Mir's design is that of a new-age astronaut, with the bulky and unwieldy spacesuit of old gone in favor of a streamlined, hi-tech model. Considering that it is still a spacesuit of some kind she wears, the contours of Mir's body are surprisingly visible thanks to the suit's form-fitting construction. Most of those bodily lines, from her arms and sides down to her legs, are covered in orange, the spacesuit's predominant color. Most of what isn't orange is a rather pale yellow, separated from the orange by silver lines. A pair of those silver lines runs down Mir's front, keeping parallel from up on her breasts down to her knees, with everything in between being that yellow while everything outside is orange. A second pair of silver lines runs a little ways up her backside, starting from the back of her knees before connecting just above her bottom. Mir's gloves have a rare instance of black on her spacesuit, with the palms, fingers, and knuckles all being that color before reverting to the normal orange on the rest of the sleeves. The only other black color on Mir's spacesuit belongs to the thick soles of her boots, which are orange otherwise and indistinguishable from the rest of her leggings.
While she doesn't actually get to experience a true space environment all that often, Mir is equipped to deal with it. She has shin guards cast of a lightweight silver alloy that fully encase her lower legs and reach up to cover her knees, and equipped into the ends of each of those are 4 tiny thrusters that help Mir stabilize her position in zero gravity. Most of her real propulsion comes from the adjustable vents set into her booster pack, a compact round device fit around Mir's shoulder blades that's also made of silver alloy. Aside from being directly connected to the suit itself, Mir's booster pack is additionally secured by a pair of clamps that reach around her sides before locking their grip just underneath each of her breasts. A silver alloy guard protects the Mir's chest, and has two bands that reach over her shoulders to link up with her booster pack. There are tight-fitting alloy bracelets just under Mir's wrists that extend into full forearm bracers on the upper sides, and both of those bracers have inset digital touch screens for data input (plus handy dandy flashlights on the ends). The last piece of alloy in Mir's suit is the collar, which is much larger than her neck so as to securely fit her helmet... that she never wears. Thankfully the alloy collar still serves a purpose regardless, as the slightly enlarged portion at the front hosts Mir's emblem, which as expected is the NAXA logo.
All that spacesuit stuff aside, there is in fact a girl inside. Mir is a young adult woman standing about 5'9" tall with solid features, particularly a larger chest than most realize. While her suit isn't bulky at all, it does disguise the curve of her bust just enough to make what Mir has look average. She has sharp yellow eyes that are particularly good at glaring, and reddish-pink hair of just enough volume to braid into a medium length ponytail. It's kept together by a small yellow ribbon at the end, but for whatever reason, Mir's braid just won't stay together when she's wearing her full spacesuit, helmet and all. The aftermath of that is mostly why Mir dislikes her helmet so much.
What kind of girl is the Navi of a genius girl that broke past lightspeed? There are a lot of ways to answer that, but in Mir's case, the correct response would be a very hard worker. Genius just isn't programmable, so Mir will inevitably fall behind when Emily really gets going on an idea. That is not to say that Mir is dumb, or even anything close to it. She's just... practically smart, in comparison to Emily's theoretical intellect. The dynamic generally works as Emily figuring out what she needs to solve a problem and Mir then figuring out where Emily can get it. That can apply to both complex issues in astrophysics and the genuinely mundane, like grocery shopping. At times it sounds like Mir can be nagging Emily, but she really does care for her Operator, and Emily the same for her Navi.
Mir's interactions with others really aren't much different than they are with Emily, as while she tries to be polite in most situations, her "bossy mode" has been in use for so long that she can just slip into it accidently. The best advice one can take is to just bear Mir's nagging when it happens, since she really doesn't mean to bother anyone and she usually does have a point, if only a minor one. Most of her colleagues and subordinates at NAXA would admit that while Mir is noisy, she does get things done and is a good leader. Mir's real dream is to get out of her research position and become one of the select few space exploration Navis, but until she can manage that, she'll give the projects she manages everything she has.
