Izuna (Japanese: イヅナ) is a 16-year-old unemployed ninja with a flair for the dramatic. She travels with her fellow ninjas and surrogate family: Gen-An and Shino whom she affectionately refers to as 'Grandboss' and 'Shino-Sis' respectively and Mitsumoto.

Background[edit | edit source]

In the distant past, peace settled upon the land as monsters stopped attacking humans, leading to friendly relations between countries. The Gods, which the people alternately feared and worshiped began to fade from the minds of people. As with the Gods, so too did the ninjas find themselves without a role in society.[1]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Izuna can be overly dramatic, going as far as flirting with her friend Mitsumoto and attempting to use reverse psychology to get out of work. Her normal demeanor appears to be calm and collected, to the point of blowing off important events as not being of import.

In Other Media[edit | edit source]

Making their third cameo appearance in Metal Saga: The Ark of Wastes[2] (Japanese: メタルサーガ 〜荒野の方舟〜)[3], Izuna and Shino were available three times as the twenty fourth ultra rare player character armor (skins) available via an in-game lottery[4] as well as a unique weapon. When equipped, the Izuna armor would offer benefits to "evasion", "HP", and "attack power" . Each piece of armor additionally had the ability to negate a different status condition.[5] Service ended on February 28, 2018, giving players 7 months to use the equipment and making it no longer available for use.
