Youko Kurama is a five-tailed fox demon who was a fugitive from
Makai. He was a thief back then, a good one. One day, he was
being hunted and he got injured; his situation was
very hostile. Fortunately, he found a way to survive. He turned
into a spirit and managed to escape from the hunters. His spirit
flew to Ningenkai and managed to possess the body of an unborn
child in a woman's womb. When the child was born, he was given
the name Shuichi Minamino and was loved and cherished by his
mother, Shiori. Shiori's husband died shortly after Shuichi was born.

for mostly 10 years. But 15 years had passed and still, he's
still with Shiori. He can't bear to leave his human mother after
all she had done for him. Shuichi stayed and took care of her
especially in times when she needs him.
