Name: Keirin 'Kit' Chen
Age: Around 580 years old
Race: Anthro Chinese Kitsune
Height: 182cm (approx. 5'11")
Weight: 55kg (approx. 121 lbs)
Fur: Typical Fox Orange (very pr0nish), with a lighter orange (Not so much pr0n) for his muzzle, and running down his neck to.. you know where. He has a head full of black stringy hair that comes down in a straight fringe, but is longer at the back. His paws are black; as are the tips of his tails. All of them.
Eye Color: As black as a REALLY BLACK THING! (Note that his eyes have no solid pupils. They appear cloudy and diluted.)
Distinguishing marks: The 5 tails. You know. They kinda stick out.
Clothing: He wears one of those Chinese hat thingies. With the tassel at the end.. and the little.. round bits.... yeah. And a red vest and purple dress thingie over a black suit. With Gold Trim. Which is confusing, yes. He's got really long sleeves, though, which like.. has stuff inside.. and all that.
Ok, not very clear, no?
This picture should clear up issues on fur, clothing, and number of tails. (5, despite what's on the card, which was due to me not specifying when I was carded. See, folks? DETAILS! THEY'RE IMPORTANT!)
(Click to enlarge)
- The Headgear Location
Right. Now with pictoral guidance perhaps I could explain better. That thing on his head is a HAT. It's round, stiff, and it has a black brim that sticks way out. Sorta like a tough version of those poofy white sailor's hats that you see. The middle has a red 'bowl' which makes up the main part of the hat that all hats cannot live without, and on the top is a golden knob, which may or may not be accompanied by a fuzzy tassel on a string. (Refer to card) This depends on his mood, and if it's raining or not. There is also a leaf plastered to his hat, which generally changes locations and positions randomly. The important thing is that it's there.
- The Upper Body Location
Hokay. Now, upon his chest he wears two articles of clothing. Firstly, akin to plain Chinese Kung Fu shirts, he wears a completely black one with, note, extra large sleeves. It is a collarless piece of fabric held only by a scant few buttons and nothing else. OVER this, he wears his vest/dress suit thing, which is that large red and purple thing that you see with the golden rims. It is held tight by fabric 'loops', and is nice and flowy. Note that the red and purple parts are ONE PIECE, and in the official card you can see him wear a variant of this. The vest has no sleeves, allowing the undergarment's sleeves to protrude and wave all over. The designs on the vest are NOT standard, but he likes wearing strange Chinese-y decors and stuff. Sometimes he wears a black sash as a belt. (Not pictured)
- The Naughty Bits downward Location
This will be simple. He wears loose, baggy, silk black pants, and wears cloth shoes for some reason. Usually these shoes are simply black, but in this picture he was feeling fiesty.
ACCESSORIES AND GADGETS
A Kitsune by right can produce a good number of strange accessories and/or curiousities due to their powers (See Powers, further down) or, as in Kit's case, an extra dimension within his clothing. (See Powers, I said! See it!) (Later! Not now! Now you're reading about accessories!)
In any case, there are probably too many things which he uses once and then throws away; depending on the situation and/or humour value. Such things I will not count as an accessory. Rather, I will describe the things which he uses most commonly.
As in his card, he uses a strange amount of eating and food-related utensils. You don't have to know why. What he likes the most is the fork, the most versatile of eating implements, capable of stabbing, throwing, catapulting, digging, torturing and many other pain-giving functions. See if you can try that with a spoon, Kemo. He pulls these things out from his sleeve, and assaults people with them. They are highly durable, moreso than normal utensils, and he is not afraid to abuse this fact.
He also uses leaves; normal leafy-leaves to aid him on his mystical quest. (Whatever that is.) These leaves perform a variety of effects, and can take various shape. The leaves can be sharp enough to suitibly shred through all sorts of material save the hardest metals, (yes, JUST LIKE POKEMON! *squeal*) and can gather together to form platforms or beds. Or they can just fly around and be merry. The most common use are as a form of shuriken for Kit, able to fly with deadly accuracy toward the target; either piercing them or knocking something away as required.
MAGICAL POWERS OF IMMENSE SHINY-NESS
Ahem. He is a Forest Kitsune. For those whom do not know. Kitsune are spirit beings from Asia (NOT ONLY JAPAN! >_<) with multiple tails and a penchant for mischief and rowdiness. They are deeply embedded in culture and folklore, and throughout all the native stories that I have read and heard from really old blokes all over Asia, unfortuantely none of them speak much about any that run around in a dress, so permit me to make some of this up, although based generally on what Kitsune lore I know.
