Kouga is the young leader of the Wolf-Demon Tribe. He is strong, nut runs away from battles he knows he can't win. He posesses two shards of the Shikon No Tama (Shikon Jewel) in both of his legs, giving him the ability to run at super fast speeds (he used to posess another in his right arm, but it got torn out by the King of the Birds of Paradise). Kouga fell in love with the girl Kagome after kiddnapping her and planning to use her as his "sacred jewel detector", but now he wants her as his mate. Of course, Inuyasha, or "mutt-face", is in his way. A new rivalry between the half-breed and wolf are made for Kagome's attention (and love).
Naraku, the evil villian of "Inuyasha", played a trick on most of Kouga's men in his tribe and his nieghboring tribe using Kagura to slaughter them all. Now Kouga will stop at nothing to get revenge for his fallen commrades.
