|“||Do you want to get this body back and save the girl? You are, right? Is she a loved friend and a member of your little family? Did you build sweet little memories together? Made any lasting promises? If that's the case... Then I shall kill her precious family with her hands and body. Those of you who loved her and are tryin' to save her... you shall drink from the chalice of pain, sorrow and despair, and endure the most gruesome death of this world. I shall shatter your beautiful memories and transform them into a hellscape of despair and pain. She will then witness your mangled and defiled bodies. She will be drowned in your blood before I smother her out for good. She will die in agony and sorrow as I enjoy myself with her tears. Family, friends, happiness, memories, dreams, hope, future, love... She does not deserve it. She is unworthy of this. She will never get these. And I shall start with you.

|~ Herrscher of the Void's speech.|
|“||Sirin: Seriously? I waited you for three days on the moon and you cannot even stand up after a few blows? You let me down, First Lawman. If that is the case, I'll have fun destroying your planet and you will quietly watch the performance of my meteorites falling to Earth! Hahahaha! Go on! Scream and cry! Ask to your friends come to help you! ★
Welt: You've become a monster, Second Lawman. You're rotten to the core. Your humanity is gone. Now, you're only an empty shell of darkness and coldness, a simply and pure monster. Like you... a void. The only thing you became was the queen of all beasts.
Sirin: No. I'm the Goddess of the Houkai, the face of all humankind's death. But you all see Houkai as beasts, right? So, yes, First Lawman. I'm a complete monster to the core.
|~ Sirin to Welt.|
|“||Do not waste the Herrscher power and intellect gift I gifted you. Humans are numerous as ants. They multiply like parasites. A few rocks and countries destroyed are not going to kill all of them. Furthermore, humans are deceitful creatures. Even I fell to their trickery once. Now, come to the moon, First Herrscher. If you don't come, I'll deliver 4 meteors to Earth every 72 hours. Don't keep me waiting, I'm low on patience.||„|
|~ Sirin to Benares and the First Herrscher.|
|“||Humans, your existence is a mistake. War, cheating, jealously, greed. Your existence is a sin that has to be wiped out. You once made me lose everything. But now I'll devour everything. Because I am the Houkai (Apocalypse).||„|
|~ Herrscher of the Void's most iconic quote.|
Born as Sirin (in Chinese: 西琳, Xī Lín) and later known as Herrscher of the Void (in Chinese: 空之律者, Kōng Zhī Lǜzhě), also known as Queen of the Void, Second Ruler of the New World, Last Herrscher of the Old World, Houkai God, Queen of the Houkai, Ultimate Ruler, Second Herrscher/Lawman, God Kiana, Goddess of the Void and possibly hundreds more is one of the three main antagonists (alongside Otto Apocalypse and Houkai God/God Kiana) of the popular ongoing Chinese iOS/Android game Honkai Impact 3 and its prequel Guns Girl Z (also known as Houkai Gakuen 2). She was born as a Belarusian reincarnation of God Kiana/Sirin, the central antagonist of the prequel game set in the Old World Guns Girl Z who turns out to be her previous persona from her past life and the responsible for creating Honkai Impact 3 New World after she reset the reality and destroyed the old timeline of the universe. She will also appear in the 2019 Houkai Gakuen Reboot as the central antagonist and in the 2020 game Honkai Impact 4th as a recurring antagonist.
She is a playable character (rare character) introduced as the overarching antagonist in the first 4 chapters of the game (and all of its previous arcs, comic books and side-stories), the main antagonist of the chapters 5-9, a major and final antagonist in the Moon Shadow comic, the titular protagonist of 2nd Lawman prequel comic book, a posthumous antagonist in the Honkai Impact 3rd manhua and a major character in the 4koma comics. Although she is a servant of the overall main antagonist (God Kiana) Herrscher of the Void is the biggest threat faced by the protagonists, the most dangerous and dreadful Herrscher of history for unleashing two Apocalypses upon humankind since Herrscher of the Erosion the 12th Ruler of the Old World who started the Second Apocalypse in 1470 with the Black Death in the New World, making herself the most evil and fearsome Ruler of all time. Due to her destructive legacy her existence became a taboo to human race. Due to her widely important role she also appears in numerous other fictional works related to the Guns Girl Series as the overarching or central antagonist, becoming the most influential, popular and diabolical villainess in Asian mobile games to date.
Sirin was born in Belarus and was once an poor orphan girl who used to be one of the test subjects of Schicksal's Babylon Tower's research department, where she was daily tortured with drugs and suffered brutal human experiments. Once she awakened the power of the 2nd Herrscher within her, she immediately went on a rampage and killed all 322 scientists of the facility, including some of other children out of spite and hatred. As the new queen of the Houkai race, she discarded her humanity to become a Herrscher and an Apostle of God, and begun to hunt down Valkyries and humans alike all across the world, becoming a brutal terrorist with the blood of thousands in her hands until her defeat by the hands of the 2nd Lawman. Later, she made a deal with the Houkai God to gain even more power and used her new powers to destroy multiples continents with debris of the moon, killing a large portion of mankind before starting the 2nd Houkai War and by consequence the Armageddon. With the war, she founded her own army of Houkai and Pseudo-Herrschers. She was killed by the S-Valkyrie Cecilia Shariac during a rain of nuclear missiles but not before taking the whole North Siberia into her void realm, killing millions more before her defeat.
After her first death 15 years ago (2000) her Ruler core has been divided into four parts, they are called the Domination of Thunder, the Crave of Storm, the Silence of Death and the Contamination of Flame. The four different parts are kept separately by Schicksal and Anti-Entropy. She would later reincarnate in the body of the main heroine in 2015, Kiana Kaslana (K-423) after the latter was fused with parts of her core by Otto Apocalypse. During the events of Shadow Moon arc, she takes over her mind after being fused with the Gem of Death and tries to destroy Singapore to gain more power but failed. 1 year later, she attempts to break her host's sanity by tormeting her with nightmares of the past. Months later, Kiana was captured by Shicksal and was forced to submit to Sirin's core. Sirin then takes over Kiana's body again and proceeded to spread destruction and chaos to the entire planet with volcanic activities, starting the Fourth Apocalypse and pushing all life to a near-extinction state before her third defeat with the sacrifice of Murata Himeko. She is currently sealed inside of Kiana Kaslana, waiting for the moment to wake up again and destroy all civilization once and for all.
