Chagan Shaman (チャガン・シャマン, Chagan.Shaman), or Baba (ババ, Baba), was the Head of the Kouga Clan and the adoptive mother of Aladdin, responsible for teaching him the meaning of Rukh. Unfortunately, she was a casualty during the negotiations between the Kouga clan and the Kou Empire.
Baba was an old woman, with a very short height. She had a stick like wand with her all the time, which was later given to Aladdin.
Baba was a very kind woman and took care of Aladdin like her own son. She did not know him for very long, but they grew close after she clear up some of Aladdin's questions about what he was. She seemed to have some knowledge about Magic, since she knew what a Magi actually was. She seemed to be a very logical woman, since she was able to keep the Kouga clan out of conflict for 50 years.
Nothing is known about her past besides that she has the been the leader of the Kouga Clan for over 50 years.
Baba is first seen when Aladdin wakes up, and she explains to him that she can see the Rukh and explains to Aladdin what he is. She also meets with Hakuei, who wishes for them to unite with the Kou Empire. She later that night adopts Aladdin as her own stating, "You're Baba's child too".
Later on, when the girls were kidnapped, Baba prayed for Dorji and the others to return home without injuring a single person from the Kou army. When everyone was safe and at home, she walks off and ponders for the future and then is suddenly shot by an arrow from one of the Kou soldiers. She is carried away using Aladdin's magic turban, and he says to her "don't die".
Seeing Baba being shot makes the Kouga clan believe Kou wants to go to war and are preparing themselves for the confrontation, even when Dorji tries to persuade them otherwise. Just after they attack Hakuei, Baba suddenly appears, still mortally wounded, but agrees with Hakuei to join the Kou Empire, much to the disbelief of others. But since it was Baba, they agreed as well and dropped their weapons.
Later that day, Baba died, with Toya, Dorji and the other members crying mournfully. Aladdin sees an image Baba, who is smiling happily. Aladdin stated how loved Baba seemed and how he'd miss her, but she claims she is just returning to where all life originated and that she will always be at Aladdin's side. She then disappears into the Rukh stream and leaves her staff to Aladdin. She is last seen being covered and flowered by the Kouga clan.
Baba helped Aladdin understand who he was and even let him into their family as her own, since he had never had a family. They grew very close, Baba being like an adoptive mother. Aladdin was distraught when Baba had died.
- Since she can see Rukh, it is possible that she is technically a magician, and the reason she can't use magic is that she is untrained.
