Mito, or Kouhai Mitsuko is Satou's childhood friend as well as his Junior at work. Prior to the beginning of the story she was summoned to the past of parallel world as a hero. She will later be known as Ancient King Yamato who founded Shiga Kingdom and at some point defeated Golden Wild Boar King. Despite offered a chance to return to Japan she chose to stay in parallel world due to an oracle which revealed that she won't be able to meet with Satou if she was to return to her own world.
Due to this reason Mito had decided to enter cold sleep like state in a ruin in Zettsu Earldom.
She used to be a shrine maiden of the shrine of Ame no Mizuhana-hime 6 Intermission 4
Originally, she used to be a terrible hero, to the point where the saga empire confiscated her gear and then demoted her to pack horse due to her storage skill. But when her transport got captured by orcs, she was imprisoned but she managed to use her [Friendship] skill to work her way to the top to almost being able to convince the Golden Wild Boar King. But before that happened, he went mad and was forced to stop him with the help of Ten-chan. Afterwards she disavowed the saga empire and found her own kingdom, the Shiga Kingdom.
Mito has black hair and a rather flat chest. She's self-proclaimed to be eternally 20 years old which might have something to do with the reason she was sleeping in a ruin. It is implied that she has used rejuvenation potions, therefore appearing younger than her actual age (even when disregarding her cold sleep period).
Mito becomes acquainted with John Smith after he discovered her lying asleep in a ruin in Zettsu Earldom. She becomes acquainted with Zena's squad through him when she helps them by single-handedly repulsing--or rather taming--the dragon that they and a Shiga Eight Sword couldn't fight off.
Mito specializes primarily in magic-based attacks using wand/canes, but she can and does use holy swords as well.

- "The dragons wouldn't let me ride on them since they were afraid of Ichirou-nii, so I asked the Griffon who was playing in the mountain foot to let me ride on it."
