- In his debut, Kiros is revealed to be lustful and obsessed towards Princess Ial as well as a stalker when he stalks the princess who is bathing in the falls.
- His Crescent Screw skill is used to destroy the Shot Bomber along with his doggler's fire blast. His skill is later revealed to use his escape from reaching into the abyss and his main reason of his survival.
- His Doggler also transforms into a white horse which Kiros had mounted on his debut.
- When using his Crescent Screw, Kiros has a red background scene during execution.
