Syura was a young man with tan skin, green eyes (golden in the anime) and white hair (pale lilac in the anime). He had a noticeable X-shaped scar on his face and a crown-like headgear similar to his father's. He wore a white skintight shirt that revealed his stomach and white pants. In his first appearance, he had a hooded jacked which obscured his figure, and face.
Syura was a cruel and sadistic man who enjoyed harassing civilians and killing them as he pleased, while using women for sex toys, and was seen to be quite abusive with them. He had a tendency to lick his lips whenever picking up a woman, as seen with Kurome. He also enjoyed torturing his enemies as a means to make them spill out information, as seen with Lubbock.
He behaved very much like a spoiled brat, his status as the son of the Prime Minister giving him an over-inflated sense of self-entitlement. As such, he felt entitled to the right to do as he pleased, and was quick to anger when things didn't go his way, becoming violent whenever someone got in his way. He was also extremely concerned with pleasing his father and would become emotionally unstable whenever he felt in danger of losing his approval.
Shortly after the formation of the Jaegers, Syura returned to the Capital after traveling for a while. Unbeknownst to the authorities, he unleashed a horde of new Danger Beasts, created by Dr. Stylish, resulting in them terrorizing peaceful villages around the Capital.
Syura observed the battle between the new Danger Beasts and Seryu and noted to himself that the Jaegers were very powerful, but not as strong as the group he intended to put together, decided to let them "play" with his "toys" in the meantime.
Later, he found Esdeath and Tatsumi together at the summit of Mt. Fake, and after being noticed while hiding, he noted that it was too early to let the Prime Minister know about his return. Then he used his Teigu, Shambhala, to teleport them to a remote island in the far south, where they were attacked by a giant Danger Beast very similar to Dr. Stylish's ultimate form.
After the mission to kill Bolic concluded, Syura stayed in the Imperial Palace, seated on a throne in his private room, surrounded by his group. He told them that the time has come and that the Empire will now be their "toy".
Syura then returned to the Empire revealing he was on a mission given by his father to find "people with useful talents". Syura decided to give a demonstration of the people he found by making them slaughter the death row prisoners and introducing them to his father.
Shortly after that, Syura and his newly formed Wild Hunt are ordered to investigate the Umatora Theater in the Capital as there is a play that criticizes the Empire. The producer denied the accusation and tried to bribe Syura but he declined the money in a heartbeat declaring the death sentence on them, quickly leading to the entire theater troupe being raped and killed by Wild Hunt. After this devilish act, Syura joyfully told his father how much of a kick he was getting from leading Wild Hunt, while also telling him that he had made preparations to take out Night Raid. Along with his father, he watched the Great General Budo arrive.
Syura, along with his father and other advisers of the Emperor, discussed the danger that the revolutionary army poses to the Empire before being interrupted by the arrival of the great General Budo. Syura noted that the reasons that his father can remain calm when he's facing the revolutionary army was because of the "ultimate Teigu" that has been passed down the imperial bloodline and the presence of Budo and his imperial guards.
Syura later continues his investigation, further his evil deeds among those include the rape and murder of Bols' Family much to Wave dismay. Back inside the palace, Syura notices Wave talking with Kurome, gaining an interest in Kurome, Syura tries to make Kurome one of his "toys" but was stopped by Wave who is still enraged over Syura's deeds on his fallen friend's family. Syura and Wave almost started a battle inside the Palace but was stopped by Budo who instead tells them to finish it in a fist fight. Agreeing to the terms, Syura fights Wave in a fist fight, while initially having the advantage, Wave manages to adapt to Syura's fighting style and ultimately wins the fight.
After his lost, Syura was reprimanded by his father, angered over his lost to Wave and desperate to prove himself to his father, Syura switches his attention to Night Raid.
