The Akatsuki is a group of people from different villages who left their village so that they can become powerful. They usually wear a black cloak with red clouds on it, and their headband from their village with a scratch through it. They also wear purple nailpolish and a ring signifying that they are part of the Akatsuki. When traveling, they wear a bamboo hat too hide their faces. The leader of Akatsuki is Pain. Their plan is to get money, then to collect all the Demon Foxes. (Bijuu) from their Jinchurriki, which is the person who has the demon sealed inside of him/her. Example = Gaara and Naruto. So far, the Akatsuki have killed all the Jinchuuriki and taken out all the Bijuu from them, except for Naruto. You might be wondering then, why is Gaara still alive? Well, they captured Gaara and removed the shukaku from him, but then Chiyo restored his life by using a special medical ninjustsu which gives the person your life. She died, and Gaara returned back to life.
