Daiji Shinjin is the leader of the The Iron Path mercenary group in Armored Core: Verdict Day. He held the rank of "Phoenix" and briefly participated in the Verdict War to confront the Lone Mercenary.
Origin: Unknown. Male, Age, Unknown.
Daiji Shinjin was the founder of the mercenary group known as "The Iron Path", which employed a unique combat style founded on the methods of traditional martial arts. He alone held the supreme rank of "Phoenix". Mystery surrounds his organization's beginnings, but rumors claim the so-called truths practiced by The Iron Path's membership are the legacy of the Last Age, or that they are secrets revealed by arcane gods.
During the course of the Verdict War, his disciples came in conflict with Lone Mercenary, and were killed one by one. Enraged by their deaths, he sought him out to seek revenge.
He was killed in action fighting against the Lone Mercenary at the Ratona Naval Port.
Daiji Shinjin's Armored Core, Entei, is a well-rounded tetrapod type, capable of exploiting any weakness and attacking from any range. At a distance, it employs an AM/SRA-217 sniper rifle and AM/LRA-229 laser rifle, while for mid- to close-range combat it uses an AU01 Knave rifle and AM/BRA-224 battle rifle. To supplement its attacks, Entei is also equipped with Su-J-E36 CE missiles.

Entei is actually not that tough of an opponent as he seems. While he has a diverse range of weapons to engage opponents from any range, his AC lacks the durability needed to survive for long battles, primarily due its lack of TE resistance. It's recommended to engage him at closer ranges as he will then be forced to switch to his rifle and battle rifle, both of which are less dangerous than his sniper rifle and laser rifle. His medium missiles can be easily countered with CIWS as well. Beating him on your end would require close range, rapid fire TE weapons such as Pulse guns, pulse machine guns or pulse cannons.
