Nekoyasha by QueenNekoyasha Nekoyasha by QueenNekoyasha
My very first OC/FC/etc. Purring since 2004.

Name: Nekoyasha (cat demon)
Gender: female
Age: appears 15, but at least 50 years older
Hair color: dark brown
Hair style: very long and straight
Eye color: golden yellow
Appearance notes: She wears a black sleeveless Chinese dress shirt with golden accents and red priestess pants (mostly like what Inuyasha wears). She has black cat ears on top of her head and long cat claws. Once she dissolves the tribe’s heirloom, the Gift (a stone believed to be given to her ancestors from a cat goddess that would give a cat demon blessed power), she grows a long black cat tail. She has a mark of the kanji for "cat demon" on the back of her neck, given to her when she was a baby. She becomes fully human on the night of the new moon and becomes fully demon on the night of the full moon.
Bio: Her mother, Hineko, was the leader of the cat demon tribe and wanted to put a permanent end to the Gift, due to the fact that whenever it falls into the hands of someone who is not a cat demon, they turn into a Hellcat, which has the power to destroy 100 cat demons. Hineko wanted to produce a hybrid heir in which the stone would have no choice but to dissolve into nothingness and grant her heir permanent power. She disguised herself as a beautiful maiden and met the brother of Izayoi (Inuyasha’s mother; Hineko found it easy for her as Izayoi also had a hybrid child, thus their children wouldn’t be so alone) and they fell in love. After Nekoyasha was born, her father was angered at the fact that he had been tricked by a cat demon to create a hybrid child and rejected Nekoyasha completely, but in secret Nekoyasha was schooled by the most powerful priestesses in the kingdom by day, and trained by Hineko by night. When she reached the age of 15, her mother’s tribe was attacked by a horde of demons. Hineko died in the battle and Nekoyasha was paralyzed and frozen in an ice chamber for 50 years. She saw the physical appearance of Naraku before she passed out. After the 50 years, her ice chamber was melted by the fire cat demons of her mother’s tribe. They gave her a sword that Hineko had ordered to be made especially for Nekoyasha since she was pregnant with her, called Shirotora, to her when she awoke. But they also said that at the moment of her mother’s burial, the Gift was nowhere to be found. Ever since then, Nekoyasha’s been searching all over the land for the missing stone. While on her journey, she's reunited with her cousin Inuyasha and Koga, whom she met before her tribe was attacked when he was younger.
Personality notes: Nekoyasha is a leader type of person. She’s strong and brave and smart. She cares for her cat demon tribe and is not much of a killer. She only kills when she has to, like if there’s a demon putting her and/or her tribe in danger. She loves her family very much. Due to her father’s rejection toward her, she doesn’t care much for humans, but was respectful to her priestess teachers and is pretty kind to Inuyasha’s friends. Although a cat, she has a soft spot for canines, so she's really close with her cousin and she finds herself in love with Koga.
Special abilities/weapons: She wields the blade Shirotora. It was forged by a monk and when it slices at a demon or any kind of evil, the demon/evil gets exorcised. She has special priestess abilities (known as the "Feline Priestess").
