He is less sinister a character in the anime and instead seems more like a disturbed and troubled man trying to fight his dragon. He is much calmer and more caring until he awakes his dragon. Sousou Moutoku is shown appearing out of nowhere behind Kakouen Myousai, after seeing him, Myousai starts crying and it is seen that he comforts her, perhaps showing that he really does treasure Kakouen.
