Akihiro sought to take revenge on Inutaisho for mutilating him, but the dragon, Ryuukotsusei beat him to it. He learned of the shikon jewel 200 years after Inutaisho's death..but by then it had been shattered and dispersed thoroughout Japan. Now named "Mister Lee", Akihiro has given up his quest for the jewel and has become a frightening ringleader of a military weapons smuggling ring in Tokyo. But what will happen when he discovers Kagome Higurashi, who has the very jewel fragments he spent half a thousand years searching for? We will see....

Kazumasa (original) - kazumasa

"I feel like I've been wandering for years...
Do you know what it feels like to be without someone? To be so utterly alone? Of course not. Only I feel that way. I don't age like normal people, I never have. Mother died 250 years ago. Thats right, I said 250 years. No, I'm not crazy..at least i don't think so. I dont know why I still look the way I do after all this time. I still look 25 but...I know that I'm much older than that. What the hell am I? Who the hell am I! I never knew my father...never knew anyone but mother. She was torn from me. I had to watch her age and die while I stayed the same. You could never imagine how hard it was to witness the life drain from her, to watch her raven hair turn white, her radiant smile wither. Theres nothing left for me but to wander. I will find my father. I will find who and what I am...even if it kills me."

Kiri (original) - not_a_traitor

"Whoever has the fortune of coming across this journal, consider it my last will and testament. I know he will find me very soon and finish what he started. That bastard. My work was indispensable to him and his vulnerablitiy to sunlight. Well I hope he fries and you can quote me on that. I hope Mister Lee fries the next time he walks out in the light of day without my aid...and I hope he continues to fry in the darkest level of hell."
