Kado's guardian ghost, Aizen Myooh (愛染明王, Aizen Myō-ō) is a gigantic Buddhistic spirit that utilizes its six arms to rapidly attack its opponents with its personal bow, that can hunt down any spirit no matter how fast they are.


Prior to meeting the Gandhara, Kado was living in Inidia and married with 3 children. He had become wealthy by opening a chain of curry restaurants. His success led him to achieving the status of a Maharajah, but eventually succumbed to his greed. Senju speculates that the hard work he put into to achieve his status made him susceptible to avarice and as a result, became possessed by Mara. His family could no longer stand his behaviour, and ultimately left him. Heartbroken, Kado fell into depression, and constantly threw parties and wedding ceremonies, all the while drinking, as a way to forget the sadness of his losing his family.

Upon meeting the Gandhara, Kado offered them money in exchange for Sati's hand in marriage. When Sati learnt of Kado's story, she decided to change him into a better person and managed to free him from Mara's possession. Letting go of his grief, Kado decided to sell of his restaurants and everything else, and joined the Gandhara as gratitude for helping him.[2]


Shaman Fights Second Round

When Saigan Sati wanted to have the Five Elemental Warriors to train in hell, it was Kado's and Team "Myooh"'s responsibility to send Team "The Ren" to hell and watch over their bodies, so that they would surely be able to be revived.
