Adventures of an Adorable (And Slightly Bratty) Half-Kitsune Child

There's a small Japanese boy running around the bar and grounds. He's dressed in what used to be an adult's lined robe (that has obviously seen better days), altered down to fit him and tied with a sash. Underneath are a pair of baggy faded-black hakama tied at the ankles to keep the hems off the ground. Those with mystical senses will perceive a couple of dozen spirit wisps floating in the air around him. Even those who can't see the spirit wisps will definitely see the boy himself: he's the sort of child who has a knack for being loud and getting underfoot.

Depending on the day, you may find him in a number of different places engaging in a variety of activities:
  • In the bar, kicking around a blue-and-yellow soccer ball.
  • In the gardens, digging around for interesting rocks and bugs.
  • In the stables, jumping from the hayloft into the straw or singing to the animals residing there.
  • In the Caribbean inlet, building sandcastles and splashing in the shallows.
  • Back in the bar, drawing pictures with crayons and gorging on sweets.
  • At the trilobite tank, with his face pressed up against the glass.
  • By the fireplace, eating more sweets and engaging in staring contests with the fish.

Evening twilight will find him in the air temple, his little spirit wisps now visible as floating motes of light. He is dancing around and giggling, sending his spirit wisps into the bottles and making them sing like a glass harp.

[OOC: Feel free to find kid!Seimei in any of these places doing any of these things! Just FYI, he will not answer to (and will not recognize) the name Seimei - he goes by his childhood name of Dōji.]

A very pale little girl with a black dress and black braids approaches, rather silently, as Doji is standing at the trilobite tank.

"These are strange fish," she says, quietly, when she is standing right beside him.

"No," she says. "I saw a crab once, and it had pincers. These don't."

"Water bugs with funny eyes," she says. "And long horns."

"Possibly," she says, coming closer and peering at the creatures, not quite squashing her nose on the glass. "This might be their nursery, and when they grow bigger, they get taken back to the sea."

"And from there, the monsters swim out and become sea monsters," she says. "These people must be pirates and witches."

Which is apparently a cool thing to be.

"Mine, too!" she says, with a pointy-toothed giggle. "Shall we go have a look when it gets dark outside?"

"Yes, that is only fair," Margolotta says. "I can swear before the gods. Do you know how to get there?"

"I'm Margolotta Amaya Katerina Assumpta Crassina von Überwald," she says. "That's the short form; the long one takes four pages of writing."

She giggles. "Just says Margolotta."

Margolotta touches the wood of the bar. "I promise not to harm Dôji, if he doesn't harm me first."

So there!

"Because sunlight hurts vampires," she says.

"Yes," she says. "Much better than humans."
