Although Kitsune, Akari spends almost all of her time out in public in human form. Her natural human form is that of a beautiful woman with dark brown hair with a crimson tint. Her eyes are a light shade of brown with a reddish tint, which form into an almond shape. Her face is soft and seductive, with a thin, sharp nose and supple lips. She has tan skin with a slender, athletic build. She generally wears black wool pants with slippers, and a white blouse with a black drawstring which barely covers her backside. When going out to “work”, she wears a dark leather jacket which is full of small pockets which aren’t visible.
In vulpan form, more shades of red hair grow from her skin, in addition to some blacks and whites on her paws, ears, face, and tail. The tail bushes out from beneath the back of her blouse, through a slit in her pants. She chooses the human form she does because it is the most similar to her natural form. This way she feels she can still be herself in a way even when hiding her identity


Akari’s personality is infectious. She has a very clever and suggestive way of speaking which grants her the ability to earn the favor of just about any man (charming). While she gets a kick out of the manipulation of those attracted to her, she has a deep desire for strong personal relationships. Since she chooses to hide her true identity, there are very few to whom she truly opens up.

Akari is wild at heart. Living in the most urban zones of Cheliax, this trait is most commonly made manifest by sneaking around restricted parts of town, taking on other forms, and stealing as she pleases. She often takes things just to rebel in her own way against people who cross her. She will even do it against her friends and allies to express her frustration, only to return them when she sees fit. She would never truly steal from, hurt, or deceive someone she saw as a true friend.


Akari comes from a tribe which resides in the Barrowood, north of Westcrown and west of Egorian. Here she grew up among those of her tribe. As a young girl, Akari spent a lot of time with her friends. Together, they spent hours developing their talents as shifters, and were able to master it by the age of 12 (Realistic Likeness). After years of exploring the Barrowood, she came to learn that the humans of Cheliax were increasing the speed in which they were harvesting the forest, namely barroak and shade maple. Deeply vexed by the selfish tendencies of the Chelish, she has held a grudge against them since.
In the tribe, Akari is known as a flirt. She not only doesn’t deny this, but uses her reputation to aid in her manipulative behavior. Men generally revel at the opportunity to get conned by her. She is extremely confident at what she does well, and does not have a hard time brushing off failure, as she finds other ways to get even.

Why she’s in jail:

When she was old enough (18), she followed the Chelish lumber caravan down the Adivian River back to Egorian. Determined to undermine the logging operation, she waited until evening and set fire to the camp. Seeing the patrol closing in, and no good place hide, she used what time she had to shift into male and pretended to be an angry woodsman. Charged with the destruction of government property and trespassing, she is sentenced to five years of slavery. Akari has no intention of serving out her sentence, and is waiting for the right time to make her escape. With her first operation a success, she still has plans to take shots at the Chelaxian government whenever possible.
