A kitsune-based toon. She first appeared in sumi-e paintings, and later in ukiyo-e prints during the 14th century. She was depicted in folk tales as a protector of the people, and as a priestess in later iterations. She has two tails and wears Shinto priestess garb in her standard appearance. Cartoon foxes are commonly seen following her, as are toon ghosts if she is within her temple.
She currently works as a priestess in the remains of Toon Town, putting spirits to rest. The temple she lives within appeared overnight, to the confusion of the residents in the area.
Ki is a very friendly and curious sort of toon, and enjoys the company of others. Clever and brave, even if she enjoys playing tricks on people. She'll show remorse if the victim of the trick seems upset, and try to make amends with them. Though she is mute, she emotes quite frequently.
Typical toon physics, toon ghost summoning and banishing
Style shift: She inherently knows the style of cartoon/media that someone finds most nostalgic and can transform into that style. If she is unable to have a fox-human form in the style, she will instead transform into a fox-only form.
