Hibana (緋花 Hibana?) is a kunoichi who made her debut in Sega's Nightshade (Kunoichi in Japan), as the first playable female ninja in the Shinobi series. A member of the Shinobi Agency, she hails from the Oboro Ninja Clan just as Hotsuma does.
A female ninja and member of the Shinobi Agency.
Although she is of the Oboro clan bloodline, being a girl meant she was unable to vie for the leadership of the clan. Instead, she was sent to be raised by the Mukuro Clan, a branch of the Oboro. She then encountered Jimushi from the Shinobi Agency who taught her the way of the ninja. Finally feeling a sense of acceptance, she grew close to Jimushi, but then one day he suddenly vanished.
Having been abandoned twice, once by the Oboro and again by Jimushi, Hibana has lost all interest in life. She now merely follows orders, generally with a surly and uncaring attitude. Her mantra is "Today's just not my day".
She fights using two swords. The larger one, Utsushiyo (現世；Transient World), is a prototype weapon created by analyzing the accursed Akujiki and then copying its powers. The smaller blades, Futaba (二羽 Two Wings), were given to her by Jimushi when she went out on her first mission for him.
Her theme is "Vengeful Beauty" from Nightshade.
She attacks with her blades, kunai, and her shadows to deal damage to foes.
