Thousand Years Ago
Long ago, Shirogane used the mask to evoke his three Power Animals' combination at the cost of becoming Rouki himself. Vainly attempting to control himself, Shirogane had his allies seal him away into a stone coffin.
In the present day, he was released by Highness Duke Org Ura, and begins exacting his 1,000-year grudge on the Gaorangers with no memory of his human life. After his revival, he attacked the Gaorangers and managed to seal away GaoElephant. Ura tried to ask Rouki to give him the sealed Gao Jewel, but Rouki refused, and stated that he will not be another Org's underling. Despite being an enemy of the Gaorangers, he healed GaoWhite when injured by TsueTsue. Later battling the Gaorangers, he summoned his Power Animals, and managed to gain the upper hand before leaving. He appeared after the Bus Org was defeated and summoned his Power Animals, and combined them into GaoHunter Evil. Defeating GaoKing, he sealed away GaoGiraffe in the aftermath of the fight.
Employing Clock Org in his battles, he had him send the Gaorangers back in time while he dueled GaoRed alone. Clock Org was later defeated, but was revived as a giant by Rouki. After Clock Org was destroyed, Rouki summoned GaoElephant and GaoGiraffe, combining with GaoGiraffe into GaoHunter Evil Spear. As Rouki defeats the Gaorangers, they were saved by their Power Animals, and Rouki retreats for the time being.
Rouki later senses a sealed Org cry out and goes to investigate. He found and broke the seal on Bike Org. He oversaw the battle between Bike Org and GaoYellow, keeping the other Gaorangers at bay as they dueled. During the fight, Tetomu defended the Gaorangers, and he began questioning her on her grandmother, Murasaki. After Bike Org was destroyed, he grew the Org and joined the fight against GaoMuscle in GaoHunter. While Bike Org was defeated, he managed to defeat GaoMuscle. As he tried to take Tetomu with him, GaoYellow defended but was defeated, with GaoBear and GaoPolar sealed as a result.
As Rouki slept, he began regaining his memories as Shirogane, and got attached to a stray puppy that wandered into his den. He interrupted the battle between the Gaorangers and the Human Body Specimen Org, the pup that he befriended was caught in the crossfire. Enraged, he attacked the Org. He later chased the pup away, reasoning he would get hurt if it had stayed. He later battled GaoKing, when a vision of GaoGod appeared pleading him to remember. Confused, he was defeated by GaoKing.
When the Gaorangers battled Lawnmower Org, Rouki appeared, but instead he slashed at the Org. In the confusion, the Gaorangers destroyed Lawnmower Org and questioned Rouki, but he left. He was later accosted by Ura, TsueTsue and Yabaiba, with them implanting an insect in his mind to control him.Under Ura's control, he surrendered the Gao Jewels that he took from the Gaorangers. He battled the Gaorangers, but during the fight the full moon faded, and he reverted back to human form. Shirogane managed to explain the ritual he used to become Rouki before the moon came back, reverting him into an Org. Rouki and the Gaorangers continued their battle in their mechas, where Tetomu realizes the Evil Spirits are concentrated in GaoLigator. With GaoRhino and GaoMadillo, GaoKing Striker managed to free Shirogane from Rouki and destroy the mask. With the mask destroyed, Rouki's spirit was freed.
Rouki later returned and attacked Shirogane. As he was about to strike down GaoSilver, the rest of the Gaorangers rescued him. Rouki was later sealed back into a mask and taken by TsueTsue and Yabaiba. Rouki reappeared and attacked GaoSilver yet again, but was finally defeated by GaoHunter's Revolver Phantom, with his horn being removed and the mask destroyed in the process.
The Thousand-Year Evil Rouki was made of escaped and scattered, with Ura cultivating it in various Orgs. Each time an Org is killed, the evil energy become even stronger. When GaoDeers sealed the energy, Ura had the Dukes capture Shirogane, who forced him to reabsorb the stronger evil energy and become Rouki again. Shirogane was able to reject the power, unaware that it was all part of Ura's plan. The Thousand-Year Evil was then absorbed into Ura, but thanks to GaoIcarus, the Thousand-Year Evil was finally destroyed for good.
