Story Edit

Long before the story of Dark Air, Shenando was Princess Rania Rosy Matea, second princess of Faynia and potential heir to the throne. She officially competed with her sister Tar Firi for the throne but neither of them really want the bothersome job of becoming queen. While she excel in martial art and combat, Tar Firi excel in scholar and intellect, making them the polar opposite of each other. Despite so, they were very close to each other and would often talk about the country and other topics.

One of the topic that they talked about was the matter of governance. When a ruler comes into a situation between sacrificing the few for the greater good, Rania had a hard time going through with it. But Tar Firi, on the other hand, did not hesitate to make small sacrifice for the good of the realm. Thus Rania recognized Tar Firi as the better fit of the two to become Queen of Faynia. She then told her sister that she would travel the world to experience life and sympathize with the ten percent that Tar Firi did not. Thus, on the day where one of them were to be chosen as queen, Rania fled the kingdom and Tar Firi was chosen as queen by default.

After fleeing the capital, Rania changed her name to Shenando and went under the alias of a sword woman. That was when she decided to confront Steve Vai, who was said to be the strongest swordsman in the world. She wanted to test her strength with him but quickly found out how overwhelmingly weak she was compare to Steve. After her crushing defeat, she dedicated the following three years of her life to growing stronger in order to surpass Steve's strength.That is where our story began.

Shenando first appear in Chapter One as a escort of Count Hundert in order to obtain the Varsir Family plate. After defeating the Thief Guild with ease, she left the Count and made her way to the nearest tavern. That is when she was confronted by Mustain and Melrose asking her to join their team. She refused at first but later reconsidered when she saw that Melrose was actually a boy and potentially the person Vincent Zappa was looking for. But before she could decided, they were attacked by Team Chopper and Shenando was quickly forced into battle.

With Shenando's strength, the three of them were able to defeat Team Chopper with ease and escape into the forest. There, Mustain begin to explain to Shenando that Melrose is able to use magic in Dark Air and is indeed the person that Vincent Zappa was looking for. Now knowing the situation, Shenando agreed to become part of their team and their next move was set to recruit a range shooter into their team.
