Separated from her parents at a young age, Jiya was adopted by a wise old Kabbadi Master, Kabaddi Jan. He took her under his wing and taught her the ancient art of Takht Kabaddi, a new kind of fighting style where books and pens are primarily used as weapons in conjunction with a variety of karate moves. To the locals, she is known simply as the inspirational school teacher Jiya, but whenever evil is afoot, she takes on her alter identity, Burka Avenger and uses Takht Kabaddi to defeat her enemies. As the Burka Avenger, she uses the Burka to hide her true identity, which no one knows except for her father, Kabaddi Jan.
