She is the Super High School Level Archer (超高校級の「射手」chō kōkō-kyū no “ite”) that both exceeds in archery championship and in archer hunting. She is the sole heiress of the Amatsuki Family, the one who prevails among others.
Yumiya is one of the most common (well, the author doesn't know if it is) first names that often poops out in Japan, but have you ever heard about Amatsuki Yumiya? Yes, she is a very fortunate and blessed soul for being born to Amatsuki Family, one of the richest family residing in Japan, and her father is included in the newest record of Top 100 Most Richest People in the World. She never taste the feel of being poor or helpless, and all what she wanted can be granted in the speed of light—a truly matching analogy to the unbelievable strength in both wealth and influence of the Amatsuki Family, thus, their wealth shaped her like a true princess living in a fairy tale castle. This is not an exaggeration, as her father built their mansion on the top of a personal owned hill in Japan, turning it into a real life castle. Her father's intention to pamper her own daughter is to tell her that this is how he survive his cruel world, by claiming the top place for himself, exterminated his rival, and to stand above everyone else... In the end, her father's wish came true, as he raised a monster from when she can't walk, to be the person that we all know now.
Amatsuki became very ambitious and she wanted to pay back all her father by become the number one person in every aspect of her life. She studied business diligently more than anyone else, focusing to her dream to make her father proud by mastering all kinds of school's subject, practicing her leadership as the "crowned princess", and eventually honing her secret talent as an archer. A super talented human indeed, like father like daughter, the two of them are dubbed as "Duo Monsters", most known for destroying all of their rival families with their combined talent.
However, when she was scouted by Heavenly Born Academy, the academy chose her as the Super High School Level Archer, which she immediately declined. However, her father knows her best that she wanted to be a professional archer some day, as well as her successful heiress, so he gave her an approval to take the academy's request. That's how Amatsuki ended up being the Super High School Level Archer... Truly one of a kind.

Not only that, she is also very selfish and states that she could reach the top without anyone's help.
