Name: Grey, Miranda 'Nanda'
Grade: 10th grade.
Extra Curricular Activity: Art Club, National Art Honors Society, Political Action Club, Junior Statesmen of America, Students for a Democratic Society, Varsity Girls Tennis, Varsity Girls Golf
School: Barry Coleson High
Appearance: Her hair is long, and coppery blonde with a lustrous almost tantalizing glow, styled in two french braided plaits, and her eyes are a mesmerizing shade of sorrowful grey. She weighs exactly 104 lbs. and stands at approximately 5'4 inches tall. Miranda has a beautiful face, with luscious heart shaped lips and a few freckles. Her body is naturally svelt, but healthy looking and her clothing style is a mix of bohemian and vintage attire. She currently wears a white corset style top and a flowing white bohemian style skirt, with sand colored thongs and a variety of jewelry made from hemp.
Biography: Her life was essentially nothing special. She lived for the first fourteen years of her life in middle to upper class suburbia with her parents and younger sister Carmen. Her overbearing mother and passive father never really seemed happy, apparently only staying together for the sake of their daughters. The rift between their parents caused Miranda and Carmen, affectionately called Minny, to cling to one another for solace and support, and become very close. Miranda aspired to be an artista from a very young age, always aware that it was her calling in life. Her beauty brought her many male admirers, including a lonely shop clerk, Frederick Clegg. His infatuation with the beautiful girl drove him to a dangerous obsession, which culminated in the preparation for and ultimate abduction of Miranda that fateful June afternoon. Tricking her into thinking he had run over a small dog, and was in need of assistance, he lured Miranda near his van where he proceeded to gag her with a rag soaked in chloroform (knocking the beautiful Miranda unconscious). He took her to his lonely cabin in the remote rural areas of upstate New York. At first Miranda feared she would be sexually assaulted and murdered, but only became more fearful and anxious when the strange Clegg proceeded to do nothing of the sort. In fact, the man's kindness was almost eerie. Clegg gave Miranda everything her heart desired except for her freedom, keeping her in a cellar type dwelling less than a mile from his home. Clegg claimed he only wanted for Miranda to love him as he loved her, but Miranda knew that would never be possible. He had abducted her and was keeping her prisoner by force after all. Miranda tried countless times to escape, and kept a secret diary of her experiences of loneliness and longing for the outside world. Eventually, Miranda did managed to escape, but only after almost two months as her abductor's prisoner. Clegg was arrested and found guilty in the wake of her miraculous escape, the details of which she has never totally exposed to anyone. Upon her return home, she was an instant celebrity, her diary published the following year. In 2005, she finally faced her fears of leaving her family and hometown to go on the school trip with her classmates. The rest is, shall we say, SotF history.
Number: Girl No. 24
The above biography is as written by Pickle. Slight edits and alterations correcting spelling and grammar errors but not changing the context of this article as a whole have been made.
Designated Weapon: Chinese Long Sword (Da Dao)
Conclusions: Hey, maybe G24 brought a diary along on the trip. She'll be famous all over again...that is if she survives. I have a strange feeling, though, that this one'll last pretty long using simple wit. But, who knows when it comes to the ACT?
Game Evaluations Edit
Killed by: Daphne Rudko
Collected Weaponry: Chinese Long Sword (issued weapon)
Enemies: Daphne Rudko
Mid-Game Evaluation: Miranda began her game at the school building, and quite literally ran into her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Serjeantson as she traversed the building. After a short exchange, the duo decided that a team-up was in order, and opted to head for the waterfall to replenish their water. Their journey to the waterfall sent them by the makeshift hospital. The hospital had been occupied by a slew of other students: Daisuke Andou, Aiden Ambrose, Jeremy Torres, Fred Hughes, Heather Pendergast, Glenn Hughes, and Mallory DeLuca being among them. Inside the hospital, Aiden let everyone in on his escape plan, and the group decided to aide him in trying to escape the island. However, someone was watching outside. That someone was Daphne Rudko. When Eddie unknowingly approached the bushes she'd been hiding in, the girl lashed out, jamming her paring knife into Eddie's neck and killing him almost instantly. Eddie's death threw Miranda into a temporary insanity that would prove to be fatal for her. Miranda burst out of the school building and ran into Daphne, who stabbed her to death before Miranda ever knew what hit her.
Post-Game Evaluation: For someone who was built up to be such a survivor... someone who was locked in a cellar for two months by a deranged man... someone who had undergone all of the trials and tribulations of Miranda Grey, I have to say, she was quite a flop in the SOTF ACT. At the first sight of murder she panicked and sent herself to her doom.
Memorable Quotes: "I should have known it was you. You never did know how to treat a lady did you? Now please point that gun elsewhere, or I might have to consider you deadly and kick your ass." - to Eddie Serjeantson upon encountering him at the school.
"It's alright, I know you're scared. You don't have to be scared any more baby, I'm 104 lbs. of pure fighting machine and I won't let anyone harm a hair on your head. You can cut the faux macho protector act." - to Eddie Serjeantson, school building.
"Well... okay, but if we run into trouble along the way, remember it was your genius idea to head there ... and if it turns out to be the most prime of positions we could have selected, you should kindly recall that I made no objections... now shall we?" - to Eddie, school building.
- According to the storyline, Miranda was the ex-girlfriend of fellow SOTF participant Eddie Serjeantson.
