Tsunaku Senju is the first main protagonist of the series since Kaipuden, a genin-level shinobi and a member of the Senju Clan of Konohagakure. He is the son of Dan Kato and Tsunade Senju , and the Jinchuriki of Chikaku, the Ten-Tailed Badger.
Tsunaku has blue eyes, red hair (much like his great-grandmother, Mito Uzumaki), and fair skin like his mother, as he also bears a strong resemblance to his grandfather, Hanaku Senju and a stark resemblance of his deceased uncle, Nawaki as the way it was when he was born.
In Kaipuden he wears a black shirt, a vest to cover the shirt, blue homage, a black belt, blue pants, blue-color shoes, and a blue headband (The same headband Tsunade wore in her childhood) as a trademark. In his Soul Reaper form, he wears the standard shihakusho, and a Zanpakuto steathe on his back with a brown belt (even on his human form).
Tsunaku's unlike Naruto and Gaara at the start of his life, he is always a kind, carefree, and responsible person to those who he was become friends with. Tsunaku is shown to be fearless after witnessing Sasuke's curse mark form in the second state as he laughs out in joy. In the field of science, technology, and information, Tsunaku's more focus and dedicated to invent and investigate on projects and presentations for new jutsu to be certified as he becomes full of excitement for a successful invention like the Jutsupedia, the very first jutsu collecting databank encyolopedia, that can surpass Orochimaru's method of achieving the jutsu to be yet discovered. Tsunaku get all energized when he get to battle his opponents, but if one or an enemy was harming his loved ones, he become furious and serious to face against them.
Even as from an infant to a ten year old boy, Tsunaku's able to learn the names of people he meets, but he refers Shizune as "Zune" as it somethings annoyed her, got used to it.
After the Sasuke left the village, Tsunade starting to remember the Sacred Stones has the power of letting a woman to give birth (But also gives the new birth a Tailed Beast) and use it that made her pregancy until ten days, and after several pushes, Tsunade gave birth to her newborn son, Tsunaku was born.
After three days since he was born, he begin to learn, grown, and talk by himself while he was aging into a ten year old. All he did in his four year/ twelve days was staying in his room at the Hokage Mansion (because if Konoha citizens knew that Tsunaku is a jinchuriki, he would suffer the same misery as Naruto did). One day, Tsunade decide to take a family photo (just her and Tsunaku) she trust and love her son, so she gave Tsunaku, access to the abandoned laboratory as he became interested into technology, Tsunaku became a child prodigy in advanced technology. Tsunade use a secret passage in order to head to the training grounds, to train him in ninjutsu and taijutsu taught by her father when she was a kid (as he initially mastered the speed style).
At the age of 4, Gaara was requested by the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade, to teach him, wind style nature to complete one of the steps of his jinchuriki training, and by the end of day, Tsunaku completed his basic nature.
When Tsunaku reach the age of 5, he went to the Ninja Academy, where he was the top student of the academy (just like Itachi was when he was a child), getting good grades, and also master all E-Rank ninjutsu, genjutsu and taijutsu, but was bullied by others that were unable to pass the Bell Test until they decided to go outside of the village, so Tsunaku decide to leave Konoha for a while. When they reach their destination, the others ran back to the village as Tsunaku met Sasori, who scared off the would-be Konoha genin, but he remained there as he became amaze that he met another ninja from a different land (much to Sasori being uncomfortable) as he saw a "portion of a flame increasing" inside of him. Later they travelled into a location at the Land of FIre, and surprised Sasori (which freaked him out in his Hiruko puppet) that he just punched the door and demolished it.
Tsunaku and Sasori found the treasure which reveal to be a Speed Globe, he celebrated as he ask him to be his master as he was offered to have an apprentice, which he answer yes. Sasori taught the nine year old Tsunaku, the four basics techniques of Soul Reapers; zanjutsu, hakuda, hoho, and kido, as the results started to not only improved Tsunaku's abilities, but form a bond with Sasori (a related father-son relation). However the Konoha jonin and chunin; Kakashi Hatake, Might Guy, Kurenai Yuhi, Asuma Sarutobi, Ibiki Morino, Anko Mitarashi, Genma Shiranui, Shizune, Izumo Kamizuki, and Kotetsu Hagane with the Suna jonin, Baki to arrest Sasori (as Tsunaku learned about rogue ninjas), despite his effort to convince them that he isn't the rogue ninja he once was, he activated his tailed beast chakra to fight back, before he could kill Kakashi and Baki, Sasori stopped him as from becoming one himself. As Sasori explained his entire past, he realized that Tsunaku truly enjoy his time with him as he surrounded himself to Konoha, he and Tsunaku promised to see each other again after he pay his debt to society.
