The Huli-jing thrive on the surface in the great forests or in urban environments. Stealthy, tall, agile, and slender they are considered a beautiful creature. They have a hierarchy in their homeland depending on how many tails you have 3, 6, or 9. Each Huli-jing obtains a new tail by gaining wisdom or by achieving goals in their long life span (near 650 years) and through a ritual performed once every 50 years. Nine tailed ones are extremely few and far between and are a stark white in color with solid red eyes. The six-tailed foxes, often commanders in battle are a reddish orange or brown or gray. The three tailed foxes are the lowliest of the foxes and are pure orange in color. The three-tailed are often young and ill tempered. They strive to be the best but their egos overshadow their ambitions so they become cut-purses and thieves. Huli-jing favor the thief as three tailed, the wandering swordsmen at six-tailed and the cosmosmancer or spirit talker at 9 tailed.
