Shihoko Nago is a female Burst Linker who was the Legion Master of Petit Paquette, which later merged with Nega Nebulus after the ISS Kit incident.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Shihoko has brown hair with two pigtails coming out of the back. She is usually seen wearing her school uniform, which has a Puritan design.
Shihoko describes herself as having a very "average" look.
Personality[edit | edit source]
In the real world, Shihoko is rather shy and indecisive, talking in a polite and serious tone. When asked to make decisions, she usually hesitates, unable to decide the choice that will yield the most benefit. Furthermore, she lacks self-confidence, thinking that her looks and performance are inferior to her friends Satomi Mito and Yume Yuruki.
However, while in the Accelerated World, Shihoko's personality changes drastically. Behaving the polar opposite of how she does in the real world, she acts and talks in a very prim and proper way, using very formal language and sentence structure. Although she knows that this change in personality occurs, she is unable to act in any other way within the Accelerated World.
Shihoko possesses a deep fear of being hated by others. In fact, her duel avatar, "Chocolate Puppeteer", was based off of this fear. The sweet, pleasant chocolate armor is the manifestation of Shihoko's desire to be liked.
Background[edit | edit source]
Shihoko was originally the Legion Master of the small Legion Petit Paquet with her two friends Satomi Mito (Mint Mitten) and Yume Yuruki (Plum Flipper). However, one day, her two friends were parasitized by ISS Kits at the hands of Magenta Scissor. After the legionnaires of Nega Nebulus helped save her two friends, Shihoko disbanded Petit Paquet and joined Nega Nebulus with her former Legion members.

Chocolate Puppeteer[edit | edit source]
Chocolate Puppeteer, as her name suggests, is an avatar covered by chocolate-colored armor. However, even though the avatar looks and tastes like chocolate, the armor itself is not actually chocolate. As such, it does not melt or break easily.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Chocolate Puppeteer's potential is largely based on her ability to create chocolate puppets.
- Cocoa Fountain - Chocolate Puppeteer creates a large puddle of chocolate proportional to the amount of her special-attack gauge she chooses to use. This "set-up" ability is the foundation for her other abilities.
- Puppet Make - Chocolate Puppeteer summons chocolate puppets from the puddle created by Cocoa Fountain. These puppets, which are fully under her control, have strong resistance to most blunt and cutting attacks.
