E-Pandora Project ArcEdit
- Main article: E-Pandora Project Arc
Jina was first introduced in the E-Pandora Project arc. Her first appearance was her attendance at Scarlett Ohara's introductory speech directed towards the Pandoras held in the main auditorium, where she is seen standing with Rattle, Amelia Evans, and several other unnamed E-Pandora's. Shortly after she antagonizes Joan Ala in the mock battle designed to gather data upon the difference in strength between Pandora and E-Pandora, Jina is easily beaten by her and places her hope of beating the original Pandora on Amelia, who later was beaten by Elizabeth Mably. Shocked by the supreme capabilities of the original Pandora, Jina is seen in a rather frustrated state. When all of the E-Pandora regrouped in their locker room, however, she is easily calmed and inspired by Amelia's words. Later, Jina faces a frustrated Amelia over her volunteering as the prime subject for the "Mark IV" medicine. She then comments her dismay of Amelia's sacrificial behavior as quick means to become stronger, she then implies that she also wants to become a active contributor for the project by volunteering for the medicine, stating that Amelia shouldn't take up all the burdens alone, unknowingly that this act of "self-sacrifice" would later cause her demise.
During the Mark IV tests, Jina has her Stigmata synchronized with the Stigmata of an unnamed Pandora, mentally challenging her to show her the power she was born with. She is shown to have gotten considerably stronger, able to nearly outmatch and fight on par with the Pandora. But afterwards, Jina is constantly seen in an ever-declining state of sanity, accompanied with extreme signs of pain and stress. She tells Dr. Ohara that she shouldn't stop with the experiments, stating that she wants to make the project a success together no matter what.
After she starts her Nova-fication, Jina still has remnants of her humanity and goes to the E-Pandora quarters to try and warn Amelia of the Mark IV's side-effects. She then fights both Elizabeth Mably and Charles Bonaparte. She is eventually killed by the latter.
She is given a makeshift funeral pyre by her friends with her possessions being burned with her. Her death would become one of the reasons for the E-Pandora Rebellion.
- As an E-Pandora, Jina's abilities are below a real Pandora such as not producing her own Volt Weapon. When injected with Mark IV, she is able to utilize her own Volt Weapon, being a long staff, and overpower the real Pandora. In the anime, she produced an Accel Turn.
- In her Nova Form due to the side-effects of the Mark IV, Jina overpowered Elizabeth and even broke Andre's Freezing.
A close friend and fellow E-Pandora. Jina gained inner strength from Amelia and volunteered to be injected with the Mark IV as a way of repaying Amelia for her sacrifice with the Mark III.
A close friend and fellow E-Pandora.
Aside from Amelia and Rattle, Scarlett was the one person Jina trusted above all else. She believed in Scarlett up until the very end of her humanity.
- Jina was the first E-Pandora to die in the series. She was also the first E-Pandora, if not the first Pandora, to turn into a Nova Form by forced means (injection of the Mark IV drug).
- In the anime, Jina does not synchronize her Stigmata with the nameless Pandora. Instead she synchronizes with that of Satellizer and would later fight her in another mock battle.
- Jina has the same voice actor as Creo Brand (Izumi Kitta).
