"Aaaand done!"

Tony sat back on his chair, smirking at his job well done of hacking into S.H.I.E.L.D's computers and its database, "That was even easier than last time. S.H.I.E.L.D really needs to update their security."

"Not every computer techie at S.H.I.E.L.D is as smart as you there, Stark," Clint leaned against the back of Tony's chair, barely phased that his teammates was technically breaking into his employer's ultra secured network, "See if you can find anything about this Kouga in there."

"He might be a demon too if he's associated with Taisho," Tony murmured, quickly going through files and discarding them even quicker when they contained no information about demons or Kouga, "Nothing. S.H.I.E.L.D's got nothing."

"It shouldn't be too surprising," Clint shrugged, "S.H.I.E.L.D doesn't know everything," He looked thoughtful, "How would we even tell what a demon is? That Taisho appeared pretty damn human to me."

"Make up? Maybe some kind of spell?" Tony guessed, looking rather irritated that he didn't find anything useful, "So, what did you want to know, Cap?"

"Do you remember when Taisho said that Kagome somehow 'relates' to me?" Steve asked and Tony nodded, "I want to know what he meant by that."

Tony quickly brought up Steve's profile and read through the contents, "Nothing is here that you wouldn't know about, so it's not like Kagome is your illegitimate grandkid or anything," He said and Steve frowned, "You know, 'relate' doesn't specifically have to mean related to you directly. It could just mean you're connected in some way."

Steve stayed silent, thinking over Tony's words in his mind. So Kagome was not directly related to him, but was connected to him in some other way?

He thought back to his past, even though the memories were painful, 'Bucky...' He shook his head, trying to focus on more then his best friend's death and his thoughts turned to the Howling Commandos, 'Dugan, Falsworth, Jones, Dernier, and Morita,' His eyes widened, 'Morita!'

"Figured something out, Cap?" Tony asked, seeing Steve's change in expression.

"Search up Jim Morita," Steve demanded and Tony did exactly that, "He was... one of my teammates back in the war."

"Okay, and here's his profile, Jim Morita – deceased," Tony hummed, skimming through the information and his eyes widened when one piece of info caught his eye, "Morita was stationed in Japan after WWII was over and remained there throughout the rest of his life. He eventually married and had a daughter named Nodoka...!"

Steve jumped when Tony turned to him, "Nodoka is the name of Kagome's mother," He stated and Steve finally put the pieces together, "So Kagome is the grandkid of one of your old war buddies?!"

"It would seem so," Steve answered after a moment of silence, turning his wide blue eyes to Kagome, who was currently 'assisting' Bruce in his research of Kirara, "Morita's granddaughter?"

"Small world," Tony muttered, scratching at his head and he wondered at the fact that he was the father of one of Steve's old comrades' grandchild, "Does that make us step-cousins, once removed?" He joked.

Steve didn't bother to answer Tony and he frowned, his face tightening once he glanced over to Kagome once more. If she was Morita's granddaughter, then he would honour his former teammate.

He would protect Kagome with his very life.
