ShyRedFox Character in Game of Tomes | World Anvil


Amy Winters-Voss (a.k.a. Fox or Shy)

Being a house Seneschal to the great Badger King Darth Nikolas is the foremost priority for Fox.   Other duties she carries are Meles Librarian, and conniving plots to help with badger recruitment.

She stepped down from being a Brocktree guard in November of 2023 to make room for new guards and help provide stability for the house should one of its leaders fall. (The Brocktrees have traditionally been a royalty and seneshcal heavy group.)   She's proud to serve House Meles in any way she can.


Fox is also the Oyabun (clan head) of the Self Care Mafia


Previous duties

She's the former head of the now defunct House Kitsune and former Stinger Squadron guard in House Apis for Queen Bee Dani.



Isn't She a Human Author?

Fox spent most of her life as a human dabbling in things that interested her (from programming for a government contractor to textile arts to attempting to learn Japanese) while she and her husband raised their children. But now that the kids are grown, she's ready to scout places for fresh adventures with her beloved.


As she travels through time and space, she writes about the places and people she discovers. The most recent visit was to modern, mythical Japan, which resulted in her first urban fantasy novel. After crossing over into the spirit realm, she found herself transformed into a three-tailed kitsune and hasn't bothered to find out if she can revert to a human. Why mess with a good look?


What's with the weapons? I thought she was 'nice'...

When one travels the planes, one learns to defend themselves. There is no negotiating with a cranky hydra or a fire elemental with eternal hiccups. Fox knows from experience! Her handy blaster and trusty naginata are her weapons of choice. She's still working growing in her ki based magic style. But she can manage a strong shield in a pinch.


Why the little badger? And I thought foxes ate squirrels!

by AWV

Clawdia, a young European badger, follows most everyone in the Meles den around. But she first bonded with Fox. As Fox was making her way to the den after House Apis closed down, she found a baby badger that said she was lost and couldn't find her mother. The little tyke was hungry, so Fox took the badgerling under wing and fed her. Clawdia's favorite food is donuts. Lots of them.


Fox's squirrel companion is no mere rodent! It's an interdimensional portal creating beast she had to work for years to befriend in the plane of her friend Solar Cat. It took thousands of bags of acorns and a lot of chasing. They lost most of those acorns to the aforementioned fire elemental. (Don't ask about that incident. The gang still has nightmares about it.) Unfortunately, the squirrel can only return to where it buried an acorn. Fox has learned to booby-trap the acorns left behind as the group tries to return home.
