Kitsune – despite possessing magical powers and superior intelligence it may take you 100 years to transform into human form. Zenko or Yako – possession is mandatory, shapeshifting using your paranormal abilities. By this time you may have grown have nine tails and can see and hear everything that happens in the world.

You may choose whichever human form you find suitable, even duplicating the appearance of a specific person – but you must always remember to hide your tails. Kitsunetsuki, the state of being possessed by a fox.

“Strange is the madness of those into whom demon foxes enter. Sometimes they run naked shouting through the streets. Sometimes they lie down and froth at the mouth, and yelp as a fox yelps.

On some part of the body of the possessed a moving lump appears under the skin, which seems to have a life of its own. Prick it with a needle, and it glides instantly to another place. By no grasp can it be so tightly compressed by a strong hand that it will not slip from under the fingers.

Possessed folk are also said to speak and write languages of which they were totally ignorant prior to possession. They eat only what foxes are believed to like – tofu, aburagé, azukimeshi, and they eat a great deal, alleging that not they, but the possessing foxes, are hungry”.

– Koizumi Yakumo
