Konda's Crime[edit | edit source]
Konda wanted to ensure eternal peace and prosperity for his people, the denizens of Towabara (and the whole of Kamigawa). In order to achieve this objective, he did not hesitate to change the whole world. With the help of the results of Eight-and-a-Half-Tails' research, personal participation of ambassador Meloku of the soratami, Sensei Hisoka of Minamo, General Takeno, and an outbreak of sympathetic spiritual energy accompanying the birth of his daughter Michiko, he performed a sacrilegious ritual. During this he broke the barrier between the mortal and spirit world, captured and imprisoned a major spirit - an important part of O-Kagachi himself. That Which Was Taken became his major interest, allowing him to stop aging and technically become immortal. Konda's crime triggered the Kami War, a devastating, twenty-year conflict between Kamigawa's mortal and spiritual worlds.
The Reckoning[edit | edit source]
At the climax of the Kami War, Konda and O-Kagachi were struck down by their daughters Michiko Konda and Kyodai (the Taken One), respectively. After her release, the Taken One punctured Konda's eyes, then petrified his immortal body and crushed him into a million pieces. Hundreds of years later, Konda's undying remains presumably still lie in the Jukai Forest.
