Born as the 31st generation Star Singer of the Lune bloodline of Pureblood Beta Reyvateils in the city of Platina on the tower of Ar Tonelico in the Sol Ciel region of the world of Ar Ciel, Misha Arsellec Lune was born to fulfill a purpose, born to a destiny. For generations the Lune bloodline served as jailers to an entity of malice residing on the tower: Mir. Mir was another Reyvateil, created for the purpose of serving humans, rejecting her role however and initiating a war, and was sealed away. For generations, singers of the Lune bloodline gave their lives to keep Mir under lock and key with the song Chronicle Key.
Growing up in Platina before taking up the duty of her ancestors, Misha became friends with a young boy by the name of Lyner Barsett. The pair grew to become close friends, going so far as to promise to spend their futures together were Misha to ever escape her duty. But it was not to be. Her fate was to spend her whole life singing Chronicle Key in a small chamber deep within the tower to keep Mir in place. And years passed
It was in a twist of that fate, that her song was stolen from her. Unable to sing, Mir began to awake from her slumber while Misha was forced to search. And in the middle of that search she came across... Lyner, of all people, on his on quest in search of another song. Lyner however, had forgotten Misha and the promise they made. Swallowing down the painful feelings whilst regaining her song, by the time Misha had regained Chronicle Key, Mir had already awoken and was searching for methods to free herself.
With some alternative thinking, and opting to risk the fate of the world with trying to convince Mir to halt her attempts to kill all humanity. It was successful, and Mir was released, given a new chance at life.
Lyner however had developed feelings for another Reyvateil, leaving Misha for another girl. Heartbroken and wounded, the Star Singer opted to leave the land of Sol Ciel, to seek out new places to see and create new songs to sing. However, it was during a fateful trip on an airship to the second tower that Misha dozed off in her seat- awakening to find herself on a bench on Yuriba, more than bewildered to say the least.
It's been at least a year since her unexpected arrival on the island and Misha has already adjusted to a quiet life. While she's not exactly wandering as much as she would like, in order to share her songs with the world, living on Yuriba has led to a sense of contentment. Usually she can be found in The Baby Seal, hanging out with Allya or whoever else stops on by, singing, or gorging on banana splits.
Reunited with Mir, Misha has since quietly settled down in a small cottage not too far from town. She still spends her nights at the Seal, though has recently approached Principal Patchouli Knowledge and taken on the job of music and voice instructor at Rinkei Gakuen.
Despite her ostentatious manner of dress, Misha is a simple girl. Singing is her life and devotion and she just loves to sing. She'll do it at any opportunity she gets. To say she's a musical person would be a very accurate assessment, considering she hails from a world where music is everything. Generally laid back, she has a tendency to be a little flirty from time to time, but is wholeheartedly devoted to the one person she deems her partner and special person.
What is a Reyvateil?
On the world of Ar Ciel, Reyvateils are an artificially created race. Born through a mix of technology and bio-engineering, they are all female. Reyvateils are directly attuned to the three towers of Ar Tonelico, and their songs allow them to connect to the tower and call upon power in the form of Song Magic for use in their daily lives. Essentially, Reyvateils are a race of genetically engineered songstresses. Any one Reyvateil can mimic the sounds of a multitude of musical instruments and choruses of voices with her voice, and craft songs through bonding with a partner.
There's a saying...
When a Reyvateil sings, the world sings with her.
