She is one of the Keyblade wielders from Daybreak Town recruited by Master Ava to join the Dandelions, and is then chosen by the Master of Masters to lead a Union after the Keyblade War.

Before Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross]
Like her brother Lauriam, she awakes as a Keyblade wielder in Daybreak Town, where she joins one of the Unions under the foretellers. For the next two years, Strelitzia fulfills her duties as a Keyblade wielder, though she lacks confidence in her own abilities, especially when compared to Lauriam's. At one point, Strelitzia asks her brother to help her in meeting her daily quota of Lux, but Lauriam refuses, wanting his sister to become strong on her own, but states he will consider it if she can become stronger.
Over time, Strelitzia begins to take notice of another wielder in her Union, Player. One day, Strelitzia sees Player as they sit and wait for Ephemer, holding their Chirithy and crying when Ephemer does not show. Strelitzia comes across Player from time to time after that during missions, but she is unable to muster the courage to speak with them. Strelitzia could sense that there is something special about Player, as they see things differently than everyone else. Strelitzia comes to see them as a friend and begins to look forward to the day the two of them could talk to one another.
Later, Strelitzia is inducted into the Dandelions by Ava. Strelitzia meets with Lauriam in his favorite spot, a flower field, to talk about their duties as Keyblade wielders. Strelitzia considers him to be a prodigy, though Lauriam notes that she is superior in magic compared to him. Desiring to be closer to her brother, Strelitzia suggests that the two of them team up, but he declines and states that he will consider it in the future when she is stronger. Strelitzia confides in Lauriam about her reluctance to join the Dandelions and how she wishes to see Player again, leading Lauriam to believe that she had feelings for the latter. He encourages her to meet with Player and promises that he will come to save her if she is in trouble.
One day, after witnessing Player stand up to Aced, Strelitzia is approached by Ava, who reveals to her the world's imminent end. Asking that Strelitzia become one of five Dandelions to succeed the foretellers as Union leaders following the events of the Keyblade War, Ava provides her with a rulebook which the Union leaders would be required to follow.
Strelitzia begins to have doubts about becoming a Union leader, feeling uneasy about leaving those who are not Dandelions to take part in the Keyblade War. Realizing that Player is not one of the Dandelions, Strelitzia resolves that she has to tell them the truth about the fate of the world. Ventus into stealing her rulebook afterwards to take her place as a Union leader. In her last moments, Strelitzia laments how she did not have the courage to speak with Player, still carrying her Chirithy in her arms as she fades away and her heart is released.The next day, she and her Chirithy learn that Player was last seen entering an abandoned house and go to investigate, though Player is nowhere to be found. She is then attacked by Darkness, who hypnotised

While searching for his sister, Lauriam seeks out Elrena, an acquaintance of Strelitzia's, in order to ask Elrena about the last time she had seen her. Although Elrena is only able to have her Chirithy explain that Strelitzia had been seen entering a building in the Seventh District, she takes it upon herself to investigate the building, wherein Elrena and Chirithy witness a projection of Streltzia's demise, which she promptly alerts Lauriam to.
While unconscious following his battle with Maleficent, Lauriam experiences a memory of his sister prior to the Keyblade War, only for it to be cut short when Strelitzia herself appears before Lauriam in a white coat. Beckoning to her brother, Strelitzia rises into the air and disappears, rousing Lauriam, who then limps up to the Foreteller's Chamber, where he overhears Brain question why Darkness would have targeted Strelitzia. Lauriam lashes out at the other Union leaders, which prompts Ventus to claim responsibility for what happened to Strelitzia. However, when Lauriam attempts to strike down Ventus, Darkness defends him - revealing it had struck down Strelitzia to satisfy what it had interpreted as Ventus's subconscious desire for power.
Although the Union leaders work together to defeat Darkness, it ends with Ventus losing consciousness, and Lauriam remains by his side while questioning what they should do if Darkness wasn't really gone, but rather, had become a part of Ventus. Strelitzia comes to her brother's aid, telling Lauriam that giving in to these negative emotions is just what Darkness wants, imploring him to let it go and asking what had become of her kind and loving brother. Shocked, Lauriam pivots, but when he turns around, Strelitzia is no where to be found. It is then that Ephemer enters Ventus's room to tell Lauriam that Elrena had come to see him. Elrena explains that her Chirithy had seen Strelitzia in Daybreak Town not long ago, and she had been with someone in a Black Coat - suggesting either Luxu or the Master of Masters. While none of them understand it, Brain suggests that - if everyone's data had been transferred over to Data Daybreak Town, then that could mean Strelitzia's data was there as well, and perhaps that meant someone had accessed it.
Strelitzia has long red hair that frames her face, with her bangs falling over her forehead down past her eyebrows, while the rest of her hair is tied back in two long pigtails that reach past her waist on either side of her head. Strelitzia has fair skin and teal eyes, and wears a white dress with black straps that fall over her shoulders and tie together in a bow on the front. Additionally, Strelitzia has matching sleeves on both of her arms, and wears thigh-high white boots.
"Strelitzia" refers to a genus of five species of perennial plants native to South Africa and it belongs to the family Strelitziaceae. It is also known as a "bird of paradise flower/plant" or a "crane flower".
Strelitzia is a quiet and shy girl, but is considerate and caring for others. When chosen to be a Union leader, Strelitzia expresses doubts that she is qualified for the role, showing lack of confidence in herself. She has a tendency to panic and rush off on occasion, making her a bit impatient.
She seems to have a high opinion of Player, regarding them as a friend in spite of never formally introducing herself to them. Due to the kinship she feels for Player, she works up the courage to try and save them from the Keyblade War, but harbors regret that she is unable to meet Player in person before she faded away.
Strelitzia wields the third upgrade of the Starlight Keyblade. According to Lauriam, she was far superior in magic than he was.
