—Kite, expressing his hatred of humans.
Prior to becoming a Dark Lord, Kite was a Human known as Kite Kakutomi (カクトミ・カイト, Kakutomi Kaito). Born in a small and peaceful village during the GI Era, Kite spent his early years living happily with his parents and older sister. Tragedy struck Kite's family, however, when his sister contracted Greening Disease, a terrible illness with no known cures that afflicts girls between the ages of 10 and 19 by turning their skin green and dooming them to die within 10 years. Out of fear of the disease spreading, Kite's parents sent his sister to live in Green Village, a closed community located on the outskirts of what would later become the Magic Kingdom of Zeth designed to quarantine girls suffering from the disease. Kite, then only five years old, made several attempts to travel to Green Village to visit his sister, but was caught and beaten by his parents each time. Believing his physical weakness to be the thing separating him from his beloved older sister, Kite abandoned his parents and set out into the world in order to train himself to become stronger.
During his training, Kite discovered that he possessed an innate affinity for martial arts, particularly kenpo. This great natural talent allowed him to quickly develop his skills through rigorous training until he was able to enter and win a high profile fighting tournament at the very young age of 15. Following his victory, Kite believed himself to have finally become strong enough to enter Green Village and reunite with his sister. Kite traveled to the isolated village alone, singlehandedly fighting through the Monster-infested and maze-like forest it was hidden within, only to learn upon his arrival that his sister had long since passed away. To make matters worse, he was unable to determine whether she was killed by her disease or by some of the many monsters that routinely invaded the village. Heartbroken by the discovery, Kite became disgusted with the treatment of the girls who inhabited Green Village, and vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to protecting them in order to prevent them from suffering in the same way that his sister did. Using the prize money he obtained from the tournament, Kite bought the girls of the village food, supplies and medicine that was otherwise unavailable to them. Kite then entered several additional fighting tournaments, using all of the wealth that he amassed from his victories to support the village, hoping that he would be able to allow them to live more comfortable lives until a cure for the disease was discovered. All the while, he regularly patrolled the village's perimeter and fought off any monsters that attempted to enter it.
Over time, Kite successfully won every single organized fighting tournament available on The Continent. This caused him to become a legendary figure throughout the Human Realm, with many declaring him to be the single strongest man alive. Despite this praise, Kite remained cold towards the humans who lived outside of Green Village, believing them to be selfish creatures who were content to abandon the girls to their misfortune rather than try and struggle to find them a cure. Eventually, he came to believe that humanity would never make the effort to cure greening disease, making him the only thing standing between the girls who had contracted it and complete misery. These beliefs caused Kite to venture into the Monster Realm and request for the Demon King Gi to transform him into a Dark Lord, hoping to increase his lifespan to allow him to continue protecting the denizens of Green Village for eternity. Likely due to Kite's outstanding strength for a human, Gi accepted his request.
As a Dark Lord, Kite continued to visit, protect and provide for Green Village, though he rarely left the boundaries of the Monster Realm beyond this. On the rare occasions where he did enter human territories, Kite avoided causing collateral damage, only attacking humans who first attempted to attack him. At some point, he encountered the young martial artist Fletcher Modell, who had wandered into monster territory in hopes of encountering a strong opponent. Recognizing Kite for his legendary reputation as a human, Modell challenged him to a battle, which Kite agreed to. Despite possessing both enhanced physical abilities and an Invincibility Field due to being a Dark Lord, Kite ultimately found himself unable to defeat Modell, who utilized his supreme mastery of kenpo to redirect Kite's attacks back at him, allowing him to indirectly damage his opponent. While technically ending in a draw, this battle is recognized as one of only a handful of occasions when a human was ever able to successfully damage a Dark Lord, instantly causing Modell to become a legend.
Following the death of Gi at the hands of Ogawa Kentarou, a human boy from Dimension 3E2, and the disappearance of Kurusu Miki, Gi's chosen successor as Demon King, the Monster Realm fell into a state of civil war. The war was fought between Gi's daughter Hornet, who desired to follow her father's wishes and embrace Miki as the Demon King, and the elite Dark Lord Kayblis, who wished to become the Demon King himself and wage war against humanity. Despite holding no ill will towards Hornet, Kite chose to side with Kayblis due to his hatred of humankind, hoping that by making Kayblis Demon King he would be able to make it suffer in the same way that the girls of Green Village had.
