As a practitioner of Yugenshinkage Ryu, Kakugo Kasukabe was looking for his path in the world. He wanted to defend the weak from those who would prey on them, and ensure their safety. To that end, he found that the lawlessness of an African country ideal for it.
While looking over the graves of all who died in the village he was attacked by a bunch of rebels. However, before they could pull the trigger they were killed by the current regime. After threatening the lives of the villagers they forced him to go with them. Upon confronting the Warlord Kakugo demanded to know the whereabouts of the food he took from the village as well as for him to stop killing innocent people. However, they just attempted to execute him but he was able to escape and kill all of the soldiers and the warlord. After escaping he brought the food back to the village.
Due to his actions Kakugo was forced to flee the country to Europe. However, he was constantly being chased by people who were after his life. It was no longer possible for him to hide, let alone help people, so he decided to bring down as many bad people as he could while he was there. During this time he saw something that no man should ever see. Kakugo’s heart was never the same after that.
He eventually met Kie after she mistook him for Kiryu and the two quickly hit it off. When they parted ways Kie ended up kidnapped by Larry of The Woman Trade. Fortunately, Kakugo recognized the man as he was following her and was able to rescue her and escape.
Kakugo followed the Heavenly Kings of Death unseen during their test for the succession of the Yugenshinkage Ryu test. He even made sure that Rhino got out safely after the truck he and Kichi were fighting in crashed. However, he didn’t show himself until Kiichi defeats Orochi.
