Trivia

Lore

  • KAY/O comes from an Alternate Timeline Earth where Radiants were enemies of humans and were being used as weapons.
    • "Humans allied with Radiants. What a strange world."
    • He may have arrived from his timeline using a specialized teleporter that took him back in time to Earth 1, arriving on board the destroyed Kingdom container ship "Meridian" at an island in the Atlantic Ocean.
  • KAY/O often uses military language:
    • 86'd: Referencing the US Uniform Code of Military Justice Article 86, which is about personnel who go Absent without Leave.
      • "Target 86'd."
    • Charlie Mike: NATO phonetic alphabet for CM, possibly meaning "Counter measures."
      • "Charlie Mike, let's move."
    • KIA: Killed In Action.
      • "Hostile KIA."
    • Tango: NATO phonetic alphabet for T, likely used by KAY/O as an alternative for "Target."
      • "Tango down!"
  • His name may stand for "Kill All Your Opponents."
    • "Kill All Your Opponents."
  • He was designed to eliminate Radiants and uses polarized radianite to suppress them[3].
  • He is a master at pool hall games[3].
  • His favorite type of music is 80's Synthwave[3].

Relations

  • Many of KAY/O's interactions with other agents are recollections about their Alternate Timeline counterparts:
    • He fought alongside Brimstone and Sova, possibly under Brimstone's command. He may have had a close bond with his Brimstone, as he expresses emotion upon seeing Earth 1 Brimstone.
      • "Brimstone, I'd hug you but it would kill you. I'm serious, no hugs."
      • "Your second chance, Brimstone. I won't fail you again."
      • "Side by side again, Sova. Let's get lethal."
    • He fought against Astra, Reyna, Sage, and Skye. He has confirmed he was able to kill the Reyna from his timeline.
      • "Their Astra doesn't protect reality, she destroys worlds. I would know."
      • "Another Reyna. I killed her in the war, I'll kill her again."
      • "It is strange, Sage. Where I'm from, you're no medic, only a weapon."
      • "I've seen what the enemy Skye becomes. Deal with her now. Trust me."
    • Despite being able to fulfill his purpose, the war came at a heavy cost, and KAY/O lost many allies.
      • "I won't lose you all again."
  • KAY/O has a close connection with Brimstone. KAY/O fights alongside him in his reveal trailer and both their personal cards shows them carrying someone in their arms.
    • One theory claims that KAY/O is carrying Brimstone and vice versa, though the cards could also be a throwback to their past activities when the two were on separate Earths.
    • Whatever the case, it has been confirmed that the similarities between the two are intentional[4].
  • KAY/O still shows bitterness towards other Reynas (even if they don't appear to be on a similar path) after what happened in his timeline.
    • "I'll destroy every Reyna for what she did to you-... correction, them."
    • "Reyna, I acknowledge your performance. Brimstone ordered me to."
