So only 2 black characters in the game and they're both DLC?

Kat lives in a fictitious world with made up area's.. etc. I don't think she's black but mainly because the game has no focus on skin. That small detail is really not worth all these pages...

But I guess to add to the discussion of what if she actually had a race it would definitely be a mix of dark skin and pale (Ambigious.) My mother has dark skin, my father pale. In some shades of light I myself can appear white ( I even have that somewhat greenish hue she has) while in other shades I can appear tan.. I dunno if this post will help you all with confusion but I think all of it stems from how she appears in lighting.

Also I should add that all of you throwing the word black around for people who appear white need to check those people, they are not "Black" they're mixed. All to often many "black" people don't even know what kinda black person they are which is sad on their part, they should really learn their ancestry.

Oh man, this. Seriously, if I'm ever questioned about my ethnicity, I don't say I'm kinda black. I say I'm mixed, half black, half white :P

Anyways, the most I can say is Kat is kinda brown. She could be Hispanic, Indian, maybe a mixture of something...but who knows. To me it seems like an artistic choice, since a lot of people in the game are pretty much the same tone.

Not as much as you think, if you had seen my grandma back when she was still around you would think she's white, as far as all the different skin colors I've seen back when I was in school Kat would fit right in with the black girls.


How about this tan white girl?

Is she black too? Because here skin is darker than Kat's.

No it's not, she's a bit more brown then this lady, also the skin color on the left was the color of my grandma's skin, and the color on the right is around the color of the girl I know in real life, and both of them are black.

Don't really care, but the official response (from a Japanese only article I read from creator a while back). Someone literaly asked if she was black. They said she wasn't black and was drawn tanned to contrast with Raven who they made very pale.

Also they don't speak French, but French influenced the Heksvilian or what ever they called it. So you could say they are a imaginary race of distant french people XD.


Is there a link to that?

Uhhh yeah it is.
Here, allow the color-pick tool in Gimp to prove you wrong:

That shows the tan white girl and Kat's skin tones right next to each other. The tan white girl has blatantly darker skin.

Yes please, in the end I don't care if she is, or isn't black, it's just the fact that too some if you're not the right color of darkness to them you're not black, which is not how this works.

How about this? Why can't we just say that Kat is Kat? She's from a fictional universe where our nationalities may not necessarily apply. Her having darker skin may not mean anything to the people of that universe. Also, I don't think Kat's nationality has ever been stated by the creative team.

Kat is Kat, leave it at that.


i like this answer :)
