Pronunciation Edit


Description (Defined) Edit

Japanese fox-spirit. Their strength is measured by the number of their tails. Unlike other skinshifting Fae, the Kitsune are more like the Roane, able to shift between animal and humanoid form with ease. Luna however was able to replicate the Selkie's method at the cost of Hoshibara's life, though she was unable to remove the skin she wore until Raysel poisoned it out of her.

The Kitsune have been remarked to have an affinity for alchemy, as evidenced with Yui's stash of natural ingredients.
