In order to protect Kazuto from the wrath of their grandfather when he decided to quit kendo, Suguha became an accomplished kendo practitioner in his stead. Contents Appearance Real Life Suguha has short black hair and dark grey eyes, almost blackish. She has bright green eyes and wears white and green clothes.
She also has a white and green collar on her neck. She has long blond hair, often tied up with a flower-like hairband. Her hair bangs, however, are not tied up with her hair. Like all of the other players in ALO, her ears are quite long and pointy. She wears a grassy-colored outfit and shiny silver armor. Background Kirigaya Suguha was raised with Kazuto as siblings, since her parents took Kazuto in after his parents died in a traffic accident.
Kazuto is Suguha's maternal first cousin, as his mother and Suguha's were sisters. They were taught kendo by their grandfather, who was a former policeman and a kendo champion. Kazuto gave up after two years and embraced the world of technology, leaving her behind. Kazuto found out he was not her real brother around this time and the distance between them became further and further apart, until they were practically strangers before the SAO Incident.
She continued with kendo and became a national quarter-finalist. Suguha practicing Kendo as a child. She won the Sylph tournament, earning the title as the strongest Sylph before the events of the Fairy Dance Arc.
Suguha has become very good at ALO, because of the many years she has practiced kendo and the skills learned there were very effective for fights in ALO.
In an obscure part of her childhood, she fell into the pond in her home's backyard trying to catch a water strider. She was saved by Kazuto a few seconds after falling in, but she was afraid of water until her cousin and his friends taught her how to swim. She is much more social and converses easily with others. Even when Kazuto began to push her away after finding out they were not really siblings, she still treated him with good spirit and tried to get back in his life.
She can be very aggressive towards those that annoy her or cross her and can easily lose her temper. This is demonstrated in one case when Recon attempted to kiss her after confessing his love to her and she punched him. Despite her positive outlook and slightly aggressive behavior, Suguha can be somewhat fragile and delicate due to her young age, especially when her cousin, Kazuto is involved.
After seeing Kazuto in a comatose state due to being locked in SAO, she broke down crying for the first time in years. In addition to this, once she found out that Kirito and Kazuto were the same person, she locked herself in her room away from her cousin and went into a slight depression.
Most of the time she is quick to rebound from these moments and return to being the same upbeat girl. Chronology Aincrad Arc Kirigaya Suguha's cameo in the first episode. On November 6,just before Kazuto logged on to Sword Art Online, Suguha told him that she was heading to club activities. When Kazuto became trapped, she learned of the news, and was struck by grief. Soon after, her mother explained to her that Kazuto was not her real brother, and in fact her cousin, which Kazuto himself had already known about.
She selected ALfheim Online, due to the focus on physical ability and the lack of a need for large amounts of playtime. On October 7,Suguha visited Kazuto in his hospital room to celebrate his birthday. Covered head to toe in black leather and bearing a giant, iron great-sword strapped to his back, he looked a lot more imposing — and intimidating.
Meeting his inky stare full on, Recon requested, "Kirito-san! Look out for her please! She has a habit of flying into trouble, so be careful.
The way he had wandered into Sylph territory, unconcerned; the way he had leapt to his feet after falling; the flawless control he exhibited over his avatar. There was only one type of person that could be both a newbie and a veteran: He should be fully capable watching over Lyfa. For a moment, surprise flitted across Kirito's face before it was erased by confident yet mischievous smile.
An understanding passed between them.
Unconsciously, Recon added, "And just so we're clear, she's my—" He was abruptly cut off as a foot came down hard on his. Choking back the cry of pain he looked up to see Lyfa, arms crossed and a disapproving frown on her lips. Kirito gave him one last sympathetic look before following Lyfa.
Recon barely managed to catch a fleeting, 'good luck,' before the Spriggan was gone as well. With what, his mission? Somehow he had a feeling that wasn't what the black swordsman had meant. It had been a sucky day, to say the least, but that didn't mean it hadn't been productive.
Though Recon had spent hours invisible in the sewers, then the next in Salamander captivity, he now knew what Sigurd was planning. All he had to do was escape and tell Lyfa. He had sent her a quick message to be careful, because as soon as Sigurd had failed to convince her to stay in Sylvian, he had put out the order to have her PKed. But now he had to tell her Sigurd's plans for wreaking havoc at the peace summit between the Sylphs and the Cait Sith.
