The Lord of Demons turned him into a demon by giving him a few drops of his own blood. He soon became one of the strongest demons by devouring the female humans.

According to him, it was better to eat female humans because they had a lot of nutrients inside of them that nurtured babies. This was the reason why he ate the female humans.

When they encounter each other, Doma was devouring her disciples. He becomes happy as another meal comes in. But the last disciple begs for her life and asks for help from Shinobu. The Upper-Rank Two Demon got irritated after that and tried to kill her but The Insect Hashira saved her.

Sadly, before she thanked Kochou, the woman exploded right in front of her. Shinobu sees the hair that she wore in the past and asked him about it. He remembered that it belonged to Kanae.

Then he mocked The Insect Hashitra by saying that he couldn’t eat Kanae during that time because the sun rose. Shinobu couldn’t control her anger and she directly charged at him.

She launched a fatal attack that straight stabbed his eye because he couldn’t block. He was impressed by her swiftness.

She lost the hope of victory. Despite the serious injury, the Insect Hashira attempted to launch the final attack again.

She with her strange ability confused him and succeded in striking him again and saw him dying from the effect of her poison. However, he was able to regenerate again.

He later ended the life of Shinobu by hugging her and starting to kill her while she maliciously cursed her.

Fortunately, Doma also gets killed by the poison he soaked up from Shinobu after he got his head cut off by Kanao Tsuyuri.
