Miria's Ship [Ai]
Caption: [Miria's Ship] When the ship received orders from Moruku Rapuramizu to seize the Protoculture Ruins, it completely destroyed the SDF-1 Macross's main gun.

The nickname for the Medium Gunship class Meltrandi Forces' warship that Miria 639 embarked in. The ship has great manoeuvrability due to its large amount of thrust, and it also has great offensive abilities, such as High-Output Short-Range Guided Focusing Beam Guns. Due to that, it often engaged opponents on its own.

Mylene Flare Jīnasu [7, 7Gin, D7]
Caption: [Mylene Flare Jīnasu] Born in the union of an Earthling and a Zentrādi, Mylene was evidence of peace and became the key to releasing the seal on the Protoculture ruins on Planet Rax.

A vocalist and the bass guitarist in Fire Bomber. The invasion by the Varōta Forces occurred on the day of Mylene's debut in the band. After that, she began singing on the battlefield as a member of the Sound Force Civilian Cooperative Unit with Basara—who sings on the battlefield—and the power of songs blossoms as a presence that can oppose the Protodevilun.* Mylene is also known as the seventh daughter of Maximilian Jīnasu and Miria Farīna Jīnasu. She inherited Valkyrie piloting skills from her parents, and has a straightforward nature with an unyielding spirit. While continuing to associate with and being attracted to the tenderness and broad-mindedness of Unified Forces pilot Gamlin Kizaki, the matchmaking partner forced on Mylene by Miria, Mylene realized that she was gradually being attracted to Basara, who persists with her musicianship. After the Varōta War, Mylene sustained the band in place of Basara, who had set out on a journey. However, with the encouragement of the band's leader Rei Lovelock, Mylene left City 7 to pursue Basara.

* Translator's note: in the original, the last two sentences ("After the Varōta War, Mylene sustained the band in place of Basara, who had set out on a journey. However, with the encouragement of the band's leader Rei Lovelock, Mylene left City 7 to pursue Basara.") were inserted here.

Minmei Attack [M, 7, F]

The allied forces of the Macross and the Buritai Fleet upset the Zentrādi—who couldn't tolerate culture—with Lynn Minmei's songs as a do-or-die tactic that reversed the overwhelming military power difference in the final decisive battle of the First Interstellar War. In so doing, they defeated Bodoruzā, the commander of the Zentrādi Forces. This was later called the "Minmei Attack", and it became the common name for a tactic that upsets the enemy (and invigorates one's own armed forces) with songs. The tactic originated in Ichijō Hikaru.* Exsedor Formo suggested showing a kiss, making the tactic even more effective.*

* Translator's note: originally was: "The tactic originated in Ichijo Hikaru, and Exsedor Formo suggested... ."

Minmei Attack [II]

The songs of Lynn Minmei—which had a great effect on the Zentrādi Forces in the past war—were systematized as "Operation Minmei" after the war in the Minmei Attack, and the tactic is performed at the start of an attack on enemies who are upset by songs. The Minmei Attack was built as a defensive system in the front line stations, and was unbeatable against the Lost Zentrādi Fleets that rarely appeared. However, the Minmei Attack did not work on the Mardūk Forces, who used songs as weapons. Major singers, such as Wendy Rider, are registered as Minmei Attack singers, and their songs and images are broadcast in the Minmei Attack at the discretion of the commander at that time.

After that, she took the name Moaramia Farīna Jīnasu and became a member of the Dancing Skull with the call sign Purple Skull in 2022. Her nickname is Moa. She grew up with a cheerful personality and a light energy. In truth, she is an experimental body for the analysis of the Zentrādi factor conducted by the Unified Forces reactionary power, and in 2030, she was greatly shocked to be engaged in combat and defeating an experimental body who is another her that had invaded [Unified Government territory] as a weapon of the rebel organization "Iron Discipline". However, she overcame that shock and began to search for a way of life beyond that of being a soldier. [Source: Macross M3]
