Ando was an anthropomorphic dog headman of a small village in the lands of Lord Hirone.
Ando's village was besieged by the Komori ninja after a hunter discovered their base of operations in the area. Ando sent his son with the ronin Miyamoto Usagi to try to warn a nearby gold mine that the Komori ninja intended to steal a gold shipment from them. Ando's son was slain and Usagi was captured by the ninja. After Usagi's escape, he warned Ando that the ninja intended to attack that night to kill all possible witnesses to their crime. Ando organised the villagers to fight back, and the village was saved.
