Orochimaru was the primary antagonist of the series for most of part 1.he was one of Konohagakure`s Sannin,and later became a member of Akatsuki and the leader of Otagakure.
Orochimaru`s various human experiments took place as to serve two purposes,most prominent of which was his desire to learn every jutsu in the world.he was often seen as "Twisted" by a lot of other people including Tsunade.Jiraiya speculated that this was due to the fact that his parents died when he was at a very young age,and flashbacks shown during his battle with the Third Hokage spoke to this effect.perhaps because he wanted to see his parents,or as a mean of avenging their deaths.another reason might be that he witnessed first-hand the deaths of Tsunade`s younger brother,Nawaki,and her lover,Dan,and the pain that it caused her.he seemed saddened by the frailty of human life and how it affects those still living,which leads him to desire immortality.
He experimented on others to see what kind of modifications the human body can endure and to otherwise harness a subject`s unique abilities for himself.once accomplishing this goal Orochimaru had hoped to be worthy of the title of "Ultimate Being".because a human`s lifespan does not allow enough time to learn every jutsu,Orochimaru also experimented on others so as to achieve immortality.by living throughout the ages,Orochimaru needed to never worry about death and thus all the knowledge he gained would never be lost.
Above all else,Orochimaru cared only for himself.he grew bored when there was no conflict or violence in the world,and immediately struck fear into others when they first met him.though he had a number of followers who would do anything for him,Orochimaru treated them as mere pawns.he did not hesitate to send them to their deaths for his own personal benefits,and only found remorse in their loss if they were unable to properly complete a task.to win over these followers to their disposable status,Orochimaru approached them with promise of making their dreams come true.he applied a cursed seal to many of his strong subordinates in order to corrode their body and mind,making them more susceptible to his influence and control.according to Sasuke,Orochimaru has lost his purpose overtime and was merely playing with other people`s lives,as though he (Orochimaru) thought of himself as a gold.
