Miriael is exactly 4 cubits (6 feet) tall and statuesquely beautiful in a sultry way. Her skin is white as marble; her hair is short, messy, and actinic; her eyes are the colors of the sky, from cheerful blue through romantic golden-orange and ominous grey-black to the flare of lightning. Wings were once tattooed on her shoulders, with feathers sweeping down her back, but have been almost obliterated by fire or acid. If she were to remove her shoes, her feet would be seen to be crusted black with something like lava, so she never does.
She can pull either a swept-hilt rapier or a double-barrelled wheellock (or both) out of her heart, which is just as disturbing as it sounds. In her hands, these weapons have divine power; in the hands of others, the rapier is just a sword, and the pistol won't fire at all. The pistol recharges one barrel every five rounds that it's in her possession. If she is disarmed, her heart will grow new weapons after three days; not coincidentally, the stolen weapons will decay after three days.
Miriael usually dresses in an exiguous halter of white samite, tights of white velvet, and white hi-top sneakers. She carries a black fiddle over her shoulder, but is usually otherwise unencumbered by material belongings.
Miriael escaped from the Celestial City where she was being held on charges of prurient behavior and treason. She is now a thief specializing in religious idols, which people don't really need anyway.
