17 years before the start of the first tournament, his brother Raidou raped Ayame. This led to Ayane's pregnancy and childbirth. Although Hayate and Kasumi are considered their heirs, Ayane is plagued by the truth of her birth and is isolated because of Ayame's shame. When Ayane was older, Ayame revealed to her that she was her mother. This led to Ayane's embarrassment to Kasumi.

Ayane is upset, Ayame comforted her daughter. However, Ayame told Ayane that the blood in Ayame's veins flowed in Ayane, Kasumi, and Hayate and their family bonds were stronger than any shinobi code.
