Miyabi(雅緋) is a playable character from the Senran Kagura video game series. She makes her debut in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.
A third-year student at Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy and the leader of its prestigious would-be Elites. Although powerful enough to attain a leadership role during her first year, she was seriously injured during one particular mission, causing her to lose both her memories and her abilities.
She was hospitalized for three years and had been living an empty existence, but a certain event has made everything she lost resurface. She now stands again as part of the Hebijo reconstruction effort, fending off rivals with her seven-pronged sword and her black flame.
Miyabi is a girl of a lightly tanned complexion, though not nearly to the extent of Homura. Her short white hair causes many to claim that she looks like a handsome man, a trait which is even more greatly exemplified by her lack of femininity, much to her chagrin.
Black Wing Mode Edit
In this mode, Miyabi sprouts six wings that are black and white. Her hair becomes black with a a white streak at the front and her eyes become red. There is also a symbol tattooed to her face.
“You think this is all a game, with rules and fairness and happy endings. You have no idea what a shinobi truly is.”
Miyabi is hard working and extremely prideful and confident in her abilities. She always carriers a serious demeanor and very rarely ever genuinely smiles outside of a confident smirk.
Her demeanor is quite manly in relation to her appearance which only further adds to the issue of people hardly seeing her as a girl.
Despite her no-nonsense attitude, Miyabi is also shown to be very caring of those close to her, especially he best friend Imu. She can also be rather kind in her own way when the situation calls for it.
Miyabi came from a family of evil ninja, as did Imu, a childhood friend of hers. When the two were younger, they always dreamed of what it would be like as ninja, going as far as to play a game called "Ninja." However, one day, Imu had an idea; They should play Ninja, but for real.
One fateful night, the two girls would gather their fathers' weapons before sneaking off to the woods, a place where they had been warned not to go several times by their parents. Shortly into their "game," however, the children were attacked by a yōma. Before the beast could attack the girls, Miyabi's mother stepped in, but she, though she was a Shinobi, stood no chance against the Yoma, and had her head brutally crushed by the beast right before her daughter's eyes. This sight would scar young Miyabi for life. As she stood, awaiting death by the hands of the Yoma, her father would then step in and quickly finish the demon.
Apparently, her father was the principal of an Evil Ninja school known as Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy, a school in which Miyabi would enter, and quickly reach the elite level, alongside Imu years later. She and Imu would soon take part in a mission, along with several other ninja and one Kagura. The mission involved combat with a group of Good Shinobi. This battle, however, would be interrupted by Yoma. In a fit of vengeance-triggered rage, Miyabi would use a Forbidden Ninja Art, Blood Riot.This technique involved gathering power from the blood spilled within the Shinobi Barrier, but it provided a significant risk to the user if they lost control. Of course, Miyabi did lose control, and she had no memory of what happened afterwards, except for the fact that she and Imu were the only survivors.
Hanzo Academy Edit
Miyabi, alongside the other Neo-Hebijo girls debut in the third chapter of the Hanzo story. While Imu goes on to fight Katsuragi, Miyabi decides to fight Asuka. Her, along with Ryobi and Ryona fight Asuka in a three-on-one battle. Asuka's complaint that the fight wasn't fair hits a nerve with Miyabi, where she decides to kill Asuka to teach her a lesson, when she was initially going to spare her. Before Miyabi can kill her however, Homura and the Crimson Squad appear to assist the Hanzo girls, and afterwards, the Hebijo girls leave.Later in the story, Homura returns to Asuka to inform her on how the Crimson Squad's fight with the Hebijo girls went. Upon hearing about Homura's success, Asuka suggests they all go to the hot springs in celebration. Finally, she states that they should invite the Gessen and Hebijo students as well.
