She is the captain of the ship Grishend. She is a feared and powerful pirate in the seas of the Island Nations and a bearer of the Falcon Rune. A former acquaintence of the Pirate Brandeau, Lino En Kuldes, and Elenor Silverberg, she helps the Island Nations beat back the Kooluk Empire. Though officially an outlaw, Kika is known not to pick fights and is acquainted with Lino En Kuldes. She is a level headed figure and strong ally who helps Lazlo's forces retake the Island Nations and fight back the Kooluk forces.
A tall woman with a slim yet firm build and a masculine grace about her. She wore blue trousers, white gloves and a short red jacket which revealed a complicated tattoo emblazoned on her lower back. Long light reddish-brown hair that parted at the center of her face, her eyes were filled with an intense fire. She wore a pendant that was adorned with some sort of bone that hung between her breasts.
Suikoden Tactics (Prelude)Edit
Not much is known about Kika's past before she becomes a pirate. In her youth she used to travel with the infamous pirates Brandeau and Edgar. The three of them all grew fearsome reputations in the Island Nations and garnered much respect and admiration.
The three had a rivalry with the infamous pirate Steele, which finally reached its zenith when Edgar and Brandeau met Walter, Kyril, and their Investigation team and chose to help them battle Steele. In the aftermath of that conflict, Kika lost the two people most important to her, Edgar to dying from Steele's use of the Rune of Punishment, and Brandeau to being cursed by the rune.
She is no friend to the Kooluk Empire, however, she aids Lazlo and Lino's forces, bringing her ship to Island Liberation Navy forces. Kika suggests that Lazlo meet Elenor Silverberg in order recruit the tactician to their cause. Kika stays near Lazlo due to the Rune of Punishment he used, which had previously belonged to Steele and Brandeau. After the war, she continued to live her life as a pirate and she later meet her end on the high seas.
In the aftermath of the war, Kika once again encounters Kyril and his Investigation Team when Roget and his forces attack her home to get information from her. Remembering the devastating power of the Rune Cannons, Kika joins Kyril in his search for the cannon's origins and travels to the Kooluk Empire to destroy them once and for all. After the fighting end, Kika along with Dario, Nalleo, Hervey and Sigurd went back to the Island Nation and continued their lives as pirate.
Role in the GameEdit
Kika joins automatically upon landing at the Nest of Pirates and asking her to work together with you.
Kika is a powerful and fast fighter who starts with the Falcon Rune and one open slot. While Kika does have a high affinity with Lightning Runes, she has low MP growth and her magic skills are not as good as a dedicated mage would be. Instead, maximize her strength with a Double-Strike Rune, which will amplify her strength and increase the lethalness of her Falcon Rune.

Sorry... Forgive me.
Sorry, not now.
Kyril can't send her on a mission.
- As a bearer of the Falcon Rune and an unconfirmed student of Roundier Haia (the master and teacher of Falcon Style Fencing as of Suikoden V), as that would be technically impossible - lest Roundier Haia is immortal or doesn't age normally; many fans have come to theorize that either Kika is one of the students of one of Haia's ancestors or may have even possibly been its founder, although more prefer the prior as no other bearers of the rune fight with twin swords. Regardless, the majority of the fan community agrees that the Falcon Rune and its legacy got its start out in the piracy circles of the Island Nations.
