of the conversation Hana started to try and match or even outmatch their abilities. She also became somewhat obsessed with Hiden Ninjutsu's. Yet she failed greatly at this time and has somewhat become a loner. And even after mastering the Blue Flame Art  , she is still was self-conscious and still questions her abilities, which is sometimes holding her back.


The Exams

Hana has meet her Teammates (Kamui and Samui) in Takigakure where she attended the Taki-Ninja-Academy. And later travelled to Konoha for the Chunin-Exams.

Ibiki’s exam was hard for her, she didn't had special skills for cheating. To her luck she could answer most of the questions in the test with her own knowledge. But she did not really get the real test. 

The exam in the Forest of Death would not have been so hard, if it was not for the feeling of being followed which has given her goosebumps. The plan was to slip up to find the scroll faster and to meet after a specific amount of time. Her team mates Kamui and Samui found the scrolls without much trouble, but these were not the ones they needet. Hana could find a scroll as well, it was the one they needet and it was lying on a fallen tree. Without listening to her gut feeling Hana went right into a trap of Team Dosu. Which wanted to make a fun out of her misery because they were bored waiting for Sasuke. By having doubts about herself and this unbelievable situation she was being in, Hana had to take a lot of abuse. Remembering her motivations of becoming a Shinobi she could at last protect herself and even use some Nin-Jutsus. While Team Dosu was surprised by her defense, Kamui and Samui arrived in time to get her away from danger. In the confusion and the dust of some Smoke Bombs Samui send their way, they could even manage to steal their scroll away. Meanwhile Shiore watched interested in the darkness of the forest. Later on Team Dosu swore revenge for this disgrace. (...) 

After the Exams were interrupted by Orochimarus Attack and her Team mates and Sensei died. Hana has decided to stay in Konohagakure.


Tsunades Fight against Kabuto

Hana vs Kabuto

Hana manages to reanimate her heart with a lightning technique, which was inspired by Kakashi's Chidori.

In Episode #93-95 Hana, Naruto and Jiraya came for Tsunade's aid. Kabuto has paralysed Tsunade due to her fear of blood. While Jiraya battles Orochimaru. Naruto, Shizune and Hana are left to protect Tsunade. Kabuto is more than capable of dealing with Naruto and Shizune, and after making quick work, his attention returns back to Tsunade which is guardet by Hana. Hana tries to protect Tsunade, but she is in an disantventage against Kabutos Tai-Jutsu. After Kabuto hits Hana in the chest her heart starts flickering and stops beating. Naruto who is finally awake sees Hana sink to her knees and attacks Kabuto with his Rasengan. Kabuto is trying to heal himself after bein hit with the Rasengan, but the wounds are to extensive. However he managed to wound Naruto badly as well. Naruto sends a glance to Hana which is lying unconscious on the ground. Thinking Hana is already dead Kabuto starts moking Hana and Naruto, just to realise later that Hana managed to reanimate herself with a Lightninh-technique which she uses against herself.

Relationship with team 7 

Hana Tanaka

Hana laughing about Naruto's silliness.

Because of a fortunity Hana's apartment was near to Naruto's, so they already met a while before the Exams started. It was a nice for her to know someone who can show her around the village. Naruto and Hana often hang around, or meet at the roof to eat ramen while looking up to the stars. Hana was quiet shy at this time, but Naruto's attitude has helped her to open up faster to him. Through the friendship with Naruto she meet Sakura and Sasuke, Sasuke didn't liked her at all, he thought she will be another millstone around the neck. But Sakura liked her even more and she was very happy that she wasn't the only girl in the team anymore. Later Hana and Sasuke where send on a mission together, with the reason that their skills complete each other. Trully it was for the teams cohesion. It was a rainy day and the two had an argument on the mission. They found a dry place in a cave, where they waited for the end of the rain. After a while the two began to talk and they actually found some stuff they had in common, which was that they wanted to become stronger. Hana and Sasuke deveoped a friendly rivality, a little bit like Naruto and Sasuke had. The difference was that they had really good fighting countability and were almost invisible when fighting together. Which helped them both to get stronger.   After Sasuke decidet to go with Orochimaru the friendly rivality dissapeared. Hana lost all respect for Sasuke because he did not want to become stronger on his own.


Team 7 and hana

Mission accomplished!

