To my dearest, Travis the Great. Hi there, Travis the Great. I am the girl who loves you most in the entire world. But in order to prove that I'm your number 1 fan, I need some kind of evidence. Because no matter how much I insist that I'm your number 1 fan, any other chick or bitch can approach you and say the same thing. This is why I've decided. That I should become strong. By doing this I knew someday, I'd be able to get closer to you. Putting my title as Travis the Great number 1 fan on the line. I embarked on this path...and ended up winning the National Student Assassin championship. I really did my best! But you know, in hindsight it was a cinch. I guess I'm just blessed...I could master in one day techniques that would take others years to do. Pretty awesome, right? And then, I got greedy, a new urge, a vision. That just maybe I could win a fight against Travis the Great. Now my goal is to behead Travis the Great. Therefore surpassing my hero. Oops, did I actually write's kinda embarrassing, you know. Well anyways, I've made up my mind. I made an oath. I won't be killed by anyone! I shall defeat Travis the Great in battle! Only then Travis the Great will be mine and mine only! Love, Travis the Great's number 1 fan, Kimmy Howell.
~ Kimmy's letter.

After Travis finished with her letter, Travis and Kimmy begin the fight. Kimmy mainly fights by twirling her Double Beam Kitana Flute. She also can shoot damaging bubbles out of her flute.
