Shouko is a youngling who joined the military after the Neuroi invasion, but her skills are top-class even in the Fuso Navy and she has accomplished the shot-down of countless Neuroi.
Her sharp air battle skills - that are just like a honed Fuso sword - and tactics of directly rushing towards the enemy almost without looking back caused those who saw her to feel something reckless in them. Sensing danger in that fighting style, Flight Lieutenant Karibuchi thought that a change of environments would allow her to keep some composure and recommended Shouko to the 508th Joint Fighter Wing.
After being assigned to the 508th JFW, Shouko now carries out two-man cell rotte tactics. Furthermore, as she assumed the duties of protecting her leading fighter as a wingman, her reckless behavior has all but disappeared.
- She is based on Sugita Shouichi (杉田庄一).
