He used to live with his mother at first in the Hidden Sound Village but only until Orochimaru ordered his followers to destroy the village, kidnap the children and kill the people of the village.
One of Orochimaru’s followers, whose name is Guren, fainted on the ground while fighting. Yukimaru's mother found her and treated her well. After Guren woke up, she said she would spare the life of Yukimaru and his mother because she helped her and was kind to her.
When Guren again met Yukimaru’s mother, she had to kill her because of Orochimaru's orders, and when she fell to the ground and died, all the Camellias turned red from white because of the blood.
After the Death of Yukimaru’s Mother, He became an orphan and started to live with Orochimaru's followers in Orochimaru's place.
One day when he was picking his favorite camellias flowers, Kabuto came to talk to him, while Sasuke was also there at the lakeside. After Sasuke left, Kabuto did some experiments with him making Yukimaru release his power and call forth the Three-Tails, but then he fainted.
After Kabuto's experiment, he takes Yukimaru with him to Yugakure, The Hidden Village in Hot Water, where he meets Naruto Uzumaki. They talk about his feelings and bonds with people. After talking for a while, they both go their separate way.
Orochimaru ordered Guren to take Yukimaru with her on a mission, but midway through traveling, Yukimaru falls sick. When taking care of Yukimaru, Guren felt a bond with him grow, like mother and son, and Yukimaru felt the same bond. They both became close. Guren gave him crystallized Camellia and said that as long as she was alive, it would never die and would always stay the same. Soon after they continued their mission, and met Naruto.
After Naruto learned that Guren was following Orochimaru's mission, he asked her to let Yukimaru go with him, but Yokimaru refused.
Because of the bond he created with Guren, and because of what Naruto talked about, he feels that Guren is like his mother, and he wants to go with Guren.
In a later experiment with Yukimaru, Kabuto succeeded in totally summoning the Three-Tails by making him ingest more tablets than the previous time. He quickly passed out from the effort, leaving the beast to proceed with the attack, and his nose and ears started to bleed.
He discovered Guren battling the beast to defend him when he awoke. The Three-Tails soon swept them away despite Yukimaru's best efforts to keep it away from her.
After Yukimaru had recovered from the experience, he discovered Guren and Naruto squabbling over him. Since he now had a place to be with Guren, Yukimaru thanked Naruto saying that he was glad to have met him.
Yukimaru briefly subdued the Three-Tails without the help of Kabuto's tablets until Guren reengaged it. But the beast got away from him, and Yukimaru lost consciousness.
When he recovered, a troop of Konoha ninja informed them that the Three-Tails had devoured Guren and Naruto. After assisting them in discovering the beast, Yukimaru retreated into hiding with Sai. Rinji swiftly apprehended him.
Rinji assaulted them, and in doing so, identified himself as Kabuto. Yukimaru was noticeably astonished that this had happened.
Kabuto explained that Guren and Yukimaru's goal was for the two of them to get close and dear to one another, so that when Yukimaru found out that Guren had killed his mother, he would use his rage to make his power burst. He discussed how the whole ninja community was utilizing Yukimaru to obtain the Three-Tails because they anticipated a terrible future.
Guren and Yukimaru took off as Naruto and Kabuto engaged in combat. Guren guarded Yukimaru while Kabuto sent Rinji's reanimated body after them. Guren trapped herself and Rinji in crystal, and they plummeted into the lake when Guren's Crystal Release assaults against Rinji's bats were ineffective.
Yukimaru unleashed his strength after concluding Guren was dead, sending the Three-Tails into a frenzy and breaking the seal the Konoha ninja were just about to complete.
Following the beast's expulsion, Naruto tracked down Yukimaru and returned him to the other Konoha ninja for rest. They realized he had lost control of the Three-Tails because his body could not manage the stress.
When he awoke, the crystal Guren had given Yukimaru was fully restored and sparkling. To find her, he dashed off into the darkness. After seeing that Yukimaru had vanished, Naruto set out to find him. When he discovered Guren's crystal unharmed in a patch of bushes, he understood where Yukimaru had gone and chose to leave him alone.
The following morning, he made this argument with the other Konoha ninja, preventing them from looking for Yukimaru. Guren, Gozu, and Yukimaru peered down at the departing Konoha ninja as they walked away, and Naruto spotted them as well. He saw them happily walking away hand in hand, just like a mother and her child, and then he started to miss his mother. He felt if she was alive, he could have held hands with her like this.
Yukimaru and Guren were also seen at the end of Naruto Shippuden when they both met Naruto after the war. They can be seen in the crowd area in front of the Hidden Leaf Village's front gate.
Yukimaru is a kind and calm young boy who loves to spend his time in quiet places and mostly be around nature. He loves White Camellias Flowers, and when he was in Orochimaru’s Hideout, he used to go to the nearby lake to get these flowers.
Yukimaru believes in bonds and love, which is why after Guren took care of his feelings, he felt the bond and loved her as his mother.
Yukimaru has long, pale-green hair and eyes that are magenta. His attire was a jade-green kimono which was gray on the outside and cadet-blue slacks with bandages that reached his ankles.
He wears low-cut dark brown sandals, which are not the usual shinobi footwear. He wore a blue cloak when he traveled to the lake where the Three-Tails was with Kabuto and Guren.
This is not a Jutsu; he has the power to summon and call out the Three-Tails. Still, it’s not under his control because it was Kabuto who gave him some pills to release his Chakra and call or control the Three-Tailed Beast.
