Kiki Seiran (木々・セイラン, Kiki Seiran) is a main character and a female protagonist, who is also one of Zen's close aides and Mitsuhide's partner. She has a quiet and serious personality. She was the second aide that was assigned to Zen, after Mitsuhide.
She has mid-length blond hair, which she normally ties up, and indigo eyes. She is of average height.
She wears smart and formal clothes, nothing revealing. She usually wears formally royal attire. She wears a sleeveless black top as an undergarment and black leggings. On top of them she wears a purple outer with Chinese styled collar, the outer has many gold embellishments. The middle part and the collar are darker, while the bottom part was splitted into 2 parts. There are 3 flaps of fabrics on the outer, and an attachment which held her sword. She wears long purple boots with gold embellishments. She wears a pair of metal protector on both of her hands.
Her sword's scabbard is dark blue, while the locket and chape are silver. The hilt is covered by bandages and there's an aquamarine colored jewel/stone on top of it.
She was seen wearing a dress twice, in a ball when they ( Kiki, Mitsuhide and Zen ) were younger and in a marriage meeting with Zen.
When she was 'captured' she was dressed as a poorer lady, wearing a knitted top and a shirt with her hair down. Later on in the series, she cuts her hair short again, reminiscent of when she first started out as Zen's aide.
In the anime, her hair is a lighter shade of yellow and her eyes are dark blue.
Kiki has a very stoic personality, which as noted by her father is just like her mother's. She rarely shows any other expression other than a disinterested one, and is an excellent swordsman. Only when she is in the presence of Zen, Mitsuhide or Shirayuki is when she opens up more. She is seen joking with them and smiling. When she first met Zen and Mitsuhide she was very closed off. She kept in her own business and was anti-social. Over the years of being together, she has opened up to them. She's also very stubborn about getting married, as her father has tried multiple times to set her up with someone, although she does admit later on that she plans to propose to Mitsuhide when the time comes.
Kiki has been Zen's aide for 5 years before they met Shirayuki. She is also the heir to being the head of the Seiran family, one of the oldest [noble] families in the Clarines Kingdom.
He works alongside her as Zen's other close aide. Like everyone else, she makes fun of him a lot, usually in a deadpan voice. Torou once thought that they were together, but Kiki casually denies this and says that he's free for the night. Later, he becomes angry that she'll be leaving the castle soon, as she kept the deal with her father on having a limited time to serve Prince Zen as a secret from him. They first met at a ball, when he ran outside to escape the crowd and exclaimed outloud that he did not do well with balls, Kiki was already out there and called him by his name. When he inquired how she knew his name and asked for hers, she told him that she would tell him her name when the time arose. This is because she wanted him to see her as a proper swordsman. The second time they met, he mistook her for a guy and invited her to take a bath with him and stay the night. She also mentions that she would be one to propose to Mitsuhide if needed, stating that she has feelings for him, though decides not to show it.
As one of the two aides to the second prince, Kiki is extremely close to him, and, along with Mitsuhide, accompanies him to almost everywhere he goes. A lot of times, she keeps Zen in check. Her relationship with Zen is not as close as Mitsuhide’s is; however she does share loyalty towards him. She, like many others, follows Zen because of other reasons besides his status which Zen is fully aware of and appreciates. She can act in an uncaring manner towards Mitsuhide at the time but she cares for him as well, even going as far as thanking him for his concern when she was 'captured'.
Earl Seiran is Kiki's father and head of the Seiran family. He is always looking for a marriage partner for her, describing it's his duty as the head to set her up with someone. He tends to have many arguments with Kiki, because of their contrasting personalities, but they seem to have a good relationship. He likes to be called Dad, but Kiki always refuses, calling him father instead. Count Lugis is an acquaintance of his. He exclaims Kiki's cold voice is just like her Mother's.
He's Count Lugis' second son, and pertaining the desire to raise his social status, he proposed to Kiki, wanting to be the head of the Seiran family. He decided when he was eleven that he would marry Kiki. He stalks Kiki when she first starts visiting Zen, because he is curious why her father refused the proposal. He challenges Kiki to a two on two duel in order to become her fiance, but he fails in the end, Kiki with Mitsuhide by her side defeating him and his partner and doesn't get to rise in nobility like he wished, this happened roughly five years ago
She's good friends with Shirayuki. Since they had first met, they have been friendly with each other. They have taken a bath together and normally talk about Zen.
She's probably the one who likes Obi the least, especially when he first appears. She had a hostile attitude toward him when he first officially became Zen's messenger, and wouldn't leave Shirayuki alone with him if it were up to her. However as the story has progressed she trusts him to be a body guard of Shirayuki and Zen's messenger without doubt and often rejects his teasing methods towards her.
- "He's the real thing, right buddy?" —Kiki regarding Zen, to Sakaki
- "I don’t mind. Even if it was to the point where I was referred to as male, and even invited to go take a bath together." —Kiki speaking to Mitsuhide
- "I thank you for your easily ignored and absolutely undesirable thoughts." —Kiki replying to Obi's comment about her hair being cut short.
- "You should go with her, before you start writing "Shirayuki" all over your papers." —Kiki replying to Zen, after he formally disagrees to spend time with Shirayuki.
