Tang Shen was the wife of Hamato Yoshi (Splinter), and the mother of Miwa (Karai). She was caught in the early feud between Splitner and the Shredder, and was the catalysed that pitted the two against each in long history of war.


Early life

Shen was loved by both Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki (Shredder). Saki tried to talk Tang into leaving for America, because she didn't want to stay in Japan anymore, but he kept by Hamato's side. and soon they got married and had a daughter, Miwa. Oroku was so furious the family, ending with their house on fire, which killed Shen, and horribly burning Saki's face. Hamato thought Miwa was also dead, but the Shredder had kidnapped Miwa in revenge, raising her as his own daughter (renaming her Karai).
