"Several years younger than Éclair and much more serious, grave, and devout in her duty, Lumière likes to get the job done as quickly as possible. Lumière has the ability to stay in constant contact with their space ship, which has it own consciousness. She thinks girls of their position and rank should always limit their emotions and always try to act elegant."
Lumiere is the deuteragonist of the 2002 anime series Kiddy Grade. While she normally works as a receptionist for the G.O.T.T., she is actually a member of the elite ES special-ops force. Her partner is Éclair.
Lumiere has little to no physical abilities. She instead makes up for this with her adept, controlled mind, her wit and her ability to control any computer unit. Even though she is physically younger than Éclair she is far more mature, from the way she dresses, from her politeness, to her tastes (she likes the opera and fine wine). She is always trying to convince Éclair to be more lady-like through her catch-phrase "A Lady should really be more elegant." Lumiere also possesses a friendship with the AI unit of the La Muse, Wirbelwind, which she created. Her computer abilities do not manifest in the typing sense, as long as she touches an electric circuit she can bring it under control just using her mind. She doesn't even need to touch an object to interact with it, as her "Puppet" ability allows her to manipulate "strings" of nanites towards the object, allowing her to link with it from a distance. She also manifests herself into the digital space and can also spawn Mini-Lumiere's to assist her in data collection tasks and the such. Her skills are so impressive that she can break through 3,786 firewalls in less than ten minutes, or can even bring a planet's environment terraforming system under her control. While on the run with Éclair, she was even able to defeat the D-Command by hacking her own nanites so as to develop an immunity.
Lumiere is often the person who sits at the side during missions, she spends a lot more bonding time with Armbrust than Éclair. She is also far more intelligent than Éclair (at least with Éclair's mental blocks in place) and on numerous occasions, things that are obvious to Lumière and the audience are not obvious to Éclair, but she has more than one experience when her life was in major danger because she has no physical ability. She is also able to access any network, meaning that she has more information about everything, than Éclair does. Even if she is younger than Éclair, she has so much data that she knows, that she could even be older than Éclair, if we would compare them by knowladge.
Lumiere has also been the subject of numerous rebirths over the last 200 years, but unlike Éclair, has never had her memories erased, explaining her maturity and experience. It is not described if they are reborn at the same time or separately, but in one flashback, Lumiere is shown showing Éclair the ropes around the GOTT after Éclair had her memories erased. Lumiere takes this fact far better than Éclair, who has been shown to have had fits over this.
