This cube craft paper toy is Kirara, the Sango's faithful nekomata companion and main method of transportation, based on the manga / anime / video game series Inuyasha, this paper craft was created by alonso jacobo. Kirara was originally the companion of Midoriko, the miko who created the Shikon no Tama, suggesting that she's far older than she seems. Sometime later, she became Shako's family companion and has been passed down through the line. She was inherited from Shako to Sango's father, who then gave Sango Kirara when Sango was still very young.
Kirara usually appears to be a small kitten-sized feline with red eyes, a marking on her forehead and two tails. However, she has two forms: one of a small kitten, and one of a large cat resembling a saber-toothed cat. In her full-sized demon form, flames emerge from her feet and tails and her abilities increase tenfold allowing her to battle even the strongest of demon opponents.
Since Kirara is a cat demon, she acts similar to regular cats: eating cat food, treats, fish, and playing with cat toys. She also has cat-like weaknesses too. Kirara is shown to be very intelligent as well as sentient. She's fiercely loyal to Sango but with time she shows loyalty to all members of the group.
Kirara demonstrates exceptional patience, often honoring the requests of the group and their various friends. For example, it is revealed that she allowed Inuyasha to practice the potentially lethal Wind Scar attack on her leaving bald spots on her fur. In addition, she also helped Miroku impress village women and ward off the undesired advances of the older village women. Kagome admits to playing dress up with her, and using her to return to the modern age without the knowledge of the rest of the group.
