|Affiliation(s)||Magic Kingdom Levianta |
Kiril Clockworker was a clockworker of the Magic Kingdom Levianta, the fiancé of Elluka Chirclatia, and the older brother of Irina. Created by Seth Twiright, Kiril became an artisan for the Clockworker Family. After Elluka cured him of his Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome, the two became engaged and lived happily together with Irina for a time.
Created around the BT 020s by Seth Twiright, Kiril became part of the Clockworker Family as a clockworker craftsman and lived in Lighwatch. Creating many devices, he gained fame as the "Clockworker". At some point, Kiril realized he suffered from Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome and began resisting his urges to commit malicious deeds against others. Later on, his family received a second ghoul child, Irina. As the girl grew up, she began assisting her brother in creating music boxes in his work.
Sometime during the first decade in the Evillious Calendar, he met the local priestess, Elluka Chirclatia, and he fell in love with her. After she discovered he was a HER, the priestess cured him of his symptoms. When Elluka was expelled from the temple for her misconduct, Kiril accepted her as his assistant and they began living together. After the two entered a romance for sometime, Kiril proposed to his beloved and the two became engaged. Afterward, to express his wish for a happy future for them all, he crafted a music box that played the Clockwork Lullaby's melody, which he gave as a gift to his fiancée and little sister.
Once Elluka and Irina were selected as two of the potential candidates for the seventh Project 'Ma' in EC 013, he gave Elluka his support for becoming Ma and the nation's new sovereign. At some point, he met the director of Project 'Ma', Seth Twiright. Noticing their resemblance, Seth claimed to be a ghoul child like him, convincing Kiril he was likewise freed of Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome and trying to save the country from the rampaging HERs through the project. Later on, Kiril witnessed Irina stab Elluka in the back. Devastated, he discovered she was a HER.
After Irina was accepted as a project despite the revelation she was a HER, Kiril began suspecting Seth and despaired over their loss. Around the same time, the music box he crafted broke, and the man secretly kept Elluka's corpse for himself. Kiril later attended the ceremony celebrating, hiding a knife beneath his cloak. As Irina presented herself as the new Queen before the public on the temple altar, the depressed man raised the knife in his hands.
About six months later, Kiril lamented the tragic situation he was in before noticing he heard a melody despite the music box being broken. Questioning where it came from, he realized it was Elluka's voice. The craftsman then asked his deceased love what to do and she told him to resurrect her with Sin and restore everything. Desperate, Kiril took Elluka's corpse and covertly carried her to the forbidden ark in the temple as the voice instructed.
He then cast the Clockwork Secret Art on the device to reverse its time and make it usable. As his beloved's voice hurried him to place her in the ark, Kiril did so. Immediately after, the Clockwork Secret Art faltered and the device went out of control, causing a massive explosion that destroyed the Magic Kingdom around them. Mortally injured, Kiril was left unconscious in the rubble when the dragon Levia-Behemo scooped him up in one of its mouths and flew out of the temple.
After the dragon destroyed the kingdom before falling apart, Kiril survived and remained in the ruins while continuing to work. Sometime later, while working with a dirty black box, a traveler came by and asked what he was making. He answered that it was a music box.
After the twin gods Levia and Behemo incarnated in Elluka's body, Levia's amnesic consciousness believed herself to be his beloved. Believing him to be among the many losses incurred by the Levianta Catastrophe he unwittingly caused, the immortal took up the name "Elluka Clockworker" in memory of their engagement and grieved over him during the succeeding centuries.
The surviving Irina blamed Elluka for the catastrophe and her loss of a human body, continuing her rivalry with the fake under the impression she was the same Elluka who took her brother away from her. While historically labeled as an accident caused during an experiment at the royal institute, Kiril's actions were never detailed. After its destruction, Levianta remained a ruined wasteland before finally being resettled nearly three hundred years later.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Despite being a HER, Kiril was a kind and optimistic man, well regarded by his peers and caring for his family. Resisting his malicious impulses until eventually being cured of his condition, Kiril hoped for the salvation of the Magic Kingdom Levianta. He also held an optimism about the survival of the country and the good intentions of those around him, trusting in Seth Twiright's goals for Project 'Ma' and believing Irina was different from other Ghoul Children. As a result of this optimism, he was happy with the apparent peace between him, his sister, and lover and hoped for it to continue.
Despite this, Kiril was aware of his dark past as a Ghoul Child and the common tendency for others of his kind to cause havoc. After Elluka's death, he believed that his origins had caught up with him and began to have doubts about the fate of the kingdom, as well as doubting Seth's intentions to save Levianta. Although continuing to hold out hope in the salvation of his home, he nonetheless was uncertain for the future in his despair. Due to this, he was eager to follow through on Levia's instructions, rampaging through Levianta in his goal to revive Elluka.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
Gifted with strong magical potential, Kiril was able to perform the powerful Clockwork Secret Art. As a result, he could manipulate time to a great extent, including rejuvenating aged magical devices. He was also one of the few humans capable of hearing the voices of Levia and Behemo from within the Sin ark, allowing him to communicate with the twin gods.
Being a clone of Seth Twiright, Kiril shared Seth's impressive intellect; at the same time, he shared the scientist's poor eyesight and needed to wear glasses. However, unlike the scientist and his fellow clone Pale, Kiril had the willpower to resist his darker nature as a HER. Being a clockworker, Kiril was skilled in creating and maintaining magic tools. His skill also extended to being a general artisan, becoming well known among his peers for the music boxes he crafted.
Elluka Chirclatia: Kiril's fiancée. Coming to love Elluka deeply, as well as owing to her his being cured of HER, Kiril cared for and trusted Elluka enough for the two of them to work together in his shop after her expulsion. Kiril was thrown into a deep depression after Elluka's death, becoming desperate enough to believe Levia's voice was that of his beloved's and enthusiastically follow her commands.
Irina Clockworker: Kiril's little sister. Kiril loved and trusted Irina, believing her to be different from others of their kind and not able to succumb to the malice of other Ghoul Children. After her murder of Elluka, Kiril realized her true nature and was inconsolable, questioning the legitimacy of her candidacy to save the kingdom, and even attempted to kill her sometime after the event.
Seth Twiright: Kiril's creator. Kiril originally believed that Seth was a Ghoul Child such as himself, and trusted the passionate director of Project 'Ma' as one of the few Ghoul Children to not cause destruction in Levianta. Following the death of his beloved and watching his HER sister be given the crown for the country, the clockworker reluctantly began to believe that even his motives were suspect.
Conceptualization and OriginsEdit
- The name Kiril is a Slavic derivative of the Greek name Kyrillos, meaning "lordly" or "masterful"; Levianta, his native country, is inspired by Russia.
- Kiril's name is partially based off his representative Vocaloid, Kiyoteru, with both names sharing the first two letters.
