* Enju Ueno ''VisualNovel/{{Nightshade}}'' is considered a symbol of peace by her village, since she was born from the union of two formerly warring clans after peace was reached. Because of this, she has never been allowed on a mission despite her aspirations to be a shinobi. When she finally ''does'' get to go on a mission, she ends up in several real life-or-death situations and is woefully unprepared because she's spent her whole life being protected by other people. This is directly addressed in Hanzo's route; Enju dedicates herself to her training because she knows that if she wants to stay alive, she has to rely on her own strength.
