Nao Shimura ( () (むら) (なお) Shimura Nao?) was the wife of Kotaro Shimura and was the mother of their two children, Tenko and Hana Shimura. Not much is known about her currently, except that she died when her son’s Quirk went out of control.[1][2]

Appearance

Nao is a woman that is in her early thirties that is always seen with a worried expression on her face. Her bangs are parted in the middle from her face and light brown hair in uneven waves that grow to her shoulders in which Tomura inherited his hair from her.

She has numerous clothes in Tomura’s flashbacks ranging from a black shirt with jeans to a corduroys skirt.


Personality

Nao appeared as a kindly woman who constantly worries about her family. She tries to smooth over her family's problems caused by her husband's hatred towards heroes seen when she attempts to stop her husband from punishing her son.

She cared about her children greatly but couldn’t stand up to her husband due to knowing why he hated heroes. Nao also couldn’t completely console her son after the abuse he suffered from the hands of his father.

She wasn’t afraid to stand up to her husband if he was going too far in his abusive treatment of his children, which is seen when she confronted her husband for what he did to Tomura said if he was going to resort to violence, she wasn’t going to follow his rules.

Unfortunately, despite how much she loved her children, it wasn’t enough to calm her son down and was still killed when her son’s Quirk awakened and went out of control.

History

Trivia

  • Nao's name is written with the kanji (直) meaning "repair". This is most likely a reference to her wanting to “repair” her family’s problems caused by her husband's hatred of heroes.
