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.

According to Líf in Chapter 12, the Kiran from an alternate universe was killed by Hel, but not before giving their Breidablik to Líf before "he" was succumbed to his wounds by Alfonse to give that other Breidablik to Kiran. With those two Breidabliks, the Order of Heroes may have found their solution to defeat Hel once and for all.
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'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.
