  • Selkie are mythological water spirits that can remove their seal pelt to take on human form and walk on land, similar to the shapeshifting nature of her base class. The name was probably chosen due to its resemblance to the word "silky".
  • Kinu (絹) means "silk" in Japanese, and is also the name of a Japanese light cruiser.
  • Selkie shares her English voice actress, E.G. Daily, with Hinoka and Peri.
