Tang Shen was a young woman who married Splinter, only to be presumably killed by The Shredder. Her daughter was Miwa. Tang Shen was loved by both Hamato Yoshi (Splinter) and Oroku Saki (The Shredder).
At some point, she married Yoshi and gave birth to their baby daughter, Miwa. A jealous Saki attacked Yoshi in the family's home, and during their battle, Yoshi's house caught fire. While Yoshi survived, Tang Shen did not and Miwa was taken away by The Shredder. After this, Yoshi left Japan and moved to New York City. Her death is possibly the reason that Yoshi bought the turtles in the first place.
She has yet to have an official appearance outside of the flashbacks and photos.
