A mythical Japanese creature, with the ability to shapeshift - Usually takes on the shape of a fox, though.
They take on the shape of a human being to seduce others, and not unlike a vampire, they slowly feed on people's life force, able to do so in multiple short sessions.
A Kitsune can have up to nine tails, and the more tails it has, the older and wiser it is.
At the point where it has nine tails, its fur will also turn golden.
A rather well-known kitsune is Tails
, the best friend of Sonic
Because of his age, he doesn't have the shapeshifting lifedraining capabilities others of his race have.
In fact, since he has only two tails, Tails is considered a very basic and young kitsune.
Possibly because of his age (8).
