Kiryos was born in a noble family who, though not very wealthy, had a strong influence in the NOS-controlled world. During his childhood Kiryos tended to be a loner due to other kids considering him "a witch's son". He had no friends before one boy, Reiga, decided to hang out with him. Their parents also were old acquaintances, and the boys quickly became friends and shared the dreams of a world without violence and suffering.
In Military Academy Kiryos was Reiga's senior and a member of the Student Council. He was one of their main representatives at important events due to his elite status. He enjoyed his lifestyle of wealthy yet responsible young nobleman. However, everything changed when Kiryos was taken away from his family to become an assassin due to a deal made by his parents with the NOS, so he was forced to lead a dual life - that of a nobleman and that of an assassin. In several years he was trained in the art of assassination and gained exceptional survival skills, though he had to endure horrible tortures in order to be prepared for physical and mental attacks.
After his training was over and he graduated, Kiryos was allowed to return to his family. His family was rejoiced to see him alive, and so his mother granted him a family heirloom - twin straight blades, the name of which was lost to the history, that were passed down from the ancient times. The legend said that not every man could use them in battle, only those who were worthy. As Kiryos took up the swords, the image of wolves appeared on the blades, so the assassin christened them "Geminus Lupis".
After that NOS often assigned him to eliminate those who posed a threat to their rule, allowing him to use a disguise of their official representative.

Kiryos comes across as cold, sarcastic and cynical due to his training as an assassin when he was tortured both physically and mentally in order to make him a brilliant killer. He is aloof and distant, preferring to focus on his mission in solitude rather than talk to the people. However, he possesses some communication skills he uses to gather information, using a rather sophisticated yet straightforward manner of speech, another necessity due to his elite status. On the battlefield the assassin always keeps his cool, staying focused even when his own life is danger. During his childhood Kiryos used to be more cheerful and kind than nowadays, however, he still has a softer side he shows only to his family and friends, especially to Reiga, his childhood acquaintance, and Akari. He has a unique code of honor, making him show respect even to the most hated opponents and preventing him from taking any innocent lives. If sacrifices can't be avoided, Kiryos can use the most unorthodox ways of doing his job to make sure civilians will survive.
Kiryos isn't interested in fame and glory, so he doesn't need people's attention or recognition to do his job. However, he has some professional pride in his mastery, so he takes comments with a grain of salt. It's very difficult to make him angry, but if his buttons are pushed, the Assassin combines his anger with his concentration to crush his opponent and make them take their words back.
While working with the others, Kiryos usually takes a more passive role, preferring to do his own job alone, but he can be willing to cooperate with others as long as they seem to be competent and can admit their mistakes. He has some sort of disdain towards arrogant people, but as long as they don't get in his way, he doesn't care about them.
Kiryos is a good-looking and tall slender man with a lean built, but he is also quite muscular. He has a long purple hair that is brushed down with bangs in front of his left eye, making his appearance somewhat feminine, and icy blue eyes. He can tie his hair into a low ponytail sometimes.
His attire consists of a jet black hooded long coat with a popped collar adorned with black fur, various silver designs and strips of metal on the shoulders and around the waist area, making him look aristocratic and intimidating at the same time. The interior lining is purple and the sleeves are rolled most of the time. It's held together by a slightly armored belt with a buckle in shape of the wolf's head and splits down below his waist. Underneath Kiryos wears a midnight blue shirt with a silver zipper and azure tribal designs. He also wears black fingerless gloves with purple patterns. Kiryos' pants are black and have several dark blue and purple markings. He wears elegant knee-high black leather boots with steel soles and silver buckles on the side.
On his days off he wears a snow-white military jacket with elegant silver pauldrons and various decorations, a white scarf and white full-finger gloves, while the rest of his attire remains the same.
