Tenja bears a almost complete resemblance to his father with nearly no resemblance to Kagome, however he is more toned and masculine than his father and at first wore his hair like his father, but now wears his hair much shorter and spikes it.Unlike Inuyasha, Tenja is known to dress in modern clothes,some of his wardrobe includes sleeve-less, long and short-sleeved shirts, jeans,leather jacket and pants,necklaces,dog tags,bandanas(wore around his neck),sunglasses, belt and wrist chains, several style sleeve-less vests, and several types of shoes
In his early years he was just like his father. Hot-headed, brash, prideful,ect, and also a bit of a prankster. In his recent years he ocassionally shows he's retained his hot-headed and brash nature, but has matured greatly and shares some of his paternal uncle traits(level-headed,confident,dignity,proud of his heritage,ect) and cares about his family and team greatly.

Compared to the orignal relationship between his father and uncle,Tenja had a much more healthy relationship with Sesshomaru based on mutual respect and care.Sesshomaru first show care for Tenja when he first saw him as an infant and when older showed Tenja his families history. WHen Tenja fell ill Sesshomaru, showed genuine concern for his nephew and was the one who cured him by making him a hanyo.Even though Tenja was grateful for his help Sesshomaru felt guilty for how he altered Tenja the way he did.To make up for this he trained Tenja and through this they became closer with Sesshomaru think of Tenja as a surrogative son. As Tenja grew stronger Sesshomaru became prouder of him.There are hints that Sesshomaru may chose him as his successor as The Lord of the Western Lands

Like his father Tenja deeply hates Naraku, but for different reasons.Tenja dispises the demon for his many crimes and for what he put his family and friends through.Naraku hates Tenja for the purpose of revenge against Inuyasha.
