“It all started when you fled from Leonster. My father was a kind man who loved peace. He had no reason to go against the Empire... But...but...! Just because he hid you, we were caught by the Empire and attacked! My father was forced to turn me over as a hostage and lost his right to his throne...he died a miserable death. I will never forgive you, Prince! If only you hadn't come to Alster...this never would have happened...”
—Miranda, in a conversation with Leif
Miranda (ミランダ Miranda) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. She is the 14-year-old princess of Alster who possesses a short temper. After her kingdom fell to the Grannvale Empire and her father was killed, she was exiled to a remote Lopto church in the Melfiye Forest. She was being held as a hostage to force Conomool and his powerful army to aid the Empire. Initially, she despises Leif for hiding in Alster, which in turn caused the Empire to invade her country and kill her father.
If she is recruited, Miranda will appear instead of the village maiden to ask Leif to aid the rebellion in Alster. In the epilogue, she approaches Leif and asks him if he wishes to marry her, as the nobles are pressuring her into it and she does not hold her grudge against him anymore. Because he refuses to give an answer, she decides to wait in Alster for him until the liberation war is over. However, during this time, she falls in love with a knight (implied to be Conomool) and disappears. It is said that she lived happily as a wife and mother.

Miranda is of the Est archetype, starting out weak but possessing the potential to become extremely powerful due to her impressive growth rates. Promoting into a Mage Knight, Miranda's low Strength will hamper her usefulness with Sword-based attacks, and she should thus be confined to wielding magic instead. She also lacks the Build to wield all but the lightest of Swords, although the Flame Sword and other magic weapons might be viable alternatives.
Miranda benefits tremendously from the use of any manner of Scrolls, particularly the Dain scroll. This scroll remedies her poor Defense and gives her the opportunity to gain additional Movement through her level ups. If the player wishes to allow her to wield Swords with any degree of competence, the Noba scroll, along with the Neir and Dain scrolls, are nearly obligatory for her.

“If we could only...go back...to that time... Prince...Leif...”
