Despite the fact that they robbed her of her family, Ketsu grows to actually like Team 7, something that was hard for both sides. But now that she has forgiven them for what they did, and having saved their lives, they want this wild mountain girl to come back to Konoha with them. Yet the snowy mountains is where she thrives, it's her life, but Konoha is safe, warm and properous. Though as danger ensues in both regions, Ketsu realizes she'll only be able to survive in one, and not the other.
