A taciturn and quiet girl, always watching and evaluating her surroundings. She was built second in line to the Shiratsuyu-class, and had to take the mantle of 'Big Sister' due to the Nameship's fixation on being the name ship and 'Number One'. She is an expert in escort duty and asset protection, using her speed and agility to outmaneuver her foes, and the power of her Long Lance torpedoes to destroy them. She uses this power both against the ghoulish Abyssal Fleet, should it return, and other menaces to the peace of the seas she is sworn to protect. Being a destroyer means she has little armour and relies on her speed to evade harm. Her weapons aren't the most powerful on the sea, but any airborne craft will find she has a potent bite for a ship of her size. Due to her life and 'death', she is terrified of losing those she cares about beccause she couldn't save them. She is a melancholy soul who always speaks in a hushed tone, as if she's afraid she'll break apart by raising her voice.
Kanmusu: Shigure is a Kanmusu or Fleet Girl. This means she can equip and use special equipment that emulates the outfitting her former 'ship self' used. Cannons, torpedoes, AA guns and depth charges. She is also resistant to many physical ailments that a normal human would succumb to, being something like a ghost or revenant. She can also 'skate' on the surface of bodies of water as a method of travel and move at a pace allowing for combat maneuvers on bodies of water.
Fifth Strike Squadron: Consisting of the Destroyer Yuudachi, Light Cruiser Kuma and Battleship Yamashiro, this compact force works as a single entity in battle, focusing their fire on a single point. The three girls are fitted much like Shigure, with cannons, AA guns and Torpedoes, with the only difference being the caliber of the weapon in question. If they deploy alone, they would equal Shigure's PL each. They do not necessarily boost Shigure's own PL in battle.
Ocean Fit: A transformation into the full sized ship she once was, shifting the scale of her combat to a larger size, but limits her mobility to water only.
Melee Combat: A part of Shigure's combat equipment is a seemingly mundane combat knife, but this weapon is forged from Abyssal steel, and is stronger and sharper than a conventional blade. It's used for many tasks, and is only a last resort weapon in case all rigging-mounted gear are disabled. Shigure can also fire 'blank' cannon charges to boost the power of punches and strikes while using her Main Battery tonfa.
Ghosts of the Past<Trouble>: Even with many of her comrades returned to her side, Shigure is haunted by the fact she survived them all before, and could do so again. Should one of her companions come under threat, she will put herself, and her mission in jeopardy to protect them, regardless of the situation and any orders given. Shigure will go as far as sacrificing her life, or coming very close to it, to do so.
The night is dark<Significant>: Due to how she lost many of her companions, Shigure has a severe aversion to darkness, clinging close to her companions and refusing to split off from them even under orders for fear of losing them, or losing herself, and if suddenly plunged into it, can lose her composure, such as opening fire blindly, fleeing in a hysterical panic or simply curling up into a sobbing ball to name a few. This is a form of Post Traumatic Stress.
Self Doubt<Minor>: Shigure often calls herself into question over important decisions, second guessing herself and through this, putting herself and her comrades in danger. She can overcome this in times of dire circumstance but it takes a great effort. She often hesitates, not trusting her gut reaction, overthinking things or picking the wrong side of Aggression or Caution.
