Of course. I will wash away all the sadness that rains down upon you. I shall take the pain that pierces through you, as well.
Like many others, Kiria is a player participating in the beta test of 4 Goddesses Online. She met †Black Cat Princess† in another game, and often seeks her approval, but she's often ignored.
Her reflexes are excellent which lend to her incredible gaming skill. She's often known in other games as "The Black Knight," and is a highly ranked player in several titles.
Kiria resembles a boy at first glance. She has spiked black hair with light blue coloring in various spots, accenting her cold blue eyes.
Her attire is mostly covering, composed of a black jacket accent in turquoise on the torso and several straps and accents of silver. The coat tails have dull blue coloring on the inside, while her sleeve cuffs are rolled up to reveal white coloring and black lining. She wears a pair of denim pants with a single strap hanging from each hip, and around her neck is an indigo cloth held with an ornament.
Cheetah has a tall bipedal cheetah body. She wears a black skintight clothing that covers the arms but not the palms of her paws, majority of the legs but the sides of her knees and sides of her body . The clothing has a large collar which is cyan on the inside. On the back of Cheetah is a device that creates blue segmented hexagonal patterns. Cheetah also wears a metallic futuristic belt which holds some other rectangular devices. She wears ankle high dark boots with metallic heals and soles.
She's also a bit of a show-off. At her core, she's a good, hardworking individual who's talented at gaming. She can be a little too honest, though. Sometimes, this allows others to take advantage of her kindness.
In Logi Mountain, †Black Cat Princess† and Kiria sees Neptune fall down from a cliff. †Black Cat Princess† thinks Neptune has bad gaming skills. Kiria says she won't catch anyone but †Black Cat Princess† as she is the angel that fell to her side.
In Yiear Forest, †Black Cat Princess† and Kiria are trying to get the second Sacred Treasure. Black Cat Princess† notices a group of players and wonders if they have seen there before. Kiria thinks so but tells her to pay them no mind.
One of the players comes up to them. She thinks it is impressive that they made it this far with just 2 people. Kiria cuts her off stating there is no time for her and urges †Black Cat Princess† to go ahead. †Black Cat Princess† knows it is dangerous but relies on Kiria's protection. Kiria promises to wash away her sadness and take her pain. The two leave. The two defeat the boss, obtain the Sacred Treasure and wait for the group of players.
They arrive and †Black Cat Princess† notes they took their sweet time. Another one of the players thought they were lucky and passed the couple but they got here first. Kiria brags that they didn't just get here first, the two of them defeated the boss and they have the Sacred Treasure as proof. †Black Cat Princess† thanks Kiria for her hard work and making her happy. She wants to reward her for her faithful service and asks what she wants.
As her faithful servant, Kiria says her words eternally reward her soul. †Black Cat Princess† just loves how Kiria is. Kiria promises to be with †Black Cat Princess† forever. Another one of the players wonders what business the princess and her knight has with them. Kiria has no business with them other than bragging and laughs. †Black Cat Princess† wants to go back to shop. Kiria apologizes for boring her and asks to be her escort back. †Black Cat Princess† agrees.
Later in Wishuel, Kiria runs into †Black Cat Princess† and is happy to see her before noticing that †Black Cat Princess† is crying. She asks her what happened and to hold her head high as such a look does not suit her. †Black Cat Princess† explains that she had a small request that was ignored and the person that they were requesting was cold. Kiria gets upset that anyone would not listen to her princess. She gets angry that anyone would harass her princess.
†Black Cat Princess† tells her there is no need to blame anyone. She is fine. Kiria thinks the princess is being very gallant. She will follow her for as long as she lives. †Black Cat Princess† thanks Kiria.
In Oneiro Corridor, the couple is seeking the third Sacred Treasure. Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† notices the group of 8 players in the distance. Neptune decides to greet them and notes that they havent't introduced themselves yet. Neptune introduces herself but she realizes that it doesn't matter as players can see each other screens. Neptune reads Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†'s name. She praises them for being sweet names. Vert tells Neptune that the symbols in the princess' name are not crosses but daggers. They are only decorations so Neptune does not need to pronounce them. Neptune still likes how cute the crosses are and overall it shouldn't matter.
