'''Haku''' was a villager from the [[Land of Water]], who later became a Ninja after meeting [[Zabuza Momochi]]. Haku has the ability to control two types of nature chakra (most can only control one): water and wind chakra. This gives Haku the ability to use ice chakra which is a mixture of the two. Haku's ability to use ice is the result of Haku's [[kekkei genkai]] known as [[Hyoton]], which is literally translated as "Ice Release" in English.

===Early Life===
 
Haku was born near a snowy village in the Land of Water, a land that had suffered from war not long before. In this war, different sides battled each other using ninja, some of whom possessed [[kekkei genkai]], which are passed down through the generations. After the war ended, memories of the horrific battles still lingered in the minds of the people. Those with kekkei genkai quickly became feared and hated for their ability out of concern that their existence would only bring about more war.

Haku's father and mother were simple farmers, but they lived a peaceful life. They loved each other and were kind to their child. Unfortunately, this all changed one day. The mother was a carrier of a kekkei genkai. She hid this fact from her husband, hoping that the love and peace that was shared in their small family would last forever. One day, Haku discovered the ability to manipulate water. Amazed by this, Haku proudly showed this to the mother, who was horrified by what she saw and harshly scolded Haku for displaying the kekkei genkai's ability. After a slap to Haku's face and a few harsh words, the mother embraced her child and apologized.

He would have done the same to Haku, but before he could, Haku killed him and the others out of reflex using the advanced bloodline's ability to create ice shards.
