Sands of Destruction (“World Destruction: Guided Wills”) is a hand-held role-playing video game developed by imageepoch and published by Sega for the Nintendo DS. It was released in 2008.

The story revolves around a young man, Kyrie, who possesses the power to destroy the world, though he does not know why. The female lead is Morte, a member of a group that is trying to destroy the world.

The game takes place in a fictional world ruled by anthropomorphic beings known as Ferals (Beasts in English dub of anime). Humans live as slaves, and a group dubbed the “World Annihilation Front” (World Destruction Committee in English dub of anime) intends to destroy the world in rebellion. They are opposed by the Feral’s “World Salvation Committee”.

Kyrie Illunis (Kirie Irunisu?, Kirie in the Japanese version) is the male protagonist of the series, a mild young man who is skilled with knives and cooking. He possesses a mysterious destructive power, which makes him a subject of interest to the World Destruction Committee/World Annihilation Front. Kyrie is the Greek word for ‘Lord’. He has a crush on Morte; his love for her is his main drive for joining the Front. He confessed to Morte that he loves her when Naja kills him, and the latter returns his feelings when she resurrected Kyrie from the dead. The two share a kiss in one of the final scenes of the game. In the anime, he is a rather cowardly young man, but is occasionally pushed to be brave. He enjoys cooking and had worked at a local restaurant disguised as a Feral before Morte showed up. He is later revealed to be the Destruct Code and has ever since existed when the world came to be. Kyrie’s power activates when he detects someone with a very strong desire to destroy the world (i.e. Morte). Similar to the game, he also has feelings for Morte, but not as apparent as his game counterpart. Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese); Todd Haberkorn (English), Evan Wood (English game).

Morte Asherah (Morute Ashera?, Morte Urshela in the anime and Morute in the Japanese version) is the female protagonist with a troubled past. Morte wields an enormous blade as her weapon. She is a member of the World Destruction Committee/World Annihilation Front, and is bent in destroying the world for the most part in both the game and anime. Morte is the Latin word for ‘death’. Although Morte only sees Kyrie as her tool in destroying the world at the beginning, she realizes how important he really is to her after Kyrie’s apparent death. Upon receiving information that Kyrie could be resurrected, she became dedicated in bringing him back, and when she accomplished the task, she returns Kyrie’s feelings to him. In the anime, she possesses a black sphere from her deceased brother, Reve Ursehla. The sphere is thought to be the Destruct Code, an artifact that is capable of destroying the world and reducing everything to sand, but in fact it is only a medium for the real memories of the Destruct Code. She is gruff and hard to deal with by others, and at multiple times, has tried to persuade Kyrie and Taupy to leave her. Although Morte was the one who proposed to end the world, she begged Kyrie to seal his powers when she activated him. She is shown to have some affection for Kyrie in that particular scene.
