Soujuurou Shizuki (静希草十郎, Shizuki Sōjūrō?) is one of the three main protagonists in Mahoutsukai no Yoru.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

Soujuurou Shizuki is a young man from a rural location, having lived deep in the mountains without even electricity. He has been attacked by wild dogs in the time when he lived in the mountains. There are traces of the bite wound in the left arm.

He moves into Misaki Town and attends to Misaki high school, Group C.

AppearanceEdit

He appears to be a Herbivore men, but he appears to be pretty athletic without his clothes. He has bite scars around his left arm and he has scars around his neck to which he always covers them with bandages. Aoko later provides a collar for him to wear.

PersonalityEdit

Soujuurou is a person of few words, but possesses a warm personality in contrast to Aoko and Alice. He is the kind of person that most people can grow accustomed to. He is a stable person who tends to keep quiet, even if he really believes in something. While not a special person, he isn't a normal person either. While generally a happy person, he can display a cold nature embodying "A good man on the surface, but in reality..."

He doesn't possess a "self" when he first arrives in the city, and he cannot even qualify as a human. Normal humans will have subjective thought mixed into whatever they see, and they will choose what to see and what not to see. He will not nor knows how to judge the value of something or the basis of whether it is good or evil. He is forced to slowly adjust to human society as time passes. Alice wishes for his core way of thinking to never change, while Aoko thinks that the way he keeps changing is dangerous.[1] In a way, it is as if he is in a time slip state. He is impressed by the city, but slowly adjusting into ordinary high school life.

RoleEdit

Mahoutsukai no YoruEdit

Soujuurou winds up living at the Kuonji mansion as well, despite Alice's attempts to drive him away by ignoring him, and Alice develops uncertain feelings toward him.

AbilitiesEdit

Soujuurou is the strongest TYPE-MOON protagonist when he first arrives from the mountains, but he gradually becomes weaker as he gets used to civilization and settles down as an "individual."[2]

His physical ability is high, but he could not swim because he has no experience.

He received combat training when he lived in the mountains.

DevelopmentEdit

In the unpublished version of the novel, Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi portrayed Soujuurou as a wild mannered, 180cm tall athletic boy. Souichirou Kuzuki in Fate/stay night has inherited his design.

Hirokazu Koyama claims that in the original script, Soujuurou wasn't such an uncivilized yet masculine character, but he was more like Mikiya Kokutou from Kara no Kyoukai. This is also related to his misunderstanding to Takeuchi's blueprint. As a result, his design was not easily settled. In the final product, Koyama redesigned Soujuurou because he had confidence with the thought "I think my first impression of Soujuro will work," and convinced others to go with his view.