†Black Cat Princess† is glad that Neptune understands her naming sense. Kiria notices that CPU uses the name of the Goddesses of Gamindustri. †Black Cat Princess† also notices that their appearances are the same. She asks if they are impersonating them. The four Goddesses decide to discuss this between themselves.
†Black Cat Princess† is amused that CPU even imitates the way the Goddesses talk but she notes they need more research to roleplay as them. For example, the real Lady Neptune is much squishier and cuter. Neptune wonders if she be offended by that statement. At least she is cute. Noire guesses that could be the case but she did call Neptune a cheap knock off. Neptune gets upset as she is the real one. Kiria tells them dressing up is fine but warns them not impersonate as the Goddesses.
Besides the other Goddesses are completely different. For instance, there are rumors that Lady Vert is a online game junkie but there is no way for someone so busy to be playing so many games. Vert explains that it is a simple task for a Goddess to balance work and play. Kiria thinks the real Lady Noire would have more aura and the one in front of her is just a cheap cosplay. Noire is shocked that she would mention cosplay but asks the couple ever saw any of the real Goddesses in person or are they just big talk. Kiria admits that she saw her in a national event in the distance only.
Kiria apologizes but asks CPU to let the two of them to go. They are a bit busy. Vert stops them and purposes that they work together to clear this game together. The other Goddesses favor this alliance. Kiria thinks this is a foolish question as she has no intention of wielding this sword for anyone but the princess. †Black Cat Princess† finds this a wonderful suggestion. Kiria is shocked. †Black Cat Princess† explains that she is a sickly girl at birth who can't do anything without other's help. In addition, CPU does look strong especially Vert the Enchanter. †Black Cat Princess† wants to be her younger sister.
Vert tells †Black Cat Princess† this is a little too sudden. †Black Cat Princess† implores Vert. Vert protests as being an older sister is different from being just sisters. †Black Cat Princess† pleads with Vert not to say such terrible things. She wants Vert to spoil her like a real younger sister. Kiria voices her firm disapproval against this and brings up the fact that she promised to protect her.
†Black Cat Princess† thinks its fine as in the previous game, they were in a guild that held a lot of members surrounding her. †Black Cat Princess† admits it was dissolved in the end but still Kiria was a member of that guild so what is Kiria really saying. Kiria tries to saying something but †Black Cat Princess† deduces that Kiria is jealous and finds her adorable. Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† that she acts like an angel but agitates her heart like a devil. Kiria admits that she wants to monopolize the princess for herself, she will go through fire and to the limits for her affection. †Black Cat Princess† understands the problem of being so loved. It caused their previous guild to come crashing and now it makes Kiria burn with jealousy. †Black Cat Princess† admits that she is a sinful woman.
†Black Cat Princess† admits it can't be helped and understands how Kiria feels so for today, she agrees to her request. Kiria is glad that she won't be giving up her role as the princess' herald. †Black Cat Princess† apologizes to Vert for today and asks for attention the next time they meet. Vert understands.
Nepgear goes up to Kiria and notices her equipment is really high level. She asks if she can see her sword. Kiria shows it to them. Uni is impressed with the mechanical component in her weapon which is rare in this world. Nepgear is glad Uni sees how special the weapon is. Kiria knows how to take a compliment and asks if they would like to see a demonstration of her combat style. Nepgear is really excited to see.
†Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria there is no need to accommodate them so much. Kiria apologizes as she can't help herself. They have stayed for too long and they must hurry to the boss as soon as possible. Uni is sad as she wanted to look at the sword longer. Kiria says she will save it for next time, she can't give up the position at the very top after all. †Black Cat Princess† says her goodbyes to everyone and the two leave.
At the end of the dungeon, †Black Cat Princess† wonders why her attacks work on the boss. Kiria tells the princess she will hold the boss of and she should escape. †Black Cat Princess† can't possibly abandon her. Kiria tells the princess she won't be able to forgive herself if the princess were to fall. †Black Cat Princess† guesses it is okay to leave.
