Personality and character
Miriel is a highly-intelligent mage who spends the majority of her free time organizing her personal belongings or observing others' battle techniques. At times, her observations make her oblivious to what is going on around her, forcing others to intervene for attention. Miriel's sophisticated language confuses her fellow Shepherds, but she is willing to clarify the meanings of what she has said. The most superfluous packer.
Miriel, Rapier Intellect (single ending)
Miriel remained in Ylisse but would vanish for days at a time when her discoveries prompted further inquiry. In her final years, these excursions culminated in a historic invention of supreme import.
Robin, High Deliverer & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of his origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—he loved his wife, Miriel, above all else.
Frederick, Cold Lieutenant & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. Alas, his wife, Miriel, would often vanish for weeks at a time as she pursued her studies.
Virion, Archest Archer & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Virion returned home to Rosanne, where he was labeled a traitor and a coward, or else ignored entirely. But Miriel's discoveries improved their quality of life, and they soon came to love him once more.
Stahl, Viridian Knight & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Stahl continued his service as an Ylissean knight and led crucial missions across the realm. His scatterbrained gaffes were met with criticism from Miriel, but the two still built a happy life together.
Vaike, Zero to Hero & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. He lived out his days with Miriel, whose sharp mind and tongue refused to be dulled by any change of scenery.
Kellam, Oft Forgotten & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Miriel remained in Ylisse but would vanish for days at a time to pursue her studies. In her final years, this research led to a historic invention. Her husband's name has been lost to history.
Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Miriel went with him and focused her studies on Ferox's unusual weather conditions.
Ricken, Upcoming Mage & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
While continuing to study magic, Ricken realized how childish some of his actions had been. Miriel's intellect inspired him greatly, and together they unlocked the secrets of the universe.
Gaius, Candy Stealer & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Miriel soon began researching new and more-powerful sweeteners for her husband to enjoy.
Gregor, Swell Sword & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
After the war, Gregor briefly sank into a life of excess, but when his wife began to treat him like part of the woodwork, he resumed work as a sellsword. Miriel helped out by researching Gregor's targets.
Libra, Fetching Friar & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Many an unfortunate child found joy in the small orphanage Libra and his wife built after the war. The children were said to love Libra like a mother but flee in terror at the sight of Miriel.
Henry, Twisted Mind & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Henry settled down with Miriel and turned out to be a surprisingly good father. Their newborn son grew up surrounded by his parents' vast library, dooming him to a future as a bookworm.
Donnel, Village Hero & Miriel, Rapier Intellect
Donnel returned to his tiny village and built a happy life with his mother and his wife, Miriel. The latter directed her studies on the local flora; Donny was shocked that trees could have ten-syllable names.

Against Lilina in Champions of Yore 1
Miriel: I sense voluminous reserves of magic amalgamating within you. It should prove quite elucidating to dissect you piece by piece.
Lilina: What?! I'm not some frog for you to pick apart!
Miriel: No, of course not. I have no interest in frogs. But come at me anyway. Let us see whether or not you croak.
Against Lilina in Champions of Yore 3
Miriel: Lamentable and reprehensible. Why have you taken up arms? With your aid, we could advance mankind's magical knowledge.
Lilina: Be silent, stranger. I seek only to advance the demise of brigands like you.
Against Lewyn in Lost Bloodlines 1
Lewyn: I've no love for bloodshed, but you cannot be allowed to pursue this fight.
Miriel: A sentiment which I must dexterously deflect back in your direction. But shall we dispense with the rhetoric? It seems quite superfluous when you will expire shortly.
Against Boey in Lost Bloodlines 2
Boey: I see your world has plenty of female soldiers as well.
Miriel: Then you also allow women in your army? How very enlightened. I was thinking to use misogyny as an excuse to grill you alive.
Against Lewyn in Lost Bloodlines 3
Miriel: I deduce already that this will be a most zesty experience.
Lewyn: An experience? You'd do well to take this fight more seriously.
Miriel: I intend it as a compliment. Did I not project the needed gravitas? You should be honored to have any empirical value at all.
Against Lute in Smash Brethren 2
Lute: You look powerful. And smart, too. You might even stand a chance against me...
Miriel: It seems ill advised to judge opponents based solely on appearances.
Lute: Unless you're intelligent enough to understand what you're seeing. Now, will you face me or not?
Against Lute in Smash Brethren 3
Miriel: Would you like to fight?
Lute: I don't mind, but why ask first? You might have fared better with a sudden, unexpected strike.
Miriel: Ah. Indeed, swift victory could be mine, were that my primary objective. However, what I really seek is feedback. I can't evaluate my fighting if I level you at a stroke!
Against Raydrik in Rogues & Redeemers 1
Raydrik: Surrender now, woman, and there may be a place for you at my table.
Miriel: A quick analysis of your words, bearing, and actions makes one thing clear: A man of your diminutive ability is hardly worth my time.
Raydrik: What! How dare you!
Against Raydrik in Rogues & Redeemers 3
Miriel: Forgive me, sir, but I see no merit in trading blows with you. Now, step aside and allow me to seek out an opponent of worth.
Raydrik: I'll punish you for that insult, you—you woman!
Miriel: Ugh. Must you demean yourself with every utterance? Now I must squander precious seconds to eradicate you.
DLC battle quotes
|“||I am far too organized to fall victim to larceny. However, the thought of you ransacking the belongings of others disquiets me. Think of the mess you make in the process! You simply must perish.||”|
— Miriel, in The Golden Gaffe.
|“||Well, aren't you an edifying specimen. You resemble closely the mummified dead of our world, but I see potential. Killing you ought to yield ample rewards both for myself and science in general.||”|
— Miriel, in EXPonential Growth.
|“||A corpse turned lord, is it? Fascinating. Who fashioned you from what, and why? Does your mind still function as it did in life? Are your memories intact? Perhaps the greatest treasure is the knowledge I may yet wrest from you...||”|
— Miriel, in Infinite Regalia.
|“||These Risen lack vim—even as dead things go. They wear a plaintive look, as if death could not take them soon enough. But...despair is a human emotion... Do these walking corpses still retain a modicum of humanity? ...This tinge of sympathy I feel is most distressing and highly unproductive.||”|
— Miriel, in Death's Embrace.
|“||I find lava simply riveting. How does it retain its heat? What chemical changes occur, and how quickly? Could its power be harnessed? ...Ah, a Risen. I'd nearly forgotten I was in battle! Hold still while I slay you.||”|
— Miriel, in Five-Anna Firefight.
|“||How opprobrious of me to overlook a book while cataloguing our library. And how utterly vexing that YOU be privy to its knowledge and not me! Once we have recovered this "roster," I intend to see it managed more carefully.||”|
— Miriel, in Roster Rescue.
|“||How utterly deplorable. Beneath this detritus of rogues and unclaimed rubbish lay a natural marvel. Clearly I must purge this panorama of its pollution posthaste.||”|
— Miriel, in Summer Scramble.
|“||Hmm. These springs all derive from the same mountain... And yet olfactory analysis reveals that each pool comprises different minerals. How is it that one water source yields such disparate boons to the body? Visual corroboration must wait until I clear the steam off my glasses. ...Again.||”|
— Miriel, in Hot-Spring Scramble.
