Season 1

In Opening Knight, Ciara welcomes Arc, the new knight in training to the Phoenix Squad. Ciara's secret double life is compromised when Arc steals one of the Princess's tiaras and later notices that Ciara is wearing the same ring as The Princess. Arc figures out that the Princess uses the ring to transform into Ciara. Ciara also discovers that Arc is pretending to be of the Dragon Blood heritage so that he can be a knight. After realizing that they both want to become knights against the rules, they agree to keep each other's secrets.

After a challenge from Sage, Ciara leads Phoenix Squad in a dangerous quest to get back Sir Gareth's Golden Dagger from the Goblin. Before the mission, Ciara discovers that Arc is the thief who stole her tiara. She kicks him out of the squad but lets him back in when Arc comes to help them fight.

In A Knight at the Roxbury, Ciara learns that winning isn't everything when she lets competition come between her and Arc's friendship which almost compromises her secret identity as the Princess of Astoria.

In Knight in Shining Armor Day, Ciara helps Arc learn the armor day traditions so that he doesn't get kicked out of Knight School.

In One Magical Knight, Ciara uses her Princess identity to convince the King to add or change rules in order to favor what Ciara wants for her friends. Through this intervention, Warwick is allowed to remain in Knight School even though he has magical powers instead of being transferred to Magic School.

In Tonight, Two Knight, Ciara is bound to Arc with a magical friendship bracelet on the night that her sister, Princess Eliza is returning home. So, whenever she transforms into a Princess, she makes Arc dress like a duchess so that her secret cover doesn't get blown. She is later disappointed to learn that her sister has disappeared. She and Arc work together to find Eliza's scroll and uncover the secret message that Princess Eliza has gone to retrieve the Armor of Astoria.

In A Knight's Tail, she gives Arc her ring so she doesn't loose it in dead fish pudding. However, Arc uses it and turns into a "monkey pig", destroying the ring. They find a pixie who has some issues with Arc when he first came to Astoria, leaving them captured until Arc uses his monster abilities to save the Pixie's kingdom. Ciara helps by using the gummy worm from the dead fish pudding to help Arc achieve his repentance to the pixies.

Ciara starts to feel the pressure of doubling as Ciara and The Princess in Wish I May, Wish I Knight. She's lurking behind in her practices because of princess duties. It would be so much easier if her dad would let her join Knight School. After opening up to Arc about this, Arc gives Ciara a genie bottle. Ciara wishes that her dad would allow her to join Knight School. The genie grants the wish and Ciara likes it at first. But there's a twist. In the new reality, Ciara is no longer the princess and her dad is not The King. Sage is the Princess in this reality and is using her powers to oppress people. So, Ciara enlists Arc to steal the genie bottle back from the princess and wish for things to go back to normal.

In A Thief in the Knight, Ciara's trust for Arc is broken when one of the Dragon Crystals that protect Astoria goes missing right after showing them to Arc. With all evidence leading to Arc, The Princess orders for Arc to be arrested. However, she later realizes that Arc didn't steal the crystal.
