NAME | Kaida Kagome
HOMETOWN | Osaka, Japan
NICKNAME/S | "Gokudo" (Japanese for "gangster" or "yakuza")
DATE OF BIRTH | 1987年06月14日 (June 14th, 1987)
HEIGHT | 162.56cm (5 ft 4 in)
WEIGHT | 62.14kg (137 lbs)
ALIGNMENT | Babyface (Chaotic Good)
GIMMICK & BIO |
Debut in 2018
Very little is known about Kaida Kagome's personal background, a stark contrast with the fact that her name is synonymous with brutality and mercilessness in the underground fighting circuits in the Kansai region of Japan. Feared by many and known by few, Kaida's brutal, no-nonsense fighting style which mixes elegant high-flying agility and grounded, technical bone-crunching brutality has earned her countless wins. It is rumored that she has lost some fights in her career and that the competitors who managed to defeat her have completely vanished off the face of the earth. It was also very widely speculated that Kaida had strong ties to Japan's Yakuza. Of course, she would go on to deny the allegations until Massacre #32 when she came out to the ring, accompanied by many known Yakuza, shortly before revealing herself as the Matriarch of the Kagome Family. With this fact out in the open, Kaida has begun using her "brothers" to psychologically break her opponents. Whether it's a pre-match attack or a threat made against her opponents' families or loved ones, Kaida has been sure to let everyone know that her "brothers" are willing to do anything for her. In the matches themselves, Kaida has shown that she will do anything to bring out the "inner beast" out of her opponents. If she begins to sense them giving in to her dominance, she will back away and being taunting them until they fight back.

2019
In July of 2018, the man defeated by the debuting Kaida Kagome, Joey Miles, decided to "join the Yakuza" by barging into her office. A brief headlock and rejection ensued, but Kaida eventually decided to order her right hand man to release Miles and offered a test. This test would pay off big time for both Kagome and Miles at XWA Brave New World, when they defeated Angelica Vaughn and Sarah Lacklan to secure the XWA Tag Team Championship on their debut as a team, later dubbed "Fighting Gold". The champions would go from awkward acquaintances to best friends, managing to hold onto the titles until May of 2019 before dropping them to A.J. Morales and Minka Carter. This gave both Joey and Kaida a chance to recover from nagging injuries, coming back in a big way later that year to once again challenge for the titles, much to the XWA fans' joy as they began to slowly feel enamoured of the unusual team. Kagome's rough exterior began to unravel as she felt comforted by the fact that Joey Miles had her back while the fans began to cheer her on, a feeling she wasn't accustomed to. The night of XWA Massacre #51 proved to be an eventful one. Shortly after announcing their open challenge for the night, Troy Spencer made his debut by interrupting the former champions and revealing that he was the man responsible for the list Kaida Kagome had when she debuted, a list that contained the names of several members of ELITE. Deciding she'd heard enough of the man known as the "Vigilante", Kagome accepted his challenge for a match at XWA On a Boat, but soon realized that she was goaded into accepting a match that, if she lost, would mean that she must retire. With tensions running high, Kaida's night would end with Jerod Barnez & Ace Acid, two men who'd challenged her and her partner earlier in 2019, accepting their open challenge. After a grueling match, both Kaida and Joey, two people who owed Jerod Barnez a beating, managed to defeat him and Ace Acid, solidifying that they were still a force to be reckoned with. The night seemed like it was about to end on a happy note, but that's when the unthinkable happened: Joey Miles, Kaida's partner and now best friend, brutally attacked her. The merciless Kaida was almost unrecognizable as she attempted to reason with him, clearly heartbroken and confused as to why he was attacking her. Nevertheless, Joey Miles had crossed a line, and despite the fans booing him at the top of their lungs, he left Kaida Kagome battered and broken in the ring, ending their partnership and friendship. It would later be confirmed that Kaida had suffered a rib injury, a fractured jaw and a concussion. Disappearing without a trace, Kaida's XWA contract expired at the end of 2019, spelling the end of her career.

2020
XWA Lord of the Ring. As Sean Young walked away from the ring, leaving a defeated Joey Miles behind him, a security guard was sent flying through the curtains behind him. Moments later, Kaida Kagome, dressed in street clothes and sporting much longer hair since the last time we'd seen her, made her first public appearance in almost a full year. Seeing nothing but red, the fans exploding with cheers and Sean Young approving of her return through the simple act of a pat on her shoulder as he left the building, Kaida Kagome made a beeline to the ring, briefly managing to get her hands on Joey Miles before his sister, Alicia Miles, attempted to rescue Joey and ended up getting knocked out cold by the furious Kaida Kagome. Despite not being signed to the XWA, Kaida Kagome has made it clear that her career is far from over and that she will stop at nothing to exact her vengeance upon her former best friend. Revenge, however, won't come easy...

