1. A character in the anime/manga Inuyasha. Sango translates to 'coral'. Just like coral, she is beautiful, yet strong. She is the last of the Taijiya (demon hunters). Her main weapon is the Hiraikotsu, a bone boomerang. (She has other gadgets as well.) Her village was destroyed by Naraku. Naraku also gets control of Kohaku's body. (He is her brother.) This cruel act brings misery upon Sango whether to fight against her brother to reach Naraku. Her mission is to free Kohaku from the Naraku so he can live (or die) peacefully and avenge her village and family. She sides with Inuyasha, Kagome, Shippo and Miroku. She and Miroku develop a romance throughout the series.
Sango is an exceptionally good fighter, yet so tragic.
