She is part of a group of children who are set out to save their parents from the Berman Empire.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Sheena is always shy with her timid and quiet nature. Her doll, named Bleuette, was made for her by her mother.
Sheena is a Russian Blue Felineko with baby-blue colored braided hair and white fur throughout the rest of her body. She is dressed in a plain dress and a hooded cape. Wrapped around the tip of her tail is a grayish ribbon adorned with an accessory. Her left ankle also has a small piece of jewelry wrapped around it.
History[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]
Sheena lived among the rare Felineko who possessed the power of Nono, or magical powers. She lived alongside her mother and sister, with her mother in particular sewing a tiny doll to keep her company, which Sheena named Bleuette.
Felineko were already at risk for the Berman army's racism, but Sheena and her clan were specifically targeted by the Berman army to support Shvein Hax's plans because of the abundance of Bio-Energy inside of them resulting from their magical powers. While she and the rest of her clan were captured, Sheena had managed to escape due to the aid of Britz Strudel, a Berman child soldier. She was accosted by Berman soldiers, but was saved by the Taranis crew. Seeing that they were looking to free others, Sheena begged to join and save her family.
Later on, Sheena reveals her magic powers to the crew by lighting up the dark interiors of the Taranis for the first time, giving them hope and delight. Despite this, she dislikes her magic powers because of the suffering they caused her and her family, though link events can change her mind. If she survives long enough, Sheena will be the first to reunite with her family, saving her mother and sister from Doktor Blutwurst's energy-absorbing machines just in time. Despite this, she continues to accompany her friends on the Taranis in gratitude for their help in saving her clan.
Sacrifice[edit | edit source]
In very early concept art, her death had been portrayed with the other children mourning over her grave. Tied to the wooden cross was her ribbon and sitting against it was Bleuette. This scene did not make it to the final game.
After the War[edit | edit source]
Canonically, Sheena will survive the events of the war and live a happy life with her mother and sister, finally unafraid of her powers.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Fuga: Melodies of Steel[edit | edit source]
Sheena is an unusual Machine Gunner. She's average among the four gunners in stats, but her skills provide special utilities by using her magic to empower the Taranis. She can absorb enemy HP with Syphon Beam, cause constant SP regeneration with Mystic Veil, nullify attacks that hit less than 15% of the Taranis' HP in damage and cause massive HP and (at a low chance) armor damage with Arcane Shot. Her support is all about SP regeneration, allowing normal and link attacks to restore SP. She also has a few healing skills.
Her Hero Mode is incredibly powerful, allowing her to act immediately after using a skill. Though she only deals small bursts of damage due to being a Machine Gunner, she's very useful as a utility and healing party member due to her speed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In keeping with the theme of naming the children after sweets, Sheena's surname Falafel comes from a Middle Eastern dish of fried balls of ground chickpeas.
- A scenario cut from Fuga implies Sheena may have been suicidal and would nearly kill herself in the Soul Cannon Chamber. Hanna would save her just as the chamber began to charge.
