A year before the start of the series, Amane Misa's family was murdered in an attempted robbery in their home. She was home at the time, and it happened right before her eyes. After the murderer was arrested, she had a desire for revenge and make him pay for killing her parents. However, the trial went on for a long time, and opinions started to surface, stating that he was falsely accused. He was later killed by Kira, which caused Misa to become a Kira supporter.
Later, shortly after beginning her modeling career, one night, Misa met an obsessed stalker, who was carrying a knife with him. He confessed his feelings to her, but she rejected him, which made him conclude that 'if he can't have her, no one can', and then he attacked her, attempting to kill her. A Shinigami, named Gelus, had been watching Misa from the Shinigami realm for a while and fallen in love with her. Seeing that Misa was going to be killed, Gelus wrote the name of her stalker down, killing him, and ultimately, saving Misa.
Unfortunately, since Shinigami are meant to take life, not save it, Gelus himself died, turning to dust, and leaving behind only his Death Note. Another Shinigami, Rem, witnessed this and decided that the notebook left behind should belong to Misa, and delivered it to her, thinking that Gelus wanted Misa to have it. After Misa received the Death Note, Rem was obligated to stay with her (as Ryuk is with Light). Wanting to meet and thank Kira for avenging her parents, Misa made the eye deal with Rem.
Misa is very outgoing, and a model, actress and singer. She is shown to be quite popular, and attracts a large crowd around her while visiting Light near his school. While she often appears hyperactive and impulsive, she is also shown to be intelligent, specifically when she creates her plan to trick Higuchi into revealing himself to be a Kira, and successfully carries her plan out.
Although she is generally nice to those she meets, she can also be quite cruel, as seen when she tells Light that she would "probably kill" any of the girls he dates, despite Light's dating them being part of his plan to appear as a normal young man to the investigators.
Despite her typically cheerful personality, Misa has been mentally afflicted by seeing her parent's murdered right before her eyes. It is unclear how much her trauma has affected Misa psychologically, but in the films, Rem indicates that Misa went through a deep depression immediately after she discovered the murderer was acquitted of the crime. The murderer was later killed by Kira, an act that Misa has been grateful for ever since. Misa's appreciation to Kira is what initially fuels her actions as the Second Kira. Later, after she becomes emotionally attached to Light, her actions are strongly motivated by love.
Light Yagami is an important figure in Misa's life, and she frequently comments on him being so. She often declares her love for him. She is quite dedicated to Light, and even refuses to perform a kiss with fellow actor, Hideki Ryuga, while making a film because she is dating Light. After losing her memories of the Death Note for the first time, she even decides to help catch Kira for Light (who has joined the Task Force, and also has no memories of the Death Note and ever being Kira). Misa usually refers to herself in the third person by calling herself "Misa-Misa".