Sirin is voiced by Wang Xiaotong in the original Chinese version of the game and Sakura Tange in the Japanese version of the game. In her God Kiana's form she is voiced by Shanxin in the Chinese original version and Rie Kugimiya in the Japanese version, whom also voices Agnese Sanctis from Toaru no Majutsu no Index, Sugar from One Piece, Nora from Noragami and Melona from Queen's Blade.

|“||So many people died because of her. Cecilia too... We gave her a chance to turn back... but she refused to do so. Let her slowly regret her crimes for all eternity.||„|
|~ Siegfried Kaslana on Sirin.|
Sirin was the Second Ruler of the New World after Welt Joyce and Young. She dominated the power of the void. She became a ruler and started the Second Impact in 2000, at a Schicksal laboratory and has pulled the whole North Siberia into her void realm. Rumours say that she was inhumanely experimented on and tortured by the tests and therefore awakened the ruler consciousness inside of her. Sirin perished together with S-rank Valkyrja Cecilia Shania and four other A-rank Valkries (Squad Snow Wolf) in a series of nuclear explosions caused by a rain of missiles from Schicksal. After Sirin's death, her Ruler core has been divided into four parts, they are called the Domination of Thunder, the Crave of Storm, the Silence of Death and the Contamination of Flame. The four different parts are kept seperately by Schicksal and Anti-Entropy.
In order to reappear Sirin's power, Otto Apocalypse has created K-423 using Sirin's DNA and techniques that cloned Theresa, his niece. However, this makes Sirin alive within K-423 and possesses a considerable amount of power, which is just as Otto secretly planned. Normally Sirin's power doesn't normally show up, but in some special conditions, her power would burst, dealing a large scale of destruction. The mysterious sound in Kiana's (K-423) head is actually Sirin's, but she doesn't have a clue.
In 2016, the alliance of Far East Branch rebels and AE successfully made a bridgehead at Schicksal HQ, but Rita Rossweisse and Fu Hua managed to defeat the rebel forces led by Himeko Murata and Dr. Tesla. The awakened Sirin (using Kiana's body as a host) then made her appearance and attacked the rebel forces as well. Sirin (acting through her host body Kiana) wreaked havoc, defeating Mei and taking the Gem of Conquest from her. While the battle raged on, Fu Hua secretly freed Himeko and Tesla. The latter then ventured through the Helheim labs and located a prototype Godsbane battlesuit (Vermilion Knight: Eclipse) and an anti-Houkai serum. Himeko armed herself and arrived at the battle scene where she fought the 2nd Herrscher Sirin.
In desperation, Einstein unleashed an underpowered blast of the anti-Houkai beam. Though appearing to be wounded, Sirin was able to seek refuge in Imaginary Space. Benares, Sirin's dragon, then attacked the Hyperion in her place. Himeko bested the beast, only to be dragged into Imaginary Space where the fully recovered Sirin fought her again. After a brutal fight, Himeko managed to deliver the anti-Houkai serum, freeing Kiana from Sirin's possession. Meanwhile, Theresa and Anti-Entropy forces were forced to flee Schicksal HQ when defeat seemed certain. Sirin's reawakening had initiated a global scale disaster that devastated the entire planet for four months. Only several large cities remained standing. The whereabouts of Himeko and Kiana, however, remained elusive.

|~ Otto Apocalypse in her guide video.|
A sociopathic, arrogant, narcissistic and sadistic entity who is the second Ruler after Welt Joyce, and dominated the power of the void. She became a ruler and started the Second Impact in 2000, at the Schicksal laboratory and has pulled North Siberia into her void realm, killing millions more in a bloody war. Rumors say that she was inhumanely experimented on and tortured by the tests and therefore awakened the ruler consciousness inside of her. Sirin perished together with S-rank Valkyrja Cecilia Schariac and four other A-rank Valkyries (Squad Snow Wolf) in a series of nuclear explosions caused by a rain of missiles from Schicksal. After Sirin's death, her Ruler core has been divided into four parts, they are called the Domination of Thunder, the Crave of Storm, the Silence of Death and the Contamination of Flame. The four different parts are kept separately by Schicksal and Anti-Entropy. This marked the beginning of Project Celine, a plan that will alter the destiny of all those involved.
In the current game era (Honkai Impact 3rd) Otto Apocalypse has created K-423 using Sirin's DNA and techniques that cloned Theresa Apocalypse, his niece. However, this makes Sirin alive within K-423 and possesses a considerable amount of power, which is just as Otto secretly planned. K423 is the only Herrscher clone that managed to survive. Her DNA was spliced with genes of Kiana Kaslana, the daughter of Siegfried Kaslana and Cecilia Schariac, the two most powerful warriors of Schicksal. The clone was prepared as a physical host for the reawakened Herrscher and help Schicksal control her powers. Sirin's power doesn't normally show up, but in some special conditions, her power would burst dealing a large scale of destruction. The mysterious sound in Kiana's (K-423) head is actually Sirin's, but she doesn't have a clue.
When compared to previous records of the Herrscher's temperment, the re-awakened Herrscher seemed to have limited vocabulary and strange aloofness. Perhaps she has yet to fully adapt to the modern world and her new host body. Sirin's soul did not change at all. Once she gains complete control over the host body, the mad and arrogant personality of the Herrscher of the Void shall surface once more. After 16 years of hard work, the Herrscher of the Void ascended onto the physical world once again to law wake to humanity.
Sirin is a petite girl with fair skin, at the time she became a Herrscher she was 14-years old. As of her introduction, she has long, multi-colored violet hair that reaches down to her feet and changes its color at the borders of her hair, with two hair flaps on the two sides of her head. Her hair is considered to be absurdly long but she doesn't seem to have problem fighting with it. Sirin's most notable feature are her eyes that are yellow and have diamonds/crosses-shaped pupils that is somehow similar to a cat's eyes.
