Sasuke Uchiha (うちはサスケ, Uchiha Sasuke) is a protagonist of the series. He hails from the village's famed Uchiha clan and was a member of Team Kakashi. He is the younger brother of Itachi Uchiha. He is also the leader of Team Taka, which consists of Suigetsu Hozuki, Karin, and Jugo.
Sasuke Uchiha has onyx eyes and fair skin. Like, most of the Uchiha clan, Sasuke has straight jet black hair. His hairstyle is pretty much consistent throughout the series with spiky hair on the middle to the back of his head and medium bangs on the front part. After defecting from the village, Sasuke wears dark blue pants and blueish-white shirt, a blue cloth hanging from upper stomach to his knees and a purple rope wrapped around his waist in which he carries his sword. Parts of the garment are probably taken after his one-time mentor, Orochimaru. His appearance is always considered handsome as he has many female characters infatuated with him throughout the series.
After leaving Konoha, Sasuke's personality became emotionless, darker and colder. He is driven by revenge and desire for power. It could be arguably said that he became more like Itachi Uchiha even though he is still more prone to show his temper than his elder brother.
It is worth noting that, despite his popularity with opposite sex, Sasuke has always remained aloof when it comes to advances from women. This is highly due to his strong focus towards obtaining power and revenge. Despite his aloofness, many female characters such as Ino and Sakura still consider him as a "cool" type much to the chagrin of other male characters.
So far, Sasuke has appeared many times in the Rock Lee spin-off manga and anime, but he officially appeared in a speaking role in Episode 47 wherein Taka encountered Team Guy.
In Episode 51, Sasuke ensues his plan, to avenge his brother, with the help of the Akatsuki. He, however, failed after his plans were thwarted by Lee, the shinobi of Konoha and, notably, Orochimaru.
A gifted shinobi, like his older brother, Sasuke possesses a high proficiency of Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and to a certain degree, Genjutsu, to name a few. This is further enhanced by his Kekkei Genkai, Sharingan and, later on, the Mangekyo Sharingan.
