Actually, this reminds me of one of the first characters I ever created
as an NPC. Even today her stats are pretty ridiculous by any standards,
although I had a backstory to account for it.
Basically what happened was, she was a Jonin ninja of near World Warrior
skill level who was assigned to track down a traitor of her clan. When
she finally met up with him, he fought back far harder than she
expected, and as a result, utterly destroyed her. Turned out that her
clan elders had ties to United Enforcement (remember them?) and pulled
in a favor from their cybernetics division. She was re-built
completely, and her already-formidable skills were enhanced by a few
million dollars worth of cybernetic implants.
Imagine if you will a fighter around the level of Chun Li (she was
originally Wu Shu, then when I got the Player's Guide I made her a
"proper" ninja), who then got enough hardware to double her special
Among her other obscenities are physical stats of 6/8/6, Wits of 6 or
higher (I forget), 7 Kick, 8 Athletics, Sword skill at 6 or so, and
enough maneuvers of all ranks to give Shock a run for his money.
Cybernetic claws, Cartwheel Kick, Yoga Teleport, Speed of the Mongoose,
Zen No Mind, Rekka Ken, Shock Treatment, Shrouded Moon, all of the
special ninja punches, and a load of others; nearly all Wu Shu/Ninjitsu
common maneuvers, some from Kung Fu, many generic, and a small bunch of
Focus maneuvers emulated through cybernetics.
Needless to say I rarely use her except for scare tactics, and none of
my players know that she has that many maneuvers. They just know that
every time she shows, there is a problem.
Far as the story goes, she's somewhat of a tac-nuke for her clan; they
are one of the only small ninja clans left in Japan that hasn't knuckled
under to Bison or gone into hiding, and it's because even though he
would never admit it, Bison knows that if the clan ever pointed her in
his direction and said "Kill", his head would be at the clan elder's
feet in less than a day no matter what he did to prevent it. As a
result, Bison occasionally asks favors or hires out members of the clan,
but he will never attempt to control them, content in their uneasy
The character herself is quite frightening; she is incapable of speaking
due to her reconstruction (most of her face from the bridge of the nose
down is gone, covered by metal in an MK/Kitana fashion) and only one of
her eyes is natural, the other being a black lens. Her claws are
retractable, she moves with blinding speed and accuracy (and grace,
naturally), but her mannerisms are dead and mechanically efficient.
Her name? Miyamoto Otaka.