Sirin wears a very peculiar dress in both human and Ruler forms. In her human form, she wears an off-shoulder purple and white dress with an cleavage cutout, short sleeves and is notable for having two coattails and a few artificial flowers around her waist. In her right arm purple elbow gloves while she covers her left arm with purple bandages; her bandaged arm is actually a purple-glowing left hand. During her time as a human, she worre a hair ornament that was more like a hair clip with two purple feathers; alongside each other they formed a horn-like figure. Sirin's dress was also extremely short, exposing most of her lower body, leaving her legs bare. She also wore a purple toeless legwear that was also similar to bandages. In her human form, she hated to use shoes. Although barely visible, there is a red tattoo on the left side of her neck.
In her Ruler form, her dress becomes something almost impossible to describe due to its complex design, it's now a strapless dress with several cutout on the front, exposing her shoulders and chest. With her new dress, she also gained a very strange skirt with purple wings located around her waist. Her arms are no longer bandaged and now she wears two elbow purple gloves with two sharp blades on the top of her arms. Her hair's clip was now altered to an ornament similar to a two horns located on the middle of her head. With the new dress, she also wore purple and pink shoes that had four accessories with the format of wings on the top of them.
Kiana Kaslana (K-423)
Kiana Kaslana, or K-423 is a slender, white-haired girl with blue eyes and of average height typical of those from the Kaslana heritage. Though her clothing changes often both in-game and in other sources like the manhua due to the different battlesuits she deploys in battle, she always sports twin braids and has a signature ahoge (lit. idiot hair in Japanese) on the top of her head. She also uses dual pistols as her weapons in battle.
As Herrscher of the Void, her battlesuit is also rather sensual compared to her other suits as it shows her bare shoulders and is noticeably tighter around the legs. In her new form, Herrscher no longer uses Kiana's twin braids and leaves her hair free to move, one could say her hair is a messy compared to Kiana's. After Sirin took over Kiana's body, her eyes were altered to Sirin's eyes, with the same yellow and crosses-shaped pupils.
She wears a white and black short armored dress that is rather thin and tight and has a considerable short skirt. The dress exposes her shoulders and cleavage, and just like Sirin's old dresses, it also exposes her legs. She also wears an a black (with pink glowing strings) elbow glove on the left hand while she simply uses a white and orange glove on the right hand. Her dress also has a new accessory, she has a fur-trimmed neck made of crow's black fur with a black and golden accessory in front of it. In this new form, she wears black thighhighs that reach just above her knee while she wears a black and yellow shoe made of the same material of her thighhighs.
In the past, Sirin was naïve and innocent, believing that living in the Babylon tower would be a better place to live rather than living as a poor orphan. However, it turns out it was a lie and she was forced to live all days being used as a guinea pig in human experiments.
She was a shy girl who is always kind and sweet towards others, even going out of her way to assist a stranger. She is selfless and self-depreciating as she thinks lowly of herself and values other people’s happiness more than her own. She was young and optimistic, as she always sees the good in everyone and even went as far to bury children she never met before. She was very sensitive and feels insulted easily. Moreover, she was easily scared of things around her such as the Shicksal doctors and the tower she was being kept in.
She usually lets her emotions out and has a holding them in. At times, she accidentally is too honest and blabbers out the truth. Despite her introverted personality, she is social and talkative so she isn't a quiet person. She was bubbly and cheerful, especially since she is very fond and passionate of her friends. She was sometimes quite enthusiastic and easily excitable when comfortable. Because of her cute and childish demeanor, she has an easily noticeable presence, attracting the attention of strangers, including other children who saw her as a comfortable person to relieve from their pain and agony.
As a guinea pig, Sirin was defenseless, believing herself to be merely another cattle ready to be discarded. However, she was still able to make friends and enjoy the little time of life she still had. Unlike other children who lost their will to live and hold other people dearly, Sirin actually had love for life and considered all children to be her only family, which is why while other children simply considered the death of guinea pigs to be the most normal thing in the world, Sirin, on the other hand, felt despair and sorrow for losing her family one by one. Those deaths not only caused her to hold a great hatred towards the scientists of the tower but also developed a power-hungry personality, considering it to be the only thing this world needed to be changed. She saw civilization as a lie and all humanity to be a façade of human race, considering their goodness to be just a false image of themselves when they are actually heartless to the core. Because of that, she hated being a human herself.
After she was reincarnated, she lost most of her old personality. She is now a very cold, callous, and dispassionate figure, and is rather aloof, brooding, and indifferent, willing to harm her comrades in addition to her enemies should they get in her way. She refers to anyone she does not find interesting as "trash", and treats them as expendable. Above all, she was murderous, cruel, sadistic, narcissistic, destructive, treacherous, self-centered, uncaring, and misanthropic to an extreme point where she defines herself to be the Armageddon itself. Once facing her enemies, she is impassive, and regal, but her aloof exterior hides a seething anger.
She displays scathing contempt and resentment towards mankind, evidenced in her hateful speech towards Valkyries and humans. Despite her independent streak, it is not to say Herrscher would completely reject all assistance, if only she was forced into a desperate measure. However, she had very little attachment to anything that did not amplify her fame or existence;. she viewed her followers and minions as nothing more than disposable pawns to carry out her tasks, only valuing their usefulness and physical abilities.
As stated by many, Herrscher of the Void demonstrates a strange habit: when killing victims she is particularly interested in strangle her victims to death so she can feel their lives fading away with her own hands, something she considers to be one of the greatest pleasure she can feel. Whether she is consciously aware of this habit or not is unknown. She also claims she does not believe in human emotions, which she refers to as the "love" and "heart" reasoning that if her eye cannot see them, they do not exist. These words, and much of Herrscher's overall behavior, reflect the concepts of materialism, which connects to her aspect of Emptiness, as evidenced by her name "Herrscher of the Void", a figure devoid of all emotions, humanity, compassion, kindness and goodness.
