Ky Kiske is the deuteragonist of the Guilty Gear fighting games, originally hailing from France. With a strong sense of loyalty and justice, he is a former commander of the Holy Order, who led them to victory during the war against the Gears. His sense of honour leaves him somewhat prudish though, as he tends to get flustered when fighting characters like Jam. Ky's strong sense of morality frequently puts him at odds with Sol Badguy, leaving the two as rivals to the end. His life policy is to either be just, or be dead.
In Guilty Gear 2, Ky has greatly mellowed and matured. Now the king of Illyria, he entrusts the life of his son, Sin, to Sol.
