Through Kishirika, Badigadi gets to hear about Rudeus. He heads to the Ranoa Magic Academy, where Rudeus is headed with Elinalise. He shows up at the magic academy and challenges Rudeus to a duel as a result of jealousy from hearing Kishirika talk about Rudeus.

This has also been shown in the official trailer, we see him standing tell in front of Rudeus and Sylphy. His association with the Hitogami and his interest in Rudeus are bound to overlap at some point in the story.
