Arsinoe Shijo (née Massri) (アルスィノエ・シジオ Arusinoe Shijio) is the mother of Tiye Shijo, wife of Satoshi Shijo, the daughter of Cleopatra Massri, sister of Amon Massri, and the sister-in-law of Akane Shijo. She is the former protector of the Legendary Dragons, having passed the cards to Tiye.

Physical description

Arsinoe is a slender and beautiful middle-aged Egyptian woman with medium-length dark, rich, red hair, tanned skin and blue eyes. She wears a pale cream sleeveless dress, a transparent veil that rests on her shoulders like a cape, and light tan boots. She also wears gold bracelets and has gold ringlets in her hair. She also wears a gold headpiece styled after the Millennium Necklace.


Arsinoe is seen as a calm and loving mother. She is very good at hiding her emotions, which she did when Satoshi vanished and she knew she had to stay strong for her daughter. Arsinoe is very protective of her daughter and often worries that she will get teased for not having a father around. She worries that if someone learns that she is raising Tiye on her own, they might get second thoughts.

Arsinoe was born into the Massri Family, a family that protected and guarded the Legendary Dragons, as the only daughter of Cleopatra and the younger sister of Amon. At a young age, Arsinoe learned that she was chosen as the next guardian after her mother. Growing up Arsinoe became fascinated with the history of Egypt and wanted to learn more. She attended a private school in Cairo where she learned everything she could and was the youngest person to graduate at age 18. Growing up in Egypt Arsinoe was also friends with Ishizu, Odion, and Marik Ishtar.

Sometime during her early 20s, she met Satoshi Shijo, who was visiting Egypt to study their art. It was love at first sight and the two began dating. After introducing Satoshi to her mother, the Legendary Dragons were created and Arsinoe was given their card forms. Three years later, Satoshi, with permission from Cleopatra, proposed to Arsinoe who accepted. They married in Egypt before moving to Japan and a year and half later, they welcomed their daughter Tiye to the world. Knowing that with Tiye born, Amon would do nothing to become guardian and use their power for his own good. So, Arsinoe asked the Dragons if Tiye could be the next guardian despite the fact that the dragons chose the next guardian themselves. The dragons eventually agreed but make Arsinoe promise that Tiye was to not play them in a duel until the time was right and the new mother agreed.

However, when Tiye was around six-seven years old, Satoshi suddenly vanished without a trace. Unable to think clearly, Arsinoe called her mother and asked her to move in to help her. Arsinoe then pulled Tiye out of school and began to home-school her in fear of losing her too.

Nine years after Satoshi's disappearance, Arsinoe allows Tiye to try out for Duel Academy.


  • Arsinoe is named after the Egyptian Queen of the same name.
  • Arsinoe's ringlets are styled after Ishizu Ishtar's.
