I. Basic Information
» Name: Kyuubia Donyoku
» Titles: Nine tailed devil fox
» Age: Appears to be 20, is actually 347 years old
» Gender: Male
» Affiliation/Rank: Rouge/nuetral
» Shifter Appearance Written: Prefers to stay in his humanoid appearance which looks to be around 18 to 20 ish years of age. He has large fur covered ears and soft, fine, ivory while semi long hair. His height is roughly 6 ft. tall and his build is a bit more on the slender side. His skin is a palish white being lighter than many demons. His body seems fairly pure and devoid of any blemishes, scars, tattoos, piercings, or anything else of the sort. His eyes are a vibrant scarlet red and highly contrast to the rest of his features.
His most distinguishing feature is the 9 fluffy bushy tails which are nearly 5 feet long themselves and are the same pure ivory white as his hair. The tails are a dead give away to him being a kyuubi just as his name does, a nine tailed fox demon. His tails usually flow steadily about unless he is engaged in combat or moving at a brisk pace in which they stay out of the way of any movements or move in a fashion to aid in the movement such as shifting his momentum or acting as additional weak limbs.
Because of his large fox like ears, he does not possess normal human ears like many humanoids would. His larger ears obviously improve his overall sense of hearing and can make slight movements or twitches to reveal certain expressions or moods Kyuubia is feeling at the time. The mannerisms of his tails also aid in expressing his feelings better as well with how their movement and flow changes.
His attire is very similar to that of a shinigami, being a dark traditional style attire including dark loose fitting hakama. Even his footwear is the traditional style tabi a samurai or other fuedal era individual would wear. He finds such attire to better reflect nobility while remaining comfortable and easy to move in.
His appearance is highly deceptive as he is far more fickle and dangerous than he appears. His appearance is pure and almost approachable but his facial expression and eyes are what give away his true nature. He retains a fairly blank and empty look on his face most of the time which only changes when Kyuubia is feeling a strong emotion or need for expression. His smile always has an air of malice and greed.
» Shifter Appearance Picture:
» True Appearance Written: Kyuubia's true appearance is far more in line with the fox demon that he really is. His true form if that of a large fox with nine tails standing at roughly 10 ft. tall with a body length of 15 ft. His tails are also much longer at 10 ft. long usually waving over his body like a canopy. His fur is much longer and covers his fox like body while still retaining a pure ivory white. His body is slender and long, his legs tall and scrawny.
His face remains hidden by an ornate fox like mask keeping the appearance of his true face permanently concealed. 9 other masks adorn 8 of his 9 tails with the mask adorning his face being from the 9th tail. All of the masks depict different animals resembling different canine species and are attached to other ornate decorations. The ends of his tails are tipped in red like the tips of paint brushes.
In this form, he has a larger and more vicious appearance. He is more beast like yet at the same time more regal. His fur reflects light like a mirror and has an unparalleled shine to it. His teeth like sharpened polished marble. His paws are tipped with razor sharp claws turned down for better grip while running. His tails give away his feelings even more in this form as the gestures are larger due to the increase in the size of the tails.

I. Personality Traits
» Personality: Kyuubia is typically a quiet and reserved individual who prefers to leave others well enough alone and in turn expects to be left alone. He takes a passive approach to life and is willing to shrug off the small things. If one does happen to get on his bad side or corner him he shows a crueler, more malicious, and more vile side. Being a proud demon, he will not simply lie back and take unwanted treatment or harassment, he simply has a higher tolerance for such things. He is also very unforgiving and untrusting, not willing to openly trust others nor forgive wrongs done against him. It would take alot for him to consider forgiveness and even if he did he would refuse to forget the transgression for an eternity.
He is honest and loyal to a fault. His honesty can even be unwanted at times as he will point out only what he sees as fact be it good or back unless he is trying to get his way as greed is his greatest vice. His loyalty to someone will remain solid so long as it is beneficial for Kyuubia and so long as that loyalty is returned equally. Kyuubia will not settle for anything, he seeks only the finest to align himself with. He does tend to be a bit arrogant and prideful which comes with being a kyuubi, such demons always carry themselves with pride. Though he has his pride he's never one to shoot his mouth off or boast, he simply carries himself in a manner that makes him seem a bit self important.
He is cold and callous when it comes to others. He lets the cycle of life and death roll freely and unless he develops a strong bond with another he cares not for anyone. He cares even less for those from other worlds seeing them as lesser species to demons. He does what he sees as necessary to meet the end goal and only focuses on himself and his own goals. He's manipulative and controlling and will use others and stoop to unethical means if it means he can attain an important goal.
