As always, let’s start with some of her basic info from my design document.
Height: 5’ 4”
Build: Lithe, Cute
Hair: Black (long, slightly curly)
Dominant Hand: Right
Clothing: Typical Angellus clothing (a bit baggy, mostly white). She’s very small and thin, so most of her clothing is a little too big. She always wears large glasses.
Additional Note (Appearance): Wears glasses. Rather bookish and a bit shy.
Character Summary: A junior researcher at the LRC. She’s rather popular with many of the young men on the staff but doesn’t realize it. She’s also fairly shy and doesn’t easily become comfortable around others, preferring her books and research. She’s currently the only LRC scientist who focuses solely on Nightmares.
Mira is a researcher at the same corporation as Ars, Tia, and Aurora. Though she works in a different department, so none of our heroes know her very well. Unlike Tia and Aurora, she’s rather shy and timid, though she can be very passionate when talking about her work.
Here’s some of Hanbee’s original sketches of Mira.
Mira is the LRC’s sole Nightmare researcher. The reason being that, due to their rarity and tendency to disappear within minutes or even seconds of appearing, there’s very little to actually study, beyond the accounts of the survivors.
While Mira is an important character (she wouldn’t have her own character art if she didn’t), her role is mostly limited to one of the three main story paths and even then she’s not the route’s main heroine. As such, she didn’t exist in my original novel version of the story. But, when expanding that story into a full visual novel, I ended up with a few more roles that needed to be filled, Mira being one of them. That said, I would be open to adding a fourth story path with Mira as the heroine if time and budget allowed. Or perhaps as DLC…
Let’s finish up with a look at one of Mira’s final in-game poses.
