Character Biography

Shianndrea (Jetta) is a young Japanese woman born into the Toshigawa ninja clan. In its history, the clan protected Japan from the Knave, an organization bent on bringing evil together to unite the world. At the end of feudalism the Knave was defeated by Yamoto Toshigawa. However, legend foretold that one day a descendant of Yamoto Toshigawa, would be destined to once again defeat the Knave when they rise once again. When the Toshigawa are attacked by the emperor of Japan, Terminus, and the Knave, Jetta realizes the prophesy was meant for her.

Divided now between her loyalty towards her clan and her own desires, Jetta discovers that fighting her own destiny may be harder than answering to it.

Jetta/Shi: Arrow of Destiny

JETTA/SHI: ARROW OF DESTINY

It was Japan in 1582. Oda Nobunaga was a cruel and bloodthirsty warlord. In his efforts to unify Japan, he slaughtered thousands of innocent men, women, and children, even killing the Sohei warrior monks of the Hiei Monastery and killing the head of the Toshigawa clan. The evil Oda Nobunaga was killed by a poisoned arrow at Honno-Ji Temple, shot by Tokoshi Toshigawa. This sacred arrow has been protected through the ages as it holds the key to unlock great evil.
Fast forward to present day Japan. After years of undisturbed peace, an unknown evil threatens Honno-Ji again. Tenkai, a mysterious monk, must call on the help of a descendant of the Sohei (Shi) & the descendant of the Toshigawa (Jetta) to honor an age-old promise to protect the Arrow of Nobunaga.
