"Miang" , Fri 11 Aug 00:48


The woman we see Miang as most throughout the game (short purple hair, Gebler uniform...) Is there any info on who she was before the Miang genes kicked in? Does her name coincidentally happen to be Miang too?

Well, when she became Miang she was a child (only around 13, I think) of course in the Xenogears world, age isn't as important as it is in real life, Ramsus was nothing more than a fetus in a tube for many years... She stayed that Miang until Ramsus kills her. That's all I've been able to translate about it from PW.

Well, this is something I'm not too sure of, myself...

If the Comic Anthology can be considered canon, then the body Miang now inhabits was a student at Jugend, while Kahr and the other Elements were still attending. But whether she was created by Krelian, or just modified, is a question that I'll have to answer after picking over her profile in the PW.

It looks as if I'll have to spend a bit of time on this, so... ^.^ And if anyone else answers, I reserve the right to use that information for... stuff. Reference, likely, so I can get MY translation done a bit more quickly. Never hurts to double-check, after all.

Myaru dear... I believe this is your type of question to field. ^_-

I do recall that the 'current' Miang (a transitory term at best) is one of Krelian's creations, designed to resemble one of the past Miangs. I could be wrong about that, however...

I always assumed that she just inhabited a typical body of a Solaris citizen. I never imagined that Krelian had altered her and if he did alter her what did he do exactly. When Ramsus shoots her and Krelian she dies but Krelian survives so obviously she doesnt have nano-technology maintaining her. I always assumed that she got her high ether powers from the Urobolus ring (see that other post) or from the Execuitoner gown which she wore. So unless the alterations are just cosmetic I dont see where they fit in.

As for Miang's appearance its funny she seems to have a miang-esque look in each incarnation yet I dont see any evidence that her appearance changes once she takes over a host body. If that was the case then Wiseman would have caught on sooner when she took over Karen's body. Sure Elly's appearance changed but that was due to her being reunited and becoming the Mother Persona which is a little different to Miang just taking over a regular host.

Well those are my thoughts on the subject

Saber now that I think of it, Karen proally didn't have purple hair yet when she became Miang she had purple hair. And Kahn didn;t know? How dense is he......Mayne all Miang's turn into the way the first one looked save teh long hair.

Actually, Karen had black hair even after she became Miang... in Id's flashback he mentioned that only her behavior changed, and she certainly doesn't look like Miang in the anime sequence we see of her, save for her rather severe and cold facial expression.

Did Miang learn to contain the physical changes which attended her awakenings, over the years? Or was Karen's will too strong for her to subjugate completely, and the fact that she didn't change her appearance was an effect of that? I think it's most likely one of those two, or possibly a combination of them. The physical changes were immediate when she possessed Elly's body...

If you think about it, it could also be that purple just... isn't darker than black. ^.^ Perhaps the body's only bow to Miang's nature was violet highlights. ^_~

Its strange there is a destinct look all the miangs share and its not just the hair I think its the face and the physique. Perhaps there are some women who Miang is more prone to take over. Or maybe she just goes into the woman who is closest to her previous host in terms of genetic structure or the person closest to Elly. In other words perhaps if Miang had been killed during the game she would have gone into Elly's body. Now that would have been a suprise hehe. This post is becoming more of a wacky rambling than usual hehe.

Miang's hair distinctly looked the same after she took control of Karen's body and even if her hair colour had changed Miang could have just told Khan that she dyed it for fun or something.

Most likely though any simularities in appearance between the variou Miang incarnations are only there so that we the viewer can identify her easily.

The other theory is that she can control how much her physical appearance changes once she takes control of a host body. So the Miang we see throughout the game is probably Miang in her fullest form whilst in the cases of Karen and the Zeboim prime minister's aid she only altered her appearance slightly if at all.

In any case these are just theories and speculations

It's quite possible that she can control her appearance... as they say in the game, Miang was beginning to break through the boundries trapping her throughout her life thus far... And she is far stronger a mind than that of any of the bodies she takes, with the possible exception of Karen.

Perhaps it was Karen's remaining Will that prevented the body from changing fully. It does seem, after all, that Karen was still there... and that, of course, is why she was able to overpower Miang just enough to shield Fei from his own blast right before she died.

As for the current Miang... the girl she took control of already looked like her. So, either she was manufactured by Krelian in such a way that Miang could purposely jump into that body, or Miang just happened to be extremely lucky in jumping where she was needed at the time. It could really be anything.

I think the girl was just a random student unlucky enough to become Miang's newest vessel... She looks like a normal student, wtih friends, classes, etc... I only wonder if she had purple hair or not, because when she 'became Miang', she was right in the middle of a crowded hallway. ^^

Something also mentions an ailment Miang was suffering from... that could very well be something this girl had, that effected the transition somewhat. I'll have to look into that again a little later...
