[center][u][b]~A History of Kistune~[/b][/u][/center]

Before this tale goes any further perhaps a small definition of what Kitsune truely are is in order. This is only a small exert that may help in deciphering the how and why of her true nature. Take it as you will.

"Kitsune are believed to possess superior intelligence, long life, and magical powers. They are a type of yōkai, or spiritual entity, and the word kitsune is often translated as fox spirit. However, this does not mean that kitsune are ghosts, nor that they are fundamentally different from regular foxes. Because the word spirit is used to reflect a state of knowledge or enlightenment, all long-lived foxes gain supernatural abilities.

There are two common classifications of kitsune. The myōbu are benevolent, celestial foxes associated with Inari; they are sometimes simply called Inari foxes. On the other hand, the wild nogitsune (literally, field foxes) tend to be mischievous or even malicious. Local traditions add further types. For example, a ninko is an invisible fox spirit that human beings can only perceive when it possesses them. Another tradition classifies kitsune into one of thirteen types defined by which supernatural abilities the kitsune possesses.

Physically, kitsune are noted for having as many as nine tails. Generally, a greater number of tails indicates an older and more powerful fox; in fact, some folktales say that a fox will only grow additional tails after it has lived 1,000 years. One, five, seven, and nine tails are the most common numbers in folk stories. When a kitsune gains its ninth tail, its fur becomes white or gold. These kyūbi no kitsune (nine-tailed foxes) gain the abilities to see and hear anything happening anywhere in the world. Other tales attribute them infinite wisdom (omniscience).

A kitsune may take on human form, an ability learned when it reaches a certain age. Usually 100 years, although some tales say 50. As a common prerequisite for the transformation, the fox must place reeds, a broad leaf, or a skull over its head. Common forms assumed by kitsune include beautiful women, young girls, or elderly men. These shapes are not limited by the fox's age or gender, and a kitsune can duplicate the appearance of a specific person. Foxes are particularly renowned for impersonating beautiful women. Common belief in medieval Japan was that any woman encountered alone, especially at dusk or night, could be a fox.

In some stories, kitsune have difficulty hiding their tails when they take human form; looking for the tail, perhaps when the fox gets drunk or careless, is a common method of discerning the creature's true nature. Variants on the theme have the kitsune retain other foxlike traits, such as a coating of fine hair, a fox-shaped shadow, or a reflection that shows its true form. Kitsune have a fear and hatred of dogs even while in human form, and some become so rattled by the presence of dogs that they revert to the shape of a fox and flee. A particularly devout individual may be able to see through a fox's disguise automatically.

Other supernatural abilities commonly attributed to the kitsune include possession, mouths or tails that generate fire or lightning (known as kitsune-bi; literally, fox-fire), willful manifestation in the dreams of others, flight, invisibility, and the creation of illusions so elaborate as to be almost indistinguishable from reality. Some tales speak of kitsune with even greater powers, able to bend time and space, drive people mad, or take fantastic shapes such as a tree of incredible height or a second moon in the sky. Other kitsune have characteristics reminiscent of vampires or succubi and feed on the life or spirit of human beings, generally through sexual contact."

~Prologue~[/b][/u][/center]

Stories often begin with "a long time ago", "In a world far away" or some other such nonsense. This story will not start that way. Nor shall it end with "Happily Ever After" or some other contrite meanings to make you all think this is something of happiness. No, this is quite the opposite. However, do not think for one instance that this is some lesson learned or love lost. No, such things are not to be written in this tale. This is something else all together more lost and confused. So with that being said, do not envy me. Do not want to be me, or have lived the life I've had.

Be thankful that it's not your story....

[center][u][b]~The Past~[/b][/u][/center]

There is a time and place for everything and everything in it's place. So the saying goes at least. There's no real reason for her to be in any place or any time. A contradiction to wives tales in a matter of speaking. No reason for her to be at all. Ever since the moment of her appearance in the world she's been confused. No direction, ryhme or reason. Just an appearance. No immaculate conception or tale of revenge. The circumstances of such being unknown as the wind is uncertain in it's true motivations for making a piece of paper blow harmlessly or the reasons behind a tempest bent on destruction. However, we digress from the point...or do we?

A short time ago she found herself with sleep filled eyes near a wall in Reliance. A few faint crackles and the flickering of a fire inside the burnt out shell of a bus were the first sights her eyes saw in this strange place. Not quite sure of all her thoughts or why she had ended up where she was now, she quickly befriended the wall. Spending a great deal of time listening to what it had to say and exploring her new surroundings. Not knowing where she's come from or where she's going, this part neko/part kitsune is merely a lost mind. Seemingly left to wander in her thoughts and the city of Remembrance. However, she knows otherwise at times. Faint glimpses of larger things haunt her dreams as the city itself whispers to her like a lover in the early morning hours as endless, relentless whispering from which there is no escape. While she is awake as they mix with the sounds and sights of her open eyes. Tearing her mind apart or putting it back together, no one can be sure. However, glimpses flash through her eyes in a sort of vivid lucidity that can only be described as true clarity. At least that's the only explaination that's been thought of thus far.

