The mightiest hero can come from the humblest beginnings. The great warrior you know as Mihile did not always go by that name. Once upon a time he was an overworked stock boy at Mr. Limbert’s General Store, known only as “kiddo.” Little did that young boy know that his life was about to change forever…
Empress Cygnus long suspected that there was more to the boy than what met the eye, so she and Neinheart decided to test the young warrior. It wasn’t until Cygnus watched him defeat her minions with ease that she knew the truth for sure. Neinheart was skeptical, but Cygnus’s faith never wavered. She explained to the boy that his father was a warrior of great power; a warrior for good and a warrior for the light. He had left his infant son with the old man Limbert, planning to one day return, but he was never able to escape the great evil that defeated him. She went on to call the nameless kiddo “Mihile,” which means “Born of Light” in honor of his fallen father, Chromile, the Knight of Light.
The young Empress and her faithful follower Neinheart brought the boy with a new name back with them to Ereve. There he learned that “Only the darkest night can produce the most brilliant sunrise!”

- There is no gender selection with Mihile – he can only be male!
- Each Mihile character has its own individual Cash Inventory not shared with other characters.

- After completing the 4th job advancement, you can obtain Empress’s Shout and Empress’s Prayer through quests, and you will be able to create an Ultimate Explorer.
- Lv. 30 Mihiles will get their own cards added to the Character Card system: Weapon DEF: +2/3/4/5% for Lv.30-69, Lv.70-119, Lv.120-199, Lv.200.
