Her stark beauty is like the golden sun setting against a snow-covered horizon. Her family has ruled in Lindesfarme for generations beyond count. Just as her father before her, she inspires an extreme sense of loyalty in all of her servants.

Einar holds Kiova in high honor. She is spotted frequently in his court. Some tale-bearing Kyrie say that her visits serve not only to share plans of battle. Perhaps Kiova¹s stone heart is not so hard as she would have many believe.

The Empress is never seen without her personal escort of Imperium. When attacked, Kiova draws a rune-engraved sword and sings out in a clear and icy voice. Her song is a hymn of battle; its words bear an ancient magic. It is a prayer of protection for those who serve her.

  • Gift of the Empress Aura:
    When you roll defense dice for any Kyrie that you control who follows Einar and is within 5 clear sight spaces of Empress Kiova, you may re-roll all defense dice that did not show shields. Gift of the Empress Aura can be used only once for each defense roll. Empress Kiova's Gift of the Empress Aura does not affect Empress Kiova.
  • Stealth Flying:
    When counting spaces for Empress Kiova's movement, ignore elevations. Empress Kiova may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When Empress Kiova starts to fly, if she is engaged she will not take any leaving engagement attacks.


  • Sacred Band: Disciplined Army Defense Bonus
    * Having a "Disciplined" personality, Empress Kiova is compatible with the Sacred Band's Disciplined Army Defense Bonus.
  • Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior: Kyrie Leadership

As a Kyrie, Empress Kiova may benefit from Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior's Kyrie Leadership movement bonus ability.


The most obvious units to draft with Kiova are the Einar Imperium, since her Gift of the Empress Aura allows only them to re-roll any "blanks" when defending. It is important to keep Kiova near by the Imperium while keeping her well guarded from enemy ranged units.
