—Shinigami's introduces herself to the Ninja Turtles and April O'Neil, City at War

Shinigami is an ally of the Ninja Turtles. As a childhood friend of Karai from Tokyo, Japan, she was trained into the ways of Ninjutsu as a Kunoichi and mystical witch. Years later in New York City, after The Shredder fled the city with his henchmen, Karai recruits her old friend to her own Foot Clan as her second-in-command. As the two of them fight alongside each other, they rebel against The Shredder and his Foot Clan in order to for Karai to restore its honor. She wields a Kusarigama, Crescent Blades, Hypno Stone, and Claw Gloves as her signature weapon in combat. She is the love interest of Michelangelo. She formerly had a rivalry with April O'Neil. Shinigami debuts in City at War.


She was born years ago in Tokyo, Japan and was named Shinigami by her family. When he was much more older, she met Karai while she was being raised by The Shredder in The Foot Clan. At some point she started to train into the ways of Ninjutsu to become a Kunoichi and mystical witch. During her training, she was given the Kusarigama alongside with the Hypno Stone as her signature weapon of choice. The Hypno Stone, was a gem that was an ancient relic of her family that has been passed down from generations. Once she was much more older and mature, she was recruited by her old friend to New York City, so that she could become the second-in-command of her Foot Clan.
