A demon characterized by her powers of divination and precognition, she eventually forms a friendship with Leo Wyatt (Brian Krause) and the Charmed Ones, specifically Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano), after expressing her desire to become human. Although she was killed by the demon Zankou (Oded Fehr) on the show, Kyra is transported through time by the witch Prue Halliwell in the comics, saving her. She makes further canonical appearances in the comic book series Charmed: Season 10. Her storylines focus on her involvement with Prue's new destiny, and her romantic relationship with the newly revived Benjamin Turner (the father of half-demon Cole Turner).

Carpenter characterized Kyra through her sex appeal. Media outlets compared the character to Carpenter's previous performance as Cordelia Chase on the supernatural dramas Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Kyra received primarily positive reviews from critics, who praised Carpenter's performance. The character was also positively received in retrospective reviews. On the other hand, Television Without Pity's Demian criticized Kyra as a carbon copy of Cordelia without any indicators of a unique identity.
