Founding and History of the Nara Clan


The Nara Clan is a well-respected clan of the Hidden Leaf Village. They are skilled in Shadow Manipulation Techniques and are also known for their deer tending.

An outsider can enter the forest under only one condition, when they have received permission from the Nara Clan.




The clan possesses a book that contains various medicine preparations and their effects. They have passed this book along for generations and this goes to show the fact that they are also skilled in healing arts. This book also contains information regarding the secret pills which are used by the Akimichi Clan.


The Nara Clan has a long-standing and special bond with the Akimichi Clan and YamanakaClan of the Hidden Leaf. The members of these three clans have formed trios for generations. The trios of these three clans are known as the Ino-Shika-Cho trios.



It is a long-standing tradition that whenever the generation heads of these three clans are promoted to the rank of Chunin, a member of the Sarutobi Clan will provide them with special earrings. This symbolizes the unity between the three clans and that they are considered adults in the eyes of their respective clans.
