Hyuga clan’s lineage goes back to Ancestral Times. Members of Hyuga Clan are descendants of Hamura Otsutsuki, son of Kaguya Otsutuski. Hugya clan members share distant relations with the Uchiha Clan, Senju Clan and Uzumaki Clan. They are one of the strongest clans of the Hidden Leaf Village and their prowess are feared across the Five Great Nations.
The Hyuga Clan was divided into two parts, The Head Family and The Branch Family. This concept was introduced in the Hyuga clan to protect the clan’s secrets and Byakugan from outsiders. The Head Family is in charge of running the family and the Branch Family serves to protect the Head Family
The members of the Branch Family are branded with a seal on their heads. This seal gives the Head Family absolute control over Branch Family as they can cause extreme pain or destroy their brain switch simple hand signs. This seal also keeps the secrets of the family safe. In the event of the death of the seal wearer, it seals off the wearer’s Byakugan. There was a lot of bad blood and a hostile environment between the head and the branch family as the branch family was essentially treated like servants by the head family.
In the events of Hyuga Affairs, the Head Ninja of the Village Hidden by the Clouds was sent to Hidden Leaf with a convoy to sign a peace treaty between the two villages to end the war. Later, the Head Ninja tried to abduct Hinata Hyuga, daughter of Hiashi Hyuga, to acquire the Byakugan. He got caught by Hiashi and was killed by his hands. Hidden Cloud accused the Hidden Leaf and demanded Hiashi’s corpse as retribution.
Hizashi Hyuga, a member of the branch family and Hiashi Hyuga’s twin brother, sacrificed his life for the sake of the clan and the village. His corpse was sent to the Hidden Cloud Village, with his Byakugan sealed at the event of his death. This sacrifice kept the Byakugan safe from outsiders and avoided war.
He was the former leader of the Hyuga Clan and the father of Hiashi and Hizashi Hyuga. In the Hyuga Affairs, it was his idea to use his son, Hizashi Hyuga, as a body double for Hiashi Hyuga and end his corpse to Hidden Cloud to avoid war.
Hiashi Hyuga is the current head of the Hyuga Clan of Hidden Leaf. He is a strong and capable shinobi of the Hidden Leaf. He was part of the First Division of the Allied Shinobi War. Hiashi is a man of principle and never forgets about his duties towards the clan and the village. He always regretted that Hiizashi sacrificed his life and abandoned his son, Neji, for him.
Hizashi was the twin brother of Hiashi. He was born a few seconds after his brother and, because of that, became a part of the branch family. In the Hyuga Affair, he happily sacrificed his life and took Hiashi’s place to protect his clan and avoid war between Hidden Leaf and Hidden Cloud Village.
Neji was the son of Hizashi Hyuga and part of the the branch family. He was a prodigy of the Hyuga Clan and possessed a strong Byakugan. Although he was a part of the branch family, Hiashi chose Neji to lead Hyuga Forces in the upcoming Fourth Great Ninja War. During the war, Neji sacrificed himself by acting as a human shield to protect Hinata and Naruto from incoming enemy attacks.
Hinata Hyuga, also knowm as Byakugan Princess, is the former heiress of the Hyuga Clan. Since childhood, she aspired to become kind like her mother and strong like her father. After the Fourth Great Ninja War, she married Naruto Uzumaki and became a member of the Uzumaki Clan.
Hanabi is a Hidden Leaf shinobi and current heiress of the Hyuga Clan. Hiashi stated that she possesses strong Byakugan and has more potential to lead the clan than her elder sister, Hinata Hyuga.
