Profile[edit | edit source]
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.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Kyrie is a tall and well-endowed fair-skinned woman with short white hair that has bangs swept to the right and onyx eyes. She wears a long black coat, a purple long sleeved purple shirt underneath with a black tie with a cross on it, black buckled belt, black pants and black shoes.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Kyrie is a cool, calm and collected individual who is also quick-thinking, logical and very analytical in different situations. She has a lot of pride in herself, which she claims to be her mistake that led to Rudolf marrying Asumu.
She has an extreme devotion and attraction towards Rudolf. She can be sly at times as she would get rid of girls who went after him and go as far as having a child with Rudolf to have him for herself. When she and Asumu were both pregnant with Rudolf's children (the latter who was married to Rudolf), she did not give up and wanted her child to be more superior than Asumu's to the point that she wanted her and the child to be acknowledged by Rudolf. Her love towards Rudolf may be what can be described as obsession, as she has also stated that she won't let anyone take Rudolf away from her and that if he wanted to, she would commit murder. However after Rudolf's death, she remained in her calm and usual self and saw it as an opportunity to start her life over. She admitted to have never loved Ange as Kyrie only used her as a chain to have Rudolf to herself.
She has a tendency to hold grudges, in particular with Asumu, who she believes stole Rudolf away from her. Even after Asumu's death, she hated her and to a certain extent, hated Battler; she was envious that Asumu could give birth and she couldn't. She eventually developed a brother-sister like relationship with him, though she only acted like this because it was the mature way to act towards Battler. She even claimed to not care if Battler died as he is not her son, but would let him live as she knew Ange would be sad.
When the gold was found and the murders between the siblings took place, she and Rudolf were the only ones who thought that the gold cannot be taken outside the island at that point and that the one billion cash card was the only thing she and Rudolf can use to gain a entire fortune. Because of that, Kyrie shows pragmatic behavior and sociopathic tendencies in not finding anything wrong with killing and enjoying it if she gains something and resolves her problems.
Skills and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Kyrie displays some proficiency in wielding Winchester Rifles.
Kyrie also has an incredibly high envy level because of the years of jealousy she felt towards Asumu for giving birth to Battler, thus any opponent who faces her will slow down to a crawl.
Background[edit | edit source]
Kyrie is a member of the Sumadera family, which was a sort of rival to the Ushiromiya family. Kyrie started to work under Rudolf at his company and started dating him, even when he was already married to Asumu. Kyrie eventually got pregnant and was prepared to give birth, however she suffered a miscarriage. Kyrie then developed extreme jealousy towards Asumu for being able to give birth, and this envy would last even after Asumu's death.

Role In the Story[edit | edit source]
Kyrie is first introduced. She offhandedly mentions that Ange wasn't able to come to the family conference because she was sick.
Kyrie later becomes a victim of the first twilight.
Her corpse was found inside the rose garden storehouse. Her face seems to have been smashed after her death.
She was chosen by the Demons' Roulette. That's all there is to it.
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.
Her corpse was found in the chapel. The direct cause of death is unknown, but it seems her stomach was cut open and her intestines pulled out after her death. On top of that, sweets and candies were packed into her stomach
And so, I give you the land of dreams. Happy Halloween.
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 shoots 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.
Died in the hall of the mansion, her stomach pierced by a stake-shaped weapon.
The stomach isn't a particularly lethal spot. Isn't it enough to just kill her in some other, easier way and stick a stake in her corpse?
While debating with Battler, EVA claims that she used mind-control to send Kyrie to the mansion. Battler investigates Kyrie's corpse to disprove EVA and discovers one of Hideyoshi's cigarette butts in her pocket, implying that Kyrie was suspicious of him and Eva.
She calls Battler over the phone and tells him to believe in magic and witches while also apologizing to him for being so envious of him for all these years. Kyrie is soon killed as Battler asks for clarification.
In the Tea Party, Battler investigates the island and inspects Kyrie's corpse.
Her corpse was found in a guest room deep within the mansion.
There was a single hole right in the center of her forehead. It's probably reasonable to assume she was shot with a gun or something similar.
A demon stake was buried in the hole in her forehead, but it's hard to imagine that this was the cause of death.
I didn't miss! I missed on purpose to tease her, nyeh...!
Alive by the time of the game's suspension.
During the love trial, Kyrie was targeted by Jessica. She received help from Leviathan, but was ultimately burned to death.
Erika later tries to examine her corpse.
Her corpse was found in Krauss's study.
Furudo Erika didn't perform a detailed examination.
It is later revealed that Kyrie joined Battler in faking her death and playing a prank, but Erika kills her for real.
Her corpse was found in Krauss's study.
Her neck was completely severed by a blade.
The most perfect kind of corpse, both impossible to mistakenly identify as dead and completely recognizable.
In the Tea Party, the adults solve the epitaph and make it to the gold room. Beatrice reveals her plans and leaves the adults to squabble over the gold, which soon ends once Kyrie picks up a gun and kills the others. She and Rudolf then head out to kill everyone else and convince Battler to join them.
Eva manages to survive the slaughter and kills Rudolf before encountering Kyrie in the rose garden. They stare each other down and aim their guns, with Eva emerging victorious.
Other Appearances[edit | edit source]
Kyrie is not playable, however she appears in Black Battler's SP2 attack.
