Miana (ミアナ?), dubbed mIana, also known as a Baby Chick by the Houtua is a secondary character who was introduced in the 2017 Godzilla film, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, and subsequently reappeared in the 2018 sequels, Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, and Godzilla: The Planet Eater. She is a shrine maiden for the Houtua, alongside her sister, Maina.
Miana's appearance is a stark contrast to most of the film's main cast, featuring unique, white paint designs across her face, and body. She possesses white hair (the bangs of which look remarkably similar to feathers), and green eyes, alongside a more tanned complexion.
Her attire consists of some light fabric, and she possesses a mask that covers most of her face. Her full design reveals that she wears brown sandals as well.
Miana was shown to be much more curious and explorative with the new humans in her and her sister's presence. When presented with a wrist-mounted display, she inquisitively stared, while her sister scoffed at her and seemed more withdrawn. Haruo Sakaki was able to discern Miana from Maina by her facial expressions, which were significantly less aggressive than her sister's.
Miana was shown to take to Haruo relatively quickly, something noted by other characters. Their first interaction was a staggered speaking of Haruo's name, "Ha. Ru. Oi", which Miana attempted to say sparingly following this encounter. It should be noted that Miana initially ran from Haruo, and was easily startled by his presence, however, this attitude towards him was quickly dropped. She also seems to have romantic feelings toward Haruo as was seen when she gave a downtrodden expression after seeing him kiss Yuko. In the trailer for Godzilla: The Planet Eater, she is seen kissing Haruo, confirming she does in fact have a romantic attachment to him.
Maina is Miana's sister, and the two are nearly bound at the hip, almost always being in each other's presence. In combat, the two are shown to be very proficient together, using their bows and arrows against Servum to a startling degree.
Following Godzilla Earth's attack, she would be seen attending to something in her hut, before looking over to an incapacitated Haruo, removing her mask, and staring silently.
Miana would then be seen again, as Haruo startles her and she runs off promptly. The two reunite quickly, as Haruo is helped out a swampy region by Miana, with the former introducing himself. Miana struggles to comprehend what Haruo is saying, his name, only mumbling "Hey", imitating Haruo's original introduction to her. She then sounds out Haruo's name, upon the latter's prompting, and runs off, following a high pitched noise, which leads her to a group of survivors.
Later, Miana and Maina would telepathically communicate with said survivors in their underground abodes. The duo, along with the Houtua alongside them would question the group's intentions, and why they "burned their yard with a rain of fire", referring to the landing bombings initiated in order to land on the planet's surface. Haruo would express how it was necessary for landing purposes, and would also apologize for the misunderstanding in attacking the duo. When their goal of destroying Godzilla Earth was raised, the two expressed skepticism in light of other's failures in fighting the god-like monster, including their own god.
Following this exchange, the two would request they go along with Haruo and his comrades in their search for Mechagodzilla, and would subsequently save Yuko Tani from her death by Servum. Following Metphies' arrival and the departure of a few soldiers to the Aratrum, the duo, along with the group would arrive at Mechagodzilla City. Following a short fight with Servum, ending in the beast's skewering by nanometal, the two would return to their tribe, who'd also followed, but not before deeming the city sinister, and poison, much to Metphies' confusion.
Long after they seemingly departed, the two would return, but remain by the outskirts of Mechagodzilla City, observing both Yuko and Haruo as they walked on one of the city's many bridges. They would witness the two kiss, with Miana's expression turning oddly downtrodden from the act.
Miana would be seen with her sister as the battle against Godzilla Earth commenced, with the two telepathically communicating with Haruo as he began to falter. Following this, Miana and Maina would witness Haruo's ultimate decision in choosing to destroy Mechagodzilla City's command post, over killing Godzilla, with the two being visibly shocked.
Miana will play a role in the conclusion to the AniGoji trilogy.
Miana was first seen tending to an incapacitated Haruo, following Godzilla Earth's attack on the remaining human forces. As Haruo awoke, Miana darted off, and would later witness Haruo staring at Godzilla.
