Once stripped of her powers by the cursed sword Nageki, Kagenashi has since taken the sword for herself and used it to steadily regain her earlier proud position. The nogitsune is a skilled assassin, adept with twin blades, kusarigama, and the blood-drinking sword Nageki, and the usage of fox fire, her own malevolence, and other formidable natural abilities make her dangerous in direct combat as well. While frequently calm, collected, and patient, she is by no means peaceful; if anything, her unflinching serenity will only make her eventual conquest of her island home of Azuma more certain. Assuming Nageki's bloodlust doesn't drive her to madness first, at least.
NOGITSUNE: Nogitsune are the malevolent counterparts of normal kitsune, and as such they have similar powers. Kagenashi can shapeshift between the forms of a black fox with multiple tails, a human woman, and various combinations thereof, as well as the ability to create and manipulate a sort of ectoplasma known as fox fire that can manifest as fire or lightning. Only one can be made for each tail Kagenashi has. Additionally, with each tail beyond the first she gains as her power increases, new abilities are granted to her as with all kitsune or nogitsune.
EVIL: Kagenashi's malevolent will is so strong that she has learned to adjust the standard kitsune's ability to ward off evil to instead harness and manipulate her own evil into magical assaults. While incapable of damaging anything physical, she can use this to strike at the spirit of her targets, weakening them spiritually without causing visible damage.
SECOND TAIL: Grants Kagenashi the ability to levitate without outside assistance, increasing her maneuverability.
THIRD TAIL: Allows Kagenashi to go into a purely spiritual form for brief periods, rendering her nearly invisible to normal vision. As a consequence, she cannot directly attack anyone except with fox fire or her malevolence until she returns to a physical form. Additionally, she can enter the dreams of other beings in this state, though she still cannot actually damage them. (Consent required.)
FOURTH TAIL: Allows Kagenashi to create illusions of sight, sound, and touch that are nearly indistinguishable from reality, allowing her to look like a different person or even make a forest clearing into an estate filled with servants. An ability to see through illusions in general or the conscious awareness that these illusions are not true will break them, but otherwise they are extremely realistic.
FIFTH TAIL: Allows Kagenashi to shapeshift beyond her first three basic forms, including copying people's appearances and splitting herself into multiple versions of herself up to the number of tails she has. Dividing herself also divides her full power between each copy, making them individually weaker than the original but the same strength as a group. She can't copy any non-physical powers, but she may use her illusions to make it look like she does. (Consent required for mirroring PCs or their NPCs.)
DUAL WIELDING: Since she can't rely much on magical ability, Kagenashi has learned to be skilled with wielding two weapons simultaneously. Her usual weapons are a pair of katana, the sheaths of which are strapped to her forearms and lined with a razor-sharp blade to give her an additional weapon. One of her katanas has been replaced with a high-frequency blade for more effective cutting ability. For lighter and swifter options, she also holds twin hook swords, and a pair of chain-sickles, or kusarigama.
NAGEKI: A legendary cursed sword originally made to steal Kagenashi's powers away from her. It retains its energy-draining status and becomes temporarily more powerful and faster the more it touches blood or another source of life from a sentient being. This power boost must be constantly fed to remain active and steadily decreases over time. Its effects are much more potent when used against kitsune and nogitsune, as it can drain their power and permanently siphon it into the wielder to give her their strength.
