Mia Romanov was a circus worker who went from a clown to working the silk act in 1971.

History[]

After her parents died, Mia was adopted by Sheldon Burgess, who was her godfather. She and Sheldon planned an aerial act for the circus, drawing the ire of knife-thrower and circus star Zelda. Eventually, Mia became the circus' headliner, as her act was extremely successful. Sheldon suggested she leave the circus, as the Ringling Brothers wanted her under their name. This would never come to be, however, as Mia figured out Biggie and Lester's scam: they would overbook tickets acting as charities. When Mia threatened to expose Biggie, Lester strangled her to death and shoved her in the silk sheet to make it look as if she died in an accident.

Her murder would be solved in 2010.
