Koda was an assassin member of the Tortoise Clan.
Daidoji Dajan an Asako Nakiro had made him immortal. If he died his soul would return to the Shimushigaki, a gaki who lived inside Nakiro's body. The gaki would transfer Koda into a new body, twisting its shape until it resembled Koda's in all ways, complete with the scars from the wounds that killed him last. 
Destroyed Again, ... Edit
Koda returned to life again, and sought Ozaki. He found him at Yasuki Yashiki, took Ozaki by suprise and knocked him out. A party of samurai confronted Koda, who was killed again. His body blackened and melted into a puddle of black goo. 
... and Again Edit
Koda was onboard the vessel from where Kitsune Hamato cast a powerful earthquake, provoking an unnatural tsunami which hit the coast near Friendly Traveler Village and the Fields of the Morning Sun. The group of samurai survived and onboard a borrowed koutetsukan rammed Koda's ship. Koda was again murdered by them while he was protecting Hamato. 
Shimushigaki's Fate Edit
The Shimushigaki was eventually put to sleep,  and Koda most probably died forever as well.