As time passed, a new horizon opened up to her eyes...the city of Remembrance. Reluctantly she left her wall and the only home she knew of as far as she was concerned and ventured off into the alleys and corners of the vast new spaces laid before her. Still remaining solitary in nature and shying away from larger groups, a slight glimpse of hope swirls inside her head to find another like her somewhere. Still unsure of where she's come from or why she's even here, she travels on. Finding the strange and unusual places in the city to call home. Quick glimpses of her past randomly flashing through her mind as moments of clarity in a sea of uncertaintanty. Memories of betrayal, past loves, failed conquests, seduction and trickery. What's to them? Some key to moving foreward? Regardless of these questions, the others she comes across think her to be completely insane as she babbles on about talking to pipes and buildings or starts arguements with her tails. Perhaps she is just as they see her. Perhaps there is some other reason she's been abandoned here...

Having been left to her own devices for so long she's become quite adept at making do for herself. Wandering the streets insearch of whatever she may need. Paying no real heed for where it comes from or how she gets it. Picking what she can off of dead bodies (sometimes live ones), scraps found in dumpsters and toss aways in the sewers. Where it comes from makes no difference. If she was sent here for a purpose it's been lost somewhere in the folds of her mind to be left alone or to resurface. One cannot be sure as she is not sure either. The only things she knows is the city, she likes to fix things, that the dead are easier search than the living and a name...Inari.

~The Now~[/b][/u][/center]

There comes a time for every creature to move on. That time has come to fruition for Kiera. As she wanders the streets of NoR for the final time she whispers faint goodbyes to the city that she loved the company of so much. Stopping momentarily to shed a quiet tear on her couch and gives it one final lick. A half hearted laugh filling the underpass as she quietly whispers "Always...rasberries"

Turning slowly she gazes about what was once her home and sighs heavily. The wind rushing through, giving her one last caress as if a lover in the night. Quickly shaking off the feeling she heads off, leaving the city behind. Everything she ever found or fixed wrapped around her body in hopes that it will comfort her some as she searches for a new home.

As she reaches the ends of the limits, she stops and turns her head to look over her shoulder. Eyes slightly tear filled and then turns to face the wastelands. The wind licking at her ears as she scans the horizon and whispers "I'll miss you" before taking her first step outside of the lands she knew so well. Slowly she become nothing more than a shadow as the glint of the sun on her white and grey tails fades in the distance....and then she is gone.

After spending what seemed like an eternity wandering the wastelands that's become of the world her eyes catch a glimpse of something on the horizon. The wind gently brushing across her face as she rubs her eyes. Half thinking it's a mirage or some other kind of hallucination. The skyline of a new city becoming ever more apparent with each step. Her walk quickening to an even brisker pace, then to a job. Nearing a full sprint as a new hope has awakened in her and just as she is within a mere few hundred feet, the sand having given way to asphault beneath her feet once more she stops abruptly. The only sound swirling about her ears the soft wind pushing the sands along the road. She hears nothing else. Not even a whisper from the buildings or anything else around her. A thin, grubby finger poking at the inside of hear as she tries to clean it out. Thinking maybe they're just clogged.

Shrugging it off she looks a bit worriedly at her surroundings. Half wondering if she's gone deaf or somehow forgot how to listen, turning into those that were so confused in the last place she called home. Home. The thought makes her laugh outloud to herself softly as she realizes that the idea was never something she really knew. The memories of the last place she called home all but a distant memory. Fragmented and shredded just like the other thoughts in her mind. The only things she remembers from where she came from is a neko that she's befriended. The only creature that had really dared to be her friend and show some kind of compassion and understanding. A hope stirs in her as she wonders if the neko has made it this far....made it to this new refuge from the barren world that surrounds it.

Looking back over her shoulder a moment at the nothingness that's become her only reality once more and then turns away from it. She steps foreward into the city, a bit wary and unsure of what these new surroundings will bring for her...impossible for her to know. A few sparks flitting through the clouds in her eyes as a dim red glow takes them over. Her hair turning from the muted blacks from before to a firey hue, her fur turning pale as a fresh fallen snow.

Something has changed on her journey...something in her mind has snapped. Breaking it even more as she giggles a bit to herself, almost wickedly. A lone finger runs lightly along a wall as a grin tugs at the corners of her lips. She leans ever so slowly towards it. Her lips mere centimeters away from it and whispers quietly "Hello old friend....."
