"When you have to save someone, they're usually in a scary situation. A true hero saves not only their lives, but also their spirits... That's what I believe. So no matter how scary things get, give 'em a smile, as if to say, "I'm a-ok". The people in this world who can smile are always the strongest."

Nana Shimura to Toshinori Yagi in "One For All"


Nana Shimura (志村菜奈 Shimura Nana?)[1] was the seventh user of the One For All Quirk, All Might's mentor, and a close friend of Gran Torino.[2]

Appearance

Nana

Nana's appearance.

Nana was a well built woman, as befitting a One For All user. She had a mole below her right cheek, similar to her grandson[3], and straight dark hair that hung just below her shoulders[4] which she kept styled in a partial bun with the rest of her hair down along with two strands framing her face.

Her Hero costume consisted of a dark sleeveless bodysuit with a high collar, light-colored gloves, a belt with an angular buckle, and a light colored cape.[4]

Personality

Nana was a kind woman with a strong sense of justice. She believed that a true hero should smile no matter how grim the situation, since people who needed to be saved needed not only to have their lives protected but also their hearts, showing a great empathy and emotional resistence.[5]

History

Like most people, Nana born with a Quirk on her own.[6] While it was unknown how the two heroes met, she was a close friend with Gran Torino. At some point during her life, Nana was chosen to inherit One For All from the sixth user. She eventually met Toshinori, becoming his mentor as a hero despite he was originally quirkless, and entrusted him with her Quirk.

At one point of her life, Nana married and had a son. Afterwards, her husband died as a result of heroics. To spare her son from the same fate, Nana left her son in the care of a foster family, telling Gran Torino and Toshinori to never come into contact with her son.[7]

Eventually, Nana was killed by All For One in a fight some time after passing along the ability[8], entrusting Toshinori's training to Gran Torino.[9]

Quirk and Abilities

One For All (ワン・フォー・オール Wan Fō Ōru?): Nana's Quirk grants the user the access of stockpiled power, which grants the user momentary superhuman strength at destructive levels, increased agility and superhuman speed for several uses.

Unknown Quirk: Before inheriting One For All, Nana already possessed another (unknown) Quirk.
