Kinoc is a [[Maester]] of [[Yevon]] and the commander of [[Bevelle]]'s army who oversees [[Operation Mi'ihen]]. He was once a [[Warrior Monks|Warrior Monk]] and good friend of [[Auron]]. Following Auron's fall from grace within the clergy, Kinoc took the promotion for second-in-command meant for his friend and rose to the title of Maester within ten years. However, though he gained wealth and power, Kinoc began to hunger for more while fearing of losing it. One of his exploits as Maester was the formation of an [[Crimson Squad|"elite" military force]] for [[Yevon]]. Prior to making himself known at the [[Mushroom Rock]] where [[Operation Mi'ihen]] was taking place, Kinoc assigned the candidates of his project to investigate the mysterious [[Den of Woe]] that has been closed off for a thousand years.
   
Following Auron's fall from grace within the clergy, Kinoc continued to take his place and within ten years, had risen swiftly to attain the title of Maester. Along with this title came a wealth of power, and Kinoc began to hunger for more, but feared losing it. One of his exploits as Maester was the forming of the [[Crimson Squad]], which ended in failure.

Overseeing Operation Mi'ihen, Kinoc is glad to see Auron who expresses his disbelief at his being made a maester. Noticing that Auron truly changed in the aftermath of Sin's devastation, Kinoc learned that all but three of his candidates and their sphere recorder mysteriously died in the Den of Woe and orders for the quartet's execution to conceal his failure.
 
Kinoc is first introduced during Operation Mi'ihen, where Auron expresses his disbelief at his being made a maester. After that, he and his Warrior Monks guard the [[wedding]] of [[Yuna]] and Maester [[Seymour Guado]] in [[Bevelle]] and try to shoot down the [[Fahrenheit|airship]], with Yuna's [[Guardian (Final Fantasy X)|guardians]] (including Auron) aboard, as they were trying to break up the wedding.
