Inugami names himself after a dog spirit of Japan that legends say was created from extreme suffering, trained to exact revenge upon the enemies of its master. His mother was Turkish while father Japanese. As a child, Inugami was forced to witness the slaughter of his entire family at the hands of the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood came to Inugami's home forcing him to tell him the location of Kusanagi; however, Inugami did not know. So, the Brotherhood buried him to the neck and killed his mother, father and brother (who was two years old)
