Tsurigane first appears during the Jailbreak Trial. She receives help from unnamed ninja who have muscular body while climbing the wall of 2nd Reformatory (Juvenile Hall). Two days before starting Jailbreak Trial, she helps Kouga School member to sneak into Academy City easily. She introduces Jailbreak Trial to Oumi Shuri to observe Academy City's technology and achieve Oumi's purpose.
Tsurigane is trained in Kouga ninjutsu, though apparently she is not good at it. Also, Oumi Shuri references Tsurigane having an ability as well when thinking about esper powers she wanted to see for herself, implying that Tsurigane went through the Power Curriculum Program and has an esper ability.
