Miko - Battleborn Character Profile Page
The last surviving bud of a once planet-sized fungal colony, Miko is widely known as a compassionate and very skilled healer. Now more of a combat botanist, Miko devotes her time to restoring all which can be restored and throwing kunai at things which cannot be restored.
Miko the Mushroom has joined the other members of the nature-loving Eldrid faction to fight against the Varelsi and compete with the other factions for control over Solus, the last star in the universe. Miko is a support character and therefore focuses on healing and helping out other team members for the most time. Miko’s primary weapon is the Kunai this poisonous weapon should not be underestimated as an offensive weapon. Pressing the right trigger throws them one by one, while the left trigger unleashes seven weaker blades at once in a horizontal spread.

KUNAI – WEAPON OF MIKO
While fungi and buds of A. Mikollopria are not known to defend themselves with thorns or other hazards, they are known to be highly adaptable to their environment.
Miko is capable of rapidly sprouting well-balanced fibrous spikes from its hands that it hurls with great skill at distance. Additionally, Miko has been seen applying poisonous acidic secretions onto these spikes which are hazardous to most biological and non-biological sentients.
It is believed among the Eldrid Vigilant that this is not a natural ability of Miko, but was a learned adaptation after a violent encounter with the blade-throwing Jennerit spymistress Deande.
SPECIES CONTACT REPORT
“Concerning A. Mikollopria – The Miko”
from The Red Observer on 19209 C.R. the 173rd day
Planet-sized fungal organism A. Mikollopria budded, at the urging of Eldrid ambassadors embroiled in current War of Being against the Jennerit Empire.
The “buds” have taken on humanoid qualities and shapes to better relate with other beings. They seem to share a hive mind with their home planet, but a few are notable in their uniqueness.
Among those is one we simply call “Miko”. Miko has shared its (Her? Their?) desire to accompany our Eldrid recovery missions, even after a Lorrian forcibly removed its head (which, apparently, releases bio-friendly spores with healing properties for most lifeforms). Never fear – new “heads” grow back in a matter of minutes. In the time it took Miko to grow a head, its previous fungal cap purged the Lorrian of three known substance addictions and a minor tumor.
It is the recommendation of this Observer that “Miko” be grafted (ha!) onto our science expedition at once, aiding with our medical unit, and providing us with additional insight into this fascinating species.
Hats Off to the Healer
(Miko was once asked why it continued to heal when the loss of the universe was inevitable. Response archived below for posterity.)
So much wonder. So much wonder.
So much wonder left within. So much wonder left without. What comes is unseen until it is seen; and until then is unblossomed wonder.
To see is to wait. To wait is to remain. To remain is to live. To live is to see.
Darkness can be seen. Light can be seen. Both observed, but what has yet to be seen is which one fascinates us more: the Darkness or the Light? We thrive in the Light. We bloom in the Dark.
There is that which has yet to be seen.
So much wonder. So much wonder.
(Candid recording of Miko, speaking to its unreleased sporelings. Audio attached, transcript included below.)
We were young. We reached and spread over acres and eras. We embraced an endless horizon shaped by our own hands.
We were our whole world. We were so young.
Then, we grew. We were older. We witnessed the passing of the sky, the last sliver of sun. We lost ourselves to the expanse. We fell beyond our own reach.
Never again will we be whole.

Report. Report. Report. I’m writing a report. Alright. I get it. I need to do paperwork to qualify as an operative. Report? Okay. Here goes. “Ick.” How’s that for a report? “Ick.”
Look. I know Miko is like this hive-minded medical genius or something. “Doctor of a Thousand Beings” or something, right? (By the way… Miko has a… smell. Have you noticed? It’s like lonely, rotten tofu.)
And yeah. I get it. Miko is a them. And so is this… what are you calling it, “Kelvin”? The ice thing? But… ICK! Have you see them together? Miko says they’re talking, but honestly, whatever they’re doing looks nothing like any conversation I’ve ever seen. They’re like… melding? Molding? Something that involves Miko trading some of its stuff for some of Kelvin’s stuff and… ick.
The only reason I’m STILL helping Miko with this is that it… she… they… IT? WHATEVER! Miko wants me to go recover some Aztanti skeletal thing. Says it will help with Kelvin’s identity or something. Okay. That sounds fun.
