"It's not like I was born a witch because I wanted to be one. I hated the world of the witches and ran away. I thought that If I was at DWMA, I could cut my ties to being a witch. I even cut my prized hair, dressed like a boy, and avoided others."

Kimial Diehl, known as Kim Diehl (ディールキム, Dīrukimu) is the tanuki witch meister partner of the Demon Lantern, Jacqueline O. Lantern Dupré. Because she lacks destructive power and possesses regeneration powers, she was exiled from the witch community and joined Shibusen, eventually becoming an EAT student and member of Spartoi.
Kim is the object of Ox's affections, but she had constantly turned him down, chiefly due to the fact that he is not rich and also because of his eccentric hairstyle. Because of her past experiences being hated by her fellow witches for her regenerative powers, and her fear of rejection by her DWMA classmates should she be identified as a witch, Kim has come to depend on money, as she thinks it does not discriminate between its handlers. Consequently, when she is performing some sort of service for free, such as protecting and healing NOT students such as Tsugumi Harudori or warming her classmates with Jackie's lantern form, Kim tends to remark that she should be getting paid.
Kim also seems to be self-conscious, as she fled from Shibusen when Medusa revealed her to be a witch, believing she would be spurned by her friends, despite leaving before she heard their reaction to this revelation.
Kim is admired by many of her classmates for appearing cute. She has green eyes and short, pink hair.
In Soul Eater NOT! Kim wears a sports jacket, mini-skirt, sneakers, and thigh-length socks.
In the original manga and the original anime, Kim has the appearance of a classic schoolgirl, wearing a typical sailor fuku school uniform, which is altered throughout the series to reflect Shibusen's current version.
Before joining Spartoi, Kim wears a short, green, and pleated skirt, a lighter-green sweater, and a green sailor fuku collar tied like a necktie, with a Shinigami-esque skull pinned on its left. Kim also wears thigh high black socks.
After joining Spartoi, Kim retained her schoolgirl outfit and still wears the same outfit as her partner: a white blouse with stitches where the buttons should be, attached with a blue, sailor-style collar that is tied in a knot instead of a tie. She has a short, blue, pleated skirt and thigh high white socks and shoes. She wears an opened long, white, trench coat with the belts left hanging.
When wielding Jacqueline, Kim wears a skull-embroidered glove so to handle the heat from her partner's lantern form.
Kim occasionally adorns a more Witch-like outfit, wearing a robe and hat that matches her Tanuki theme. Her scarf also has a fluffy tail on it, much like a Tanuki tail.
- Kim's animal theme as a witch is the tanuki, a rare species of canid indigenous to Japan and which resembles a raccoon. Kim's animal theme suits her personality: the tanuki is portrayed in Japanese folklore to be associated with wealth, gold and money. Likewise, Kim is also very attached to money. Also, tanuki in mythology are said to have healing powers and transformation abilities, both of which are associated with Kim.
- Much like Angela, Kim is a young witch with no actual biological parents mentioned in the series.
- The Soul Eater NOT! anime information sheet lists Kim's body measurements as B81, W51, H79, her height as 154 cm, and her weight as 43 kg. As well, the information sheet from Soul Eater NOT! suggests her blood type is B, due to her personality.
