Kikyo was a very powerful priestess during the Sengoku jidai and, at one time, Inuyasha's main love interest. She was entrusted by the yokai taijiya to guard and purify the Shikon no Tama. Along with her younger sister, Kaede, Kikyo dedicated her life to protecting the jewel, slaying many demons in the process and thus could not live a normal life like other girls.
