Hoshidan. An eminent kitsune with a powerful spirit. Wise and learned.

The Nine-Tails continues to capitalize on what the Kitsune was already good at. Faster Speed, better Resistance, better at being a mage killer. Even Better gives the Nine-Tails enhanced longevity, and Grisly Wound operates similarly to Poison Touch, except it works no matter who initiates the battle and so is a great way to whittle down enemies to weaken them further.

Combined with previously learned skills in the Kitsune class, the only real shame of the Nine-Tails is its exclusivity, and the inability to forge Beaststones. They are also a bit fragile Defense-wise.
