Kamui Woods to the Giant Villain in "Izuku Midoriya: Origin"

Shinji Nishiya (西 (にし) () (しん) () Nishiya Shinji?),[1] also known by his hero name, Kamui Woods (シンリンカムイ Shinrin Kamui?), is the No. 7 Pro Hero and member of The Lurkers.

Appearance

Shinji is a relatively short but rather muscular man, as his face is unknown since he has only been shown while he is using his Quirk. His Hero Costume is a dark blue bodysuit that includes a wooden belt, wooden knee pads, and wooden shoes. A small bundle of roses hangs from the left side of his belt.

After he officially became the No. 7 Pro Hero, his costume was slightly modified, and he now has two wooden rings hanging on his shoulders, which have stumps and branches protruding from them.

Personality

Shinji is a very serious and focused person when it comes to being a hero in his hero duties; however, he easily feels down when someone takes his glory or credit. At the same time, he also appears to be rather emotional, as when he was invited by Edgeshot to be part of The Lurkers, he cried in happiness for two hours.[4]

Abilities

Overall Abilities: Shinji has grown to be an incredibly strong hero during his career as a hero, earning him the spot at the No. 7 ranked hero on the JP Billboard Charts. His skills have led some to believe that he will be a standout hero of the next generation.

Quirk

Arbor ( (じゅ) (もく) Jumoku?): Shinji's Quirk allows him to enlarge and control his wooden body parts into strong tree branches. These branches are excellent for binding. Being made of wood, this Quirk has a disadvantage against fire.

Super Moves

  • Lacquered Chain Prison ( (せん) (せい) (ひつ) (ばく) ウルシ () (ろう) Sensei Hitsubaku Urushi Sarō?): Shinji shoots out the wood from one of his arms and surrounds the enemy with it to immobilize them. This move is first used against an unnamed enemy.
