Boss Mida is a tribute character inspired by the Trade Princess Movement. In it, they nominated the entirely fan-made character Mida Silvertongue to be Trade Princess of the Bilgewater Cartel. Her title, "Her Tallness," is a reference to The Tallest from Invader Zim.
According to Engineer Niff, who is working on Mida's shredder, "She don't like movin' around the city on foot like any old chump, ESPECIALLY if she's gotta go deal with the warchief." As Niff reveals, the Shredder behind her is in fact hers.
Boss Mida stands slightly taller than the playable and NPC Goblins, a trait shared by faction leaders and other characters of note. This is probably in reference to her title.
