Forum Nickname: Ikkin
Transformations: 9-tailed Fox (very uncommon); as a 9-Tailed fox, is able to transform into anything natural (...yes, demons/fae/whatever count)
Appearance and Clothing: Long feathered light-brown hair, hazel-brown eyes, light skin, medium sized. Wears a blue tunic with sleeves that end at her elbows, a dark blue hakama, and even darker blue gloves that come up past her elbows. Her clothes are imbued with magical abilities that allow them to harden into armor to protect her when struck; unfortunately, this has the disadvantage of restricting her movement and increasing the clothes' weight just like normal armor would.
Character type: Knight of Meridell/Pirate/Air Mage/Firebender
Weapon of Choice: Purplish crystalline sword perfect for channeling air elemental magic (looks like a mix between a katana and a cutlass, with a katana-shaped blade that's a little bit shorter than a katana, a pommel like a knight's sword, and a hand-guard like a cutlass)
Magical capabilities: Ikkin uses a special type of magic created by the kitsune which involves the manipulation of matter on the microscopic level by imposing the power of the will on the physical world. As a kitsune, she is a natural user of fire magic, but her training was focused more on air magic, and so some of her most impressive magics are related to air rather than fire. The instinctual nature of her fire magic allows her to integrate it more seamlessly with her physical fighting, however, so she often uses fire magic in conjunction with swordfighting.
Despite the reputation for illusion-making that kitsune have, Ikkin isn't actually very good at this. She could possibly create an illusion of another person, but it wouldn't last very long and wouldn't be able to interact with the physical world. For smaller illusions, she has better luck - she could create the illusion of a stick that could hold her own weight, for instance - but she generally does not do this if it is not absolutely necessary, because it's some of the most difficult magic she knows.
Ikkin is very skilled at reading other people's magical signatures/auras, and can even determine who most non-magicians are by their latent magical power.
As a shapeshifter, Ikkin can only change to her kitsune form while in human form; in kitsune form, however, she can shift into anything natural/supernatural (any person, animal, rock, etc.). She tends to avoid doing this as well, because she likes her human form a lot, and Sev tends to get annoyed with her when she changes.
Personality: Highly loyal and stubborn, Ikkin fights to the bitter end for any cause that she thinks is right or any person who she thinks of as a friend. She knows this, however, and tends to avoid getting involved if it looks like someone else is handling the situation, but she remains on the lookout in case her help is needed. Being a kitsune, she has a great liking for cleverness, and likes to try to come up with witty replies whenever she can, even when it might be best to keep her mouth shut (whether or not she succeeds in actually being witty is a different question, however). She's very curious and likes to get to the bottom of any situation that comes up, regardless of whether it's actually important, and she'll sometimes waste more time than is necessary on finding out about the workings of the forum. This leads her to analyze the different kinds of magic around the forum, which can be useful, but it can also get her into some sticky situations. She can be fairly long-winded in explaining the things that she analyzed, though she hasn't yet gotten to the point where she adds in pie charts and annotated bibliographies.
Ikkin tends to resort to violence more quickly than absolutely necessary, usually in the interest of getting her point across more easily - she feels that a swift thwack on the head tends to be more effective than explaining her annoyance in words, and her temper easily flares out of control. However, she does not resort to lethal force unless it's entirely necessary or she's severely provoked (in which case, she tends to just summon Sev and let him do the dirty work for her). If she does lose control, however, she usually has Sev set things right again; the lack of control is probably at least partly related to the lack of real consequences to her actions.
Rivalries: Has a bit of a friendly rivalry with Hu.
Father: Most likely Strife
Siblings: Too many to count. Ask Leoness. XD (Includes Rider, KitC, and the Spirit of the Bloids, though)
Children: Thundy, Bag (adopted), and Dragon (adopted in an attempt to avoid unwanted marriage proposals)
Significant Other: None
A snarky, sarcastic phoenix who was magically created by the grey magic at the Edge of the NTWF from Ikkin's memories of phoenixes. Ikkin offered to bind her soul to his to keep him from fading in return for the revival of Kiddo, and he's been with her ever since.
Sev's original personality was pulled together from elements of Ikkin's own personality (particular the fiery traits), as well as some more villainous traits drawn from other phoenixes and people Ikkin associated with phoenixes. His soul has been slowly changed by its proximity with Ikkin's, however, and his darker impulses have been softened considerably as elements from Ikkin's soul started to replace the false soul he was created with. He has a real soul of his own now, and could survive without the bond to Ikkin if he wanted to, but they've become so similar that he has no motivation to leave her.
His fire can either consume everything, like other phoenix fire on the NTWF (which he has even tested on the walls of Mod Squad), or bring back the dead. His tears have healing properties, but getting him to cry is a definite task.
Rae: Rae is a little orphan phoenix who showed up in the eastern forest of the NTWF and insists that Sev is his father. He isn't Sev's biological son, but, as Sev realized, that's not really important.
Rae is very young and is still learning how to use his magic. He can't resurrect people, but his tears still have some healing properties. He can't teleport, either.
While he can speak clearly, he's still rather immature, and shifts between emotional poles quickly. He's very energetic, and normally is very happy, almost contagiously so. You don't want to upset him, though. He cries easily.
He's afraid of blood and people who are hurt, so he doesn't make a very good healer.
