Spirit Who leaves Fate to the Dream of Eternity (TH03)
An Evil Spirit (TH05)
Mima is an Evil Spirit that haunts the area around the Hakurei Shrine. She is very confident in her abilities, and even boastful of them. Although she claims during Story of Eastern Wonderland to want revenge against the entire human race, it's unknown what Mima's motivations for that are. She is also attempting to revive herself. Although she is often called a ghost, during Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream Mima denies being dead and tries to explain herself as being "just a soul." Unless further information about her is revealed we may never know just what exactly she is or how she came to be that way.
