Colonel Mirax Terrik was a Starfleet Marine Officer who served as the Director of Starfleet Marine Research & Development. (Federation Space RPG Forum)

History

Mirax grew up on a sleepy farming colony, the only daughter of a reformed Orion mercenary and a human doctor, Mirax was forced to cope with bullying regarding her mixed species at school. Her father taught her how to defend herself from bullies. After defending herself well in a fight with a notorious school bully at the age of nine, Mirax was gradually accepted by her peers. Life was good...Then it was shattered!

When she was twelve, Mirax's parents were brutally murdered by an Orion gang, revenge for the killing of a high-standing crimelord. Mirax went into hiding, stowing away on different ships and travelling around the galaxy stealing food and looking for a place to settle down. When she was seventeen, a Klingon soldier attempted to rape her after returning from battle. Mirax broke his neck, leaving his body in a trash compacter before stealing a shuttle and fleeing the base she was living on. However, she had already attracted the attention of Star Fleet Intelligence, who needed someone who could seduce and bribe their way into the Orion criminal underworld. In order to escape prison for manslaughter, she worked as an undercover sleeper agent, infiltrating different cartels and working for them until the time came for her to sabotage the cartel and eliminate the leader.

When her contract with Star Fleet Intelligence was over five years later, Mirax travelled the galaxy as a mercenary, engaging in small-scale conflicts on various planets, assassinating an occasional corrupt politician, until she met a man named Paul Braggins. He was a few years older than her, a fighter pilot travelling on a picket carrier. They engaged in a brief but passionate relationship during which he taught her the fundamental basics of design and engineering – a subject she grew increasingly interested in as their relationship progressed. Using his ties with friends in high places, he managed to get her a place at the Academy, where she went through fast-track marine training and graduated a First Lieutenant. Unfortunately, by the time she had graduated Paul’s contract had expired and he returned home.

Her unit, a free-roaming scout force, was assigned to the USS Philadelphia, where, after the death of the Major in command (ironically a Klingon), she was promoted to Captain and assigned as the unit's new commander. It was on the Philadelpha that she met and fell in love with Jack Phoenix. Their relationship was short but passionate, and his leaving deeply hurt Mirax, causing her and the unit to transfer off-ship. The unit was later broken up, with Mirax being assigned as a weapons instructor at Camp Gibraltar on Mars. While there, she tested new combat armour and weapons, before being selected to join the newly formed strike team Tiger-36.

Mirax was assigned as Alpha Team Lead of Tiger-36, but didn't last long in that position, having been reassigned after her first mission during which she was wounded by falling debris. No longer able to perform in any combat role, Mirax joined the Marine Corps Research and Development Command as a weapons tester where she excelled. Soon after, she was made Deputy Director of the department and assigned to work on the LMAS and HMAS projects, the success of which earned her a promotion to Colonel and the position of Director of the Research and Development Command.

Biography

Childhood and early career

Mirax during the Galactic Civil War.

As their families were close, young Mirax often stayed with the Antilles family. She developed a friendship with their son Wedge, who nicknamed her "Myra" and whom she nicknamed "Veggies". When her father was finally apprehended by CorSec and sentenced to five years of hard labor on Kessel, the still underage Mirax took control of his smuggling operation. Under her guidance, the organization maintained its profitability despite turning almost completely legitimate. Wedge occasionally performed maintenance on her ship before he defected full time to the Rebellion.

Several years later, Mirax turned to smuggling herself, operating her father's ship, Pulsar Skate. Mirax encountered Rogue Squadron a number of times, including on Mrlsst, where she aided the Rogues in bargaining for the Phantom Project. When the negotiations went sour, she escaped along with some of the other Rogues on Wes Janson's repulsorlift hoversled. Eventually, she and some of the others made their way to a base in the asteroid where the project was being held, only to discover it was a fake. The asteroid exploded, but Mirax and the Rogues escaped in the Skate.[4] She would later help Wedge again in his attempt to extract Sate Pestage from Ciutric, bringing the Skate and a load of R2 units in the Skate and serving as a decoy to allow the New Republic strike team to escape from the planet.[5]

In 7 ABY, she came under attack by the Imperial ship, Black Asp, but was rescued by Rogue Squadron. In addition to her friend Wedge Antilles, the squadron also included Corran Horn—whose father Hal Horn had been responsible for arresting Mirax's father Booster Terrik. Needless to say, Mirax didn't enjoy being in debt to him, but her friendship with Wedge convinced her to aid the New Republic.

