Shiro is one of the main protagonists from Deadman Wonderland. A mysterious but cheery albino girl, Shiro becomes Ganta's closest friend in the prison. A bit of an airhead with a child-like mind and love for eating bread and candy. Shiro is actually the childhood friend of Ganta Igarashi and Hagire Rinichirō's adopted daughter. She is actually the Wretched Egg responsible for killing Ganta's friends, the upbeat Shiro being one side of her personality. Her antics as the Wretched Egg in her and Ganta's youth traumatized Ganta into forgetting she ever existed. Along with Sorae Igarashi, Hagire experimented on her in order to heighten a person's immune system, creating the very first Deadman by accident, along with her second personality, the Wretched Egg in order to cope with her suffering.
The Wretched Egg (レチッド エグ, Rechiddo Egu) was Shiro's second personality. She is the original Deadman and is also known as the Red Man (赤い男, Akai Otoko), a name coined by Ganta Igarashi during the Nagano School Massacre. She is a major antagonist of the series and is the one that set major plots in the story into motion.

Weaknesses: Has dual personalities. The Mother Goose System restricts her powers and forces her back into the tamer "Shiro" personality, her earthquakes requires too much energy and might kill her when used.
Branch of Sin: Unknown Branch: As the Wretched Egg, her powers are unmatched even by the strongest of opponents while her powers were restrained by the Mother Goose System. She has been shown to massacre dozens of people by creating a whip of blood that can destroy parts of the body instantly. Her Branch of Sin also resembles a hurricane. While unrestrained, she was powerful enough to cause the Great Tokyo Earthquake that submerged a large area of Tokyo. It's possible her power can spread infinitely and be expressed in multiple forms as evidenced by her lifting and slamming down a cargo ship prow first effortlessly after helping Ganta out of the Walfisch.
- Regeneration: The Wretched Egg has the power to regenerate completely in a very short amount of time. She has displayed this by healing several wounds inflicted by Ganta's Ganta Gun almost immediately.
- Manifestation of the Red Crystal: The Wretched Egg can also implant a Red Crystal that houses the Nameless Worm into someone by shooting it in his/her chest. She has only done this once, to Ganta in the Nagano school massacre. The crystal was provided to Shiro by Sorae Igarashi.
- Flight: It is unknown if this is because of her Branch of Sin, but the Wretched Egg has the ability to float in mid-air. With her ability to freely control how her blood outside of her body, her ability to fly may simply be lifting and manipulating her blood while its still inside her.
Note: Not to be confused with the similarly-named protagonist of Fate/Stay Night, the similarly-named character from Kamen Rider Ryuki or the similarly - named Inazuma Eleven character.
