Albeit, it is later revealed that Tina is reluctant when it comes to killing; as her entire body shakes violently when aiming to take someone's life.

Tina could not draw herself to attack him, mostly stuttering or shaking upon seeing him, and even hesitates to attack him during their confrontation.
During the second attempt to assassinate Seitenshi, she could not draw herself to talk to him after she defeated Enju and took her phone, possibly because she feels that she betrayed him. She was tricked into a place where Rentaro engage with a fight. After Rentaro went though all the trouble to track her location, they started fighting and she won the hand-to-hand combat. When she is about to end Rentaro's life, the flash bang suddenly exploded. The explosion blinded her temporary, and then she was defeated by Rentaro. After being defeated, she requested Rentaro to kill because she is a body of technology, but the latter carried her together with him instead.
