‘MYRA – Character Profile

It’s been a long time since I’ve divulged any further details about QWIXOTIC, other than progress reports. I think it’s time again that we get into the QWIXOTIC Universe and find out about its key players…




How far do you think someone would go to defend their beliefs? How far would you go? Would you compromise on those very beliefs if it meant life or death… not for you, but for people you care about? For society? For innocents…?

That’s something ‘MYRA struggles with everyday.


‘MYRA’s seen a lot of injustice from a young age. The bastardization of democracy and downfall of society has affected her firsthand, more so than others. Born into a conservative Muslim household as Humayra, her family suffered a lot just to survive. However, a turning point in ‘MYRA’s life forced her to come to a tragic realization; that to uphold the morals and values instilled in her, she has to go against those very beliefs… so that others are never put in her place, and never have to experience such a revelation.


‘MYRA in the QWIXOTIC Webcomic is a mature, devout Muslim woman that also kicks ass if the situation calls for it. Her intentions to help the 8 ½ and join the fight against the unjust Server is something she constantly struggles with everyday. Her religion’s intolerance towards violence and her decision to adopt it and lead others in that way of life as a necessity, causes her constant regret and guilt.

She learned a long time ago that along with her committement and submission to Allah, she also serves her people, and will do anything to maintain their rights and dignity. She now fights, for a better world. She fights for change. She prays… for her soul.
