    Earth Village (33 A.S.) The Earth Village was a village founded on the interest of science and the development of society. It was created by an aspiring young Ginrei Tekken who was a philosopher and inventor. Although not a shinobi like most village leaders, his brains is what helped the village progress and prevented it from being wiped out by the Major Villages. Ginrei's brain was essential to the progression of other villages as he invented many things from everyday appliances like light bulbs, ovens, and electricity wires to things that shinobi use such as ear pieces and cameras. These inventions and the mass production of them by the Earth Village is what lead them to thrive, and even fight off occasional attempts to destroy them. With more and more attempts by shinobi to invade and take over his village, Ginrei eventually grew tired, secluding the village from the rest of the world by thick layers of mazes surround it. He began to see just how ruthless shinobi war, and came to the conclusion that it was best to stay out of the war, and not even try to gain anymore territory. He chose to not to become consumed by greed and was content with what he had till his last days. His beliefs were passed onto the current leader of the village who assumed the title Ishi Daijin. The modern Earth Village is a very isolated and richly cultured village that values peace and fortitude above all else. Wind Village (5 A.S.) Unlike other villages, the Wind Village was very anti-communicative with other villages, being very independent, not because they had anything against the other villages, but because they strongly believed they were fine on their own and believed in detaching themselves from worldly concerns. They were primitive but wise people, being very spiritual and ultimately free of stress, anger, and other things that caused conflict in the rest of the world due to their habit of daily meditation and hosts of occasional significant ceremonies held in the temples. The people of the Wind Village were native people of the islands that the Wind Village consists of. They had no form of leadership, but instead split various roles between the people of the tribe. Roles that consisted of hunters, high monks, caretakers (for children), cooks, and architects. Being highly spiritual and believing in honesty, they held no lies or secrecy between them, sustaining a very strong civilization. Because of that, they were forgiving people, even when part of their territory got taken by the Flame. Realizing the immigration of shinobi into their village, the Wind Village inhabitants were left with no choice but to adopt the shinobi system to stay alive, and protect from future threats. With that happening, their form of government also changed, now adopting the shinobi system used by other villages. This first leader of this new system would be the current one, Sōhei Nijiro. The modern Wind Village is a very migrant and highly spiritual village that values honesty and virtue above all else.

    Flame Village (54 A.S.) The roots of the Flame Village are laden with oppressive tyranny and brutal enslavement. It was not always the beacon of freedom and progress, as it is known to be today. The first Hikage established the village with the intention of constructing a safe zone for those shinobi who wished to hone their talents, without risk of being attacked or murdered. Her name was Amaterasu Kemuri, and at first only shinobi were welcomed into the Flame Village; it remained this way for the entirety of her reign as leader. However, upon her death another shinobi took up the helm of Hikage, a man by the name of Kasai Mokutan. Under his rule, the Flame Village took a nose-dive economically and militarily. They were being pushed around by other villages on the world stage and were quickly beginning to lose their foothold as a major shinobi village. In order to avoid the seemingly inevitable, Hikage Mokutan began to allow non-shinobi admittance into the village. Once he had gathered enough, he forced them into servitude as slaves who spent their days mining and hunting, gathering raw resources to export to other villages; rather, those of the civilians who were fortunate. Many were used as livestock, having their chakra harvested from them into seals to grant the flame shinobi all the power they needed to win the great shinobi war, and reclaim crucial territory around their capital. After the first war ended, sentiments in the village began to shift and with it, those civilians who still lived. The shinobi and civilians stood united against Kasai, abdicating him of his position and replacing him with last Hikage in 88 A.S, briefly after the end of the Great Shinobi War. With this transition of power, came the abolition of slavery in the flame, as well as drastic changes in both economic and social domestic policy. It was not until 104 A.S. that the current Hikage ascended to power, replacing the last after their untimely demise. The modern Flame Village values freedom and passion above all else, and is driven by the profits of a free market. Water Village (32 A.S.) The Water Village has had a clouded and complicated history, as well as a strained relationship with its people. The Mizukage holds absolute power and authority over the entirety of the Water Village, and this power has gone unchecked throughout its extensive existence. It has always been a strict and brutal village, although it is done with the purpose of strengthening its people and teaching them to act independently and with their own strength. It is known throughout the shinobi world for its deadly tournaments and lack of concern for the lives of its people. It has always been ridden with crime and poverty, the former of which being dominated by crime-based clans involved in the smuggling and distribution of both people as well as illegal drugs. These issues made the great shinobi war strenuous for the Water Village, only contributing more to both the poverty and crime that had plagued them for so long. When the second Mizukage took the reigns, following the untimely death of the first, he vowed not to make the same mistakes that his predecessor had. Rather than oppose the criminal clans and waste valuable resources fighting them, he joined them hand in hand with the hopes of establishing a better village. It was through these relations that the Water Village was able to hold their own in the great shinobi war and go on to capture copious amounts of land in the process. His name was Kori Kaiyo, but despite his military success, he was abdicated soon after by high-ranking shinobi in the village. The current Mizukage proceeded his rule, and the ties with the criminal clans were all severed. Territory that had previously been handed over to them, such as Noumu Harbor, were taken back by the village and secured soon after. The modern Water Village values loyalty and power above all else, and is driven by village bureaucracy. Lightning Village (25 A.S.) The history of the Lightning Village is one founded in battle and camaraderie. Those of the lightning village usually regarded one another as brothers and sisters of the same home. The village, now known as Kaminari Village, was originally founded by Kumotta Sorarai as a safe place for his family of shinobi to live and train safely. Located deep in the Hiraishin Mountains, the small settlement was built in the mysterious forest oasis known as Kami Shinrin. Their settlement quickly grew into a vast village as battle-hardened shinobi from across the world gathered to join what they had heard was the best place for those who valued physical strength and prowess. The village welcomed any who could earn the respect of the Raikage in battle, which resulted in many clans joining the fray of the great shinobi war alongside the Lightning Village, wishing to prove their worth in combat. By the end of the war, the Lightning Village had accumulated a surplus of territory, and had recruited many clans, like the famed, yet reclusive Kouga Manjidani Clan, into their ranks. The first Raikage soon fell ill, however, and after a time passed on. The village immediately descended into chaos as those closest to the Raikage vied for the position, wishing to grab the power and influence for themselves. Civil War broke out throughout the Lightning Village and bloodshed became a common occurrence within the territories. By the end, however, the Kouga Manjidani clan suppressed all contenders, deciding to take the mantle of leadership for themselves as to maintain peace and stability. Although the clan leader had no intention of seizing the position for their self, the clan appointed the leader as the next Raikage and established a rule to be marveled at. The clan still maintains major influence to this day, though relinquished their claim to ruling. Traditionalists at heart, they re-established the method of the testing and voting for a new Raikage. Only recently did the village appoint their new leader, the youngest leader in the village's known existence and ironically the leader of the Kouga Manjidani clan. His inauguration to the position of leadership was deemed a new start for the Lightning Village, thus the title of Denkikage was granted to him. A new title to match the new era the village was moving towards. The modern Lightning Village values will power and personal strength above all else, and is driven by the thrill of battle.
