Your Score: Tengu


You scored 11 in Malice and 22 in Chaos!


Tengu are birdlike demons which inhabit the woodlands and mountains. They come in two classes: Higher tengu and lower tengu. Higher tengu occupy their own kingdoms which mirror those of humans; they dress in fancy clothes, beautiful silks, and wear jewelry and crowns. Lower tengu are little more than bird/human hybrids who flit from tree to tree and serve the higher tengu. Both higher and lower tengu have red faces and long noses.

Tengu are very mischievous creatures who love to torment humans-- not out of cruelty, but because they find practical jokes amusing. They often interrupt those who take their work seriously in media res by swooping down and hanging their 'victims' on tree limbs by their pants. They have a very strange sense of humor. At times, however, they can overstep the boundaries of good taste and cause genuine harm, as in cases where they kidnap and traumatize children.

Tengu are also fierce warriors and highly skilled archers and hunters; they will gladly take any worthy humans as disciples and train them to be good rulers and soldiers. They will also teach supernatural arts to priests, although at a cost; those who use these newly acquired supernatural powers for their own benefit become tengu themselves.

Very cool; there were two Tengu brothers in the last story arc of Yami no Matsuei (it starts in volume 9, I think) that were very interesting. I would have liked to have learned more about them, but seeing as Matsushita didn't even finish the story arc . . .

As for myself, I apparently belong with Kurama:

You scored 14 in Malice and 28 in Chaos!

You are the Kitsune, or "Fox demon," the ultimate doer of mischief. Kitsune belong to a class of demons known as "Henge," or animal shape-shifters, along with the Tanuki, or badger-demon. They are uncanny creatures who are notorious as much for their malevolence as for their wild and unpredictable behavior; a fox demon may help a human, only to betray him in deepest consequence at a later date. Kitsune are known to frequently possess women or pose as humans, causing chaos and catastrophe where ever they go. They are mischievous creatures who take great pleasure in playing terrible tricks on unsuspecting mortals; however, this behavior indicates that they are more perversely playful and apathetic to human suffering than genuinely evil and desirous of harm.


(I don't really have a Japanese demon type that I identify with, though to be fair, I also haven't studied that much Japanese mythology. I found myself beginning to answer the questions like dev instead of myself because the options I wanted weren't available, but the Hiei side of my is a little miffed.)

(I loved [and chose] the spatula option, too; it's definitely something dev would do.)
