Adult rabbitsunes will some times sing to communicate with each other or even to communicate with humans. If asked nicely, and offered treats, a rabbitsune may be persuaded to perform for you and your guests. But beware, if the treats are not to your rabbitsune's liking, you may be treated to an earsplitting cacophony of sounds instead, your rabbitsune grinning from ear to ear bringing to mind the mischievous nature of their kitsune ancestors.
Rumours of the existence of rabbitsunes have persisted for many years but until now have never been proven, most having refused to even take these rumours as anything but drunken ramblings. That is, until Synara City hosted a grand music festival to kick off the solstice celebrations and the music attracted the rabbitsunes for all to see. This prompted an until now secret research group to publish their findings, sharing the wondrous details and speculations surrounding their origins. Some animals are better at handling food shortages than others and some go to great lengths to survive. The rabbitsunes fall into the latter category. They were once kitsunes, forced to eat various plants and berries due to a shortage of their usual chosen food, and this eventually prompted a powerful change in their bodies. They communicate through a range of sounds, the most remarkable a singing howl not unlike humans singing. This sound enables them to communicate over long distances. The constellation Lepus Minor appears in the northern skies during wintertime and is particularly bright around the winter solstice. It is believed that kitsunes that change into rabbitsunes under the influence of Lepus Minor will change into leporis rabbitsunes, whereas other rabbitsunes will mirror their kitsune ancestors. Perhaps, it is also this connection to the stars that gives them their powers. A rabbitsune's powers are not fully formed until they are about two years old. From then on they are able to use their five tails much like a compass, always aware of their current location and how to reach their destination.
