Misha is introduced when she is forced to surrender control of over half of her subordinates to a bishop from the Lopto Sect. She appears again during the liberation of Leonster. Before their battle with Leif's army begins, Nicolov asks Misha if she is fighting to avenge her deceased mother. Seemingly bothered by his question, she informs him that her mother has nothing to do with her goals. It is also revealed that she is working for the Grannvale Empire as a mercenary to provide food for the starving orphans in Silesse.
If Karin speaks to her during Chapter 17A, Misha mentions that she is fighting for a reason that she refuses to reveal. If Leif's army captures her afterwards, she speaks to him at the end of the chapter. After revealing that one of Misha's subordinates informed her about their reason for fighting, Karin tells Misha that it is wrong to save Silesse's children at the cost of others elsewhere. At this time, Misha also learns about the child hunts being conducted by the Grannvale Empire. From this point on, she joins Leif's army in liberating the northern kingdoms of the Thracia Peninsula.
In the ending, Misha enters the liberation war in Silesse, and once it is freed, she becomes the first commander of the new Silesse Pegasus Knights. It is mentioned that she was deeply trusted by both her superiors and her subordinates.
Misha is a talented and just leader who is fighting for the sake of her kingdom. She hates receiving sympathy from others and values honor above everything else, as expected of a pegasus knight from Silesse. She would be unable to bear living in captivity after leading her troops to their deaths and wish for her enemies to kill her instead. She also always has a very serious disposition.

Misha begins with stats that are average at best, but possesses excellent growths, which means that she can become very powerful if the player invests in her. However, her durability is very poor, ballistae are common in the outdoors chapters in which she is available, and her stats are quite weakened indoors, as is the case with all mounted units. She comes with A rank in Swords and Lances, which is very advantageous, as it is difficult to reach such high weapon ranks in Thracia 776. She comes with the Wind Sword, and while Karin or Nanna can also use it well, it helps her initially mediocre offense. To help fix her rather low Luck stat, the Blaggi Scroll is recommended, although it can weaken her strength potential. She will also benefit from defensive scrolls such as the Dain Scroll and Neir Scroll to help lessen her durability issues.

Codha: General Misha, I trust you have the pegasus squad ready.
Misha: Yes, I have brought along more than half of the entire fleet. They will be dispatched shortly.
Codha: Good. Then you may return to Leonster. We don't need you here.
Misha: I must stay and command my squad.
Codha: This mission is to mop up the remnants of the enemy. You don't want to stay for that, do you?
Misha: But my troops...
Codha: General Misha, this is an order. Return to Leonster!
Misha: ...Very well.
Nicolov: So do you understand our plan, General Misha?
Nicolov: Good. And if you do not mind me asking...
Nicolov: I heard your mother was killed by the rebel Sigurd in the civil war. Is it true?
Nicolov: Is that why you became a mercenary for the Empire?
Misha: My mother has nothing to do with it. We are working to feed our starving children back home. We need money for milk and bread...that's all.
Nicolov: I see... Forgive my intrusiveness. You can forget what I said.
Karin: General Misha, the Empire is a hated enemy for us Silesseans as well? Why are you helping them!
Misha: I have something which I must protect... That's all...
Karin: ...Something you have to protect...?
Misha: It doesn't concern you. Now go... Our attack is starting.
End of Chapter 17AEdit
- (This conversation occurs only if Karin talked to Misha during Chapter 17A, and Misha was captured until the chapter's end)
Dorias: Lord Leif, we have captured a commander of Silesse. What should we do?
Leif: I want to see her. Are you the commander of the Silessean mercenaries?
Misha: I have no need for sympathy! If you're going to kill me, just do it!
Dorias: It is fruitless, Lord Leif. Silessean Pegasus Knights put honor above all. She wouldn't be able to bear living in captivity after leading her troops to their deaths. We should respect her wishes and put her out of her misery...
Karin: No, Count Dorias! Misha, you have something to protect, don't you? What are you going to do if you die here! What's going to happen to the children waiting for you in Silesse!
Misha: ! ...Where did you hear...
Karin: A member of your squad told me. I saw her wounded and tried to help her... Then she told me... ...I never knew. I never knew that so many people were suffering in places under Imperial control... So many children are just... starving to death. She told me that she became a mercenary to earn money to buy food with.
August: You are wrong, Lady Misha. It is in no way forgivable to put other children in suffering to save your own. Child hunting has been going on in the Empire and Thracia. Silesse will not be an exception, either. Who will protect your children then?
Misha: Child hunting...? What are you talking about?
Leif: You don't know... In that case, you need to live and look at reality. I want you to understand our sorrow and suffering!
Misha: ...I'm sorry. I...need to think this over...
Misha - Rider of the Winds (シレジア四天馬騎士 Shirejia yon tenba kishi)
After returning home, Misha joined the Silessean Pegasus Knights. She later participated in the Silessean Liberation Wars, and after the New Kingdom of Silesse was established, she became the first commander of the new Silessean Pegasus Knights. A talented and just leader, she earned deep trust from both her superiors and her subordinates.
Misha is a diminutive of the name Mikhail, which is the Russian equivalent of Michael, meaning "who is like God?".
