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.
