Barney was born in a small, 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. 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 abilities, out of concern that their existence would only bring about more war.
Barney lived with his father in a small house. They had an insouciant life and they lived peacefully. Barney never met his mother as she died when she gave him birth. The only memory Barney had about his mother was an old and shredded picture. Barney often asked his father about his mother but he always tried to find a way to avoid the question. His father didn’t like to talk about Barney’s mother because he knew that she was the carrier of the kekkei genkai. Barney was a small kid when he found out that he has the power to manipulate ice. When he discovered it he was scared and horrified and decided to keep it as a secret and never reveal to anyone because all the killing and fighting his village has been through.
To that day there were only two living Yuki members who possessed the rare kekkei genkai, but one day a kid named Haku, whose mother was a carrier of a kekkei genkai found out that he possesses the rare power himself. Haku proudly showed this to his mother, who was horrified by what she saw. She harshly scolded and slapped Haku for displaying his ability, though she tearfully apologized to him afterward. Unbeknownst to them, Haku's father had seen everything from the shadows. When Haku's father discovered that his wife and child possessed a kekkei genkai, he assembled a small mob of villagers, whose part was Barney’s father. With tears flowing down his eyes, he killed his wife. He then attempted to kill Haku. But before he could, Haku used his Ice Release to create several large ice spikes to kill his father and the rest of the mob.
From that day everyone though that Haku was the only left Yuki member and the only carrier of the kekkei genkai. Barney never forgave Haku for killing his father so he decided to train hard and he wanted to confront Haku, one day, and fight him to determine who the strongest Yuki member is and to revenge his father. As years passed Barney was traveling all around the shinobi world and he visited a lot of villages where he stopped for a certain time looking for experienced shinobi in order to improve his skills. On his journey around the shinobi world he also met a lot of other people who helped him, in different ways, to achieve his perfections.
After the night where half of his village was killed, including his father, Barney quickly packed his most essential stuff and ran away with the intention to never come back to his village, leaving all memories behind him. First station was Kirigakure, the Village Hidden in the Mist. He knew that a lot of great shinobi originated from Kirigakure and he wanted to become one too. He heard all those stories about Mizukage Yagura, the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist and the six-tails jinchūriki, Utakata. He looked up to Kisame and wanted to become a great shinobi like him. He knew that with his kekkei genkai he could easily surpass everyone and become the best. Once he entered the city he was amazed by its size and number of people. He knew that it was going to be tough but he had no choice. He started wandering around the city, looking for food in trash cans and stealing from traders in the market. To be able to steal stuff he had to be quick and smart, wait for the right moment. He found this as the first training and he always gave his best. One day he tried to steal an apple from a booth he always used to steal and a mysterious guy caught him. He grabbed his hand and made him throw the apple back. They exchanged a very deep and truthful look and in that moment Barney managed to pluck out his hand out of this guy’s grip and ran away. Later that day, the mysterious man found Barney hiding in an alley, eating an apple. He presented himself as Gobi Gobletsson
and he told Barney that he wanted to teach him taijutsu. At first Barney was confused but then he remembered the look in Gobi's
eyes and decided to join him. Gobi
then took a big red apple out of his pocket and gave it to Barney with a big smile on his face.
As they spent their time together, wandering around the woods and undergoing a tough regime, Barney’s physical strength rose and Barney became faster and aware of his capabilities. Once Gobi
decided that Barney is top fit he started teaching Barney some real taijutsu techniques. He enjoyed watching while Barney repeated all those moves over and over again. Eventually Gobi
ran out of teachable techniques and he told Barney that he enjoyed his company and that he has to return back to his village, but he offered him an escort to the Village Hidden in the Clouds. There he met up with Dei Dei
who took him as his student and taught him everything he knew about lightning. Even though Barney enjoyed Dei Dei’s
company he didn’t like the lightning element that much. He always knew that water is going to be his main element and he felt the connection with water from his first steps.
