Kaso is a recurring demon in the series.

History[]

Kaso stands for "fiery rat," known as Huo Shu (火鼠) in China. It was made famous by the folklore the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter (竹取物語) in which Kaguya requires one of her suitors to bring the robe of Kaso fur to her for her hand in marriage. This suitor instead brings a fake to Kaguya, she then throws the robe into the fire, exposing the counterfeit because the real one is said to be incombustible.
