Additional Monster Info:

Special Attributes: Kami can perfectly imitate the voices of the deceased. They are very keen and cunning creatures, made wiser by the knowledge gained from their prey. The longer you converse with a Kami, the more spiritual essence and insight it gains from you. This makes its voice more authentic and convincing.

Characters with unresolved issues relating to lost loved ones are particularly susceptible to the Kami's voices. Discretion is advised.

-Kamisune can become intangible-meaning attacks pass straight through them.
(It is worthy of note that this ability does not apply to their spirit orbs)
-Kami can perfectly imitate the voices of deceased loved ones. Because of this, some people believe they can act as a medium-one that is actually speaking on behalf on the dead. Many travelers have met their end seeking closure with their loved one through a Kami.

- Stripping a Kami of a spirit orb destroys itís correlating tail, and weakens its power.
-Susceptible to holy magic as it is made of spiritual essence.

IF you kill a Kami by destroying all of its spirit orbs, you will not receive a Spirit Orb as a drop item. (Curse you logic!)

History: Kamisune were once prized pets among the Areans. Demons would raise them and train them to gather the souls they needed to survive. A Kamisune's spirit orb acts as a natural purifier for soul it contains. Meaning those privileged enough to consume one could go for months at a time before needing another meal.

Caelius once tried to relocate the entire species as the Kami were seen as essential to the Areanís survival. In an attempt to avoid Hellís Gate, they made the journey through Earthran territory.The move did not go as planned however, as members from both factions lost their lives to the deceitful allure of the Kamis voices.
The surviving Kami took up residency in Earthra, stalking the borders of both Ares and Caelius, reaping the benefits of occupying the middle grounds between the 3 warring nations.

Additional Thoughts:

Every monster I create has one terminal weakness, and a variety of ways to extort it. Hints are provided throughout the text. It is not necessary to know their weakness to destroy them-it just makes it faster/easier.

Please do not 'God-Mod' the monsters. If your character has never encountered one before, how exactly DOES he know so much about them? Use your characters innate attributes and abilities to your advantage :3

While I know its fun to play savior, it often makes for a fast showy mess where nobody else gets to play.
(That and its not fair for the monster. They have ravenous bloodthirsty feelings too ya' know?)

Please Enjoy,
and don't hesitate to present me with questions if any. I am happy to elaborate on any and all creatures I upload.

Hey could you draw one for me if I provide references (kind of; it's basically gonna be 2 images and you can combine them)?

Were you planning on using this creature for an encounter?
OuO I haven't created a SoC Bestiary in ages, and while I am definitely interested in what you have in mind, I don't want the design to go to waste~<3

No idea XD I ended up seeing some of your designs one day and thought they were really cool. (And I can't draw worth crap .-.)

What did u have in mind?
Kestrel-ShadowTalon Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014
Well like I said in one of my previous posts, I'd give you two screen shots and you could combine them how you like. 
ShadowOfSolace Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Student Digital Artist

I the colors on this one, especially because the way you colored it gives it a weird translucent look too it.
ShadowOfSolace Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Student Digital Artist
