Born on the asari colony of Sanves in late 1924. Her childhood was , by asari standards, typical. Her parents were both scientists and ecological advocates who dedicated their lives to designing environmentally friendly technologies and fighting ambitious corporations that often sought to exploit the colony’s natural resources and its wildlife. Their work kept them away for extended periods of time and Mira rarely saw them. The girl was often left in the care of her mother’s elder sister, Matriarch Erlinia.
Mira attended a local private school for some of the brightest minds on the colony. Mira herself wasn’t exceptional but her mother’s family was well-to-do and was moderately well-connected with Thessian elite which opened up opportunities that Mira would later admit that many others probably deserved far more than she did. That didn’t mean that the girl didn’t apply herself. She’d inherited her father’s somewhat obsessive work ethic and she always gave a hundred percent in everything she did. Much to her father’s dismay , she never excelled and would never be the top of her class ,but her academic performance was average. Initially, the girl was picked on by her peers for having a painfully unimpressive grades.She took to physical education like a fish to water though and was frighteningly talented at biotic ball landing herself a spot on the school’s team. Shortly after, she made good friends with most of the asari on the team and was rarely harassed for being dull-minded again. Her parents ,despite their disappointment, tried to be supportive of their daughter’s interests with her mother showing up to few of her home games.
Aunt Erlinia was considerably more supportive of Mira’s newfound interests and showed up to nearly every game the child played. Once a decent biotic ball player herself, Erlinia offered to mentor her niece after school in biotics. During these lessons, Erlinia would tell the child stories about her travels throughout the galaxy during her maiden years as a Commando, tracking down wicked people and bringing justice where she could with her sisters in arms. These stories inspired young Mira and she had resolved that as soon as she was finished with her basic education, she would pursue a life in the military just as her aunt had.
She was in her early twenties when she bid her parents, friends and Sanves goodbye and left with Aunt Eirlina for Thessia. Her father didn’t try to hide the fact that he didn’t approve of his daughter’s choice, arguing with both Mira and her mother that his little girl was wasting her potential to pursue a life of ‘brainless barbarism’ . Mira’s mother, however, reassured the girl that she was proud that her daughter chose a life of honor, bravery and service to the asari people (and she would also talk sense into her husband and calm him down).
Shortly after settling in her new home with her aunt on Thessia, Mira took some time to become accustomed to her new environment before she started her training as a huntress. Training for an asari warrior was no short process. Mira trained for decades, a couple centuries even under various far older and more experienced huntresses, honing her fighting prowess in an endless pursuit of martial perfection. After the first century of training, her senior huntresses agreed that she was ready to start being assigned tasks that sent her off-world to distant places hunting pirates, murderers, slavers, and all manner of undesirables. Due to her youth and inexperience on the field, she was often paired with another huntress although as another century did pass and her skill and efficiency continued to grow, her superiors started trusting her with solitary missions.
A few months after her two-hundredth and fifty-third year, Mira decided that it was time to do something different with her life so she ‘retired’ from being a huntress , packed her things and left to go explore the parts of the galaxy she had yet to see. And she went almost everywhere and tried about as much as one could within a span of little more than half a century.
Reaching her third century, she found herself returning to old habits. Although she was no longer operating on Thessian authority, Mira traveled from place to play, collecting bounties on small colonies on the fringes of civilized space. The pay wasn’t nearly as good as it had been when she’d been a huntress , but Mira enjoyed the challenge as well as the satisfaction that came form helping people whom were neglected and sorely in need of justice.
Mira's biotic classification is that of an adept.
