RACE: Kitsune

DESCRIPTION:
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 zenko ( literally good foxes) are benevolent, celestial foxes associated with the god Inari; they are sometimes simply called Inari foxes. On the other hand, the yako ( literally field foxes, also called nogitsune) 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.

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 100 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 credit them with infinite wisdom (omniscience).

ABILITIES:
Shape shifting- Kitsune can shapeshift their form, transforming and reshaping down to the genetic and cellular structure. They can impersonate others or enhance one's body for combat, either by turning into animals, monsters or make the body stronger.

Fox Fire- Kitsune are able to generate and manipulate fox-fire which usually manifests as fire, electricity and/or light. Kitsune who are the main users of this power usually expel it from their mouth or tails.

Certain users may be able to use fox-fire  as a form of travel, either by riding the fox-fire or changing into/becoming it. (user must choose their element and is stuck with that one)

[Kitsune are only allowed to start off with 1, 5, or 7 tails. Kitsune are allowed to create one other ability that is supplementary in nature, to accommodate for already having a power.)
HISTORY:

Kitsune  is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. According to Yōkai folklore, all foxes have the ability to shape shift into women. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others—as foxes in folklore often do—other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives.

Foxes and human beings lived close together in ancient Japan; this companionship gave rise to legends about the creatures. Kitsune have become closely associated with Inari, a Shinto kami or spirit, and serve as its messengers. This role has reinforced the fox's supernatural significance. The more tails a kitsune has—they may have as many as nine—the older, wiser, and more powerful it is. Because of their potential power and influence, some people make offerings to them as to a deity.

You've stated that Kitsune possess superior intelligence as part of the race requirement. How do you plan to factor this in accordance with the stat rules?

I assume a kitsune can only have one of these abilities, yes? Either shapeshifting or fox fire as it's starting power?

Also, if it is fox fire, why is it multi elemental? Given that it is but fire, how do you have the ability to spew electricity or light?
Also, especially since they're elemental, how does one use it for hypnosis, or draining of the life force?

So, basically, at this point, you're asking for a Stat boost, two abilities and a bigger multitude of combat skills. That'll make this race the OPest race on the site. I cannot allow that.

Make necessary edits, and then notify me again.

Ill go through the list of concerns one by one so its easier to get through:

1) No they do not have superior intelligence, its apart of their lore hence why it says "believed" to be instead of directly stating it to be. That would be more dependent on the character being made if the user wants to go that route or make it their supplementary ability.

2) No. They get Shapeshifting which is their base ability, Fox fire which is their base power which takes place of their roll for a blessing/power, as agreed by En. Also fox fire isn't just known to be fire, it is as the lore states either fire, lightning and/or light which allows the Kitsune in question to choose from one of the three.

So in short they do not get a stat boost, they receive one power and an their race ability and thats that.

Alright.

Therefore, you need to put in there that Kitsune will have to choose their element at the beginning, and that'll be the only element the fox-fire will manifest in.
Also, put in that any manifestation of said ability and power will have to be put in as a combat skill, while the ability/power themselves must be put in an application.

Just edit those in, and you'll be approved.

There ability and powers are within this app itself, the only thing a Kitsune would need to make is their optional supplementary ability and that would be it. Hence why Fox fire is their only real power and shapeshifting is the only ability. Everything else however is edited
