Michi (美智) is one of the four hackers that are the main antagonists in the .hack//Legend of the Twilight anime.
Michi's PC appears as a small, purple-haired girl with an innocent-looking face, but dressed in a skimpy, gothic-style dark outfit. She has a wave symbol on her forehead.
Unlike her companions, Michi is very quiet. She generally just goes along with what ever the others want to do. However she is also the only one out of the four hackers who is close to the AI Morti. As the only girl, she is frequently called on to act as a distraction, using her cute appearance to throw others off guard while her friends move in for the kill.
In the real world Michi is a preteen girl. After a friend of hers suddenly died, she became fascinated with the concept of death, and began using her knowledge of computers to try and explore death. She joined up with the other hackers because she needed their help, but they were unaware of her true intentions.
