|Dragon Quest IV|
Kiryl is a character in IV.
Kiryl wears the traditional hat of a priest character.
He is very loyal to Tsarevna Alena, as evidenced by how he immediately rushes after her when she escapes. It is also noted that he has a crush on the princess as well.
In the remake version of the game, it is revealed that he is scared of heights if you use the party chat in certain areas.
Chapter 2 begins with Alena begging her father, the Tsar of Zamoksva, to let her explore the world, since strong fighters are needed more and more in their troubled times, with the Underworld creeping out of dormancy. However, he refuses, saying that with monsters showing increasing aggression, it's simply too dangerous to let her leave the safety of the castle. Alena goes back to her room but, within a few minutes, has been overcome with frustration and escapes the castle.
Kiryl and Borya, her retainers, give chase; they're resigned to not being able to make her stay put, but if she's going to leave, they can't allow her to travel alone. The three set out and soon come to a small village being terrorized by a local monster continually demanding young girls as a sacrifice. Alena immediately heads to the local church to offer herself as the next sacrifice, but she has no intention of dying; as soon as the demon shows its face, she, Kiryl and Broya spring into action and take it out, saving the village.
Alena and her companions are not seen again until Chapter 5, when Kiryl has fallen under a dangerous fever and is bedridden in Mintos. Alena and a band of three mercenaries set out to the weed's reported location to try and recover some to cure Kiryl, but fails. However, the Hero succeeds, and upon learning of their destiny the three immediately join the party for the remainder of the game. Some time later, they return to Zamoksva, finding the cause of its troubles to be the demon Baalzack, whom they kill in retribution and for the greater good.
Kiryl appears as one of the special guests at Quester's Rest in Stornway. This can be obtained through the DQVC using Nintendo's Wi-Fi Channel. When you talk to him, he gives you different pieces of his outfit depending on different situations.
Kiryl corresponds to the priest vocation. He learns strong healing and defensive spells and can equip the strongest armor and weapons in the game, aside from the legendary Zenithian equipment.
|Dragon Quest IV (DS)|
In the NES localisation, Kiryl was originally known as Cristo, and was occasionally identified by the alternate transliterations Crifto, Krifto and Clift.
