Mira
Type: Planet
Location: Mutter's Spiral
Natives: Visians
Appearances: DW: The Daleks' Master Plan

Mira (pronounced: MY-rah) was a planet that was nearer Kembel than Earth. It was a foggy, marshy world, covered in scrubby vegetation. It was the homeworld of the Visians, an invisible, predatory species. According to the Doctor, Mira supported no other sentient life.

In the year 4000, Mira was the selected destination for a test of a new long-range faster-than-light transport system conducted on Earth by scientists Froyn and Rhynmal. The test was originally intended to send two lab mice to Mira, but the Doctor, Steven Taylor, and Sara Kingdom were also transmatted there when they accidentally barged into the test chamber at the last moment. Because the cage containing the mice also contained a transmitter, the Dalek taskforce on Kembel were able to track the Doctor to Mira and dispatch a taskforce to capture him and retrieve the taranium he had stolen from them. However, a battle between the Daleks and the Visians enabled the Doctor and his companions to escape in the confusion, and they eventually escaped from Mira by stealing the Daleks' ship.

Departure from Lost

In "Meet Kevin Johnson", Danielle Rousseau was shot and killed. According to an interview with her husband, Goran Gajić, Furlan had requested that the producers write her character out of the show, as she was tired of living in Hawaii—a type of ennui known among Lost cast members as "island fever".

On March 28, 2008, Furlan was awarded back her grandmother's apartment in Zagreb in court. She and her husband are still living in Los Angeles, where they intend to remain.

From Croatia Press:

Furlan has been awarded back her flat in Zagreb, which she had left at the beginning of the 1990s, as [she] was hounded for culturally cooperating with Belgrade colleagues, something that brought about a smear campaign against her.
...
Mira Furlan left Zagreb at the height of the war in Croatia and found a new home in the United States where after struggling for a while she managed to get roles in acclaimed series like Babylon 5 and Lost. She has recently returned to Croatia with theatre roles played at the Ulysses Theatre owned by colleague and actor who had seen a similar destiny Rade Serbedzija.

(The "recently" in the above quotation refers to the summers of 2002 through 2005.)

Jedi Exile (Informal Jedi Master)

"I'm Mira. I'm the best bounty hunter in this system—and that's not me bragging, that's fact."
―Mira — (audio)Listen (file info)

Mira was a bounty hunter from the moon Nar Shaddaa, one of the followers of the Jedi Exile during her search for lost Jedi Masters in 3,951 BBY, and one of the Lost Jedi.

Biography

"She was not born to be a predator, despite her true father and the life she lived within the shadow of Nar Shaddaa."
Darth Traya

As Mandalorians raided worlds on the Outer Rim during the Mandalorian Wars, Mira was taken in as a slave when her home was sacked. Mira was raised by the Mandalorians from a young age but they later accepted her into a Mandalorian squad, and she was taught how to fight, hunt, and survive like a Mandalorian, and was treated as a part of the unit. However, at the age of fourteen, the Battle of Malachor V erupted. Mira lost her adopted family when the Mass Shadow Generator activated.

With the Mandalorians crushed at Malachor V, the Galactic Republic was flooding with refugees, and many of them—including Mira—ended up in the refugee sector of Nar Shaddaa. To survive in the hostile environment, she became a bounty hunter. While she worked for credits, she recognized that the Mandalorian Wars left people scattered and lost. Her wish was to find these people and begin to piece the galaxy back together and then perhaps find herself or a new family. Her provocative clothing was a device to distract male opponents so that she could defeat them and check any outstanding bounties on them.

Unlike other bounty hunters, who enjoyed killing their victims, Mira believed that a good bounty hunter did not need to kill their targets—especially if they knew their targets well. Despite her strange beliefs, she soon became successful, and that success predictably led her enemies to envy. Eventually, she gained the attention of an unknown being who employed the Wookiee Hanharr to hunt her.

Hanharr throttles Mira on Nar Shaddaa.

Hanharr planned to ambush Mira in vents beneath the Nar Shaddaa docks and drive her into some mines he placed in escape tunnels, but Mira outwitted him by remotely disabling the mines and re-enabling them when Hanharr was pursuing her. Hanharr survived the explosion—barely—and begged Mira to end his torment by killing him. However, Mira felt pity for him and saved his life. Unknown to Mira, this caused Hanharr to owe Mira a Wookie life debt.

According to the Wookiee code, a Wookiee should pledge a life debt to his savior. However Hanharr possessed a hatred for humans so extreme that it drove him to insanity. Whilst Hanharr respected the life debt he owed to Mira, his madness caused his interpretation of that life debt to become twisted and evil. Hanharr considered it a form of 'living death' to owe a life debt to a human such as Mira. Consequently Hanharr focussed all of his hatred for humanity upon Mira and instead of guarding Mira's life, Hanharr continually hunted Mira and threatened to kill her. Hanharr would often stalk Mira, grab her by the throat and promise to derive pleasure from killing her sometime in the future, when the time was right. Mira often told Hanharr that she didn't want his life debt but Hanharr's insanity meant that he could see no way out other than to kill Mira.

The conflict reached its culmination when Goto, an elusive crime lord, announced the Jedi Exile's arrival on Nar Shaddaa. Hanharr, as well as a number of other bounty hunters, started looking for the Exile, each hoping to receive the bounty Goto had put for every remaining Jedi. Mira, however, was hired by Zez-Kai Ell – who was a former Jedi Master and Council member living in self-imposed exile on Nar Shaddaa – to secretly watch over the Exile and keep Goto off her back until he could speak with her.

