When you have to save someone, they're usually in a scary situation. A true hero saves not only their lives, but also their hearts... 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 ( () (むら) () () 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 is described as a beautiful woman with a tough looking demeanor. She was a fairly tall woman of slender yet voluptuous frame. At the same time, she sported a well-built frame, as befitting a One For All user. She was fair-skinned with a mole below her right cheek and straight dark hair. She had short bangs over her forehead while the rest of her hair just below her shoulders. She would style it in a partial bun in the back of her head with the rest hung free to frame the sides of her face.

Her Hero costume consisted of a dark sleeveless bodysuit with a high collar, yellow gloves and white boots, a belt with an angular gold buckle, and a white cape.[3]

Personality

Nana Shimura

Nana's kind 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 great empathy and emotional resistance.[3]

Although she regarded Toshinori's desire to be a symbol of peace as somewhat of a crazy idea because Toshinori was Quirkless at the time, she nonetheless brought the matter up with her trusted friend Gran Torino.

Abilities