THEME SONG | "Turning Point" by Hidenori Shoji
EXAMPLE OF ENTRANCE | The arena’s lights go out as "Turning Point" by Hidenori Shoji begins to play. A shadowy figure is barely visible at the top of the ramp. About 17 seconds in, the theme song fully kicks in and the lights turn back on as the titantron displays a name: “KAGOME”. Kaida stands at the top of the stage, leaning against a sheathed katana before making her way down the ramp, dressed in her signature ring gear and a black blazer with a dragon stenciled on the back of it. She completely ignores everyone in the crowd as she walks down the ramp, both fans and haters alike. Upon reaching the ring, she holds her katana horizontally in front of her face before biting down on it; her teeth firmly gripping the sheathed blade. She jumps up, grabbing onto the middle ropes as she pulls herself up on the apron. She turns to the ringside cameraman, slowly taking the katana out of her mouth, following that gesture with a sinister smile before finally stepping between the ropes. She gracefully places the katana on the canvas before suddenly ripping her blazer off, exposing her terrifying dragon tattoo. The anxious cameraman zooms in on her masterful tattoo. Shortly after, Kaida turns to the camera, staring a hole through the lens as a sinister smile forms across her face.

BIOGRAPHY | Born to an American mother and a Japanese father, Junichi would go on to spend most of his life in the United States when his father was forced to flee with his family after "betraying" the Shibata Yakuza family when he refused to murder a politician. At the age of 25, Junichi's father passed away. Due to this unfortunate event, Junichi decided to move back to Japan to rediscover himself. News of his return spread fast and as he began teaching English at a university, the Shibata Family had eyes on him. After a year passed, they decided to strike by kidnapping him before explaining what his father had done to them. As the gears began turning in Junichi's head, he realized that the Shibata Family were the reason his father had to spend his life in hiding, so he decided to "apologize" for his father's actions and begged to make up for his mistake by joining them. In reality, he would wait for his moment to strike and take over the entire family. As he began climbing the ranks, that was when he met Kaida Kagome...

BASIC INFORMATION
NAME | Kimiko Kagome
FAMILY ROLE | Lieutenant
HOMETOWN | Osaka, Japan
DATE OF BIRTH | 1997年02月10日 (February 10th, 1997)
HEIGHT | 152.40cm (5 ft 5 in)
WEIGHT | 58.21kg (128 lbs)
ALIGNMENT | Tweener
BIOGRAPHY | In October of 2004, a young soldier for the Shibata Family witnessed a homeless seven year old girl getting harassed by two rival Yakuza members. Realizing the two gangsters had bad intentions, she single-handedly dismantled both men, rescuing the little girl. That young soldier was Kaida Kagome, an upstart in the Shibata Family, an organization she joined shortly after abandoning her past life as a student. The little girl was simply known as Kimiko, raised by a homeless elderly man who had recently passed away. Realizing that Kimiko had nowhere to go and was surviving on her own, Kaida decided to take the young girl under her wing, going on to juggle her life as a member of a thriving Yakuza family and her role as Kimiko's guardian. Despite Kaida's attempts to shield the little girl from the darker side of her life, Kimiko would rebel as a teenager, much like Kaida herself did. For that reason, Kaida decided to let Kimiko choose her path in life but made sure to protect her if she ever found herself in a similar situation to the one she was in when Kaida first met her. Fast forwarding to present day, Kimiko has become the Lieutenant of the Kagome Family, formerly the Shibata Family before it was taken over by Kaida and Junichi. As a young woman, Kimiko is an overly energetic yet capable right hand for Kaida. Viewing Kaida as an older sister rather than a mother, she finds it easy to be forward and honest with her onee-chan(Japanese for "big sister"). Growing up idolizing her guardian, she found herself following in Kaida's shoes, proving to be an extremely capable fighter before being trained by Kaida to prep her for her role as the family's lieutenant. When Kaida decided to finally pursue her dream of becoming a professional wrestler, she left Kimiko in charge back in Japan. But after witnessing her idol losing for the first time, Kimiko decided to move to Chicago so she could be closer to her onee-chan.
