Shinku has light, blonde hair, kept in two twin tails tied at the back of her head, and blue eyes. She wears a red gown with a matching shawl and bonnet as accessories. Her bonnet is fastened with a black ribbon, which is tied into a bow at her neck and held in place with a red rose brooch.
Shinku seems to be quite a spoiled, cold, unappreciative, royal queen-like character, although she has a strong sense of nobility and cares deeply for her sisters and Jun.She seems to love nothing more than consistently abusing her master, Jun Sakurada, be it by slapping (sometimes with her ponytails), kicking, or hitting him when he doesn't comply with her order or touches her, as she treats him as her servant. Her main goal in life is to win the Alice Game and become Alice. Her motto is originally, "To live is to fight." Over time, with Jun's guidance, she abandons this idea and only fights to protect others.
Regardless of her regal, cool-hearted personality, she is also portrayed to be a bit childish, whenever watching her favorite television program, "Detective Kun-Kun", she is often shown to believe the episode's happenings to be true. For example, when a villain was sneaking up behind Kun-Kun in one episode, Shinku screams for him to get out of the way. She also seems to be a hardcore fan, once even sending away for a detective kit given away in a contest. Shinku has a fear of cats due to one of her previous master's pet feline, which came terribly close to swallowing her wind-up key.
