Eventually though, Kotaro betrayed and murdered Shiro, just as he had murdered Shiro's family. He was resurrected by the spirit of life, Seishin, who told him he could not be granted the eternal peace of death until he found and destroyed the Five Eternal Demons he released thanks to Kotaro's trickery.
