|First Appearance||Vol.2 Chapter 2|
Yeo Miseng (여미생, Yeo Misaeng; or "Yuh Meesaeng") is a Regular currently inside the Hell Express en route to the 43rd Floor. She climbs the Tower in search of her parents. Yeo Goseng and Miseng come from the same family and are of the same generation level. This is because they share the same surname "Yeo"(여) and they share the same generation name "Seng"(생): 미생(MiSeng) and 고생(GoSeng). They are probably cousins.
SIU has confirmed they're not sisters, insinuating they're most likely from the same family and know each other very well (again, they are probably cousins).
Appearance and Personality
She looks like a young teenage girl. She wears what looks like a typical schoolgirl uniform with a shirt, tie, sweater and skirt. She also carries around a pink backpack and a cellphone with her. After the time skip, she has grown up some, with the same hairstyle and clothing type, but with a more developed body.
She is caring for others, but easily shaken. She shares her food with other Regulars and even gives Jyu Viole Grace a chocolate bar (translated as "chips" in The Company's scanlation), even when she was well aware that he could easily kill her. She is able to sense other people's loneliness and suffering and realised that Jyu Viole Grace was simply trying to keep others at a distance, to protect his feelings, when he declared "That is why none of you can become my teammate. I am your enemy". Initially, she was also quite naïve and rather trusting of people, given that she clung to a woman who'd bought her a yoghurt.
She appeared on the 20th Floor after Horyang's appearance. Miseng also didn't do much until Goseng appeared and she yelled out "Unni!". When Ja Wangnan started yelling at the other Regulars, she said that the test was only going to last 30 minutes so they could all go up together. But Wangnan rebuked her, saying that she didn't understand anything and she was probably ditched by her friends like trash, which made her cry. At this point, Hon Akraptor came in and decided a vote-off, in which he chose Miseng. Ja Wangnan rebuffed him for choosing Miseng and instead chose him. Viole interrupted and said he would drop everyone and a fight broke out. Miseng and Goseng cowered in a corner while everyone else fought. Afterwards, the test ended.
While waiting for the other Regulars and the next test, Miseng gave everyone, except Akraptor, a chocolate bar. The next test, which was a Shinsoo Strengthening Test, began and Miseng managed to come in 11th before Horyang hit the machine. She was later seen crying in the corner, thinking she failed the test. When it was announced that Viole would be picking the remaining seven members, she was one of the people who pleaded to be chosen. She ran up to Viole and hugged him around his waist, crying that she wanted to see her mother and father. Viole awkwardly lifted his hands away, as if he was unsure how to handle the situation, though he did nothing to stop her or push her away.
During the rest period, she became acquainted with the yoghurt woman and was scolded by Akraptor for being too trusting. Later on, she seemed to be able to get along better with Akraptor while playing cards, which Miseng had talent with.
In the Trustworthy Room Test, Yeongsuk tried to take advantage of her and steal her room, but Miseng refused to open the door. Akraptor came to her rescue and played a word game with her to keep her occupied. Later on she helped her team by guarding a room. After the test she was seen celebrating with the other Regulars.Prince. She sat with Wangnan and Goseng to greet the FUG members that Viole brought home and fell asleep once Ha Jinsung began to brag about Viole's skills. Urek Mazino and Viole were in the middle of a fight. Viole, realizing that she was going to be hurt by their attacks, shielded her with his body and was severely wounded as a result. Urek was impressed by Viole's bravery and left them an extra flower.
After they passed the test, Miseng was often seen sitting by Viole's bedside.Team Tangsooyook took the test on the 28th Floor. Miseng worked with her team to trick the opposing team by acting as bait.
After the test, she and Prince were sleeping in the room they were playing in while Horyang told the team his history. Afterwards, she wanted to wear pink when meeting Cassano but her idea was rejected. Later on, she expressed her concern regarding Horyang to Viole, and it was probably this that convinced Viole that Horyang had to be brought back.
The next day, she woke up and joined the rest of the team to explain the situation to Koon. She accompanied them to Koon's private bunker and saw what FUG had done. She was also there when Wangnan and Koon agreed to make an alliance. In the following months, she sorely missed Horyang and Viole, though she tried to hide it. Though she had been training with the rest of the team, she wasn't feeling confident. Whether it was deliberate or not, Prince comforted her when she was on the verge of crying. The night before the test she stayed up late with Prince for additional training. Though she went into the test extremely tired, they all passed.
She is captured with Prince by Verdi, because she thought they seemed cute and decide to make them marry. Verdi then decorated them with flowers for the wedding. She was finally sent up to the Archimedes with Prince.
