Misty was a mysterious girl who dwelt with her pet cat in the Cavern of Dreams. Said cavern contained an apparently mystical pool which Misty used to spy on the lives of girls with unusual, often supernatural problems, so she could narrate these poor girls' lives to her readers in detail. And they say phone hacking is an invasion of privacy!?!
The artist who created Misty was Shirley Bellwood, who based Misty's appearance on that of herself as a young woman. She also gave Misty a cat who was identical to her own cat, Habibi (Arabic for 'my beloved'). Cats are like that. They don't care how many owners they have as long as all of them provide food, and they have a habit of slinking about and ending up in unlikely locations.

Misty was the host of the comic called Misty.
The comic Misty and its host (who was named after the comic) were given their name by Pat Mills, who took it from the Clint Eastwood film Play Misty for Me. According to him, "It was a good name for the comic because it wasn't too full-on... It was suggestive of mystery rather than horror, so parents wouldn't freak out and stop their kids buying it." (2000 AD prog 2011, published January 2017.)
