Mira, often simply called the Space Faerie, is an extremely powerful faerie who lives among the stars. She protects Neopia, Kreludor, and the Virtupets Space Station from threats from outer space. She is most famous for defeating Dr. Sloth by turning his own mutation ray against him. Mira rarely visits the surface of Neopia, and usually only does so in the case of an utmost emergency.
The Space Faerie has short blue hair, red eyes, dark skin, and four dragonfly-like wings. She is usually seen wearing a distinctive blue top with red accents and leggings that glitter like the night's sky. Mira is one of the racers available in Faerie Cloud Racers and Extreme Faerie Cloud Racers and is also the star of the game Invasion: Blastoids!. She is also the mascot for Neopets Premium. Mira is one of the many challengers that users can fight in the Battledome, and she also occasionally gives out quests to lucky users.
Arrival of Virtupets
- Main article: Arrival of Virtupets
One day, the Space Faerie intercepted a mysterious, coded message from the depths of space. Sensing an overwhelming evil approaching Neopia, she sent a telepathic transmission to all of the planet's inhabitants, warning them of the approaching danger.
Shortly after this, the Virtupets Space Station appeared in the sky above Neopia. The Space Faerie decided to face Dr. Sloth head on, but the Sloth was able to capture Mira and imprison her in the space station's control room. Weaken by this encounter, the Space Faerie sent a final plea to users. She asked users to liberate the Grundos by adopting them. Every time a Grundo was adopted, the Space Faerie regained a little bit of strength. After users adopted the 20,000 Grundos, the Space Faerie was strong enough to break free from her prison.
The Space Faerie arrived to confront Dr. Sloth just as he was firing his mutation ray at Neopia. Mira was able to reflect the power of the ray back on itself, causing the weapon to overload and explode. Dr. Sloth retreated, and all of Neopia was saved. The Space Faerie returned to space, and the now abandoned space station was turned over to the Grundos.
The Return of Dr. Sloth
- Main article: The Return of Dr. Sloth
Before the events of the story, the Space Faerie left to investigate a distubance in another galaxy. Unknown to her, this "disturbance" was merely one of Dr. Sloth's tricks designed to distract Mira while Sloth attacked the Virtupets Space Station. As soon as Mira realized that the disturbance was fake, she turned around and headed back towards the space station. Unfortunately, she had traveled so deep into space that she could not return in time to help the Resistance fight off Sloth's troops. As soon as she was within transmission range of the space station, the Space Faerie contacted Resistance Headquarters and informed them that her powerful magical token was mostly likely aboard Dr. Sloth's personal ship. Scout passed this information on to Gorix and Cylara who decided to sneak aboard Sloth's ship and retrieve the token. As the two traveled towards Sloth's ship, Mira taught Cylara the incantation to use the token's magic. Cylara later used this incantation to defeat Dr. Sloth by trapping him within the Space Faerie's token.

Better Than You
The Space Faerie has been a contestant on Better Than You four times:
|Date:||April 5, 2007||Oh my! Have you seen what's been happening on the Virtupets Space Station? We must help those poor Petpets. I know it will be hard for you to keep up with me, but please do your best to aid them as much as you can. I'll even give you a reward if you manage to outdo me!|
|Date:||October 22, 2009||Neopia's night skies are in trouble! I don't know if this is one of Dr. Sloth's evil schemes or just a really pretty form of pollution. All these spheres are making it pretty hard to fly around up here, though. It's going to take some dedicated spinning to clear this mess. You are going to help me, right?|
|Prize:||Adventures in Space|
|Date:||September 13, 2012||What in the name of the first faerie are you doing out in space, Neopian? Comets are heading straight for Neopia and I don't have time to be a tour guide! If you can't help out, then at least stay out of my way.|
|Date:||August 22, 2013||Fortunately, the universe doesn't always need saving from the likes of Dr. Sloth. I like to spend some of my free time playing with the wonders of the stars, like this little game. It can be quite relaxing.|
