Nada was originally a student of Master Black alongside Bamba, with the intention of becoming Ryusoul Green. However, he was passed over for the position in favor of his fellow pupil’s younger brother.
Apprenticed at some point by Master Red, Nada originally thought of Ryusoul Red as the group leader, and sought to become one due to believing his high performance in battle would gain him the position. Unfortunately, these thoughts are what didn't get him chosen as a Ryusoulger, and he soon began going on a quest to find a place in the world. When he encountered Koh, a squire of Master Red who did become Ryusoul Red, Nada attempted to pass on his ideas, but he only realized his foolishness after retrieving Kishiryu Chibigaroo.
After being rejected as Ryusoul Red, Nada began looking for a way to prove everyone wrong, eventually hitting upon the use of Gaisoulg's armor, scouring the cosmos before being led to planet Nemesis. Shortly after Towa and Bamba defeated Rita (who was the user of the Gaisoulg armor in that moment) on planet Nemesis, the Gaisoulg armor was scattered on the remains battlefield, Nada (who mysteriously was also on the planet), took Gaisoulg’s helmet from the flames and left with it. Wearing the armor, he eventually gained Master Green's memories. Although he became an unbeatable warrior thanks to the armor, the sheer violence of it all made him find it less fun than he had hoped.
Return as Gaisoulg
Nada, now under the identity of Gaisoulg, released Kishiryu DimeVolcano for Wizeru’s purposes. However, the Kishiryu was obtained by the Ryusoulgers first. The night after the Ryusoulgers defeated the Shen Minosaur, Gaisoulg met with Wizeru and Kureon mocking the first for allowing the Ryusoulgers to obtain DimeVolcano, which made Wizeru angry and had a small fight with him. Angrily Wizeru asks him why he didn’t get rid of the Ryusoulgers by himself which Gaisorg responded that it was pointless as Wizeru wanted "entertainment". Gaisoulg tells Wizeru that he's going to let him know if he finds something interesting before leaving.
Nada as Gaisoulg later approached Prime Minister Mioko Karino (who apparently recognized him) at her hospital room who tells her that he could have killed her if she wanted. Mioko responded that she and him are similar as both wander with nowhere to belong. Mioko tells Gaisoulg that he might be having trouble to let his past glory go and according to her, Gaisoulg could create a Minosaur by this rate. While Mioko leaves, Gaisoulg asks her where she’s going which she answers where she belongs as she finally found her place.
Nada as Gaisoulg meets face to face with Towa who was the last Ryusoulger standing as the others were captured by Wizeru with the power of the Grimoire Minosaur. Gaisoulg had a small battle with Towa in which he easily defeated him. Before leaving, Gaisoulg told Towa “to not rely on his strengths and bring them to life instead” which were the same words that Towa and Bamba’s master used to say.
Encountering the Ryusoulgers
Nada shows himself under his true identity first to Canalo (RyusoulGold), he requests him to take him to the other Ryusoulgers, telling them that he wants to join them on their fight against the Druidon. Later while the Ryusoulgers were fighting the Dodomeki Minosaur, Nada as Gaisoulg attacks and defeats them telling Koh that “The Fun is just beginning” before leaving.
Succumbed to the armor and Joining with the Ryusoulgers
Nada eventually reached the point where he could not control Gaisoulg, subsequently allowing the armor to assume control over his mind.
In a new vessel, Gaisoulg finds the Ryusoulgers whom were engaged in battle with Gachireus and Jack-o'-lantern Minosaur. Gaisoulg interrupts the battle with a savage assault, forcing the Druidon Tribemen to retreat. With only the Ryusoulgers remaining, the heroes made a valiant attempt to free Nada. Using the DoshinSoul, Towa managed to weaken Nada's body enough to bait Gaisoulg into abandoning Nada's body for a new host. Melt assists by having the Jack-o'-lantern Minosaur use its candy beam powers to extract the hatred from the Gaisoulg armor, forcing Gaisoulg to seek another host. Attempting to possess Koh, the armor was restrained by the other Ryusoulgers, allowing the hatred within the armor to be completely dispelled in shower of rainbow rain.
Following the defeat of the Jack-o'-lantern Minosaur, the Ryusoulgers return to the Tatsui residence and is startled by the sudden appearance of Nada wearing the Gaisoulg armor. To their surprise, he showed that he was in full control (using the Gaisoul Ken as a back scratcher, in a moment of levity). Removing his helmet, Nada expressed gratitude towards his fellow tribesmen and offered to "repay" Towa for using the DoshinSoul on him.
Nada's last fight would be against Uden. Even with the help of Gaisoulg's armor, the Druidon general managed to fatally wound him. However, Nada manages to headbutt Uden's buckle, allowing Koh to escape from the Druidon Pocket dimension. As Nada succumbed to his wound, his body and spirit reformed as the Max RyuSoul and the Gaisoulg Armor changes into the Max Ryusoul Changer, allowing Koh to avenge him by killing Uden as Max Ryusoul Red.
A few hours after Nada's death, Ui found a video that he had recorded at some unspecified time. In it, he announces that he's thinking of going away to train for a while. He compliments each member of the Ryusoulgers and, once again, thanks them for saving him from the Gaisoulg armor. The Ryusoulgers raise their swords in salute to him as the sunsets.
When a revived Eras gave happy dreams to all living beings so they could sleep in ignorance of the world being destroyed, Koh's dream featured Nada being alive and well and the two meeting up to play ping-pong together.
After the final battle against Eras, Koh set up a proper grave for Nada at the Cliffs of Trials. He left the Max Ryusoul Changer by it, the only arsenal to still have its power (due to the fact it's Nada's spirit empowering it and not the Kishiryu). Koh approached the tomb and changer, which reacted and created Nada's spirit in front of Koh, who smiles to see his lost friend once again.

Powers & Abilities
