In her Fangire form, she could fire energy stingers and teleport by dissolving into dust.
She was captured and used as a test subject by ex-Wonderful Blue Sky Organization scientist Dr. Kanda (神田博士 Kanda Hakase) in his Evolved Lifeform Research Lab. Kanda fed Kaede the life energy of other Fangire so she would become stronger, allowing her to severely wound Rising Ixa. However, Kaede revealed that she was using Kanda killed him because she no longer needed him. The Horsefly Fangire then kidnapped Mio Suzuki to become even more powerful. However, this act angered Taiga Nobori, who destroys Kaede for her cannibalism and attempt to kill Mio.
