"Listen! the raging of my soul!"
— Kilik

Kilik (キリク, Kiriku) is a character in the Soul series of fighting games. He appeared in the game Soulcalibur VI, which marks his debut appearance in the new, rebooted Soulcalibur timeline. In this timeline, he at first possessed by the Evil Seed and can only by negated by Dvapara-Yuga, prior manage to control it in the end, just like Grøh before him. He is nicknamed Destiny Awakened (目覚めし宿命 Mezameshi Shukumei?).


Soulcalibur VI

After being abandoned as a child, Kilik was raised by the monks of the Ling-Sheng Su temple where he was raised to be a proficient fighter. While never knowing his true family, Kilik befriended another orphan named Xianglian and a bond formed between them stronger than even the closest of siblings. They grew into proficient warriors, and their efforts were rewarded with each of them being chosen to inherit one of the temple’s three sacred treasures. However, on the night before the official handover ceremony, fate began to stir…

Physical Appearance

Kilik is a fair-skinned young man with a slim but well built physique, medium-length brown hair and brown eyes, possessing a distinct V-shaped scar on his left cheek. When he uses Soul Charge, he becomes possessed. This causes his hair to grow much longer, glowing marks appear on his body, and his eye color changes.
