Krysha Pendleton (キリシャ・ペンドルトン?), also known as White Cat (白猫 (しろねこ) , Shironeko?), is the second daughter of the esteemed and affluent Pendleton family. A fainthearted and shy girl, she is a playable character in Ys IX: Monstrum Nox.



Krysha is a petite young woman with gray hair and gray eyes. She wears a white beret hat, a pharlap-colored patterned dress with wide sleeves, a crossbody round bag, white gloves, and black patterned leggings.

As White Cat, she grows slightly taller, gets cat ears and a tail. Her now white hair is tied in a ponytail with a red ribbon and is covering one of her cyan eyes. She wears a one-sleeve jacket, a bycocket with a small cat paw pin, a neckerchief, kitten heels with cat paws under each sole, and black thigh highs.


Krysha is shy, meek, and wary of strangers. Despite that, she has a strong sense of responsibility, even if it makes her seem naive at times. Through her adventures with the Monstrums and the time she spent opening her own shop, she eventually builds up enough courage and confidence to stand up to her father.


Being adopted by the Pendleton family as a child, she later followed her sister in joining the company. While her talent as a merchant is comparable to Carla herself, Krysha struggles with following the family motto, which is to ruthlessly defeat any competition with capital gains. This has resulted in her developing a complex towards her reputed sister and creating distance between the two.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox[]

Somebody has recently broken in the Pendleton company and stole the sales that Krysha had personally earned. Adol offers to investigate in exchange for information on Balduq's prison.

It is revealed that the culprit is none other than Krysha herself as her Monstrum persona, White Cat, a chivalrous thief who steals money and goods from the rich to give out to those in need, living in Shantytown. She communicates with the city's residents frequently, and shows off around the city with her nimble and flashy performances. Utilizing her flexible, cat-like body, she specializes in speedy strike attacks.

After she finds out that her chivalrous acts in the slum has made some of the people become lazy and take her kind acts as matter of fact, she stops sharing her money with the people in slum. Instead, she opens a flower shop in the slum and decides to make the slum a better place rather than passively handing out money.

I have a resolution. From now on, I will not lean on power from others. Even if I don't have the enormous resources, I will strive ahead with my own power! ~ Krysha Pendleton

Later in the game, it is revealed that she, along with all other Monstrums are homunculi created by Zola to fight the Grimwald Nox with Aprilis. They were originally planned to be raised and trained by Aprilis and Zola, but when Zola disappeared, Aprilis found the job too difficult to be done by herself. So she faked their identities and pretended they were war orphans to be adopted. When they became old enough to join the fight in the Grimwald Nox, she sought them out and activated their power by shooting them with an alchemy bullet, turning them into Monstrums.
