A cat youkai and Sango's helper. Kirara is normally about the size of a smallish house cat, but can transform into a formidable flying beast wreathed in flames and large enough to carry several people.
The anime depicts Kirara or a relative fighting alongside Midoriko at one point.
Kirara's name literally means 'mica'.
Travelling with Sango, Inuyasha, Kagome, Miroku, and Shippou. As Sango's helper, the two are very close, but Kirara also seems to be rather attached to Kagome and Shippou, and, of course, Kohaku.
Special powers, etc.
