|Kira at the Gelfling Ruins.|
|Family:||Ydra (foster mother)|
|Behind the Scenes|
|Appeared in:||The Dark Crystal|
Kira, a Gelfling by birth, survived the Garthim attack on her clan due to her mother placing her as a baby into a hollow tree just before she was killed. Kira was taken in by the Podlings and raised by her foster mother Ydra, and lived life being one with nature and appreciating its wondrous beauty. Accompanied by her pet and sidekick, Fizzgig, Kira's insatiable thirst for adventure is sparked when they stumble on Jen in the forest and learn of his mission to restore the Crystal and bring their world to its proper order once again.
Kira is also an excellent singer, is multi-lingual, and is deadly with a sling.
An example of foreshadowing is seen in the picture at right as Kira takes a seat on the throne in the ancient Gelfling ruins, since she will become queen in the upcoming sequel, The Power of the Dark Crystal.
