    Kilik (キリク, Kiriku) made his first appearance in Soul Calibur and has returned for Soul Calibur II, Soul Calibur III and Soul Calibur IV. Kilik is a young man with a V-shaped scar under his left cheek, and brown hair and eyes. His costumes typically consist of jackets, shoulder armor, and moccasins that befit his backstory as a former monk. In Soulcalbur, he wore a mirrored sash called the Dvapara Yuga, which protected him from succumbing to the evil in his body. The background story for Soul Calibur II, however, explains that this artifact was destroyed, and Kilik has since worn a fragment of it around his neck.


    Biography: Soul Calibur(top)

    Kilik was raised at the Li-Seng Shu Temple. He was chosen to inherit the Kali-Yuga, one of the three sacred treasures of the temple, after many long years of rigorous training. However, after the Evil Seed rained down on the temple, it caused it's members to lose their sanity and a bloodbath ensued.

    Kilik was driven insane by the evil seed as well. In his rage, and with his great skills, he killed many temple members. Xianglian put the Dvapara-Yuga on Kilik, and he regained his sanity. Unfortunately, the temple members were still evil, so Kilik was forced to kill many of them in self defense. Without the protection of the Dvapara-Yuga, Xianglian was one of the people Kilik was forced to kill.

    When he awoke, the old man who had saved him (Edge Master) told him the truth. Kilik and Kali-Yuga were infected with the evil seed. The only thing protecting him was the Dvapara-Yuga, which was slung around his shoulder. And the source of all this evil was the demonic sword, Soul Edge! After training with the old man, and learning to control the evil within himself and Kali-Yuga, embarked on a quest to purify himself and his weapon.

    Biography: Soul Calibur II(top)

    With the help of Maxi and Xianghua, Kilik defeated Nightmare. He then returned to Edge Master's hermitage, where he continued to perfect the technique of neutralizing and purifying evil energy. One day, however, he sensed the return of the malevolent Soul Edge. Kilik set out on another journey to defeat Soul Edge for good, for he wanted to atone for his sins.

    Biography: Soul Calibur III(top)

    On his quest, Kilik met up with Xianghua. Their differing opinions caused them to argue, but they became traveling companions again, anyway. While his mind was filled with questions, he worked with Xianghua, and, using his fragment of the Dvapara-Yuga, purified the minds of the residents of a city, who had lost their minds. Then, a man with a scythe appeared. "You who are close to the spirit sword - leave this place. A great evil is poised to sweep over this land. Without your mirror, you cannot infuse you weapon with power.

    The man possessed an extraordinarily forceful presence, but Kilik refused to back down. They fought. Kilik lost. "I see you possess arts for purifying evil, but do not underestimate the evil of the sword. If you challenge it unprepared, you will surely find yourself trapped within it's dark Abyss." That was the last thing Kilik heard as he lost consciousness. When he awoke, Kilik found himself in a familiar setting. He was in Edge Master's hermitage. He learned what had happened from his teacher. After the battle, Xianghua had carried him there. Sensing a terrible energy radiating from his wounds, Edge Master had performed a secret ceremony to purify him. An entire month had passes since then.

    Kilik realized his lack of skill. He realized that his purifying arts alone wouldn't be enough to defeat Soul Edge, if he, himself, was not strong. As he thought to himself, he casually placed his hand on his chest. It was at that point that he realized that his fragment of the Dvapara-Yuga was gone. "Xianglian..." The face of the woman who had sacrificed herself to the evil sword appeared in his mind. For her sake, and for the sake of the people of the Li-Seng Shu Temple, he could not give up. But what could he do. The cursed energy that abated him wasn't gone. In fact, it felt as if it were spreading. There was no time to waste.

    Reading Kilik's thoughts, Edge Maser quietly ordered him to begin rigorous training. His teacher intentionally surrounded himself with evil energy, becoming like someone infected by the Evil Seed. Kilik had to face his master with nothing more than his staff. It was the most difficult training he had ever endured, but he had to overcome it in order to get stronger. Edge Master's power was unbelievable. Fast as lightning. Strong as a wild beast. With the spirit of a raging hurricane. Kilik quickly realized that he must focus on purifying his master.

    Within three months, Kilik succeeded in striking his master with a purifying blow but he wounded him deeply at the same time. Edge Master explained that Kilik still lacked skill. A better strike would have purified the mind, and left the body unharmed. However, he had done well for such a short period of time. After tending to his wounds, he handed Kilik a new fragment of the Dvapara-Yuga, and a not from Xianghua. With her words in his heart, Kilik set out West once more. "I'm sorry, Kilik I couldn't do anything. I will work on my skills, grow stronger, and regain my courage. For now, please go on ahead without me. I'm sure that we'll meet again. And next time, let's put an end to all of this. I believe in us. I know that we can do it, if we're together..."

    Biography: Soul Calibur IV(top)

    His body profaned by the Evil Seed sown by Soul Edge, Kilik devoted himself to war against the cursed sword. He trained hard, mastered the art of purging evil, and took an oath to purify Soul Edge once and for all. Only then could he atone for the lives he had taken while evil had ensnared his soul. If there was one answer Kilik arrived at following his training, it was this: Soul Calibur was a being extremely similar to Soul Edge. The key lay in balancing the two blades' torrential power; finding a way that their opposing mights would cancel each other out.

    Kilik had been travelling with Xianghua since reuniting with her during his quest. He knew Xianghua had feelings for him, but he could not return those feelings. Something about xianghua reminded him of Xianglian, the woman he had once loved as an older sister. Each of her smiles only brought back memories of his past, of when he had muredered Xianglian with his own hands. From this, Kilik took resolve. As the Concillator, he faced a brutal road ahead. He must find and maintain just the right equilibrium to keep the scales from tipping toward one great force or the other forever. (I cannot involve Xianghua in this fate I have chosen for myself.) The two drew ever closer to Ostrheinsburg, the final battleground.

    Yet Kilik was determined to move on alone when the time came.
