Story

Kirara ‧ Cat Upon the Eaves
Gold Level Courier of the Komaniya Express

Komaniya Express, the famous delivery company in Inazuma, has a very special employee working under them. At a glance, she resembles an adorably dressed teenage girl with two tails swaying behind her. Though she treats each of her customers with kindness and generosity, secretly she sometimes takes to running quietly across rooftops to ensure none of her deliveries arrive late…

Though her obvious nature as a youkai drew more than a few comments at first, as Kirara introduced herself with honesty and clarity time and time again while conducting her tasks with dutifulness and effectiveness, people not only dropped all lingering misgivings but even grew grateful for her presence. “Safe and punctual,” “service assured,” and “vivacious and adorable”… These three phrases are words most commonly used to describe Kirara on the feedback board. Word is that if you give her a five-star rating or offer her some snacks, you might even see Kirara’s face brighten with gratitude as her tails whirl with building joy.

To Kirara, her job is as precious as any jewel. She treasures everything about human society and is always overjoyed to behold the smiling faces of her customers. Thus, she gives her all to offer the best service she can for everyone she caters to. After all, if she finds herself fired by the company, all she can do is return to being a youkai in the mountains.

Thankfully, her boss at Komaniya Express had never even considered the idea of releasing her. Contrarily, they privately asked Kirara if she wanted higher pay and to transition into comparatively less effortful secretarial work, but Kirara rejected their offer with haste. She didn’t have the heart to tell her boss that, to her, every time she leaves to make a delivery, it feels like she’s getting to enjoy an outing at the public’s expense!

A courier who works for Komaniya Express, a delivery company in Inazuma. She has twin restless tails and is a nekomata who loves human society.

“Anything you need delivered?”


Voice-Over

None. As of version 3.5, there is no character that has ever talked about Kirara in Genshin Impact, with the exception of Yae Miko in Kirara’s announcement post.
