Shimano (シマノ, Shimano)[1] is one of Queen Oito's maids during their voyage in the Black Whale to the Dark Continent.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Shimano has long hair tightly tied back, an oval shaped head, and dresses in a standard maid's robe.[3]

PersonalityEdit

Shimano presents herself as a quiet and reserved lady, but also she's very observant and opinionated towards not only the other Royal Princes, but those she comes in contact with even for a brief moment.[4]

PlotEdit

Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

Shimano is among the four maids interrogated by Kurapika after the mysterious deaths of four bodyguards.[2] She claims she knows nothing about the Succession War between the Kakin princes.[3] After the bodyguard Sayird's murder of the other bodyguards and tries to attack Kurapika, the Kakin Army takes Sayird for questioning while the two other maids quit, leaving only Shimano and Sandra to serve Queen Oito and Prince Woble.[5]

Chap 365 - Shimano and Kurapika

Kurapika finds out Shimano connected him to Zhang Lei instead of Benjamin

When Vincent, one Prince Benjamin's Private Soldiers, kills Sandra, Shimano is the only remaining maid in the service of the Queen. She witnesses the fight between Vincent against Kurapika and Bill, and is shocked when Kurapika uses one of his chains on Oito. Shimano later answers a call from Benjamin, Zhang Lei, and Tubeppa Hui Guo Rou.[1] Despite Kurapika's order to answer the First Prince, Shimano directs the call to the Third Prince instead. She explains to Kurapika that she believes Benjamin to be a cold-hearted person who is not swayed by by any negotiations and would probably kill them all. While, in her opinion, though Zhang Lei might be generous, he would find it disrespectful to have him waiting. Lastly, she explains that Tubeppa would use his influence to defeat the higher ranking princes, while negotiating amnesty for the lower princes; but Tubeppa would not answer the phone himself. Kurapika asks for her advice about Babimyna, Vincent's substitute, and Shimano suggests that they should let him it. Kurapika thanks Shimano for the advice and asks for her help in the future, to which she accepts.[4]

Later, Shimano helps the queen and her bodyguards locate a cockroach. Once they find it, Queen Oito entrusts Woble to Shimano. While the Queen pretends she is exhausted, though she is actually manipulating the cockroach to spy into Prince Marayam's room.[6] Shimano continues to stay by Woble's side even after the Queen's outburst about the death of Prince Momoze.[7]
