Story[edit]

Before Kingdom Hearts χ[edit]

According to Chirithy, Ira was originally one of the six apprentices of his creator, the Master of Masters. He was assigned his name by the Master, and like the other four chosen to become Foretellers, he received a tome from the Book of Prophecies. Afterward, he established the Unicornis Union to battle the darkness while using his tome to draw power from the future in the form of Medals, in an attempt to avert the Keyblade War prophesied in the Book.

Kingdom Hearts χ[edit]

This information is based on alternate scenes or materials, and is only considered in continuity if the player allies with the Unicornis Union.

Shortly after the Player arrives in Daybreak Town, Foreteller Ira assigns a Chirithy to assist them and explain the current situation. Quest 1: Prologue

This information is based on alternate scenes or materials, and is not considered canon within the overall plot of the series.

In Kingdom Hearts χ, the Player is attacked by a Darkside upon arrival, but Ira shows up in person to chase the Darkside back through its Corridor of Darkness, leaving behind the Chirithy.

After the Player learns to wield the Keyblade with help from Chirithy, Ira appears from a lane between. He explains the need to defeat Heartless and collect Lux, while noting that there is help in the form of their Union; as if to illustrate the point, a Darkside appears but is quickly dispatched by arriving members of the Union. Before leaving once again, Ira warns that some are seeking to collect the Lux out of greed rather than peace, and entreats the Player to help root out the darkness. Quest 3: Combat 102

As the Player continues to defeat Heartless and retrieve Lux, their Chirithy makes regular reports on their progress to Ira, who occasionally assigns the Player tests of skill in response. Quest 200: Heading Home Pt. 6

Following the demise of Chirithy (2), Ira informs Chirithy that despite the Unions' best efforts, darkness continues to grow in power, leading Chirithy to speculate that there is a traitor among the Foretellers. Quest 250: Heartless Havoc: Fountain Square

Having returned from Beast's Castle, Chirithy comes to the Player with a new assignment from Ira: they must hunt down Heartless within the Corridors of Darkness themselves, with only a set of Bracelet of Light to survive exposure to the darkness. Quest 491: Corridor of Darkness Pt. 1 After the Player successfully completes this task, Chirithy reports it to Ira, but questions the wisdom of assigning such a dangerous mission. Ira explains that the darkness continues to spread, unabated, and that the Unions must grow as much as possible and develop a resistance to the darkness in order to survive. Quest 500: Corridor of Darkness Pt. 10

Design[edit]

Foreteller Ira is a young man with light skin who wears a white and gold unicorn mask and a white hooded cloak over a light blue robe, shirt, and sash, each with gold embroidering. His shirt is worn beneath his cloak, is fastened by the sash, and has long sleeves that extend slightly past his wrists. The tassels on the front of the cloak are gold in coloration.

His name is derived from the Latin word "ira", or Wrath, which is symbolized by a unicorn in the Ancrene Wisse.
