Sekiro IS technically his name. "Wolf", or as the characters in-world pronounce it, "Ookami" (with a long O, not just one, which would refer to descendants of a god or dragon) is more of a title than an actual name. Owl is NOT Owl's name, his name is Ukonzaemon Usui. Wolf was never given a proper or true name, the Tengu (Isshin) was the very first person to give him a proper name, just the same as he did for the Sculptor, who he labeled as "Sekijou". Sekiro is his only PROPER name, "Wolf" is more of a placeholder than anything else. So yes, Sekiro is his name.

If the wiki itself states that he is mainly known as the wolf, along with 99% of the game calling him The Wolf of coruse, shouldn't he be referred to as "The Wolf" on all the pages he is mentioned? It'd be easy to make a page redirect for new players or people who don't own the game that assume he is normally called Sekiro, and it makes more sense logically.

So is his American voice. The voice acting in this game is solid, and on the bright side, you can actually understand the English VA. But then again, we all know the weebs wouldn't be able to jerk off to anything but Japanese, so here we are.

Hmm, something isn't right here. He's supposed to be "Immortal" or "undying", right? when he dies, he just respawned back in the nearest save point. So, why did his arm not grow back after he died the first time?

Immortality does not equal regeneration. Technically, you could cut his head and all his limbs and he'll still be "alive" but be unable to move or do anything, I guess.

In dungeons and dragons the spell "resurrection" specifically states it does not restore lost limbs. I know it's outside lore to this, but made sense to me, as another said. It would be terrible if Sekiro became Potato and resurrected with no appendages.

Why is the japanese form of the names "Sekiro" and "Wolf" writen in katakana? That's the alphabet used in japanese to refer to outside and western words. Sekiro in japanese is written with the kanjis "隻狼" or hiragana "せきろ" and Wolf is "狼" or "おおかみ", although this word can be pronounced "ro" if it is used alongside another kanji (onyomi and kunyomi readings), that's why this kanji is read "Ro" when alongside Sekiwan "隻" or "せきわん", meaning a part of a pair. Just supress the "wan and you have the name Sekiro.

"If I recall correctly, Katakana wasn't created for the sole purpose for foreign words. It was pretty much used as a simplified writing system for Japanese." If I too recall correctly, you are right. But the problem here is that this name have to be written with kanji right away. Why? Because those kanjis are RIGHT BEHIND THE "SEKIRO" IN THE TITLE OF THE GAME! (Capital letters not for angry at you, of course not, just a rant...)
