Akane Ito (伊藤茜, Ito Akane), formerly known as Akane Senju (あかね千住, Senju Akane), was the first village head and a kunoichi of Amegakure. She was also an S-Rank missing-nin and Anbu-level medical-nin from Konohagakure's Senju Clan and a direct descendant of Uzushiogakure's Uzumaki Clan.


Akane was born during the Warring States as the first child of nine to Hashirama Senju - the First Hokage - and Mito Uzumaki - the first Jinchūriki of Kurama.

When Mito had discovered her pregnancy, the Senju Clan rejoiced for the birth of an heir to the recently appointed head of the clan - Hashirama - who succeed following the death of Butsuma Senju during a battle against Tajima Uchiha.

During a brief skirmish between the Senju and Hagoromo, Mito had gone into labor while her husband was away fighting. Worried for the sake of her unborn child, Mito desperately tried to ignore the labor pains and continue on with her day - positive it was only Braxton Hicks Contractions.

However, Mito had gone into a premature labor and delivered a healthy girl - Akane - who upon taking her first breath was proclaimed as the heiress.
