Nobody outsmarts a fox like me!

Physical Description[edit]

Vixmen are at base, anthropomorphic foxes. Their fur is mainly an ember orange color. Their arms and legs are colored tar black, and their chest area and the edges of their tails are colored snow white. Their eye color is usually a piercing blue or a forest green. Their claws are dipped in a strange oily substance that serves a ritualistic purpose (see History). Females have less toned muscles, but longer tails.


The Vixmen are a race of humanoid fox people, dwelling within the deepest parts of jungles or abandoned mansions. Known and notorious for their incredible speed and cunning, they are descendants of an ancient breed of elves only known as The Blurred. This elven race was said to have been attacked by a horde of strange foxes, infecting all of the race. Gradually, the offspring of The Blurred became more and more foxlike until they eventually became the Vixmen. They have obtained unprecedented understanding of stealth and mischief from their elven roots, and use it to their advantage when fighting slow foes.

All Vixmen worship an entity known as The Light-Giver, the God of the Stars. The Light-Giver is considered sacred by the general population, who they believe created the Vixmen from her tears. Before combat, Vixmen dip their claws in a tarry substance known as Light Gel, which would supposedly give Vixmen the good luck of the Light-Giver, as well as her strength.


Most Vixmen live in groups of 4 to 7, in isolated forests or in abandoned mansions or homes. Males usually are the hunters and the killers for the rest of the pack, and women act as defenders of their territory.

Vixmen Names[edit]

All names start with the letter L, in sympathy to the Light-Giver. Male names feature prominent R's and A's, while females use one-syllable names.

Male: Lamia, Larukon, Lackar

Female: Lae, Laur, Lerr
