Shania is one of the main protagonists in the videogame Shadow Hearts: From The New World, a Native American Garvoy tribe priestess and warrior woman with the power to fuse into monsters like the series' previous main protagonist Yuri Hyuga. Shania is not specifically identified as a harmonixer like Yuri, his father or Kurando, she does have Fusion powers very similar to the previously established harmonixers that allow her to fuse with supernatural spirits, which she controls by making contracts with Spirits in order to use their powers.
Shania and her bodyguard Natan are the last two members of the Garvoy tribe, who were killed off by the evil creature known as Lady. Shania and her bodyguard Natan are the last two members of the Garvoy tribe, who were killed off by the evil creature known as Lady. Shania goes through the game with the singular purpose of finding Lady and avenging her people's near genocide. While on the trail of Lady Shania and Natan come across Johnny Garland as one of their best leads. With her bodyguard Natan always at her side, Shania also wanders the country slaying the demons that emerge from the "Window" the very thing that ended Marlow's life. She saves Johnny's life and in turn Johnny asks to accompany her in the hopes that they will find Gilbert. Though Johnny is the player character of the game the plot revolves around Shania's quest for vengeance exclusively for about the first third of the game. Shania's Element is Dark, and she uses twin tomahawks to fight. Unlike Yuri, Shania's first three fusion forms are innately Dark, using spells of Dark and two other elements (with the exception of Thunderbird, who uses only Air and Dark spells). Completing the Garvoy sidequest unlocks both the game's good ending and a fourth fusion, Tirawa, which is Non-Elemental. Voiced by: Ryoko Nagata (JP) Kelly Ray (EN)
