Miaya's title during her time in Hope's Peak Academy was the Ultimate Therapist. Although never shown or stated in the series, the fact that she was one of the creator of the Neo World Program proved that her Ultimate title is not only for show.
Prior to the Tragedy
Miaya was a student at Hope's Peak Academy, recruited as the Ultimate Therapist. It is unknown which class she belonged to and whether or not she had graduated before the events of the Tragedy.
She is one of the creators of the Neo World Program alongside Chihiro and Yasuke.
At some point in time after getting recruited by Koichi Kizakura for the Future Foundation, she became the head of the 7th Division. Her responsibility as the 7th Division leader is to oversee cyber security, as well as research new ways to combat Despair.
When Makoto Naegi was suspected for protecting the Remnants of Despair, Miaya was supposed to be one of the twelve executives to attend Makoto's trial. However, she was secretly murdered by Monaca some time before the Final Killing Game, and Monaca created a robotic puppet to take Miaya's place in the game without anyone noticing.
Miaya made a cameo appearance in Nagito's imagination world, was shown greeting a parent and her children along with a Princess Piggles mascot.
