Outline: A true prodigy, Ky showed great talent as a swordsman and was well-liked by the people around him. By the age of 16, he was promoted to the rank of Captain within the Sacred Order of Holy Knights. Although the Order was disbanded after the Crusades, he continued his life of public service by entering the International Police Force. There were numerous occasions when he clashed with Sol due to the difference between their ideals.

During this time, Ky truly believed that the ideal of justice encompasses all beings equally. However, during the Second Holy Order Selection Tournament, his encounter with Justice made him questioned [sic] his own unwavering belief in righteousness.

"I bring destruction on humankind to fulfill the purpose of my creation. That is my justice."

During the first Gear's final moment, her last words made him realize that his belief was heavily prejudiced by the convenience of humankind and made him questioned [sic] what true justice is.

Not long after the tournament's dramatic conclusion, rumors of a Gear named "Dizzy," who does not wish to harm humans, began to circulate. His encounter with Dizzy made him reevaluate his own iron-clad view of the world once again, and as time passed, they fell in love, and their son Sin was born. Through understanding love, Ky rose from being a leader who commands to a king who leads his country, gaining more popularity than ever before.

Personality: Ky is straightforwardly honest and sincere in all aspects of his life, including his work, relationships, and morals. A devout advocate of justice, his attitude toward helping the weak is exemplary, and some might find him too altruistic. On the other hand, he can be inflexible and excessively loathes anything that disturbs the rules and order.

Although his view has broadened ever since he assumed his position as the First King, there is still a naive side of him that causes him to act out of emotion.

Weight 128 lbs.
Blood Type AB
Eye Color Blue-green
Hobbies Collecting teacups
Values Dizzy, Sin, the happiness of others
Dislikes Those with weak hearts and minds
Affiliation United Kingdoms of Illyria (First King)

Outline: Ky has always been an ambitious and gifted young man. At 16 his swordsmanship earned him the post of Commander in the Holy Knights. Once the Crusades came to an end and the Order was disbanded, he took a position with Interpol to help restore peace across the world. His dogged pursuit of justice and order has brought him into conflict with Sol more than a few times.

During the Second Sacred Order of Holy Knights selection tournament Justice, the most powerful Gear on the planet, spoke to him and said "For my own preservation, I must bring destruction on humankind" which caused Ky to reconsider his own righteousness. That perhaps there was no single truth that governed everything was a significant blow to his identity.

Soon after the tournament's dramatic conclusion, rumors began to circulate of a Gear who chose to live in harmony with humans. Ky met this "Dizzy," and once again came face-to-face with something that challenged his formerly iron-clad view of the world. This time he fell in love, and before long they gave birth to a son: Sin. At the same time Ky became a king, and went from commanding soldiers to commanding an entire country. His popularity is never questioned.

Now he provides secret support to Sol, as the other man travels around the world confronting threats to all of humanity. At home, Ky must keep an eye on his political agenda, and avoid becoming ensnared by a tremendous conspiracy.

Personality: When he was younger, Ky was a zealous defender of justice and order above all. And although he was sincere in his convictions, he was also notoriously inflexible.

Since becoming king, however, his view has broadened significantly, and he has learned to see the world from the perspective of others. No matter how kind-hearted he is, though, once Ky gets angry he is prone to taking rash actions that betray his inexperience. Some doubt his abilities and think him unfit to rule, but many others adore him for displaying such human behavior.

During the Cradle Incident, he is shot through the heart by the Conclave's Axus. It is unclear how he survives the fatal wound, but the red glimmer in his eye resembles that of a Gear...

After being shot in the back with an ancient gunpowder weapon by Axus, one of the members of the Conclave, Ky somehow survived. How he did so is unclear, but afterward one of his eyes glowed red—the sign of a Gear.
