After the XVII Century war, Dohko lives at the Five Peaks of Mount Lu in China, alone with Shunrei, an orphan girl he took on his care. Dohko is also the master of Dragon Shiryu and Ohko, who is an anime-only character. Dohko represents a father figure to Shiryu, who often recalls his wise teachings whenever facing difficulty in battle. He is often seen as an adviser of the main characters and a good friend of Aries Mu, Shion’s disciple.
When Dohko was young, he was much more vivid and rather impulsive. After regaining his young form during the Hades chapter, he retains the behavior of his youth, albeit much more circumspect and mindful, as a result of his almost three centuries of experience as a Saint. Gemini Saga said that he is the strongest Saint (manga volume 7)