Her cold demeanor allows her to stay completely calm and in control in most situations, and she is not easily surprised or caught off-guard. However, she does not seem to comprehend the trait of fighting against all odds; during her final battle with Himeko, she completely overwhelms the Valkyrie in less than 5 seconds, yet Himeko continues to fight on regardless of this, prompting a visibly frustrated Herrscher to yell about how pointless Himeko continuing to fight after showing a small fraction of her power to attempt to show Himeko "true despair" and destroy her mentally, showing her how hopeless she is in fighting someone who is stronger than her; a Goddess. Herrscher can be very demanding due to her narcissism and egocentric personality as she considers every single being to be her servant or just a plaything for her to psychologically, physically (possibly sexually as well) abuse and torture, and then discards them after they are dead or mentally broken. She is also not above torturing and killing animals, children and infants as well, and is fully capable of committing truly abhorrent and inhumane actions without feeling any shred of remorse or hesitation.
She maintains a cautious and cool demeanor, being always in control of her actions. She also holds herself with dignity to keep her image as queen pure from any disgraceful human behavior she had before, making an attempt to destroy her human heart to become a complete monster and superior Goddess to be free from all moral and ethic. Herrscher of the Void was considered by many to be the most evil Herrscher of history as no one ever caused so much damage to the world before.
Her nature far exceeded that of any common evildoer, even Siegfried at one point stated that she "went beyond normal evil" in the extent of her crimes after she started the Armageddon 16 years later, killing billions and bringing humanity to the brink of extinction. Indeed, Herrscher speedily developed into a power-obsessed megalomaniac of the worst kind and the worst of any known Herrscher in her quest for revenge for everything humans did to her.
She was unable and unwilling to express remorse or empathy for the countless crimes she had committed. This was a stark contrast to many other Herrschers who proved to display genuine remorse for their crimes and even before their fall, pity for those abused for their power and even if only a little, care for their followers, all which Herrscher of the Void completely lacked. While all Herrschers are considered to made of pure evil, this theory later becomes false when the Herrscher of the Lightning proved to have feelings and formed a bond with her host, Raiden Mei, becoming one of the first Herrscher to become good. It could stated Herrschers are tragic figures born to destroy but once they experience love even them can become good-hearted beings. Sirin experienced several moments of affection and love when she lived in the imaginary world as part of Kaslana family but in the end she stayed the same ruthless monster as shown during her return 14 years later.
At the same time, due to her excessive evil and brutality, others would deny she was still alive for a sense of self-comfort, until evidence was given to their very eyes. During her lifetime including much of her childhood (mostly after her escape from Babylon tower), she was shown to be highly aggressive and sadistic, showing as little mercy to her followers as she did her enemies and even exposing her victims to intense despair and fear by killing their friends and families before finishing them off in the most cruel ways possible. She felt no desire or need for human companionship or friendship, for her power was the only thing that existed while the concept of good and evil was just a fantasy.
Her thought of everything in terms of power (which she equated to domination through energy). She was somewhat willfully ignorant of people or matters which she considered to have no value of her presence. She was also arrogant to the point that a few words would break her enemies, including using some of her powers would immediately destroy her enemies in a matter of seconds. Once her enemies proved to be alive, she would lose her cool and start making death threats with anger and spite.
Herrscher of the Void saw mankind as insects, even stating killing one of them (a child) would be like stepping on an ant and even if she killed 30 millions or 100 millions, it would mean nothing as they reproduce like virus. For her the only way to satisfy herself would be killing all human race of the planet and then reviving billions once again to torment and torture just so she can kill them again for her sick and twisted sadism.
Herrscher did not believe in anyone but herself, nor did she value her fellow Houkai servants except to the extent that they were useful to her. She often described her followers as 'friends' because they are not humans, but in no way treated them like an ordinary person does their friends or family. At one point, she revived her three best friends of her childhood as her servants but she never displayed any kind of affection towards them as she willing to sacrifice them at any time for her own purposes. As such, she was not above killing the children she once trusted and whom were her friends during her days as a guinea pig of the Babylon tower, showing that she lost completely every human quality she once had. Sirin had a need for independence that bordered on pathological, and she preferred to operate in secrecy and solitude whenever possible, even when bombing Earth with meteors, she choose to keep her identity as humanity's destroyer in secrecy. Sirin was so sociopathic, egocentric, and narcissistic that she frequently referred to herself in the third person as "Goddess", "Ruler" or "Your Queen".
As Sirin, she was considered an intelligent, polite young girl who showed an enthusiasm to learn more about the Herrschers and God and was able to use her superficial charm to make many do her bidding, showing her skill at being an exceptional master manipulator. She was described being a charming, calm, brilliant and determinated to the point of greed. She also had an extremely obsessive nature. When Kiana glimpsed into her mind, she often saw repetitive imagery, symptomatic of Sirin's inability to let go of thoughts or diversify her interests, including her background. Her main obsessions were; power, genocide, revenge and supremacy of the Houkai, these ambitions were so strong that it could literally define Sirin's character.
It was noted that Sirin was no different from any other tyrant in paranoid fear of an individual rising against her because of her own obsessive actions; her greatest fear was not being killed but losing that power. For her death was a failure but dying with that power would mean she at least tried but losing that power then dying is the great humiliation of all things as she would return to be the same weakling human she was before. In another ironic twist, this indicates that Sirin failed to make herself unique as she had the flaw of any evil tyrant.
Despite the fact that she usually maintained a calm, reserved and sophisticated persona, she was capable of phenomenally explosive and violent fits of rage. Her rage would often get the better of her, casting curses violently and screaming with fury whilst attacking the First Lawman and taunting his human weapons. She also roared with anger whilst duelling Fu Hua. When she experiences these mood swings, she would instinctively kills whomever she saw first, be their allies, enemies or innocent civilians.
Like her previous persona in her past life, she is rotten, selfish and unrepentant and was willing to even use her tragic past as weapon to break the seal of Kiana Kaslana, showing she was no longer cared about her experience and was now totally corrupted by power. Basking in luxury, turning the world into a post-Apocalyptic planet for her own self-satisfaction, creating wars for her own pleasure, thinking of her childhood friends and servants as nothing more than tools to be used, an aura conveying these feelings emanated from her.