The 8 players arrive and Neptune calls for them and wonders if they are okay. Neptune tells they will take it from here and asks them to stand back. Kiria does not want them to steal their kill as they already weakened it significantly. †Black Cat Princess† agrees even if its them, she cannot allow them to take this from them. Vert assures them that they would never steal a kill. At this rate, the two of them would pass out. Wouldn't it be advantageous for them to work together. †Black Cat Princess† still can't accept this. The larger the group, the less experience there is to go around.
Noire understands and CPU will sit out. She asks them to hurry and do something about the boss before it knocks them out. †Black Cat Princess† does not know what to say to that. Kiria understands the situation and will swallow her pride and urges the princess to borrow CPU's strength. †Black Cat Princess† admits it is unavoidable but still wants to have the final blow. Kiria swears on her love for the princess that she'll... Neptune urges CPU to Nep the boss up.
The 8 players defeats the boss and everyone acquires the Moonstone Hairpin. Ram is glad they were first this time. Neptune reports that if there are 10 people in first place then that means the next person is 11th. Blanc wonders who is counting. †Black Cat Princess† is upset that even the final strike was taken from them. Kiria apologizes but that just angers †Black Cat Princess† even further. She lashes out at Kiria and accuses CPU of gloating therefore being horrible people before leaving. Kiria follows after her. Neptune wonders why they are leaving so soon. She was hoping to a victory toast together.
†Black Cat Princess† and Kiria are taking their leave from the ruins. †Black Cat Princess† is supposed to be the world's heroine so how could she lose to such two-bit players. This is so annoying. Kiria asks her to calm her anger as such an expression does not suit her lovely face. †Black Cat Princess† already knows that she is beautiful and she will not stand the fact that they are behind others.
Kiria praises her for being a supreme existence. She promises that she will obtain the treasure first and offer it to the princess. Kiria knows the princess' face is hidden in this sadness and she will cause her smile to bloom. †Black Cat Princess† says Kiria can say that but those 8 players have grown way stronger since they first met. Kiria says that she has taken this into account but they have also grown at the same pace. Before Kiria can continue, she notices someone watching them.
The mysterious person appears and is glad that the two of them are so energetic. †Black Cat Princess† wonders what this mysterious person wants. The mysterious person explains that they overheard them and as a gesture of good will, they thought they would show them a handy tool. Kiria tells the mysterious person to get out of here, there is no way the two of them would lend their ear to such a suspicious offer. †Black Cat Princess† asks Kiria to wait and tells the mysterious person, she doesn't know what this is all about but her attention is piqued. Kiria calls out to the princess. †Black Cat Princess† tells the mysterious person that if this isn't a stupid joke, she wants to see the tool then they will talk.
In Wishuel, Kiria is brooding, she feels like something bad will happen. A familiar voice interrupts her thoughts. The voice is calling for Kazuko. Kiria is shocked and wonders if this is Asuka. Asuka is glad that she has the right person, as Kazuko did mention that she was playing this game. Kiria asks Asuka to not use the open chat. Afterwards she regains her composure and tries to deny that she is Kazuko. She has no idea who that is. Asuka knows it is Kazuko because of Kiria, Kazuko always uses Kiria. Kiria can't say much to that.
Asuka now realizes why Kiria feels uncomfortable. She cannot say her real name as that is personal. She is a klutz sometimes and apologizes to Kiria. Asuka explains that a friend was able to get her an early-access ticket so she could play but Asuka has no idea how to play. Since Kazuko has been so good at games since grade school, she asks Kiria to teach her. Kiria knows that the two of them are childhood friends and Asuka is not a bad person but she's a normie who lives in a different world. She has bad gaming skills and sticking with her, would likely end up with Asuka leaking all her personal information. Her image would be ruined. This is all her fault for bragging about early access.
