OK, I'm gonna wade in on this with some facts.

 

Using ethnic terms of our world to describe Kat doesn't really work since she's from a fantasy world where Japan and France don't exist. Even then, the European stylings of her world, coupled with her blonde hair, heavily suggest she's white with tan skin. Yes, you can be white with tan skin. Look at the Mediterranean countries - Spain, Italy, Greece - all tanned to hell, but still classed as "white".

 

And to those saying Kratos is black? No. He's Spartan, which essentially putting his ethnicity straight into the above Med category, and I'm surprised this is even debated. He's from Greece, so therefore tanned caucasian, meaning, OH YES, white. Yes, he was white even before the ashes got permanently fused to his skin. The sole thing that makes him black is his VA.

Technically, we don't know where exactly Kats initially from. She dropped from the sky, and has no memory of her past.

Well, this is true. Really, your comment earlier in the thread about her being an alien (and therefore outside our understanding of ethnicity) is probably the most accurate Smiley Tongue

 

But still, if you MUST assign an ethnicity, she's white in the render on the All-Stars page, she's white on the cover of Gravity Rush, she's white in the comic-book cutscenes of Gravity Rush, and then oddly tanned in GR's gameplay. Conclusion: more often than not, she looks white.

 

Or red...hm...

Shut the **bleep** up. Seriously. If anything Kat is Hispanic because she speaks Latin. Why are you trying to claim ethnicity on a video game character anyway? Get over it. Besides, what white **bleep** have you seen with dark skin? Her color is past what you can get from a tan, fool.

Another thing. Anyone can have blonde hair. If somewhere in your family pedigree theres blonde hair you can inherit the trait.

Hispanic is not a race.Black people and white people can speak latin,french,spanish,portuguese and italian too. There is just Black and White. Plus examples of Kat being black is that her skin colour compared to Raven is darker which means if the japanese animators wanted her white they could have.While her references seemed to be tanned to people who thinks like that, the japanese identify her as black and give many illustrations in her DLC costumes as dark skinned. Kratos is bi-chance black as well, since taken that some of the Greeks in ancient time have connection with africans, blacks have made up quite the minority in Greece. Mainly you should take a closer look on his daughter who seems to be Bi-racial.
