Shiki Nanaya (七夜詩希, Nanaya Shiki?) is a major character in Hana no Miyako. She is Miyako Arima's closest friend and classmate. She has a split personality named SHIKI Nanaya (七夜死忌, Nanaya Shiki?).



Aside of the fact that Shiki grew up in Misaki Town and is younger mentally than she is physically due to her dissociative identity disorder, nothing much is known about Shiki's history.

SHIKI is stated by one character to be one-and-the-same as Miyako's mentor, Shiki Nanaya, somehow transplanted into Shiki's mind, but other things, such as the way they spell their name, indicate they may in fact be separate entities.


Shiki looks a fairly normal person at first brush, aside of her somewhat unusual orange hair, which is more typical of delinquents than someone like her.


Shiki is bubbly and cheerful most of the time, although it can also be surprisingly easy to upset her. She is a loyal friend, and can be relied upon to make sacrifices for her friends' sake.

She is somewhat cowardly and has little in the way of effective combat skills despite practising Aikido, so she tends to be quick to capitulate when threatened or in an otherwise scary situation.

She is quick to deny having any attraction to Miyako, although few, if any, believe her.

She is mentioned to be somewhat scatterbrained and easy to not notice.

Shiki enjoys making tea, and it is her main method of calming her nerves.

Shiki is completely unaware of the existence of her second personality.

SHIKI is a silent guardian who only takes control when Shiki is in danger, or thinks she is. As soon as SHIKI is active, the first things she does is attack whoever or whatever is threatening Shiki, only rarely giving them a chance to stop first. As soon as the danger is gone, SHIKI falls dormant once more.