†Black Cat Princess† arrives. Kiria is surprised the princess has returned so early. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria she finished her errands early. She came to see Kiria's face but the princess notices the woman and asks Kiria who she is. †Black Cat Princess† finds her cute and wonders if she is a friend of her. Kiria tells her she is not, she is a stranger that thought Kiria was someone else. †Black Cat Princess† wonders if that really is the case. Kiria grabs the princess' hand and urges her to go hunting with her in a high level place where beginners cannot bother them. Kiria says goodbye to the stranger she does not know. †Black Cat Princess† asks her not to pull.
Later, Kiria shows up and notes that the princess just left her side again. Still Kiria likes the mischievous side from her but... Kiria notices that the princess is crying and asks what is wrong. †Black Cat Princess† cries and tells Kiria that she is depressed. She asks Kiria to comfort her. Kiria comforts her and asks if Uni is bullying the princess. She warns Uni if she keeps that up, she will report her for harassment.
Uni gets upset and tells Kiria she has got it all wrong. Firstly, the princess started if all by bothering Noire and... †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria it is alright and decides to log off. Kiria wonders about the date they were going to have together, mountain climbing. The princess is so cruel yet so innocent in the way she tests her love. However, her feelings do not matter, as only she can currently mend the princess' heart. Kiria decides to gather her a bouquet of flowers and her most heartfelt present for when she logs in again. She departs looking for materials for a necklace, †Black Cat Princess† wanted.
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† are in Yiear Sea of Trees to get the Sacred Treasure. †Black Cat Princess† thinks they should try out that item. Kiria knows there is no point in asking but is she referring to *that* item. †Black Cat Princess† says that she is and wonders why she has to spell everything out for Kiria. Would she die if the princess didn't do that. Kiria wonders if it just her but the princess' language has gotten coarse.
†Black Cat coughs. She explains that her heart is constantly wavering and she is just lonely. She can't help it but rely on Kiria. Because she trusts Kiria, she can show her the real Princess. †Black Cat Princess† urges Kiria to stay by her side. Kiria would never leave the princess and hearing those words is an honor. There is no need to hide her true self, as Kiria promises to always accept her.
†Black Cat Princess† is glad and asks her to bring out that item. Kiria does so and a group of monsters appears. Kiria warns the princess to watch out. She will handle it. †Black Cat Princess† is glad a group of test subjects showed up and orders Kiria to show them how effective the item is.
Kiria uses the item to attack and is amazed by her hit count and damage. She describes the feeling as strong rapids, surging waves, destiny and power is flowing. More monsters arrive. Kiria thinks they are moths attracted to a flame. †Black Cat Princess† wants her turn to use the item. She attacks using the item. Kiria is amazed as the princess performed a triple jump, quadruple jump and triangle jump.
†Black Cat Princess† wonders if she really did that. Kiria tells her she undoubtedly did. †Black Cat Princess† is impressed with the unity of her controls and her characters' movements. A tailwind is beginning to blow in their direction. †Black Cat Princess†'s ambition of being worshiped by all is near.
Later in the dungeon, Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† see the 8 players having trouble with the boss. Kiria notes that they meet again. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and remarks that they are in a pickle. Vert tells the couple to be careful that the boss does not wipe them out. It is a quite a difficult event.
Kiria laughs and cannot believe that she will be wiped out. †Black Cat Princess† also laughs. Noire gets upset as they are genuinely concerned with their safety. Kiria apologizes for being rude and tells them to sit back and watch this round. †Black Cat Princess† tells them those that stand in their way will end up like this. The two make short work of the boss.
Neptune is surprised they were able to defeat it as she thought that boss fight was unwinnable. Was all they had to do to knock that thing out was raise their level? Kiria reports that this should do it and they have obtained the Sacred Treasure. The two of them will be going on ahead. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and leaves them with a parting gift.
Back in Wishuel, Asuka calls for Kazuko and wonders why she won't answer her. Kiria is not happy that she is calling her again. She already told her school not to talk to her in game. The existence of Kazuko is a mistake itself as Kiria is her true self. Asuka wonders why she is not allowed to talk to her but gets an idea. Kiria receives a private message. The message title reads "I'm not talking to you! This is fine, right?" Kiria thinks it is much better as other players can't see this.
