Powers & Abilities Edit
Shura is a powerful Exorcist, noted to be an excellent wielder of the sword. She fights using Kirigakure Ryū - Makengi (Hidden Mist Style - Demon Blade Technique). As she was chosen to be the apprentice of Father Shirō Fujimoto when she was child, it can be assumed that she had a great deal of potential already back then. Shura keeps a Demon sword in a symbol above her chest that she can summon when she says, "Devour the Seven Princesses, slay the Serpent."
Miscellaneous SkillsEditShura has some talent in sealing, as she was able to seal Rin's Demon stage through chanting sutras. Additionally, she is able to seal both Rin's Komaken and her own blade in her abdomen and chest, respectively. Likewise, she can also use high-level barrier techniques in conjunction with her familiar that could prevent one of the Demon Kings, Amaimon, from breaching it.
Dabō (Serpent Fang)EditDabō (lit. Serpent Fang): Shura launch projectiles made of air slices at the opponent.
Gara Gara (Absolute Emptiness)EditGara Gara (lit. Absolute Emptiness): This technique causes the enemy to lose it's Demonic power, as used against Rin in the Great Cell. When the snakes pass over the enemy, the enemy loses its Demonic power and traits like regeneration.
Kirigakure Ryū-Makengi - HebiransuEditHebiransu (lit. Snake Lance): This technique transforms Shura's Demon sword into a longer form with a wavy edge, much like the curves of a snake. In addition, the area near the tip of the blade gains an eye. This technique requires blood to be spread along the blade of the sword.
Familiar spiritEditShura was seen to be able to summon a familiar that resembled a snake. It can apparently locate people, as he was able to find Michelle Neuhaus in Shiemi's secret garden. Shura gave a seal that glows red when near the familiar to Rin when they are trying to find Michelle. Another Snake familiar spirit was shown in the manga, instead it had heart markings and was capable of speech. It was used in the Kyoto Arc to assist Yukio Okumura and the Exorcists in the tracking of Saburōta Tōdō and the Left Eye of the Impure King.
Shura is capable of suppressing Demons effectively by chanting mantras such as the 'Rokuji Myouou' which she uses to calm down Rin when he gets enraged during the Impure King incident.
