Soujuurou Shizuki is a young man from a rural location, having lived deep in the mountains without even electricity. He was raised and trained by the same organization as Souichirou Kuzuki. He once has been attacked by wild dogs during the time he lived in the mountains. There are traces of scars from bite wounds on the left arm.
He moves into Misaki Town and attends Misaki high school, Group C.
He appears to be a Herbivore men, but he appears to be pretty athletic without his clothes. He has bite scars around his left arm and his neck, which he always covers with bandages. Aoko later provides a special collar for him to wear.
Soujuurou is a person of few words, but possesses a warm personality in contrast to Aoko and Alice. He is the kind of person that most people can grow accustomed to. He is a stable and composed guy who tends to keep quiet, even if he really believes in something. While not a special person, he is not entirely "normal" either. He is considered to be absolutely harmless by other characters, and Yuika Suse cannot feel his presence either, however he can display a cold and even violent nature in rare cases, especially when his or someone else's life is in danger, embodying "A good man on the surface, but in reality...", though Aoko points out that anger does not suit him at all.
He doesn't possess a "self" when he first arrives in the city, and he cannot even qualify as a human. Normal humans will have subjective thought mixed into whatever they see, and they will choose what to see and what not to see. He will not nor knows how to judge the value of something or the basis of whether it is good or evil. He is forced to slowly adjust to human society as time passes. Alice wishes for his core way of thinking to never change, while Aoko thinks that the way he keeps changing is dangerous. In a way, it is as if he is in a time slip state. He is impressed by the city, but slowly adjusting into ordinary high school life.
His attitude to Magecraft is quite special. To his eyes, seeing someone casting a spell is similar to "seeing someone making a phone call or a car moving". Generally speaking, at first he does not feel the difference between magecraft and regular technology.
Mahou Tsukai no YoruEdit
Soujuurou winds up living at the Kuonji mansion as well, despite Alice's attempts to drive him away by ignoring him, and Alice develops uncertain feelings toward him.
Soujuurou is the strongest TYPE-MOON protagonist when he first arrives from the mountains, but he gradually becomes weaker as he gets used to civilization and settles down as an "individual."
His physical ability is high, but he could not swim because he has no experience.
He received combat training when he lived in the mountains. The same kind as Souichirou Kuzuki.
In the unpublished version of the novel, Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi portrayed Soujuurou as a wild mannered, 180cm tall athletic boy. Souichirou Kuzuki in Fate/stay night has inherited his design.
Hirokazu Koyama claims that in the original script, Soujuurou wasn't such an uncivilized yet masculine character, but he was more like Mikiya Kokutou from Kara no Kyoukai. This is also related to his misunderstanding to Takeuchi's blueprint. As a result, his design was not easily settled. In the final product, Koyama redesigned Soujuurou because he had confidence with the thought "I think my first impression of Soujuro will work," and convinced others to go with his view.
- In the Type-Moon's 10th Anniversary Character Poll, Soujuurou was ranked 45th.

- ↑ 4Gamer Interview with Mahoutsukai no Yoru Staff - "For example, when Soujuro first arrived from the mountains in Chapter 1, he was stronger than any other TYPE-MOON protagonist. As he got used to civilization, and settled down as an "individual," he gradually became weaker."