Personality

Hanas personality is defined by her distance, she sometimes appears of being in thoughts and not paying attention to the world around her. This is also the reason why she laughs and smiles at random times. She is creative, she sets goals for herself, she will work hard to accomplish them. But at the same time loses interest easily. However she prefer that her efforts remain private, this tendency only adds to her mystery and intrigue. She enjoys the supernatural. Her friends and family appreciate her loving personality, even though they are sometimes frustrated with the emotional distance she choose to keep. Like with her mother with which she barely has contact since she lives in Konohagakure. On the other hand, Hana can get depressed fast, she is uncooperative, unforgiving, selfish and sometimes unpredictable.  


After Joining the Anbu Hana has become much more distand to everyone, this also made her lonely.

After long consideration Tsunade has let Hana join the ANBU, although still in doubt if Hana wanted to join for the right reason or only for validation of her usefulness. The fact that Hana and Naruto has helped in the fight against Kabuto, was a considerable factor of letting her join. Shortly after she has started to undergo the standard ANBU training and went on her first missions.

Hanas Anbu Info

Shippuden Ep. #47 in which Sai gave all Informations about the Anbu to Kabuto.

Abilities

Hana's is really fascinated by Ninjutsu's. And after much training she could finally compete with the other genin in her age. She was not really interested in the normal shool studying, she wanted to learn things which where more interesting and more uncommon, something like the Hiden-Ninjutsus . She loves to watching other Shinobi fight, she thinks that she can learn a lot out of observing different fighting styles and also to know the tricks of possible enemies. Hana usually tries to save chackra by manipulating the enviroment rather than preforming it herself. After spending time with team 7 Hana has observed some of their training methods and found out that her and Sasuke had familiar Nature Types, then she also started to develop her Lightning-Release and Fire-Release techniques. And even after years inbetween part I & part II they still had smilier development in their abilities she also has absolved the standart Anbu Training. In part II Hana was able to burn big areas and invoke powerfull lightnings. In her excile time Hana had to fight some powerfull Shinobi, which gave her more expirience. This also came with learning new Jutsus which some of them were forbidden. She also poseses some Hero Water from her home Takigakure, which can increase Chara imensely, but which Hana leaves for emergency.


Blue Flame Art

Blue Flame Art (青い 火技, Aoi Hiwaza) can be described as an advanced style of Fire Release. It is not clear if this technique is a Hiden-Jutsu or a Kekkei Genkai.  The blue flames are characterized by their intense heat.
Scientifically speaking, blue fire is the hottest natural occurring fire, as it occurs in the hottest parts of a flame. While Water Release can extinguish the blue fire, it would take a rather massive amount of it.
It is possible to form flames into animals like snakes, lions, dragons etc.

Medical Ninjutsu

Her knowledge about medicine is limited to the basics. But after own injuries in the past, Hana had shown herself to be able to heal small injuries with moderate effort. In addition Hana is wearing a flower whose blossoms have a lightly refreshing effect on the person wearing it and it nourishes the body when it is eaten.


Kuchiyose no Jutsu

Hanas Summon Kuraiko

Hana's Summon Kurai in his small form.

Her summons is a big raven called Kurai which can dissolve into many different sized raven. They act as seekers and can attack in a group picking a person to death. He does not talk much and does not like to be bothered. Kurai usually mixes in with other birds to sees and listen, mostly unnoticed. Hana usually flies on Kurai to long distantce missions or to get out of danger. He is also able to use his Nature-Types Fire and Wind.            


Nature Transformation

Hana is particularly skilled in Fire Release followed by Lightning Release techniques, which she can use in a smiliar way to Sasuke, because she can create purple electricity . Hana was skilled eneugh in Fire Release to use the Blue Fire Art  technique. She is less advanced in Water Release, although she improved a lot inbetween part I and part II, since then she is able to use more advanced Jutsus like the Water Release: Water Severing Wave. Coming from the Land of Water Hana learned to stay underwater for quiet a while. Usually Hana analyses and uses the surroudings to her adventage. In areas with water Hana rather relies on her Lightning Release. Hanas Nin-Jutsus which have anything to do with dragons like her Blue Flame Art: Azure Dragon, Lightning Release: Dragon Strike and Water Release: Dragon Bullet, have bocome her trademark. If she has to use Tai-Jutsu Hana has to combine it with the Lightning Release Chakra Mode, but if possible she much rather fights from a distance.
