silverfurredfox: (WORST DAY EVAR.)
Hideyoshi Akio grew up as a normal boy... all right, a normal kitsune youth, in school, with friends, taught by his parents to know wrong from right.  He had one friend of particular note, a boy of his age, human, who he had grown up with, that knew what he was.  They were as close as brothers.

Then, while they were still teenagers, tragedy struck when his friend was cut down as collateral damage in what looked to any average onlooker to be a gang war.  Akio, however, immediately noticed something off, and started investigating into the death of his close friend straight away.  He found out that it hadn't been due to a gang war at all, but rather, a dark organisation that kept to the shadows...

It wasn't long before this same organisation noticed him in return, and aimed for his life, since he already knew so much.  Instead of going on the run, he decided to alienate himself entirely from his old life by turning himself in, and offering himself up as an agent to the Organisation, professing to be both smart and capable.  

The Organisation allowed him in.

From that day onward, his life became a routine of research into dark and forbidden subjects, and assassinations that added the stench of death to his previously healthy, green scent.  But he would never forget just why it was that he had joined with them in the first place - first and foremost would always come his old friend, who hadn't even done anything to warrant their attention, and his need to see justice done for him.

In regards to Kudo Shinichi/Edogawa Conan, Gin - or Akio - is actually privately relieved that the toxin didn't kill him, as it means one less death that had to happen at his hands.  He does, however, feel that Conan often gets in the way of how he is used to doing things, as he has to improvise nearly every time the brat appears, and cover for him - even if it does mean that less people end up dying.

As for Shiho/Haibara, he's pretty torn.  On the one hand, she's still quite clearly petrified of him due to how he felt he needed to act toward her while they were in the Organisation together, as anything else would have put across a questionable image to their superiors.  On the other hand... he does actually care for and like her a great deal.  However, this includes - extremely reluctantly, and a cause of many depressive behaviours - letting go of her, for her own sake and happiness.
silverfurredfox: (Whut.)

Gin at work appears exactly the same as a canon Gin, in his black trenchcoat and fedora, and likely a dark coloured sweater.  Even to the evil look on his face.  Once he's 'off duty' so to speak, that's all thrown out of the window - he's more likely to be seen with his hair down, dressed in light pastel colours such as light greens or blues or earthy colours such as brown or beige.  His hair is early always let to fall straight down, unless he's at work in a garden, in which case it will be tied up into a ponytail.  If either caught off guard - relaxed, surprised, scared, tense - or if he's familiar and at ease in your company, then you might find him with his fox ears, and maybe tail also, showing.  They are both white with black tips, as shown in the icons.  His general demeanour off duty is laid back and easy-going.  His eyes also don't show quite so obviously the 'killer's gaze', since he is by nature a predator, and he prefers to keep work and home life separate.


His work takes him anywhere from Beika to anywhere in Japan, and it's even been known to have taken him outside of Japan, as well.

His home when not detained or kept at the Organisation's facilities, is an apartment he pays rent for.  It resides in Setagaya-ku, one of Tokyo's special wards.  It is rather close to - just around the block from - one of the local parks, although he does live in one of the higher floors.

The apartment itself is spacious, yet filled with greenery.  It has a balcony that looks down onto the nearby park.

Enhanced Senses:

As a kitsune, he has naturally enhanced hearing and smell, as well as vision to a lesser extent.  His strength is greater than the average human of his size and weight.  If he stretches it, he has a certain grace to his movements, but he tries not to let this show, as it could possibly lead to unwanted questions.

Kitsune Magic

The one 'power' that he has always had is the ability to shapeshift into the form of an albino fox.  In almost every way, this form looks like a normal wild fox - apart from the eyes, which are the same shade of green as Gin/Akio's own.  So far, at merely 35, he only has one tail both in this form and in his half-human 'Youkai' form, which is one that doesn't look much different from when he merely has his ears and tail out.  The scar he gained from Akai shooting at him still remains in this form, but unless one knows what to look for, it's barely visible under the fur.

His real strength is in plant magic.  He can cause plants - flowers, trees, anything green - to grow and  shape itself the way that he desires.  He can also tell exactly what is in anything that uses herbs or plants, be it lotions, potions, perfumes and other such things.  This is very useful when creating and detecting poisons, as well as figuring out where a thing may have come from.  He can also 'communicate' with the plant life to a certain extent.  He can't hold lengthy conversations, but really, what would plants normally talk about?

He can also cause wood that had been turned into things like furniture and statues to grow again, however this costs him more energy.   The same goes for natural fibres, such as cotton.

Kitsune fire (kitsune-bi) translates, in his case, to a sort of light ball that looks like it's made up of the sun's light.  He doesn't use it much, if at all.

Illusions are still a major part of his repertoire of tricks.  He can cause the world around him to appear different, cause himself to appear different, but generally these are mere optical illusions that must have physical help if they would have physical proofs.  For instance, in his world, the 'death' of Akai was an illusion... but at least a part of the explosion was real, or else Shuuichi would not have appeared hurt at all from the incident.  

Other, older kitsune are capable of stronger magic and likely a wider set of abilities, but since he neither works on it as a main occupation (apart from his plant affinity), nor is old enough to have gained any further tails, he hasn't yet reached the point of being able to use more advanced illusions and/or magics.

Other types of Japanese spirit magic can be used, but he generally doesn't bother with them unless he needs to.  If there is a problem with spirits, then he will go to a shrine and have those more qualified deal with the problem.  If it's something more simple, he is likely to do it himself, such as if he was inclined to make an omamori.

He prays to Inari, patron deity of kitsune and foxes.

  • Plant life, anything.  He's childish, a geek and a right dork when it comes to greenery of any kind.
  • Classical music.  He prefers it over the other genres.  Depends on his mood for which kind/composer, though.
  • Being active.  Particularly, being able to let loose and just move how his body wants him to be able to.
  • Taking on his Fox form.  It's fun, and he doesn't have anyone expecting things of him while he's like that.
  • Not having to kill people.   
  • Inari sushi, Kitsune udon... and he will eat meat.  Just because he likes plants doesn't make him a vegetarian.
