Naru Amoh is a character in the Battle Arena Toshinden series. She made her first appearance in Battle Arena Toshinden 2 as a background character for Kayin Amoh, but in Battle Arena Toshinden 3 , she appeared as both the secret final boss of the game and as an unlockable hidden character.

She then appeared as an initially playable character in Toshinden 4 , serving as the main deuteragonist alongside with the main protagonist Subaru Shinjo. In the second and third game, she is portrayed as a child, but in the fourth game, she has grown into a teenager.


Naru was originally the daughter of a scientist who had worked for the Gerard Foundation. When her father came across confidential plans to use his work in progress for further control over the world populace and start a more oppressive reign over the globe, he and Naru fled their home in attempts of safety from her father's employers. Inevitably tracked down by the Secret Society, Naru's father was killed when they had set up an assassination with a bounty hunter who was told that her father was a remorseless criminal and was hunted down as such. In hiding and having witnessed the bounty hunter killing her father, Naru barely was able to escape the vicinity away from her father's murderer. Alone and without anywhere to go to at her late father's hotel room, later the next day, she had received a visit from a man who claimed he was a friend of her father's, and said was told by her father that if anything should have happened to him, he was to take care of her. Though she knew deep down the man was her father's murderer, the bounty hunter had realized he had been set up and that the man he strongly felt to be rid of from the world was not the despicable mark he thought and told was. Out of immense guilt and in hopes of one day atoning for the murder of her father, the bounty hunter took her in; his name was Kayin Amoh. Since then, Naru accompanied Kayin on his endless wanderings throughout the globe.

One day, Kayin's journeys soon saw him leave on extended periods of time, longer than he usually took. Unbenownst to her, Kayin at these times was participating in the first Toshindendaibukai, on a quest to discover his foster father's murderer. When he had come back and discovered the culprit's identity, life had resumed as normal for the two, until half a year later, mysterious figures kept trailing her and Kayin. One day when Kayin was out running errands, Naru thought to open their hotel room open to the staff, but was immediately captured and taken away by agents of the Secret Society. Kidnapped to draw out Kayin, Naru was eventually rescued from their clutches, and witnessed the collapse of the Secret Society alongside Kayin, who had grown and fought through adversity enough to properly call her his daughter.

A year later, Kayin displayed more doting and inquisitive behavior, pondering and thinking off into the distance more than usual, and one day decided that Naru should be in the care of a Catholic orphanage for her safety while he was to take a long trip. Knowing deep down that Kayin still felt insecure about being able to call him her father and forgive himself for the murder of her father a long time ago, Naru promised to herself that she would tell him of her forgiveness and that he was worthy of being her foster father. When Kayin returned, Naru saw he had changed. Asking her for a very important coversation, Naru told Kayin of her forgiveness and love as a family, but Kayin, though accepted and returning her love as a father to her, told her the truth that the path he walked was of a fighter, whose life was filled with strife and unknown danger. Wanting her foster daughter to live a peaceful and stable life away from the one he continued to walk, Kayin told Naru that the next trip he would take, he wouldn't be sure that he would come back. Giving her his sword case, Kayin ultimately left and parted ways with Naru forever. Though she kept waiting and hoping, Kayin never returned. As time passed, she began to think that the reason her father had left her at the orphanage was because he saw her as a burden. However, she dismissed these thoughts and began training with Kayin's legendary sword; Excalibur, determined to master his fighting style and prove she was not useless to him.

On her sixteenth birthday, she ran away from the orphanage and set out to find her father and the true reason of why he had never returned for her. After learning from Duke B. Rambert that Eiji Shinjo, her father's best friend, would possibly know of Kayin's whereabouts, Naru had soon received a pair of invitations to the infamous Toshindaibukai, each marked mysteriously with the initial "E".

Within time, she ran into both Rook Castle, a kung-fu fighter and fan of Eiji's, and Eiji's own student and nephew, Subaru Shinjo. After Naru told Subaru the story of her father's long friendship with his uncle and showed him the invitations, the three agreed to form a team for the fourth Toshindaibukai.

In her ending after defeating Vermilion, she was engulfed in a flash of yellow light as it whited out. She was later seen in another dimension and she hears her foster father's voice who she was worried to look for him as it soon forms the Four Sacred Arms into a ball of light. Naru was happy to see her foster father again and wants him and her to be a family again. Kayin, as the ball of light, tells her to follow the path on what she believes in. When Naru sadly wants to wait for him after they met each other for a long time, the ball of light reverts back into the Four Sacred Arms as it scatters away and Naru looked upward and screams her foster father's name in anguish.

Naru does not realize that her father Kayin is dead after the events of the third Toshindaibukai and searching for his whereabouts and to seek the truth in participating the fourth Toshindaibukai with both Subaru and Rook is all for nothing. In the end of the fourth Toshindaibukai, Naru returns back in England and she sadly takes a phone call at night implying that she had decided to return back to the orphanage after she had left to search for her late adoptive father's whereabouts and to participate in the fourth Toshindaibukai, empty handed.
