Mira never knew her father. She was raised by her mother in a mountain village on Ered Formen, and no one ever spoke of him. Ever. She sometimes suspects he was magic too. Still, Mira had a happy childhood. She and her mother are very close, and she loves her village.
Mira looks almost exactly like her mother in face, height, and stature. Her deep red hair comes from the father she never knew, and she usually wears it tied back simply. Mira's skin is fair — pale, really, because of the mountain's weather — and her cheeks are very lightly freckled. She's short, and people commonly think she's younger than she actually is.
