A ninja who appears in Variable Geo.
In the Variable Geo videogames, Chiho is a ninja who is the heir to her clain's leadership. However, she finds this responsibility to be a stifling burden, and would much sooner lead a normal life, and so to escape it enters the Variable Geo tournament. The prize for winning is a substantial sum of money, as well as some prime real estate, which would allow her to set up her desired new life quite nicely.
In the Variable Geo OVA of the late nineties, Chiho simply operates as an agent of her clan, and no mention is made of her wish for independence. She infiltrates the tournament's host, the Jahana group and investigates the agenda of the splinter faction within the organization. Unfortunately, she is discovered and driven into battle with a brainwashed and enhanced Satomi. Following Chiho's defeat, she is tortured then brainwashed and set against the protagonists. However, by the end of the series she is released from her brainwashing with no apparent lasting ill-effects.
