- "I'm not afraid."
Kairi is one of the main characters in the Kingdom Hearts series, and one of the three main playable heroes in Kingdom Hearts III. Sora and Riku's longtime friend, Kairi is a Princess of Heart and Riku's Keyblade Apprentice. When Riku is kidnapped and brainwashed by Darth Vader, Kairi must learn to fend for herself as she joins Sora to rescue her master. However, she must also deal with the even greater evil, Master Xehanort, who desires to extract her heart and use it to create a new X-blade.
To be completed
Kairi's personality is fundamentally the same as in prior games; soft, sweet, not afraid to speak her mind, and slightly dependent. However, after Riku is kidnapped, she tries to become a stronger and more independent person, and trains herself with the Keyblade. Despite this, she is still not as hardy as she wishes to be, and often has her moments of vulnerability and softness.
Kairi retains her abilities as a Princess of Heart from the previous games. However, after Riku is kidnapped, she becomes much more adept with the Keyblade, and teaches herself various magical abilities such as Flood, Tornado and Holy. She becomes an increasingly powerful user of light; however, as a Princess of Heart, she is unable to wield darkness despite being able to sense it.
Kairi starts out with the Destiny's Embrace Keyblade.
