    2) Kira's backstory -------------------------------------------------[KBS]
    Kira used to live in mountains of Afghanistan and was selling weapons to
    terrorists there. She was disguised as a man, but when terrorists found out
    that she wasn't they wanted to kill her/capture her. She fought her way out
    of there and soon was recruited by Kabal to be a part of Black Dragon clan
    as her survival from terrorists proved that she was worthy.
     Joining together with Kabal, they hope to make Black Dragon a much fiercer
    band and to cause downfall of civilization.

    3) Kira's Info ------------------------------------------------------[KIN]
    Kira's original skin/costume looks like this:
     o Red hair tied in twin ponytails
     o Black leather top
     o Red mini-jacket
     o Weird trousers with cuts on the sides and boots
    Kira's second costume looks like this:
     o Hair not tied in ponytails and just loose
     0 Black and red mini-top
     o Sexy red mini-shorts
     o Knife-straps with knives
     o Red boots
    To unlock Kira's second costume, simply step on a spider in a very first
    section of Konquest mode, even before you get to the first checkpoint. 
     After you stepped on a spider, a treasure box should appear. Kick it
    open and you'll get Kira's second costume.
    Kira appears in MK: Deception and MK: Armageddon.
    Kira has additional chains for fatalities. She counts as one of characters
    with short swords/knives.
    4) Kira's moves -----------------------------------------------------[KMV]
    Kira's unarmed fighting style is Yuan Yang. She stands on one leg, while
    another one is bent in the knee and sticks forwards. Looks a lot like
    Chameleon's Crane stance, with the exception that in Yuan Yang stance arms
    are stretched to the sides rather than up. When she moves in that stance
    it looks like she is dancing.
    Kira's weapons are Dragon Teeth. The Dragon Teeth stance consists of Kira
    in a relatively low profile, bent slightly forwards and holding her knives
    I've only played the PS2 version so all the controls will be for PS2. Sorry

    e) Specials ------------------------------------------------------------[SPC]
    These moves are Kira's specials. Unfortunately there's not many of them.
    G           - Aussie bulldog      - Kira grabs enemy by the head, spins
                                        around them, causing them to lose balance
                                        and to fall forwards on their face (7.5)
    Bck,Fwd+4   - Black dragon ball   - Kira spins in the air and hits an enemy
    Bck,Fwd+1   - Kiss of death       - A kiss that at a close range stuns an

    Dwn,Fwd+3   - Nightshade          - A low pink-coloured blast (6)
    4) Strategies ----------------------------------------------------------[STG]
    Kira, I think is a relatively fast character. Most of her moves follow one
    after another pretty quickly.
    Kira's best moves I think would have to be the long combos that finish with
    a knockdown, like Evil presence (4,4,Fwd+1), Ice fists (4,4,1,1) and Black 
    dragon tail (with dragon teeth: 4,4,4). They are the ones I would advise to 
    use the most often.
    Rising Dragon teeth move (2) whilst having Dragon Teeth out is a very useful
    way to get enemies up into the air nearby as it is very easy to input.
    One can say the same about Lifting leg (Up+3) while in Yuan Yang stance.
    Kira should be an ace against fast enemies as majority of her moves are fast.
    This means that it is relatively easy to perform a move before they do. I
    would advise blocking though as well.
    Against enemies with long ranged weapon, block a lot and also jump towards
    them with a kick. Also reaching out moves can work, like Tippy toe stab with
    Dragon Teeth (Up+3), or a roundhouse thrust (3) in Yuan Yangs style. Kiss of
    death special should be good to use too, so you can stun them before coming
    Against boss-like enemies parry and breakers should work well as most of 
    their moves are slow and easy to predict. Also jumping towards them with a
    kick works too. I would also strongly advise Black Dragon ball special. But
    do not use it too often, because if it gets blocked you can be in a 
    vulnerable position. Any other long and fast combos should be useful too.
    Against shooting enemies use a lot of 8-way run and blocks. Black dragon ball
    is a quick way of getting close to someone, so use it. They are not likely
    to shoot when you're close. Or you can use their way and shoot back at them
    with Nightshade special move. It is considerably good because it shoots low.
    For enemies that perform a lot of parries and breakers, keep on changing your
    attacks. Use combinations of low and high attacks, fast and slow attacks.
    This way they will find it harder to time their parries or breakers. Do not
    repeat the same attack unless it's a long-ranged attack.
