“P-Please stop it! I-I'm unsuited for combat!”
He is a very short teenage student with a young feminine appearance that often makes him mistaken for a young boy or even girl. He has long brown hair and purple-and-pink-colored eyes. He also has a yellow hair clipping with a wing on the right side of his head.
Shikanosuke is a beginner first-year student in the Gosha Academy who is the cousin is Rin Uehara, and a lightning-style jutsu user. Although it might seem like a flashy ninja art at first glance, it's different from a lightning-style jutsu that manipulates lightning. Since it's a ninja art that manipulates the small amount of electricity present in all life forms, its power amounts to nothing more than the static electricity in the winter season. Therefore, he is ridiculed as only being suited for duties that might require electrical work, as lightning-style jutsu users have an inherent resistance to electricity, to the point where he was called the "electric janitor". Even he himself has come to admit that his ninja art is one that isn't suited for battle.
Small enough to be mistaken for a grade-schooler, his fighting strength is among the lowest tier of Taimanin, but he holds within him a strong sense of justice that he would rather trade his life for than abandon. While running away screaming, that is.

Kaiju World War: Part 2 Edit
Shikanosuke is a timid and shy individual who comes off more or less a very reluctant fighter and dislikes battling, often fearing for his life, not helping his extremely amateurish skills as a Taimanin. He is often called a coward because of this. Nevertheless, he wants to fight for justice and use the best of his abilities to help anyone in the way he could, though at times he is inadequate in combat.
