Background[edit | edit source]
Miime is the survivor of a species native to a planet near Antares. In the original series, the planet was Jura that was ransacked and left barren after the Mazon took control of it. In the Harlock Saga however, she is portrayed as being of the Nibelungen and the younger sister of Alberich. She defected from her faction upon seeing what her brother would do.
She was eventually found by Captain Harlock, a space pirate filled with many questions and doubts. Offering help to her, Miime had joined Harlock devoting herself to him in both body and soul.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Miime possesses the standard appearance of female characters by Leiji Matsumoto, a willowy body with long flowing hair. However she has very noticeable alien features including pupil-less eyes, hair color that depends on the series, white skin, and some iterations appear to lack a noticeable mouth. She wears a long and loose dress for clothing.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Miime is a calm and wise figure with a strong sense of camaraderie having a stable relationship with everyone in the Arcadia's crew, being closest to Harlock after saving her and devoting her life to him. She has full faith in Harlock and his beliefs while also being aware of the ruthless kill or be killed law of space. Even then Miime goes forward with courage. She has a strong feeling for alcohol (noting that her species actually use liquor as a staple food source) often sharing drinks with Harlock and Dr. Zero.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Miime possesses a minor form of psychic abilities in the form of telepathy that she only uses in special cases. A few series even portray this ability on the level of foreseeing the future in the form of prophecy. She is able to go for days without sleep and possesses a strong tolerance for alcohol, but is capable of getting drunk and usually falls asleep in these circumstances.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the french versions, Miime is called ''Clio''.