During the events of Rance Quest, Kite was instructed by Kayblis to investigate Zeth in order to search for Camilla, an elite Dark Lord and the object of his affections, who was defeated and sealed away during the fall of Zeth two years prior. The nation was placed into a state of tension by Kite's presence, as its lack of a means of combating him forced it to call for mass evacuation of the populated areas that he entered into, while Kite's own distaste for needless fighting caused him to avoid direct confrontation. Eventually, Kite gave up his search for Camilla's location and began to exit Zeth, making one final stop at Green Village before returning to the Monster Realm. Upon exiting the village, he was ambushed by the warrior Rance, who was called to exterminate him due to being in possession of Chaos the Darksword, one of the few weapons capable of piercing the Invincibility Field and damaging Dark Lords. Despite being caught off guard, Kite's formidable strength and masterful martial skill allowed for him to defeat Rance. Rather than kill the loudmouthed adventurer, however, Kite decided to spare his life, leaving him with a simple warning to never attempt to enter Green Village again.Some time later, Kite made a second visit to Green Village, where he was horrified to discover the diseased girls lying dead on the ground. Kite learned from one of the few girls who had not yet died that the village was visited by a man claiming to be Zeth's Health Minister, who ordered for its residents to be poisoned to death in order to avoid having the disease spread. This revelation caused Kite to be pushed over the edge into a state of rage and despair, resulting in him losing all of his remaining restraint and viciously rampaging through Zeth. The Light Army, led by General Alex Valse, attempted to impede his progress, but was quickly crushed by Kite's overwhelming power and its inability to conventionally damage him.
With the Zeth military having no way of damaging Kite, Rance was once again called in to attempt to defeat him, this time encountering him within the ranch of Meg Makibano. The fight was immediately interrupted by Calory Mate, a former resident of Green Village with an exceptionally close relationship with Kite, who had met, befriended and gotten cured of her disease by Rance shortly after his first encounter with the Dark Lord. Calory attempted to reason with Kite, reminding him of the love that he showed to her and that she possessed for him, but was unable to awaken him from his frenzy. Shortly after this, Am Isuel, the enigmatic leader of the organization Shepherds, revealed herself and explained that it was actually her subordinates, not the Zeth government, who were responsible for poisoning Green Village in order to pollute Kite's Soul and strip him of his consciousness. The group then planned to use Kite's ensuing rampage across the Continent to further spread despair throughout humanity, which would be amplified by the Magic of the Kalar Queen Pastel Kalar, who they had captured and brainwashed.
Rance and his companions eventually succeeded in defeating Kite, reducing him to a Demonic Blood Soul. Upon examining his blood soul, Crook Mofus determined that Kite's soul had reached 100% pollution, meaning that his personality had been completely eroded by his feelings of despair. Kite's blood soul was then taken into the custody of the AL Church, where it was sealed away.
In the non-canonical Kichikuou Rance, Kite assists the rest of the Kayblis Faction in decisively defeating Hornet and seizing control of the Monster Realm. After declaring war on the humans, Kayblis orders Kite, alongside Galtia, to invade through Zeth. While it is possible for Kite to be killed in direct combat, he can alternatively be defeated after fighting him for an extended period of time, after which the Leazas Army will learn of his frequent visits to Green Village. If Rance chooses to visit Green Village after obtaining this information, he will inadvertently discover that human semen cures greening disease, leading to most of its population being cured. When Kite makes his next trip to the village, he is shocked to see that the disease has at last been cured. While Calory makes an effort to persuade him to come live with her, professing her love for him in the process, Kite declines, claiming that with greening disease finally cured he has no reason to remain in the world, after which he disappears, never to be seen by anyone ever again.
Personality and Appearance EditHe's a rather short man with a ridiculously muscular body, to the point he can't wear shirts. This might have been an effect of his transformation to a Dark Lord. He's bald and keeps his eyes thin and almost closed most of the times.
He's quite sympathetic, respectful and cortious, even against his enemies from the Hornet Faction. Kite is a compassionate Dark Lord that helps weak humans in need, and often visits a village near the monster realm where humans are kept in quarantine, protecting them from monsters and providing food and money.
Despite this, he joined Kayblis, whose main goal is to kill Miki Kurusu and all the humans. He hates human society as a whole, because he despises nobles and kings that live in luxury while hundreds die of starvation or diseases.
In Kichikuou Rance he was enraged after seeing the castles where nobles lived in Zeth, and slaughtered them cold-bloodedly, including women and children.
He's particularly attach to a girl from the Green Village called Calory Mate. He's been visiting the village for the last centuries, providing protection and support. During its history he's seen many weak humans in the most unstable conditions in the village, hopelessly waiting the day until the disease kills them. Calory shows great enthusiasm and optimism and, despite the fact that she also carries the Green Disease herself, she's always helping the others and keeping a cheerful attitude. She's very grateful towards Kite and is always waiting for him to return.
AbilitiesEditKite is a powerful Dark Lord specialized in physical combat. Even as a human he was wordly famous for his impressive martial arts and strength. He's an expert in hand-to-hand combat and has a Lv2 skill in Martial Arts. Very few could match him in combat with his impressive technique and sheer strength. His level cap was 170, and since he spends most of his time training and getting stronger, he was level 169 in Kichikuou Rance meaning he was almost at his cap.
He once fought against Fletcher Modell, a human with a Lv3 skill in martial arts and was one of the strongest humans in history. The fierce battle ended in a draw. Though this was because fletcher kept deflecting his attacks back at him.
There's a monster called "Kite Clone" that was modeled after him due to his great fame as a martial artist. Through the kite clones he has his own personal army.
- Kite is one of the shortest male characters in the series, being only 168cm tall.
- Kite and Lei are the only known Dark lords to have a human fall for them.
- Kite is the only known Dark Lord to have a type of monster modeled after him.
