Shin is a recruitable character in Radiata Stories. He is a Light Elf who guards the entrance to the City of Flowers, alongside his fellow Light Elf friend, Fan. Like Fan, he consistently encounters Genius and continually denies him access to the City of Flowers.
Shin is first seen when the Rose Cochon Brigade attempts to enter the City of Flowers with the help of Genius. As Jack is about to walk through the crevace, Shin and Fan float down from above and demand to know what the party wants. Upon recognizing Genius, they send the group away and threaten to kill them if they are still there when they come back.
Shin is next seen when Ridley attempts to enter the City of Flowers on her own. As Jack and Ridley prepare to enter the crevace, Shin and Fan sneak up behind them and hold Ridley at knifepoint. Zane approaches and declares that Ridley shall be killed as an ultimatum to the human race. However, Jack interjects and offers to conquer Fort Helencia on his own in exchange for Ridley's freedom. After Jack and Ridley are reunited, Shin is seen attending the strategy meeting with Parsec the next morning, seated between Gil and Row. Shin's final appearance comes when Parsec is attacked in Fire Mountain. Shin bursts into the meeting room and announces to Zane and Jack that Parsec is under attack.
Shin is a Light Elf who is kind and warm-hearted to everyone except humans, whom he cannot stand. He tries to avoid all contact with them. Some say that he became this way because of a certain incident that occured when he visited a human village.
A defensive character by nature, Shin is rather average when it comes to fighters. Unlike the majority of Non-Human characters, Shin possesses the ability to heal, making him a valuable commodity and a rare one at that. However, offensively, he is rather weak. His Attack stats are too low to make use of his Light Bow or Leaf Barrier for damage output. Still, if Shin is chosen to act as more of a medic, Light Bow can provide a bit of damage while he is waiting to cure wounded allies and Leaf Barrier can help keep enemies away from him, allowing him to stay alive and continue healing the rest of the team.