Through the magical powers of illusion, Kitsune are able to (up to a certain limit) create things with illusionary powers. Of Illusion. Although not real, they seem very real, and are generally indistinguishable from real things unless the person is trained in the art of.. distinguishing them. Because the dream is so large and varied, it's hard to say exactly whom. But as a general rule of thumb, most holy-based persons and other Kitsune with a high enough experience level will be able to tell. The Kitsune may also use this power to disguise itself as other forms. The more Kitsune are around in the vicinity, the large and more elaborate these illusions can grow. The illusion can be maintained so long as the Kitsune requires; but large enough disruptions may cause the Kitsune to lose focus and break the illusion. (E.G. Setting him on fire, death, etc..)
Kitsune are spirit-based creatures. They can take on solid form; or at least what other people assume to be solid form. More commonly, they are etheral beings with no physicality in true form. What people see and feel are various manifestations of this etheral form. Thusly, they can shift themselves between either form at will, although, Kit personally isn't too good at this. Which is why he keeps getting hurt. This allows him to move around in mysterious ways, such as appearing out of nowhere, or from behind you, or the ability to sink through solid objects. This skill does NOT allow him to move things around, (trans-teleportation) although if he is in contact with something, he can extend this skill to whatever he is in contact with. (E.G. If he is holding a cup, and he runs through a wall, the cup will follow unless he decides not to let it.)
He can perform curses and things like that.. Hypnotism.. posession.. and others, which require items of posession, such as the victim's personal effects or, more commonly and most powerful, blood. Also, blood makes a REALLY good drink.
Watch out for his curse talismans! Rectangular pieces of paper with a seal written on them! Good for any purpose! 5 for only $.98! *ahem* Anyway. Such items are used by him to curse people, and I don't mean shouting innappropriate language at them. Such powers allow him to affect his target with a 'status disability', such as, bad luck, hair loss, and attraction to bunnies, as a few examples. He does not do this often, however, as it is too elaborate to set up and perform under immediate-action circumstances.
- Keeping.. things.. yeah.
Ok, the titles start getting really bad from here on. His sleeves apparently seem to be limitless in depth; everything can be placed in there and will apparently disappear until he reaches in and takes it out again. A while ago, some people had the unfortunate chance to fall in accidentally, and... woo... what a trip. Don't ask. It doesn't even matter if the item doesn't fit. The fabric of reality will seemingly twist such that it will go in. The reason behind this is that there is a tear in reality within his sleeves; a so called gate to another dimension. Not a whole one, though, just a small mini one. Kinda like a large items locker. The reality inside this dimension is controlled by the mind and will of the creator.
- Plant stuff
He can control plants; and take over nature itself. Growing plants.. killing them.. and sometimes just uprooting trees just for fun. But.. probably not. He loves trees. He does. Really. He can grow other things too, like flowers, bushes, vines, cactuses, bush ornaments in the shape of animals, and a variety of non-edible tubers. He can also exert his power to the growth of plants, speeding them up as necessary, and also allowing them to move in unnatural ways. However, when that tree bends down to hit you, he always claims it's the tree's fault, not his.
BEHAVIOUR AND CAPABILITIES
Some people say he's a bit crazy. Most people will say he's very crazy. Just ask anyone who knows him well. But in any case, he's crazy.
The way he thinks is special. And by special, I mean, wrong. He has no values whatsoever, merely doing things if he believes it will benefit him later or at current standing. At any time, he might opt to suddenly just ditch whatever he is doing in light of more interesting actions he could be doing, such as sleeping, or looking at things.
However, as par Kitsune, if he makes and agreement, he will find it very hard to break it unless out of the most extreme circumstances. If he makes a promise, he would never EVER break it, and only under uncontrollable circumstances would he be forced to. And in such cases, he would atone for this breakage at earliest possible convinience.
- On the subject of Morals
His morals are non-existant. He is a purely neutral subject, and will side with whomeever he feels he should affected by what interests him at the time. He will not be swayed by anything else except the ramifications of his actions; (If it hurts him or anyone he knows, or anything he likes, he will fight against it. Others can die for all he cares.) and anything, repeat, anything that might interest him AT THE TIME OF OFFERING. For example, he might be craving some fishcake. And if you offered fishcake to him in return for burning down a retirement home full of old, weak fogeys, he would do it for the fishcake. If he wanted fishcake, and you offered him a cheese bun for the same work, he would more likely beat you and steal your wallet.
