Jewel Maiden

Japanese - A fox-woman. She appeared first as Hoji, consort of the emperor, then as concubine to the emperor Toba and finally as the Jewel Maiden. She set out to destroy the imperial dynasty and nearly caused the death of the Mikado. A sorcerer frustrated her plans and she reverted to her fox-self and fled the country to inhabit the Death Stone. She was saved from her evil ways by the prayers of the priest, Genno. Also commonly called Jewel Maiden, Hoji or Hoji.
