Karai, aka Miwa, is the adopted daughter of the evil Shredder and a villainess in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She is Splinter's biological daughter, but does not know that yet. She debuted in the episode New Girl In Town.

Appearance

Karai is around Donatello's height and is slender. She has short dark brown hair with a bit of blond dyed in the back. She has red marks over her eyes, and often wears a black and silver armored ninja outfit. When she wasn't wearing her outfit, she wore a brown jacket with jeans.

Personality

Unlike her past incarnations, Karai is portrayed as a rebelious teenager. She loves to have fun and cause trouble, and is willing to use her opponents' emotions to her advantage. Karai can be serious when needed to and often chooses to know what's going on in her surroundings first, before dealing with her personal problems as seen numerous times when she encountered the Kraang. 

While she doesn't hold the Vendetta against the Hamato family (her biological family) too much as her adopted father does, Karai will not hesitate to fight them when her family is in jeopardy. She also appeared vengeful as she was willing to fight Splinter, her biological father, because she thought he was the one who killed her mother.

Karai also seems to have a soft spot for those who lost a mother, as seen in "Karai's Vendetta" where she hesitated when April mentioned her mother's death.

History

Karai is the biological daughter of Splinter and Tang Shen, named Miwa. The family once lived in harmony until Oroku Saki "The Shredder" attacked their home in the middle of the night and battled Splinter to the death. The fight caused a fire to break out killing Tang Shen in the process. Splinter had thought Miwa died in the fire, but unknown to him, out of revenge, Shredder had kidnapped her, feeling he should take something from his former friend since he took something from him; the love of Tang Shen. Since then, Shredder had renamed her Karai, raised her as his own daughter, taught her ninjitsu, and told her what happened to Tang Shen. Only he had told her a completely different story where he and Tang Shen were together and it was Splinter who caused the fire and killed her.

Trivia

  • Karai used Harmony (Miwa) as a false name when she first met April.
  • She thought of Leo as a friend until he and the turtles betrayed her and tried to tazer the Shredder, and she said,"I thought you were better than this!"
  • Karai and the turtles are technically siblings, due to Splinter adopting them right before their mutations.
  • Despite her high popularity and importance, no action figure is planned, although there are rumors one will be made in 2014 or sold with another character.
  • Shredder had lied to her stating that it was Splinter who killed Tang Shen and Shredder saved her life, when in reality he is simply using her as a tool to kill Hamato Yoshi. However, she is the only thing he does care about.
  • It is revealed in "Showdown" that Karai is really Miwa, Splinter's daughter, officially showing the connection between the two in more detail. Though there were several hints that showed that she was indeed Miwa, as seen in her reaction with Shredder as he said, "Have you forgotten what Hamato Yoshi did to me...to us?"
  • She has a torn picture of her Mother that she stares at frequently, implying that she has a deep longing to be with her Mother.
