Fairy [F]
妖精

Sheryl Nome's recovery song when she took a holiday after she had suspended activities when she had felt unwell. It was also the song she used when she was working for charity to cheer up the depressed people immediately after the Macross Frontier Fleet was hit with a crisis due to the mass outbreak of Vajra. It's possible to say that "Fairy" is the representative song of the reborn Sheryl.

An idol singer who dashed into stardom with the role of Mao Nome in "Bird Human -Tori No Hito-", and is well-known in the galaxy as the "Super Dimensional Cinderella". Her appeal is attracting people with her innocent cheerfulness. As a matter of fact, Ranka is a survivor of the 117th Research Fleet—which was destroyed by the Vajra—and suffers from dissociative amnesia; in which she lost her memories due to the shock of the fleet's destruction and overracts when people close to her are injured. After that incident, Ozuma Lee, who was in the Unified Forces at the time, adopted Ranka as his little sister. Also, Ranka's mother Ranshe Mei, a member of the research fleet, had the V-type infectious disease. Ranka, having been born from Ranshe, had a physical make-up that carried the same Fold Bacteria as the Vajra in her intestines, and shared sensations with them. Because of this power, Ranka was used by Grace O'Conner and the other as a tool to seize the Vajra Queen. However, as Ranka connects her heart with the Vajra via songs, it obstructed the ambitions of Grace and the others. In addition, Brera Sterne is her long-lost biological older brother.

As a symbol of culture, Minmei's songs made Warera and the others decide to go into exile, and her songs became the key to ending the war. After the First Interstellar War, Minmei toured around the Earth and became the support for the people rebuilding the world. However, she temporarily lost sight of the meaning of singing due to various factors, such as feuds with her lover Lynn Kaifun. Shortly afterwards, after making a comback, Minmei departed on the first Super Long Range Emigrant Fleet Megaroad-01. After that, contact with Minmei came to an end when her fleet went in pursuit of music that was flowing from the central region of the galaxy.
