Happy Mother’s Day everybody, especially to all of the moms, aunties, grannies, and awesome female role models out there. In honor of this very special day, here is my gift. A piece of Inuyasha fanart consisting of my OTP for life, Inuyasha and Ayame, along with their offspring.
So, here they are from left to right.
Inuyasha, aged 35, the Alpha Male of the Northern Yoro Tribe
Ayame, aged 32, his dearest and most loving wife
Kenta and Keita, aged 16, the eldest twin sons
Kaito, aged 15, the younger son and third child
Momoko, aged 14, the elder daughter and fourth child
Maya, aged 12, the youngest daughter
My little story behind this is that Inuyasha has moved on from Kikyo and has grown fed-up with Kagome’s constant nagging and scolding that he finally had the guts to leave her. Meanwhile, Ayame has also grown exasperated with Kouga constantly chasing after Kagome. As the two met one day in the forest complete with a lot of baggage in their systems, Inuyasha and Ayame initially vent out their frustrations towards each other. So much so, that a fistfight occurred between the two. After their bout, Inuyasha and Ayame complimented each others’ strength and combat prowess and have decided to hit it off with her introducing her grandfather to her new beau. Her grandfather was not at all convinced at first and initiated a challenge for Inuyasha to fight against an invading demon.
Come the day of the challenge and a huge, hulking, horned demon came roaring. Because of Inuyasha’s unparalleled strength, he was able to incapacitate the demon with his bare hands and claws, thus killing it. The Northern Yoro Tribe immediately welcomed Inuyasha as their own and he won Ayame’s hand in marriage. For that, a magnificent feast was held for the newlyweds.
After their marriage, Ayame desired to have children of her own. For that, Inuyasha and Ayame would have nights of passion after every battle they fought. Nine months passed, and Ayame gave birth to twins Kenta and Keita. Moreover, they had children one after the other all thanks to Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s exciting nights of passion.
Now with five children, Inuyasha and Ayame could not be any happier. In spite of all the ills and challenges, they know that they have each other as a family.
Now that the backstory is out of the way, let’s briefly talk about the children.
As the eldest twin children, Kenta and Keita have a responsibility to uphold as the heirs to the Northern Yoro Tribe. They have inherited their father’s brute strength, unwavering courage, and fierceness to the point where Inuyasha considers them his most favorite sons. Kenta and Keita have always looked up to Inuyasha as their role model and they have always aspired to be as strong as him. Growing up the twins have trained their bodies and minds to reach peak condition so that they can be able to fight alongside their father, mother, and siblings in battle. Every sunrise, Inuyasha would greet the twins by going to their bedroom and flexing his muscles, as they wake up to see their father in all of his battle-hardened glory and the twins would wake up, approach their father, and flex back. From there, a wrestling/boxing match would ensue between father and sons before and after breakfast and it would always culminate with Inuyasha, Kenta, and Keita having a laugh. In terms of distinguishing personalities, Kenta is the more large-and-in-charge, outgoing, macho twin while Keita is slightly kinder but still manages to be impulsive yet passionate. Due to their strong personalities, they would end up having skirmishes with each other and it would take the imposing presence of their parents for them to cease and desist. In spite of their skirmishes, they genuinely care for each other and have the strongest bond as twin brothers.
Kaito is a gracious, emphatic, and kind-hearted young man. However, one should be careful not to provoke nor taunt him, as he will unleash his fury all thanks to his brute strength, lightning speed, and unrelenting reflexes. While his older brothers, Kenta and Keita, are usually about muscle, Kaito relies more on tact when it comes to being in battle. He inherits both his mother’s eyes and his father’s features, as well as his mother’s highly-strung nature when it comes to getting things done. He loves nature, cares for every creature he sees, and does not want harm to come into any forest, mountain or natural resource. He was taught by both his father and mother the importance of healing and has, therefore, become reliable in knowing which plants and herbs to use on wounds or illnesses. Even though he is close to his father, he is much closer to his mother, as he finds her firm yet nurturing, soothing and kind. He does enjoy his older brothers’ company but he finds his younger sisters, Momoko and Maya, to be more approachable, thus being in touch with his feminine, sensitive side.
Momoko is an independent, free-spirited, tough young girl who enjoys sparring and does not let her inhibitions hold her back. She’s extremely close to her oldest twin brothers, even though she does tend to find their machismo rather annoying. Whenever Kenta and Keita playfully annoy her, she would always have Kaito by her side, as he shows a great deal of empathy and good cheer. Even though she does have a slightly rough outer shell, she can be sweet and be a bit of a softie to both of her parents and favorite elder brother, Kaito.
Maya is a jovial and flighty young girl who brings light, life, and love to her family. Her sunny attitude certainly makes Maya her mother’s favorite child and she brings a lot of unconditional love to her older siblings and her father. She is very playful to Kenta and Keita to the point where she enjoys dogpiling them at every opportune chance and she loves hanging out with Kaito and Momoko. Not only does she love the company of her family, but she also loves the company of woodland creatures and even new friends, thus making her all the more lovable and beautiful in her own way.
I certainly enjoyed making this, as I put a good deal of effort to make this come to fruition, especially to all of the wonderful mothers out there. I hope you all enjoyed this picture and this post, and I wish you all a blessed, prosperous, and wonderful Mothers’ Day. Take care and blessed be.
