As she is a Korean fox, she hates it when she's referred to as a 'Kitsune', the Japanese word for fox, instead of a 'Kumiho', which is instead a Korean nine-tailed fox. Any members of the Foundation who asks what the difference between the two is usually asked what the difference is between a Cherokee Indian and New Delhi Indian. She also seems to hate members of the furry community, as on one occasion, she escaped and murdered over two-dozen people at a furry convention before being recaptured. As she is a fox, she hates dogs, but in a different way to being referred to as a Kitsune. Any dogs, especially bloodhounds and other hunting dogs, scare her, making this one of the most effective ways the Foundation have kept her contained.
