Mieu is the second playable character introduced by Phantasy Star III and one of the most trusted companions of Rhys, his sons, and grandsons. She is the spiritual successor to Nei - a non-human, shunned by most people but accepted by the blue haired hero. She even uses the same style of weapons and techniques, becoming another agile, fast attacker who also serves as the reliable healer. Just as Mieu takes inspiration from Nei and Myau, she also provides the same to later characters in the series.

Following in the footsteps pioneered by Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom gave each playable character an individual head shot portrait to make them more recognizable to players. This was especially vital for this game, which tended to use the same set of graphics for several characters with slight color changes. Unlike the similar pictures of Nei and friends, however, these portraits were used for speech in important story scenes and the standard character menu. The previous game restricted the portrait availability to Rolf's house, but this one allowed the players to see the characters at any time they were available for play.
