Wakku is a lavaspring aquacat, a mammal that dwells in the lava-saturated waters of Karaz Island. He was released in-game with Episode 4 of Story Mode.
These creatures are often seen dipping in and out of waterfalls and rivers, both near grassy areas and in barren canyons.
Aquacats have translucent fins that extend from their tails, front legs, back, and head. These, along with their powerful muscles and thick hide, help them to swim swiftly through fast currents.
Their claws allow them to grip and climb rocks, and the whiskers around their face protect them from the volcanic debris that sometimes drifts from Mount Zaeka, the volcano on Karaz Island.
Additionally, their large ears are thought to help them sense more frequencies underwater so they can navigate the island and locate food more easily.
Aquacats mostly eat vegetation that grows along the riverbeds on Karaz Island. Their diet also consists of small fish — but they’re also known omnivores. Mischievous in nature, they love to play tricks and sometimes steal food from passersby.
- Items keep disappearing from the houses of people living on the river banks. Are the aquacats to blame?
- Pollution is running into the water habitats on Karaz Island, and the aquacats are leaving. Some of the Mages are determined to help!