He is intelligent like most fox demons, wise beyond his years yet also a fickle trickster. He's persistent and willing to work hard toward what he wants. He is enduring and unyielding, willing to give his all and fight till his last breath if the cause is worth it. He's a realist as well and will take the reality of things into account and use logic and facts to prioritize something, for this reason, he will likely be someone's hero at any point if the probability for success is low. What matters to him is his survival and advancement in life. He seeks more, better, nicer, all of the things one can have to gain greater status in every way. It's almost instinctual, like a primal driving force pushing him to feed an unfathomable greed.
He is capable of emotions like most other beings but he restrains them and rarely shows them outwardly. He avoids open expression be it anger, love, joy, hate, or especially fear. He finds showing emotion as an unbecoming thing he should not partake in. He tends to bite his arm, lip, or tongue if he starts to show too much emotion in order to slow or stop the emotion from coming through. His voice is nearly always calm and mellow as well to further mask his emotions making him hard to read.
His mind can work in strange and unusual ways making him a very hard to read demon. He is unpredictable and deceptive when facing his foes though they may be few. He practices avoiding making enemies unless they are a necessary evil. Being a weaker demon in terms of physical strength means regularly fighting would be hazardous to his health which is why he chose a more passive lifestyle even though other demons may see him as weak. He keeps his strengths a secret as much as he can for the element of suprize is a valuable tool to him.
I. Character History
» History : Kyuubia is a demon of the blue foxfire and of greed, the greed that claimed his home and his fellow creatures. In life he was an old and wise fox, both intelligent and experienced in his advanced years but he was taken early by the greed of mankind. He wasn't the only one as many were claimed in a flash wildfire that claimed miles of forest in under a couple of days' time.
The fire that claimed his life, and the life of many other innocent creatures was an illegal operation to clear out miles of woodland for the sake of resource production and mining. The government wouldn't approve the destruction of the land so it was illegally burned to ashes and made out to be an accident for the sake of greedily claiming what was under the soil. Kyuubia was a demon born of this tragedy, a demon possessing the rage of the ruined land, of the greed that led to the land's downfall, and the swift moving fire that devoured all life in it's path. This in turn made Kyuubia a rather greedy and violent demon
He was young in terms of a demon as many demons were older than thousands of years old, Kyuubia was just a bit over a few hundred years old, still but a pup when compared to most. He wasn't quite an infant either though and could still relate to some of the older demons, caught in between what seemed to be a divide in the generations as some demons favored the ways of old and others in the younger generation loved the new ways and rule. Kyuubia was in it for himself and didn't care for either way so long as it didn't impede on how he wanted to live his life. Demons typically had limited laws to follow to begin with but depending on one's class you may have more or less laws and rules as a demon since those of higher rank can get away with stepping over those of a lower rank and get away with it. It was the law of life, the fittest survive, it wasn't what you knew it was who you knew. Kyuubia was bound by this natural law as much as any other in the demon realm.
He knew early on he needed power and status, he was going to be no one's servant and would bow to no one. His greed burned to have more, to control more, to know more, and to rise above all others. It was a natural drive for him, a truth he could not disown given who and what he was. The best way to advance in terms of power was to be within some sort of military faction, and that's what he did. He could also gather information on how to gain status in this manner as well. Getting to know other demons and get in good with upper ranked demons was going to be key as it didn't seem power alone could get a demon higher up in the hierarchy unless one had a whole lot of it. Despite being a part of numerous military factions early on in his time as a demon, he kept a nuetral opinion on most politics and just said what the demons around him wanted to hear. He agreed with those of higher rank and nobility if it was the truth, if it wasn't then he simply held his tongue and avoided the conversation, thus taking the clever way out.
Many demons questioned his fighting ability given the fact he was a beautiful demon with fine white hair and fur. He stood out alot of the time as white wasn't exactly a common color among demons. His small form made him appear frail and weak but he made up for all of that with speed and dexterity, relying on tactics that whittled a foe down and focused on vital points rather than going straight in head on. This was all a learned behavior as he tried various fighting styles before learning that. He tried fighting directly and fighting with various endurance styles but the truth was that his body was not designed to hold out. He couldn't take too many hits, he couldn't hit hard enough to break through heavy defenses, and he couldn't overpower most demons. He discovered that he could overpower those many times his size and strength using more obscure methods of fighting though such as using a foes weight against them, hitting weak vital spots which didn't require a hard hit to deal massive damage, and evading attacks rather than blocking them. His light body was built for speed and made him flexible enough to manuever out of large scale attacks. It also didn't hurt that with such a small body, there was less of him to hit.
