BIO:

Shinnosuke Kagami is one of the four guardians of "Hell's Gate", a portal that allows demons and evil energy to seep through to the mortal plane humans call Earth. He represents Suzaku, the Red Phoenix. Kagami he has grown angry at the foolishness and weakness of the humans he protects, and desires instead to open to Gates of Hell and begin a new world order.. beginning with the destruction of humankind and his domination over all, of course. Upon his decision, he goes on a horrific killing spree, murdering various warriors. One of these warriors is Gaisei, the well-respected teacher of Kaede, Moriya, and Yuki.

After five years of preparatory action to unseal the gate, including imprisoning his fellow guardian, Shigen, Shinnosuke is eventually found by Kaede, who has the latent power of the Seiryu. Kaede defeats him; humiliated by his defeat, Shinnosuke is thrown into the depths of Hellís Gate as eternal punishment. However, he is soon reincarnated in a new form to fulfill his role as a guardian, as the portal is being opened by another force. Shinnosuke sets out to fulfill his destiny, and to seek atonement.

Was Kyo a samurai in another life? lol. Besides looking like a bit one of those Kyo clones named 'Kusanagi', Kagami has a pretty unique get-up. His coat / outfit is a bit strange-looking... I'm not sure if he's a vampire or a Japanese wizard of some sort, but I haven't seen another character wearing what he's wearing. I suppose you could say that makes him unique.

For some reason, Kagami didn't impress me too much as the "boss" of The Last Blade. I was expecting better from SNK. Furthermore, Kagami's animations are a bit stiff considering others from the series. Even so, I'm sure some people enjoy using him. I do like his story though... New World Order? Heh heh.