She sees everything existing for her sake and loves to crush the memories, emotions and future of her victims purely because she loves the expressions on her victim's face when their friends and family are taken away from their arms. She also grossly overreacts to light wounds, annihilating and angrily attacking Walter for inflicting light cuts on her body, it's likely she's simply not used to getting hurt at all or hates feeling pain as she used to be tortured in the past and still consider pain as part of being human, a race she despises completely.
Another example of her sadism is shown when she started the Second Houkai War and spared the world for a time only because it amused her to have her minions and army kill the world's inhabitants in a twisted war game, she also never personally interfered whenever it looked like her army was losing, referring to it as a game and whoever loses simply dies, including her own most loyal servants, implying her darwinism where the strong lives and weak dies; but she refuses to be put in the same category as she is no longer a human but a Goddess, a divine being like her are not restricted to mortal bounds. When Benares returned with Agata's corpse on her arms, Sirin cast her aside while calling her weak and useless, showing she had no regard for the lives of weakling, even if they are her family.
Despite all her negative traits, Sirin was shown to have a realistic psychological trace of real-life human beings; she is capable of love and regret, implying she still sane at the time she became a Herrscher. Unlike many other Herrschers, Sirin slowly fell into the depths of villainy after experiencing many differents events that altered her point of view of the world, becoming the example of an innocent human being who was forced to see the true colors of the humankind (similar to many stories of war criminals from World War I, World War II and Vietnam war). She first discarded her love for her friends, her affection for her village, for mother's memories, her care for the world and finally mankind itself when she saw what people got while she was suffering.
Even after her total downfall to villainy, she can still feel love, affection and show value to life of innocents and animals, but she consider such feelings to be hopeless, useless and the reason of her suffering so she started to call herself "Houkai" to become the monster/Apocalypse mankind fear so much so she can "share" her misery with all human beings and force them to understand what she had to endure.
Even during the 2nd Houkai War, when she experienced the love of a heartwarming family Sirin doubted about her actions and showed regret for everything she did for a short period of time until she remembered that was a false world of happiness. Seeing the world in a different angle, Sirin saw the beauty of human civilization and had secondary thoughts of letting the world live so she can have a new life where no one is hurt. In the imaginary world, she went as far to live like a normal girl until she realized it got in the way of her plans of revenge on mankind and decided to destroy such world, kill everyone who experienced such life (calling them to be fools who never saw what the true world is), deeming them to be unworthy of such happiness because she never got to have their peaceful life as evidenced in her quote about Kiana and finally expressing her selfishness and envy for people born in good condictions while she was born in a place of hunger and poverty.
At the time she got used to destroy people's happiness, love, future, hope and memories, Sirin had already fell to her inner darkness but even after her complete transformation, Kiana's father Siegfried Kaslana tried to give her an opportunity to start a new life but rejected his offer to become the complete monster she was meant to be.
Equipament - Keys of the Void
Herrscher of the Void uses two pistol as her weapon of choice. It's a guided weapon system summoned from the Void Realms by the 2nd Herrscher upon awakening in the real world after 16 years dead. The pistols are based in Kiana Kaslana's original pistols.
These dual pistols do not fire bullets, but "commandments" that tear through the space-time fabric. K-423 is the perfect vessel designed by Otto for receiving the Herrscher of the Void when she returned. However, this vessel exerted a strong influence upon the powers of the Herrscher and altered her physical form as well.
According to Herrscher of the Void, she doesn't like these guns and prefer to use her own hands and energy to fight.
Power and Abilities
Herrscher Gems (Ruler Cores/Stones)
Gem of Death - Silence of Death
The Gem of Death has the ability to create and destroy any living creatures, be they humans or animals. However, it comes with a price, one must understand the true meaning of death otherwise the gem will revive only the corpse of the person but not the soul. To revive a corpse, one need at least a material or objects (such clothes, photos or anything related to that person) to revive their physical bodies.
Seele Vollerei only had the stigmata of this Herrscher (years after Sirin's death) but it's unknown if she could fully control it.
Using the gem, Sirin can kill any living thing she desires. This power some times seems to be uncontrollable, causing it to burst out randomly in the form of a black gas, killing anything within a certain radius around her as shown with Bella's arrival in Russia. Its power can be used by touch, at a distance or simply willing it to happen. It can also manipulate death-force within the Herrscher in a way that allows them to shape the exhaling of the effect. These shapes can include bursts, streams, spheres, even a mist of it from the nose or mouth.
At times, it can emit a field around the Herrschers that kills every living thing that is in it (animals, humans, plants). The Herrscher may be able to decide what dies and what lives, or at least train to do so. As shown with Bella, one can avoid being killed by the black mist if they use gas mask.
When the 2nd Houka War broke out, Sirin revived three of her childhood friends and gave Bella the Herrscher of Death. She was one of three Babylon experiment resurrected by Sirin and was given the gem "Silent Death" and was ordered to destroy in Novosibirsk, Russia to bring more power to Sirin. Her arrival in Russia caused the imminent death of 9 million people. On February 16, 2000, she was killed by Otto Apocalypse after he tried to convince her to revive his love interest, Kallen Kaslana but discovered she didn't possess the Gem of Death.
In Moon Shadow comic Kiana was infused with 6th gem, lost consciousness and got controlled by Sirin for a short period of time. Using the only gem she had in her possession Sirin tried to destroy Singapore but was defeated by the S-Valkyrie Fu Hua.
Gem of Lightning - Domination of Thunder
The gem of lightning, also known as Dominion of Thunder have the control over lightning to an unlimited level. She can create, shape and manipulate electricity, a form of energy resulting from the movement of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), allowing control over electric fields, all charge carriers (Ions, Electrons, Protons, and Positrons), electronics, and electromagnetic forces. Her ability also allow her to manipulate electromagnetic fields includes "electromagnetic field surrounding her body" and "electromagnetic pulses that destroy chemical bonds within the molecules".
