I have this idea for a Naruto AU Akatsuki-centric RP.
In Japan, modern-day, The Akatsuki is a high-level Yakuza sect, operating in many things from blackmail to more. We would split the characters evenly among us. Zetsu would be a set of twins, names to distinguish them can be negotiated. This has a lot of room for any type of plot twists/plots.
Zetsu: Twins. One is a politician. The other acts as a go-between to give information to the Akatsuki.
Pein: The leader. He is the one who calls the shots.
Hidan: The priest. He works as Kakuzu's partner, as well as the one who obtains information about rival gangs.
Kakuzu: The accountant. Kakuzu works as the Akatsuki's personal accountant as well as a bounty hunter.
Kisame: The corrupt cop. He used to be a cop, but he finally snapped after witnesses a brutal murder. Now, he works as an informant.
Itachi: the assassin. Itachi is the one they call in when they need someone gone fast.
Sasori: The weapons master. He gets weapons for the Akatsuki. Whatever they need he supplies.
Deidara: The bomber. He is the one they bring in when they need a car bomb, or something bigger. He makes sure all the evidence is taken care of.
