Yama was dissatisfied with the secluded life of his clan, and believed that gargoyles should live more openly with humans. He therefore entered into a covert alliance with Taro, arranging for the building of a "gargoyle theme park" near Ishimura and the secret transportation of his clan there in its stone sleep. Yama believed that, here, his kind would gradually be introduced to the human world; he believed that Taro’s intentions mirrored his own.
But he soon discovered that Taro really intended to display the gargoyles as freaks and curiosities to gawking human tourists. Disgusted at the man’s falsehood, he defeated him in single combat, thus freeing the clan from him.
However, because he had still assisted Taro in the original act of betrayal, Yama was banished from Ishimura until he could find some way of redeeming himself. He will, in time, join the Redemption Squad, if against his will, and will not get along well with Fang while a member of it.
Yama and Sora are mates, although Yama’s exile from Ishimura has, for the moment, raised a barrier between them.
