Kiheita Inugami is the late husband of Saki Inugami, and father of Kurando.
He is first mentioned in Shadow Hearts: Covenant, although he goes nameless, and is deceased at some unspecified point before the events of the game.
His name was revealed in an interview by Geek Gamer website, with series creators Matsuzo Machida and Miyako Kato.
Shadow Hearts: CovenantEdit
He was descended from a long lineage of guardians of Japan; different families with their own unique powers. He was of the Inugami - the Dog Guardians who protect the eight million gods of Japan.
Saki sees a vision of him in a dream, telling her to aid Kurando, open his seal and awaken the Spirit of the Ogre, and become the head of Inugami Clan.
Shadow Hearts IIIEdit
Although it was never developed, a prequel game to Shadow Hearts was planned, with a young Kiheita to feature as one of the protagonists alongside Jinpachiro, his future brother-in-law.
The events of the plot, and his role in it are unknown, but based on other artworks by Miyako Kato, one of the series artists, he would have had access to his own Jutendouji-like Demon Morph.
