13th Age is such a cool game and I hadn't realized how much support it's garnered over the last couple of years. I'm tempted to pick up 13 True Ways and 13th Age Bestiary now.
Pending input from shnookums, this is the reworked character.

I am a performer in a cosmic play for the entertainment of the foxes of Oinari, amoral tricksters and sometimes allies of humanity. I must act according to their impish whims.Icons:Prince of Shadows (1 point, Ambiguous Positive)
During her priesthood in Santa Cora, Missy offered discreet aid to the Thieves' Guild when they needed a foot in the door, a safe place to hide, and a healer who tells no tales. In exchange for being on good terms with Highway bandits (which doesn't necessarily mean she's never been robbed- just that they're polite about it), Missy is sometimes called on as a reluctant ally of the Guild.High Druid (1 point, Ambiguous Conflicted)
As a messenger of Oinari, Missy has long walked the fringe between civilization and the wild, a true friend to neither. Helping small communities to harness and live in relative harmony with nature has made her some enemies among the High Druid's more extremist agents.The High King (1 point, Ambiguous Negative)
Centuries ago, the stories say, a kitsune became the queen of a previous High King and led him to his downfall. This mischievous demon continued to plague the courts of the Midgard until she was discovered and driven into the swamp. Missy is both a blood relative of this storied kitsune and a minor criminal in her own right, guilty of tax evasion, aiding bandits, trespass, lèse-majesté, and obscenity.Backgrounds:Oinari's Messenger 5
(Oinari's Messenger is a renaming of the ranger talent Tracker)
Missy is a traveling priestess for Oinari, god(dess) of agriculture, fertility, swordsmiths, traveling merchants, and progenitor of the kitsune from whom Missy draws her demonic heritage. Messengers of Oinari serve as wilderness guides and aid communities with animal husbandry, childbirth, hunting small game, and farming. They are less at home in the deep wilds of the world, far from civilization.Highwaywoman 5
(Highwaywoman is a renaming of the rogue talent Thief)
Laying low along the roads of Midgard, finding boltholes and charming kindness from strangers, Missy has lived as a romantic bandit, supping at the teat of civilization while enjoying the freedom of the wilds. A highwaywoman hides in the shrubs and the stable eaves, enters the inn under dead of night for a breakfast egg, and knows well the banners of the road patrols and which have the good sense to take a bribe.Traveling Merchant 3
Touring wares across the small towns of Midgard's trade routes, Missy accumulated a working knowledge of supply and demand, economics, and the habits of the Highway bandits while meeting more rural people than she could ever possibly remember.Noh Performer 3
Performers of the folk Noh tradition are trained to portray emotion while wearing masks, becoming masters of nuance and body language. Memorization of the codified Noh plays has lent Missy a colloquial knowledge of the spirits, gods, and history depicted in its 250 stories.Blesser of Boats 2
Missy became one of many priestesses in Santa Cora to bless fishing boats, both at christening and at each launch. She knows how to give blessings, and has superficial knowledge of fishing vessels and their captains. Used as a special power, Missy may bless a journey with unusual speed, with shrouded secrecy, or with providence of the land (but only one at a time).Racial Trait:
Double Melee Attack
Your weapon damage die drops one notch. In exchange, make a second attack when the attack roll is even.

Marbles, chicken feathers, sneezing dust, itching powder, and a hundred other minor annoyances.And a fox named Lucky. Bio"No, no! That isn't how the story should go,"
came the complaint from an audience of spirit-foxes.
Missy paused her performance, and took off her mask. "But this is a true story, based on real events.""Make it more exciting,"
yipped one of the foxes of Oinari. "There should be two kitsune this time,"
another recommended. "I would like there to be a boat."
All nodded in unison that this was what the story was missing.
"Very well." Missy donned her Noh mask over a growing smile, and began the tale again:
"Once upon a time, there was a brave kitsune girl who lived in the land of Midgard. All knew her coming from her flowing crimson mane, the joyous scamper of her little fox named Lucky, and the swords crossed over her hips. At the behest of the dread Lich King, she had boarded an extremely haunted ghost ship in search of adventure. What, you may ask, was a loyal servant of Oinari doing in the service of death? First, let me tell you of the companions who traveled with her..."
