A Society Fractured (P8)
Enchanting Lady Killer
If he’s not lounging about enticing scores in the Ship’s brothel, this tall, silver haired man is often seen wondering the ship, playing games or striking up conversation, and occasionally hitting on his ship mates. He can be also sometimes be found in the training area, working on his physique while checking out the buff warriors. Off the ship, he usually appears as a handsome, smooth faced human male with a strong jaw, grey piercing eyes, and athletic body. On the ship and not on the job, he freely reveals his true form of a tall fox-man, with a silver-grey over coat, cream white undercoat, charcoal arms and feet. He appears much the same as his human self, but vastly more exotic and intimidating. Proud of his appearance to the point of being slightly narcissistic, he conceals it mostly for the dramatic reveal, though looking human does help blending with the crowd should a hasty retreat be necessary.

Born in Andoran, Sōsuke Yukimaru was the bastard child of a human male consort and high ranking Kitsune official. His mother’s shame led to Sōsuke being abandoned shortly after birth, as he seemed for all purposes to be fully human. Taken up by an old traveling Human Merchant and retired wizard who felt sorry for the orphan, he was rescued from a tedious life at the orphanage to travel the roads in a small merchant caravan. Hailing from beyond the River Kingdoms, the Merchant picked up a small band of humans, dwarves, and kobolds traveling through Oremyr. When Sōsuke reached thirteen, his kitsune self finally emerged. Confused, the wizard helped Sōsuke to accept his true identity, and to control his powers as few had done before, in becoming an Arcanist.
When Sōsuke reached adulthood, the Wizard decided to settle down to rest his old bones, and opened a small shop in Falcon’s hallow. Sōsuke, however, had developed quite the sexual appetite moving town to town, seducing local lasses and lads with his gregarious charms and enchanting magic. Deciding to continue his adventures on his own, Sōsuke struck out with his adopted father’s blessing. Finding moving on his own rather more difficult then he was accustomed to, Sōsuke happened upon Ferrum’s Reach, and decided to join up. Not only can he travel port to port living his dream, but with his abilities and unique foxy features, he can get paid quite well for it as well in the ships Brothel!
Sōsuke’s true father, as well as true identity is dragon-mage Kasirith Winterbourne. Kasirith selected and seduced a powerful Kitsune sorceress to mother a vessel to house a section of his soul. Later, he disguised himself as an old wizard to look over and teach the child. Sōsuke. No one aside from him knows this truth, in order to protect him. So long as both remain alive, Sōsuke will remain ignorant of this truth, and allowed to live his own life.
