and came back to the past to "finish" her duties. Her soul was divided and split into a body of clay and dirt, and now her vengeful fake body roams the lands with only one thing in mind, to bring Inuyasha to hell, for she thinks he had betrayed her, those many years before.
Also known as Kikyo
thanks to the mistold English translaters.
A priestess who died 50 years ago in the protection of the shikon no tama (jewel of four souls). She tells her younger sister to cremate her along with the jewel, but what she didn't know was that she was going to have a reincarnation of herself. Inuyasha's in love with her, and only likes Kagome because she's the reincarnation of the priestess. Kikyou gets ressurected from the evil witch Urasue, who stole her ashes from her gravesite. Kikyou only remembers when Inuyasha attacked her, so it's only obvious she would get upset and start attacking him right away, she's really not an evil person. Inuyasha trys explaining to her, only causing Kikyou to get more upset. But Inuyasha still loves Kikyou, and Kikyou may feel the same way with the way she's going in the series.
Kagome: ...Inuyasha's been taken away from me...
Kikyou: Oh go cry about it!
