I will definitely take Nike back.

—Volume 003, Chapter 012

Kitora (キトラ) is Nike Lemercier's cousin. He lost his parents when he was a child, so he and Nike were raised together by Tohara.

When they were both young, Nike and Kitora were somewhat regarded as deviants in the royal family because neither of them could make rainfall.

Kitora himself gave up quickly; though he admires or perhaps more correctly adores Nike for being able to push through hardships in order to be able to summon rain.

It is implied that he has romantic feelings for Nike and that he was supposed to be her fiancé before she was married off to the Sun King.

Appearance Edit

Kitora is a lightly tanned boy about the same height as Nike. He also has dark green hair, that is almost black and reaches the nape of his neck. He usually has a frown on his face, but wears a gentle smile around Nike.

Personality Edit

Kitora has a serious, formal character, not being one for jokes or trivial conversation. This is to such a degree that he doesn't appear to socialize with anyone beyond Nike, their grandmother, and Livius, the latter of whom actually went to talk to him first.

He is also very protective of Nike to the point of agreeing to assist Nike's grandmother in erasing Livius's memories of Nike. He both respects and adores Nike, and detests Livius for taking her away from Rain Dukedom.

However, despite his own feelings for Nike, he was willing to let her go back to Livius after seeing how serious she was.

History Edit

Growing up, orphaned and unable to summon rain, Kitra was taken in by Tohara, his grandmother along with his cousin Nike, who also could not summon the rain. The two were somewhat regarded as deviants in the royal family because neither of them could make rainfall and they bonded over this, growing up together almost as siblings.

Though Kitra would give up, believing that he would never be able to summon rain, Nike would persist and eventually become the Rain Kingdom's best singer. This gained Nike an incredible respect from Kitra, slowly turning into adoration.

A few years later, Kitra would go on a journey with Tohara, leaving behind Nike. When they returned, they were stunned and furious to find that Nike had been married off to the Sun King as a "hostage" of sorts, saying that if they had been there they would not have given Nike over so easily.

Relationships Edit


Kitra is Nike's cousin, who was raised with her when his parents died. Despite Nike liking him as a friend and family member, Kitra has romantic feelings for her as he loved for more than 10 years, but has never acted on his feelings. However, that love is one-sided as Nike loves Livius.


At first, Kitra hated Livius for taking Nike away from Rain Dukedom, however when he realize how much Nike loved Livius he comes to accept their marriage. Although he comes to tolerate Livius, he warns Livius that if he ever makes Nike cry he will not hesitate to kill him.

Trivia Edit
