Each land respectivly was it's own nation, allowing its high rulers to do with what they deemed necesary, all within their boards bowed to them. It was no different than in the Western Lands, though the great Inu No Taisho was a general of war, and a great tactition the one to fear was his mate....Izanami. She dared not let anyone look upon her 'house' with distaste, and several times made another regret such an action. It was no different towards her own son, it wasn't unusual for the sudden sound of her hand connecting with his cheek sending him to the ground.
Her cold golden eyes, showing no love, no remorse for her actions "Again, Sesshoumaru." she stated coldly as she stood there. "How many times must we go through this exercise till you get it right?" her voice cold as she glared down upon her child who she was training to be an even greater ruler. "If you wish to one day hold the attention of other demons....to be regarded as a true Taisho....then you will do this correctly!" she said coldly. They were in the middle of training, practicing his ability to fight his clothing torn and dirt smeared on it. His hands cut up from the sword she had made him practice with, rather than starting out with a wooden one she made him learn the true worth of a sword. "ou can't even use the poison in your claws correctly....your a worthless son....you are to stay out here, till you can draw that sword without so much as a sound....in perfect form....and cutting your enemy down without them realizing it....."
she had done this to her son since he was old enough to be on 'his own' as she stated, he could walk, talk, and care for himself so he was ready to start the harsh training. To learn to be a lord of the west, to be a true youkai...She turned from her son, clearly distaste in her voice as she moved from him and returned back into the palace leaving him out in the training grounds. That was Izanami, a ruthless women even to her own child...her mate understood it to well that little to no 'love' was within her heart....she mated Inu no Taisho for political reasons not for love and it showed well.
