Shu is one of the Nanto Rokusei Ken, the successor of Nanto Hakuro Ken. He is the Star of Benevolence, destined to serve and protect the next generation. Formerly the second-in-command to Souther and his best friend, when he was younger, he was the last opponent a young Kenshiro faced in a Nanto tournament. Though he easily dispatched Kenshiro, he refused to kill him when ordered by Souther, instead giving up his eyesight for the sake of the potential he saw in Kenshiro. After the nuclear war, when Souther went about conquering and kidnapping children to build the Holy Cross Mausoleum, Shu turned against his old friend to fight for the future of the children he protected.
