Mira had an uneventful childhood until her acting and acrobatic talents got her a position in a prestigious troupe. Her family were a little unsure about letting her leave, but her passion for the way of life helped persuade them - along with the difficulty they were having supporting her as well as their younger son. Living with the theatre, she first discovered her powers by mimicking the pose of a haughty noblewoman sitting in a box above perfectly, recreating effortlessly her utter, inbuilt dominance.
Her time getting into trouble made her more withdrawn, but it seems on the surface that she's gotten over this. Several times now she's met someone who made her heart beat faster, and the experience left her only confused, while it opened up a new aspect of her being. Sadly, as is too common for an adventurer's life, none of those times ended well. In her pain and sorrow, she collapsed inwards. Her latest role is a reaction to this - an indolent cheerfulness born of escape. While she seems far more open, she's pushing all her pain away.
In her own form, Mira has silver hair, and eyes of grey. Her outfit is a small blue top, and a knee-length skirt of blue and white. She wears a headband of noble azure, and matching pins keep the hair from her eyes.
She rarely stays in her own form.
Mostly, the aspects she assumes merely shift her colours - the emperor turns her hair and clothes black and royal purple, and her eyes a piercing green, as well as making her top cover her stomach. The empress, meanwhile, gives her a 'pure' appearance, with white-blonde hair, pale blue eyes, and a long dress of sky blue. The lovers, meanwhile, cast her outfit as a pale pink, her hair a bright red and eyes a chocolate brown. Her top is reduced to a tube top. As the devil, she possesses a low-cut green dress, matching her hair - in pigtails - and eyes.
As herself, Mira is friendly, easily distracted, and fond of performing. However, since getting a place in a great theatre, she's been herself far less often.
The Emperor is cool, intelligent, and a little cruel. The Empress, of course, is the reverse - warm, wise, and caring. The lover is free, affectionate and lovable. The Devil, most importantly, is happy, although she flees responsibility.
Perhaps such a disassociation with her own self would be natural for an actress blessed with such powers by the light, but few are close enough to her to realise how much she is lost in her roles.
