Profile

Rudolf's second wife.

She had already worked alongside him for some time before the death of his first wife, at which time she openly took the position of his wife.

She has served as Rudolf's right hand in several shady pieces of business, guiding them to success. She is quick-thinking and well-trusted by her husband.

Background

Kyrie had originally been in a relationship with Rudolf before he met Asumu. When he got her pregnant, he broke off his relationship with Kyrie and became engaged to Asumu. Kyrie was pregnant herself and her delivery date was the same as Asumu's. Furthermore, Kyrie has a sporadic diet, resulting in irregular periods; As a result, she was unaware of her pregnancy until well after Asumu had announced her own.

Kyrie believed that, on their delivery date, Asumu had given birth to Battler Ushiromiya and her own child was stillborn. Unbeknownst to her, however, Rudolf had swapped their children at the hospital in order to preserve his relationship with Asumu.

After Asumu passed away, Rudolf immediately remarried with Kyrie. While she is also Ange Ushiromiya's mother, Kyrie never cared much for Ange and instead saw Ange as a means of keeping Rudolf at her side.

Appearance

Kyrie appears as a woman with fair skin and short, white hair. She wears a long black coat over a long purple shirt, a belt, and a black tie decorated with a cross. Because she married into the Ushiromiya family, Kyrie is not allowed to wear the One-Winged Eagle on her person.

Personality

Kyrie is very vindictive, especially towards Asumu. Some time after Asumu's marriage to Rudolf, Kyrie had plotted to murder her, however Asumu died before Kyrie had the opportunity to do so. When she believed that Battler Ushiromiya was Asumu's son, she harbored a longstanding dislike for him simply because of his relation to Asumu. She is notably cold and calculating, especially in matters of business.

Plot

Legend of the Golden Witch

Kyrie is first introduced. She offhandedly mentions that Ange wasn't able to come to the family conference because she was sick.

When Beatrice's letter is read at dinner, Kyrie discusses with Battler the possibilities of there being a 19th person and teaches him chessboard thinking. Kyrie later becomes a victim of the first twilight.

Turn of the Golden Witch

Kyrie sees Beatrice arrive as a guest on the island and relays this information to the others.

Later, Kyrie and the other adults meet Beatrice in the chapel at night and acknowledge her existence as a witch. They then become victims of the first twilight.

Banquet of the Golden Witch

On the second day, Kyrie and the other adults try to solve the epitaph. Kyrie theorizes that there's wordplay involved in the solution.

Kyrie later goes to the mansion with Rudolf and Hideyoshi to retrieve food, and EVA-Beatrice summons Leviathan and Belphegor to fight them. Kyrie is barely able to keep up with Leviathan's speed, but after they establish which one has more envy, Kyrie manages to shoot down the demon stake with no effort.

Kyrie and Rudolf then regroup to challenge EVA, but they are killed by the newly-summoned Chiester Sisters.

Alliance of the Golden Witch

Kyrie and several others are captured by Gaap and sent to the underground prison in Kuwadorian. After escaping, the Chiester Sisters kill Nanjo, Kanon, Shannon, and Krauss and chase Kyrie into a guestroom.

She calls Battler and tells him to believe in magic and witches while also apologizing to him for her behavior over the past several years. Kyrie is killed during this phone call.

End of the Golden Witch

Kyrie convinces Rudolf to blackmail Krauss Ushiromiya for his money.

Dawn of the Golden Witch

Kyrie is chosen as Jessica's sacrifice for her love trial as a stroke of bad luck; Jessica had wandered the Ushiromiya Main Building and decided that the first person she ran into would be her sacrifice. The two have an extended conversation about Kyrie's history with Rudolf before Jessica attacks her. Similar to Banquet of the Golden Witch, Kyrie is capable of using her envy to move at a speed far greater than her opponent. However, Jessica manages to burn Kyrie to death after she locks herself in Krauss's study.

Twilight of the Golden Witch

Kyrie is the fourteenth person to pose a quiz to Ange Ushiromiya during the Halloween party. Like her husband, Rudolf, her puzzle centers around three girls: Miyoko, Satoko, and Rika.

Trivia

  • During her battle with Leviathan in Banquet of the Golden Witch, Kyrie's perception of time is warped by Leviathan's envy. Since Leviathan power is derived from her envy of her sisters, she could travel at the speed of sound. However, since Kyrie had been envious of Asumu ever since Battler's birth 18 years prior, her envy gave her abilities 938 times greater than Leviathan's.
  • Though she herself doesn't smoke, Kyrie carries a lighter so that she can light her husband's cigarettes.
  • Kyrie is skilled with lever-action rifles. She is the only person who is seen handling a rifle with one hand; every other character holds rifles using two hands.
  • Kyrie's name is derived from the Ragnarok Online Priest skill "Kyrie Eleison."