She is able to manipulate light, heat and kinetic energy. A better explanation would be that she is able to harness the power of electricity, but since most of the powers of Houkai are based of commonly found matters in nature (e.g. fire, wind), the 'Lawmaker of lightning' is one of the most simply Ruler Core.
With the Gem of Lightning, she can manipulate all forms of electricity dwelling in all matter as charged particles. With the power over electricity existing in all matter (charged particles), she is able to control all matter in its state of form such as gas, liquid, solid and even plasma by controlling the electrons, protons and more that constitute all matter. Since everything is matter then this would permit the Herrscher to control everything by that theory. She may be able to use the charged particles to generate streams of electricity at her control.
Currently, the Herrscher of the Lightning is using Raiden Mei as her new host. After the young Mei was possessed by Herrscher of the Lightning, she was sealed by her father Ryoma. Because of its immense power, she couldn't freely manipulate the power of the thunder and had her personality split in two: the human personality and the Herrscher personality.
Her powers are stated to be in Apocalyptic-levels and can easily destroy an entire country in less than a day with insanely powerful lightnings, as well as shutting down all world's electric power plants.
Gem of Empty Time-Space - Ruler of Emptiness
Her first and original Gem. She Gem of Empty Time-Space, is a void space manipulation, used to create imaginary spaces for attack and defense. Her power is unique for being able to control two elements of the universe: space and time, and allows her to create an ideal fluid, converting actual space into her own void realm. For better words, she is capable of creating her own dimension and opening dimensional wormholes.
She open multiples portals to transfer people and other objects to anywhere in the globe. However, the transmission requires physical strength and it's very tiring if the physical strength and stamina of the Herrscher is insufficient for long-distance transmission. However, once Sirin received more gems she was capable of summong dozens of dimensional portals at the same time and could easily open hundreds more without losing stamina of vital force.
She can also open several portals and transfer enemy attacks to anywhere she dires. She can transfer attacks any enemy to different environments, such as the sea floor, the ground, etc., or she can simply transfer them back to let her enemies to suffer damage from their attacks.
For defensive methods, she can create an imaginary screen layer in front of her to block enemy attacks. The limit of this barrier is said to increase according to the HW (Houkai Watts). The form of this shield appears as a light blue diamonds screens.
Gem of Wisdom/Logic - Ruler of the Knowledge
The Gem of Wisdom was originally the core of the First Lawman, Welt (Walter) Joyce. Welt Joyce was the first lawmaker in current civilization. He was one of the founders of Anti-Entropy alongside Einstein, Tesla, and Planck. In the Anti-Entropy visual novel, Welt Joyce was revealed to be responsible for the destruction of Berlin in 1952 after becoming a Herrscher. He suffered from amnesia after the incident. Schicksal organization later captured him to perform various experiments for 3 years before transferring him to the Imperial Research Institute Lab 42 in London where Einstein and Tesla were situated in and met him for the first time.
After his death, the Anti-Entropy created two clones of Welt, the two had a notable strength but were too psychotic to act like their original leader. After their death, Joachim Nokianvirtanen renamed himself to "Welt Young" and became the new First Herrscher of the civilization to carry on his name as the leader of Anti-Entropy years before the ascension of Sirin as the Second Herrscher. During the Second Houkai War, Sirin killed Welt in combat on the moon and ate his gem, granting her the powers of the First Herrscher.
After fully understanding the "interpretation" of a thing, the first Herrscher can use their wisdom to reproduce material things with their own power, including altering their appearance. This kind of reproduction can even become a kind of "muscle memory" - but it has been copied by the first Herrscher. The "blueprint" of the material or "thing" will be preserved and copied by the First Herrscher to be more efficiently used next time the power is used.
When the first Herrscher reached Master Reproduce Mastery, he can cast some skills without even needing the weapon on the hand (even if it's the God Key, aka, Core of the Ruler, as long as they know how it works and how it can be used, it can be reproduced easily).
Even even though Sirin gained his powers when she ate his gem, she couldn't control his Star of Eden weapon and the 9th Key of God. The only she could use from him was his logic and knowledge powers.
Gem of Flames - Contamination of Flame
The Herrscher of the Flames was an ancient Herrscher that represented the symbol of destruction in the Old World, 50,000 years ago but was rescued by God Kiana once the world ended. She had the ability to control molecular movement, in other words, the element of fire and heat. She was most powerful physical destructive Herrscher that turned the entire Australia into a sea of fire in just one week after her birth. Later, she was killed by Kevin and the core was made into Judgement of Shamash.
The Judgment of Shamash was a key that was built from the powerful Core of Destruction of Herrscher of the Flames. It was so powerful it was needed to be split into two. This gives one form of the Key, the Dual guns known as Judgement of Shamash. The two guns can be placed together and they will morph into the Greatsword of Shamash with altered abilities.
The Herrscher can create, shape and manipulate fire, the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products, flame being the visible portion of the fire. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fire's intensity will be different.
She can also cause burning pains and actual burns in others, in some cases their skin burns and injures others touching them, or in worst cases, create a fire of sea that can burn an entire town in seconds.
After Sirin was given the gem of flames, she gave part of its power to one of her revived childhood friends, Agata, one of the three Babylon experiment resurrected by Sirin. Her gem possessed the ability of the Fire Herrscher of the Old World but was weaker compared to Sirin's original power. Afata was ordered to destroy in Astana, Kazakhstan to bringmore power to Sirin.
On February 16, 2000, during the 2nd Houkai War, at the junction Aral Sea, Agata was defeated by the S-Valkyrie Fu Hua from Shicksal and her corpse was recovered by Sirin.
Gem of Wind - Crave of Storm/Eager Storm
After forming a pact with the Houkai God, Sirin also gained the Gem of Wind, also known as Lord of Desire. With the Gem of Wind, Sirin was capable of creating blades of wind, sharp enough to cut entire buildings in half like a paper. However, its strongest point is the total control over wind in one single point, creating a powerful tornado.
