Beginning at the age of only 6 Izaya began to learn how to create and forge blades, his father would teach him about the different types of materials weapons could be made out of and about the different weapons that there are. Izaya proved to be a prodigy easily able to make strong and durable weapons with considerable ease, he also contributed to his families forging business to boom, making his family incredibly rich and the main supplier of weapons in Kumogakure. Only two years later Izaya was considered to be a master weapon forger and at that time his father believed it was time to share the families secret of how to make even stronger and more advanced weapons. His parents had him enroll in the Kumo academy to learn the basics of building and controlling chakra. Izaya showed great physical prowess even at a young age partly because of the strength needed to built in order to forge weapons. Izaya believed that the academy to easy and easily passed different areas of expertise. Then Izaya was personally selected as one of the few to partake in a special graduation ceremony where the student would perform a Lariat on a dummy simultaneously as the next Raikage, who at the time was Darui. The students lined up in a line, while Killer Bee and Ay viewed the students fail at performing a balanced Lariat with Darui.

A, Bee, and Darui were amazed at how much chakra he had amassed, Gyūki mentioned to Bee that Izaya had more chakra than even he. Izaya and Darui swiftly performed the Lariat taking the head clean off. It was then decided that Izaya was to become the third Bee, or Stinger Bee.
Killer Bee began training Izaya in Lightning Release and Kenjutsu, specifically in Cloud-Style kenjutsu and Acrobat. To Bee's amazement Izaya easily picked up on and learned the kenjutsu and continued to perfect it. A, the 4th Raikage, also decided to train Izaya in Lightning Release and how to utilize techniques such as Lightning Release Chakra Mode and the Hell Stab technique as well as his nintaijutsu. His father also taught him the Creation of All Things technique which a secret way of creating powerful weapons, it took Izaya two months to learn it.

His friendship with Bee grew and they became best friends and would go on missions and perform rap shows together in Kumo. At the age of 14 Izaya was made a jōnin, and had created a very unique and deadly sword style known as the Ryujin Style that specializes in taking down a large amount of enemies with considerable ease and the intent to kill.

After the war was over he began searching for powerful tools and eventually came across Obito's hideout and discovered Itaachi's body where he preceded to extract the Sword of Totsuka and using his Creation of All Things gave the sword a physical form.
A few years later Killer Bee was abducted by the Akatsuki, only leaving his Samehada behind. Once Izaya figured out that it was the Akatsuki he decided that he would find and rescue Bee even if it cost him his life. But before he left the village a young man appeared in the village asking around about Killer Bee. Izaya approached the young man asking who he was and why he was looking for Bee. The young man was named Nekomaru and he explained that he was there to meet his uncle Gyūki and train with him. Izaya confused at the fact that Nekomaru was saying that the eight-tails was his uncle still believed him. Izaya told Nekomaru that Bee had been kidnapped by a powerful organization called the Akatsuki. Nekomaru decided that he would go and rescue Bee, but Izaya stopped and said that there was know way he was currently strong enough to beat the Akatsuki. Noticing that Nekomaru was carrying a sword he asked if Neko was skilled in kenjutsu in which Neko replied that he was. Izaya said that he would train and help Nekmoaru rescue Bee. Izaya looked at Nekomaru's sword and heavily criticized and said that he needs a much more powerful and unique sword. After Neko's sword was created by Izaya they began trainging and the search for Killer Bee.
