Ran Yakumo (八雲 藍, Yakumo Ran) is an unknown shikigami created by Yukari Yakumo that has possessed the body of a nine-tailed kitsune as long as she has been seen. None of the kitsune's original consciousness has ever been stated to be present. She obtained the powers and abilities of this unnamed kitsune by possessing her. Kitsune grow one extra tail per 100 years that they live. The possessed kitsune's nine tails showcases her great power and experience and her approaching divinity. It is not shown how she was created, or how she possessed the kitsune, but she is a very powerful youkai, even capable of owning a shikigami of her own.
