InuYasha is a Dog Demon/Human (a half breed or Hanyou) who was born in a small village in the Western Mountains of Otherworld. Born before cross-matings were accepted, he and his mother were shunned by the village even though his father was the great Dog Lord, Inunotaisho. Izayoi died when InuYasha was only six and he was left to fend for himself.
As he grew up, he wandered throughout Otherworld where he finally settled down near Kaede’s Village, protecting the Village although not interacting with the people.
He was bound to Princess Aara after she rejected his older brother, Sesshomaru, and has been happy and content ever since. He is truly love with Aara and very in tune with her feelings. His best friend is Kouga, although the two show their friendship by name calling.
InuYasha is 5’10” tall and has waist length snow-white hair and golden eyes. Instead of regular ears, he has fur-covered dog ears perched on the top of his head. He has the second most powerful of his father’s swords, the Tetsusaiga. This was given to him because his father promised Izayoi that the sword would always protect her.
