Elegant markings of a single, solid color resembling kitsune masks, small horns, animals ears and (optional) tail which reflect one of 6 sub-types: Kitsune (Fox), Tanuki (Raccoon), Neko (Cat), Usagi (Rabbit), Shika (Deer/Faun), and Tengu (Crow). Hair and eyes can be any color. Faces are generally white or pale under the markings.
While most Obake have small horns, though size and color are random at birth, they always have the ears and tails of whatever type of Obake they are. They have kitsune mask marks on their faces which can be any one color. The markings vary from person to person and can be minimalistic or extreme, where the faces are usually pale or white from the remnants of the masks. Hair and eye color combinations are limitless, as they were not affected by the change.Click here to Read More
Obake are a race of magical humanoid creatures that resemble one of six separate “Kitsune Masks” that they believe they were tricked into fusing with by the God Puk in an event they refer to as the Great Trick. The six different types of Obake are Kitsune (fox), Tanuki (raccoon) and Neko (cat), Usagi (rabbit), Shika (deer/faun), and Tengu (crow). Their differences are purely cosmetic and subject to whatever mask their ancestors were wearing at the time of the Great Trick and passed on through bloodlines.
Many Obake strongly dislike Therians and consider them to be brutish and dirty while Obake are often considered to be snooty or arrogant. Despite thinking themselves above others, they also tend to be very forthcoming and hospitable (mostly to further prove that they are indeed, better than you.) While usually reserved in expressing their opinions, Obake tend to be very stubborn if they truly believe in something and are unmoving in discussions.
In Yomi’s (Origin of Obake) society, marriage is common and considered important to most people. Political leaders and upper class citizens frequently take multiple spouses in order to expand and continue family lines.
In general while the majority of Obake follow the emperor in their worshipping of Solace, some follow other deities. Festivals, however, are held very frequently and are considered extremely important to nearly all Obake. All citizens of Yomi partake in the numerous festivals that take place throughout the year and almost all Obake celebrate even away from Yomi. Special foods, drinks and Lorekeepers are made for the occasions and even masks identical to their own faces are used as a tribute to the Great Trick which most believe was a blessing as it brought them closer to Solace.
