|Birth name||Miranda Dorst|
|Nation||Republic of Cinnabar|
Miranda Dorst was a citizen of the Republic of Cinnabar.
She was the twin sister of Midshipman Timothy Dorst, who died in action in 5149 CE. Miranda was tall and fair. Daniel Leary, who was Timothy's commander in the battle, met Miranda when he came to visit her mother about three months after the midshipman's death.5:1
Miranda became Daniel's date for social occasions, fitting well into a much more affluent crowd. She and her mother were skilled seamstresses. Her late father was a Captain, and the Dorst family lived in straitened circumstances since his death, however Miranda could still call up manners of a lady. She was much more intelligent than Daniel's earlier liaisons, and had excellent instincts for social interactions, friendly and hostile.6:1
Miranda wasn't strikingly attractive, but she became oddly beautiful when she was in Daniel's company. Adele Mundy imagined her as a reflector for Daniel's brilliance.7:1 Miranda was over five foot eight and more athletic than willowy. She could take care of herself in Xenos at night, with a shock rod; she also had been good at lacrosse in school.
Miranda married Daniel Leary.
