The Miharu family is a relatively new addition within the Yamatai Star Empire. Though a minor clan, mostly consisting of young nekovalkyrja originally born as sprites onboard the YSS Miharu, it boasts a high level of technical expertise and shipboard proficiency.
The gold represents achievement for the clan and Yamatai as the goal of all things, as well as prosperity.
The sandy brown represents Miharu Mara, the first clan member and she who sacrificed herself so that the clan and Miharu's crew could live. It reminds clan members that Mara always is watching over them, and that all things they do build upon the field she laid out for them.
The “Reticle” circle symbolizes focus in all endeavors, and how one must not lose sight of the goal at hand. However, the lack of crosshairs is meant to reinforce not losing sight of the bigger picture, either.
The butterfly symbolizes the pursuit of “grace under pressure,” the clan's motto. Hinoto, clan mistress, explained it this way:
|“Even when a butterfly is at its most imperiled, be it from predators or other calamity, it always has grace. Even in death, the butterfly is graceful. So must we be, too.”|
As most of the Miharu clan players are no longer active on Star Army, it's not possible to obtain their permission to create new members of the clan and we ask that you respect their wishes by not making new characters in the Miharu clan.
Clan members have several different weapons at their disposal while at the chalet, including shotguns, rifles and NSPs. They also have the only remaining collection of “Himiko Custom” Type 28C NSPs.
The Shôshô bequeathed onto the clan's members and the ship's crew weapons forged from the wreckage of the Divine Arrows' starships. The weapons were based on Yui-class Scout blades, but each weapon was individual and without replication.
Below are listed just some of the given weapons.
