- I've lived a long time, but I can be killed. I know I can. My quest would make no sense if there weren't terrible risks. If there wasn't... pain.

History of character is unknown.
- Immortality: Blessed by Merlin, Ystina is the last of her line of knights and gifted with the ability to live on to carry out her quest to find the Holy Grail.
- Shining Knight (Ystina) was created by Grant Morrison and Simone Bianchi, first appearing in Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight #1. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Shining Knight (Ystina) first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Demon Knights #1 by Paul Cornell and Diogenes Neves.
- It was initially assumed that Ystina was a girl who adjusted her name and fashion to pretend she was a boy because girls could not become knights. It was later established that Ystina identified as "not just a man or a woman. I'm both".
- Ystina claims to have drunk from the Holy Grail. Multiple times and it tastes better than you imagine.
