 Kakashi's Story
Kakashi is one of the Hidden Leaf Village's Jonin, and the teacher/sensei of Team 7. He wears a blue-black ninja mask that covers most of his face, except for his eyes and ears, and his Hidden Leaf Village ninja headband skewed on his head, covering his left eye and ear.
At first, Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke think that he's not much of a teacher, or ninja, but when Kakashi places them under his "Survival Training" course, the three Genin realize the value of teamwork in getting the mission done. Kakashi's unique ability is the use of the "Sharingan" in his left eye. It is an ability unique to the Uchiha clan, yet Kakashi is not from Uchiha. The "Sharingan" allows the user to copy and predict the movements of almost any ninja technique used against them. Of course, you would have to see the ability/technique first in order to copy it, and using the Sharingan too much drains a lot of energy from Kakashi's body since he is not from Uchiha. Kakashi is not without his "lighter side", though, as one of his personality quirks is reading some adult novels titled Icha Icha Paradise and Icha Icha Violence. Nothing, not even survival training, can stop Kakashi from reading through the pages just to "see what happens next.” (Note: Icha Icha Paradise was translated to "Make-Out Paradise" in the US version of SHONEN JUMP, but would be more closely translated to "Come Come Paradise" or "Flirting Paradise." ) Hatake Kakashi was the Jonin assigned to train Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura for their real ninja education. He was chosen because he has a talent for sniffing things out and apparently due to the fourth’s request. He is very quick and is very good at ninjutsu. However, he seems to have a strange taste in the reading matter. He's extremely strict, and has never passed anyone before, until Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura came. He seems to empathize on teamwork, and had purposely made a test with instructions that would make them want to work separately. Afterwards, he gives them another chance, and tells Sakura and Sasuke that they may eat their lunch, but they cannot give any to Naruto after he attempted to steal them. However, when both of them gave their lunches to Naruto they passed! Kakashi possesses one Sharingan eye, as stated earlier. This mirror-wheel eye allows him see through illusions and spells, and reflect those powers used to create those illusions and spells back at the one who cast them. It also allows him to discern and copy an opponent's moves. Normally, he keeps his eye covered with his headband (for reasons that you'll find out), and if he exposes his eye to fight an opponent you know the opponent is going to be tough. Kakashi obtained his eye from a friend, Uchiha Obito. Obito pushed Kakashi out of the way of falling boulders, in the process having his right side crushed. Due to an earlier injury to his left eye, Obito requested to their other team mate, Rin the medical ninja, to transfer his remaining left Sharingan eye to Kakashi. Out of respect and sorrow for the death of his comrade, Kakashi visits his grave daily, remembering the horrible incident, this being the reason why he is always late.
Kakashi is a skilled Jonin who was praised for his abilities ever since he became a Genin. With his Sharingan eye, he has copied and mastered many jutsu, mainly water jutsu. Thus he was nicknamed 'The Copy Ninja.' Kakashi has also created some of his own jutsu, like Chidori. He can also summon nin dogs, the most commonly seen would be Pakkun, the pudgy little dog that Kakashi seems to know quite well. Kakashi was able to master the technique Chidori with the help of the Sharingan, otherwise he wouldn't be able to control it and it would damage him. Kakashi's skills are noted so often that the Hokages mention him to be a candidate for the next Hokage, should one of them die.
