    Good question.
    The word ghost is most prominently used in Visage's lore, to describe the ghostly substance occupying his rocky body.

    Then let's form the definition that a ghost is the unbound spirit of a character that has not yet passed on to the Underscape.

    It's not about my definition of a ghost. It's about the definition of the game about a ghost, and seems pretty clear for me.

    If Kunkka's a ghost, why can't he walk through walls? Checkmate, atheists.

    I don't think he's a ghost. Maybe he just survived and now seek revenge. That's why Tidehunter says "I thought I left you at the bottom of the sea" but seems that didn't happen after all.

    I don't want to believe he's a ghost. I imagine him that he might be saved/rescued by his old-time ancestors that sank in the incident of "The Summoning Sea" (It's my own fantasy thought that they might be his ancestors.) and then he retrieved the ghostly power of his ancestors or maybe from his old fleet that sank into the bottom of the sea, as Tidehunter mention.

    And yeah! as 1337_n00b mentioned about the set's lore about Kunkka and the Keen crew, I like that story a lot http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/f.../?id=163241044
    And this set is my favorite set too. As he set afoot on the shore, back to his old country Claddish,dragging a tentacle ripped from Maelrawn the Tentacular.

    (P.S.- Sorry for my poor English)

    I don't think we did.

    Kunkka's backstory is sort of told through the items - some of the sets mention that after whatever happened, he got washed up on Keen shores and now actually commands several ships with a Keen crew, at least he used to. It is almost as if the sea spat him back out... only we don't know just what the flying faff really happened there. Did he just manage to miraculously survive in the chaos and the wreckage and happily sail away on a plank? Did the Cataract daemons have a hand in this (daemons love portals)? Does Maelrawn himself have a plan? Or is there even more to his survival, was he brought back to life by some forces? Or, lastly, is he just a new brand of ghost - new and improved, now 100% less transparent?

    We can not be sure, but after having thought of this, I'm becoming doubtful of my decision to definitely call him a ghost in the sticky thread. Hm.
