Shenhua appears in the first Shenmue
game only in Ryo's
dreams, and at this point, little is known about the character. She makes a physical appearance during disc four of Shenmue II
in Guilin, guiding Ryo through the forest to her village. It is revealed that Shenhua's bloodline had is important to the Dragon
mirrors; the stone they are crafted from can only be found in her village. Shenhua's true role in the Shenmue story remains obscured by the cliffhanger ending, and the chances of a sequel being released are slim (the franchise has been dormant for years).
