Motto: "I can see through my enemy's deceptions, because the keenest eye is that which looks inward."
Kim Arashikage studied and competed in three forms of martial arts from the time she was seven until she graduated from Bryn Mawr. Upon arriving in Japan for a vacation, she discovered that her family had been ninjas for generations and was, in fact, the cousin of Storm Shadow. She was officially initiated into the Arashikage clan and trained as a kunoichi by the Blind Master. Eventually, Snake Eyes took her as an apprentice and convinced her to bring her skills to the G.I. JOE team, where she earned the nickname Jinx after putting the whammy on COBRA.
Kim Arashikage has been to the Secret Mountain and studied the Seven Silent Forms with the Blind Master. She has the Eye That Pierces, the Iron Hand, and the Heart That Waits. To compensate for her diminutive stature, she also excels in infiltration and covert ops. She can bypass enemy listening posts, slip through their outer perimeter wire, worm her way past the sentries, avoid the infrared sensors, penetrate their command bunker, capture digital imagery of battle plans, and escape without ever being detected.
No variations of Kim Arashikage (v2) are known to exist.
Versions of Jinx
In 2003, Jinx was renamed "Agent Jinx" and in 2012 renamed "Kim Arashikage." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Jinx."
