(Note:Image is a grown-up version, but still close to how I imagine Usako, who is a child about Shippou's size and age.) A young rabbit youkai orphaned when a pack of feral kitsune ravaged the burrows where her small clan resided. She ran at her parents' instruction, coming into contact with InuYasha's group. Unfortunately, by the time she led them to her home, she was the only survivor of the attack, and most of the kitsune had left as well. Having nowhere else to go, Usako began traveling with InuYasha's group, usually sticking with Mei.
