|“||There is undoubtedly a fascinating story in how my old nemesis came to teach ninjutsu to four mutant turtles. Perhaps I will let one of you live long enough to tell it.||„|
Born in rural Japan, Oroku Saki is the primarily antagonist of Nickelodeons Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Originally a good friend to Hamato Yoshi. Growing up, the two were considered equals in the arts of Ninjutsu. However, their friendship was strained as both had romantic feelings for a women named Tang Shen. Eventually, Tang Shen would fall in love with Hamato Yoshi and two were a happy couple and soon had a daughter named Miwa.
Unfortunately, their happiness was cut short when Oroku Saki's anger got the best of him and burned down their house, killing Tang Shen in the process. It was believed that their daughter, Miwa was also killed, but it was later revealed that he kidnapped their daughter and trained her to be a ninja assassin.
Fast forward to the present and Oroku Saki; now known as The Shredder is the boss of a crime syndicate in Japan called The Foot Clan. After noticing a throwing star baring the insignia of his old rival, Hamato Yoshi, The Shredder traveled to New York City, making the Big Apple his new headquarters. From then, The Shredder would become the first major villain, as well as the most proficient one the turtles have faced.
