Ayaname ( Ayana or Aya for short) grew up in a small village in Kirigakure with an abusive aunt. Her aunt would always tell Ayaname that she would never achieve anything in life, all she'll ever be was a stupid little girl, depending on others to provide for her. Ayaname's dreams and hope started to die down until she met Janku Taioto and his sister Wolph Taioto at age 5. Now, Ayaname, 15 years of age, is proving her aunt wrong. She is achieving her goals little by little with the help of her friends. She has also joined the Akatsuki In order to gain strength and knowledge on her past.
