Very little is known about Shikazo as his past is still shrouded in mystery. Shikazo was a distant relative of Tsukado, a master swordsman. He was killed at the hands of Kageki, the twin brother of Katazu, by accident.
Shikazo made his debut in the anime with the Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha. In the storyline, it was revealed that at some point in time, Shikazo borrowed some money from Kageki. When Kageki needed the money for his family, he asked Shikazo to return the money that he had borrowed from him.
To Kageki’s surprise, Shikazo refused to pay him back, which resulted in a fight between the two. Unfortunately, during this chaos, Shikazo fell and hit his head hard on a pickling stone and met his demise. Katazu, Kageki’s twin brother, took the blame for Shikazo’s death to save his brother.
Kageki and his family went into hiding while Katazu attracted the pursuers looking to take revenge for Shikazo’s death. Tsukado, a master swordsman and a distant relative of Shikazo was chosen to track down Katazu and eliminate him to avenge Shikazo’s death.
