Yashiro Nanakase is one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Orochi and serves as a darker counterpart to Goro Daimon.
Yashiro, also known as Shrine of the Seven Shackles and Dauntless and Decisive, is the leader of the Orochi team (which went by the name New Faces Team in The King of Fighters 97').
In The King of Fighters XV, he still serves Orochi and his goal of destroying mankind alongside teammates Shermie and Chris.
He is also a Guitarist and Singer of CYS, taking part in songwriting. Yashiro also operates as a manager and arranges performances with venues. Nanakase is the antagonist of Iori Yagami after an incident when a nightclub canceled Yashiro's band in favor of his jazz band.
Yashiro has quite a chill personality, but he can't keep his composure when someone pisses him off.
Yashiro is devastatingly strong in close combat and capable of delivering a lightning hail of blows due to his unorthodox physical abilities. He mainly fights with his fists but combines them with acrobatic counterattacks with his feet in a style similar to Capoeira.
Yashiro shortens his white hair and wears a distinctive red leather jacket and gloves.
