Miranda Ohala (born 1977) is a major character in both Clockwork and The IT Files. Originally a police officer, Miranda later joined Interpol and the International Temporal Enforcement Agency after that. Miranda's specialty is undercover work, and she second-in-command of Team Gamma, its leader being her girlfriend Hui Lan.
Miranda was born in the big island of Hawaii and later moved to Oahu at an early age. She is the daughter of a resort manager and a master chef. The youngest in family of six, Miranda was often spoiled by her parents and picked on by her five older brothers. Through grade and high school she was often seen as the neighborhood bully, being a tough girl who liked to play rough. Her misadventures as a bully earned her spot in an all-girl boarding school during her last year in high school, where she would discover her sexuality.
After high school, having barely graduated, Miranda found herself following in her parents' family footsteps working in Hawaii's many resorts as waitress and sometimes as a maintance worker. It wasn't until she tried her hand at resort security that she found she had an interest in law enforcement. However to become a police in Hawaii she needed an AA degree, so working her security job during the nights Miranda put herself through community college, which she barely passed and even seemingly only by sheer will.
Miranda finally reached her goal: after years of long nights and hard work she finally became a police officer. Miranda was street cop working Honolulu's non-tourist neighborhoods. It was a job and beat that she truly enjoyed. It was only a year befoe she was recruited on her natrual good-looks and un-police-like image to the elite vice and narcotic units. Miranda often worked undercover, sometimes going under for months at a time. She took down mostly pimps and drug dealers, soon becoming respected by her peers and becoming known as one of the best on the force.
After working for nearly five years without a vacation Miranda's superiors finally forced her to take one. It was during this vacation period she was enjoying herself in a spa and caught the eye of Erika Stone, who was on a kidnapping and theft spree at the time. Miranda was promptly kidnapped and soon joined a captured Interpol team at Erika's penthouse in Malibu. There she met and became extremely attracted to Hui Lan.
When the whole ordeal ended, under the high recomendation of Lucienne Christophe Miranda ended up in Interpol. She was glad for it as it gave her a chance to be close to her new crush Hui, who was at the time uninterested in her advances. Most importantly it gave Miranda a chance to get out of Hawaii. While serving in Interpol Miranda was assigned to a task force along with her friend Hui under Aisha Reynolds. The task force helped take down a prostitution operation in Russia before being dispanded. The pair then worked with Lucienne and Aisha as well as other old friends to stop a team led by Scott Dawson from kidnapping super-models. At the end of incident her partner and friend Hui finally took her advances seriously and the two offically hooked up.
The next operation that the new lovers found themselves in also found them both incapacitiated for the majority of it being both victims of the Time-Stopper. The incident was caused by the Paradise Foundation, who'd just used Erika Stone to kidnap two princesses. Fortunately soon after the raid on Paradise Manor Miranda and Hui were both restored and returned to duty.
When the International Temporal Enforcement Agency was formed Miranda followed her lover Hui, who was made Director of the tactical wing of the agency. Miranda was her partner in Team Gamma and she also worked under Sophia Katsopolis, who was head of the espionage section. In one of her early missions with IT, Miranda found herself with Hui at a tropical resort called the Fortune Sea Resort. Hui and she successfully took down the Fortune Finders, who were looking to take everyone hostage. Later during Ashley Tisdale's return she worked with Hui to investigate Erika Stone when initially there was no explanation for the attack on ITEA agents. Later Miranda and the rest of Gamma were assigned to a joint operation with Interpol in Hong Kong were they were hunting Tamaya Qillaq. Miranda felt a great deal of stress during the operation as Hui was kidnapped intentionally but in an unknown amount of danger, though she managed to pull through and save her girlfriend from Tamaya. When raiding Ouroboros headquarters in New York Miranda showed great skill with the H&K 69 grenade launcher and was at the front of the conflict.
A month after the fall of Ouroboros Team Gamma was assigned to capture Tamaya Qillaq in Prague after she personally taunted Hui via email, having captured a pair of GRID agents and a Europol officer. Miranda stuck with her girlfriend but was taken out of the fight with Tamaya, though the team did ultimately triumph. During a prisoner exchange with Europol Kioni Abasi ambushed the group but Miranda managed to avoid being frozen and used Hui's massage technique to get answers from the member of Team Zeta. Finding out what Kioni's plan was Miranda unfroze Hui and convinced her they should take charge of Tamaya, which they did with Kioni's help.