Another discovery he made was that his demon magic potential was actually quite impressive. He was quite talented with abilities relying on his more ethereal based abilities which made up for his physical shortcomings and so he tried to hone these abilities as well. Playing to his strengths was the more intelligent course of action, much better than trying to improve what he was weak at. He didn't choose to rely on his demon magic when in actual combat though, only when facing much weaker foes than himself. With a body that could not hold out against alot of attacks, using abilities that aren't as well trained was never an intelligent move to make.
He eventually found his way into a small house that he felt content with and settled into a life as a demon. He tried to mingle with many female demons which wasn't too hard since his appearance wasn't all too lacking but his cold emotions always seemed to end things shortly for him in that department. He only really became attached to one young woman but lost her to a demon noble and slunk into a temporary depression. He didn't let the depression linger for long though as he saw it as his own fault. If he was a noble then he could have a better house, a better life, better circumstances, and a better woman. If he was going to eventually become millions of years old, he needed the power to live that long life out comfortably. With the new generation of demons he would have alot of competition though since these demons were known to be ruthless in comparison to the older demons which normally lived in more refined ways.
As he grew older, he trained his demon energy even more, it was a difficult demon energy to control given the fact his possessive power was based on greed. Most of the time it manifested as a fast, furious, blue flame which vibrated with energy and was driven to consume all energy that it touched. It was a very hungry sort of energy which could get out of hand easily. Kyuubia's body had been fatigued from absorbing too much energy through it many times as he was ill trained in limiting and restraining the energy. His body could only control so much energy given a demon's body had to be trained to handle more and more energy with time. Kyuubia's flame would endlessly devour energy and give it to Kyuubia at a rapid pace so long as the flame was burning and had something to burn meaning it would simply fill Kyuubia past his body's capacity. Kyuubia kept trying to push this ability beyond but even when his capacity was trained and he could hold more demon energy, his flame would simply surpass that limit and cause the same ill effects. It wasn't till he thought outside of the box that he got ahold of this power. Yes, this power was useful for keeping him at his peak energy, but it had an even greater and more clever use that Kyuubia hadn't thought of.
Kyuubia started playing with focusing and firing off a compressed form of the absorbed energy as his body recieved it to essentially purge his body of the overbuilt energy and to his suprize it worked quite well with a bit of training. This power had a new face to it, a new use. It worked with his fighting style of turning one's energy against them, vengeance if you will. Kyuubia had inherited another possession from his death in his former life which had went unnoticed which was the wish for vengeance, the cry from all life murdered that night. It was overlooked before this point in time but it made sense with his manners of turning the power of others on themselves.
These discoveries made Kyuubia a turning point that made him even stronger in the long run. He was finally able to regularly use demon energy and demon power in regular combat as it was quite a bit more refined and didn't leave him disadvantaged with it's use. His fighting style improved as he became more one with that power due to knowing it better. He was able to take on strong demons, some stronger than him, for the simple fact he could replenish his demon energy and his fighting style relied on taking little to no hits. He worked more on his evasion and became very hard to hit with an attack but did improve his endurance since he wasn't immune to being hit. His physical strength didn't seem to be improving much but his endurance seemed fairly improvable as he could augment his endurance with his demon energy and simply learn to resist more and continue fighting. These new strengths didn't come as easy to him and admittingly he had to take quite a few hits to even start to show improvements. He wasn't unbeatable and he did take plenty of losses too, he had been beaten within seconds of his own demon life many times but his drive to survive and claim all for himself kept him alive and usually forced him to flee to fight another day. Sure it wasn't the most dignified way to fight, but it preserved his life and he couldn't become more powerful and wealthier if he was dead.
Those he lived around and those who knew him considered him a rather nuetral demon despite the fact he had served in quite a number of militarized factions. He wasn't against the new or old generations, he simply didn't care for either. He also wasn't against joining the royal army or shadow fall, he simply hadn't done it yet. He even considered joining one of the two many times as there were likely some benefits with them that could improve his power and skill, not to mention it was a fast track to getting to know more powerful and esteemed demons. He didn't care to live in the tiny house forever after all.
