Kiran is mysteriously summoned by Anna. Though surprised by their appearance, Anna asks for their help to protect the Breidablik. Suddenly, they are ambushed by Embla soldiers and Breidablik reacts to Kiran, summoning a hero for help. Impressed that someone has finally been able to use the relic, Anna entrusts them to use its power to protect the kingdom of Askr from the invading Emblian Empire.
As a stand-in for the player, Kiran is indicated to be from our world. Upon describing where they came from, the other characters marvel at the ideas of skyscrapers and cars. Ephraim also mentions that Kiran has, at some point, said that the Breidablik, which looks like a pistol, resembles the weapons of Kiran's world.
Until Book IV, Chapter 2's release, Kiran made no direct appearances in game except during the cutscenes of the game, during Summoner Support events, and as a figure on the tap icon in Tap Battle Casual Mode.

According to Líf in Chapter 12, the Kiran from an alternate universe was killed by Hel, but not before giving their Breidablik to Líf. This second Breidablik is passed on to Alfonse and Kiran after Líf's defeat and death.
With the two Breidabliks, the Order of Heroes attack Hel head-on and are able to kill her, bringing her invasion of Zenith to an end.
Book IV Edit
Non-Canon Appearances Edit
Kiran is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:
Kiran might be derived from the Sanskrit word "kirana", meaning "dust", "thread", or "sunbeam".
Kiran could also be derived from the Japanese word kirakira, which means "shining" or "sparkling". This may have been inspired by the meaning of Kiran's Japanese name, Eclat, which is French for "[a] brilliant/dazzling display".
In Irish, Kiran (traditionally spelled "Ciaran") is a diminutive of the name "Ciar" meaning "black".
- Kiran's clothes and hood are similar to that of Robin from Fire Emblem Awakening.
- When Kiran uses the Breidablik for the first time, the hero they summon is fixed. Prior to version 2.5.0, the hero summoned was Virion. After the 2.5.0 update, the starter hero summon was changed to Takumi.
- Kiran is the only character in the Fire Emblem Cipher trading card game to have a card with no known emblem, gender, or weapon.
- Kiran's portrait first appears in Chapter III of Book IV (Gullinkambi).
- Their sprite shows them with grey eyes.
