Shiva is a slim aeon with a feminine and humanoid appearance, and wears limited clothing. Her Final Fantasy X appearance is notable for her hair, which is tied up in very long, bright blue dreadlocks.
The symbol for Shiva and Macalania (see "Shiva's seal" in the gallery for this section) is annotated with the kanji for ice (氷, Kōri?).
Shiva has the highest initial Agility and Evasion of all the aeons. Her special attack is called Heavenly Strike, which does ice damage and inflicts Threaten to enemy. Though she starts out knowing only ice magic, she can be taught any ability provided the player has enough items. Ice magic heals her. Her Overdrive is Diamond Dust, and her victory pose is to sweep back her hair.

Final Fantasy XEdit
Shiva appears as a boss when summoned by other summoners.
Shiva's Final Fantasy X incarnation is summonable by Yuna in-battle to perform either Heavenly Strike or Diamond Dust.
Shiva also returns as a summonstone, with the same function as in Dissidia. Her auto version is now found in Chapter Six: Indiscernible Truth of Scenario 012. The manual version can be purchased from certain Moogle Shops for 30 KP.
Whilst not physically appearing Yuna can summon Shiva's Glyph to use Heavenly Strike.
Shiva appears as ability cards. She also appears as an enemy summoned by Meia that can be fought during multiplayer mode.
Shiva (also spelled Śiva) is a Hindu god. The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. Shiva is a male god, but can merge with his consort Parvati to become Ardhanari, an androgynous Hindu god of duality. Shiva is the god of destruction along with Vishnu, who is the god of preservation, and Brahma, the god of creation. Together they are the three principle deities of the Trimurti (Hindu Triad). It is believed he periodically destroys the world, then recreates it.
Shiva has different human forms, males and females. When he was in his avatar form, he spent most of his times in the Himalayan snow mountain. Shiva in the Final Fantasy series is likely inspired by one of his female avatars.
