Kiron is the Master Swordsman of Chronos. After much battle prestige, Kiron chose a quiet retirement over a government post. By chance he saved the child Ares from an assassin and raised him. During their six years together as master and apprentice, he imparted his skills to the boy as his eyesight slowly failed. They lived quietly until Kirberos, the Red-Eyed Swordsman, tracked them down. Kiron fought well until Kirberos used Ares as bait to lure the now completely blind Master Swordsman into a wooded copse whose layout he did not know as well as his own property. Kirberos killed Kiron and added Kiron's sword to his collection. Ares vowed to not return to his master's grave until he had defeated the Red-Eyed Swordsman.
The late Master Swordsman of Chronos was also known as the Swordsman of the Wind for the sound made by his blade as he fought.

- Kiron: Genius who devoted all his life to the sword. He won against countless opponents. They challenged him, just hearing his name, but inevitably lost, unable to keep up with his incredibly fast blade.
- Agility: Kiron is very clever and can use his arms and legs to good use in combat. If his sword is repelled, he can deliver a crushing kick or grab an enemy's hands. And he hits strong enough to knock out an experienced warrior.
- Heightened senses: All Kiron's senses are sharpened incredibly, especially hearing. He hears the slightest movement of air that accompanies any attack of the enemy, and at the expense of someone else anticipates attacks. Even blinded, he is able to fight at almost the same level as before, and his punches did not lose any accuracy, though they cause Kiron not to rely on sight and hearing.
