She is voiced by Keiko Yamamoto in the main Nekketsu Series and by Laila Berzins in River City Girls.
Misuzu is a senior student at the Taiyō Academy in Tokyo, Japan. Misuzu is respected by her peers because of her strength and large size.

She comes from a wealthy family who often goes to other parts of the world by riding on an airplane for vacation.
