Created by Kaguya Otsutsuki shortly before her defeat, Black Zetsu has gradually manipulated the course of history through indirect manipulation, starting with turning Hagoromo Otsutsuki's eldest son Indra against his brother Asura. Convincing Madara that he was a manifestation of his will, he infiltrated the Akatsuki, manipulating their noble goals into a plot only he knew of to resurrect his mother.
