"I felt I had to do something to make it all right! It just made my blood boil to see all those people in such pain..."
— Kyra after being saved by Chaz

Kyra Tierney (Japanese: シェス・ティアニー, "Shess Tierney") is a playable character in Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium. She is an esper and as such is able to wield true magic. Like all espers, she resides in the Esper Mansion on Dezoris. She is known to make rash decisions and is often described as a daredevil by other espers.

Biography

When a terrible plague hit the town of Meese, Kyra went along with some other espers to help the ill. By transferring some of her life energy into the patients, she and the other espers were able to prolong but not save their lives. She was angry that she could not do more to help.

Kyra is first mentioned when a panicked Esper yells for help, saying that she struck out on her own, intending to destroy the cause of the plague and save the townsmen. However, she is overwhelmed by the forest of carnivorous trees that surround the Tower, and is rescued by Chaz and company when they try to help, but ultimately are forced to retreat.

Back in the Ice Digger, she introduced herself. When discussing how to get past the trees, she suggested that they asked Lutz, leader of the espers. She revered Lutz, but was disappointed to find out that Rune was in fact the inheritor of Lutz's legacy, believing him to be an insensitive jerk.

During her travels with the group, Kyra looked upon herself as sort of a big sister to Chaz.

After Defeating the second Dark Force and leveling the Tower, Kyra left the group and returned to Meese. There she helped the recovering plague victims to get back on their feet. She was particularly annoyed however by Raja, who kept telling bad jokes while in recovery.

When the Profound Darkness opened a gate into Motavia, Kyra and Raja traveled to the Dezolis Spaceport to lend a hand. She is one of the five optional characters that the player can choose to help fight the Profound Darkness.

After the battle, Kyra returns to the Esper Mansion on Dezolis.

Abilities

Kyra begins the game at level 27 (155,036 XP).

Kyra has roughly average stats across the board. Although her technique and skill lists resemble Rune's and Hahn's, and her mental stat growth is above average like Hahn's, she has slower TP growth than they do. She has more strength than Rune and Hahn do, however, so attacking with slicers is a viable option to conserve TP.

Kyra has access to all fire and gravity attack techniques, and some healing and status recovery techniques.