Mira tracked the Exile's actions, who was helping Nar Shaddaa's refugees and undermining the Exchange's business. When Visquis, the local Exchange boss, tried to lure the Exile into a trap in the Jekk'Jekk Tarr, Mira stole her envirosuit (which was supposed to protect the Exile from the Jekk'Jekk Tarr's atmosphere, toxic to Humans) and allowed Visquis to capture her. Unknown to her, however, Hanharr had collaborated with the Quarren.

While the Exile was trapped in the Jekk'Jekk Tarr tunnels, Visquis allowed Hanharr to kill Mira in his arena. However, Mira proved herself tough to kill. She defeated Hanharr and left him apparently dead in the arena, and fought her way through Visquis's Ubese bounty hunters, and let the Exile in, escaping through the tunnels herself. After that, Mira joined the Ebon Hawk crew in their quest to free the Exile from Goto's yacht.

She remained loyal to the Exile, accompanying her during her adventures on the Ebon Hawk. However, in the Exile's presence, she did not hold back and killed her opponents though she did not understand why. The Exile recognized the Force-sensitivity in Mira when she described the natural flow of life on Nar Shaddaa, the Exile taught Mira to feel and use the Force on Nar Shaddaa, allowing her to become a Jedi Sentinel. Because she was unused to feeling the Force, Mira was initially overwhelmed by all the rush of life and activity, but the Exile helped her to learn to shut it out and calm her mind.

On Malachor V, Mira confronted and defeated an enemy she did not expect to ever meet again: Hanharr, who had been saved from death by Kreia on the proviso that Hanharr continue to hunt down and kill Mira. Despite being on his knees defeated, Hanharr's irrational hatred for Mira remained because she once saved his life. With Hanharr's hate fuelled madness not in the least bit diminished, Hanharr begged Mira to kill him because he would rather die than endure the 'living death' he would suffer again if Mira spared his life a second time. Tired of constantly having to live her life in fear and realising that Hanharr would always hunt her for the rest of her life if allowed to live, Mira granted Hanharr's request to die and killed him. Never before had the Jedi absolute of 'never killing a defenceless opponent' shown itself to be more open to question than on Malachor V.

After the final confrontation with the Exile, Darth Traya predicted that Mira would stop hunting life and instead live it. "She was not born to be a predator," said Darth Traya among her last words. "Her death will occur in many years time on a forgotten planet, saving the lives of others. But it will be her choice, and she will have no regrets."

Personality and traits

Mira's portrait.
"I'm looking for a red-haired girl. Leather, lots of attitude..."
Jedi Exile

Mira was a fast-talking, no-nonsense woman, with a dry wit and, in the words of the Exile, "lots of attitude." Despite this, she had sympathy for all life and due to this, never killed unless absolutely necessary. All of this due to the fact she related to them and knew what it would be like to lose family like she had lost on Malachor V. When she joined with the Jedi Exile, she began to kill more easily and did not find it comforting in the very least.

Mira was an exceptional tracker and demolitionist. When given a target, she would "listen" for her target and get a feel for him. Due to her Force-sensitivity, she felt the natural flow of life on Nar Shaddaa and knew where her targets were going to be even before they did. Her demolition skills derive from her entire youth as a Mandalorian slave hauling around mines and munitions, learning how they work.

Mira dressed in tight, revealing leather, which she said helped to distract her targets. She was good at what she did, and joked that if she became a Jedi, she would have to turn herself in for the credits.

Behind the scenes

Wookieepedia has a collection of quotes related to Mira.
Concept art of Mira for The Sith Lords.

Mira appears as a playable character in the computer and video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. She was voiced by Emily Berry.[2]

Both Mira and Hanharr are encountered on the moon of Nar Shaddaa, and one of them will join the Jedi Exile's party, as determined by the player's alignment at the time they infiltrate Visquis's hideout below the Jekk'Jekk Tarr. Light side-aligned or Neutral players are joined by Mira, dark side-aligned players by Hanharr after he kills Mira in an arena fight. Another option includes Mira falling to the dark side later on and, according to Darth Traya's predictions, being assassinated on Ord Mantell by other bounty hunters "before they, too, meet their end."[2]

The Exile would gain her respect if she followed the dark side path and agreed to get rid of the three captains in Iziz for Anda, for the large amount of credits offered by Anda.

Mira is Force-sensitive; players with high enough influence with her can have the Jedi Exile train Mira in the ways of the Force, making her into a Jedi Sentinel. This involves the Exile showing her how to "listen," imitating a lesson that the Exile received from Kreia at Nar Shaddaa's central hub.[2]

If the player decides to take the non-canon option and have the Exile as male, he can show a romantic interest in Mira, but she is unreceptive to his advances. She states that he is too old for her tastes, and that she doesn't want to compete with the Handmaiden and Visas for his affections, not to mention that she would prove too much for him to handle. There is also a chance for a conversation in a cut scene where Brianna asks Mira if she "understands men". If the player is set to female, the Exile can ask her the same question, with the same answers.[2]

On Malachor V, Mira can refuse to kill Hanharr if the player considers this to be more merciful.

According to cut material, Mira would be one of the members to attack Kreia on Malachor V, only to be defeated and imprisoned by Darth Sion. Thus, the Exile would be forced to either rescue them or not.
