- "I’ll make you realize your mistake--- while you drown in the regret of having lost to me!"
- ― to Shizuya Kirihara before she tries to kill her
She lost her parents when she was young, so Yukikage raised her along with the other girls that her grandfather adopted.
Her name real name, Yuki, means "snow" in Japanese, which may have subconsciously contributed to her cool personality and fighting style. Her fighting style combines traditional Japanese dance with ice-based Ninja Arts.
Shiori is a petite, young girl who is surprisingly developed for her age. She sports a silvery blue (white during the winter), neck length hair. Shiori has sterling grey eyes and long eyelashes. Many people has described her as monstrously muscular and although she claims everyone is exaggerating, she does state that she is heavier than she looks.
Shiori, unlike the rest of the students, doesn't wear the school uniform. Instead, she wears a zipped black vest along black low-rise shorts with a bronze belt fixed around her waist. Thigh-high black stockings and black flat boots. All that is topped by a mid-thigh long steel blue cloak with white finishing and black hems, and a long grey scarf with white streaks wrapped around her neck. She also wears black protective arm bands and black finger knuckle gloves. However, when in battle, she wears another layer of white protective soft armor.
She usually has a pink japanese-style fan with her, that displays kanji that indicates what she is going to do or what she is talking about.
As a child, Shiori was a naive and sweet girl who cares a lot for her cousin Blade. After Blade left the house and her parents died, Shiori's personality changed completely, she started to hate people and became resentful of them especially her family who she views as the people who drove Blade away from her. It was also due to this that Shiori decides to become a sister, family and lover to Blade, giving birth to her obsession towards Blade.
When she was taken in by her grandfather she regained some of her lost humanity and former personality.
