I know, this is a funny skin for such a journal, but I like the menu in the top corner. I even customized it so you can jump to my stories, especially 'Together' my first Inuyasha story. 

Now before you go to see it, know that it has a yaoi/gay couple in it. I also put Kagome with Sessomaru and Sango ended up with Kouga. 

How does this end up with me asking for research help?

Well I knew for the last 30 chapters of the other story, that I would have to do a story that was mostly about Sango and Kouga and I'm starting to really think about details for it now. I'm starting to wonder how I'm going to explain why part of Kouga's tribe/clan/pack is human/demon, while the other part is wolf. I want to explain this, but I want to know what canon has to say about this, if it does at all, and what other writers have come up with to explain this. 

I did a lot of research for my first Inuyasha story, and I don't remember coming across something that would explain this, so I'm not even sure there is canon to help me here. 

I need to answer this for myself before starting this story. So can anyone help me?
Most of my stories are gay/yaoi (whichever you like to use), and I'm sure that the gay couple from the first story will show up a few times since I haven't come up with a story line yet, but this will be a hetero story. 

For some reason I felt like I saying that. :)

I don't believe that the cannon story ever truly explained why some demons are in a humanoid form and some remain in a beast form.  Many of the fanfics I have read have stated that this is due to a demon's strength.  The stronger the demon, the more 'human' he/she would look. (so the wolves that look like wolves would be the lower minions to the higher ranking/stronger beings in the pack. It's something you could really do your own thing with.

Ok, ok.... I can go with that.

But I have a question, I have a lot of questions but just one for now.

Does this mean that his parents can still be in wolf form? We saw ever one else's mom and dad, but I don't recall ever seeing his or heard them being mentioned.

Here's the Wiki for Kouga.  He's only mentioned as the youngest leader the tribe has had.  From this it could be assumed that his father may have been killed thereby letting Kouga assume the mantle of leadership sooner then would be expected.…

As far as what form they would have... Looking at Shippo, who's father was in fox form when he died, you could say that Shippo is stronger then his father because he is able to assume the humanoid form and maybe his father didn't (though maybe he did and was only in fox form because he was battling for his life)
Looking at Sesshoumaru's parents, they both had humanoid forms and could transform and both were renowned for being very strong.  I would say take this approach with Kouga's parents and say they were killed off.  The wolves wouldn't follow a weak alpha.
Just my thought.

Ok, I can go with the shape changing/shifting. I was ok with it from the earlier suggestion. But I can see how his father and or mother does it and how he's better at it then they were/are. 

I added the 'are' because we have already meet his mother in my first story. She's very humanoid, but that isn't to say that I can't have her 'slip' every now and again, now that I have this new take on his clan. 

As for his father, sure, dying or being killed could have Kouga becoming leader young. I don't think I fought that fact in the last book. I think I have to look it up. I kinda remember having him talk about his dad, and how they came to the Sess' home when his dad was still around. 

Good grief. If I go back to look that now, I may not come up for a while. But I'm just fighting what I have to do. I need to go through that, clean up what I miss, get details for this next story and then find someone to do a real cover for it. I just wish I knew what I wanted as a proper cover. 

Ok... something else. So have sorted out how Kouga is human looking, but what about the rest of his clan? We have a few of them walking around on two legs all the time too. 

It could be a generation thing. :shrug: Pure wolves go touched by magic some how or over time, and every few genarations something changes for them. And now around the time where magic seems to leaving the land, they get their last 'growth spurt' so to speak, and it's with Kouga's and they get to walk and be human looking all the time if they wanted to. The last one almost had it, they had to try, but it was easier than their parents and so and so forth. 

How about that? That would be why all the really old folks were still wolves almost all the time. .... No... why am I remembering something about that now. 

I have to really read over my story. I put so much into it. 

I'll check out the link later. 

Thank you. I think you really helped. :D

The changing could be a 'curse' (or blessing) depending on how you want to take the tale. Every few generations humanoid wolves can walk among man.  Just remember though, even Kouga never fully transformed like Sesshoumaru. (ol' wolfie still had his tail to wag) :)  And it wasn't just Kouga that was humanoid.  His goofy sidekicks and a good deal of the tribe were as well.  You could have it so the parents in the pack were cursed to keep them on four legs, or maybe they were cursed for attacking a child(ren) and their children were cursed to walk on two legs.  Just a thought.

It wouldn't be the first time that something affected a generation or two of a race, but I kinda like what I said before of how it was an ability that they gained over time. 

As for the tail, I said that it was like Sess' 'tail'. It was some kind of marker that showed that he was the first born. :) I know it was kinda weak, but I want to keep it. I can see how it could be looked at as a defect of being able to look completely human like Sess. But considering that they are a wolf tribe that is becoming more and more human looking, Kouga's tail could be something that the next in line for leadership gets. It's purely a family thing so that they would never forget where they came from.

I did bring up his friends in what I posted before.... I wonder how much of it you read? :)
