EtymologyEdit

"Shadow-chaser" derives from 影追い: 影 = shadow, 追い = chase.

Star Comics (it) only describes the technique: Tecnica segreta Inseguimento to dell'ombra (Secret technique to chase the shadow).[8]

DescriptionEdit

Nina's sensing ability enables her technique: attack the target by shadowing the Yoma energy signature, until the aura is extinguished.[9]

Nina appears to align her energy with the target's, then her sword arm shadows target's aura. The techinque resembles Galatea's Yoma Energy Alignment and Control.

HistoryEdit

Awakened HuntEdit

In the Alfons mountains, a hunt lead by Nina engages a cricket-like awakened. She uses Shadow-chaser to counterattack. When the awakened threatens to kill Nina, her comrades cut off his arms.[10]

RebellionEdit

Cassandra fights Audrey, Rachel and Nina. When Cassandra's Dusteater cuts off Rachel's limbs, Nina attacks with Shadow-chaser.[11]
