Just like all the other Handmaidens, she wore priestess attire of white and red. Like Hisame and Minamo, she carries an impaling stake and mallet. The distinguish features of her appearance is her short hair and her bangs that conceal her forehead.
Unlike Hisame and Minamo, Shigure had a compassionate and sympathetic side, especially toward Amane. When she found out about Amane's plan to sneak Kaname into the shrine, she pleaded with Amane not to break the Kuze Code. After following orders from Yashuu Kuze to impale Amane, Shigure is the only Handmaiden to express any remorse at what she had to do.
