Kitsune is a very important character in Japanese folklore.
In Japanese mythology it belongs to the category of Yokai,
of spirits: the word kitsune means "spirit of the fox".
The main features of a Kitsune are its marked intelligence, its long life,
during which manages to take on ever more powerful supernatural qualities e above
all the ability to transform and take on different appearances,
in particularly that of a beautiful young woman.
Another feature of it is that the older she gets, the stronger and wiser she becomes.
You can tell the age of a kitsune counting its queues, which can reach the maximum number of nine.
