Appearance Edit Appearance sectionEdit

Miranda Lotto when Allen and Lenalee first met her in the Rewinding Town.

Miranda has pale skin and dark circles around her eyes. Initially, she kept her hair up in a bun constantly and wore a dress which made her look much older than she actually was. Since meeting with Allen Walker and Lenalee Lee and beginning her quest to become an Exorcist though, she wears her hair down and has elected to wear slightly less conservative attire. Miranda has also been seen wearing gloves to cover the puncture scars on her hands, and is rarely, if ever, seen without a pair.

Miranda is the only Exorcist that controls a non-offensive anti-Akuma weapon, and often keeps it invoked even after reaching her physical limit. When it was pointed out that in order to keep her Innocence activated for the duration of the journey to Japan she would have to stay awake, she answered that she could stay awake for days on end. She attributes this to her deep depression over losing so many jobs keeping her awake in the past.

Personality Edit Personality sectionEdit

Miranda in her Youth

She often feels inferior and useless, partially because she was fired from all one hundred jobs she previously tried to work. While she can be reclusive and detached from the rest of the world, she is a kind and friendly person who genuinely wants to do her best and help others. Her klutzy and at times erratic nature is often the subject of comic relief within the series. She tends to constantly apologize for everything she does, even if the act is helpful. Her helpless attitude seems to get on the nerves of fellow exorcist, Yu Kanda. In her hometown, she was often mocked and ridiculed in a song by the town’s children who looked upon her presence as a sort of jinx.

Rewinding Town Arc Edit Rewinding Town Arc sectionEdit

Initially seen when she is about to be killed by an Akuma, which is holding her against an alleyway wall by her throat, instead of worrying about her eminent death, Miranda is shown stunned by the fact that the “today” she is perceiving is not the “today” she was expecting, apparently knowing exactly how her day should go and knowing the Akuma is not part of it[1]. After she is saved by Allen Walker, who she notes is also not part of her regular “today,” Miranda flees the scene and returns to her home, where she is mortified to see that the date on the paper is the same. She then glances at the clock and counts down, and when her neighbors start fighting as soon as her countdown is over, Miranda realizes that, in her town, October 9th has come for the thirteenth time[2]. After polishing her clock, she leaves her home again and dodges a pile of dog feces thrown at her by a group of children who then proceed to tease her. As she moves on, Miranda reflects on how she is the only person in town who realizes that October 9th has repeated itself thirteen times, and as she notes how nothing changes she notices Allen pass through the crowd in front of her. Stunned to see him, she proceeds to follow him.[3].

When Allen meets Lenalee Lee at a cafe and the two talk about the mission they are on, Miranda sits several booths behind them and listens in on their conversation. When Allen notices her, Miranda tries to flee through the window, only to have Allen grab her dress and explain the situation to her[4]. Miranda joins them and expresses her relief that someone other than her is able to tell that time is passing oddly in the town, inadvertently giving the two Exorcists the impression that she is losing her mind. Miranda then lunges at Allen and pleads for him to save her.

Miranda pleads for Allen to save her

Just then, Allen notices something odd at the bar, and as he activates his Innocence and comes to the conclusion that the strange occurrences happening in the town must be linked to Miranda, several patrons turn into Akuma and attack them[5]. As Allen stays behind to fight them, Lenalee activates her Dark Boots and carries Miranda to safely, Miranda shedding tears of horror as she looks back and watches the cafe explode.

After Lenalee has taken Miranda to her home, Miranda panics and loosens a chain necklace around her neck, nearly dropping a key hanging from it. She dives from her table to save it, and when Lenalee deduces the key is for the grandfather clock in the room and asks Miranda if it is important to her[6].

Miranda then explains that she is one of those people who simply isn’t good at anything she genuinely tries at, revealing that she had no friends as a child and has lost every job she ever had because of her awkwardness. One day, though, she noticed a grandfather clock sitting outside of the shop, and after the store manager explained to her that no one had been able to turn the clock on, Miranda took the key and tried[7]. When the clock worked, Miranda and the shop keeper were equally stunned, and the shop keeper urged Miranda to take the clock for her own. Feeling the clock had accepted her, even though she was useless, Miranda ended up buying the clock.

