The character here is a relatively new addition to my regiment. I think she was created in November 2012, as well as this piece.
Katsumiyo, often called 'Sumi' (ink in Japanese) is a young female Kishu. Her nickname comes from the black blotches of pigmented fur in her head and tail area. Traditional Kishus are usually completely white, so this kind of coloration is a bit of an oddity. As an anthro her occupation is Oiran, a japanese high class courtesan slightly similar to Geisha. She's rather quiet and restrained yet very clever and well educated lady and knows how to manipulate others using her beauty and intelligence. She lives in late 19th century and gets well along with Masque.
