|Judging from the current state of this page, there is no available image on the Overlord Fandom as of yet to help emphasize its appearance. Since it is lacking visuals, this article requires an image for the first time, the kind which should be high quality and distinguishable. Unknown Intruder, you could go out of your way to assist the Overlord Wiki by adding an image that came from any Overlord adaptation to it. It cannot be a fan-art or fan-made. You must upload the official ones visually drawn by the main producers of the light novel, manga and anime adaptations.|
No information is given on Ri Kista Kabelia's appearance.
Kista is a dedicated and determined person who appears to take her duties quite seriously. Even forgoing sleep to concentrate on matters of importance. She acts very worrisome and concerned for whatever task awaits her. She is described as overly anxious about the future. In a way, Kista had lost sleep every time the thought that the tournament could end in failure came to mind.
In the past, Kista was part of a diplomatic mission as a top-level official envoy to the Baharuth Empire. There she made an acquaintance of the Bloody Emperor, Jircniv Rune Farlord El-Nix at the reception gala that was held afterwards. She also seems to have some maids working at her home, reporting news of the former's status to her grandfather.

Kista first appears in her residence, reviewing documents in preparation for the quinquennial tournament and the events, especially the Connelier. Although her city Bebad had hosted the event fifty years prior, she was still required to learn the ropes from scratch solely because the members of the core team in charge of organizing the affair previously had long since passed away. Due to the tournament's importance, she was beginning to feel the stress and pressure of this entire ordeal despite the event being only four years away. She would make sure to read through all the documents carefully left behind by her predecessors and writing down all of her thoughts and ideas to go along with it.
Later, she was visited by her grandfather Berun, who after seeing her annoyed state, decided to give her advice and to take better care of herself. Afterwards, they got into a discussion on the events happening outside the City-State Alliance, such as the Equestrian King, Ijaniya, the Baharuth Empire and the Sorcerer King. The matter with the Sorcerer Kingdom was a cause for concern and much of the rumors coming from the nation was hard to determine which was true or false. For this, Kista requested Berun if he could pull on strings in regards to intelligence gathering on that nation which the latter accepts.
Abilities and Powers
Presumably as mayor, she controls all major administrations of her city. Though by her own admission, her grandfather, Berun, had quite a lot of connections, far beyond what Kista had.
Jircniv seems to favor her as one of the people he would marry. Likewise, Kista found Jircniv to be one who was rich in intelligence, wealth, and charm as expected of a country’s leader. Thus she was confused as to why he would submit his nation as a vassal state to the Sorcerer Kingdom and believed perhaps he was coveting something.
Berun is Kista's grandfather who provides her with helpful advice, due to his experience years. She respected him a great deal since her youth. Because of that, Kista cares a great deal about her grandfather to the point where she did not want him to worry about her own problem. That's why she tries her best to maintain a facade around him, hiding her problem so that he would not be able to find out until the former could not go on keeping the truth from him any longer. On the other hand, she had met with most of his grandfather's connections when she had inherited his post as mayor.
- Kista was mentioned in Volume 9, but her full name was released in Volume 14.
- (To her grandfather): "Did you come here on purpose or were you just around? I would have gone straight to you if you told me to."
- (To her grandfather): "Yes, grandfather-sama. It's hard for me to fall asleep every time I'm reminded of what could happen in another four years..."
- (To her grandfather): "...The news of the Empire recently becoming a vassal state, surely you have heard of that already. The issue of exactly how much we should be on our guards against the Sorcerer Kingdom is something that must be resolved as soon as possible."
- (To her grandfather): "In regards to the intelligence-gathering process on the Sorcerer Kingdom, could I trouble grandfather-sama to pull some strings?"