Later that evening, when Allen has arrived at the apartment and explained the situation, Miranda sequesters herself in the corner of the room with her clock, polishing it and bemoaning the fact that the Akuma are after her and that she has no idea why. When she tells Allen and Lenalee to fix the town, Allen promises that he will, but explains that they can only do it with her help. When Allen asks for Miranda’s assistance, telling her to “Let tomorrow come,” Miranda suddenly snaps upright and walks over to her bed, immediately going to sleep[8].

As soon as she falls asleep, Miranda’s grandfather clock literally sucks in the time everything in the town has experienced throughout that day, the hands of the clock turning back until, both physically and chronologically, the day has completely restarted at 7 am[9]. Miranda reawakens with absolutely no memory of having gone to bed.

Upon inspecting the clock and realizing that Exorcists can’t touch it[10], Allen deduces that the clock, itself, is the source of the anomaly within the town and that it is the Innocence he and Lenalee have been looking for. After marveling upon how special her clock is, Miranda turns on Lenalee and Allen with a knife, afraid they plan on breaking her “friend.” After the two Exorcists manage to calm her down, Lenalee asks Miranda to try to remember what had last happened before the time anomaly started. Miranda recalls that she had just gotten fired from her one hundredth job and that she had gone home, gotten drunk against her clock, and wished that “tomorrow wouldn’t come.” When they realize that the clock had answered Miranda’s wish, Lenalee wonders if Miranda isn’t an Accommodator[11]. The two teens then urge Miranda to try to wish for time to go back to normal, but the attempt fails.

Three days later, on the thirty-fourth October 9th, Allen has gotten a job alongside Miranda advertising at a theater, Allen and Lenalee having hypothesized that the clock would turn things back to normal if Miranda had something in her life to be positive about so that she wouldn’t dread time moving forward[12]. Things seem to be going well until Allen takes a break to talk to Lenalee, during which Miranda has the money for the theater tickets she has been gathering stolen. While Lenalee and Allen take off after the thief, the director of the theater calls Miranda useless[13].

Miranda begins to cry and curse herself, openly questioning why her clock had to be the Innocence. Road Kamelot, who has been in the town searching for the Innocence, overhears Miranda and, taking advantage of Allen and Lenalee’s absence, Road captures Miranda and seizes her clock from her apartment, leaving a note that reads “Thank you, Exorcists” written on the wall where the clock had been in Miranda’s blood[14].

Road takes Miranda somewhere and nails Miranda’s hands to the grandfather clock. When Miranda begs to be set free, Road remarks that she’ll let Miranda go when she’s dead.

After Lenalee and Allen, who have been fighting the three Akuma from before, are knocked unconscious and captured, Allen awakens to find himself nailed to a wall with Miranda nearby, still nailed to her grandfather clock[15].. Allen then notices that Road has Lenalee with her, and that while Lenalee’s eyes are open as if she is conscious, she is unresponsive to Road having changed her clothes and done her hair.

As Road proceeds to taunt and torture Allen, revealing that she is a human known as a Noah and not an Akuma, Miranda can only watch in horror and beg for help. When Road makes to impale Miranda with countless, spike-like candles, Allen, severely injured and blind in one eye after Road gouged it out, shields Miranda with his body and pulls the spikes out of her hands[16].

Miranda activating her Innocence.

While Miranda initially scrambles away, when Allen assures her that he is alright after she begs for him not to die, Miranda quickly throws herself forward again and shields Allen’s body with her own. The attacking Akuma taunt Miranda, asking her what she could possibly do, Miranda wonders, herself, what she’s trying to do before protesting incoherently. As she does, the hands on her clock move, and the area around her and Allen glows[17].