After mastering lightning he took out his Shinobi World map and his two kunai. He placed the map on a tree and threw the kunai. Where the kunai lands, that would be his next stop. The choice fell on Kirigakure, the city where he started from. Three years passed since the event, but he had it behind him, long ago. He clenched his fists and teeth and left Kumogakure. On his way, back to Kirigakure he met a funny guy named Zancrow
. They were the total opposite of each other and that’s why they became so good friends. Barney really needed a friend to share all his stories and someone to laugh with. He was finally happy that he found someone like Zancrow
. The trip to Kirigakure was pretty fast and once he entered the city he noticed that nothing changed. He stood on the same place as three years ago, looking at the same picture. They agreed that the first thing they need to do is, looking for a place to stay. They found a small shack for a few miserable Kumi. Second thing to do was looking for some food. Across the street was a ramen shop, perfect place, they both agreed. As they entered the ramen shop and ordered their food, they noticed a mysterious woman, sitting in the corner and talking silently to herself. They started staring at her and she felt it. Suddenly she turned her head and gave them a scary look from which shocked them both. It was a very drunk lady by the name Leaf
. As they got their food she invited them to her table and they had to accept the invite, or else they knew that things wouldn’t end well for them. As they finished their meal and found out that Leaf
is a Sensei they asked her if she could teach them water techniques and she gladly accepted it, but with one condtion: they have to find her a place to sleep. Luckily their rooms were right across the street, so they carried her to Barney’s room. Barney decided to spend the night outside so he found a nice tree and made himself comfy. In the morning Zancrow
woke him up and told him that Leaf
is gone and that she left a note. It said: “Sorry guy’s I had some important business to finish, thanks for the room!” They agreed that she won’t escape easily with this and they found her later that evening in a bar, drunk again. They took her back to the room but this time they booth decided to stay and watch over. In the morning they caught her while trying to sneak out and in order to stop her Barney had to use the Lightning Release Technique, creating a few small lightning balls directed at Leaf
. As they hit her she fell on the ground, paralyzed. “No escaping, this time” they said and when Leaf
came back to normal she agreed to teach them. They started the training on a nearby lake, and their first task was to walk over the lake without getting wet. The guys found it impossible so Leaf
had to demonstrate it. After many tries they finally made it, which made Leaf
proud. They spent almost six months training with Leaf
. They pranked her constantly and Barney loved to add a bit of lightning to his water techniques in order to electrocute the water and make the attacks stronger. The day came when Zancrow
had to leave them and return back to his village. Barney stood there with Leaf
, watching his best friend leaving, but he faced it. That is reality and it sometimes hurts and there was nothing he could do. Leaf
told Barney that she’d like to teach Barney earth techniques too, which Barney accepted with pleasure. They started the hard work and after several months Barney was able to protect himself easily against any upcoming danger. The time came for Barney to split up with Leaf
and continue his mission, to become the greatest shinobi ever.
He decided that his next stop would be Konoha, the greatest of Five Great Shinobi Villages. Just before the entrance gate he stumbled upon a tall man, called Nocturnal
. He was wearing a weird cloak with a huge sign, which meant Myobokuzan. He asked the tall guy about the place and he told him that he is on his way there, right now and that he can show him, if he wants to. He decided to join the cloaked man. Once they arrived, Barney couldn’t believe his eyes. It was the most beautiful place he ever saw with his eyes. A place of utopia, land of the toads, Mount Myobokuzan. Nocturnal
wanted to introduce Barney with the other toads, Crocodile
, Damon Salvatore
, Sheldon Cooper
and finally their Pa, Gamahiro
. The time he spent with them was the best time of his life. All the good and bad memories, funs and laughs, ups and downs. They became something very special to Barney and he decided never to forget them. During his stay in Myobokuzan, Nocturnal
showed Barney some fire techniques, which he mastered easily, making Nocturnal
proud and happy. One day, suddenly, a strange person appeared at Mount Myobokuzan and wanted to talk with their Pa, Gamahiro
. After the long and exhausting talk Gamahiro
told his little tadpoles that they are forced to leave because a certain someone is after the secret powers, lying underneath Mt. Myobokuzan. The person that came to warn Gamahiro
. He wanted to destroy Mt. Myobokuzan in order to conceal the powers and destroy them once and for all, in order to stop the evil guy from obtaining them.
