Craig is Dennis Nedry, the fed-up underpaid (or so he claims) tech geek working at Jurassic park
He's underpaid because he keeps asking for ludicrously expensive hardware instead of a raise. There is no way he needs an SGI workstation.

I'm a Wikipedia editor. I know exactly how useful it is (or isn't) for these kinds of discussions. Small groups and even individuals can manipulate it with a moderate amount of effort.

Kitsune in English is a cultural import, like tanuki or maneki-neko. Respect it and the culture.

In English-speaking cultures, there's no definition of a "kitsune" that's separate from Japanese tradition, it's so recent an import that it didn't make it into the Monster Manual, and the Monster Manual has entries for cheap plastic figurines.
