Leader of the Foundations/Root
Danzō Shimura is one of the Konoha elders and the leader of the Foundations, or Root in the direct translation.
Danzo's childhood was portrayed as a constant competition with Hiruzen Sarutobi. He is constantly bested by Sarutobi and despised it. Despite being portrayed as a corrupted character, Danzo has good intentions for the best of his village, Konohagakure. During one of the missions, Sarutobi saved him but Danzo shouted at him to accomplish the mission first before saving him. It was this kind of view that was displayed with the Foundations. As their leader and founder he put his view of no feelings when doing a mission to practice. During that same mission, Tobirama Senju or the Second Hokage asked who would like to volunteer to distract the enemy thus putting himself in impending death. Danzo was petrified with fear even though he wanted to volunteer but Sarutobi volunteered first and by that test the Second Hokage named Sarutobi as the third hokage instead of Danzo. At his death before Sasuke, his flashbacks revealed all this along with his intentions to protect Konoha. He blew himself up in an attempt to kill Sasuke and Madara.
Danzo displays much of the characteristics of a old grouchy man. He is innovated at the idea of self sacrifice for the village which he displayed by blowing himself up in an attempt to kill Madara and Sasuke. Though Danzo loves the idea of no feelings getting in the way of a mission, he is shown to have let his fear get in the way of volunteering to sacrifice himself for the village when he was younger. He uses all means to support his ideas of peace for Konohagakure by deceit and absolutionism.
Danzo decided to become one of Orochimaru's subjects where Orochimaru implanted the First Hokage's DNA cells inside Danzo's right shoulder giving him great amounts of chakra and complete control over the wood element. After doing this he was capable of implanting many sharingans in his right arm. These sharingans was never used beyond sacrificing for Izanagi however. Danzo also has Shisui's eye in his right eye implanted but like Kakashi does not have complete use of it and needs constant rest intervals. Shisui's eyes gives him the special ability to divert a person's mind unconsciously.
