Little is known of this mysterious young woman. Recently becoming a member of the X-Men, only Magneto himself knows where she is from. She appears to have a relationship with the Silver Samarai and rarely speaks with any of the other X-Men.
Magneto seems to have complete faith in Kirika's capabilities as an X-Man, sending her on a secret mission alone to retrieve one of his greatest weapons. Why he felt she was perfect for this task has yet to be explained.
