Kuroro (クロロ, "Circle") was a twin-tailed cat demon who lived in a human village and play a lot with children there.


Kuroro was kicked out of the village when a faith healer named Tesso arrived. He told the villagers that the twin tail "invites calamity." Tesso was actually a rat yōkai that wanted Kuroro gone so nothing could stand in his ways when his army of rats would devour everything in the village.

A village child named Koume was looking for Kuroro after she left. She was concerned for Kuroro's safety because she knew that she would be giving birth soon. She was met by Shippō and offered to help her look for Kuroro. The two of them encountered Tesso's rats at night and were being pursued by them. Shippō carried Koume away as fast as he could, but the rats caught up with them. Kuroro suddenly stepped in to save them. She was able to hold back the rats single-handedly with her speed and strength.

Kuroro led Koume and Shippō to a small cave that she lived in after she was kicked out of the village. They saw Kuroro's three newborn kittens. Koume expressed relief that they were save. She placed a bell around Kuroro and offered to go back to the village with them. Tesso suddenly appeared just outsside the cave after following Koume's scent. Kuroro could sense his yōki and immediately rushed outside to confront him. She hisses at him when he arrived. Tesso was surprised to run into her. He swiped her away with his tail and caused her to hit the cave wall. She was able to get back on her feet. Tesso swiped his tail at her again, but she bit down on it and latched on. She used the momentum from Tesso swinging his tail upward to get her off and scratched him in the face. Tesso then unleashed a blast of energy from his mouth. Kuroro was able to dodge his attack, but it caused Koume, Shippō, and her kittens to be trapped inside the cave.

Kuroro found her way towards Inuyasha and the others after they heard the villagers proclaim that she had returned. She led Inuyasha's group to where Shippō and the others were. Shippō was about to confront Tesso when Kuroro and the others arrived. He soon realized that Tessō's body was fake since he didn't have the wound that Kuroro inflicted on his face earlier. Teeso was soon destroyed after his real body was discovered. Kuroro then fainted due to the injuries she sustained from her fight. Koume cradled Kuroro in her arms and thanked her.

Kuroro was welcomed back to the village with her kittens. She was reunited with them after being bandaged for her wounds. They were being taken care of by Koume and she promised they they will always be together.
