මීයා (more commonly written as “Mīyā”) is a scraggly female raven who enjoys pestering Noel Priyantha and just being an all-around pain in the neck. The pair formed a fast friendship soon after Noel joined Inferni, brought together by their solitary and somewhat stubborn natures.

Mīyā is currently learning high-speech at a leisurely pace in order to find new ways to annoy Noel.

OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

Inferni members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Seeing Mīyā wandering by herself around Ravenswrest
  • Seeing Mīyā riding around on Noel's back/shoulder

1.  Appearance

  • Size: ~42 inch wingspan; smaller than average, runty
  • Features: Ruffled feathers cover her body, creating a disheveled look
  • Coloration: Her plumage is unevenly coated by the oil-slick sheen most of her kind boasts; oddly-spaced iridescent patches pattern her backside
  • Other: Has a shallow, vertical scratch running down the right side of her beak - evidence of harder times

2.  Personality

Mīyā is a mischievous young raven of unknown origins that generally prefers the company of Luperci over other birds. She resides in the outskirts of Ravenswrest, preferring to keep to herself when not accompanied by Noel. Her curiosity is not unlike her partner's - she actively encourages Noel’s habit of eavesdropping, often getting them both into sticky situations. She is surprisingly quick-witted, despite her usual lackadaisical demeanor.

In Sinhalese, Noel’s mother’s native tongue, මීයා means “rat”; Mīyā was unceremoniously given her name by a very amused Noel who had initially thought the bedraggled raven resembled a feathered rat. She much prefers her nickname, Mī, although she will become irritated if strangers call her by her shortened name.

2.1  Skills & Abilities

  • Mīyā possesses an excellent memory - she can remember (somewhat) lengthy snippets of conversations, although she does not yet possess the vocabulary needed to restate them.
  • Speaks in Low Speech (along with a smattering of some basic words in High Speech)

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

  • Likes: eavesdropping, rat meat (ironically), Luperci, bothering Noel
  • Dislikes: her full name, being ignored, strangers

3.  History

  • Born outside of Inferni lands; made her way over about half a year before meeting Noel for the first time
