    I really want to take the time to go through Matty's site and document the given name of all of the accessories. (Given, some are quite generic, but some are quite nifty.)
    Um does that make it Ka-Ka?

    Who is Ka?

    Teela wields the staff of Ka. King Hsss, the shield of Ka.

    So.

    Who IS Ka?

    Is the a Snake Man? Is he an ally of King Grayskull? Is he a character from the Jungle Book?

    Do you think we will see a figure of him? Or is it a her?

    I'm inclined to think a god or great leader of the Snake Men. Perhaps a demi-god, even. I'd love a figure, but I would also be fine if we never found out. Adds a lot more mystery to the whole thing.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    If they make Ka into some sort of figure it should be heroic since the Goddess' attire is all about Ka.

    In my modest oppinion I think that the "name" Ka, used on MOTU, comes straight from the Egyptian Mythology, wich is a spiritual part of the soul, that survives after death....

    Okay, now I've got an image stuck in my head of King Hiss singing, "Trussst in me, jusssst in me..."

    Still, interesting question. Got to be a snake connection, thus likely a snakemen connection somewhere.

    Hmmm I wonder what would happen if the shield and staff came together?

    Perhaps he is the light side to Serpos's dark side. Actually is Serpos even part of MOTUC?

    And something else....if we ever DO get a figure of this Ka person...we would need a new staff or shield...depending on Ka's gender. The staff we have doesn't fit (securely) in a male hand, and the shield we will get next month won't fit on a female arm.

    Ka could be a snake god or goddess, which could help explain why The Goddess wore snake armor. If Teela carries the staff of Ka, I get the impression that Ka is good.

    King Hiss is an enemy of the heroic warriors, but unlike Skeletor and Hordak, he may not view himself as being evil. We have seen in MYP that King Hiss is good to his own people. Extremists tend to have a logic of their own, and it may be that King Hiss strayed from the original teachings of Ka, and views all non-snakemen as inferior.

    I like the whole "god" idea, but my version is that Ka was once a good being, until he slowly turned evil and eventually aided in the forming of the Snake-men (as a group, not the race itself), explaining why The Goddess has Ka armor and the Snake-Men have weapons and whatnot inspired by him. The Goddess continued to wield the armor since she believes that there is still good deep inside of Ka and has hopes that he will someday return to their side and aid the Masters.

    It's not in his bio, but it is in the figure description on Matty's site.

    Hmmmm.... Very interesting.....

    He or she had to be someone important. Perhaps a Snake Man elder or king/wizard of the ancient times when all different races in Eternia exists together in harmony. Way before the fighting and the hating. Had to be someone before Grayskull and his legends.

    Same thing with Saz I guess. Must be the original Elders of Eternia.

    Both Ka and Saz might be Trollans too. Just have to add it there!

    I'm surprised that everyone seems to automatically assume it was a person

    It could just as easily be a weapon from a certain area of Eternia (like "the Ka valley", "the Kingdom of Ka", etc). Kinda like when Evil-Lyn uses the Collar of ... thingy ... on Kevin in the 1987 movie.
    The collar of ... dammit, what is that thing? If I wasn't half asleep I'd break out the DVD right now.

    Either that, or it could be a certain belief or way. Like "the staff of Zen".

    ...I dunno, just tossing some alternative ideas out there!!

    I love that the question of 'Who is Ka' comes up on each page, LOL! (S)He must have the power to wipe our memories! Regardless, as I said earlier, here's my own notion of who Ka is / was:

    My own idea is that Ka was a powerful, evil queen of the Snake People before King Hsss' time. Ka was eventually defeated by the Goddess (who, in my canon, is Teela--after becoming the next Sorceress of Grayskull, she helped He-Man vanquish evil from Eternia and then went back in time for one reason or another), who claimed the queen's armaments as her own. Eventually, the Goddess and the Sorceress worked together to ensure that the Staff of Ka was passed along to present-day Teela as a means of combating the 'snake-spirit' unleashed by King Hsss' magic. As for the Shield of Ka, I guess the Goddess just missed it when gathering up her fallen foe's stuff, LOL!

    Wow, and I thought that the "Next time, use the search feature" comments sounded snarky. Thanks for proving me wrong!

    Oh no! I'm sorry, that wasn't my intention--I was just trying to poke fun at the fact that three or so threads have been rolled in to the same one, so the same question keeps popping up. I assure you, it was said in jest though I apologize for any misunderstanding--especially since I'm interested in the same question.

    Fair enough...and sorry if I misread!

    I just hadn't seen it brought up since the shield reveal...or at least not in the context of "Who is Ka?" in it's own thread.

    Great catch with the "Shield of Ka", Telkan! Suddenly that ruby red Staff of Ka from the weapons pack makes a lot more sense! I was at first content just thinking it was a classic repaint, but in retrospect, it matches the shield rather nicely!
