Similar to the original character in KI2, she wields two 'Ancient Blades' -- one named "Temperance" and the other "Vengeance" -- which she can use like boomerangs. Here are details on her unique combat style:
  • Her daggers are at the core of her offense and are used in all her punch-based normals
  • Each dagger can be thrown independently and quickly after rebounding off her opponent. If the opponent dodges them, she loses access to them, and all the moves associated with them become temporarily disabled until she retrieves them.
  • The daggers have magical properties and level up with consecutive hits, gaining new properties in the process. When fully leveled-up, they can be combined to form a homing projectile that is unblockable.
  • Losing the daggers in an engagement removes any hard-earned properties they might have had.
