Ibara Shiozaki personality

Ibara displaying her humble nature

Ibara is a very modest and courteous person who makes her humility clear after Present Mic calls her an assassin. Although graceful and soft-spoken, she is not afraid to make her pure intentions known.

She showed her gratitude after receiving a second chance to participate in the U.A. Sports Festival and made her objective to spread good across the world apparent before her fight with Denki.[3] Ibara also prefers to be fair and square, as she disagreed with Neito's plan to throw the Obstacle Course and placed fourth instead.[4]



Vines (ツル Tsuru?): Ibara's Quirk allows her to grow vines on her head which she can extend, attack, and grab with.