Kiria then receives several more messages. The first message title reads "Was the girl with you before your friend?". The second message title reads "Introduce her! Let's play together!". The third message title reads "Right now, I'm searching for the first Sacred". The last message title reads "Treasure. I'd like it if you could help." Kiria wonders why she is messaging like this where the body is blank and the title is the message. Kiria thinks this is like a grandma getting a phone for the first time.
Kiria receives a lot more messages. Asuka wonders when Kiria will respond and laughs. Kiria knows she has to do something about this quickly.
Later, Asuka calls for Kazuko but corrects herself calling her Kiria. She points out that Kazuko does not look like herself in real life. Kiria wonders why she would correct herself only to still use Kazuko in the end. But to answer her question, Kiria tells her they are in a virtual world so it does not need to be reality.
Asuka admits that Kiria's hairstyle is similar to Kazuko but her chest in real life is much bigger. In addition, as Kazuko does wear guy clothes a lot, Kiria's attire also matches that. That being said, girly clothes would totally suit Kazuko.
Kiria tells her that Kiria is her ideal form and asks to leave her be. Asuka points out there are people in this world that are unfortunate to suffer from not having enough chest. Kazuko is indulging in quite the luxury.
At the confessional in the Cathedral, Sister Maria asks the next person to enter. Kiria greets Sister and knows it is brusque of her but she wants to tell Sister of her troubles. Kiria realizes that she is being rude so she asks for permission to confide in Sister. Lately her girlfriend has become very cold to her. Her heart feels worn from all this. Kiria may call her a girlfriend but lately she is beginning to feel that only she sees it that way. Also, they haven't actually met up in real life and she knows how that sounds. However, Kiria's girlfriend has told her before how cool she was. In the past Kiria's girlfriend even told Kiria that she loves her.
Sister tells her not to worry about something so trivial. The closer people are, the less people tend to say things like that... or so she's read. Also Sister tries to clarify, when Kiria says girlfriend, she is talking about a future spouse right. She is worried because she wants to take their deepen their relationship. Kiria begins to stutter and couldn't possibly think about that before running off saying she has had enough of the confessional for one day.
†Black Cat Princess† and Kiria appear in Yiear Sea of Trees to see the 8 players defeat the boss and obtain the Emerald Mirror. Kiria has a pained expression. Neptune is happy to see the couple and notes they have not seen each other in a while but she was thinking about them here and there. Last time things got pretty messy with that monster. Neptune asks if they have been doing alright.
†Black Cat Princess† assures Neptune that they are. In fact there isn't a fragment of a possibility of them losing to someone else so her worry is needless. In fact it isn't her damn business. Neptune notices the grim expression and asks †Black Cat Princess† if she is feeling okay. Noire finds it weird that they are wondering around a dungeon they already cleared. Blanc is sure they are just going to gloat in their face again.
†Black Cat Princess† agrees with Blanc, as they need to learn that she is much greater than them all. In fact she is going to beat this knowledge into their bones. Neptune understands people can get heated when they are being competitive but that is no reason to not be friends. †Black Cat Princess† laughs as she declares that she is supreme in this world and there is no one who can compete on her level. She asks if they don't understand that there is a wall between a princess and a common player. They cannot overcome it.
†Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria that to try out the new function of the tool now. Kiria does not feel right using it on actual players. †Black Cat Princess† tells her to stop grumbling and do it already. Kiria understands and will do everything for her sake. The two use the tool fusing the two and transforming them into Cheetah. The 8 players cannot take this seriously and they begin to poke fun at the form.
†Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them not to laugh as their tool could not change how they look. It is not their fault. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them that they should really watch their mouths. The two of them aren't going to be so kind like before. Kiria in Cheetah tries to reason with the princess as she does not think this is a good idea. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells Kiria to shut up and just control the thing. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah declares that they are truly unparalleled in 4 Goddesses Online and releases a burst of electricity.
Rom and Ram tell Cheetah to stay back. Neptune tells them to look alive. They should stop staring and start fighting. Neptune assures that it will work out, asks that it will work out and hopes it will work out. Alright, Neptune leads the charge against Cheetah.
CPU defeats Cheetah and their body begins crumble. Grim Reaper arrives and takes Cheetah away.
