Taichi lived in the mountains surrounding Nakamaru and went to the city only if called by his lord, Funada Mitsuhide. Taichi delighted in collecting and hoarding odd magics. Taichi had a habit of hopping gently on one foot if kept waiting or otherwise impatient.
Taichi helped Kogi and Bupposo in their prank against Tsuyoi-no-kami monks, knowing they did not respect his lord. However, afterward, for reasons known only to him, he helped O-Shino in her bloodless vengeance against the Kogi and Bupposo.
