Character Description: En Tao

In the Japanese version of the anime (as well as in the manga), En is Jun and Ren's father, but in the English version he's their paternal uncle. He has two forms: a normal, somewhat intimidating human form where his eyes are white, and a super scary, super-size form.

He achieves this super-size form by filling himself with his ancestors' furiyoku. He loves his niece and nephew very much but winds up cruel because he fears their turnarounds in trusting friends will lead to their demise, as it did for his ancestors. He can also talk through and control other spirits and zombies as well as create new jiang-shis by combining spirits with corpses.

He also has the Tao Family Dragon, Terror Twins, and Johto Guard. The last is lead by a jiangi-shi (you'll be shocked at who it is!) and four other zombies made of human and animal parts to give them different strengths.

Character Description: En Tao

En Tao is the leader of the Tao Clan, appearing mostly as a giant of a man. He loves his niece and nephew very much but winds up cruel because he fears their befriending of outsiders would lead to their demise, as it did for their ancestors. He can also talk through and control other spirits and zombies, such as the Terror Twins and the thousands of zombies at the Tao Clan's disposal. He also created the Johto Guard (Jiang-shi) by combining spirits with corpses (mixing some of the bodies with animal parts), making them his most powerful and loyal servants.

By the time Yoh and company faced him, En revealed the form they saw was the result of infusing all of his ancestors' furiyoku into his body. Resuming his normal, yet intimidating form after he lost enough furiyoku in the fight. After his defeat, he finally accepted Len's decision, yet doesn't approve it. He presented Len with their clan's family sword for him to use in the Shaman Finals.

En was also able to use his ancestors' furiyoku to create the Tao Family Dragon which he rides on or uses as his ultimate attack.
