Raccoon Dog in Japanese is 狸 which is read tanuki. The Japanese word tanuki translates as "raccoon dog" and is a single kanji word. The Tanuki of Japan is covered with legend and is said to be a mischievous creature. Sly and crafty people are called "tanuki". This idea inspired the design VD2A where I added small, evil horns.
