Misha Auburn was House Steiner's family historian, like her father before her, and a close friend of Melissa Steiner since their childhood.


The eldest of Thelos Auburn's eight daughters, Misha was the only one to show any interest in history or politics, with her father training her in the discipline of historical research to succeed him as Court Historian of the Steiner family. Her father's position in the Lyran court gave her the unique advantage of growing up as Melissa Steiner's best friend. Unfortunately while her father maintained his factual objectivity despite his political loyalty to House Steiner, outside observers such as Anastasius Focht and Wolfnet view Misha's carrier as been one of unprofessional adoration or outright propaganda for her best friend. Her books, including titles such as Twenty Years of Progress, The Triumph of Right, Freedom’s Bloody Price and her eight-volume epic, The Inevitability of Enlightenment, are full of half-truths, speculations, blithe generalities and irrelevant personal digressions; all of them intended to persuade the reader of the 'obvious' virtues and integrity of the Federated Commonwealth's rulers.[1] [2]

She met Andrew Redburn while he was visiting Tharkad in 3027. In 3030, Redburn and Misha married, and they had four children together.[1] At the time of Redburn's death, the couple had nine grandchildren.[3] One of their eventual descendants would be Damien Redburn, an Exarch of the Republic of the Sphere.[citation needed]
