[There was a time when Sesshoumaru claimed that Tenseiga meant nothing to him. He carried it not for its worth, but for duty's sake alone, a son fulfilling his father's last decree despite the insult he felt such an inheritance represented. For a long time, now, his views on the matter have changed. Tenseiga is not only an heirloom, not only a literal piece of the great demon whom Sesshoumaru hoped one day to surpass, who held his son's admiration and obedience despite everything Sesshoumaru said and did that seemed to indicate otherwise. It is now representative of the path Sesshoumaru walked to find his own strength and place in the world as a great demon in own right. Without Tenseiga, Sesshoumaru would never have learned the lessons necessary for the birth of Bakusaiga, the sword created from his own power and not his fathers. Without Tenseiga, Rin would never have come into Sesshoumaru's life. Without Tenseiga, Sesshoumaru would never have learned the final lesson his father had tried so hard to teach him: that one finds one's true strength when one has something to protect.
Sesshoumaru wants Tenseiga back, and he is willing to go to great lengths to have it.]
I would speak with those who have knowledge of the Defense Force.
[His tone is as demanding as ever, his expression as cold, and he speaks not as someone potentially petitiioning to join the force, but with the assurance and expectation of obedience belonging to a general. He is a lord, even without his lands, and if he should join the Defense Force, he expects to do so under his terms. There is little room for compromise in his mind.]
