Chronology

Kagari was a veteran of the Great Disaster of Sagami Bay, a large-scale attack by an Aradama twenty years prior to the present time.

During the attack, Kagari attempted to seal the great Aradama using her Jin'i. Minato Etou chased after her. Due to their actions, Yukari Origami made a pact with Taigitsuhime in an attempt to save Kagari and Minato. This did not stop both their lives from being shortened by their use of Jin'i as well as losing most of their Toji powers.

After the disaster, Kagari was unofficially dismissed from Toji duty, all records of her time as Toji were removed. When Minato dies, she blames herself for her death. She becomes bedridden due to a disease some time after, and passed away a year prior to the start of the series.