She was chosen for the first round of the Plug event, appearing in a state of fury with a blood-covered plug. She eliminated four Regulars, due to Verdi's flower that she had put on, which enhanced her abilities, but was stopped by Prince and Akraptor. She failed to go to the next round.
At the after party, she and Prince (dressed up in disguise) act as little cupids and drag a surprised Horyang to a date with Goseng.
She was seen happily reuniting with the rest of her team, aboard the Wolhaiksong suspendiship.
Later on, she can be seen peeking into Viole's room where he was sleeping with Koon and Rak.
She can be seen with the rest of Team Tangsooyook, saying goodbye to Leesoo's team.
Along with Prince and Akraptor, she appeared on the Entrance floor of Train City while Beta, Aka and Moontari were combating Mirotic. After briefly viewing the situation, she took out her Observer and used it to locate and discern the semi-illusory guardian's weak points. She then informed her teammates and allies, allowing them to take down the Mirotic guardian.
Afterwards, she travelled with everyone until they caught up with Viole and Boro. After a brief reunion with Viole and Daniel's revelation to Aka and Boro, Daniel destroyed the stairs preventing them all from following him. Miseng eventually reached the platform with everyone else, just as the Train was leaving. She then left with everyone to go to the stadium and sort everything out.
A month after the Train City incident, during a team meeting after the question was put up with how to contact Wangnan and Yihwa she suggested using Emile but the idea was deemed too risky. When the meeting ended, she and the others went to eat (with Rak suggesting eating a meal she didn't like). When Viole suddenly collapsed, she and Rak worriedly tried to help him.
After completing the 36th Floor test and Viole collapsing again, they were visited by Ha Jinsung who told them all to give up on chasing the Hell Express because the person who was on there was too powerful for them. As he escorted them to the 36th Floor middle area, they managed to trick him and escape via Koon's genius planning.
Having been imprisoned for a month Prince was raging and Miseng was fruitfully trying to calm him down.
Powers and Abilities
It is yet to be revealed what powers she has but she is at least capable, seeing as how she was able to reach the 20th Floor. During the Flower Test on the 21st Floor we see her putting an Observer on the baby Zygaena carrying the flower, showing she is at least able to perform her duties as a Scout relatively well. After the timeskip, she has developed her abilities as a Scout and was able to locate and discern the Mirotic guardian's weak points using her Observer.
When they were playing a card game, it was revealed she's quite a good strategist and basically dominated the game after she joined it. However, it remains to be seen how she'd perform during a test.
Observer Control: Miseng possesses the ability to project a holographic decoy of herself using an Observer. This allows her to lure enemies into a trap, taking advantage of her appearance as an easy target. Later on, at Train City, she used her new Observer to analyse and determine there was a device that controlled the Mirotic guardian's semi-illusory state hidden in a nearby door.
Potential Power Control: After the Workshop Battle she studied on how to increase her potential power at once without losing control. After asking Verdi for some help, she gained knowledge of a special seed that allowed her to do so. Thus, after constant training for a year, she became able to use her potential power without losing control. It is still a little unstable, however.
Yeo Goseng: Miseng is very trusting in Goseng and listens to her a lot. In The Trustworthy Room, she opened the door only to Goseng.
Hon Akraptor: At the beginning she seemed to be fearful of Akraptor and this was probably the reason she did not share a chocolate bar with him during the time when everyone was waiting for next test. However, this changed when they both played the game of words and she began to respect and feel more secure around Akraptor, who treats her as if she were his daughter.
Jyu Viole Grace: Although at first all the companions were afraid for Viole, Miseng could sense that Viole was very lonely and gave him a chocolate bar. They get along very well, with Viole even risking his life for her during his fight against Urek Mazino.
Prince: They both have the same mental maturity and both are seen playing video games. We have seen that Prince wants to protect her, considering her as a sister.
Notes and Trivia
- She doesn't give Akraptor a chocolate bar. The reason for that is yet unknown. It could be because he tried to vote her off earlier.
- In terms of her ability to strengthen herself using Shinsoo, she is below Ja Wangnan and just above Yeo Goseng.
- She doesn't seem to have any pupils and her eyes are one solid colour.
- Considering her impressive strategic abilities (shown during the card game they played during the Trustworthy Room) it remains to be seen if her personality (the innocence, the crying, etc.) is really child-like or if it's an act to manipulate others or both.
- She enjoys taking photos with her handphone. She took a photo of Love when he appeared and was ready to take a photo of Wangnan when he tried to take off his pants.
- (To Ja Wangnan during the Survival Round test) "I'm sorry for being useless... please don't throw me away. To meet my mom and dad... I have to get to the top of the Tower..."
