An adult foxfire skulk is still a small creature, though its five fiery tails can make it twice as long. Always alert to potential trouble, a skulk can often sense things before they happen, either through smell or through some other method that magi don't quite understand. Skulks almost never spend time within the Keep, even during the winter months, and are often out looking for lost people to help guide back to safety. They decorate themselves with green wreaths and poinsettia flowers, along with the bells strung around their necks. No one has ever seen a skulk without its decorations, but there are rumours that skulks cannot survive damage to their bells. Mysterious as they are, skulks are still highly respected amongst magi and regular people alike, and this respect is always mutual.

A relative of the kitsune, foxfire skulks are only seen in the north during the winter, around the time of the winter solstice. They often appear to travellers in order to guide them through the night or snowstorms, lighting the way with the ever-burning fire on the tips of each of their five tails. Many magi also hear their bells at night and are comforted by the sound, knowing that a skulk is nearby and watching over them. They tend to be shy creatures and can be easily spooked by loud noises and crowds, but for individuals and small groups, they're friendly and even playful. Most skulks are coloured either solid gold or solid silver, but magi have spotted them in other colours as well, though this is a rare occurrence.
