Or rather, a lack of information, unfortunately. I must make clear a few
things for later on, as this section grows before I begin telling you about
Kaioshin-sama. For starters, there may be spoilers- And here is one. Kaioshin
fuses with Kibito, via the Potara earrings. Fused characters are different
characters entirely, to my understanding. This is specifically a Kaioshin
shrine, so it will not deal with a fused character. Next... DragonBall
GT. I will not include anything from GT, and not just because of the fusion
mind you. (The Miko, like her older sister, thinks GT is unholy, and
disbelieves in it.) Lastly, I must credit The
Ultimate DBZ Information Site for their excellent information
for which I take absolutely no credit for finding or translating. With
that said and done, let's move on. ~ Kaioshin no Miko
The Back Story
........Kaioshin is the East (Higashi) Kaioshin.
(Gee, guess why the shrine is called ~East.
) Around five million B.C. Bibidi (Babidi's father) created
Majin Buu and went on a planet destroying spree, and then a Kaioshin killing
. The first Kaioshin killed was the West (Nishi) Kaioshin, followed by
the North (Kita) Kaioshin. The South (Minami) Kaioshin was absorbed, and
thus Buu became Huge Buu. Next would have been the Kaioshin we know, but
the Dai Kaioshin defended him and was absorbed by Majin Buu, turning Buu
into Fat Buu. Later on, Bibidi seals Buu in his ball on Earth when the
monster becomes too much to handle. At some point thereafter, Bibidi is
killed by Kaioshin, who leaves Buu in his ball on Earth.
........Above is the information from The
Ultimate DBZ Information Site's Character Guide, which is translated
from the Daizenshyu 7. Also translated is a complete timeline. The timeline
states it was the West (Nishi) Kaioshin who "manages to kill Bibidi and
leaves Buu's sphere shell on Earth." But that can't be possible if she
died first, as stated in the character guide!
Name Variations: Kaioshin, Kaioushin, Higashi (no) Kaio(u)shin,
Age: Um... a few million or more years.
Height: Um... short. Obviously.
Hair: White mohawk. Obviously.
Pixy Stick Purple! *ahem* Light purple. Again, obviously..
.......Unfortunately, there is more
contradicting information out there than just this, and as I find it and
consider its source, I will post it.
........Now for a list abilities. Again,
credit is owed to The
Ultimate DBZ Information Site. They have definitely earned
the 'Ultimate' in their name.
.........And that is about all the information
that exists or seems to findable. Over all, there are more questions than
answers it seems, but the rest is left of up to speculation and reasoning.
On a side note, Miko-sama would like to note that Kaioshin's dub seiyuu
is Kent Williams, and NOT Chuck Huber. ^.~
Kai Kai: Teleportation without the need to lock on to
someone's ki, which is required using Gokou's method.
Kanashibari no Jyutsu: This technique will freeze a person,
using psychic powers. However, the user must not get distracted, or they
will lose control of the victim.

Bushitsu Shyutsu Gen Majyutsu "Magic Materialism": Now THIS
is handy. This is the ability to create objects, such as weapons, crystal
balls, clothes, etc. (I wonder if you can create money that way...?
