Physical Description[edit]

Physically, kitsune are noted for having as many as nine tails. Generally, a greater number of tails indicates an older and more powerful fox. to most people kitsune look like normal foxes, but to the more magically attuned they can see that they have unique colored markings on their body (color of markings can vary). In human form they look like any other human but they have the ears and tail(s) of a fox, they can choose to hide the ears and tail if they wish.
