Akira Sohma was the former head of the Sohma family. He was father to Akito Sohma and husband to Ren Sohma. Akira was the one who told Akito that she was the chosen child, a child born to be loved.



Akira was described as a beautifully kind person. However, he was also very melancholy, because those around him did not understand his loneliness and only treated him as head of the Sohma family. Ren was the first person to recognize his loneliness and fear of dying alone, and as such, she fell in love with him.


Akito and Akira

Akira and Akito.

Akira was a lonely man, very quiet and kind. As said above, he was barely able to interact with people due to his terrible health. However, the maid Ren managed to reach for him and become his companion, and within few they married.

When Akito was conceived, Ren threatened to abort her if Akira did not consent to raising her as a boy. Akira, afraid that Ren would keep her promise, agreed.

Akira loved Akito as much as possible while Ren rarely looked at her. Akira once asked Ren why she refused to hold Akito, and Ren replied that she was more important than Akito.[1]

When Akira died of his illness, only Akito was present. He made an effort to comfort the little girl and tell her that she was special and beloved, however his very last words were a sad acknowledgment of how he and Ren could never truly reconcile.

Ren came as soon as she could, but by that time Akira had passed away. Ren shouted that she should have been there, rather than this worthless child (Akito). Both Ren's claims of the bond being fake and Akira's death may have caused Akito to become as twisted, controlling and dependent as she is.
