Miyako appears to be a very kind girl, albeit shy and somewhat cowardly given her hesitance to fight, especially against other magical girls, compared to her teammates. While she will stand up for herself for something she strongly believes in, she also seems to be a bit naive and easily swayed based on how she was manipulated by Oriko Mikuni into believing she was someone who was honest about her faults and truly understood her while turning on and accusing Lina of using the group and being to blame for Mio and Futaba's deaths. When she dies her final thoughts were that she only wanted to be a heroine.
Miyako's backstory prior to joining Lina's team is unknown.
During Sadness Prayer
Miyako first appears fighting against Sasa Yuuki with her teammates, though they are forced to flee when Sasa tricks them with a fake soul gem and calls for help from random bystanders mistaking them for muggers. Later she appears again with her team when they discover Mio's body. When Lina initially takes the blame for Mio's death, Miyako is quick to say otherwise. They are later confronted by a policewoman in Mitakihara where they learn about the recent murders of two girls before meeting up at their hotel room to hunt for Sasa. Miyako is the first to look further into the killings and speculates a Witch might have done it but Lina notes can't be as it seemed unusual for a Witch to kill someone that way. After learning about the black magical from Kyubey, she tries to convince Lina and Mai that they should return to Kazamino to formulate a new battle plan, but Mai refuses to leave the city at Sasa and her Witches' mercy. Before Miyako can elaborate more on her reasoning, Kirika breaks into their room and begins to fight them with Sasa and Oriko joining in shortly after.
During the surprise attack Miyako ends up facing up against Oriko who just wishes to talk to her rather than fight. When Miyako asks why, Oriko replies that it's because she is the only one who has realized that the battle is meaningless and proceeds to tell the Kazamino girl about her wish to save the world. Eventually the two girls join Sasa, Lina, and Mai who are still fighting. Lina tries to attack Oriko but Miyako gets in the way to protect her. When Lina tells her to move so they can avenge Mio, Miyako confronts Lina about her behavior and how she's had enough of it. She even goes so far as to say that the deaths of Mio and Futaba are Lina's fault, as well as defending Oriko and her actions. Lina then turns into a Witch and kills Miyako. As she dies her final thoughts are that she didn't want any of this to happen and only wanted to be a heroine.
She is not shown to have any unique abilities, though it's shown in a few panels that she has one or two dolls that assist her in battle to an unknown degree.
