Latria (LATRIA) is the witch form of Kirika Kure, who appears in the second half of the first installment of Puella Magi Oriko Magica. She also appears in Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record as Kirika's Doppel.
The witch of needles. Her nature is enticement. She is a long, towering creature mostly composed of female torsos. She wears a hat with an eyeball perched on it, and is armed with two long scythes. Like she could as a magical girl, she has the ability to slow down her opponents.
Her minions are blob-shaped creatures with hats. Large maws open up on their bodies to devour victims.
Magia Record Description
The Doppel of enticement. Its form is needles. The master of this emotion swears absolute loyalty to the benefactor who saved her. This Doppel’s needles are hardly limited to piercing through the enemies that it confronts. They even pierce through its master’s fate, sewing it into place. This represents its master’s all-sacrificing loyalty to her benefactor, to whom she entrusts even her life, as well as symbolizing the peril of how its master can only maintain herself by depending on others. The sharper the needles are, the more stitches they create, and the more difficult it becomes to remove them. However, this represents nothing less than the master’s dearest desire.
- In Oriko Magica, Kirika's witch name was unknown and theorized by fans to be "Margot" due to a sign in her labyrinth that read "Margot Garden". In Magica Record, her name was officially revealed to be "Latria".
- Latria is a Latin word that means "adoration". The word has religious significance.
