Background: Had too much fun with puppets and lost his way.
The Deal with him: Sasori of the Red Sand is one disturbed puppet. He lost his parents in the war against Konoha Village when he was a child, and yearned for parental love. Having a caring grandmother didnít seem to be enough for him, although Grandma Chiyo taught him how to play with puppets, ninja-style.
The first puppets lonely little Sasori built were in the likeliness of his parents, in an attempt to recreate the warmth of being in their arms. However, his puppets broke, and perhaps, with Sasoriís sanity along with it. His experiments with puppets grew more deadly, as he preyed on human to be the cask of his puppets. His proud collection included the 3rd Kazekage of the Sand Village, and various strong ninjas. His obsession with puppetry stopped at nothing and he eventually turned himself into a puppet as well, immortalizing his young teenage appearance.
It was perhaps around that time that he defected from the Sand Village to join the Akatsuki gang. His first partner was Orochimaru, and later Deidara after Orochimaru left the organization.
