“...I'm looking forward to your growth.”
Kiria is a famous twenty-one year old Idol Singer who receives a lot of support from young people, her stage name is KIRIA. She is a Mirage Master highly skilled in battle and partnered with Tharja. Her birthday is July 12. She’s also referred to as the “cool beauty,” but not many people know her personally and her private life is a secret. She’s a senior to Itsuki and the others, often aiding them.
She's first seen in the prologue saving Itsuki, Tsubasa, and Touma from an ambush and later invites them to her SIV-LIVE concert due to Tsubasa struggling with her lessons. When a Mirage attack happens she's quickly put out of commission protecting Tsubasa. After Ayaha is saved Kiria officially joins the team.
During her side quests, Kiria confides in Itsuki that she actually has a soft spot for cute things. She tried to hide her affections due to fear of being mocked as her imposing image wouldn't gel with being cute. At first she tries to kill her love for anything cute by attacking cute Mirages in the Idolasphere, but finds she's incapable of doing so. Tharja chides Kiria for being so insecure and tells her that she should be herself and not be petrified by others' opinions of her.
In her third side quest she's booked for doing a duet with Tsubasa, but is unsure of how she can act cute. Tharja then leads them to a pair of Mirage Golems she made called Bord and Cord which they'll practice charming. Unfortunately they're hostile and they're forced to fight them. Afterwards she tells Tharja that she finds her to be her ideal partner, making Tharja chuckle gleefully before teasing Kiria about her attraction to Itsuki.
Kiria has a stoic personality and is widely regarded for her "cool beauty." However, Kiria has a secret love of cute things; she reveals to Itsuki at one point that when she was younger, she was more open with her love of cute items and wanting to be seen as cute herself, but started to feel ashamed as she got older. Someone she knew made her feel bad about liking cute things, and so she tried to push them aside, leading to her "cool" persona.
Despite her cool exterior, Kiria still secretly loves cute things and keeps a mascot doll she calls Sir Gen. As she forms a bond with Itsuki through her side stories, Kiria becomes more open to expressing her cute side, eventually taking on the role of the cat-costumed Chloe in the late-night program "Absolutely Cute" and singing a cute-and-cool inspired duet with Tsubasa entitled "Give Me!"
As the oldest of the playable characters, Kiria serves as an upperclassman figure to Itsuki and the others, guiding them to their goals.
