&minu; character flaws
the world is not perfect, therefore it isNo one is perfect. Perfection is simply a goal to the human mind, but such a dream is never truly accomplished. In addition, perfection is only seen through the eye of the beholder. What seems perfect to some may not be for others. To put it in a syllogism, Ky is a person, but no person is perfect, therefore, Ky isn't perfect.
Ky, like all humans in some way or another, strives for perfection. In his mind, perfection is being as noble as possible. Perfection is wearing appropriate clothing, saving lives, and making others happy. Perfection is God, so in a way, Ky tries to reach God as close as possible. Only those of good-will would find and make happiness.
So shattered was this idea was when Sol managed to defeat Justice before him. He feels emasculated, and immaturely blames the man, despite the fact that he saved everyone's life by removing the Gear. It makes Ky seem childish to find it easier to put the blame on the opposite side (monsters, etc.) because it seemed to him that they are the ones at fault.
Back in those days, everything was simple to Ky's mind. Gears were bad, humans were good, and their balance is essential (in that case, law is that balance). You may as well call him prejudice, which is quite ironic to what he fights for. To put it in an analogy, compare the contrasts of humans and gears to a wall, or just a pile of scattered bricks. Because of the disruption and suffering, it seemed logically that humans were working together to prevent the war. Thus, they help build more of the wall between the humans and gears. Now that the war is over, life is slowly retracing it's roots. By that, the wall slowly begins to crumble, with some good Gears crossing over, and some humans being compared to the Gears. Ky watches in shock as everything he has determined over the course of time is changing around. Confused, he tries to recreate the wall, though he has yet to realize that the pieces are too rugged to put back together.
Why must I make friends with the hated and make enemies of the respected... It's times like these when I miss the days of the war. The days before I discovered the little space between good and evil...
In my opinion, in effect of Ky's sluggish acceptance of the mercurial world, he is still affected by the war. He was born during the war, lost many close people from the war, and is now seeking answers about the war. We see him still wearing the uniform, chasing after Sol, and upholding his idealistic view of the world.
Ky is also very naive because of his lifestyle - a.k.a. a “spoiled brat". It can be assumed that he might have lived a sheltered lifestyle. He was part aristocracy, and he has earned high positions with only a few years of experience. We normally see him in his office and not going out much, except when on duty. Everyone at work gives him high respect, which might make him slightly pampered.
He is often interpreted as a man with too much confidence. He rushes into things without questions, and feels that the safety of the people lies in the hands of the law. Due to his strong will to protect others, Ky fears failing. He has witnessed plenty of bloodshed, and not just the Gears. During the war, men were willing to sacrifice themselves to save his life. Even now, plenty of officers were more concerned about his safety than anything else. Sacrifice, as we all, bears a large feeling of guilt to those being protected. Because of that, Ky blindly does anything to prevent deaths - even at the cost of his own life, which he promised to Potemkin during the X Drama CD vol.1, and demonstrated in the Side Red CD. A notable conversation illustrating Ky's insecurity comes between an officer and himself during the aforementioned drama CD:
Ky: Sometimes I feel angry at myself... even though I'm telling them to commit suicide... they follow me anyway.
Officer: Then, why ask for volunteers? You could've just ordered everyone.
Ky: Yes... if we live, I'll remember that.
Officer: Please don't make that face. The soldiers will be frightened.
Ky: And it would be nice if they were frightened and quit... no. Let's go.
