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]


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.




  • 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.
