Shizuka Gozen (静御前), usually called "Lady Shizuka", also known as "the Priestess of Tamayori", is one of the main protagonists of the Genji series. She later becomes a playable character in Genji: Days of the Blade as the only female member of the team. Like Musashibo Benkei, she has traveled with Minamoto Yoshitsune in both of his adventures.


Shizuka is quite tall, she has long, white hair with a silver brooch tied it up on her head, and a yellow-pink kimono with a red suit inside.

When dressing up as "Otohiko", Shizuka has her hair tied up. She wears a black ninja costume with a mask covering half of her face.


Shizuka may look helpless, but her beauty masks an unlimited amount of courage and loyalty to the gods and her friends. She is very respectful to those of higher rank or stronger than her in the Genji army often calling even Benkei "Lord" every time she addresses him. And, without hesitation, bowing to Lord Buson who she recognized even through the Heshi Leader, Taira Kagekiyo's body.
