When the team split up briefly, Keigo started walking through the American desert. He gathered followers who joined him on his walk. What they thought he was leading them too he didn’t pay much attention. He’d simply felt it was the right thing to do.

Following their dealing with the troubles in Japan he began spending time in Las Vegas, hitting casinos (in a non criminal way) with Doc Dread and the Royal Flush Gang.

Design notes

I’ve read some sites referencing that his powers come from his shoes and battery pack.

But there’s no evidence in what I’ve read. And the way he sometimes talks too fast and can search a large building in seconds implies faster cognitive abilities which are less easily explained by being artificially derived.
