This page contains major spoilers for Ciconia no Naku Koro ni. Read with caution.
|First Appearance||Phase 1: For You, the Replaceable Ones|
Miyao Mitake (御岳都雄 Mitake Miyao?) is a young Gauntlet Knight from AOU Japan and the protagonist of Ciconia no Naku Koro ni. He is the Second Lieutenant of the 0017th Aerial Augmented Infantry Squad "Warcat".
When he was very young, Miyao's father put him through Parallel Processor training. He quickly demonstrated a natural talent for Parallel Processing, however he also developed a split personality. Miyao has especially high compatibility with the Gauntlet and holds the current world record for highest P3 level measurements. His overwhelming score far surpassed second place. Current Gauntlet engineering is unable to make use of most of his P3 potential, so he's currently in a state where his talent has outstripped technology.
Because of his unique level of ability, the AOU Next Generation Genetic Research Center and the AOU Joint Parliament have budgeted $100,000,000 towards his genetic analysis.
Miyao appears as a young boy with cropped auburn hair. He wears a long white and purple jacket with brown suspenders and a red cravat.
Miyao is very prideful, especially in his incredible abilities as a Gauntlet Knight. When he was younger, Miyao had a fear of heights. Due to his position as a Congenital Parallel Processor, Miyao has a split personality named Meow. Meow identifies as a girl and refers to herself as Miyao's little sister. The two have a contentious relationship which is further strained by Meow's romantic interest in Miyao's squadmate Jayden.
For You, the Replaceable Ones
Miyao is plagued by visions of a blue version of himself who predicts various worldwide disasters. The vision repeatedly tells Miyao that his own existence is what prevents the world from achieving peace. Jayden learns of Miyao's second personality and forms a romantic relationship with the Meow personality. Inspired by Toujirou, Miyao creates the Order of the Public Bath, a chivalric order meant to unite the Gauntlet Knights against creating casualties of war. When Miyao is made to fight Lingji Liu before the second worldwide truce, Toujirou commandeers Miyao's Gauntlet and punches Lingji to death.
- Miyao's name is meant to mean "best hero" 「雄」 in the "city" 「都」.