He had tried to join royal demon families a few times as he gained control over his power and aged a bit as a demon but none would take him. He wasn't too weak or unbearable, he just simply wasn't yet worthy. He's made it a goal to eventually join a royal family though and maybe even become a demon king or demon lord but he knew well that such goals would take quite a bit of time and work. He was ambitious not stupid. He originally didn't care about other realms or those from them but in recent years he has developed a curiousity toward the other realms because of outsiders and stories. He wanted to see what was out there, to take anything he wanted from those realms. He didn't want to leave the demon relam for good though as he still had his sights on being a demon king or lord. He knew not how to traverse other dimensions and didn't care how his presence would effect them. He still began planning trips none the less, for it was only a matter of time before he would get to see something outside of his home world.
» Equipment: A magatama beaded neckless made of jade and obsidian he uses to restrain his demon energy when not fighting to prevent himself from accidentally using it.
Needles capable of housing very small portions of his demon energy. He uses them for acupuncture type pressure point attacks and to inject his blue flame into a target at range as his flame can quickly grow from a small flicker to a large flame if a target let's it continue to burn.
I. Natural Abilities & Skills
» Natural Abilities:
Kyuubia has honed his demon energy to reinforce his physical attacks. He can charge his attacks with energy at the point of impact the moment before making contact to double or even triple it's power. He can only charge the attack for a second or two so it requires perfect timing to perform. He uses it to augment his physical abilities since he is not physically strong. He can also focus it before being hit in the same manner to use it defensively and reduce the amount of damage he takes which can save his life.
Kyuubia has learned to use the demon flash step and has become quite talented with it. Being a speed and evasive type of fighter led him to learn this skill a bit on the early end since it is a highly complimenting skill for him to know. He tries to use it sparingly and hold it back for when he truely needs it due to the fact he could possibly use it up before he truly needs it. Kyuubia believes this to be a skill serving a specific purpose and also knows it can give him an edge if he can get a foe to use up their high speed movement skills before he does.
Kyuubia has also learned the skill shadow movement, though he learned it from another demon know needed the skill to move his massive body out of it's own way. Kyuubia sees this technique as a last resort only as he has found he can no longer utilize his demon flash step once his time limit runs out. He saves the attack primarily to make a quick escape when in over his head but will sometimes use it if he knows he can end a battle during it's duration.
I. Possesisve Powers
» Possessive Powers:
Blue fox fire - Kyuubia can create and control a blue fire which burns with a fury beyond that of a normal flame, comparable to the flame of a cutting torch. This flame vibrates with energy and burns up any energy source it clings to turning it into demon energy which it sent to Kyuubia. This flame will burn until Kyuubia can extinguish it or until it runs out of a fuel source. A weaker flame can be generated giving Kyuubia more control over it but it doesn't burn as fast, these weaker flames can be extinguished by water. The normal and stronger flames take a bit of time for Kyuubia to control or extinguish but they are resistant to water and can survive some special types of supernatural water. These flames can be used defensively by devouring an oncoming attack, this can weaken an attack or if the attack lacks alot of size, speed, or energy it can completely devour the attack. This flame does also cause physical burns and can reduce objects to ash if the objects are affected by normal fire. A major downside to this power is that Kyuubia himself is NOT immune to his own flame. He has to avoid the flame catching to him as it will devour his energy and disperse it into the air but Kyuubia has a fire immunity and will not suffer physical burns.
I. Possessive Drive
Note: Demons can have anywhere from one to three Possessive Drive forms. So just repaste it if your demon has more than one.
» Possessive Drive Appearance: In Kyuubia's first possessive drive state, his appearance doesn't change too much. His claws sharpen and become covered in the blue fox fire. His tails all glow with a faint white light and the tips ignite with the blue flame. His eyes turn from their normal scarlet and glow a vibrant see blue then they too seem to burn with a small faint blue fox fire as well. His body becomes surrounded with what appears to be will-o-whisps which are all small flames formed for rapid and defensive usage.
» Possessive Drive Benefits: Kyuubia gains a defensive ring of his fox fire first off, this allows him to quickly use the whisps as rapid fire projectiles or to place them between himself and an attack to minimize or nullify the damage. His claws and tails also become conduits for spreading the flame to an opponent as well making it easier for him to get his flame onto a target. He can better mold and control the flame in this form, being able to create swords or other weapons from the flame, these weapons can have some bit of phyical endurance but aren't as durable as a zanpakto per se. The blue fox fire doesn't seem to effect him when in his released form as his released form develops an immunity to the major draw back but it does have a constant energy cost to stay in this form and his body does have to feed it some energy to keep the flames all lit meaning that the form still have a major drawback of constant energy consumption creating a time limit for the form's use.

