Jūzō is the 2nd son of the Shima family, his younger brothers include Kinzō and Renzō. As the second son, he has more responsibilities than his younger brothers. He is also an Upper Second Class Exorcist.
Jūzō is of average height, with short, spiky black hair. Like his brothers, his eyebrows tend to look frowning, even when he smiles. He greatly resembles a younger version of his father.
Jūzō is first introduced while fighting Mamushi over their families, and although at first he was advising Kinzō not to get into a fight with her, he subsequently got quite worked up about it, resulting in a physical confrontation. However, he seems to be more level headed and responsible than his younger brother Kinzō, and less laid back than Renzō. He is serious when it comes to his duties, and has showed concern about his childhood friend Mamushi, as well as taking care of his father. He has a lighthearted side and gets on well with his two youngest brothers. He is shown in flashbacks as a child carrying baby Renzō on his back while playing, and even now seems to be looking after him, offering to help him train.
Since the first son of the Shima family was killed in the Blue Night incident 16 years ago, Jūzō is the successor of the Shima family. He and Hōjō Mamushi are childhood friends and attended the Exorcist cram school together.
