岩 石 ?? (Ganseki= Rock) Its the root of "Peter." If you physically fit the profile - great, if you are a willowy, reedy guy -- even better.

Seth was an egyptian trickster god.

The natural one for this is Kitsune 狐 -- the fox yokai.

Ganseki Kitsune. "Rock Fox." Probably sounds like an aboriginal manga character ...

The more appropriate trickster figure for Aikido, though, is Susano-o 須佐之男命, who made a sword out of the dragon's own tail. Probably over the top though ...
