Death Battle Fanon Wiki
Kirei Kotomine

A certain scripture mentions that humans are superior to angels. Why? Because there are people who know of evil, but do not become evil. It's different from angels, who know only of good since birth. Humans have evil, but can live as good, so they are superior to angels, who know only good.
~ Kirei

People cannot change the past. All we can do is accept our own actions. If you still wish to be burdened by your sins, let it show in your future actions. It is your choice how to perceive something that has already happened.
~ Kirei

Kirei Kotomine is a character the light novels, Fate/Zero and Fate/stay night. He is a priest who serves as a Master during the Fourth and Fifth Holy Grail War in the Fate visual novels.