She can create, shape and manipulate air; the common name given to the layer of atmospheric gases and various compounds (mostly oxygen and nitrogen) surrounding the planet Earth that is retained by Earth's gravity, and wind, movement of air relative to the surface of the planet. It is an important factor in determining and controlling climate and weather, and the generating force of most ocean and freshwater waves. Wind occurs because of horizontal and vertical differences in atmospheric pressure, and include breezes, squalls, gusts, whirlwinds, zephyrs, gales, tempests, and hurricanes. Since air cannot be seen by conventional methods, neither can the attacks and derivatives formed by/from it, making it an invisible and versatile weapon that is very difficult to block and dodge.
Controlling wind, Sirin is also able to manipulate the weather to her free will. However, she is never shown using her wind powers. Instead, when the 2nd Houkai War began she gave a fraction of her powers to Aphota, one of the three Babylon experiment resurrected by Sirin and was ordered to destroy in Oulu, Finland, to bring more power to Sirin. Because of Aphora's status as Pseudo-Herrscher, her abilities were considerably lower than Sirin's but was strong enough to create a legendary and destructive tornado that wiped out most of the country, killing tens of millions. On February 16, 2000, Aphora was killed by the S-Valkyrie Cecilia and saved the country.
After Sirin's defeat, her Wind Core was captured by Anti-Entropy and was fused in another person, causing the 4th Herrscher to destroy half of New Zealand. Years later, Wendy, an A-Rank Valkyria, and also Theresa's best student and had a high potential of becoming a S-Rank Valkyrja, was controlled by the will of Houkai and became the 4th Herrscher of the Wind.
Sirin is the second ruler of the current era and she was the second lawmaker that had complete control over her abilities for now, like Walt. Her power allows her to create an ideal fluid, converting actual space into her own void realm. It also includes creating sized portals for attacking, defending, or both simultaneously as demonstrated by Sirin inside of K-423.
After her death, her core has been divided into four parts, some of those parts had created the third ruler Raiden Mei (Domination of Thunder), daughter of the CEO of Massive Electric and the fourth ruler Wendy (Crave of Storm), a brilliant A-rank Valkyrja that had high potential to be an S-rank but later got taken over by the will of the Houkai and became a Ruler.

Last Words (dialogue - Old World)
|“||Houraji: You can go now. Sirin. Close your eyes and sleep forever in the abyss of the oblivion because the world will go on without you. So my friends can finally rest in peace, so this world may be in peace forever. So may all people you hurt can finally go on in peace.
Sirin: To think after years of work, my revenge failed. I lost to this ugly world... This is not what I wanted!
Houraji: You choose this path. Now you'll die alone and regret for all your in the oblivion, for all eternity.

List of Victims
|Victims of Sirin and Herrscher of the Void|
Nightglow (God Kiana Vs. Murata Himeko - Final Battle)
- Herrscher of the Void is often called "God Kiana" (as she's based on God Kiana of Guns Girl Z) and "Salty Tuna" because she's only available through Expansion Supply and she's very powerful. In the fanbase and inside of the studios the term "salty" is often used as meme and becomes official by the studios that months later released a series of online parody 4koma comics based on the game published by a miHoYo staff member. One of the most laughable comic parody is Taste of a Liar from Jojo Bizarre Adventures.
- One of her nicknames, "Complete Monster", is oddly similar to the famous Complete Monster (Pure Evil in Villains Wiki) trope from the TvTropes website. However, the translations of each country tend to be different from the original source, explaining why her nickname was altered to such name. For example, in the original source she is self-called "Apostle of God" while in the translations she is self-called "Follower of God" or "Will of God" as Chinese's language have many Hanzi with the same symbolism.
- Compared with the data in the record, the rebirth of the Ruler appears to be more silent and cold, but it is only because she has not been able to adapt to the new body after she has experienced a long sleep. Sirin's soul has not changed, when she completely controls the dominance of this body, she will once again become the same crazy and arrogant Void Ruler.
- Kiana Kaslana, Herrscher of the Void's new vessel, has been shown to have noticeable homosexual tendencies. She blatantly shows affection for her fellow Valkyrie, Mei and when her father, Siegfried Kaslana's, lecherous behavior is described by Theresa, she mentions being "jealous" presumably because she also would enjoy similar activities. It's unknown if Herrscher of the Void is attached to some of these traces. At one point, she can be heard saying she is "interest in only girls", which may be a dark counterpart of Kiana's love for girls. While Kiana has homosexual traces for girls, Herrscher of the Void may be saying she has only interest in torturing and killing girls. It's debated if it's in a sexual way or a simply a gender preference.
- The name "Sirin" comes from a famous Slavic mythology story. Sirin is a mythological creature of Russian legends, with the head and chest of a beautiful woman and the body of a bird (usually an owl). According to myth, the Sirins lived in Vyraj or around the Euphrates River. These half-women half-birds are directly based on the Greek myths and later folklore about sirens. They were usually portrayed wearing a crown or with a nimbus. Sirins sang beautiful songs to the saints, foretelling future joys. For mortals, however, the birds were dangerous. Men who heard them would forget everything on earth, follow them, and ultimately die. People would attempt to save themselves from Sirins by shooting cannons, ringing bells and making other loud noises to scare the bird off. Later (17-18th century), the image of Sirins changed and they started to symbolize world harmony (as they live near paradise). People in those times believed only happy people could hear a Sirin, while only very few could see one because she is as fast and difficult to catch as human happiness. She symbolizes eternal joy and heavenly happiness. The legend of Sirin might have been introduced to Rus' by Persian merchants in the 8th-9th century. In the cities of Chersonesos and Kiev they are often found on pottery, golden pendants, even on the borders of Gospel books of tenth-twelfth centuries.
- Because of her name "Sirin", it's implied she is actually half-Russian and Siberian.
- It's speculated she may be German thanks to her catchphrase "Ich Liebe Dich" (I love you in German).
- At the time she became a Herrscher, she was 14 years old. Chronologically, 16 years after the end of Second Houkai War, she should be 30 years old by now but since she is sealed inside of Kiana's body, who turns out to be a teenager, her current age biologically is 16 years old.
