Mikoto Kiba was born into a family of a criminal syndicate, but they lived by the mantra of absolute rule over women. Her own father and grandfather cared little for her, but she was especially close with her step-brother, Yuki Kiba. He was older than her, and swore that he'd end the rules against girls. Mikoto followed her brother everywhere. This even led to their love of motorbike racing.
When Mikoto crashed in a race, Yuki had to swerve to avoid hitting her but ran into a concrete wall. Mikoto's father and grandfather rushed all the doctors they could to tend to Yuki, as she was left behind. Though Mikoto's heart had stopped in the ambulance, she was saved by Masamune Mochizuki, the only doctor not caught up in tending to Yuki. When Yuki passed away, her father ended his own life, and her grandfather lost his mind at losing the bother of them. In her family's weakened state, the Kabuto Syndicate waged a war for the land holdings and wealth. Mikoto felt helpless to stop what she was sure her brother could of prevented.
