Sin Kiske first appeared in Guilty Gear 2: Overture as one of the main protagonists. He is the son of Ky Kiske and The Maiden of the Grove. Sin doesn't quite get along with his father, but he does appear to have a love for his mother. Throughout GG2: Overture, Sin travels with Sol Badguy. As a child, Sin was kept on a chain by Sol, and always carried his favorite stuffed animal Chimaki with him. Sin is a target of Valentine, due to his Gear cells allowing him to be The Key to open and unlock The Cube. It's currently unknown why Sin wears an eyepatch over his right eye. In Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, Sin continues to follow Sol and ends up carrying most of the luggage.

Even though I never played GG2: Overture, I definitely remember seeing Sin in the artwork for the game... so it was cool to finally see him make his fighting game debut in GGXrd. After seeing his Xrd play-style and personality, I thought Sin might end up being too "silly" of a character... but thankfully, he's got a good balance of humor and badass-factor. Simply put, Sin is a really cool design and fits naturally and perfectly in Guilty Gear.

Some of his staff moves are comparable with the likes of Kilik from Soul Calibur, just a bit wilder. He's got some really epic-looking, hard-hitting attacks, and his "food meter" management is pretty clever and unique in the fighting game world. I definitely liked him as a character more than I thought I would. Although, there are some "weird" elements of his personality, his goofiness can be overlooked. As a standalone 2D fighting game character and a newcomer in the Guilty Gear series... Sin is likeable and interesting design.
