Kappa

A typical Kappa

General

Kappa are bipedal turtles with multiple eyes and beak-like jaws that serve the Sea Spirit Zhu Hanuku.

They tend to habitate near water (or locations that used to have water) and fitting with their preferred element all Kappa are hydromancers, i.e. conjurers of Water Magic.

Kappa are obviously inspired by the Kappa of Japanese mythology, which are "water imps" that usually resemble turtles.

In game all Kappa are simply labeled "Kappa", but they vary in habitat, size, levels, skills, and drops. For easier identification in this wiki these different types are sometimes referred to by a sobriquet according to the type of Kappa Shell they drop:

Region Kappa
(Sobriquet)
Shell Type Level
Shing Jea Island Kappa "Hatchling" Kappa Hatchling Shell 1
Kappa Kappa Shell 6
"Elder" Kappa Elder Kappa Shell 10
Kaineng City "Ancient" Kappa Ancient Kappa Shell 20
Jade Sea "Archaic" Kappa Archaic Kappa Shell 23

The sobriquets (Hatchling > Elder > Ancient > Archaic) imply that Kappas can reach great age (possibly in the hundreds or even thousands of years). Obviously their power (level) increases with their age.

Trivia

  • According to Sujun on Shing Jea Island, the collective noun for a group of Kappas is a pride and they are very fond of cucumbers.
