User with this ability either is or can transform into an kitsune, a fox-spirit, who usually gain their powers by living long and keep growing stronger as they age: the more tails a kitsune has (they may have as many as nine) the older, wiser, and more powerful it is. They are often tricksters, with motives that vary from mischief to malevolence, but some act as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and even wives.

Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. Their powers include illusions, shapeshifting (particularly to human form), possession and especially ability to use fox-fire.



As kitsune grow older they gain more tails, as well as intelligence and magical power, nine-tailed kitsune gain:



  • May keep some trait that reveals their true form when shapeshifting, tail, shadow/reflection and facial features being the most common.
  • Carelessness and/or drunkenness may reveal true form.
  • Kitsune have a fear or a hatred of dogs.
  • Dogs can detect kitsune.
  • Until they gain their ninth tail, kitsune are essentially physical foxes.