==Custom Weapon: Lumian Transmission Cannon (Ver. S)==
Mir wields the prototype model of Emily's particle theories, designed for the purpose of testing the effects of Lumian exposure to physical objects without having to irradiate some live animals at a quantum level. As it would turn out, the amount of Lumians being launched affects everything. Low-level transmissions are completely harmless, and while capable of seemingly infinite speed, can be blocked off entirely by a rogue obstruction. When the particle volume is increased, however... think atomic swiss cheese. Mir takes great care to monitor the LTC's particle density at all times, as otherwise an errant e-mail via high-level transmission would probably kill the recipient Navi.
In terms of construction, the LTC looks somewhat like a very hi-tech bazooka. Mir wields it under-handed, and it has two handles cut into the top of the alloy-built body to allow for that. The space between the two handles is mounted with most of the LTC's sensors and diagnostics, both inset and holographic. The rear side of the LTC is easily identified by its expanded size, as it must contain a Lumian filter, injector, and accelerator all within close proximity of each other. The actual Lumian-launching barrel of the LTC is much smaller than the cannon itself, as single particles don't exactly need much space to move. The rest of the open barrel is used to generate narrowing walls of light to guide the transmissions, so when firing, the LTC actually looks more like a light cannon than what it truly is.
Mir has always been the space-faring type she is, and actually predates the current NAXA project greatly. Emily had a fascination with outer space since childhood, so Mir was given as a birthday present all the way back in elementary school. Naturally, she couldn't have been carrying around the LTC before its invention, and in fact her old weapon was just a simple sci-fi styled ray gun. There were many opportunities for Mir to upgrade to more advanced weaponry, most of which Emily could eventually prove, but her total inability to program anything left Mir forced to advance and fight viruses with just her little ray shooting handgun.
Ironically, when finally able to upgrade to the LTC, Mir had to give up all her prior upgrades, as the complexity of the physics simulation code demanded a complete reformat of all of her systems. She was literally the only NAXA Navi qualified for the reformatting, since her Operator was the only researcher properly versed in Lumian theory. As a result, with the context of the deep space project, Mir is assigned as a research Navi while others on the team are explorer Navis intended to make that long-awaited trip beyond the solar system.
==Signature Attacks (200/220 points)==
Quantum Striking (60 Elec damage, 2TCD; 60 points)
Even with the advent of Lumian beams, deep space exploration still has its hurdles. Interference is a particularly bad problem for low-density, transmission-type beams as the loosely condensed Lumians often get dragged down by interstellar debris. The solution shows that even science has a place for brute force. For where low-density Lumian beams cannot pass, a momentary cluster of high-density Lumians is used as a quantum wrecking ball to make room. This works quite well on asteroids, and Mir figures that anything that can destroy an asteroid can destroy a virus.
Kinesis Battery (45 Heal, 2TCD; 60 points)
NAXA staff Navis are granted certain perks, one of which is free use of whatever in-house software applications they are compatible with. Mir found her spacesuit took quite well to a simulated prototype kinetic energy transformation weave. In English: When Mir takes damage, her suit absorbs the impact energy and can make self-repairs with it. The program's been edited slightly outside of realistic possibility so that Mir can apply the repairs to her actual body should that ever somehow be injured.
NTSN: Saber III (Large Area Metal Terrain, 1TCD; 40 points)
Mir shoots a Lumian signal to the NAXA Terraforming Satellite Network, commanding the alteration of the current battlefield through precision laser fire. The Saber satellite class specializes in the installation of metal plating, and the Saber III individual satellite has the second widest targeting system NAXA employs.
Rocket Science (Take Aim, Passive; 10/40 points)
Mir already has an abundance of background calculations to assist her aim with the LTC, but even computers can't promise perfection. The prodigal astrophysicist Dr. Emily Delumia can get pretty darn close at times, though. Operators operating, who would've guessed?
