Sasori is an antagonist of the Shonen Jump Series Naruto.
At a young age Sasori became an orphan who lost both of his parent who would then later be adopted by Sakumo Hatake, the war veteran soldier and father of Kakashi Hatake and be cared by grandmother Chiyo. It would be later than that Chiyo would teach Sasori how to build puppets, however even though Sasori is very good at making puppets he began to be rather cold and distant ever since he created puppets.
The puppets were so deadly Sasori would later be nicknamed "Sasori Of The Red Sand". However, Sasori devised a plan a way to convert human corpses into puppets just so he can access the secret abilities. He would later leave the Village Hidden In Sand after secretly killing the Third Kazekage by making him into a human puppet.
Later on, Sasori created a puppet body to house his heart and achieve his ideal sense of immortality. After defeating Konan in combat, Sasori joined the Akatsuki, a team lead by the infamous villainous Pain.
