Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 68 ends on a cliffhanger that surprised fans as the clairvoyant cyborg Eida arrives in Amado's office after Code transports her via his claw-mark. Amado also looks shocked to see one of his creations enter, and this scene comes incredibly close to confirming a new fan theory about the shonen's main antagonists.
The main villains of Boruto are the organization Kara, a group of cyborgs with powerful abilities that are helping the extraterrestrial Otsutsuki clan cultivate a new chakra fruit-bearing God Tree.
After Isshiki Otsutsuki was killed and his disciple Code replaced him as the new Kara leader, Code tried to find another Kara member, Eida, and a new theory suggests that she is the daughter of the former head of Kara organization's research and development division, Amado.
What evidence supports the theory that Eida is Amado's daughter?
In the final shot of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 68, Amado is clearly shocked to see Eida's surprising appearance. This could mean that he is her blood relative and given the mysterious scientist's earlier admission that he had a daughter who died 12 years ago, this almost indicates that she is his daughter.
It's likely that Amado's admission mentioned above is important to the overall plot, but there are other evidence that support this theory. During Eida's first conversation with Code, she showed that she has bitterness and hatred towards Amado, and it's likely that this comes from the scientist turning her into one of Kara's cyborgs, and then abandoning her for dead. Or so she believes. Isshiki ordered her to be destroyed, but Eida used her ability to charm anybody in her presence to convince the executioner to keep her alive, so it's likely that Amado truly believed that Eida was dead.
Eida previously stated that she has the power to make anyone fall in love with her except Otsutsukis and her blood relatives, and since Amado is not an Otsutsuki, her powers didn't affect Amado when she was actively present in Kara before Jigen ordered the destruction of her and Daemon.
This fan theory has been one of the most talked-about topics in the Naruto community ever since Eida's reveal in Chapter 57, the same chapter that showed Amado admitting that he had a daughter who died. The final scene of Chapter 68 is a strong evidence that shows that there could be a strong connection between the two characters, but let's take everything here with a grain of salt until the manga series officially confirms or denies this theory.
Chapter 69 showed more of Eida's powers, turning Shikimaru and Amado captives, and Amado's reaction to Eida's appearance hints that she could be his daughter.
Up until this point in the Boruto manga, Amado has been one of the most emotionally stable characters. For instance, he barely broke a sweat when he realized that his former boss Jigen had figured out that he was working with Koji Kashin, who he bio-engineered, to murder him. However, when he comes face-to-face with Eida after she enters the lab via Code's portal power, Amado's previously confident demeanor vanishes into abject shock. The reason Amado reacted that way is probably because Eida is his daughter.
Why Eida is probably not Amado's daughter
While many fans believe the theory that claims that Eida is Amado's dead daughter or a cyborg modeled after her, but after the introduction of Daemon, Eida's little brother, some fans think that this is unlikely because Amado never mentioned that he had a son.
However, it's likely that Amado also designed Daemon when he modeled a cyborg on her for Kara, so that she will have a protector. Amado's failure to protect his daughter from death could may have motivated him to create Daemon.
Also, in Chapter 69, Amado is apparently affected by Eida's charm ability, so this could be proof that he's not a blood relative to the clairvoyant cyborg because blood relatives are immune to her infatuation ability.
However, it's also possible that Amado is just pretending to be a captive of her powers, to protect her true identity. There's also a theory that suggests that Amado could be a major villain in Boruto, and you can check the details in our article about that theory here.
It's likely that we'll find out more in Boruto Chapter 75, which is set to release in Nov. 2022.
Is Kawaki related to Amado?
Like Eida, Amado seems to have a special connection to Kawaki, but based on the plot surrounding their relationship, his affection seemed connected to his goal to eliminate the Kara leader Isshiki Otsutsuki. Then after defecting to the Hidden Leaf village, his interest in Kawaki seems to be linked to using him as a tool or weapon for whatever his ultimate goal is.
As revealed in Boruto Chapter 70, Amado's concern for Kawaki is much deeper than initially shown, and more heartfelt than his reaction to seeing Eida when the clairvoyant cyborg and Code infiltrated Konoha.
For the entirely of the series, the former Kara scientist has rarely shown emotion. However, when he learned that Kawaki was coming, he becomes visibly shaken. This is surprising because this is the first time readers see Amado actually concerned for the well-being of another person.
However, so far, there's no evidence that proves that Kawaki is related to Amado.
