"Magic tricks are all about skill and illusion, but more importantly, they were designed as psychological weapons. So putting a fatal twist on my tricks is as easy as slitting a throat."
— Knell Hoga

Knell enjoys toying with those weaker than him by utilizing both his Card Magic and Illusion Magic to create a malicious and traumatizing illusion, as a psychological game to his advantage.
