He always wore court robes and was very fat. Due to his obesity, Ketsu Shi has more than a chin and has proeminent lips. His face has some warts.
Most of his plans to kill Ei Sei were futile as his assassins were intercepted by Shin.
After Shin defeated Rankai, the court decided to flee even as Sei Kyou threatened the ministers with a death penalty should they decide to abandon him. He also tried to leave but he was slowed down by Ka Ryo Ten and killed by Ba Jio and Shunmen.
His death demoralized the Sei Kyou faction's troops and caused most of the troops to surrender to Ei Sei's army.
It seems as though Ketsu Shi rarely opens his eyes. Whenever any slip of a pupil is seen, it is usually when he is angry or in shock.
The person closest to Ketsu Shi is his strategist Shi Shi.
