This demonic snake spirit had ambitions to gain power over all of Japan. Had it not been for Orochimaru who came out of nowhere to intervene, the lord of Echigo and regent would have died. The snake spirit and Orochimaru had staged the attack and rescue. Over time, the snake manipulated the lord into murdering all of his offspring, leaving Orochimaru as his sole successor.
