Appearance

Summer Portrait
Aurora's ethnicity and age is hard to pin down when you first look at her. She is a Japanese/British-Romani/Egyptian arctic fox. Her eyes have a slight Japanese shape but her skin tone is a shade too dark. She is short like her mother, but a bit more curvy. Her eyes hold both a violet center and a warm-brown hue to them that seems to sparkle of curiosity. She only recently earned her second tail and is still a kit in the eyes of many members of Kitsune society; yet some of her younger half-siblings have been known to call her "Granny" behind her back.

During the dark half of the year (winter) her Sambuhenge, Koto, Juko and Kyubi fur coat is pure white, then around the Spring to Fall Equinox they shift to her summer coat of browns and tan with only the fur in her ears and snout remaining white. This is also reflected in her homid hair color as well, it shifts from a platinum silvery-white to chestnut brown with the seasons.





Biography

Winter 1947 Her name is Aurora “Kiriko” Lightfoot, an arctic fox born on the outskirts of the Tofukuji temple in Kyoto, Japan during the winter solstice on December 22nd 1947. Her mother, Jade “Joyous Laughter” Lightfoot, met Aurora's father in the early spring of 1947. Darren was sixteen or seventeen at the time and they only knew each other for a few days while his family was visiting the area during a family vacation. They had one photograph taken of the two of them near the Fushimi Inari Shrine, where she worked at the time as a temple priestess. Jade left her home prior to her daughter’s birth after becoming involved with a scandal within the Beast Courts that not only tarnished her honor, but also made a few too many enemies in the process. She and her half-sister Kumiko, made the journey North where she gave birth in seclusion.

As is the Kitsune curse, one parent must perish during their birth. Her mother died during a very difficult delivery but before her passing named her daughter Aurora, after the incredibly bright Northern Lights that were seen that night. She entrusted Kumiko to raise her as her own daughter and travel with her back to the family burrow with the rest of the family.

Year of Her First Change: Snow Festival, 1968 Aurora had undergone her first change into the arctic fox she is today at twenty-one years old during the annual Sapporo Snow Festival in early to mid-February. Her grandmother Sarah "Clean Plate" Romanov led the Rite of the Crossroads and named her “Kiriko-Girl of the Mist”. From then on, until 2010, she stayed with Sarah and her family until leaving for the United States with her adopted mother Kumiko.

2013 Aurora’s arrival to Omaha, Nebraska would eventually serve multiple purposes. First, she followed her mentor and adopted mother, Kumiko, and her pack here to see the Caern on Wyld Island in the Missouri River created. In the fall of 2014, she left briefly to complete her Masters degree in Forensic Science at George Washington University in Washington, DC. It was during this time that she resumed using the name Aurora Lightfoot more frequently when not in the company of family. After completing her Masters she returned to the Omaha area in February 2017 to resume her studies with Kumiko and learning that she had several half-siblings that have decided to call Omaha home in her absence.

For the shifter community she is a known private investigator who works efficiently and discreetly; and being one of the ageless, knows firsthand the need some members have in creating aliases that pass the scrutiny of these modern times.


Children of Alnilam

A family of fera, garou and kinfolk related through their father, Alnilam Sama'at, who was a lost kinfolk. They first discovered their lineage through genetic heritage testing from ancestry.com. Eager to find out more about their father and half-siblings they made contact with one another. The more they find out, the more keenly aware they are to the possibility that there are potentially other relatives out there that could be fera, garou or kin. They have collectively called him "Gaia's Whore". Each member of the family has a violet center to their eyes due to central heterochromia. Central heterochromia is an eye condition where there are two colors in the same iris; the central (pupillary) zone of the iris is a different color than the mid-peripheral (ciliary) zone, with the true iris color being the outer color.
