Fukuyama Yuki (Fuyuko)Age:
Her true self takes the form of a light grey, verging on white arctic fox. She can hide her ears and tail in her human form but it becomes uncomfortable after some time.Personality:
Fuyuko has been unfortunately influenced by too much time spent watching American crime dramas. The result is that she is crude, sarcastic, and has a dark sense of humor. Even having her attitude skewed in such a way she takes her job seriously. Yuki is driven by a need to fulfill a promise to help people wherever she can. Even though she is old by humans standards, from a foxes point of view she is still younger than many and quite naive but very honest. Yuki can slip into a melancholic mood if a remark stirs the wrong memory.Abilities:
Yuki retains the standard set of Kitsune powers, first among those is the ability to shapeshift between human and fox forms, even taking the form of another human for a time. She can also conjure foxfire and create illusions like the one that disguises the abandoned house that she calls home.Skills:
Despite her lax attitude, Yuki is a very skilled investigator. Her kitsune nature means that she has a very high intelligence. Yuki excels at police procedures and crime solving. She caught on quickly to most human technologies like cell phones and the internet. Unfortunately driving is still beyond her grasp.Equipment:
Nothing but her skills, personality and authority.Brief Backstory:
As many tales go a person out late at night encountered a beautiful woman out late at night, fell in love and married them. The human in this case was a young police officer, Fukuyama Yuki, who fell in love with the fox spirit Fuyuko. They lived happily and soon the police officer was made a detective, enjoying a successful career and a happy marriage.
The story diverges from the tradition here, however. The kitsune stayed with her lover for years until the human grew ill and no wisdom of the fox could save her. The fox confessed her identity at the side of her lovers deathbed and made a promise to help people where she could and uphold the law.
Taking her beloved's name and appearance, the fox took over her lovers life where it was cut short. Fuyuko, under the guise of Fukuyama Yuki continued to uphold the laws of man and help out wherever she could.
