Forming Akatsuki alongside his friends and fellow war orphans Yahiko and Konan , Nagato dreamed of bringing peace to the violent shinobi world. When he was very young, Madara Uchiha secretly transplanted his Rinnegan into Nagato without his or his parents' knowledge. One day, two Konoha shinobi broke into their home looking for food and Nagato and his parents tried to sneak out unnoticed. When they were discovered, his parents attacked the shinobi so that Nagato could escape. The Konoha ninja killed his parents in self-defence and, upon realising they were only civilians, tried apologising to Nagato.
Nagato Uzumaki atau lebih dikenal Nagato , adalah seorang ninja dari desa Amegakure yg mempunyai mata dewa. Mata yang sama dengan pencipta dunia shinobi Rikudo Sennin, yaitu Rinnegan. Nagato memiliki Rinnegan dan dapat mengendalikan ke-6 Pain menggunakan besi hitam yg ditancapkan ditubuh 6 Pain. Lalu wadah Pain Gakido merupakan mayat ninja Kusagakure. Wadah Pain Ningendo merupakan mayat ninja Takigakure.
Nagato appears as the acting leader of the Akatsuki who wish to capture the tailed beasts sealed into various shinobi around the shinobi world. After he works behind the scenes and seals most of the beasts within a statue, Nagato's superior gives him the mission to capture the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed inside the series' protagonist , Naruto Uzumaki. Before leaving to capture Naruto, Nagato engages in a mortal battle with his former mentor, Jiraiya. His past as a child who lost his parents and best friend during war is explored. Due to his traumatic experiences related to the conflicts from the ninja village, Nagato aims to create a new world that does not have to suffer from the chaos of wars. Nagato also appears in the series' video games , reprising his role from Naruto. Nagato was conceived by Kishimoto as a villain, a victim of war, who would show Naruto the impact of world wars, something Kishimoto aimed to explore throughout the series.
Even by Naruto's complex standards, the story of Nagato, the shinobi who later becomes known as Pain, is complicated. Remember, this is a series that revolves around a plot to cast the entire world into an eternal dream state utilizing a statue pulled down from the moon. Even against that wild backdrop, Pain's path is a twisted one. He is an orphan, a recluse, a god to some, at least , a criminal, and a pacifist.
