Princess Mira Nova isn't your typical princess. She is a hot-head, a real firebrand. As a Tangean Royal from Tangea, she has blue skin, red hair, and can also ghost through walls; hence Tangean for ''intangibility''. Unlike other Tangean Royals (minus [[Fop Doppler]]), Mira Nova is more than eager to hand evil-doers swift, just butt-whoopings. She can be arrogant and cocky, often times clashing with Buzz, her captain. She can be impatient, and she also stutters when speaking; a habit throughout the series. Despite these shortcomings, she is a solid, decent friend and fighter to her team. She is an excellent shot, and along with that hard head, she won't quit until given the order. She is also confident in her abilities, although a little careless at times. As a Space Ranger, she doesn't like to be called "princess".

Unlike most other [[Tangean Royal]]s, she does not think herself superior to other species, and even had a brief romance with a [[Tangean Grounder]] named [[Romac]] (much to the displeasure of her father).

Mira Nova is one of four Space Rangers on Team Lightyear, and Buzz Lightyear's co-pilot. She is also a princess and heir to the throne of Tangea. She was inspired to join Star Command after Buzz saved her planet from the Evil Emperor Zurg

Physical Appearance

Mira is a young female Tangean Royal with long red hair, streaked with a paler reddish-orange, and a typical blue complexion. She has large blue eyes and a shapely form.

While in direct sunlight exposure, she can undergo what Tangeans call "yellowing"; their form of tanning that causes their skin to turn bright yellow, and this can also result in a sunburn.

History

Mira Nova was born on the planet Tangea into the Tangean Royal royal family. Raised to assume her father's throne, Mira first caught sight of Star Command, and the Space Rangers themselves, when Buzz Lightyear came to her world to stop Evil Emperor Zurg from taking over with his Hyper-Hornet. This was the first contact she had with a Space Ranger and ever since then, it had been her dream to enlist and serve; that drive ultimately leading her to become a member of Team Lightyear, a position she currently holds.

Her ex-boyfriend is Romac, a Tangean Grounder.

Personality

Princess Mira Nova isn't your typical princess. She is a hot-headed, impulsive, and desperate to be on the front lines rather than sitting on a throne. Unlike other Tangeans, Mira is perfectly comfortable interacting with other races, lacking the elitist attitudes shared by the rest of her people. Despite her humble nature, she can at times be arrogant and cocky, often times clashing with Buzz, her captain. She can be impatient, and has a tendency to fall into long strings of stream-of-conscious babbling; a habit throughout the series. Despite these shortcomings, she is a good friend and strong fighter to her team. She is an excellent shot, and along with that hard head, she won't quit until given the order. She is also confident in her abilities, although a little careless at times. As a Space Ranger, she doesn't like to be called "princess", preferring to be acknowledged as a person rather than royalty. Mira is also a very stubborn individual, sometimes deliberately ignoring advice and orders given by others.[1] This is largely due to constant clashings with her own people's elitist attitudes, especially her father, King Nova.