In her mind, Miranda reflects on how, even though she knows she can’t do anything, she tries, anyway, knowing she shouldn’t bother. Even as she thinks about how stupid her attempts are, Miranda’s clock levitates and warps, reforming as a giant clock face above her and Allen that proceeds to suck out the time of their injuries from their bodies[18]. Once they are both healed, Allen activates his Cross and reaches outside of the domed barrier Miranda’s newly formed Innocence has erected, grabbing the chair Lenalee is in and pulling it into the barrier.

Once Lenalee is healed, Allen explains to her that Miranda’s Innocence saved them. Miranda, who is stunned, sheds a tear when Allen thanks her[19].

Revitalized, Allen and Lenalee leave Miranda’s time barrier and start to fight, leaving Miranda to have a small panic attack over being thanked[20].

After the three Akuma are killed during the battle, Road flees and the area Allen, Lenalee and Miranda are left in, which is shown to be nothing more than a room inside of a giant present in a dimension, seemingly, separated from reality, begins to crumble[21]. Allen wakes up back in Miranda’s apartment, stunned, and is then called over by Lenalee, who is kneeling beside Miranda.

The clock face of Miranda’s Innocence is hovering behind her, and it becomes obvious that Miranda is straining greatly to keep the invocation going so the “time” of the injuries they took won’t return[22]. Lenalee and Allen urge Miranda to let the invocation go, but Miranda refuses, not wanting the reason Allen had thanked her, the first time she had ever been thanked for anything, to mean nothing.

Allen and Lenalee assure Miranda that they will be fine, and after Miranda lets the invocation die she rushes to the manager of her apartment complex and urges him to call for a doctor, as Lenalee and Allen’s grievous wounds have returned.

Miranda going off to her new job as an Exorcist.When Allen next awakens, it is to Komui tending to his wounds. Komui then gives Allen a message from Miranda, in which she thanks Allen and Lenalee and reveals she has just left to begin her training so she can become an Exorcist[23].

Powers and Abilities Edit Powers and Abilities sectionEdit

Stamina: Miranda has markedly incredible stamina, able to stay awake for days at a time [24], force the invocation of her Innocence to continue well beyond her limits[25], and even shield small groups of people from attacks from Level Four Akuma [26] and even the Earl[27].

Innocence Edit Innocence sectionEdit

"Time Record" InvokedTime Record (刻盤(タイムレコード), Taimurekōdo): Miranda’s equipment-type Innocence takes the form of a disk located on her right arm. This weapon was created from the original clock that created the repeating town. When activated, it appears from her right arm and “slides” to her wrist. The disk has two green, glowing circles, with circles orbiting the center. With it, she can use the following techniques:
  • Time Recovery (時間回復 (リカバリー), Rikabarī): This sets up a time zone where anything in it will recover and heal automatically. When invoked, a giant clock face appears above the zone being affected; however, if damage is made to this clock face, Miranda will feel pain. This power is only temporary; once Miranda stops her power, all damage suffered earlier will return, as well as wounds suffered during the time that she used her Innocence. It cannot bring the dead back to life, nor did it have enough power to stop the download of the ark. However, it was able to bring back the Akuma Egg even after Lulu Bell had stolen it, although it was later said that Miranda’s Innocence could not erase time, only reverse it.
    • Miranda can sense when the ‘time’ of a person who is under the effects of Time Recovery has come to an end; in other words, she can tell when Time Recovery’s effects are abruptly cut off, be they because of death or other reasons.
Miranda in Time Out.
  • Time Out (時間停止 (タイムアウト), Taimuauto): A defensive technique, which creates a space where the time stops, negating any attack that comes into that. This ability was instrumental in protecting her comrades during the Battle of Edo and was essential to Allen and Lenalee’s victory over Road Kamelot in the rewinding town. While this ability is invoked, any opponent who enters the space will find themselves immediately exiting the same way they came in while allies are able to enter freely. It is likely that Miranda’s will is what determines who can and cannot enter Time Out.
