  • the seven members of the Shichinintai were mercenaries before the series starts. They could accomplish the same task as an entire army, though they are mere humans. However, they were brutal in their work, and obviously killed for the joy of it, not for the job. People feared them because of their power and joy of killing combined, and thus some feudal lords sent armies after them. the seven took down many many soldiers with them, but eventually they were overcome by numbers. They were buried some place north. However, the locals were scared the restless spirits of the shichinintai would arise to kill them. Thus, they erected a monument to appease their souls. Now, later in the series, Inuyasha breaks Naraku's barrier with the Red Tetsusaiga, and he gets scared and runs off into Mt. Harukei, or something. The holy aura of the mountain masked his evil presense, but did not purify him, because he corrupted the maker of the holy aura. Then, to make sure nobody would find him while he made himself super strong, he revived the seven shichinintai with seven jewel shards to keep Inuyasha and company busy. Eventually, Inuyasha and company, and Kikyo, and Sesshomaru slew all of them, but it still gave Naraku the time he needed.
