Miser is part of a mysterious and secretive organization of thieves that travels the world. Many of her personal details remain a mystery, even her real name as she is always referred to simply as "Miser." As a thief, she attacks from the shadows and deprives her victims of their goods. Miser's favorite place to stay is dark places.
She is referred to as "Number Five" within her organization and views her colleague Greed as a rival. Her group opposes Yoshimitsu's Manjitou. She is quickly defeated by Mitsurugi prior to the events of Soul Calibur IV when she tries to rob him of his fragment of Soul Edge.
