character parallels

As some of you know, there is a story idea I have that I have been cultivating since I was twelve. I've realized, on and off, that two of my characters remind me - strongly - of Inu-Yasha characters.

This is entirely coincidental, of course, because while I was developing them, the one time I'd seen anything even remotely related to Inu-Yasha was three years before, where I glanced at it in a magazine, and proclaimed it boring, and moved onto the Sailor Moon things. I didn't even know it was called Inu-Yasha at that point. Japanese + Me ='d Icky, thank you.

But as it is, Keahi and Aisu seem to be channeling Kagome and Kikyou.

Keahi is my favourite out of the two. Aisu, while I have nothing against her, is not a character who goes out of her way to make you like her. Aisu deeply resents Keahi for grabbing the role of leader, when Aisu is the one who has trained all of her life to do the job that Keahi stole. Aisu is more experienced, she's older, and she's damned pissed that Keahi has set her sites on Keith, who Aisu has already decided belongs to her. (Keith, incidentally, is also highly like Inu-Yasha, but I don't even want to get into that.)

Aisu is paler, taller, more powerful, more worthy, (all of this is her opinion, of course, but She Can't Be Wrong) and...I don't really like her.

Now, I'm not sure which thing I'm posting about...whether my hatred of Kikyou stems from my dislike of Aisu, whether my opinion on Aisu has been influenced by Kikyou, and why the fuck did I write Inu-Yasha characters into my plot even before seeing it? I mean, really, if I were to go over all of the similarities, it's actually kind of scary.
