Miri Rhyza hails from the remote and primitive Burkaqua Tribe that lives on the jungle planet Juraika and is the younger sister of Lilika. Long before the events of the story, She and their mother, Amni, had been out in the Jungle picking fruit when they were attacked by The Individer. In the attack, their mother was killed by the beast. Lilika was knocked away from her sister, whom the beast had laid eyes upon next. In Lilika's memory, she fought valiantly against the beast...but her blows came to naught. It almost seemed as if, for all the good it was doing, she was striking at water. The beast attacked Miri and took her eyesight. Years later, when Miri is to be sacrificed to the "Star God" in order to halt the spread of the Dark Fruit, Qrann Ijiru who has feelings for her is aganist the sacrifice but before he can do anything the beast appears again. This time, Lilika defeated the Individer with the help of Jaster, Kisala.
