    Hm...Maybe it's that she's not sympathetic ENOUGH? The vital element of a tragic character is that they must start out, at least theoretically, heroic. Redcloak, for instance, is a hero at first.

    (I think) We don't get to SEE what makes Miko a such-and-such character. We don't get to see how...dunno, how she craves Shojo's affection or how Gin-Jun actively reared her up or how she spends days alone judged by others, or something. (I don't know if any are actually found in bonus material). We get to see Redcloak's roots, and how his whole family is slaughtered. We get to see a hefty glimpse of Roy's past when he reunites with his family in Heaven. But much of Miko's backstory is given to us not by concrete details, but by implications or inferences.

    For example: if we only saw V run off into a room, and then zhe came out talking with Blackwing about how zhe mourned over zir Familicide -- well, so what? What made V so vulnerable and compelling is that we actually, with our own eyes, get to word-by-word view V's breakdown and sincere grief. We see V curled up and crying. We don't get a chance of that with Miko.

    IMHO

    I thought Miko was interesting, all right. But it's a kind of character I really like to read about (compare Sillice in Drowtales, who has many points in common with her). She, however, clearly wasn't meant to be a MAIN character. She was there to first to represent a menace, then to sow dissent among the Order and test Roy, and, finally, to be a loose cannon and create a massive crisis for her homeland.

    She did do heroic stuff. She saved the people in the tavern, helped save the old man, fought against Redcloak and Xykon, and so on. She routinely crossed the continent, alone and unaided, in service of her lord. But she also constantly was a nagging OTHER to the main cast -- the people we are to identify with.

    Had she been meant to be a character to identify into, seeing more of her during her travels would have helped. There are some bonus strips about her personal life in the city, one of which allows to give her some empathy. And when she talked to Shojo about her crying when she was little and her feelings, that single panel also gave us some insight into her and her relationship to Shojo.

    Honestly, I'm not sure. I mean, every character's flaws exist to serve the story, but if you mean that she specifically stands out for that and comes across as inorganic, then, yeah, she probably won't work very well for you.

    Perhaps it's because she seems so rigid and inflexible and strong-willed that maybe it's hard to imagine how her life could have gone differently? I do think an important element of tragedy is the sense that things could have been different. I do think Miko's life could have gone differently, although I don't know where things would have had to start to change for her for that to be the case.

    Most of Miko's "on-screen" time is spent serving as a foil for Roy. Miko believes in doing good, like Roy; and believes in her ability to determine what the best way to do things is, like Roy....But where Roy's forced to rely on his team, and is (very) slowly learning to trust them; Miko's routinely sent off on Sapphire Guard missions by herself, and she has to rely on her self-sufficiency. While Roy talks about not wanting to be like Shojo when he wants the Order to follow him of their own volition rather than because of the contracts they signed, Miko's very much central to that: She's the one who converted Shojo's authority into coercing the Order of the Stick by threat of force.

    Of course, since Roy is a protagonist and Miko is not, he's the who gets the major character development in the strip...which would only be muddied if Miko also majorly changed at the same time. Not that Miko was completely unaffected by the whole thing: If it wasn't personal when Roy verbally attacked her when she relaxed her guard, it certainly was Roy defended someone she knew to be a murderer, and Shojo let him get away with it. And when she shows up again later, taking it personally is still driving her forward, and the strips are in a fast-paced mode that doesn't allow time for showing how else she might have changed.

    Miko's appearences in bonus strips do most of the work of conveying more of her character: She isn't abrasive by intent, and doesn't quite understand that she's being abrasive. Like she's become so accustomed to her superiors (Shojo...and I suppose the Twelve Gods) taking her for granted, that she doesn't see anything wrong with taking her subordinates for granted. In the main strip, the closest we get is when she's dying, honestly thinking that getting the job done is the only thing that matters...which probably was in fact the case with Shojo (and, I suppose, the Twelve Gods).


    There are a lot of ways Miko's life could have gone differently, a good many of which involve Shojo not engaging in so much deception and manipulation; so that Shojo colluding with Roy was not a surprise, or at least not a situation that looked like Shojo was guaranteed to manipulate his way out of like he had all this time...if she let him live.

    More interestingly, a prequel story with Miko as a protagonist could go a long way towards establishing (or refuting) what I admit is mostly a string of good-sounding half-guesses above. A buddy cop paladin story with Miko and Lien, perhaps.

    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth

    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear

    I don't think so....Basing it on Episode I would make the parallel Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan; that doesn't seem like the right dynamic. Miko and Lien would be closer to (3D) The Clone Wars' Anakin and Ahsoka, I think. Really big shoes for Lien to fill, I admit.

    And V was dealing in a lot of absolutes after the battle. Does that make their attack on the ABD the Revenge of the Sith?
    ďEvil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.Ē

    I totally understand Lacuna trying to convinces us to see Miko as an actual tragic character with a narrative arc.
    I do happen to agree that Miko's basic premise- a kind of gender-flipped fantasy Batman with a little extra magic sauce and a little more bloodshed- is basically kind of awesome (with bonus points for wakizashi and katana, a la Miyamoto Musashi.) But I don't think I'm trying to prove that Miko's arc is 'tragic', per se- my larger argument is that inconsistencies in the text are a flaw in writing, to whatever extent that may or may not matter to anyone. (And I do think this means that Miko as a character can't exist and her story arc can't happen in the world-as-established later within the same story.)

    In a move that may be unprecedented, however, I would agree with Ruck that her flaws do, in fact, drive the story, and she does struggle with them, and she does have competing ideals that come into conflict, and she does have a character arc. It may be rushed, sustained by manipulative contrivance, clearly at variance with the author's earlier plans for the character and uncomfortably accommodating of the noxious bigotry surrounding her initial reception, but it is there. My complaint is usually more with people who try to claim that Miko is static and unchanging, when I consider it straightforward to observe that the version of Miko who refrained from killing Belkar and the version of Miko who does her damndest to kill Hinjo clearly have radically different underlying priorities.

    As The Giant pointed out a while back, it's Javert, that is the core of the Miko concept.

    Javert and Batman are not all that alike.

    Heck, Batman is not alike to himself. Javert is a complete character, with a complete arc that other characters (such as Miko or Vimes) can be compared and contrasted to. "Batman" is a mishmash of dozens of writers, over, what, 60+ years now*? With no permanent growth or thematic underpining that doesn't get re-imagined by the next guy to take over the reigns, Batman is a meaningless reference point unless it is specified which Batman you are talking about.

    Grey Wolf

    Where reality is an intruder
    And myth and legend thrive

    What I want to know now, is Miko's opinion on rock music.

    "The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in the future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present--they are real." --Aral Vorkosigan
