|Why won't people just see me for who I am, and not for the colossally destructive weapons satellite I control?|

Merc Overview Edit
Her Orbital Strike calls a laser beam from the skies, perfect for dealing a lot of damage in tight areas. Can resupply ammo with a deployable station.
Kira’s PhD research led her to a SERIOUSLY classified device in one of her first Merc missions – an experimental weapon linked to a weaponized satellite. It wasn’t exactly hers to keep, but she figured her background in Cold War frequency-agile aerospace telemetry made her the authority. While several wealthy organizations are now out to kill her (not to mention the Mercs whose reputations she scuttled), her fascinating new link to the skies has sped her research tenfold. Science! Knowledge! Fire from the sky!
Kira’s devastating Orbital Strike is highly accurate, dealing a lot of damage in a very tight area. Also, she can steer her pet beam of destruction around the battlefield as it fires to damage multiple enemies - Perfect for clearing out defenses and campers.
Orbital Strike Edit
A highly focused beam sent down from an orbiting satellite, it can be redirected using her targeting tool traveling 7.6m/s and will quickly evaporate any enemies in its path.
Ammo Station Edit
A deployable station that can be placed almost anywhere on the field of battle. It will gradually resupply ammunition to nearby players over time.
Kira's Default loadout card is the S81 Expert Rifleman
Upon selection in full profile:
- I am Kira, nice to meet you.
Upon starting a match or deploying into a match:
- I'm happy to see you again
- You're not ready?
- Konnichiwa (/koh-NEE-chee-wah/; Japanese for Hello or Good Afternoon)
Upon using her orbital strike:
- Fire from the skies!
- Worship the pillar of fire!
- Fire support incoming!
- Laser light with deadly might!
- Prepare for illumination.
- Incoming fire support!
- From the heavens retribution comes!
- I'll light up your lives!
Upon deploying her ammo station:
- Get your ammo while it's fresh! I'm just kidding, stays fresh for years.
- For all your ammo needs? Me.
Upon killing an enemy player with a knife:
- Knives to meet you, to meet you, kniiveees!
- Tantō No! (/ˈtän(t)ō/ - 短刀; Tantō is a short knife blade)
- Too bad, so sad, you're dead to me, you're sashimi. (/säˈSHēmē/ - 刺身; Sashimi is very fresh raw meat or fish sliced into thin pieces) 
Upon being flashed with a Concussion Grenade:
- Such grenade, so concussed.
- I see cats with little hats.
- I see unicorns.
Upon being revived:
- Oh you're so cute(! wait), is that a side effect?
- -Gasp- Thank you Doctor!
- I feel genki, also genki, I feel genki and witty again!
- East Side!
- It is a great pleasure to see you again. Oh, wait. It's you. Hm.
- Why would I want to "kimonover to your place"? Ever? No, don't speak your thoughts. Ew.
- I've encountered tougher opponents wrapped in seaweed.
- It's immensely tedious to have to work with you.
- You are a source of deep concern to me.
- You speak much sense.
- Using the Quick Chat "Aww Yeah!" message (key combo V - 5 - 7) will result in Kira saying "Kawaii!" ~ /kəˈwī,ˈkäwīˌē/ (cute); This happens most of the time, but she may also say the universal "Aww Yeah!".
- In the E3 trailer, "Scrubs", Kira uses the SMG-9 submachine gun. Strangely, none of Kira's loadouts allow her to use the SMG-9.
- She, along with Sparks and Phantom, is one of the only survivors of the E3 Scrubs trailer. She is also the only one visibly injured as she gets shot in the arm (seemingly by Turtle).
- In the E3 trailer, "Scrubs", we see her get the Orbital Strike director as she steals it from a traincar (which can be seen in the map Underground) before using it to kill Turtle and Nader
- One of Kira's taunts is "Knife to meet you! To meet you knife!", Skyhammer also says this taunt.
- According to Splash Damage developer Exedore (thrmoptc on reddit) Kira is influenced by certain works by Katsuhiro Otomo, a Japanese manga artist, directory and screenwriter best known as the creator of Akira. 
- When Upon being flashed by Thunder's Concussion Grenade Kira will occasionally say "Such grenade, so concussed", which is a parody of the popular internet meme known as Doge. 
- During the Rogue en Vogue event, Kira was one of the suspects chosen in the fourth week, alongside Fletcher, Fragger, and Redeye.
