Kari is a main character from the Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02. She is paired with a Digimon named Gatomon and is part of the DigiDestined. She has the Crest of Light trait. Her actual Japanese name, Hikari Yagami, is translated to ‘light of the eight gods.’ This could be a reference to her number of the DigiDestined in season one.

Kari was not part of the group at first due to the fact she was sick and could not go on the camping trip. She is a very kind child and grows into a kind adult as well. She is often paired with T.K. since they are the same age. Their Digimons are also paired together quite often.
