Like Asana, Kaigin is believed to have been a subject of "Project Nidus," an Omni initiative focused on producing warriors capable of wielding weapons created by GAIA, the A.I. who built and maintained the Reactors. The nanite infusion he received from Nidus gave him the unique ability to warp through the Reactor's energy fields; however, it is also said to have rendered him sightless. Still, his deadly accuracy with both daggers and shuriken indicate that his lack of eyesight has not hindered him.

It should be noted that his unexpected emergence as a "self-funded" Freelancer was met with heavily upgraded security in both the Reactor and at Omni-Plex. In particular, new devices were placed around the Reactor specifically to deter teleportation. While correlation does not imply causation, this "coincidence" has many citizens wondering why.

Friends

  • Asana: Known to be childhood friends, though their current status is unclear.

Rivals

  • Su-Ren: "She knows why."
  • Tol-Ren: Documents suggest the two may be enemies. Their repeated attempts to kill each other suggest that too.
