Agency 116

Kendra’s After-Action Report: Kumiho

Kumiho who was killing people in the city under the guise of a prostitute

Casualties during mission: None

Equipment damaged: None

Description of mission: Our team was sent out to investigate five killings in the city. Five men were discovered battered as if by blunt force and beaten, but the force to beat them so badly was beyond human strength. They all also had their livers removed and, judging by the scraps left behind, their livers were eaten.

We investigated each murder case by case, undercover as FBI agents; two of the men were found in their homes, two at motels, and one in the back seat of a car. Most of them had died in the evening, but one had died midday on his day off. Most of the men were in their 20s and 30s, with one student, who was supposedly getting ready for some sort of “initiation” or “big day”.

Short red hairs were discovered at each of the scenes, and what was left of the livers indicated that the bites were made with small, needle-like teeth.

We interviewed various people connected to each murder (family members, significant others, friends, employees of the motels on staff at the times of death, etc.) It was discovered that the city had a red-light district that the victims entered on the nights of their murders to enlist sexual services. One particular red-haired woman with changing hair lengths was seen by a few witnesses

Connecting the sexual aspects of each case with the descriptions of both the woman and the animal-like evidence left behind, we concluded that the culprit must be a kumiho, an evil Korean fox spirit that takes a human form, seduces people and eats their livers. (There are Chinese and Japanese versions of the kumiho that can be evil or good, but the Korean version that we encountered was one that is usually evil.) This particular kumiho was acting as a prostitute, and her hair sounded a lot like the fox-like fur discovered at the scenes.

We tracked her down and formulated a plan to either kill her or capture her, as per our instructions. In the evening, I was to solicit the kumiho and ask her back to the motel I was supposedly staying at. During the solicitation, I was guarded over by the more subtle members of our team, while the others waited at the motel room we had booked ahead of time. We would get her to the motel and take her down there.

The solicitation went down without a hitch, though she may have noticed Roy or one of the others on the way; this did not seem to stop her. Once she entered my room, I drew my gun on her. She punched me (almost incapacitating me, but I had kept my Kevlar vest on) and tried to flee but was gunned down by the others; it was at this point we called the agency, as she was only unconscious and was primed to be captured. I got medical attention and she was taken in.
