First appears in volume 6 of the manga. Shishio aids Tokine and Yoshimori in hunting ayakashi and protecting Karasumori. He is an "integrated half ayakashi" (ayakashi majiri), meaning he can transform part or all of his body into that of an Ayakashi. He was frequently bullied by other children and even his older brothers when he was young. When his power first fully awakened when he was ten, he almost killed his older sister and severely injured his older brothers. Afterwards he was taken in by Masamori and the Yagyou, where he was taught by Atora. Gen learned how to control his full ayakashi mode during a fight with a high level ayakashi from Kokubourou. But tragically before he could finish his opponent, Kaguro—another high level ayakashi from Kokubourou—killed Gen.
