In order to stop or prevent a Breakdown Phenomenon, she will not hesitate to take a life in order to complete her mission. Because of her strong sense of responsibility, she normally has a no-nonsense attitude, appearing unfriendly and strict most of the time. Furthermore, Mira greatly dislikes anything or anyone she considers impure, becoming agitated or even greatly embarrassed in some situations.

Chronology[edit | edit source]
History[edit | edit source]
Prior to joining the Trinity Seven and becoming the head of Grimoire Security, Mira used to be someone who could not assert herself as she was relatively withdrawn. Despite her talent, her high magical powers caused her to be afraid of losing control and hurting someone. As a result, she avoided associating with anyone, causing everyone else to stop approaching her as well. Even with Lilith's attempt to help, Mira would continue to remain isolated. However, upon meeting Akio who came to her and took her hand, Mira would slowly begin to change and open up.
Already a member of Trinity Seven back then, Akio would drag Mira everywhere with her, giving her a wide range of diverse experiences. On one occasion, after a failed experiment caused her to faint, a concerned Akio would carry Mira on her back. During that moment, Akio would tell Mira that since she was lucky to have been granted such an immense power, she could possibly use it to change herself. Akio's words from that time would have a huge impact on her. Hoping to become honest and stylish like Akio, Mira was then influenced to become an ally of justice, a person who would take responsibility for her own power.
Eventually, Mira would become a Trinity Seven, as well as the head of Grimoire Security.
Gula Breakdown[edit | edit source]
As part of a Grimoire Security mission, Mira, along with Akio and Lieselotte, travel to an average rural city in America to investigate a potential Breakdown Phenomenon. Despite their initial investigation yielding no results, they are assaulted at midnight in their hotel rooms by the locals who have become living corpses. However, the girls easily fend off their attackers, as well as discover that a Gula Breakdown Phenomenon which occurs after midnight is the cause. Locating the source to an abandoned church, they find an undead sister continuously praying and casting a spell, causing the Breakdown Phenomenon. Afterward, Mira vanquishes the sister, although the experience leaves her uncertain. Nevertheless, after some encouragement from Akio, the three begin heading home.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Gehenna Scope[edit | edit source]
Mira's Thema is Justitia and her branch of magic is called Gehenna Scope from the Superbia Archive. Gehenna Scope enables her the ability to analyze and reflect magic, giving her very high offensive and defensive capabilities. Mira can scan an opponent's magic, allowing her to pinpoint their weakness and create a counterattack. However, this process can sometimes take a while, which requires someone else to run interference. Because she can also reflect magical and physical attacks back to her opponent, Mira is nearly invulnerable. Most notably, she was able to reflect Arata's stripping magic, causing him instead to become stripped. However, Mira's defense is not entirely perfect, only able to partially protect herself from Lieselotte's Demon Lord Candidate spell. Nevertheless, Mira has since been able to bolster her defense, creating multiple barriers or multi-layered aria capable of blocking even a Demon Lord Weapon. Another implementation of her barrier allows her to place one in an area that will cause a combustion should someone attempt to enter.
Mira can also utilize Gehenna Scope to scan a large amount of space for magical disturbances and even recover her magic inside of a pool by substituing the water as her crystal.
Additionally, Mira's experience and talent allow her to remain calm in most dangerous situations, helping her fully utilize Gehenna Scope to its full potential. She has also been shown to be a skilled tactician, able to predict and prepare for her opponent's next moves. During her team battle against Akio and Levi, Mira foresaw that Levi would attempt to exploit her feelings for Arata, using that moment to seal Levi's movement. However, she is weak against perverted concepts due to her pure nature, a shortcoming that Ayesha once attempted to exploit. Although, Mira has since overcome her inexperience due to her interactions with Arata.
Another skill Mira has displayed with her magic includes neutralizing magic, once destroying a Breakdown Phenomenon by countering with equally destructive magic. She is also able to freeze opponent's movements, temporarily paralyzing Arin and Lilith's movement as well. Moreover, Gehenna Scope allows her to perform magic without any tools. However, since the Royal Liber Academy mission where she was unable to use her magic, she has started to save money to buy magic tools to avoid the same situation. Furthermore, after studying Arata's magic, Mira is able to cast anti-spells, rendering any opponent's magic defense useless. Mira is also capable of forcibly removing her opponent's magic such as cloaking spells.
Due to her high magic levels and skills, Mira has been described as the most talented of the Trinity Seven, although she has never considered herself as such. Regardless, Mira is skillful enough to even defeat Arsha, a Paladin magus.
Hero Candidate[edit | edit source]
In spite of her role as a Trinity Seven, Mira is also a Hero Candidate, the opposite of the Demon Lord, who protects the world. If Mira can awaken her ability as a Hero Candidate, she could fight against the current Deus Trinity in his weakened state. But to be fully awakened as Hero is becoming part of system to dispose all threat to the world, regardless if it means she will have to kill Arata too.
Ayesha described Hero Candidate as "Someone who shoulder the fate to endlessly fight Demon King or Evil Gods who threaten the world no matter how many time". In practice, a Hero's ability is to revive, to challenge evil again and again.
As her training, Ayesha will kill Mira repeatedly using her swords. Mira revived from her first death after 12 hours, but Ayesha give target that she can revive instantly against any kind of death. It's either Mira mastered the ability or her mind breaks down from the trauma.
After Aetheria Akasha agreed to train Mira more to be a complete and better Hero Candidate upon her daughter's Ayesha's request, she must quit being one of the Trinity Seven.
True Hero[edit | edit source]
After Mira becomes a True Hero, she's no longer a Trinity Seven and she lost her Last Crest. She gained new powers instead, powers that are the symbol of absolute justice, pure power that destroys both gods and demons. She also gained a new Thema. However this new power comes at a cost since it can separate both her body and soul. She is now one of the four cardinal virtues of Justice, which is her seat of her soul.
She lost her Superbia Archive. With her new Thema it was powerful enough to electrify the whole Arbitrator Tower building, using only one hand. As well as she can coat her body with electricity when using her Thema.
Mira has gained a new ability to control Einferia army, that of which capable of annihilating an army of Nornil Giant Pillar in mere seconds. She also grows angelic wings, which is revealed to be her true form, and allows her to fly.

However, one day Akio would come and take her hand, giving her many new experiences. Akio would help inspire Mira to change, embracing her magic and becoming more confident.

Despite being former comrades, Mira, now viewing her as an enemy, would swear to eliminate her. Although, even with the help of Levi, their battle ended with a draw. However, regardless Lieselotte's betrayal, Mira would still care for her well being.
