Shiori is a short petite girl with short bob cut hair and a pretty face. She is usually seen wearing the uniform of the Magic Division.
Shiori has a sweet and innocent personality, she always tried to help her friends with all kinds of jobs. She likes her work at the Student Council but she usually overworks herself, later in the fight with Kazuki it is revealed that she actually fully suppressed the fact that her parents abused her in her childhood which led to the birth of Kaori.
Kaori was trained to be a ruthless killer and spy and was completely the opposite. She became the perfect sleeper agent because no one on campus knew she existed, not even her alter ego. After the truth came to light she was taken away for treatment and therapy and the Kaori personality was successfully removed.
Her parents were sleeper agents for China who expertly manipulated her through years of abuse. When Shiori repressed this abuse it created an alter ego named Kaori, Kaori thus was trained to be a ruthless killer and spy, the ultimate sleeper agent able to seize control whenever she needed to without her alter ego ever realizing what was going on.
She enrolled in the Magic Division of the National Knight Academy just recently. She was assaulted by Hayashi Shizuka and brainwashed as well as given Divine Protection that allowed her to regenerate magic power. It was due to this brainwashing that she became a candidate for Chief Student Council President, facing Oguma Tokaku in the seventh match of the first round of the Election Tournament. Despite having a team made up of first years they made it all the way to the semi-finals before losing to the delinquent team. It was impressive enough to garner her 4th place in the election later. After her elimination she was among the 10 students who attacked Hayashizaki Kazuki and Hoshikaze Hikaru on their date in the park. He was able to free them from control and they were taken into custody by the Knight Order for investigation. But in the end Kazuki’s word wasn’t enough evidence to arrest Hayashi.
Volume 5 Edit
Prior to the finals a series of exhibition matches were held allowing the eliminated teams to show their skills again. In the end Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya and her Vice-President Hoshikaze Hikaru (who many had thought would end up being the strongest candidates) faced off for third place. Hikaru had never defeated her rival and that held true even in this team battle. The final match was held between Hayashizaki Kazuki and the team led by Mibu Akira, which had been infiltrated by foreign spies trying to assassinate him. Despite the danger Kazuki displayed incredible skill and won the tournament, making quite an impression. Over the following week the candidates campaigned and on the day of the election all 16 sat in front of the student body waiting for the official tally. In the end Kazuki won by a wide margin and delivered a speech focusing on unity between the two schools.
Shiori won the post of newspaper chairman. Amasaki Miō noted she was the top of the Rank-B students and frankly at Rank-A level. They spent the day beginning to set up the newspaper office in the Witch's House. A few days later they were ready to publish the first newspaper issue. Shiori had overworked herself and was exhausted. Kazuki focused on introducing himself and the other Student Council members. He also outlined his policy plans and welcomed suggestions and comments. He also included information on how each school operated. When he contacted the Headmaster for final approval he was told that the Board Chairman and his entire family had vanished without a trace. That night news reports stated there had been a massive coordinated strike on all Knight Order posts in western Japan by a mysterious force including mysterious Illegal Magicians. All of western Japan had now been conquered by this unknown army and was now under a complete communications blackout.
The former Board Chairman appeared on TV announcing that western Japan was declaring independence and calling itself Yamato. All the politicians with secret ties to China appeared to be involved in this plot and had made an alliance with Loki. They were claiming legitimacy under the banner of the Japanese Mythology rather than the 72 Pillars, which people weren’t necessarily opposed to. By doing so they could maintain the facade that Yamato wasn’t just a puppet state of China. The Japanese Divas appeared to have fallen into a Wild God state after being ignored for so long. Their contractors had apparently all joined this movement too. Tsukahara Kazuha had avoided this fate by building her Diva a shrine and caring for him. A border wall was being constructed.
The Student Council met with two third years Kodzuki Kanon and Yagumo Akane who were already serving in the Knight Order. They were the Student Council members from last year. The students were called into a meeting. To respond to an urgent request for reinforcement at the border, Kazuki would be leading an elite force of students from both schools to reinforce them. Kazuki told them this was entirely voluntary but urged those with the courage to fight to volunteer. They wound up with a force of about 150 people. Shiori was among the volunteers because her parents lived in the west. The school had become the headquarters for the war effort. 10 more third years who escaped enemy territory gathered there. They were suddenly joined by the German Knights Beatrix Baumgard, Damian and Eleonora Abendroth too. They offered to cooperate as allies. Kazuki vouched for their strength. The Germans and the Student Council members were put in charge of squads under Kazuki’s command. They would meet up with the 200 Knights who escaped the west. But Kazuki insisted the seniors must rest first and prepared a meal. Shiori was a volunteer because her parents lived in the west.
They passed quite a few people on the road who seemed to be refugees. The buses were suddenly fired on and destroyed. The students were slow to react due to shock but finally came to their senses. It was a perfectly executed ambush. Kazuki too was slow to react when he realized that Hayashi had brainwashed those ten third years and ordered them to target their leaders, Kanon and himself. He only survived because Beatrix shielded him and fell deep into Magic Intoxication.Kazuha freed those girls and the enemy fled as the Knight Order arrived. Both sides took prisoners with them.
Kazuki and his close friends raided their classmates’ rooms and confiscated their cell phones. Given what happened that day, Kazuki suspected an information leak. There might even be a spy among the students. He told them they were conducting a surprise raid on the enemy. They were able to slip away because his friend was on guard duty and owed him a favor. Once they had escaped he explained his plan in more detail. He divided the students into squads based on their specialty. His friends’ unique skills allowed them to conceal their approach and take out the guards. They surrounded the enemy garrison and were able to destroy the building despite being detected and fired upon. With perfect coordination between the squadrons they attacked them from different angles and they fell into confusion. Kazuki made sure to capture Hayashi alive, though she later committed suicide in her cell. Kaya appeared on the back of a dragon and ordered the troops to retreat. She offered her praise to Kazuki for this bold action. Behind her, Maya was clearly terrified of heights. They returned to camp with captured prisoners and freed allies.
Upon questioning a Japanese Diva who had calmed down they were told all the shrines in western Japan had been destroyed. Those people said they were working for the government, to show their devotion to the 72 Pillars. But the 72 Pillars didn’t demand such things and it was easy to guess the deception. The Yamato guys had fooled them with that simple trick, to drive them into a Wild God state. They used that to turn them against Japan and the 72 Pillars and get them to support a new state based on Japanese Mythology. If they could calm them out of their Wild God state and explain the truth Yamato would fall apart.
