Character Description: Koga

Kouga is the leader of the Wolf Clan. He has super speed due to the Shikon Jewel shards he has in his legs. Kouga fell in love with Kagome, and always quarrels with InuYasha because of this.

Kouga was originally a bad guy. His wolves (not Ginta and Hakkaku) killed Rin (before Sesshoumaru restored her). Because of his love of Kagome, who is a human, he turned into a good demon, and helps InuYasha and his group in their quest for Naraku.

He got accidentally engaged to Ayame, a wolf demon from the mountains, when he saved her as a child and promised her marriage to keep up her spirits. Ayame is now grown and is holding Kouga to his promise.

I'm told Koga's name means "steel fang" in Japanese.

Koga's Age

I was told that Koga states his age in the series, but then I was told by someone else that he does not. Perhaps this differs between the US and Japanese versions. If you know precisely where he states his age, please contact me. Rumiko Takahasi, creator of the series, stated in the Inuyasha guide, Inuyasha Okuki Kaiden, that Kouga is 15 years old in appearance and mindset.
