1 Character Bucket List - Kiki Strike and Kirsten Miller

Kiki Strike’s first brush with mortality occurred shortly after her birth, when her entire family was poisoned by a wig-wearing, power-hungry aunt. Since then, the girl mastermind/kung-fu movie star/renegade princess has cheated death on countless occasions. So as you might imagine, Kiki Strike has given great thought to the list of things she would like to accomplish in what she fears may be a very short life.

She began keeping a bucket list at the age of ten. The version you see below is already out of date. Those of you who keep up with current events will know that many items have already been crossed off this list.

1. Eat a hamburger. (And survive.)
2. Master “The Art of the Eight Limbs.”
3. Attempt a tan.
4. Avenge parents’ deaths.
5. Renounce the throne of Pokrovia.
6. Take a cruise on a Gowanus Canal houseboat.
7. Tell Oona Wong the truth about her sister. (Break it gently!)
8. Pay a little visit to Ananka’s publisher.
9. Find the locomotive buried beneath Brooklyn.
10. Free the chinchillas.
11. Renovate Bannerman’s Castle.
12. Write the ultimate guide to chemical-free rodent removal.
13. Complete the map of the Shadow City.
14. Recruit the next generation of Irregulars.
15. Add a few entries to the Irregular Guide to New York City and blow Ananka Fishbein’s mind.
