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 theater, 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.
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.
Quiet, eager to please. Greatly affected by her personae. The Empress (Who she thinks of as the priestess, or the queen) is kind beyond measure, giving all she has to her friends, subjects, or whoever. Mira defaults to taking on this aspect. The Emperor (Who she thinks of as better fitting the term Empress) is cruel and dominant, if not truly sadistic. She doesn't take this form unless she has to.
