A Whole New Shell Game
Shredder is the alias taken by the Utrom criminal Ch'rell upon crash-landing on Earth. As he arrived in feudal Japan, he began a vicious ninja clan known as The Foot. Shredder waged a private war with the other Utroms that had been stranded on Earth for hundreds of years. However, Shredder made the mistake of slaying one of the Utroms' human allies, a ninja known as Hamato Yoshi. This set off a chain of events that acted as a catalyst to Shredder becoming the mortal foe of Splinter the rat and his Turtle students.
Heroes in a Half Shell
Many years ago in Japan, two men were members of the honorable ninja clan called the Foot - Oroku Saki and Hamato Yoshi. Saki was jealous of Yoshi, and plotted to have him thrown out of the clan. When a visiting Shidoshi arrived, Saki pinned the back of Yoshi's kimono with a knife, preventing him from bowing in front of the ninja master. As an added bonus in Saki's favor, Yoshi pulled the knife in front of the Shidoshi, making it appear as if he was staging an assassination attempt. Yoshi was subsequently exiled not only from the clan, but Japan as a whole.

A penniless Yoshi was forced to live in the New York City sewers, while Saki took over the Foot Clan, gradually changing it into a crime syndicate. Saki also took the guise of "The Shredder", an armor-wearing ninja fiend. Not content to simply having his rival a ruined hobo on the other side of the world, Shredder allied with the alien warlord Krang, and gained access to a substance known as Retromutagen Ooze. Shredder planned to pour this Ooze down into the New York sewers, killing Yoshi. Instead, Yoshi was transformed into an anthropomorphic rat, and the four pet turtles Yoshi had adopted also mutated to have human-like traits. In attempting to murder his most hated foe, Shredder accidentally gave birth to a whole new level of adversaries. Hamato Yoshi, now known as Splinter, trained the four turtles in the martial art of ninjutsu, and kept them on retainer to stop the nefarious Shredder's plans of world domination.
