Shantotto was not meant to be a major character in Final Fantasy XI, but her presence is felt across more than a dozen appearances outside of the MMO realm. The following is a list of Shantotto's appearances in and out of the series universe.
If you fail to treat her right, she will set your pants alight.
Revisiting her interdimensional travel spell, Shantotto comes across Eorzea and decides to conquer it to end the conflict with her golems testing the land. When the Adventurer interferes, Shantotto enlarges her Wind-Up Shantotto to fight in her stead. Once her minion is defeated, Shantotto appears before the Adventurer to explain her reasons and gives the Wind-Up Shantotto to the Adventurer and warns him to treat the doll right. From there, recognized to be beyond the Eorzeans' ability to deal with, Shantotto returns to her realm while promising to return to check on their progress.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit
Shantotto represents Final Fantasy XI, and plays as a special character, assumed to oppose Gabranth. She has little influence on the story, being an extra character as well as the only one appearing from Final Fantasy XI, appearing only once in the main storyline.
In her bonus storyline Shantotto is the guardian of a sanctum where other scholars and mages are allowed to study in peace. The area has recently been infested by manikins (by Shantotto herself in manikin-based experiments, which she divulges only in asides to herself), prompting Shantotto to task the player to destroy them. As a "reward," Shantotto gives the player a "private lesson" and battles them before going to duel Gabranth, though she can't recall his name.
Her alternate form has her wear the Black Mage artifact armor, and the black mage relic armor in EX Mode.
Shantotto returns in the prequel to Dissidia along with the other characters, as a full-fledged warrior of Cosmos in flashbacks. She is the guardian of Cosmos's throne and protects her from Gabranth when the judge attacks the goddess. She is present when Prishe finds the Warrior of Light and helps her talk Cosmos into making him one of her warriors.

Shantotto falls into the same predicament as the original Warrior of Light in that she doesn't have much leeway with respect to Synergy, so she will need to rely on her allies and her equipment for support. A notable advantage to Shantotto is her early join time in a low difficulty realm dungeon. Even as she boasts the highest magic among all the characters, as well as notably high resistance and attack for a black mage, she lacks variety in both equipment and abilities. It is most certainly a mystery as to why a Black Mage bearing almost no physical skill would have access to Monk abilities at all, much less as high as Rank 4. Nevertheless, Shantotto, if taken care of properly, can prove a valuable asset to a magic team with her versatile soul breaks and high Magic.
She can equip accessories.
