Chambara Villain Joker.
I'm doing a simpler presentation for the villains, I hope you all still like them!
Osaka is abuzz with talk about the recent spate of horrific murders. Apparently some maniac is killing people in the streets, wearing a grinning fox mask. Osaka's resident hero, Koumori Yasha, despite his considerable ninja brilliance, has been unable to catch the criminal as of yet.
This insane serial killer is none other than the famed actor, Izuna Ichibiri, or rather a fox demon who disguised himself as the kabuki player long ago when the real man was just beginning his career. The purely amoral creature kills for fun, conscienceless and purposeless. It has recently become fascinated with Osaka's dark defender, and hopes to draw him out. He's just so... serious!
Warai Kitsune uses the weird and dangerous kusari-gama, as well as fox magic and more conventional tricks and jokes. He is entirely unpredictable, and a major threat to Koumori Yasha's plan to make Osaka's streets safe again.
