As well as the narrative aspects of this Origin, Animals Spirits get bonuses from their personality (called Attitudes) since they are more driven by their passions than what they learn in their professions.

Magic Fan of the Wind:
I recently came across this film from 2013, The Fox Lover, which is all about a small family of Fox Spirits (or Fox fairies as the translation calls them). More a whimsical and romantic tale than martial arts action blockbuster (although it does have its moments), this tale really shows the sort of personal dilemmas that you can build into a game of Monkey.
