Shiori is a young woman with fair skin complexion, dark purple hair and dark brown eyes (both black in the manga). Her hair is styled in a hime cut, a hairstyle common in Japan. She wears correction lenses, in the form of red-framed glasses.
She is usually seen wearing a long-sleeved purple cardigan with black stripes around the edges and a number on the left chest, along with a white dress shirt, a tan skirt, dark purple kneehigh socks, and dark blue loafers. When she was still part of Kazama unit, she was seen wearing a hoodie over a white shirt.
When in Operator duty, she wears the default Border uniform.
Shiori is a very playful and carefree person, as shown throughout her appearances in the manga. She also seems to be a nerd and enjoys analyzing things. She is shown to be very childish, inviting Osamu simply because that'd increase the number of people who wear glasses on Tamakoma Branch, and crying when Jin interrupted her when deciding Chika's position.
Usami likes pampering Chika, and always helps her during Rank Battles.
They are cousins. They seem to have a really good relationship, as Yoneya is seen taking care of Yōtarō on her Usami's behalf.
Usami maintains good relations with her former unit, though she is annoyed by Kikuchihara's blunt nature.
