Madara is Uchiha, descendant of the older brother.
Hashirama is Senju, descendant of the younger brother.
Nagato is Uzumaki, descendant of the younger brother.
Naruto is Uzumaki too, descendant of the younger brother.
Sasuke is Uchiha, descendant of the older brother.
Maybe Itachi was one of the six paths as well, had the power of the Sage.
And since Sasuke got Itachis eyes, he's prolly 4th and 5th of the Six paths.
And Naruto is the 6th of the Six paths, 6th Hokage, 3rd Jinchuriki of the Kyuubi, 3rd Sage of Toads (? Based on the speculation of Yondaime Hokage being also a sage)
3 Paths from the Older brothers side (Uchiha), 3 Paths from younger brothers side (Senju/Uzumaki)
Madaras true goal is prolly to get all of the six paths power, and become the reincarnation of the Sage of the Six Paths.