Right now she was the only one close enough and the only one skilled enough to tip the balance and save the two races from Salamander invasion. It anyone could do it, Lyfa could; she was resourceful. And she had that Spriggan with her; as a possible SAO survivor, he could prove to be a wild card if a fight broke out. If he logged out, it would leave his body vulnerable to attack. But he was already a captive so it didn't make much of a difference.
Either way, he was at the Salamanders' mercy, but he had been prepared for this situation, and didn't have anything too valuable on his person. Some things were more important, like keeping his promises. His consciousness returned to his body where he was lying on his bed in his dark room.
Quickly sliding the AmuSphere up over his head, he sat up, took a moment to get his bearings, and grabbed his mobile off the nightstand. He had been overjoyed when Suguha finally suggested they exchange numbers to make it easier to coordinate their playing time while IRL.
It had been over a half a year ago, but the number had been on his speed dial since day one. Pressing one, Nagata listened to the ringer sound. Over and over and over again he called, not bothering to leave a message. He hoped that disturbance on her end of the line would be enough to register on her AmuSphere, asking her if she wanted to log out.
She could always let Kirito keep an eye on her avatar… …Unless she had been killed already by the Salamander forces. His face creased with worry, but his heart spoke louder: Caught off guard, it took him a second to gather his thoughts.
Just hearing her voice, knowing she had made it to Lugru, was enough to make the hours he'd spent tracking Sigurd worth it. It didn't matter that Recon was face-first in sewer water at the moment in VR, he had done what he'd said he'd do, and quite well. He explained the situation to Suguha. Despite her latest fixation with the mysterious Spriggan, she was going to drop everything to go help Sakuya. He sighed in relief; she hadn't changed; she was still the same old Lyfa.
The next day arrived, but everything was far from normal in Sylph territory.
He hadn't heard a word from Lyfa, but Sakuya had made it safely back to Sylvian the night before and started hasty preparations to raid the world tree. So it was safe to say they had been successful in their negotiations. But why attempt the 'Grand Quest' now, and where had they gotten the Yuld to afford it? Recon assumed it had something to do with Lyfa's intervention with the Salamanders, but he couldn't imagine how.
That and he didn't exactly hang around to find out. As soon as he escaped his captors, he was flying towards Aarun — towards Lyfa — as fast as his wings would take him.
Bummer that the server maintenance had interrupted his search, otherwise he would have continued looking for her all night. As it was, he fell asleep at about four in the morning and slept till eleven thirty, only waking up in time to eat and shower before diving again. Nagata usually wasn't so obsessed with ALO. His parents would be furious if they knew how much he had played in the last twenty-four hours. But something had changed; something foreboding hung in the mood of the game.
His sixth sense for investigation was practically stinging. He wouldn't rest again until he found Lyfa. It was nearing six o' clock when he found her. IRL the dying glow of the setting sun would no doubt be glaring red through his window, but in the skewed time arrangement of ALO it was high noon.
She was standing at the top of a grand staircase leading up to the World Tree Dome. Leaning against the balustrade, there was a completely un-Lyfa like air about her and a sag to her usually strong shoulders. Her eyes were closed, a crease between her golden eyebrows, and an expression that could only be described as 'anguished' covered her face.
Why does Suguha like Kirito?
He landed quietly, not wanting to disturb her but at the same time she pushed off the stone railing with a sigh. Instead he asked, "Where's that Spriggan? I'm… I'm an idiot.
That was impossible, right? But as he watched her face, he saw her wipe tears from her eyes with the back of her hand.
Whatever had transpired between her and Kirito must've been serious. D-did she love him? No, that was impossible! It had only been a day, and Lyfa wasn't really the type to get attached to people like that in the virtual world. But all the same, it looked like she was suffering from a broken heart. It made him angry, and not just a little bit jealous that it had been Kirito she had fallen for, not him. He would have never hurt her like this. Those unspoken words somehow resounded within Nagata's mind.
He knew he could do something to make her feel better. He could tell her what he had been keeping to himself for a while. Steeling his resolve, he dashed down the stairs. Jumping in front of her, he grabbed her hands, holding them in his.
B-because Lyfa-chan isn't Lyfa-chan unless she's smiling! I will always stay with you! I'll never leave you alone, whether here or in the real world, i-if you need a friend.
