The Akatuki clans founder was named: Saurata Akatuki. The Akatuki clan is a Fire -using clan, who every fifth member of the Head Branch Family gets a seal of a demon dragon on his/her stomach. But, they stopped right after Kageno got his sealing, because his dragon were close to extend the Akatuki clan.
The founder of the clan was twenty years old when he did it. He found a Dragon and fought it, and won. He used the Fire Release: Great Fire Bomb Technique. They both got blown up, and Sauratas family came to help him. He lost a lot of blood, so he replaced it with the Dragon's blood. Then, he got the Akaryuugan, and this is the original of the Akaryuugan.
