Not a champion or a character that appears in every volume, Kira Grasdon still plays a major player for the heroes.  Throughout the series, she takes the role of Luke Callindor’s fiancee, Nyx’s childhood rival, Sari’s adult rival, source of transport, and occasional ally in battle.

The oldest child of the Grasdon Merchant Family, she is not able to go on the adventures, but finds herself pulled into the events as the prophecy gets closer to its finale.  Starting as another student at Hamilton Military Academy, Kira is not warrior material.  She is clumsy, whines, and complains to the point where people wonder why Selenia doesn’t expel her.  At least she appears that way since she is a ‘master of masks’.  After a rebellious early childhood, Kira learned to read people and become what they wanted.  Her most common facade has been that of a spoiled, bratty noble, which worked for the high class world she survived in.

Things change due to her romance with Luke Callindor and Kira changes the most out of every character.  No longer wanting to be what others want her to be, she crafts a new persona that feels natural and meshes with her fiancee.  Every appearance shows an evolved version and reveals that she has been maturing, which includes accepting the consequences of some of her bigger mistakes.

    Yay! She’s awesome! I love that she evolves.


    • She’s definitely become one of my favorite characters to use. Glad that I got her involved to some extent in later books. It wasn’t easy though. Her path really doesn’t match up with the champions too often, which put an interesting challenge on her relationship with Luke.

  2. Character evolution is awesome. It’s cool when a secondary character evolves to a degree too.


  3. Excellent profile of Kira.


  4. I really like Kira, I’ve got a lot to catch up on, of course, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read with her in it.


  5. I really must catch on with the series!!!
