Originally From: Hidden Rain Village
Paine is the assigned leader of Akatsuki
, although he reports to some other being who we do not know about (as seen in chapter 363 of the manga). He was told by Tobi
to capture Naruto
, and that because he is the leader, he cannot fail. Nothing much is known about him except that he is able to perform high level jutsu
, he has the ability to make it rain, and that he has brown-red hair and blue eyes (based on the Shippuuden anime).
Before he appeared in the manga
