Master Splinter

Remember, to be a true ninja you must become one with the shadows. Darkness gives the ninja power, while light reveals the ninja's presence.

You heartless monster! Have you no compassion for those who give their lives for you? You are no better than the snaring wretches who serve the evil one!
~ Splinter to the Ninja Tribunal

Where there is life, there is hope.


Splinter is the master of the Ninja Turtles. While his backstory changes through incarnations, this specific Splinter was the pet rat of the master martial artist Hamato Yoshi, originally belonging to Yoshi's late love Tang Shen after he fled with the Utroms. He learned martial arts from mimicking Yoshi's fighting style. The two were unfortunately separated when Yoshi was slain by the Utrom Shredder after the former failed to reveal the locations of the other Utroms. Splinter fled to the sewers, and found the Turtles and taught them martial arts not soon after.
