Takata Steelblade is a level 40 quest giver located in Ghost Walker Post in the contested territory of Desolace. He is the head of the regional effort to counter the general demonic threat wherever possible. Both Takata and Maurin Bonesplitter were sent to Desolace by Keldran to ensure that the Burning Blade is dealt with as swiftly as possible. Acting on the orders from Keldran, Takata is chiefly noted for the massacre of the satyr population of Desolace due to their affiliation with the Burning Blade. At the same time, Maurin Bonesplitter concentrated almost exclusively on dealing specifically with the Burning Blade, although his efforts have been largely unsuccessful.
Due to his Japanese-sounding name and his sword, he may be intended to be a blademaster.
