"An ecclectic, dedicated scholar of spooks. Stalks pretty girls under the guise of doing field work. Loves clipping toenails for fun." – In-game BioGutten Kisling (shortened to Kisling in-game) is a scientific scholar and protagonist in Okage: Shadow King. He specializes in ghosts and supernatural phenomena.
"...Based on that theory, in order to establish a feasible hypothesis to plot empirical data we must...the retreating figure in the drizzling rain, on a dark and cold road and other metaphysical metaphors...bending time and reality! And there you have it!!" – Gutten KislingKisling is a scientist and an eccentric. He is supposedly capable of engaging in philosophical and metaphysical conversations with other scholars, although it mostly sounds like nonsense to everyone else.
But in spite of his scholastic pedigree, Kisling is known to creepily hound women in the name of science. While he is seen to be flirtatious at times, whether he actually abuses his scientific merit to harass women, or whether such things are simply misinterpretations of his odd behavior is unclear.
Kisling's claim to be a respected member of scientific society is surprisingly credible. He has been studying ghosts for many years, and his academic work has apparently been very valuable to other researchers in his field. He and his work are well known and highly regarded among the Madril researchers, for example.
Before he becomes a friend, Kisling is encountered blocking the way, muttering to himself in a combination of large technical terms and gibberish.
