"We are the sisters of despair; we fear nothing..."
— Kiera and Chanaya

The Sisters of Despair (絶望の姉妹, Zetsubō no shimai) real names Kiera and Chanaya, are fan characters originally created by SoulGauger but now owned by Hyper Zergling for the Soul series of fighting games. They can be created in Soul Calibur V's Character Creation and will make their appearance in Soul Calibur: Circle of Legends as non-playable characters.


Kiera and Chanaya are twins who were orphaned by a bandit attack at the age of 15. Now parent-less, they were forced to live on the streets and had only each other to take care of. In order to survive, the sisters repeatedly stole food and clothing while traveling from city to city to avoid imprisonment.

Years later, the sisters were discovered by Yvette, the daughter of the duke Henri, who brought them to her father, promising that she would not turn them over to authorities.

When the sisters were brought to Henri, Kiera explained to the duke that she and her sister no longer have parents and have only been taking care of each other. Henri "sympathized" with the sisters and then promised them a better life. Anticipating fighting potential in the sisters, the duke provided each sister with a cutlass, each infused with a Soul Edge shard. These blades, Henri called the "Swords of Despair."

After the sisters accepted the Swords of Despair, Henri gave them to the Edge Mistress to train. With time, the sisters became stronger, not only from their mentor's training, but also from the power their swords gave them. It was not long before both sisters were no longer human. Once they became powerful warriors in their own rights, they became known as the "Sisters of Despair."


Kiera and Chanaya are both fiercely loyal to Henri. Kiera, the older twin, tends to speak for both herself and her sister.
