Katana/Lore

From PHIGHTING! Wiki
(Redirected from ???/Lore)

Background

Katana is a Phighter from Thieves' Den. Formerly from Lost Temple, he was affiliated with the Church of the TRUE EYE and later defected.[2] His ultimate goal is to slay the corruption.

Timeline

Appearance

Katana wears a porcelain[3] mask, fully covering his face until halfway through his scalp with eye slits reminiscent of an owl. The mask is held in place by a red strap across the back of the head. A graphic of the Thieves' Den logo is on the forehead and the area between the eye slits. A smaller set of wooden[4] tusks juts from the lower jaw, ostensibly being a part of the mask rather than his jaw. He also sports a haori-jacket fusion, but with his chest more revealed. He has a rope that ties his outfit together at the waist. On his lower body, he wears kyahan, paddings on his legs with laces that tie them. His footwear is a pair of geta — traditional wooden slippers worn by samurai. His weapon is a large katana with glowing markings.

His horns are that of a bull's. Protruding out from the side of his head then curving forward and upwards; tapering into sharp points.

Personality

Lore

Interactions

Hyperlaser

Hyperlaser and Katana are seen to be particularly friendly towards eachother despite their stoic natures, in fact, it has been confirmed that they are friends and drinking buddies.[5]

Shuriken, Slingshot, and Vine Staff

These three demons consider themselves a friend of Katana, but Katana does not consider himself friends with them.[6]

The Broker

The Broker considers him a traitor for leaving the Church and wishes to kill him.

Scythe

Scythe and Katana have known each other in the past. Despite Katana's threats of killing her, Scythe replies by quoting, "How violent! It's funny how some things never change."

Scythe tries to persuade Katana to rejoin the cult again but Katana refuses with the prospect of "bowing down to that monster".

On one occasion, they seem to share silence with each other. This is the only dialogue in the game to be like so.

Trivia

  • Katana is neutral with everyone in the PHIGHTING! universe.[6]
  • Katana's mask was inspired by the hannya, a mask used in classic Japanese theater representing jealous female demons.
    • Katana's orignal design had more owl motifs, but it was ultimately scrapped by Soda except for the mask.[7]
  • His favorite alcoholic drink is sake.[8]
