- Primary article: Shiro Tagachi
Shiro Tagachi was a powerful assassin who commanded an army of Shiro'ken and created the Afflicted in Cantha. Originally a loyal and ambitious guardsman, Shiro Tagachi was noticed by Emperor Angsiyan due to his prowess with weapons and thus invited to join the imperial Guard as the emperor's favored bodyguard. During his service as both a guardsman and later bodyguard, a demon sent by Abaddon had disguised itself as a Fortune Teller and consulted Shiro multiple times, eventually telling him that he would be killed by the emperor during the Harvest Festival. This caused him to turn to forbidden magic, breaking imperial law, and led him down the path of insanity.
