- "I want to obtain all the techniques and gain a true understanding of everything in this world. The first one to mix blue and yellow called the new color "green". I want to do something similar to that. If blue is the chi, then yellow is the seal, and green is the technique."
- ―Orochimaru to Hiruzen Sarutobi
Orochimaru (大蛇丸) was a master airbender and one of the three legendary Sannin of Konohagakure. Having the life ambition of learning all of the world's knowledge on the bending arts, Orochimaru sought immortality to accomplish this ambition. After being discovered performing numerous illegal experiments upon his fellow citizens, Orochimaru defected from Konoha, becoming a missing-nin and for many years he plotted to destroy the village, enacting his revenge and showcasing his evolution. To accomplish this, Orochimaru amassed an entire army and experiments for himself after forming Otogakure in the Land of Rice Fields, a small nation which he bought and renamed the Land of Sound.