Aiding the New Republic

Mirax.

Mirax's smuggling was essential in supplying bacta to the newly-liberated Coruscant, which was suffering from the Krytos virus. In this time, she was partnered with Horn, whom she eventually forgave and befriended. By the time of the Bacta War they had fallen in love, and just before the final battle of that conflict, she agreed when he asked to marry her. Shortly after the battle, they were married onboard the captured Super Star Destroyer Lusankya by Wedge Antilles in his authority as acting ship's captain. Shortly thereafter, a larger and more official ceremony was held on Coruscant.

Following their wedding, Mirax began a shipping business, although she returned to smuggling during the Thrawn campaign to supply resistance cells and smuggle refugees on planets conquered by Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Two years after Thrawn's death, she attempted to apprehend the rogue Moff Leonia Tavira, but was instead captured by her Invid pirates. She was imprisoned on the planet Suarbi, until her husband and Luke Skywalker could free her. In 13 ABY, she gave birth to a son, Valin, and later had a daughter, Jysella. By 20 ABY, she attended the wedding of Skywalker and Mara Jade; subsequently Mara and Mirax, both ex-smugglers, became good friends, and when Luke's duties kept him at the Jedi Praxeum for long periods, Mara crewed aboard the Pulsar Skate with her. On one trip, at some point prior to 25 ABY, they were charged with causing criminal damage after a run-in with rivals or enemies, though the exact circumstances are unknown, and both women were ultimately exonerated.

Yuuzhan Vong War

Being married to a Jedi Knight, Mirax soon took an interest in the New Jedi Order. She often monitored requests for courier runs, and gave special priority to Jedi requests. This led her to transport Luke and Mara Skywalker, Anakin Solo, and Chalco to Vortex, in pursuit of the rogue Twi'lek Jedi Daeshara'cor. Later, during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Mirax was with Corran several times at Eclipse—including during the Yuuzhan Vong assault on the Eclipse Station Jedi base. Later the two were attacked by voxyn while hiding on Corellia.

Second Galactic Civil War

In 40 ABY, due to her husband's status as a Jedi, she was placed under house arrest by Thrackan Sal-Solo's government. Following the death of Sal-Solo, the house arrest was lifted. Mirax and Corran later aided the Solos and Wedge on Corellia after the three severed their ties with the Five Worlds. They took refuge on the Errant Venture, where Mirax finally acceded to years of her father's demands to learn the operations of the mobile smuggler's den - chiefly as she had very little else to do.

Personal tragedy

In 43.5 ABY, two years after the end of the Second Galactic Civil War, Mirax and her family suffered a very personal tragedy. With the beginning of the Open Alliance Talks, Mirax's entire family was on Coruscant, a rare occasion, and she had arranged for the family to stay together during the conference. While making breakfast one morning, Mirax was horrified when she was attacked by her son Valin. Mirax escaped injury due to the arrival of Corran, and later learned that Valin was afflicted with a mysterious ailment that caused him to see everyone around him as imposters, even his parents. Mirax could do nothing as Valin eventually became a fugitive and was later captured and imprisoned in carbonite. She would later assist members of Darkmeld during the Raid on the Armand Isard Correctional Facility.

The Horns were struck once again, as their daughter, Jysella succumbed to the disease and was frozen in carbonite also. She would later accompany a group of Jedi Masters and Jaina Solo to the Galactic Justice Center, to execute a court-approved warrant to see her children. They found both their children suspended in carbonite above an aquarium, as a common decoration in the Center's barracks.

Behind the scenes

While the Rogue Squadron comics and Union have her eyes being blue, I, Jedi states them as being brown.

While not canon, in Mike Stackpole's notes, Mirax's mother is named Jysella Terrik, after whom Mirax's own daughter Jysella Horn is named, just as Valin Horn is named after Corran's father.

Mirax's friend Wedge Antilles named his youngest daughter, Myri Antilles after her. Myri's name derived from Mirax's childhood nickname Myra.