Elsewhere, †Black Cat Princess† throws a tantrum on how much the 8 players have gotten on her way. Princess declares that she has not lost yet and will rise from the ashes like a phoenix. She no longer cares for the story and as long as she has the tool, the power of the Goddesses is nothing.
She predicts that the players will be coming to Chrono Wasteland next. She plans to plant monsters there to beat them all up. †Black Cat Princess† wants to have them and the Goddesses grovel at her feet. They will recognize her as the True Queen. the true ruler of 4 Goddesses Online. At this rate, the game title might as well be changed to †Black Cat Princess† Online and †Black Cat Princess† laughs.
Kiria calls out to †Black Cat Princess†. †Black Cat Princess† wonders what Kiria wants. Does she have a problem with what †Black Cat Princess† is saying. If so, then †Black Cat Princess† threatens to leave Kiria. Kiria tells her not say that but refuses to be dragged into her pace. She collects her thoughts and urges the princess to end this. This isn't the kind of game where players should fight one another especially with cheats. It is only a matter of time until the GM finds them. Kiria thinks they should surrender while they still have the chance.
†Black Cat Princess† can't believe this. She tells Kiria to think before she speaks. They have gone too far to back down and have run miles around the GM's security. Soon they will control Cheetah's power properly. There is no problem at all. Kiria tells the †Black Cat Princess† that is not right. They can't cheat anymore. Kiria loves †Black Cat Princess† and that is why she must stop her. Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† to throw the tool away at once.
†Black Cat Princess† refuses and tells Kiria her hands aren't clean about this either. Kiria knows and she regrets being unable to stop her from using the tool in the first place and regrets cheating. Kiria offers to assist †Black Cat Princess† in challenging the 8 players fair and square. †Black Cat Princess† gets mad and tells her that is not what she wants. †Black Cat Princess† accuses Kiria of not listening to her. Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† that she cares about her and that is why she but the princess cuts her off.
†Black Cat Princess† tells her to shut up and accuses Kiria of being a coward. She decides to use the tool on her own. †Black Cat Princess† transforms into Cheetah but its body is still damaged from before and †Black Cat Princess† is in pain. Kiria asks the princess to stop as anymore of this and she'll... †Black Cat Princess† notices that she hasn't moved yet and yet there are gross displays on her screen. †Black Cat Princess† notices that her admin privileges have been revoked.
Kiria knew that toying with such a tool was bound to have consequences. Kiria tells the princess to hold on as she, her knight of love will swing her sword of love. Kiria attacks Cheetah with Nova Catastrophe but Cheetah blocks her attack. Kiria is stunned. Cheetah says goodbye to the foolish and counter attacks. With a single hit, Kiria's health is in the red zone. She is stunned by this and Cheetah is impressed that she would survive his strike. It doesn't matter as this will be over soon.
The Mysterious Person returns and scolds Mr. Cheetah for overdoing it. The Mysterious Person does not approve of Cheetah bullying weaklings. Cheetah apologizes. Kiria remembers the Mysterious Person from before. She accuses her of deceiving both her and the princess. Kiria promises to punish her. The Mysterious Person does not understand. She allowed Kiria to have her fun and she'd appreciate it if they didn't try to claim that they were victims. Nevertheless, she was able to gather plenty of data for her tool. Thanks to that, Cheetah is able to operate independently. The Mysterious Person tells the two she is done with them and they are dismissed.
Kiria asks if that was her plan all along? The Mysterious Person confirms this and tells Kiria it is too late to do anything about this. However, Mysterious Person admits that she is grateful for everything Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† has done for her. If the Mysterious Person can tweak the AI to be a little better then a revolution could break out in the real world. Kiria gets upset and just wants her princess back. Mysterious Person forgot about the princess and apologizes. She decides to return the princess as she is extra baggage to Cheetah.
