Kinana (キナナ Kinana) is a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and was the former pet of Erik from the now-disbanded Oración Seis, in which she went by the name Cubellios (キュベリオス Kyuberiosu). Unlike most of the members of Fairy Tail, she initially joined the guild as an employee rather than as a Mage but after Fairy Tail's revival she rejoined the guild as a full-fledged Mage, having learned how to use Magic. In the year X793, she became the girlfriend of Erik.
While known as "Cubellios", Kinana took the form of a large serpent with violet scales and a light colored underside. Her eyes are green with black pupils, and is almost always in her basic snake form. In battle, however, she can spread out a pair of small, bat-like wings, allowing Erik to use her as airborne transportation.
In her initial human form, Kinana is a short girl with violet-colored hair and green eyes, with a round face. Her attire consists of a light green dress sporting white and green laces with an additional green bow on it's chest. She also has a light green ribbon which she wears on her head. Seven years later, in X791, her appearance has changed considerably. Kinana now sports longer hair and has grown noticeably taller and slimmer, additionally her bust has grown in size. Kinana's new attire consists of a lime green-colored blouse with a green neckline and trim, which is complimented by a long, white skirt. She is also seen wearing green boots.
Kinana has a habit of ending all her sentences with "-kina". She has a very quiet and mild-mannered personality, eager to help out at the guild when she can. When her comrades are in danger, she is willing to go as far as to meekly throw rocks at her enemies, showing her willingness to risk her own safety even without the ability to properly use Magic.
When she was young, Kinana was transformed into a snake by a malicious Mage. She was turned back by Makarov after he realized that she was actually a human. Kinana had no recollection of being a snake when she was first turned back, but recently, her memory as a snake has slowly resurfaced, in which she hears a voice asking to hear her thoughts. She also said that she has made a promise with her friend - even if they would become separated, he would ride a shooting star to come back for her. After Makarov turned her back into a human, she became an employee of the Fairy Tail Guild. Makarov did this to keep an eye on her if she ever regained her memory, as if she did, something terrible could happen to her. Besides Makarov, only Macao Conbolt, Wakaba Mine and Mirajane Strauss know of Kinana's transformation.

While serving drinks, she laughs along with other guild members when she hears from Lisanna Strauss about Natsu Dragion, Natsu's Edolas counterpart. She later watches Erza Scarlet and Panther Lily spar, commenting that it's dangerous. The next day, she's present during the announcement of the participants for the year's S-Class Mage Promotion Trial.
Seven years after the destruction of Tenrou Island, the guild is reduced into a small tavern with only few members remaining, one of whom is Kinana. She now runs the bar of the Second Fairy Tail Building. After the return of the members of Fairy Tail that went to Tenrou Island, Makarov inquires into Kinana's well-being, with Kinana replying that she still can't remember much of her past, but that she keeps hearing a kind voice asking to hear her thoughts.

Despite Mavis' concerns regarding the Wizard Saint, Team Fairy Tail manages to overcome every one of their opponents except for Sting, who stays hidden away from the main fights. Seeing that he is the only player left against Fairy Tail, Sting sends up a flare to call them to his location, and Kinana stands tensely as she watches her five guild members respond. However, Sting only ends up doubting himself and surrenders, pulling out of the event and allowing Fairy Tail to win the Grand Magic Games. Hearing the commentators announcing her guilds victory, Kinana cheers with the rest of the crowd. After the Grand Magic Games have come to a close, the King of Fiore accumulates all of the Mages from all Guilds to acknowledge them of the impending disaster and what the Kingdom plans to do to combat against the calamity. The King continues on to request for their assistance against the remaining Dragons who survive from the Eclipse Plan, to which Kinana and the rest of the Mages all agree in unison.

As the members of Fairy Tail all enjoy a relaxing day at the guild, Kinana and Laki listen in as Erza reports to Makarov that they encountered Minerva in a Dark Guild whilst out on a mission. After Makarov states they should inform Sabertooth and Laki recalls that Sting is the current acting Master, Kinana remarks that Sabertooth has a young and good looking Master, much to the indignation of Makarov. Kinana looks on as the members of Fairy Tail discuss their plans to defeat Tartaros by protecting the former Council members.
After the teams return from their mission to track down the former Council members, Kinana and the other Fairy Tail members worriedly discuss the whereabouts of Natsu, Elfman, Lisanna, Mirajane and Erza. When Happy returns to the guild, he reveals that the former chairman is allied with Tartaros, as well as the fact that Natsu, Erza and Mirajane are all their prisoners, which spreads panic upon the guild. Kinana then witnesses Levy saying that she will definitely find Tartaros' hideout, as well as Elfman's return from his mission. After the war against Tartaros' Demon Gates reaches its conclusion—Kyôka as the remaining Demon—Laki and the others are shocked upon Acnologia's arrival.

Alvarez Empire Arc
Following Makarov's return, Laki asks how many times Makarov has been resuscitated now since this is his third time being master. Kinana simply smiles and states he never died. Soon, the festivities are brought to a stop by Makarov, who gives the entire Guild an idea about their current situation and the impending war with the Alvarez Empire. His Mages immediately express their willingness to fight Zeref himself in order to protect their home. Seeing their support, Mavis reveals her connection to Zeref so that everybody knows the reason behind the upcoming war. Afterwards, Makarov tells the Guild members all that he knows about their enemies' strength and they soon begin to lay down their plans for the battle.
The battle begins soon after Magnolia's evacuation is completed and results in Fairy Tail's victory over the Empire's vanguard, but at the cost of Magnolia's main defense as Freed is defeated. Taking advantage of this, Wall launches a massive attack that throws everybody into panic. At that moment, Kinana witnesses Ichiya save the day by sacrificing Christina to block the shot. Later, with the defeat of Dimaria, Jacob Lessio suddenly arrives in the guild, taking all the members by complete surprise. Jacob reveals that the Mage August has falsified their locations on his radar. He then demands from Kinana to bring him a drink, but when he is refused one, he uses his Magic to erase Kinana and everyone else in the guild. According to Jacob, Kinana and everyone else who was affected by his Magic is alive, but extremely wounded. Although, successfully tricking Jacob, Lucy summons Gemini to copy Marin's Spatial Magic and return everyone from the alternate dimension. Promptly after, Makarov punches the Shield of Spriggan away and sends Natsu flying to him, who finishes him off with Fire Dragon King's Demolition Fist, delighting everyone to see another of the Spriggan 12 being taken care of.
Later, Kinana is caught in the light of Universe One and is warped to a new location; she ends up rendezvousing with Rogue and Minerva, and via her ability to hear Zera's voice, leads them to the Fairy Tail Guild's new location, where they assist in the battle against Alvarez.