Their faces were mere inches apart now. The force threw him backwards, and he stumbled and fell ingloriously down the stone staircase, crying out in fear the whole way down.
He landed on his back, all the wind completely knocked from his lungs. Though he couldn't be hurt by such a thing the safe zone, it was disorienting and uncomfortable. But Lyfa suddenly laughed, her usual, sunny smile coming back with only a hint of that earlier remorse, "I could learn a thing or two from you sometimes.
I like that about you, Nagata-kun. I'm glad that I can call you my friend. And I'm glad that you could teach me such important things. Slowly, a bashful smile curled his lips. Lyfa stood, "Will you be alright?
I'll be right back. But it was with that battle-hardened determination. Lyfa was back, but this time, she had drawn strength from him. The trio consisting of the two Sylph warriors and the solo Spriggan player stood in an awkward triangle before the gates to the World Tree Dome. Lyfa's green eyes were alight, "We're raiding the World Tree. Him, you, and me; the three of us.
The mood that she was in, nothing could stop her. The two had made up somehow, and now seemed to inexplicably ride the same wavelength; though they expressed it in different ways. Three fairies thought they were going to be able to complete the grand quest together, with no preparation, no ancient-class weapons, no high-class support magic, and absolutely no clue as to what they were getting into.
Who was he talking to? A small ball of light expanded in the air above his shoulder before suddenly popping like a balloon. In its place, a pixie in the shape of a young girl, appeared and settled on his black coat.
You know I can't come out until you call me! Her delicate face contorted into a pout, cheeks puffing out below large, brown eyes. Long black hair fluttered down and intermingled with the lace of her white, petal-like dress. I got sidetracked," Kirito's gentle tone seemed to placate her diminutive rage. First, wow, was that a navigation pixie! He'd never seen one before! But she shrunk back, an expression of fear on her alabaster face. She retreated to hide behind Kirito's ear, "Papa, who's this?
The Sylph swordswoman looked to Kirito, "What's the plan? Was this guy completely nuts? The higher you go, the more are formed per interval.
Last time you got as high as sixteen per second. I can only assume that this quest was meant to be impossible. If you can make a breach and get through it, you should be able to fly to the top and have a few seconds before the guardians catch up to you.
Nagata found this whole situation completely suicidal. If Yui was right, they were basically challenging an unbeatable boss.
His voice almost broke from the strain of underlying emotions, "I feel like there isn't much time left. This isn't a game to him. Where she goes, I go. Not to be out done, Recon intruded, laying both his hands on top of hers to turn the handshake into team huddle. Lyfa gave him a surprised look, but he gave her a meaningful look: Understanding passed between them; she gave both boys a warm smile.
Kirito's pitch black eyes shone with determination as he laid his hand atop the pile. Yui floated down to sit on his gloved fingers. You two stay back and heal me. That way you shouldn't be in any danger and I can fight without holding back. Her face was fixed on Kirito's, her eyes overflowing with emotions: There was something more going on here, but Nagata couldn't figure it out for the life of him.
But right now that didn't matter. He wouldn't let Lyfa — and therefore Kirito — down. This was his chance to prove himself. Kirito nodded and spun to face the great, stone doors. The planning was done; it was time to act. It was the first time Recon had seen the inside of the legendary World Tree Dome. It would have been beautiful if he didn't already know that it was the biggest death trap in the game. Grand Quest, what a lie! The white room was filled with light emanating from an indiscernible source.
Hundreds of crystal mirrors lined the walls, making the area look thousands of times bigger. More often than he would like, a new, mechanical guardian would spawn from a glowing mirror, coming to life and bearing another weapon for killing players that thought they could cross into God's domain.
Yet despite that, Kirito flew to meet them, not a trace of fear or hesitation. Lyfa and Recon stayed near the floor, only a few scores of feet off the ground. As long as the Spriggan swordsman was within range of their magic, that was as high as they needed to go. Chanting in unison, the Sylphs readied their most powerful healing spell, just in time for Kirito to meet the first wave of guardians.
Recon, who had never seen Kirito fight before, was speechless. The boy fought like a demon, roaring in defiance as wave after wave of NPC monsters assaulted him. With inhuman speed and superhuman reflexes he dodged as many as he could, displaying a mastery of voluntary flight.