Before he left Myobokuzan he brought his slaves The Doctor
With a sad heart and tears in his eyes Barney had to leave Mt. Myobokuzan and he couldn’t forget the fact that he could never come back to the place that made him so happy. His desperation brought him to Amegakure, the Village Hidden in the Rain. The rain was the best way to describe his current feelings and his sadness. There he met a guy called Faith
, who was an expert with water techniques. Barney decided that he wanted to improve his skills with water as it was his elemental affinity and his favorite element. Faith
taught him a lot of useful tricks and showed him all advanced techniques afterwards calling Barney a master of water techniques. With only one element left to learn he made his way to Sunagakure, the Village Hidden in the Sand. There he met with Oraan Nguyen
who agreed to teach him wind techniques and after a couple of months of hard training Barney was almost at the end, until a strange event occurred. While executing an attack on Oraan’s
clones Barney suddenly switched to the real one and attacked him, which almost killed Oraan
. They ended in a fight, and one of them would probably die if Sunagakure guards didn’t stop them. Barney had to leave Sunagakure and once again he made his way to Amegakure, where he wanted to spend the rest of his life.
Once he entered Amegakure, two unknown shinobi appeared in front of him and easily defeated him. He woke up in a small cellar and had no clue what was going on. The cell doors opened and his formed Sensei Gobi Gobletsson
appeared. He jumped on his feet out of happened and hugged Gobi
. He was happy to see him, after all this years. He asked Gobi
why did he lock him in a cell and Gobi
just smiled, without answering the question. Barney told him about all his stories and experiences, about Zancrow
, Mt. Myobokuzan and even the accident with Oraan
laughed very hard when he heard about the accident, which made Barney very ashamed and uncomfortable. Gobi
, then, offered Barney to finish off his wind training and test him for rain afterwards. Barney couldn’t reject that offer. They started working immediately and Barney finished wind in about a month. The big day was coming and Barney was preparing hard for the test. He had to fight Gobi
! His master! He was so thrilled that he couldn’t sleep the day before the test.
The clock ticked noon and Gobi
attacked Barney with a Waterfall Basin, taking Barney into air and he took the chance to use the Wind Stream Technique in order to change his direction while in mid air by simply blowing air out of his mouth. It was a great battle, with both attacking and both defending and it was uncertain who would win till the very end of the battle. Barney already had his sharks rushing towards Gobi
, while he was trapped underwater but Gobi
once again proved that he is a real master by using a forbidden technique called Plungepool Tornado. Gobi
was happy to announce that Barney passed the test. That was one of the biggest days in his life, fighting against his teacher and almost defeating him. It was good that he didn’t kill him, or else no one would be able to teach him rain techniques. After the battle Barney decided to take a short break of a few weeks and he decided that he was ready he knocked on Gobi's
opened the door and Barney saw Dr. House
, his future colleague and partner in training. He was happy because he recalled the times he had training together with his friend Zancrow
Sensei. After a few months of hard and wet training, due to the constant rain, Barney got sick and had to stop the training. He decided to stay at home for some time until he gets better. It took him almost six months to get back in shape and to be able to continue his training, thanks to The Doctor
he recovered completely. Gobi
was long gone when he wanted to continue his training. No trace of him, no nothing. Barney, thirsty for knowledge as he was, he went to Konohagakure where he met a smexy guy called Scorps
showed to be a great person and a great friend and they became really good friends. Since Scorps
was an Elder, he decided to take Barney as his personal student and teach him everything he knows. They started off with genjutsu, a very powerful and useful set of techniques. Barney showed great progress, and at present day he is at B-rank genjutsu techniques.
