Nixephox and Kitxenus by Cor-Draco Nixephox and Kitxenus by Cor-Draco
I made these two as I wanted to create the standard "attack, defend, magic" trio for Foxeia.

For their Others, I went with Asian - specifically Japanese - mythology (I know Land of Dragons was China, but I like Japanese myths, so sue me). Nixephox was a Phoenix, and Kitxenus was a Kitsune.

Nix is the defense type , due to the ability phoenixes had to heal with their tears, so I've given her Healing as an ability, and Kit is my magic type as Kitsune would give good luck to people who did them good, so Kit's ability is 'Luck'. Basically, she affects chance to create an aura of good luck around someone.

Their hairstyles are are influenced by what their Others' were. Kit only has 5 braids instead of 9 as I see her as being a teenage Kitsune when she lost her heart.

Her coloration is because Kitsune were said to be 'white fox spirits' so she's pale rather then tanned or ruddy complexioned. However, her forearms, hands, feet and calves are darker then the rest of her skin as foxes - including Kitsune if you look at traditional Japanese art depicting them - have darker fur on their lower legs

You will. Even though they won't be submitted to any clubs or anything, I'll keep drawing them - I'm really happy with their design.

This may well be the cleverest humanization of mythical creatures I've ever seen.

Not a problem. Your description of Kitxenus is even more ingenious than that one story I read-something about the Tails Doll seeking the Seven Chaos Emeralds to increase its power by adding more tails to itself or something...I can't quite remember the details for some reason...:icontailsdollplz:

Aww, thanks! I like the legends of the kitsune, and the way they thanked people for good deeds by granting them good luck I found interesting.

I always try to make my characters interesting but believable. I think I've managed that with this pair.

Well, I'd say you nailed it pretty well too. The least believeable part is that the Heartless managed to steal the hearts of a phoenix and a kitsune...

True, but then that suspension of belief is a somewhat core part of the FF and KH worlds.