But when he needed to, he swung that black, iron sword as if it weighed nothing at all. It was almost as if he could sense the danger surrounding him, evading attacks that came from his blind spots without a single pause. Dozens of guardians were torn to shreds as they came within his range. And yet, more were always there to replace the ones that shattered into countless, blue polygons.
The guardians formed an impenetrable wall before the gateway, hundreds of times more lethal than a fully armed fortress. Kirito was steadily racking up damage the higher he went. No matter how skilled he was, it was impossible to remain unscathed. He growled, flying higher despite the fact he would most certainly die.
As if in answer to that possibility, a guardian lunged forward. Kirito was too close to avoid it, and ended up impaled on the monster's broadsword. He coughed, a wet sound laced with agony. Though Nagata knew the game didn't allow pain signals to be transferred to the brain, a feeling of intense discomfort should be wracking the Spriggan's slim frame.
No matter if it hurt or not, the sensation of cold metal lodged in one's stomach and protruding through one's spine would be enough to cause anyone to pause. And that one moment was enough. The rest of the guardians attacked, striking Kirito with a barrage of sword slashes and light arrows. His health meter slid towards the red zone. Urgently, Lyfa called, "Recon! But as soon as that was done, the nearest guardians turned their way, eyes glowing green with the lock-on effect.
The pair didn't even notice Kirito jump back into the fight with renewed vigor, their attention on the NPC monsters. There's no point in dividing our roles like this! She grit her teeth, a hopeless expression growing on her face. Tears gathered in the corners of her emerald eyes and she readied her wings to put on a boost of speed. In that split second Recon did a double take, gaze swinging between his two companions. Of course, it would be pointless; even if they were siblings IRL, that didn't mean their avatars were anything alike.
Why would Suguha's brother be playing ALO? What was the point of getting to the top of the World Tree? And what the hell was going on? He decided, it didn't matter. They were here now, fighting. They had said they were going to do their best, so damnit, he was going to do his best.
I don't think it's just a game. He had a plan, and if he could pull it off, Kirito wouldn't need another healing spell. This would be the best contribution he could make. Recon flew forward, chanting wind-magic spells as he went, using them to slash the guardians that came too close. He had to get to the center of the mob in order to take out as many as he could with his most powerful spell.
Just a little bit more.

As soon as he began the dark magic, everything else faded away. The cacophony of the fight dimmed to a dull roar. Lyfa's pleas were lost amidst the golden light and monotone words of power that swirled around him.
Hands outstretched and mouth flawlessly forming the words he had only ever read; Recon performed the most lethal dark spell in the game. A sphere of blinding light — like a solar flare — burned throughout the dome. It was his moment to shine. He felt his body heat up as his virtual molecules accelerated and broke apart: His consciousness remained among the explosion; the satisfying sounds of hundreds of guardians breaking apart filled his ears. He had done it! Recon floated there in an EndFrame.
No one came to his aid, but he hadn't expected a rescue. In the last few moments, he finally understood. Suguha, you wanted to help your brother in his world.
And he wouldn't be here unless it was something serious. To overcome his fears and don the NerveGear again; the Kirigaya's are truly dauntless people. Darkness clawed at his vision as his Remain Light flickered, dimmed, and died. But the last thing he saw was the Spriggan swordsman hurtling towards him, or more accurately, the gap he had made in the guardians.
Chills raced across his skin, raising goose bumps. It was a stark contrast to the burning sensation inflicted by his self-destruct magic. Slowly, he pulled off his AmuSphere, but remained lying down, eyes closed. What he had just participated in — raiding the World Tree — it had felt like it hadn't even happened. Lyfa and Kirito had been convinced it was as important as real life.
That couldn't be possible in a game, right. But all the same he wanted to know why they had done it. Unfortunately, right now he was mentally exhausted, finding out would just require too much effort.
His bedside clock read eight o' clock at night. Nagata sat up with posture akin to a rag doll: He wasn't sure how long he sat there, his mind completely blank. Suddenly, a ringing noise jarred his senses, causing him to jump to his feet. Blood rushed to his head, making him dizzy, but he managed to stumble over to his desk where he had left his mobile. Falling into the chair, Nagata answered with a hesitant, "Hello?
He didn't have the energy to add inflection to his words. Interrupted by Nagata's hesitant question, "You called for a reason? It's mostly my brother's business. So this is just between us, kay? A rattling sigh rasped through the receiver, "As I'm sure you know, this all started with Sword Art Online.
