Half-Shaded Shiki (半陰となりし色, Han-In to nari shi Shiki) also known as Rasetsu/Bust Shiki is an alternate version of Shiki who fully succumbs to her duties as the “Woman of Yin Half". She was introduced only in Samurai Shodown 64-2 as one of the three sub bosses defending the entrance to Yuga’s lair. She is symbolized by skeletal snake. She is voiced by Kaori Minami.
When Yuga resurrects itself a second time, it sends its new servant, Shadow Asura, to capture Shiki, restore her memories and regain her servitude. This time she was given even more powerful serpent mark, so she could not break the spell. The Asura Zanmaden Drama CD implies that Yuga was able to fully exert its control over her after healing the wounds she suffered fighting Genjuro. She unexpectedly fell in love with Shadow Asura.
With her new powers, she finally captured Haohmaru and made him a cold blooded murderer also known as “Sword Demon Haohmaru”. Together with her beloved Shadow Asura and the enslaved Haohmaru, they defended the entrance of Yuga’s lair. After the two Asuras killed Yuga, Shadow Asura disappeared and she along with Haohmaru finally lost Yuga’s influence and returned to their normal states.
She is more sarcastic and sensual than her original ego, yet she has no hope of salvation as she will always be her master's loyal puppet.
