Disclaimer: Shijima belongs to Masashi Kishimoto
Some info: Shijima is not an OC. She's a main character of one of the post chapter 699 novels, Gaara Hiden. All we know about her appearance is that she has an artificial Sharingan from being one of Orochimaru's test subjects, she wears glasses to seal her ocular dojutsu, she's apparently "beautiful" and reminds Gaara of a sharp, crescent moon. The women of the Houki clan wear make up and can't have their bare faces shown to any man but the one she will marry, so I gave Shijima lipstick. She's said to be around Temari's age (I personally imagine her to be two years older than Gaara). Apparently she looks a lot like her younger sister Hakuto, who is said to have inky black hair up to her shoulders; thus, I made Shijima's hair...Well...Inky and black lol. I tried to stick to whatever would remind me of a sharp crescent moon. Long hair didn't really do that for me. I wanted her to have a somewhat strict look. Her personality seems to be determined and she deeply loves her little sister from what I could gather from the novel. We know that she has wind release chakra nature but we don't know if there's anything else. We also know that her artificial Sharingan allows her to use genjutsu, one of her abilities being that she can place people caught in her jutsu under immense pain, rendering them either unable to use chakra or have an incredibly difficult time doing so.
Oh and uh...Of course I had to write fanfic. Yeah, I'm back at it (for now). Just find me on fanfiction.net as Fangie-Chan, the same name I have on here.
If any long time watchers of mine are wondering, yes, I'm still alive, just busy with life haha.
OH AND ONE MORE THING. I'm incredibly lazy and drew this over a picture of Karin. Don't kill me.
