Appearance[edit | edit source]
Shuro is an Eastern man with long black hair tied back in a ponytail, fair skin, and black eyes. He is shorter than Laios but taller than Marcille. When he appears again in the story, he appears more gaunt with sunken eyes and an unshaven face.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Ordinarily, Shuro is a reserved man who doesn't often make demands of others. He has trouble expressing his true opinions to other people, instead relying on subtle social cues to imply what he feels. If the other party doesn't understand it, he tends to go along with what they say instead of push the issue.
He seems to be impulsive under pressure, making snap decisions such as rescuing Falin with only him and his retainers, leaving his old party behind on short notice.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Shuro is in love with Falin and dives into the dungeon with his own party in order to save her. It is implied the feelings he has might be reciprocated from a flashback of his, when Laios had interrupted what was presumably an intimate moment between the two of them.
He has always been very frustrated with Laios' inability to read the mood. He was secretly jealous of him, however.
Retainers[edit | edit source]
In general, Shuro has a distant relationship with the retainers, as they are all his father's retainers.
Of the retainers, Maizuru has the closest relationship to Shuro, likely due to her being around during his childhood.

History[edit | edit source]
His father's name is Toshitsugu Nakamoto (半本 俊継, Nakamoto Toshitsugu) and his grandfather's name is Tsuguyoshi Nakamoto (半本 継義, Nakamoto Tsuguyoshi). His family is likely of some noble lineage, as he has five retainers at his call. One of them, Maizuru, looked after him since he was a child. She noted that he was always reserved and never ate much, but ate plenty of whatever she made for him.
Shuro arrived to The Island in order to train as a warrior. He was largely uninterested in monetary rewards or danger because of this.
Sometime after joining the Thorden siblings' party, Shuro fell in love with Falin when he woke one night and saw her enthralled instead of disgusted by a caterpillar on her finger, after which he proposed to her. She told him she needed time to think about it however, and unfortunately was eaten by the dragon before she could give an answer.
Once they returned to the surface, Shuro left the party so he could rescue Falin with his retainers. He spent almost no time eating or resting during their descent through the dungeon.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It is implied that the name Shuro was a result of the Thorden party mispronouncing his real name Toshiro.
