I am the fox that lies in wait...
... and I swear I will find you.

In mythology, Kumiho are depicted as being pure evil. They are unmistakeably painted as vicious, malignant creatures, seducing and killing humans so that they might eat their hearts and livers and thus steal their life force. This Kumiho is no exception, though she is usually very good at hiding her more, ah, bloodthirsty tendencies, unless it is directly in her interest to do otherwise.
Though terrifying, the most dangerous thing about a Kumiho is not the propensity to devour the organs of their victims, nor is it her ability to turn from a fox into a wide variety of shapes, the most notable of which being a temptingly beautiful young girl. No, the most frightening thing about Kumiho is her acting. She imitates humans flawlessly, perfecting their image to an art. Not even one's own mother can tell the difference from a Kumiho and her daughter, such is her skill. Kumiho is a master of possession and imitation, with the power to be quite literally anything.
Most frequently, she is loud. On a bad, or simply an average day, she can be known to speak with a tongue pulled from the gutter, tainted with crudities and turn-of-phrase vile enough to make grown men twitch to hear such language from a lady. At her worst--a state she often revisits, for amusement's sake--her manner is that of trash. Vivacious and assertive, she intrudes upon the space and privacy of others without a care, reacts with unnecessary aggression to the smallest of grievances. She might do this out of malice, frustration, or simply because she finds it fun at the time. Whichever the cause, it never fails to garner a reaction, so it's really no wonder why this is the persona she adopts most frequently.
That is only a fraction of her entire repertoire of persona, albeit. When the mood suits, Kumiho is elegant. Etiquette is an art, her body is grace personified, and her language turns to velvet slid from between silken lips. All the prose in the world could not suit to describe the lady the Kumiho can become, her beauty a novelty unknown to mortal women. In addition to that, she is also fond of acting as the huffy primadonna, the starry-eyed virtuoso, the flirtatious wildling, the innocent dove, the good-girl-gone-bad. She speaks in a variety of accents and languages, which she tends to mix and match at her leisure. There is absolutely nothing that she will not--or cannot, for that matter--emulate. Kumiho tries everything that strikes her fancy, and some things that don't if she is especially bored and in the mood to be vexed.
Kumiho is perpetually oversexed--not necessarily physically, but in her disposition. Seduction has been trained into her nature, now coming with the sweetest of ease. She hardly has to think about it, and though she would like to pretend that she is always in control of her mannerisms, sometimes it is purely accident that she engages someone sexually, having acted completely on instinct. Of course, then she has to eat their heart, just for consistency's sake, so it's not too much of an inconvenience.
Love is an emotion that is, to be blunt, beyond her. She doesn't take the world seriously enough--though it would be debated that one so evil would not even be capable of feeling such an emotion, serious or otherwise. Such a thing is hardly of consequence to her, however. The mortals can think as they like, and those thoughts may be the truth or they may not be. It hardly harms her, either way. She can form attachments of various natures, and does, though said connections are typically far from pure, or at all healthy. Most tend to be warped by selfishness or convenience, but camaraderie is what it is, and proves that she's not entirely heartless when it comes to others.
All of that being said, of all the things Kumiho has the power to be, there is one thing that she will never be, and that is the fox underneath the twisted façade, whose nature lies carefully locked away, protected by all else that makes up her fantabulous game of pretend.
