The Kiryu twins are the youngest known girls to have performed the Crimson Sacrifice at about eight years old and are seen dressed in dark grey kimonos witg greyish skin and long black hair hiding most of their faces. But what really sets them apart is that [[spoiler:one of them is a life-sized doll, created for the surviving twin to help her cope but it became possessed by a spirit that compelled her to murder her father]].
