Hello everyone! My name is Chrissy, an aspiring author and illustrator, working to get her bachelors for Graphic Arts. I currently go to Marian University in Wisconsin, and work as a night shift CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) at a nursing home. During my free time between both my job and school, I find time to write novels and create illustrations. My overall goal is to publish these works someday and work as a graphic designer for the Arch Diocese of Milwaukee. However, because of my current major, I am able to incorporate a lot of my literature and characters into projects and other pieces, and am currently putting together a portfolio before C2E2. I am a very understanding and forgiving person, and love to encourage others in their artistic endeavors, helping in whatever way I can. I enjoy meeting and talking with other artists about techniques, art programs, and other advice. |
If you would like to talk to me, or be my friend, just send me a note or leave a comment below! I don't bite haha! XD

Kitsune are mischevious fox demons. Intelligent, playful, wise, and powerful, Kitsune are very strong spirits. Shape shifting and possesing people are their main powers. Their powers can, by the way, get stronger when they grow wiser and older. When they get wiser, they also get more tails (maximum 9). These demon foxes, while tricksters, can become faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives.

Characteristic tags (i.e. timidity, drunkenness, arrogance, etc.): Since she wasn't raised knowing how to respect gods and such of the sort, she has a tendency of stealing from shrines and eating/drinking from offerings if she's hungry enough.

The pair didn’t stay together because of the prejudice between the two races and went their separate ways after the affair.

Character’s motivation (Why they want the above goal): In accomplishing these goals she'll find peace within herself and find a place where she fits in.

He does not travel to the human world very often, and will only do so if it is extremely necessary.
Brief family history: Goroyama was born the 5th son of a larger Oni named Iwao. The family is part of no aristocracy in their race and have no ruling merit.
