Me and a number of friends are working on a Naruto fanfiction together, and we even make characters based on ourselves. The story is progressing, but we still haven't picked a title... this is a short introduction to the story, and I appreciate any comments to it. Note that I did not personally make up everything (Sagara Tao is based on myself, Saito Sasaki on a friend named Erik, and Yumi on a friend named Selena).
After the Fourth Great Ninja War has ended, a new chunin exams begin where Team Iron (Sagara Tao, Saito Sasaki, Yumi Sato and Ryu the Dragon) are the protagonists of the series. A proud samurai, a vengeanceful Uchiha and a power-crazed kunoichi are an odd match indeed, but destiny has brought them together and they eventually begin to respect each other. Meanwhile, as the world is prepared for peace, in the darkness a new shadow rises as the Yami Seken plans to subdue all of the ninja world. The three comrades and their friends in Team Tai (Daijiro Sasaki, Miru Yuki and Shimizu Hoshi), are thrown into the conflict which will not only test their strength as warriors but the strength of their hearts. Yumi Sato fails the test and is kidnapped by Kamen, causing the remaining five friends to launch a two-year search for her. And when they finally find their former comrade, she has become a loyal member of the Yami Seken. After realizing that they are no match for the organization, they are convinced to join Yan Tzun's quest for world domination. But they also realize that there are far greater evils lurking in the darkness than what Yan Tzun can understand...
Sagara Tao: A samurai who grew up in the Land of Iron, although his origins are in a country far away from the continent. He takes much pride in his heritage and although he is generally kind-hearted and polite, he is distrustful of any shinobi since he considers them "dishonorable". But even if he lacks ninjutsu and genjutsu, Sagara should not be taken lightly: he is a stronger and faster taijutsu fighter than most, and he have inherited a dojutsu called shingan, enabling him to read and to a certain extent alter the thoughts of his target. He has also inherited a young dragon named Ryu.
Saito Sasaki: Born as the child of an Uchiha father and a mother from the Land of Water, Saito survived the Uchiha massacre due to his absence and has worked hard to activate his clan's powers despite his unpure blood. He can be compared to Sasuke both in personality and ability, although Saito is a loyal comrade to Sagara and Yumi. He specializes in fire and lightning as well as the sharingan, and later on as his skills increase he becomes very fond of amaterasu.
Yumi Sato: Although weak during the Chunin exams, the Yami Seken sees potential in Yumi to become more powerful than Sagara and Saito, due to her eagerness to gain power simply for the reason of being powerful. She has a dark and self-centered personality, although she develops a love interest for Sagara Tao despite his personality being the opposite. After joining the Yami Seken, Yumi becomes a true master of genjutsu and even learns space-time migration.
Ryu the dragon: Sagara's pet dragon, who refuses to think of himself as a pet, was hatched at the same day Sagara was born and given to the infant by the Tao Shogun (Sagara's father). In the first season he merely serves as company for the team, but in the second season Sagara learns how to unleash the full power of a Tao dragon, temporarily transforming Ryu until an enormous fire-breathing creature of destruction.
Daijiro Sasaki: The easy-going and humorous brother of Saito, considered to be a "disappointment" because of his lazyness. However, Daijiro has also inherited the sharingan as well as some of their mother's water techniques, making him a powerful ninja indeed.
Miru Yuki: An outcast from the Hyuga clan who have inherited much of her clan's prowess and shows potential to surpass both Neji and Hinata in skill. She has a warrior personality and values honor just like Sagara Tao, but she also dislikes relying on allies in battle.
Shimizu Hoshi: A very kind-hearted, shy and caring kunoichi, Shimizu serves as the group's healer and sensor, almost completely lacking combat skills. But she becomes a very skilled healer, and thus a great asset for the group.
Yan Tzun: A very powerful rogue ninja, founder and leader of the Yami Seken and a mastery of the iron element. He is resistant to genjutsu, extremely strong and enduring physically, and can completely control metallic materials which includes turning his enemy's weapons against them. Yan Tzun is mostly known as a terrorist who wants to subdue the ninja world, although it is later revealed that he only did this out of love for his daughter and wife, who belonged to a demonic species that had been oppressed for centuries by humanity.
Kyonshi: The daughter of Yan Tzun and Oni, Kyonshi has been spoiled and loved by her father all her life, giving her a self-centered and quite cruel personality. She specializes in a vampiric ability to bite her victims, draining their chakra and even copying their abilities when successful. She is killed by Saito Sasaki in the first season, but returned to life by Yan Tzun. Upon being revived, she gains two sharingan eyes implanted which further strengthens her powers.
Kyouko: The son of Yan Tzun and Oni, but disliked by his father who considers him a great disappointment. He has been little more than a servant and bodyguard to his sister, and he almost never speaks. He covers his entire body in bandages except for his left eye, to hide all the injuries given to him from battle as well as experiments. He is killed in battle against the demons, his last words being "I'm sorry, sis.", indicating that he actually cared for his oppressive family and willingly became their servant to protect them.
Kamen: Yan Tzun's second-in-command, Kamen is a powerful but cautious individual who actually tries to avoid prolonged combat. He wears a bone mask covering his eyes and ears to protect him from genjutsu, relying on powerful sensing skills to "see" his enemies and destroy them using his unique chakra absorbtion abilities.
Akuma: The self-declared king of demons, a being of immense power that plots to annihilate or enslave all of mankind and let demons rule this world. He has gathered an army of undead warriors and several demons to do this, and he serves as the primary antagonist throughout the second season. He is eventually destroyed after Oni, Kumo, the main characters and the Yami Seken fight him together. Through unknown means he have acquired the rinnegan, and also gave it to his demon generals.
Oni: A demon woman and wife of Yan Tzun. She is a pacifist who does not fight unless required in the name of justice, but her powers are superior to any common ninja. She eventually joins the Yami Seken to fight against Akuma. She can use the rinnegan after being given it by Akuma.
Kumo: A demonic creature consisting of a man's upper body attached to the lower body of a giant spider, with four human arms and four spider legs. He is a powerful demon of questionable loyalty, although his only real goal seems to be to live in peace. He betrays his demon kin after realizing Akuma's evil, and together with Oni and the Yami Seken they manage to defeat him.
