OriginEdit

Bunbuku Chagama is a Japanese folktale involving a raccoon dog, or tanuki, and its attempts to use it shapeshifting powers to thank a helpful old man who released it from a trap. The tanuki returns to the poor man, transforms into a teakettle and requests to be sold. Bought by a monk, the tanuki becomes hurt when put over too hot a flame. It accidently sprouts legs from the pain and runs away back to the old man. As another plan, the tanuki decides the old man should set up a sideshow; that way, the man is brought out of poverty while the tanuki receives a friend and place to live.

EffectsEdit

Only affects those who perform kindly acts or are currently trying to pay back someone in appreciation. The user can transform into any object or animal they can clearly imagine and which will help them accomplish their goals. Being placed under physical stress or emotional anxiety and changing form can cause the user to be caught in some midway form between object and animal until they calm down.