My brother, Kirigaya Kazuto, won the lottery to beta test the game. He was so obsessed with that world. He bought the game to go back, wanting nothing more than to spend every moment in virtual reality. But when he was fourteen, on November sixth inhe got his wish. He, along with ten thousand other players, was trapped within the game.
As a beta tester, he already had all the basic knowledge of the system. Utilizing his prior game knowledge, intuition, and skill, he became one of the strongest players in the game all alone. And then he fell in love. Don't ask me how, I don't even know. He wasn't really that kind of person before.
But it happened; and it was the real deal. Without her, he wasn't even a complete person. When he beat the game and woke up, she was one of those three hundred victims who remained comatose. Earlier today he told me, 'nothing will end and nothing can begin, not until she wakes up. So be put the NerveGear back on and vowed he'd bring her home. He made it to the top, b-but… he hasn't woken up yet.
Nagata wished he could be there to comfort her, but alas, he has in his home and she was in hers. I want to be there for him when he wakes up. You were really brave. And you helped me help my brother. You're a really good friend, you know that? But Nagata sat there, mobile phone held to his ear as if it could transmit her warmth as well as her voice. It had finally felt like he had had a real adventure. Yes, it sounded cheesy. Let yourself in the front gate.
I'll most likely be in the dojo around back. We're leaving at three so don't be late! School had started a month ago, but they had an extra day off this weekend.
Kazuto's group of friends would use days like this to meet together IRL. Suguha had said 'don't be late,' so to avoid incurring her wrath, he left extra early. So of course, the traffic would be perfectly amiable, and he would arrive at the Kirigaya household a half an hour before they were scheduled to leave. As directed, he slipped through the front gate, skirted the house, and approached the traditional-style dojo at the rear of the lot. The distinct sounds of match emanated from within.
Curious, he peeked his head around the open door. The battle within was heated, both competitors grunting with exertion and, no doubt, drenched in sweat.
The shorter figure wore white and blue, and even though the protective mask hid her face, he knew it was Suguha. She grasped her one shinai with both hands, posture commonly returning to a defensive, central pose. The taller seemed to have chosen the exact opposite styles on purpose. It could only be Kirigaya Kazuto, but as far as Nagata knew, the older boy wasn't interested in sports.
Yet here he was, dressed in black protective gear, face-guard obscuring his dark eyes. His crouched stance reminded Nagata of an animal about to pounce: When he moved it was like gliding. He engaged Suguha again, but somehow, the younger girl's strong swings missed by paper thin margins as Kazuto expertly danced around her.
But what amazed Nagata most of all was the fact that Kazuto held two shinai, one for each hand. Kazuto began his offensive, swinging both swords in perfectly linked motions. While his right attacked, his left began its motion; while the left parried, the right penetrated his opponent's defenses.
Occasionally, both swords would match up to deliver a powerful blow or block. His flawless dexterity made one of the most difficult fighting styles in the world look as easy as breathing.
It was a dizzying display. Suguha's turquoise eyes were glowing with fierce focus and determination, managing the seemingly impossible feat of staving off both shinai Kazuto wielded. But her brother continued to whirl, increasing the tempo of the battle. Suguha's breath resounded in the dojo as she tired. She ducked under a swing to stab at Kazuto's stomach, but he sidestepped and deflected her blow with his other sword.
Kazuto's only mistake was that he had momentarily over extended himself, and now she was under his guard. She spun on her toes, riding his redirection of her low blow, and twisted so that her elbow drove into his chest.
Kazuto didn't lose his balance, but was stunned long enough for Suguha to complete a circle and bring her shinai around to collide with his left side. He would probably get a bruise from that one.
Instead of investing the energy to stay on his feet, he fell back, lying spread-eagle on the floor. He finally revealed the exhaustion he'd been hiding up until now; his breathing was ragged as he recovered.
You could be strong too if you were willing to invest the time. Though Kazuto returned from SAO over four months ago, he was still skinny to the point where he looked unhealthy. His black hair cast shadows over his face that sometimes made his eyes look sunken. But the skill he had just displayed didn't seem to match up with either his physique or his attitude.
It's enough to make me go mad. You sure you don't want to enter the competition next month? I had enough fame for five lifetimes while in Aincrad. And didn't your fame only last for a month? As Nagata had been watching their exchange, a slow realization dawning on him as he recalled the intel he had gathered after SAO ended:
