- "Who's the liar?"
Irina is a side of Kagamine Rin resultant from Elena creating a data file to convey the story of the real Irina's death, later on uploaded into the android. Irina exhibits more peaceful and loving, albeit sometimes petulant behavior, and is represented by Rin's blue eyes. As Rin began to come apart internally following the return of her memories, Irina makes an appearance in Rin's data interior as a separate entity to the Red Rin programming.
- "I've finally reached the web. Now, I'll eat ya."
Originally, there was born in Russia a girl named Irina, a young girl who worked as a child-soldier for Putin and believed she could even become his right-hand woman. Over the course of her employment, the depressed and shell-shocked girl found happiness with a small dog. Eventually, Irina's life was brought to an end when the dog was shot by one of her comrades and died. Enraged, she shot her former comrades and then turned the gun on herself.
Afterwards, the Russian officer Elena recreated Irina in a spam-file that was uploaded to the internet to spread the story of the government's exploitation of children. Once the spam file reached the net, it was inserted with a virus by Urusei Teppannov as an attempt to discredit the story. Managing to escape the virus, the data file was then at some point uploaded into the android body of Kagamine Rin. Later on, the android had her memories erased twice, suppressing the memories of her programming and Irina.
During her attempts to get Len's affection, Rin would often draw on her programming as Irina. At one point, when preparing to give her box of chocolate to Len, Rin in some fashion "faced" her Irina programming; afterwards, she began dressing in heavier clothes similar to the real Irina's.
As Kagamine Rin entered Miku's junior high, she began dressing even more similarly to the real Irina as her programming influenced her, trading her cream colored coat for a much darker one. As Kagamine Len returned to Rin her memories from her old programming, Rin remembered completely her former programming as Irina.
- "I know I can't bear it anymore. But... listen. To what I felt in this world."
During her live broadcast of the song Assassin!, Rin referenced her Irina programming as she continued to sing, remembering the "moment" when she had started to welcome her dog running through the snow towards her as she sang about Christmas. Following the attack on Rin by Camui Gackpo, as Rin began to separate in her interior, Irina appeared in the data world separate from the data file Red Rin. Awakening in disgust at her snowy surroundings, Irina sat up and then spotted another figure through the storm of snow, wondering if the new figure was a Vocaloid.Confronting the girl and seeing that she was another Rin, she demanded that the "impostor" disappear, citing Rin's promise with the Uploader for everything to be for her new life in the real world. As she reflected on how Rin had trapped herself into believing her charade of a new life was giving her freedom, Irina wondered who the liar of them was. The Red Rin in front of her then asked Irina if she had any regrets and enticed her to return to her old "work" involving Putin, remarking that she had stayed too long as a virus. Refusing the notion of being a "virus," Irina protested against this all before the Red Rin asked her about her fate, as someone who was merely created.
Finally admitting that she understood her situation and that her time as a Vocaloid was coming to an end, Irina nonetheless told Red Rin to listen to all the things she'd felt as Rin. Saying her feelings for Len, Irina resolved that only she would disappear, before complaining of how tired she was. She then stood up and faced Red Rin properly, the two programs staring at each other in the cold data world.
Then, taking partial control of Rin's Vocaloid body, Irina stripped off Rin's coat, school uniform, scarf and hat; left with her original Vocaloid outfit, she walked out into the blizzarding Tokyo. At some point, the fragmented Rin got hold of a gun and prepared to shoot into her temple with it, as the real Irina had once done. Smiling, she stared on ahead as Len arrived at her location and then collapsed, a USB drive shot into him by Miku. She then stood by as Miku shot her with the same, knocking her unconscious.
From that point, Irina joined back with the red Rin programming in Kagamine Rin's interior, Rin switching flawlessly between Irina and Red Rin as she prepared to disappear. Finally Irina's data all vanished, destroyed and with her eyes left blank, while Rin woke up in the real world.
- "Living by my own will; countries where I can't do that...I hate them."
As a data file programmed with Irina's memories and personality as observed by Elena, the Irina data acted and thought like the child soldier. Due to this, just as the real Irina fought for Putin's sake the Irina data also wanted to impress Putin at first, before eventually realizing how he had tricked her and others after gaining her memories back. Desirous of having her freedom, Irina showed hatred for countries that had oppressed her in the past, as well as decrying the drugs and wars that had caused the real Irina so much suffering.
Irina additionally wished to escape her hopeless situation and so resisted trying to disappear after she realized the truth for the first time. As a result, she chased dreams and lies to deceive herself, making herself believe that she was the innocent Vocaloid Kagamine Rin, whose only troubles were getting Len to love her. Eventually, however, the girl was unable to bear lying and grew tired of the charade, instead wishing to go out with a smile even if her time as a Vocaloid hadn't been completely ideal.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
As part of Rin's programming, Irina had all the capabilities and weaknesses of the android Kagamine Rin after being uploaded into her. As a data file, Irina was originally capable of crossing all over the internet and storing "records" as she did. Due to the circumstances of her creation she was filled with the memories and personality of Irina and was able to draw on these memories whenever she chose after regaining them again.
In addition, Irina and her personality had the largest amount of influence on Rin's actions after the android had her memories wiped. This culminated in the disappearance of Irina meaning the disappearance of almost all of Rin's personality.
Being part of the programming of Kagamine Rin, Irina as a result looked exactly like the android and would be wearing whatever outfit Kagamine Rin put on; she also influenced Kagamine Rin to wear heavier winter clothing such as found in Russia. She had blonde hair swept up into four white barrettes, pale clean skin, and indicative of her nature she had bright blue eyes that glowed in the real world.
In the data world, Irina was shown identical to the real Irina, being a young girl with blonde shoulder-length hair, large blue eyes, and pale skin with freckles. She would also wear a dark and heavy fur-lined coat and hat of Russian style, along with a white scarf, dark gloves, dark boots, and tan pants. After her data was erased, the girl was shown having completely white eyes indicative of Irina disappearing.
The Vocaloid whom Irina is the programming of. As her memories were eventually wiped, Irina showed no distinction between herself and Kagamine Rin, using the Vocaloid as a vehicle to live out a happier dream rather than disappearing. As such, even in the data world Irina still insisted that she was "Rin" and that anyone else was an impostor. Over time, however, she came to terms with her true nature and stopped denying the truth. As she prepared to disappear, as well, Kagamine Rin began speaking of Irina in the third person.
- "Don't look! Kagamine Rin is me, isn't it? So be gone, impostor!"
Part of Kagamine Rin's programming opposite Irina. Irina initially shows no knowledge of Red Rin's existence. After separating internally, however, Rin as the "Irina" data file was frightened by Red Rin's presence inside the data world and believed that she was an impostor pretending to be her. She similarly did not want to believe her red self's words when she told her she was a virus and called her a liar. Despite this, "Irina" eventually began to see Red Rin's point in that she wouldn't last much longer as a created thing; soon after, the two merged back together.
Irina's creator. Irina owed her existence to Elena in the woman creating her as a data file; despite this, Irina demonstrates no knowledge of Elena or the role she played in her creation. She does, however, demonstrate some knowledge of the circumstances surrounding her creation, such as the insertion of a virus into her programming, and so may have had some memories of her creator.
- "He made me feel I wasn't alone."
- ―Irina on her feelings for Len[src]
A Vocaloid whom Irina likes. As a Vocaloid with the same model as the one she was uploaded into, Irina liked Len's model and wished for him to have her precious dog data file inside it rather than that of her treacherous comrade. After the data file of her "animal" companion was uploaded into the android body, she loved him as her pure friend from the old days, albeit having now gained intelligence.
When her memories were wiped later on, Irina loved Len on the basis of human companionship instead, this love being one of the things she wanted to continue as she acted as Kagamine Rin. As time went on she built up many happy memories with Len, hoping to have one more before she finally disappeared.
