Shigure (シグレ, Shigure) is a supporting character in Suikoden V. Shigure is an investigator who was raised as an assassin by the covert group Nether Gate.

History

Shigure is a rough, plain-speaking young man who works as an investigator, along with Oboro and Sagiri, in the Oboro Detective Agency. Although he was an exceptionally lazy person, even by his own admission, he was also a skillful investigator well capable of operating in the shadows. Like Sagiri, Shigure had been previously trained from childhood to be an assassin for the covert group Nether Gate.

Following the dismantlement of Nether Gate, Shigure was taken in by Oboro. In comparison to Sagiri's smile, Shigure was trained to be expressionless and had an extremely neutral voice. However, his concern and desire to protect Sagiri would sometimes allow him to break through this conditioning, showing the gentle, watchful side to his personality. He wears his bangs specifically to cover his eyes.

He would join the Imperial City Recapture Army along with Oboro. He would often fight with Nakula, due to Shigure's protectiveness regarding Sagiri. His talents in espionage were also no match for Zerase, who somehow spotted him on repeated occasions, causing him to quit that particular job in frustration.

Although he became the primary investigator for the Oboro Detective Agency after the Sun Rune War with the absence of Oboro, his lazy attitude remains as steadfast as ever.
