The Sage of Six Paths, whose real name is Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, is a character from the Naruto series who was a powerful priest and was known in legend as the God of Ninjutsu and the founder and father of the Ninja World. He was also the very first Jinchuuriki of the Ten-Tailed Beast.
The Sage was the son of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, a princess who took power from the God-Tree, turning it into the Ten-Tails and bringing about untold chaos. He was born with incredible amount of chakra as a result of his mother's actions and he was blessed with powerful ocular eyes called the Rinnegan which grants the user access to unique and powerful jutsus that are created from gods and godesses themselves.
According to legend, the Sage was an extremely powerful Ninja warrior with godlike powers who became the founder of the Ninja World. Because of endless wars and bloodshed that occured by people from the lands from around the world, the Sage desired to use his powers and wisdom to explain the truth about chakras and their abilities to bring peace among the lands. The Sage traveled around the world to spread his philosophy and religion which were eventually grasped by the people and became known as the Shinobu Sect or Ninjutsu and he was called by the people who desired peace as a Savior of the World.
Confronting the Ten-Tailed Beast
The Sage defeated the most powerful demon in the world called the Ten-Tailed Beast and sealed it inside himself, becoming it's very first Jinchuuriki. He was called a god because of his godlike abilities. Nearing his death, the Sage feared that once his death comes, the seal will break and the Ten-Tailed Beast will be released and wreck havoc in the world. To prevent this from happening, the Sage created a jutsu called the Creation of All Things which allowed him to divide up the Ten-Tails into nine individual beasts. He also used a Chibaku Tensei to seal the Ten-Tails' body into a gigantic stoned prison which he hurled into the sky which created the moon. He became a father figure to the nine young beasts, and gave names to each of the beasts and told them that even though they are separated, they will always be together, and when the time comes, they will become one again only to have different names and forms then what they were before they knew what true power really is.
On his death bed, the Sage had his two sons come before him whom he entrusted his powers, dreams, and legacy to to tell him what true peace is. The Older Brother born with the eyes of his father answered that power is the key to obtain true peace, while the Younger Brother born with his father's incredible physical powers, answered that love is the key to achieving true peace. Impressed by his younger son's answer, the Sage passed down his legacy to him and died. Angered that his father entitled his legacy to his brother, the Older Brother fought against his brother to obtain his leadership with their descendants continuing the feud down the line. Eventually, the Older Brother became the ancestor of the Uchiha Clan that are blessed with the Sharingan, while the Younger Brother became the ancestor of the Senju Clan that are blessed with powerful physical endurance.
Though not a great deal is known about all the skills Hagoromo possessed, he is widely accepted to be the most powerful figure in history, having been the only person to defeat the Ten-Tails: a being that was revered as a god, causing the Sage himself to be seen as a god. Hagoromo was also revered as the man to first understand the very nature of chakra itself. This wisdom, combined with his kekkei genkai, the Rinnegan, allowed Hagoromo to create the first modernninjutsu. With such powers at his disposal, Hagoromo obtained a great following, as men and women from across the world strove to learn from his teachings.
