Because we feel it’s important: a public statement regarding coverage of Cagliostro in Granblue Fantasy and Granblue Fantasy Versus and our stand against derogatory language.
Due to the nature of Cagliostro’s design, it’s common to use the word ‘trap’ to describe how such characters leave snares, explosives, and other ‘traps’ on the screen. Similar characters to her include Byakuya (Under Night In-Birth) and Testament (Guilty Gear). Due to her circumstances, this can be misconstrued and misused as a transphobic term. We will do our best to minimize usage of it in our coverage and provide proper context each time. We also do not tolerate the use of transphobic slurs in our social media spaces, and will act as necessary when we see it.