After Tsunaku returned to Konoha, his large egg that he founded several days ago, was gonna hatch as he placed it in a cave in the forest, as it was revealed to be a Senju's Giant Cuckatoo, as he named it Kukaro, as he gave him some feedings, to last enough until he returns as he later met and befriended Hanabi Hyuga and Konohamaru Sarutobi, as night later came, they left the village to pursue Sasuke Uchiha.

As Sasuke was gonna strike Hanabi with a Chidori, Tsunaku uses the same jutsu that the One-Tailed Tanuki used, as their Senju-Uchiha battle begins. At first, Sasuke launches a couple lightning-based jutsu, but weren't a match for the Chakra Sword Slash, Rotating Plate Jutsu, or Whirling Palm (as it even defeated two fire-based ninjutsu). Before Sasuke was gonna activated the second state of his mark, Tsunaku stab himself with a mysterious glowing kunai as it transform him into a Soul Reaper. The battle resumes as they clash, Tsunaku was gaining the upper hands which was fueling Sasuke's rage as he activated his mark's second state, (while Konohamaru and Hanabi were frighted) Tsunaku just laughed a bit as he told him that the Sasuke Uchiha, he's been hearing isn't a ninja who would just accept power from others as he continue by saying that he was already gaining more improvements from the bond of his deceased parents (just like Tsunaku gain his power by the bond of his mother and Shizune). To show Sasuke the truth, he was determine to remove the Heavens' Curse Mark as he also awakened his hidden powers. Tsunaku asked for the Ten-Tailed Badger for his chakra as they were ready for to fight, he summon forth seven more speed clones as they were distracting Sasuke, he was able to draw enough spirit energy as the last remaining clone slash Sasuke's wing, Tsunaku launches his Reikiku (the Founding First Hokage's jutsu) directly at him as it swallow Sasuke entirely. When his friends grabbed him by the wrist on each side, Tsunaku used the Sage Art: Philosopher's Removal Seal as he removed the Heavens' Curse Mark off of Sasuke, it manifested into a white snake was possibly 6-10 inch tall as it cowered, Tsunaku slashed it with his zanpakuto as it almost enter into Hanabi's unconscious body. When Konohamaru and Hanabi regain conscious, all of them saw a fire dragon flying in the sky among the cloud (as Tsunaku was the first to notice and much to their surprised), when Tsunaku carried an unconscious Sasuke on his back, they headed back to Konoha.
Once morning arrived Tsunaku and his friends walk passed his semi guardians, Izumo Kamizuki and Kotetsu Hagane, as he headed to the Konoha Hospital and check in Sasuke for medcial treatment. Naruto Uzumaki arrived as he became surprised to see Konohamaru in the hospital as he officially met Tsunaku, he was super shocked that he is Tsunade's offspring, but through an easy and genius explaination, he saw his mother at the hospital not only to bring him and his friends to the Hokage Office, but for her recent third child, Tenade, as he was alright with the idea of having three siblings. When they arrived, Iruka, Hiashi Hyuga, and the hyuga elder were mad at their actions for leaving the village, but Tsunade wasn't gonna punished, as they later realized that they are real to be ninjas, she ordered them to close their eyes and lay off their hands as Hanabi and Konohamaru were given headbands, Tsunade place her old headband on his forehead as they officially graduated and were in a squad together.

When Tsubaki and Kakashi launched out their Water Style: Water Dragon Jutsu at them, Tsunaku counterattack with his Speed Style: Double Sword Slash as Hanabi comment that she "always heard of knights slaying dragons, but never saw one slay two dragons in one day" as he concentrate to draw forth all of the spirit energy as he fires a Reikiku directly at the senseis.
