How Shun'ei joined the Tourney
Shun'ei is a manipulator of illusions. Due to his mysterious powers, he was abandoned at a young age by his parents and was raised as a disciple of Tung Fu Rue. Their home is near the Sichuan region where Mian lives and works. Through his training, Shun'ei learned how to control his powers. As Tung's last disciple, he sets out to challenge other fighters from all over the world with his close friend Meitenkun.
It is revealed that Shun'ei has one of Verse's power on his left-half, one of the two creatures, along with an unknown blue creature, created from the result of Ash Crimson changing time to erase himself and Saiki; their powers are somehow implanted into Shun'ei in the new timeline.
After Verse's defeat, Shun'ei is advised by Kyo to continue his training to keep his powers under control. Shun'ei agrees and vows to train harder.
As he trained for the second Tourney, Shun'ei is approached by a robot unit called Bastion.
