When Kitana was a little girl about 6 years old, her parents went looking for a sacred full moon necklace. This necklace is made of nightmare substance and contains a little bit of Manny's power to make it conceal and collect nightmares. Her parents never returned. After about 7 years, the 13 year old Kitana went to search for her parents. She enjoyed the darkness and the mysterious secrets that it holds. She ended up wandering into the Shadow Region in hopes she would find the necklace and more importantly her parents. She decided she would rest during the day and wander around at night because she felt safer in the darkness. As she wandered through the mysterious Shadow Region, she heard a noise. She walked over to the noise only to find a strange horse made of black sand. She decided to follow it thinking it would lead her to her parents. It led her right into the horrors of Pitch's Lair. There she learned how to be a ninja fearling and became Pitch's beloved adopted daughter. She is currently 367 years old and owns the full moon necklace and a nightmare of her own.
Kitana comes off a bit rude and likes to make smart comments about everyone. She's not a people person and she is really shy when you first meet her. She quickly puts her defense up if she feels insulted or like someone is making fun of her. She acts like she hates everything and everyone, but she really is nice... Well once you get to know her or get on her good side.
