"You don't look very demon-y." Jade stated, confusion seeping into her voice, "I was expecting you to have more horns." Jasmine couldn't help but laugh.

Found here, Hoping for Peace is a Jackie Chan Adventures fanfic.

Tropes:

  • 0% Approval Rating: Nearly all the remaining demons have a fairly low opinion of Shendu and his siblings.
  • Adult Fear: Pointed out by Jasmine when Camille and Susumu stow away in her luggage.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ascended Extra: Agent Smith is a canon background Section 13 agent that gets an actual name and presence in the story.
  • Benevolent Boss: The Enforcers and Hak Foo are so loyal to Jasmine because, unlike their previous bosses, she doesn't treat them like crap, accepts responsibility for her errors instead of doing Never My Fault, and actually cares about them enough to jump off a cliff after Finn when he fell.
    • Finn also notes that Valmont (who Jasmine hates even though she's never personally met him) probably wouldn't have let him watch Frank while the boy's father was in the hospital for a minor procedure, while Jasmine did.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Jasmine quickly bonds with Jade due in part to her similarities with her own sister Camille, even taking her place in a dangerous duel. Later, she stands up to Agent Smith for the first time after she suggested that Camille be put on a leash after she accidentally bumped into the agent.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Jade.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Camille.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The Sasaki family hates humans but dislikes the Chronic Backstabbing Disorder of the demon sorcerers, so Jasmine believes that they aren't involved with the plot to try and free them.
  • Fantastic Racism:
      Advertisement:
    • Poor Jasmine... Her human half has caused her to be discriminated against by other demons, and her demon half means that several individuals in Section 13 (including Jackie for a while) don't trust her.
    • Inagumi are descended from Shikigami made from dogs subjected to Cold-Blooded Torture (Buried Alive up to their necks, food just out of reach, and killed via Off with His Head! right before they starved to death), and as such the Sasaki family of Inagumi tends to have a bit of a chip on their shoulder regarding humans.
      • A later chapter reveals that a significant number of demons at the compound boycott most modern human-made devices, like televisions, and even things like board games, and that the Sasaki family started the trend.
  • Food Theme Naming: Jasmine's mother chose the names of her daughters based on the types of tea she craved when pregnant with them.
  • Advertisement:
  • Good Hurts Evil: Jade uses the fact that the Pan-Ku Box didn't hurt Jasmine, despite lighting Shendu (who was in a human body at the time, as Finn points out) up like a Christmas tree, as a reason that she can trust her.
  • Half-Breed Discrimination: Outside of her own family and their allies and/or servants, Jasmine faces a lot of discrimination from human and demon alike.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Jasmine is half human half Kitsune, same for her sister Camille and her unborn sibling.
  • I Gave My Word: Kitsune in the fic, just like in folklore, are bound by their oaths.
  • Jerkass Realization: After Jasmine enters a duel to protect Jade, and being reminded that demons aren't the only ones capable of harming or destroying innocents to obtain their goals, or even make a buck, by the origins of the Inagumi, Jackie finally manages to realize what a jerk he was being to Jasmine because he let his previous experiences with demons like Shendu color his perceptions.
  • Mystical White Hair: Jasmine's natural hair color.
  • Never My Fault: Agent Smith tears into Jasmine for not putting up protective spells around the vault after Tarakudo's mask is stolen, but conveniently doesn't mention that no one else, including her or Captain Black, thought of it either.
  • No Medication for Me: Jasmine suffers from social anxiety and depression (made worse by childhood trauma, apparently primarily from the Half-Breed Discrimination she received as a child, including an incident when one of the servants was hit in the eye with a rock trying to defend her). Kitsune, in general, are rather susceptible to that kind of thing, but Jasmine is the only one in her family with any real mental health issues. She doesn't initially take her medication (at least while at Section 13) because she was afraid of seeming weak by admitting she needed its help, but Jackie and Section 13's Doctor Honda convince her to start taking them, after which she starts to show signs of improvement, even standing up to Agent Smith after she's rude to Camille.
  • Older Than They Look: Jasmine is 35, but looks to be about 10 years younger. Her mother Rin, thanks to the marriage ritual to Daisuke, also looks younger than she should, to the point that Jackie thinks that she barely looks old enough to be Camille's mother, let alone Jasmine's.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When JADE, who went up against Tarakudo himself, is scared, you know things are bad. Given the looks of the Shikigami attacking the Vault, it's hard to blame her.
  • Purple Eyes: Jasmine has magenta eyes.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Jasmine tells Agent Smith that the next time she catches her being rude to Camille and Susumu, she'll fill out a detailed report for Captain Black advising that he do this to her.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: Discussed by Jade when she notes that the tengu meeting them doesn't have the reported nose, with said tengu saying that it's possible that one of the early encounters with humans was possibly made by a tengu that did have the long nose, and humans started assuming that all tengu had noses like that.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Jasmine enchants a piece of jewelry to help Camille maintain her human form in public.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Agent Smith is a Section 13 member, but no one among the main cast seems to particularly like her very much, especially since she's a jerk who displays Fantastic Racism towards Jasmine (and later, Camille and Susumu).
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Both Camille and Susumu express disdain for placing emphasis on what someone is over who they are, an attitude Jasmine hopes they never outgrow.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Jasmine uses her magic to dye her hair purple because she likes the color.
