Miriam Bancroft is the wife of Laurens Bancroft. Like her husband, she also loves being naked. She is one of the wealthy, near-immortal "Meths." When her husband was killed and re-uploaded from his back-up into his new clone sleeve without memory of the last forty-eight hours, he contracted Takeshi Kovacs to solve what he believed was his murder. Miriam was a suspect in the crime as she was one of only two people (the other being her husband) that had access to the safe that contained the murder weapon, but was not the killer because she was out of the house at the time of his death having an affair with another meth.
Throughout the series Edit
Miriam is a well spoken, confident and elegant woman. She has learned how to perfectly interact within her prestigious social circles over the course of her many years as a Meth. Throughout the first season we learn that she knows exactly what she wants -and happily takes any route available to get it. While she is a very smart person she does sometimes play the part of the innocent house wife, specifically to Laurens Bancroft. She's very forward with her intentions, most memorably her advances on Takeshi Kovacs.
Have you heard of Empathin?
Merge9 on the street.
That is if you can even get it.
It's a biochemical pheromone.
Puts bodies in touch with one other.
This sleeve is state-of-the-art biochemtech from Nakamura Labs.
I secrete Merge9 when I'm aroused.
It's in my saliva...
in my sweat...
in my cunt.
Don't fight it.
Everything you feel... I feel.
And everything I feel, you feel.
