Sango is youkai slayer youkai taijiya who hails from a village of professional ykai slayers. The only member of Inuyashas group to have no supernatural powers Sango instead wields the Hiraikotsu a massive boomerang made of ykai bones in addition to a broad repertoire of tools and tricks for battling ykai. Sango is also a victim of Narakus evil schemes her family was killed and her entire village destroyed by Narakus ykai so that Naraku could then blame Inuyasha and manipulate Sango into trying to kill him. When his plot failed Naraku used a shard of the Shikon Jewel to revive and control her little brother Kohaku forcing him to fight Inuyasha and company and using him as a means by which to manipulate Sango. She seeks vengeance against Naraku but her primary goal is to rescue Kohaku from Narakus influence and somehow save his life although currently its uncertain if she will be able to do so as Kohakus life is tied to the jewel shard. She has obvious feelings towards Miroku although she is offended by his constant groping and lechery. Sango means coral.
