Seishin Kitsune are a merging of a fox-spirit with a human, usually done by a minor deity or powerful mage for some hidden reason. As such they are mostly human, the fox mentality suppressed until they've grown in power. The only powers granted them is the ability to change between human and fox, and some random magic.
Being mostly human Seishin Kitsune can be - and usually are - just like other humans, though often a bit paranoid about keeping their "affliction" secret.

Normally just like a human. In hybrid form height and weight can be a little higher, in fox form length is 2-3' and weight about 20 lbs.
Playing a Seishin Kitsune
Completely campaign-dependent. Since Seishin Kitsune are created for some reason how to play them is completely dependent on how, why and where the character in question exists.

Seishin Kitsune Adventurers
Three sample Seishin Kitsune adventurers are described below.
Rufina of Dolszet (really Felicia of Eltiua) is a young noblewoman, a fugetive from a feud that killed her family. She lives under an assumed name with some distant relatives, working on getting the resources to she needs to get back at the people that killed her family. She hides her foxy side from all but her closest friends.
Rufina was "gifted" by the god of her nation as a backup weapon for a coming "war of the gods". The god has primed her to act as a dimensional portal that will throw his enemies out of the world when triggered.
