Mirabelle was a noble in the wealthy Motierre family. She grew bored with the life of luxury, and one day murdered her handmaid by strangling her with a gold chain. Mirabelle was then invited to join the Brotherhood. She later began a relationship with a fellow assassin, Cimbar. In her sleeping area, she has several mannequins, as well as a number of beauty products.
After introducing yourself to Mirabelle, she can give you information on her past, the mechanics of the Dark Brotherhood, and the recent murders of fellow assassins.
Mirabelle, having been working as a serving girl for the Pirate Queen Governor Fortunata ap Dugal, will be found sweeping at the entrance of Anvil Castle. She will recommend poisoning Fortunata's favorite drink decanter as a means of assassinating her.
After informing Fortunata of Commander Marcus Scipio's death, she will invite you to the balcony for a celebratory drink. Mirabelle will then enter serving the drinks:
Governor Fortunata ap Dugal: "I miss sailing the open sea. Things were more clear out there. Kill or be killed. Take whatever you can carry. Fight to keep what's yours.
It's the same here, I suppose. We're just less honest about it."
Mirabelle Motierre: "Your wine, Governor."
Fortunata ap Dugal: "Mirabelle? What are you doing here?"
Mirabelle Motierre: "You know how clumsy Edwina can be, Governor. While she cleans up her mess, I brought your wine so you wouldn't be kept waiting."
Fortunata ap Dugal: "Initiative. I like that in a serving girl.
Very well, then. A toast! To taking what you can and fighting to keep what's yours.
The wine... what did you do?"
Mirabelle Motierre: "We'll drink to your memory, Governor. And to the glory of the Night Mother."
Fortunata ap Dugal: "Mirabelle? She's one of... you?"
Mirabelle Motierre: "Life is fleeting, Fortunata. An illusion. And in the end, everything belongs to Sithis. Tell him I said hello."
Fortunata ap Dugal: <Falls off the ledge to her death>
Mirabelle Motierre: "I'll see you back at the Sanctuary, darling. After I clean up any evidence of our involvement."
Mirabelle will remain on the balcony for other matters. She will tell you of her secret escape route used to exit the castle.
Mirabelle will be set on going to the Enclave of the Hourglass to get revenge on The Black Dragon for Cimbar's death. She will refuse to stay in the sanctuary, whatever you tell her and what Astara Caerellius orders, she will leave the sanctuary regardless.
After speaking to Count Carolus Aquilarios, Mirabelle will arrive at the west entrance to the Enclave, yelling "Assassin, over here!". Speaking to her reveals her plan to use the element of surprise to assassinate the Black Dragon, and later goes into the fort.
After reading The Black Dragon's Journal, Mirabelle Motierre will appear in the room, resulting in the following conversation:
Mirabelle Motierre: "Psst! Assassin! Up here! I'm waiting for the Black Dragon."
Lyra: "Setting a trap for the Dragon? Is that the idea?"
Mirabelle: "Wait, who's that with you?"
Lyra will then teleport in a cloud of red mist, don her armor as the Black Dragon, and murder Mirabelle with her dagger, revealing her true identity:
Lyra/The Black Dragon: "I am death, you silly fool!"
"We'll meet again, assassin. And next time I'll be ready to deal with you!"
Mirabelle: "Don't mourn for me, Assassin. I've always dreamed of the Void.
I'll see Cimbar and the Dread Father soon... but you need to warn Astara... the Black Dragon is..."
As The Black Dragon, Lyra will leave the chambers, and Mirabelle will die of her wounds shortly after saying her last words.

"So you're the new initiate. Hmm. You're certainly cuter than the last one."
The Matron suggested I introduce myself. "And why wouldn't she, darling? I am her favorite, after all. As a matter of fact, I'm everyone's favorite. I'm sure you'll agree soon enough. Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet you. May the Night Mother forever hold you in her cold and loving embrace."
- She is voiced by Tara Strong.
- Her family name implies she is an ancestor of Amaund Motierre (Skyrim) and Francois Motierre (Oblivion) which is further given credence by their dealings with the Dark Brotherhood.
- It is possible that she is related to Lisien Motierre who (like Francois) resides in Chorrol.
