Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE
Kiria is a chart-topping singer popular with young people. She simply goes by the romanized name "Kiria" as a singer and is a powerful Mirage Master. 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 Aoi and the others, often aiding them.
She's first seen in the prologue saving Itsuki, Tsubasa Oribe and Touma Akagi from an ambush and later invites them to her concert due to Tsubasa struggling with her lessons. When a Mirage attack happens she's quickly put out of commission protecting Tsubasa. After Ayaha Oribe (Tsubasa's older sister) 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 a duet with Tsubasa, but she 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.
