Clarissa Turner, known as Dr. Kyoko Taki (滝 響子, Taki Kyoko) in the Japanese version, is a character appearing in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. In LINK VRAINS, she goes by the alias Baira (バイラ, Baira) and is a member of the Knights of Hanoi, credited for the creation of the the Deleted virus.
Like other Knights of Hanoi, Clarissa is fiercely loyal to Varis and will carry out the ambitions of Dr. Kogami to the very end. Like Aso, Clarissa shows a degree of sympathy and mercy as seen when she felt remorse watching the six victims suffer during the Hanoi Project and when she had a change of heart and released the Deleted virus victims after her defeat by Blue Angel.
10 years before the present, Clarissa was one of Dr. Kogami's assistants who helped him plan and execute the Hanoi Project. Together with Kogami, Aso, and Dr. Genome, she helped create the Ignis - six AI with free will based on the Lost Incident victims and the Duel Monsters attributes. When SOL Technologies infected Dr. Kogami with a computer virus to cover up the Hanoi Project, she helped recreate his consciousness inside the network, faithfully serving as a Knight of Hanoi ever since.
After losing to Blue Angel, Clarissa activated the removal program in a change of heart, curing all the Deleted victims. Consequently, the Knights of Hanoi 'purged' her shortly after for releasing the removal program.
Following the collapse of the Tower of Hanoi, Clarissa was sentenced to a maximum security prison and was placed under strict security, but later escaped and returned to the Knights of Hanoi thanks to help from Varis, Specter, Aso and Dr. Genome.
Clarissa uses a "Virus" Deck, focusing on the restriction of her opponent's Monsters through effect negation and the zeroing of Attack points.  To facilitate her use of "Virus" cards, she uses DARK monsters, including the "Dark Mummy" archetype, along with "Temple of the Kings", which allows for their activation immediately upon their setting on the field. Baira's deck reflects her medical background, as well as her status as the mastermind behind the Deleted virus.
