Other: Miko-sama is a walking paradox. She has an extremely dual nature and could be considered two-faced. It all depends if you're on her bad side or not. She has called herself a violent pacifist, saying she doesn't like to fight, but if somebody makes her, she'll damned well win. She has also called herself an optimistic pessimist because, while she normally hopes for the best and encourages her friends to as well, she's usually expecting and preparing for the worst. The Miko can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. While her reputation for being mean, sarcastic, cynical, bitchy, cold, and calculating is well earned and true, her close friends and older sister know what is beyond that.
