Shiho (シホ, Shiho) is a kunoichi from Konohagakure who works in the Konoha Cryptanalysis Team.

Personality []

Shiho is an upbeat, cheerful girl who appears to be attracted to Shikamaru Nara. When Shikamaru told her he would return to the Cryptology office when he learned anything new, Shiho refused an offer to go home from her boss. Instead, she fixed herself up in a mirror, intending to see Shikamaru again when he returned. Shiho also blushed when Shikamaru accepted her offer of accompanying him back to Tsunade's office. The side text on chapter 407's cover page, which Shiho appeared on, mentioned compared to how excited and nervous she gets around Shikamaru, decoding messages is no problem.

Appearance []

Shiho has light blonde hair tied in a loose ponytail with occasional strands sticking out. Her eyes are obscured with her swirl-tinted glasses. She wears a white lab coat over her red dress and puts on her forehead protector backwards, as a sash around her waist.

Abilities []

Shiho is level-headed and, despite being young, is quite competent as a decoder. She helped both Shikamaru and Naruto Uzumaki in code-breaking, and was able to figure out Jiraiya's code based on the information she was given. She also appears to be quite intelligent, offering sound advice when Shikamaru and Sakura discussed the meaning of Jiraiya's message. Considering she's of Chunin rank, she must have some type of skills.

Pain's Assault []

Shiho was first shown trying to help Shikamaru decode Jiraiya's message about Pain. She informed Shikamaru that they couldn't decipher the code without a key, likely known by someone Jiraiya was close to. Once the code was cracked, she accompanied Shikamaru to Tsunade's office, and later tried to help Shikamaru and Sakura determine the message's meaning. She was with Shikamaru and his father when Konoha was destroyed, and survived the blast. In the anime, it was revealed that Shikamaru broke his leg trying to protect her.