Kiria is glad that the princess has separated but now her in-game avatar is damaged. She asks the princess if she can hear her. Kiria gets no response. The Mysterious Person leaves with Cheetah telling him to not hold back and break this world so much that even the models won't load. Cheetah agrees to follow the Mysterious Person's orders. Kiria wonders how much more the two would insult them like this. Suddenly Kiria's display is acting up. She wonders what is this and apologizes to the princess that she would be her sword and shield. †Black Cat Princess† does not respond.
Some time later, both Kiria and arrives back in town with their glitched avatars. Blanc tries to heal Kiria's 1 HP, but finds she's unable to. Just as Kiria is about to explain everything, the Mysterious Person causes monsters to rampage, even in the town. Neptune and the others offers to help the GM to get rid of those monsters as the other GMs find themselves to be unable to clear the town. Neptune and the others depart after saying they will listen to Kiria's story later.
After clearing the monster, Neptune returns and finds Kiria's avatar mostly restored aside from her 1 HP glitch. Kiria then recounts, to both the CPUs and the GM, of what had happened after the Mysterious Person offers †Black Cat Princess† something. As the Mysterious Person hands them the tools, Kiria expressed worry of using it, however †Black Cat Princess† remarked that it would be fine and they wouldn't get caught. The GM thanks her for her explanation, and Kiria responds that she's ready to face consequences of their actions. Kiria explains that †Black Cat Princess† was logged out, but her in-game avatar remains. Due to her glitch, Kiria is unable to do much, and decides to log out and leave her avatar behind, entrusting the CPUs.
After dealing with Cheetah, †Black Cat Princess† finally logs in, saying that she got scolded for ruining the family console. Kiria expresses happiness at meeting the princess again. As Vert reveals that she's also †Green_Heart†, she's astounded and mentions that that player is someone so skilled and beats even the dual-blades wielder she admires, Kirio. However, as a consequence of using the tool, both Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†'s accounts are to be permanently frozen/banned. Kiria is surprised that it's all they got, as she thinks it would be worse than that. As they're ejected from the game, Kiria hopes to be able to meet †Black Cat Princess† in another world.
Some time later, Kiria notes that this city never changes. †Black Cat Princess† agrees as if anything changed, it was them. That's what she'd like to believe at least. Kiria agrees as the new access ticket they received from the admins means that the GM believed in them. They have to respond to their feelings. It is time for them to begin at level 1. She asks †Black Cat Princess† if she is ready. †Black Cat Princess† asks Kiria who she thinks she is talking to. There is no way Princess wouldn't be ready. They have to finish the tutorial and get the first Sacred Treasure. †Black Cat Princess† urges Kiria to go as she runs off. Kiria tells the Princess to wait as she follows.
Later, Neptune clears her throat and welcomes the player to the customary "Thank You for Playing" Corner. CPU and their friends, enemies and the Goddesses say a few words.
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† arrive and asks if they can have a word. Neptune is happy to see them noting that it has been a while. Kiria recounts how she stained her hands with cheats and caused a massive uproar and regrets those actions. She hopes the player never stray path and that's all. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and tells the player they were cool. She asks them if they will go on an adventure with a princess who has reformed. Kiria protests that.
Noire notes that even if they reformed, she guesses that those 2 will always act like that. Blanc thinks that should be everyone. Vert notes that if they were going to include everyone, they will have to bring out minor characters and the eggplant lady. They would not finish until sunset. Neptune agrees and they are just in time for pudding so she wants to end it here. Neptune concludes the Thank You Corner and tells the player to do their best and take of them from now on.
Later, Kiria makes an agreement with †Black Cat Princess† to go hunting together. †Black Cat Princess† is late, so Kiria to check out where she is. Kiria sees †Black Cat Princess† having a nice chat with a woman. Kiria arrives and worriedly asks who is that woman. †Black Cat Princess† is surprised Kiria is watching but her friendships are not Kiria's concern. She tells Kiria to escort her in their hunt together. Kiria agrees and asks †Black Cat Princess† to take her hand. Kiria wonders why she feels so uncomfortable. She hopes it is merely a baseless fear but...
Again, Kiria makes an agreement with †Black Cat Princess† to go hunting. Again, she is late, so Kiria decides to check out where the Princess is. She sees her with another girl having a nice chat. Kiria feels sad.