- On the subject of personal interests
His interests may change more frequently than a rich woman's shoe collection, but he has a few base interests that keep him occupied. He is always on the lookout for interesting trinkets which perform various, amusing functions which he could perhaps sell for a profit, and he also likes cheese a lot. He can be very distracted by money, especially if they come in small, shiny bits which reflect light that twinkle everywhere. He likes 'em shiny. Literally. But he's not picky. If you have a full wallet he'll snatch it up right there and then if he can.
- On the subject of daily routine
He usually picks on stupid people for amusement. Young, defenseless people whom know nothing, or even some powerful people whom he goads into attacking, then laughs as the swords slice away with little effect. This is basically how he spends most of his time. Even if it doesn't seem like he is, he probably is anyway.
- On the subject of instincts
He is instinctive, and streetsmart. He has learnt the ways of being along all of his life, and he has picked up keen instincts along the way. He can smell, feel and hear things better than normal, and being a Kitsune helps that on as well. He is fast to react to threat, although he likes to attack first and ask questions only if they are still alive at the end. But they'd be silly questions too. His reflexes are quick and sharp, and he will not hestitate to dive headfirst into what could be a fatal encounter.
- On the subject of his speech and outwardly actions
He conducts himself in the most annoying way possible, as it amuses him to see people frustrated with him. He will try to find one's weakness and pick on it a lot, using sneering and even childish antics in order to eat away at everyone. Of course, this doesn't make him a very pleasant person to be around, although this annoyance that he causes can be very useful in breaking people's wills and distracting them. He is a very smooth talker though, and when he's not trying to annoy people, he's trying to scam them out of their money. He has a perfectly honest voice, and a very honest and naive look about him when he's not being mean. He can talk his way in and out of most situations, and he can really charm people if he needs to. However, he simply would rather be annoying, since most people already knows he's lying when he's sweettalking. (Through notoriety; not because he's bad at it!)
- On the subject of friendship
He doesn't have many friends. Firstly, he doesn't trust a lot of people, and secondly, even less people trust HIM. However, the few friends whom have earned his trust and respect are treated beyond family; and he will protect them with his very life. It's not easy though, so go get your slaving guardian somewhere else.

WEAKNESSESS IN THE SYSTEM
Kitsune are said to be immortal, but there are ways to defeat, if not, temporarily incapacitate them.
THE KITSUNE MANUAL OF DEATH AND DEBILITATION
- In order to destroy a Kitsune, please use one(1) Shinto Priest or Buddhist Monk, in the fashion described on the back of the package. (WARNING! Once done, this process is IRREVERSABLE, and the Kitsune will not be recovered! PLEASE BE SURE BEFORE SETTING A PRIEST OR MONK AGAINST YOUR KITSUNE.)
- In order to gain control of a Kitsune, please steal their Kitsune Ball. Their Kitsune ball is a small ball (Wow! Really?) that they hold and play with. Being in contact with this ball allows you to control the Kitsune through verbal conduct. Watch what you say though. The Kitsune will probably do everything in its power to twist your words to go around what you instruct him; and try to get the ball back.
- In order to temporarily slow or stop a Kitsune, please use enough damage from the packet in order to fill required effect. If effect is not enough, please dispense more damage and use as necessary.
- In order to temporarily slow or stop a Kitsune (alt. method), please use items of high faith against them. Usage and effect is similar as above.
SPECIAL BONUS SECTION! PERSONAL STUFF WITHIN!
- It is easy to distract Kit using fire; as he has a forest affinity, and is both afraid and easily injured by fire.
- Kit is also very easy to anger, if you know the right spots to touch him at. (Verbally, you pervert.) Otherwise he'll keep his cool.
- He is easily lured by shiny objects, especially if they're more out of the norm than more common shiny objects like coins and buffed chains and stuff.
Hahaha! You actually think I bothered to come up with one? You fool! YOU STUPID FOOL! Go away, stupid fool!
Ok. He doesn't have much of a history, because he has kept most of his private life.... private. Even to me. But as far as I know, he used to live in an unidentified province in China, in a very secluded clan of Kitsune whom did not make the great travel to Japan. He left his clan at a very early age, due to restlessness, and made his way around China at first, disguising himself as a travelling Dim Sum seller. On his travels he managed to find himself in the dream, where he has given up that farce and has decided to prey upon the rich offerings that the dream has to give him. He has never mentioned his parents, nor the location of his clan. Most of his past life has been shrouded in secrecy.
And that was all anyone could ever get out of him.
