Mikoto was created by Garland as the 'back up', should her brothers fail their mission of destroying Gaia.
Mikoto has a small niche in the fandom, due to essentially being a genderbent Zidane. She can therefore 'fill in' whenever fic requires Zidane's looks, but not his gender.
Mikoto's aforementioned niche can see her shipped with any of the male main characters - Zidane included - but avoiding Slash fic.
Some may consider this homophobic, however the inverse is also perfectly viable, with Mikoto/Garnet femslash ships existing for near identical reasons.
Mikoto's ambiguous age does deter some shippers, however. Her older brothers Zidane is 16, which guarantees her to be underage in canon.