- Elsa the Snow Queen's design of the 1995 animated film Snow Queen where she was portrayed as a villain rather than a heroine like in Frozen from the Disney's animated 3D film. The concept of both good and evil Ice Queen were heavily based in Elsa. In Kiana Kaslana's case, her outfit was designed from Elsa from the 2013's Frozen film (a more lighty and soft dress with lighter colors. Even the skin's name, Winter "Princess" drawn Elsa's status as "Princess" of Arandelle. On the other hand, Herrscher's skin is darker and more sophisticated, covering more of her skin unlike Winter Princess' dress that exposes more of Kiana's body to a sexualized point. The name of the skin, Winter "Queen" also known as "Frigid Empress" is based in the old villainous concept of Elsa from the 1995 animated film Snow Queen and from Christian Anderson's 1844 Danish fairytale, Snow Queen, the original version of the Snow Queen where she is portrayed as the monarch/Tyrant of the ice lands.
- The fact that Kiana and Sirin have the same skin is probably a mention to Disney's counterpart that transformed the villainous Elsa in a heroine of the 2013 Frozen.
- The old concept of Herrscher of the Void's Frigid Empress was even more similar to the 1995 film to the point it was like the skin was ripped off from the film itself (although there were some cut and alterations in the dress for fanservice purposes). For unknown reasons, the old skin was discarded and was reworked to a new and original design. Some speculated the skin was remodeled to avoid copyright violations.
- Herrscher of the Void's name was altered three times since her introduction in Guns Girl Z. At first her name was Selina but her name was altered to Celine at the time she showed up in the Chapter 5 of the game. In the prequel 2nd Lawman her name was changed to Sirin. The reason is speculated to give her a proper name for someone who was born in Belarus, on the borders of the Soviet Union.
- Due to her high-body count and long list of atrocities, she considered to be the most evil villain to ever appear in Chinese mobile games in China's history but thanks to her detailed story-arc, attractive physical appearance and complex personality, almost the entire Houkai Impact's fanbase loves her, considering her to be the ideal malevolent but lovable villainess all players deserve.
- Aside from that, the game became even more popular in the West at the time her short OVA came out. The original video got more than 20 million views and the game won 5+ million new players thanks to Herrscher of the Void's introduction to the game in less than a year. Many players stated to be playing only to see Herrscher of the Void.
- Herrscher is a German term for Ruler.
- According to many players, since Herrscher of the Void was released in the game, many players stated she was too overpower, so much that she won another 4koma comics showing her mere presence in the servers slapped the other characters' states.
- From all antagonists of the franchise, Sirin is the villain with the most well-written character, most complex personality, the most famous female antagonist in the series and has the longest comic book where her background is explained in details. At the moment, her prequel comic book has 57 chapters and is ongoing since 2017 while Otto Apocalypse had only 15+ chapters and Herrscher of the Erosion had 14 chapters (combined with GGZ manhua and Secret of the Divine Keys comic book).
- In-universe, Sirin/Herrscher of the Void is considered to be the most evil, dreadful and dangerous Herrscher to have ever existed in New World for starting not only but two Apocalypses, destroying human civilization more than once, dragging the entire planet to a bloody war, destroying the whole Siberia and North Russia in her void realm, summoning millions of new types of Houkai creatures onto the world and putting 1/3 of the planet underwater thanks to the impact of her meteorites in the Mariana Trench. She was feared so much that people refused to admit she may be alive somewhere and states humanity should move on and leave her in the past. By some, the mere mention of her name is considered a taboo and prefer to say "the one who started the Second Houkai War" or "the Herrscher". Her true name was never mentioned in-game. This could a reference to Lord Voldemort's character.
- Herrscher is the character with the highest number of MMD videos to date in Asian fanbase of Honkai Impact 3.
- Many of Sirin and her Herrscher futuristic counterpart's quotes are altered according to the translations of each country. In Chinese version of her first quote in the OVA she says: "Humans, your existence is a mistake. War, cheating, jealously, greed. You once made me lose everything. But now I'll devour everything. Because I am the Houkai." but once it's translated to Japanese her quote is altered to: "Crumbling. The existence of humans is a mistake. I will devour everything because I am broken".
- Sirin's most notable trait are her yellow cross-pupils. Curious enough, these pupils appears whenever she takes over Kiana's body, marking her presence there. However, in the comic book Moon Shadow those pupils never appears in Kiana's eyes when Sirin dominated her mind--and she acted much like Sirin's arrogant, aggressive, vicious and sadistic personality while her awakening in the Chapter 5 (The Will of Herrscher Arc) of the game she was more cold, emotionless and aloof and had the cross-pupils since the first second she awakened again. This could be only a minor error on the part of the company or a primary stage of her possession.
- The KR and Global version of the game lacks the "touch the valkyrie on the home screen" feature, which, among other things, makes the achievement of raising their affection level difficult. The original CN server also loses it after a patch. While the SEA and JP servers still have it, a patch makes touching their chest or groin area not increase the affection level (even if they still react). Also, starting with the release of Herrscher of the Void, any newly released Valkyries will not come with the ability to touch their body.
- Curious enough, Herrscher of the Void is the only female character to continue acting like a vicious and arrogant Goddess even if the affection for the captain is in 100%. Players questioned why she continues to be same evil and heartless character despite her "love affection" for the captain is at max level. The answer was obvious: "Herrscher of the Void is a void, devoid of all love and compassion". The only thing that may count as affection coming from Herrscher is when she refers the captain as "partner" and invites him to play a killing game with innocent lives.
- New updates gave Herrscher more sexual appeal or at least a less aggressive personality. When her affection level is 100% and the captain touch some part of her body she will say something like:
- "This is my first time. At least be gentle with me".
- "If you insist so much..."
- "Oh. You're so interesting. How about you become my new pet?"
- Combined with all antagonists of the franchise, Sirin has the highest body count ever, with more than 7 billions lives under her feet. If one were to combine her previous body count of her past-self, God Kiana, those numbers jump to 17+ billions.
