Meia Gisborn

Birthday: June 10 Meia Gisborn, at first, has the behavior of an Amazon; she detests men and is disgusted whenever Hibiki saves her. She rarely smiles (only doing so a few times on the first season and the second season,including the time she smiled when she had to babysit Ezra's baby, Karu,and during the final fight with the enemy), suffers from claustrophobia, and has a traumatic past. As a young girl, the life support systems on her home quadrant failed, and there was a mass evacuation with not enough lifeboats. She lost her parents when they pushed her aboard the last ship off the quadrant among the crowd. Alone, she resorted to a life of crime and street fights to make a living, due to the insecurity she felt from people blaming her parents for the catastrophe. She joined the pirates when Magno Vivian appeared and tossed a laser ring to her asking her to join them. With a new will to live, she gained ranks quickly. As squadron commander, she leads the other Dreads in battle, and is usually called "leader" or "chief" by others. Everyone appreciates her and normally tries to throw a surprise birthday party for her. However, she despises such occasions and once she flew off in her Dread to scout ahead of the Nirvana, just so that she would not be irritated by the crew. When her Dread unites with Hibiki's Vanguard, they become the Vandread Meia-type (White Wing), which resembles a silver eagle. Its main, and only known form of attack is a high-velocity ram, that pierces nearly all enemy units in its path. (Source: Wikipedia) While Meia never openly admits if she has romantic feelings for Hibiki or not, it is clear just after halfway through the first season that he is the only male she doesn't hate outright, and Capt. Magno even comments that of all the women on board the Nirvana, Meia most resembles Hibiki in terms of temperment and personality. In her quarters aboard the Nirvana, Meia keeps a jewelry box (a present from her "O ma") filled with a few keepsakes and a family photo that she managed to save from her home.
