Ichibi no Shukaku's History

The One-Tailed Shukaku(Ichibi No Shukaku) is the demon of Sunagakure. Shukaku was once said to be the corrupted spirit of a Suna priest that turned into a demon, but it is actually one of the tailed beasts. It was originally sealed inside a tea kettle, and then placed inside a jinchuriki. Shukaku is intelligent, but also incoherent, giving it the demeanor of a drunkard. Like other tailed beasts, its innate rage and bloodlust influence its behavior, and it relishes the opportunity to kill anyone in sight. The demons resemble an animal, and the Sand Demon is no different. The Sand Demon is influenced by Tanuki, the Japanese name for the raccoon dog. He has been renowned for its mischievous nature and abilities to shape-shift and bring good fortune.

During the time of termoil it chose to direct its bloodlust against the Sand Village. The villagers all fought valiantly against this untamed beast but were defeated in the end. The battle seemed hopeless until one Sand ninja rose up to face the demon alone. That ninja was the Kazekage, Aeandir. With his seemingly limitless powers, Shukaku laughed at the sight of just one mere ninja facing him. Perhaps that was the cause of his defeat, as Aeandir fought valiantly and managed to weaken the demon. Once Shukaku knew that this was no mere ninja he began preparing his most powerful jutsu to destroy the sand once and for all. Aeandir saw an opening and quickly called upon his ANBU to enact the plan to capture the demon. Caught off guard and defenseless to stop it, the ANBU and Aeandir were able to seal the demon away to a remote part of the desert. It is there that Shukaku waits for unsuspecting ninja to wander by him so he can once again kill.
