Kitsune Kirin is a bitter man. He is an important man—he brings much wealth to his tiny clan—but he is bitter. His uncle taught him that the value of a man comes from his individual deeds, not his station. He sees how the Great Clans treat those under them.

Kirin has also seen how the spirits treat mortals. When his brother died in Kitsuni Mori, his parents told him it was the will of the spirits.

Feelings about the Celestial Order aside, Kirin has succeeded as a merchant, and has become incredibly wealthy—wealth he uses to strengthen his clan and gain numerous allies.
