Nishiki looks very similar to her sisters. She has light long hair in a distinctive style having a hime-cut with an extra-long bang in the middle of her head. Her eyes resemble the sharp stare of a snake. She has a tattoo going up the left side of her face. She has only been seen with traditional Japanese clothing.
Nishiki has been shown to be a very haughty and derisive person, at least in regards to members of the Shima family. She and Ao show great deference to their elder sister.
Impure King Revival arc
Nishiki first appears with her sisters, Mamushi and Ao, while in the middle of an argument with Juzo Shima and Kinzou Shima. They are arguing over who's at fault for the infiltration of the shinbu. After multiple insults from both sides, Juzo swings his K'rik at Mamushi, and she retaliates by summoning Naga. Other branch members step in to stop the fight including Ryuji.
It is later revealed in the discussion about who attempted to steal the Right Eye of the Impure King, that Nishiki and Ao were on guard when Tatsuma Suguro arrived, only to be ushered out when the seal around the eye was disturbed.
After the meeting, Mamushi confirms that her sisters believe her version of the story concerning the events at the Shinbu.