I. Roleplay Sample
» Role Play Sample:
Howling, roaring, screeching, the ruined town was alive with deafening sounds and noises coming from two small armies facing off against one another. Angry scowls and threatening glares were exhanged from beasts of all forms as the weather itself seemed to follow the mood filled with the demonic energy in the air. The air was thick, almost choking if a human were present for the experience. The intent to kill filled the area as no sentiments nor mercy would be spared today.
It was a battle of territory, property, and control. Two demon factions both believing that this small town belonged to them and the other should not be there. The reason they felt the town wasn't big enough for them both? Because they all hated one another, they needed an excuse to off the other faction and this was a good enough reason for a tiny scale battle. A battle that would likely make the town next to worthless anyway but demons didn't always care about property values, they cared about pride.
Kyuubia himself found himself roped into this battle, he was enjoying a fine cup of tea before the commotion caused it to spill. He was ready to put the beat down on some demon ruffian or something but came out to this. A few friends of his had taken the side to the right of him, and he himself didn't care for the side on the left so he obviously took up arms on the right side. This faction against faction scuffle was part of a bigger issue as both sides were once a part of two small demon armies that regularly opposed one another yet found themselves in the same town when those armies were desolved. It was all a matter of expense and space, this was the town they could afford with what they needed and it had the space to house all of them but they could never get over the past, a problem many demons seem to have. Kyuubia wasn't big on conflict, normally being nuetral and passive, but he had a particular dislike for these brutes and had suffered a great deal of harm and pain from them in the past. His inner fire burned with fury and excitement for this battle wasn't only about old grudges and dislikes. There was an underlying pleasure in fighting one another as demons were normally quite combative. These factions had fought for so long it became normal and almost like a game for them to beat eachother to a pulp and even kill one another at times. It preserved their honor as demons, weeded out the weak among them, made them stronger, and was a way to reinforce any bonds that had been formed.
The first attack came forth, a massive stone boomerang big and durable enough to reduce bone to crumbs or dust. It hurled into another demon on the front line and within the next second the town exploded into a war zone with demons of all types wielding their skills like experts. None of the demons were particularly over the top strong, it was the simple fact that they had fought one another for so long that they had eachother figured out. They were desensitized to eachother's abilities and talents making most moves used minorly effective or completely useless but it was fun for all of them none the less.
Kyuubia had taken to fighting two other demons at once, selecting two he knew were slow to react and attack which played to his advantages of speed. It was a match up he had taken to most of the time during the old wars which played out well for him. He never really beat them, he was always able to be the only one to land a hit though despite it low effectiveness. This allowed Kyuubia to use them as living training dummies while also meaning he could easily avoid their attacks and thus survive the battle without a fatal wound. Some would call it cowardice, he called it intelligence.
He dashed back and forth around them, avoiding punches and the occasional swing or slice of an earth shattering great broadsword which seemed to change the landscape every time it was used. A few close call were all they managed to get on the clever white fox as Kyuubia continued to his pressure points at their necks and below their ribcages, changing the point of attack and approach occasionally so as to avoid creating a recognizable pattern. Kyuubia smirked at his own cleverness but didn't take into account that these brother demons had seen his tricks one time too many and had figured out his little game. They weren't going to play this time, no they were going to trap and crush the overconfident furball.
Kyuubia closed in for a pressure point strike using 4 needles between his knuckles on his right fist. He hoped the attack would be enough to drop one of them so that he would have a chance to go for a more lethal head attack. This was the first time he went for lethality but he had really hoped to enjoy that tea today and was carrying a bit of a grudge right now for it's demise.
Just as he closed in, the broadsword came out of nowhere in between him and his target, his enhanced senses of sight and hearing prevented him from being hit but these brothers knew all too well that Kyuubia had amazing vision and hearing. The broadsword had beed stabbed far into the ground, straight down in Kyuubia's path with the blunt end facing Kyuubia rather than the sharp end. Normally they would have forced the blade forward and up with the sharp edge outward to try and slice Kyuubia in two in an uppercut sort of fashion but this was different. Kyuubia wasn't given time to react or think though as the blunt side of the blade lunged forward and upward pulling up a large chunk of ground below Kyuubia sending him flying upward and back, the second brother had already started moving as the blade moved and managed to forcefully hit Kyuubia mid air, where Kyuubia couldn't really evade, with a solid fist of rage. The force of the punch broke 3 of Kyuubia's ribs and his arm and sent him flying through a building and into the ground. He was badly injured and knocked out, with his frailty he wasn't the sort who could take such a powerful attack both at point blank and in a position where he couldn't defend or deflect some of the damage. He would be out of the battle this time, at the mercy of whatever came next with only hope for another demon protecting him. What would transpire next?
