Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Hengeyokai, Ears of Inari
An impulsive young trickster in over his head.
Ears of Inari is a young Kitsune that has been charged with cleansing the tainted lands in which he was encountered. The source of the corruption was tracked to a cave found by the Wu, and nearby evidence indicated it was due to improperly stored nuclear waste. The Wu was in no condition to explore the tainted cave and assist in removing the taint, but they gave their word that they would return to assist.
Sadly, Ears of Inari was discovered and killed by the agents of the spirit corrupting the land before the party could return. His corpse was discovered mutilited.
