Mida has brown hair tied up in a ponytail and brown eyes. She has a beauty mark to the bottom left side of her face, and red lipstick. She wears a tight black suit jacket with a red bra slightly showing. She also wears a tight, short, scarlet skirt, black thigh-length stockings with a black garter belt attached, and red heels.
YandereDev states that she may be the tallest rival.
"Mida is a substitute teacher who absolutely loves her job; there is nothing that she enjoys more than having dozens of eyes all directed towards her...especially if those eyes belong to teenage boys.
Mida will appear at school in the seventh week of gameplay in order to fill in for an unavailable teacher. She will quickly begin hunting for new "prey", and Senpai will catch her attention.
Her hobby is seducing schoolboys, and so far, no man has ever been able to resist her charms. If she decides that she wants someone, they have no hope of escape. Senpai won't be able to escape her clutches unless someone takes drastic measures..."
Though it is unknown at the moment, YandereDev has said that her routine will put her in close proximity to Senpai or other students.It is presumed it will be the same as a regular teacher. In the future, she can be called upon by Teacher's Pets if they witness a murder.
