Miarka is a Gypsy girl who encountered Captain Haddock and Tintin while they were walking through the countryside.


She was part of a Roma community camping in a nearby landfill area. When Irma's gold scissors go missing, they are found by the police in Miarka's possession. Miarka tells them she found them under a tall tree, which would lead Tintin to solve the mystery of the thieving magpie.
