Akatsuki is a clan or group of Ninja that are all of S-class level missing-nin, and they aim to posses all of the tailed beasts. With the tailed beasts they aim to force the world into war and control it through price fixing missions. This will allow them to become hired mercenaries squad to squash nations at war. Akatsuki has around 10 ninja who work in teams of two, with the exception being Zetsu, who acts as a lookout/spy. These teams work together to ensure survival and and a greater percentage of completion in the missions they undertake.it was Revealed that Yahiko (before he became Deva pain) founded akatsuki an idea came up with by madara uchiha
Akatsuki members have a very distinct style of clothing. They all wear a long dark cloak with red clouds on it. The cloak has a high collar and they also have straw hats which they wear sometimes. Wearing the hat is not that common as we have only seen 4 members wearing the hat and only on one occasion for each of those four members. The hats are presumably worn to hide their appearance or if there is bad weather. Akatsuki members also wear rings which all have distinct symbols, each ring is different they also paint there nails in a dark color, the rings are worn on different fingers.
