She believes she is a sorceress possessed by a "Tyrant's Eye" that will reveal destinies. She wears an eyepatch over her right eye to seal her "Tyrant's Eye".

Rikka and Tōka lived together with their parents when they were young. Everything was fine until their father died. After his death, Rikka started to stay with her grandparents. She had some hard times when living with them because her grandfather is strict and doesn't approve of Rikka's behavior. Rikka can’t accept the fact that her father died and is trying hard to retrieve him back. She believes that she can see her father again beyond the ethereal horizon. Now she's moved into her sister’s apartment and lives with her.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Rikka has cyan coloured eyes, and applies a yellow colour contact lense on her right eye. She has dark-blue hair colour and ties a yellow ribbon in her hair. She wears a pair of roller shoes instead of a normal pair of school shoes.
- She is alienated by her classmates as she doesn’t try to make friends with them. She only has 5 contacts in her phone, which are Tōka, Yuuta, Shinka Nibutani, Kumin Tsuyuri and Sanae Dekomori. She always brings a lunchbox to school which Tōka prepares for her everyday and doesn’t allow her to eat anything from the convenience store. She doesn’t like to eat tomatoes and accuses that they look like monsters' eggs. She often brings her main “weapon” around, which is the Schwarz Sechs Prototype MkII, a spring loaded umbrella. With that, she can cast special attacks such as Gungnir, Schwarz Schild, Wicked Twinkle, Dark Matter Blaze, Judgement Lucifer, Laplace-Sphere etc.
