Favorite Fictional Women: Miranda Lotto
Miranda of D. Gray Man is an interesting character to find in an action manga. She isn’t physically strong, and she isn’t a fighter, but she’s one of the most useful character’s on the heroes’ team because of both her ability and her personal strength. Miranda can stop and even selectively turn back time, but only for as long as she can feed her own strength into her Innocence weapon.  As soon as she let’s go or passes out, everything reverts to normal -and any injury or destruction that occurred during the frozen time span comes back all at once. It may seem like an odd power, but Miranda has saved the life of almost every main character in this series at least once, by holding off their injuries until the end of a fight or the arrival of a medic, or by holding together a destroyed ship until the exorcists and surviving sailors could safely disembark. Each time, she is stretched to her limit and experiences huge amounts of pain and pressure, but her will never cracks. The strength of Miranda’s resolve is literally the only thing holding the exorcists together at some points in the story.
This is perhaps even more impressive considering her personality.  Miranda starts the series miserable and lacking a single shred of self-esteem; even after her significant character development, she remains shy, self-deprecating and overly modest. It’s wonderful to see her gain confidence as she realizes her usefulness to her teammates, but by the present point in the series she has yet to become the self-confident woman I wish she could be.  Still, one would never imagine that within this timid woman lies the strength to hold back time itself.
