Kyodai was a spirit entity from Kamigawa, an important part of O-Kagachi himself, who was stolen from the kakuriyo and imprisoned by daimyo Takeshi Konda in a stone disk known as That Which Was Taken, or simply The Taken One. This act was the primary cause of the Kami War.
Kyodai was bound to Michiko Konda, the daimyo's daughter. With the help of Toshiro Umezawa she was freed from the disk and manifested physically. She looked like Michiko's serpentine twin. Her name means "sibling".
