Karishad's craziness can not be contained, not even with panel dividers. Do foxes often break into Tarot's house? Karishad sure was quick to put away his extra tails. But really, you can't get mad at a face like that.

It’s never the number of tails
but more the tales in the Fox
that scares the little soul here
right out of invisible socks.
A tale of tails by Karishad
with NogitsuneGabe assisting
has the Fox talking fast
and Kitsune not resisting.
Tarot sees and Tarot fears
for the future of her home.
C’mon, guys, ease her fears would you?

I can’t find any real info on how they get the all nine tails but apparently once they do their fur turns golden or white and that’s when they gain the omnipotence. There is still time.

Again someone needs to do a strip with Kitsune and Itsuki. Historically Kitsunes and tanukis have a rivalry.

I think this is Karishad (the person) telling us, in as canon a way as non-canon can be, that Karishad (the character) is NOT Kitsune's avatar. They're just good friends.

honestly, the possibility of them being related that this popped into my head, rather than the wierd theories about misunderstood game mechanics that usually crop up actually frightens me more...

Ehehe, nice comic. :) It's based on a speculation, but... We knew it! :o Karishad is Great Kitsune's avatar... :? Also, his invisible tails project shadows, as seems. :P Yeah, I wonder of what obscure stuff they're talking about together...
Very nice work, Karishad and NogitsuneGabe! :D

If Kari really is a future kitsune then Tarot is lucky because she and Kari are actually best friends with each other in the artwork Rick draws of him. 8-)

Karishads shadow has multiple tails in the second panel, implying that he's a kitsune as well.

According to When Fox is a Thousand by Larissa Lai, they are ordinary foxes until they live for a hundred years and get their second tail. It's very difficult and unpleasant to live so long in an animal body, I assume they have to learn at least some magic because foxes normally live only a few years. Their second tail makes them young again so they can live 200 years, and so on. After living 1000 years they have nine tails.

When I first saw this I was confused about how the first two panels had framing like that, but now I see the simple solution that Tarot just walked a little more than a panel length and Karishad happens to still be in the same pose. When looking at the shadows more closely, I noticed they are projecting different directions for Great Kitsune than Karishad. When tracing lines from points on their shadow to points on their body, it seems they converge about chest level between them. Perhaps Tarot appreciates lighting a room with a good lamp (or candles).

I noticed Kari is also taller while he has more tail shadows. Compare the top of his head (minus ears) to the top of Kitsune's head, also minus ears. Then compare the difference between head hight from multiple-tail-shadow panel to single-tail-shadow panel. See how Kari's head is shorter when he doesn't have the multiple tail shadows?
