Mira is small in every sense of the word except personality. She stands barely five feet even in her favorite boots, and maybe ninety pounds soaking wet, with a windswept mess of wild red hair. She has the typical luminous green eyes of the Sin'dorei, and tends to dress in simple, rumpled, casual clothes. Her hair usually looks like it hasn't been brushed in a day or two, and it is strung here and there with thin braids bearing mementoes of her travels - a sliver of dream shard, a strange green crystal feather, a few pieces of green dragonscale, bone beads, and an old thorium bullet etched with a tiny picture of an elf and a Tauren. On her left forearm the word "Asha" is inked in heavy black Taurahe characters. There's almost always an animal of some description tagging along at her heels, even if it's just a stray cat that she just fed.
Recklessness frequently defines Mira. She's almost constantly in over her head, with a fiery temper and a wild, irrepressible streak; however, her loyalty to friends and family is painfully ferocious. She can be very friendly, or very contentious, depending on the circumstances and her mood at the moment. There are two things, however, that go straight to the soft spot of her heart - animals and children.
Born in Silvermoon to the union of a healer priest and a warlock, she grew up shadowing her sister Cataryna. For a time, she lived with her family in Theramore, where her mother taught magic and her father followed his calling as a healer. When Cataryna answered the call of the Prince, Mira followed - but unlike her sister, she could not bring herself to join the Blood Knights, and Cataryna wanted to shelter her sister from the dangerous life of the Farstriders. Seeking to escape the sheltering (some might say stifling) influence of her sister, Mira went to the new Horde allies, and learned the path of the hunter their way.
Along the way, she became friends with an elder warrior-turned hunter, Jagaimo of the Emberhorn tribe. After several years of friendship, and coming to regard the tribe's land as a second home, she requested of the tribe a chance to earn a permanent place there. After a series of difficult trials which she was required to complete without outside assistance, she was rewarded with a home among the Emberhorn, to be considered a member of the tribe in name and in spirit. She was given the Taurahe name Asha, which means "small wolf", and she and her animal companions now reside permanently with the tribe. As Asha, she considers herself one of Jai's wives and behaves as such, though any physical consummation of the relationship is presently rendered impossible by the large size difference between the two.
