The Six Paths of Pain (above) and the Outer Path (below), Source [[1][2]].

Nagato, also known as the Outer Path, was originally the second in command of the Akatsuki. His talent with the Rinnegan, unknowingly given to him by Madara Uchiha, made him the unarguably strongest of the early Akatsuki's forces. When they were betrayed by Hanzo the Salamander, his commander Yahiko, whom he and Konan considered a brother, decided to kill himself, rather than have Hanzo destroy the organization, Nagato unlocked the powers of the Outer Path, obliterating Hanzo's forces after they betrayed him and converting Yahiko into the Deva Path (center left). From then on, he dedicated the Akatsuki to rounding up the Tailed Beasts and concentrating them into superweapons.
