His, Kitane's, Tōu's, and Seito's corpses are stolen by grave robbers, and later revived with the use of lightning. After being revived all four of them were approached by Asuma Sarutobi who had figured out the scheme of the robbers. There he tries without luck to stop the latter three who seems to have become mindless puppets. He started walking towards an unknown point emitting large amounts of lightning, only to arrive and prepare his part of the Limelight technique. When Kitane was killed by Asuma, Kazuma's plan failed and he decided to release the summoned Nauma, Tōu, and Seito.
As one of the Twelve Guardian Ninja, he was one of the strongest shinobi in the Land of Fire, powerful enough to be choosen to be the direct guard of the daimyō. He has an elemental affinity forlightning. When in the four cardinal directions he, Kitane, Tōu, and Seito use a jutsu called Limelightto reduce everything within that area to ash.
