Under the sagely tutelage of the Starseer, the hot-headed Kirynite is skilled in all manners of combat for his age. His armor, forged from the legendary Kirin scales, serves as his shield against evildoers who would harm his allies; while his Kirin swords, controlled by his will, take on a life of their own to take the lives of his enemies.

Prior to the first game rebalancing in November 2015, Kirynite's Awakening AOE shockwave dealt a 3 second Silence to all enemies. After the nerf, Kirynite usage plummeted as Aegis and Peony were favoured due to their more specialized roles of defence and control respectively. In version 1.09, his AOE silencing capabilities were reinstated through the equipping of all his Fate equipment.
Historically, Kirynite is based off Jiang Wei (Jiāng Wéi (姜维) , often fictionally adapted to be an enthusiastic military greenhorn who wields the powers of lightning through the use of a spear .
In-game lore states that Kirynite is a student of Starseer, which is similar to other fictional adaptations of Jiang Wei's student-teacher relationship with Zhuge Liang.
