Kirara , "Kilala" in the English anime dub, is Sango's faithful demon-cat companion who usually appears to be a small kitten-sized feline with two tails, but can become large enough to carry several passengers whenever the need arises. Her full-sized form has more prominent fangs, flames around her feet and tail, and enough power to fly through the air fast enough to keep up with Inuyasha's top speed. In her small form, she is small and cute, with no fangs, wide eyes, and two tails. It is made apparent that Kirara once belonged to Midoriko when they go to her cave for the first time. When Kohaku's memory returns, Kirara is the first character to find out. Following the destruction of both Naraku and the Shikon Jewel, Kirara became partners with Kohaku on his quest to slay demons for those in need.