MUNASHI: A black fox that follows Kagenashi wherever she goes. Munashi is Kagenashi's literal shadow given a more corporeal form, and as such takes less damage from physical assaults compared to magical ones and can slip through cracks and small gaps. She serves mostly as a scout for Kagenashi, as they share all senses. Otherwise, Munashi has few real powers aside from lesser extents of Kagenashi's manipulation of evil will and the ability to slip into people's bodies through their fingernails or chests and possess them. Maintaining a hold on possession is more difficult the more conscious a person is and the stronger their willpower is, in the best case making them a perfect vessel for Kagenashi and in the worst case compelling them to act like a bestial fox. (Possession and the extent of its effects are entirely based on consent.) (PL 15)
MAE: A MMS Type Nine-Tailed Fox - Renge model Shinki that Kagenashi obtained for a Battle Rondo tournament. Though only six inches tall, Mae is an agile machine with a set of nine "tails" that are actually small swords. They can be separated or rearranged to form large claws, swords, or long-range launched weapons. (PL 26)
THE FUKURO SISTERS: A pair of spirits possessing clockwork owl goddess statues, named Gin and Kin. While erratic and mentally unstable, the two are brilliant when it comes to creating complex technology (at least of the clockwork or medieval variety) and are formidable enough in combat, with talons and bladed feathers to fight on their own. Additionally, the Tsuchigumo, a clan of underground-dwelling spider people, eagerly work for the Fukuro sisters (and, by extension, for Kagenashi) as servants and miners. (PL 29 for the sisters, PL 14 for the Tsuchigumo clan)
YATAGARASU: A gigantic, three-legged crow embodying the raw power of the sun. Yatagarasu holds a small sun in his body in place of his heart, and he can channel its power into various outputs ranging from creating temporary miniature suns to directing a miniature solar flare's force into a concentrated beam or a wide explosion. This power allows Yatagarasu to endure flames and magma without trouble, and even standard attacks against most of his body can be less effective than they should. Striking his sun heart, however, is much more damaging and even potentially lethal. (PL 33)
OMUKADE: A massive centipede and a symbol of absolute evil. Omukade's focus is poison, and it fills his body to be siphoned through almost every point: his pincers, his claws, even his blood is toxic. A mouth on the back of his head spews a constant stream of poisonous gas like a smokestack, capable of corrupting the air around him to choke animals and wither plants. Swarms of smaller centipedes can also be produced from this mouth, and while they are not quite as dangerous, they can still be formidable with their speed and swarming nature. Strangely, human saliva is a lethal poison to Omukade and his centipedes. (PL 32)
STAR ORB: As with all kitsune and nogitsune, most of Kagenashi's power is stored in a jewel embedded in her tongue. If it is removed, she is immediately drained of most of her power and becomes trapped in her fox form (PL 31 -> PL 15 upon removal). If it is removed, it can be replaced, but Kagenashi will do anything to get it back. It also makes her identity as a nogitsune difficult to hide at times: the star orb glows, its intensity relative to her power. Because she is weak for a nogitsune, its glow is also faint, but opening her mouth is enough to reveal her identity. To protect against this, she usually wears a mask in her human form.
GOOD OMENS: Anything designed to ward off evil spirits or malevolent forces is a strong counter to Kagenashi because of how strongly she relies on her own evil. A location with holy kitsune or their statues in particular is one that she will find it hard to enter, especially with any of those forces that are stronger than she is.
INHUMAN MORALITY: Kitsune and nogitsune are youkai by nature, and while some may associate with and protect humans, their morals often do not match up perfectly. Kagenashi is no different, and perhaps is even worse than her kin. She is not at all above trickery for amusement or vengeance, no matter if it is relatively harmless, humiliating, or potentially lethal for the target. She is quite selfish, and has no issue with gaining things for herself at the expense of others who have not earned her respect. Even when performing favors for someone, they may not be done in the most favorable way; if she promised to bring someone money, for example, Kagenashi would be likely to just steal it from neighbors and bring it to the person in question.
PRIDE AND HONOR: For all her malice and trickery, Kagenashi still has a strong sense of honor. She will faithfully repay any favor done for her, and any promise she makes can be trusted to be seen through, even to her own detriment. Similarly, her pride can get in her way. Many perceived slights are responded to with vengeance of equal measure. She is also loathe to directly ask for help, even when she knows that she needs it. This doesn't mean that she won't accept offered aid, but it has to be offered without her request first.
LAMENTATION: Nageki is a cursed sword, and its ability to grow stronger as it tastes bloodshed carries over to its wielder as a more pronounced desire for violence. When using Nageki, Kagenashi is much more likely to handle situations through violence and her normally pronounced patience becomes much lower. She becomes prone to anger and impatience when holding the sword, and she only becomes satisfied when blood is spilled for it.