Again, †Black Cat Princess† is late, and again she is having a nice chat with another woman. Kiria sadly wonders why the Princess is doing this.
Again, Kiria sees †Black Cat Princess† with another girl. Kiria is sad, and resolves that she can't just sit still. One must give love freely but also take love for herself.
Later, Kiria is late. In her mind, she introduces herself as a knight with a mission to protect the Princess. However, the princess has been cold lately. She wonders how she can express the sorro in her heart? Perhaps, the winter rain, or an unrelenting cold wind. Kiria resolves to prove her love today. Kiria plans to bump into the princess around this corner. She reaches the corner to find a crowd running around.
Kiria wonders why there are so many people. It has never been this crowded before. Is this some sort of event? Adventurer C apologizes for bumping into Kiria. She explains it is easy to bump into people around this corner. Adventurer B thinks she better get used to it though as this is bound to happen with the size of this crowd. Adventurer S is not interested in anything but the fish right now. Adventurer K apologizes and explains that she and her friends are hurrying to the fish cutting demonstration.
Kiria realizes that those 4 are the people that †Black Cat Princess† are talking to. Adventurer K asks Kiria who she is talking about. Adventurer B urges her friends to hurry up. If they don't line up now, the fish is going to be gone. Adventurer C agrees with Adventurer B and tells Kiria if they run into each other later, they can talk then. Adventurer K tells her friends no to leave her behind and runs after them.
Kiria tries to stop them but there are too many people in the way. She wonders what is this event and where is her princess.
In the middle of Wishuel, Kiria recounts that she is the Knight of Love that lives sincerely and nobly. She praises the †Black Cat Princess† for being as graceful as a flower and for using the hearts of many. She is as free as the wind, never pauses and truly is the last angel fallen to earth. Kiria notes that she does not have wings of her own and that she is simply toyed around by the princess, but even then her love won't end.
†Black Cat Princess† arrives noting that she is late. Kiria says nothing. †Black Cat Princess† is surprised to see Kiria and wonders if it is her imagination but was Kiria lying in wait for her. Kiria is glad that †Black Cat Princess† came because if she was a little later, then Kiria admits she might not be alive. †Black Cat Princess† worriedly asks if something is wrong. Kiria is acting very strange. Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† she wants an explanation. Why is †Black Cat Princess† increasing her number of followers.
†Black Cat Princess† asks there is some kind of problem with that? Kiria says that is quite a large problem. Does that mean she is not good enough for Princess? Is she not a suitable cavalier and has she been discarded? Kiria concludes that if it has come to this then she will take those 4 down with her. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria to wait a minute and asks since when did she go all yandere on her.
Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† there is no point in being evasive, she is serious. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria to calm down as she hasn't even seen the 4 adventurers today. Kiria is confused. †Black Cat Princess† explains that in the end, they were more interested in other things besides her. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria she is the type of person who would refuse such people anyways. †Black Cat Princess† recounts that one of them was obsessed with a lonely tsundere and didn't even see her, another was too chunni, so †Black Cat Princess† couldn't communicate, another only had the brains for hunting and the last was just too stingy. It was extremely disappointing.
†Black Cat Princess† praises Kiria for really being her number one. Kiria is surprised that she is actually number one. †Black Cat Princess† admits she can't go on without Kiria. Kiria is glad but she admits she is embarrassed to hear her say so definitely. †Black Cat Princess† is glad Kiria is back to normal and asks her to continue to protect Princess. Kiria assures †Black Cat Princess† that she will.
Kiria is a very obvious reference to the main character of the series Sword Art Online, Kirito (AKA Kazuto Kirigaya). They both are Beta Testers, have similar looks, and have 'Kiri' in their name.
However, she is more of a close reference to Kashiwazaka Hiyori, a character from the Sword Art Online manga spin-off, Girls Ops. She admired and was inspired by Kirito to the point that she imitated his likeness, fighting styles and skills. She even got her avatar name, "Kuro", from Kirito's nickname, "Kuro no Kenshi" (meaning "The Black Swordsman"),similar to how Kiria got hers from Kirio.
