To the mundane world, Akihiro is known as an Executive Chief of Surgery in a local Seattle hospital. An accomplished surgeon in the medical field known for his cool head and professional detachment.
To the Fera, he is the Iron Lantern of the Jade Magistrates. A kitsune who takes pride in his Shinju origin and considers all laws, those of both kitsune and Beast Courts, as the highest authority. Yet despite his uptight demeanor, the Fera know whimsy and trickery are the way of the Gukutsushi. Is this face the facade? And that smirk that tugs at his lips from time to time, does his composure lapse while pondering mischief or is it part of his trickery? Where does the trickery end and the kitsune begin?
To those lost in his path of fog, he is their bright light. Whether he is the lighthouse that saves them from the tumultuous sea or the foxfire that leads them to the rocks is up to them.
In the Beast Courts, it may seem strange to see a Gaijin walking among the community. In truth, very few people know the complete story as to why Snow was welcomed into the Beast Courts instead of sent to the Sunset People. As a youth, she was adopted by one of the members of the Sept, and she was raised as kin until her Change.
