Miyabi Aizawa (相沢 雅 Aizawa Miyabi) is the main antagonist, and althrough not active, a troubled heroine of GTO. She is a student of the Holy Forest Academy and attends class 3-4. A model student and leader of 3-4 in early aspects, she was in fact the orchestrator of teacher bullying of her fellow students. And found herself in more constant crash with tough Eikichi Onizuka. Birthday is November 1st, 1985.
Aizawa is a kind and friendly girl in her tender years, who began not to trust teachers anymore when someone dear to her got involved in a scandal due to an affair of their former instructor. From this, she and her cohorts began their quest of kicking out any teacher who will be assigned to their class. They were successful in making these teachers resign, except for Eikichi Onizuka.
Miyabi is the only one who keeps to hate Onizuka until the very end, obsessed by having him get fired, she will often go over the limits to reach her goal.
She will be the one to kick out Tomoko Nomura from her group, after the girl's clumsy mistake in one of the plans against Onizuka.
While apparently very diligent at home, Aizawa is full of rage and can be merciless towards anyone that is between her revenge on instructors, using any way to reach her purposes. Despite Tomoko's loss on the contest, Aizawa became very saddened after hearing of Tomoko's hard feelings during the acting contest.
In the anime her revenge on instructors is revealed on Episode 42 when Miyuki Yokoyama (Aizawa's late best friend) commits suicide after Miyuki reveals to Aizawa that Miyuki is pregnant with Mr. Saito (Miyuki's former homeroom teacher), who abandons her in which she visited his apartment upon discovering that he continues teaching. She even attempting to stab one of the Board Members of Education with a small knife used to stab Mr. Saito only to be stopped by Onizuka due to her mistrust towards grown ups. Her personal convictions are shattered, when she was accused of attempting to murder the aforementioned teacher, as well as assaulting a member of the Japanese Board of Education (who she sees as taking only the teacher's side). She is shocked when Onizuka takes the fall for her, by announcing he committed all of the crimes she was accused of. Arriving in time to see Onizuka being led away in handcuffs, Miyabi finally asks Onizuka to forgive her for everything she had done. One would assume that this event has restored in Miyabi the capacity to trust in adults again.
In the manga, Miyabi had a crush on their former, homeroom teacher, Ōgi, and started to believe that her feelings may be reciprocated, when he invites her to dinner. However, Ōgi already had a fiancé, whom he wanted to introduce to Miyabi. Crushed, she takes illicit photographs of herself (knowing that his hobby was photography) and tells the class that he took advantage of her. Things go out of hand when classmate Takumi Ishida takes matters into his own hands and assaults Ōgi. Distraught over the events (Ōgi and Takumi were fired and expelled, respectively), Miyabi decides to turn the class against all teachers, thus beginning class 2-4's rebellion.
Miyabi's guilt, as well as her deteriorating family situation, makes her colder and distant to friends and classmates, leading to the events in the carnival and her rivalry with Urumi, mentally breaking her down. Her guilt is further compounded when she discovers just how much her friends still care for her. Things take a turn for the worse when she returns to her already broken family, forcing Onizuka to intervene, which results in him and a few students holding Miyabi "hostage", on the condition that her father demonstrates his love for her. The plot works, but this doesn't please Misuzu Daimon and her Angels, who then expose Miyabi's secret, forcing her to attempt a suicide from the school roof, but before that happens, Takumi, who had flown in from Okinawa, appears on the roof, to try to convincing her not to jump, despite the guilt she feels for all she's done. However, Onizuka accidentally bumps her off the ledge. Miyabi, not willing to end her life, after having settled her guilt, calls out to him, who leaps after her, landing on Uchiyamada's Cresta.
After Onizuka help all her problems, she began to warmup to him and wanted to apologize for all the trouble she cause. She along with Azusa were first to know about Onizuka's cerebral aneurysm.
