|Experienced combatant; prologue protagonist|
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Shizuka uses a short female avatar. She has long, straight black hair, pale skin, brown eyes and a prominent scar across her nose. She has a pair of the standard round Spheromancer ear covers, connected with a metal headband and a larger band behind her head. She typically wears a black layered tunic with red trim, and matching shorts, socks, shoes, armbands and gloves. She also has a metal belt, shoulderguards and vambraces, which have a large loop extending from them.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Shizuka is a very decisive and no-nonsense person, who wastes no time tackling a problem head-on, and isn't afraid to deal harshly with those who get in her way. She is stubborn, and unlikely to be dissuaded from a course of action once she has decided on it. She has trouble accepting things that she cannot change.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Shizuka cares greatly for her brother Satoshi, and is willing to go to great lengths to rescue him from what she believes is forced labor. She refuses to accept that he is essentially sacrificing himself for her freedom, and is very distraught when he dies.
Shizuka knows Satoshi's Captor, and generally treats him with contempt, ignoring his attempts to explain that Satoshi is there willingly, and generally criticizing his (admittedly ineffective) attempts to stop her from interfering.
There is a definite connection between Shizuka and Lea. Although the two have not interacted, both are short, female avatars of the rare Spheromancer class, with similar appearance including identical facial scars and the same eyes color.
Role in CrossCode[edit | edit source]
Shizuka is the playable character during the Prologue. She seeks out her brother Satoshi in the Old Hideout in an attempt to rescue him, despite the best efforts of Satoshi's Captor. On finding him, she learns that Satoshi willingly agreed to perform a final task in exchange for her freedom, despite his failing health. She is horrified as Satoshi completes the task, then collapses and dies in front of her.
