Octavia's Dagger is Octavia Ember's weapon of choice. It made its first appearance in "New Challengers...".

Description

Octavia's dagger resembles a kris, a type of dagger in Southeast Asia with a distinctive wavy blade. The hilt has a long, thin trigger running parallel to it, and red-orange markings run down the center of the blade, which indicates the use of Fire Dust in its design.

By making a slashing movement with her dagger, Octavia is capable of creating waves of flame. These attacks can also be used to kick up dirt in order to blind enemies.

In Before The Dawn Octavia is seen loading Gravity Dust into her weapon allowing her to access the Crown's hidden base with Sun and Velvet by creating a whirlpool from using the Dust and her Semblance.

Trivia

  • The weapon resembles several historical swords with zigzagging blades, including the Indonesian Kris, Filipino Kalis and European Flame-bladed sword.
    • The dagger features Fire Dust which could could be a reference to the latter.
