The Kiriakis family (22 members) is one of the most important families on 'Days of our Lives'. The family debuted in 1983. A lot of characters from other families have been in a relationship or marriage with a member of the Kiriakis family.

The Kiriakis clan is an upper class Greek-American family living in the town of Salem on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. One of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Salem, the Kiriakises are led by patriarch Victor Kiriakis, the founder of Titan Industries, the town's biggest corporation. In addition to Victor prominent members include his sons Bo Brady and Philip Kiriakis, as well as his grandsons Brady Black and Shawn Douglas Brady. Although still heavily distrusted by many in town, the Kiriakis family is still a far more respected and legitimate family than their chief rival: the DiMera family. The Kiriakis family's history is somewhat clouded, as Victor has hinted over the years that although at one point the clan was powerful in its native Greece, Victor himself grew up in more modest circumstances, and is more or less a self-made man. During Victor's "gangster" heyday in the mid-to-late 1980s, and including a storyline involving Victor's return to his home village of Nafplion, Greece, it was also insinuated that the family was something akin to a Greek version of a Sicilian-style Mafia clan (indeed, Victor revealed at one point that his own father and brother were murdered by a rival family in a gangland car bombing).

2008 storylines revealed the Kiriakis family is involved in shipping, manufacturing, and publishing. 2009 storylines with the DiMera family revealed the Kiriakis family suffered in business due to the surprise strikes of labor unions controlled by the DiMeras and the Kiriakis organization controls all "territory south of the water" while the DiMeras control all "territory north of the water". In early 2015 Victor revealed to new rival Clyde Weston that the Kiriakis family controls trucking in the Salem area. 2015 storylines involving Victor's nephew Xander Cook revealed the Kiriakis organization was involved in money laundering, smuggling blood diamonds out of Africa, and underworld operations in Cyprus and Cuba. With the appearance of Xander Kiriakis and Victor's half-brother Deimos Kiriakis, and the mention of Victor's brother and Xander's father Titus Kiriakis, the Kiriakis family as of late 2015 appears to be undergoing a resurgence on the show.
