Shoichi (正 (しょう) 一 (いち) , Shōichi?) is a young boy saved by Tanjiro Kamado and Zenitsu Agatsuma when they approached him to help his older brother, Kiyoshi, escape from the Drum House. He also has a younger sister, Teruko.
Shoichi is a young boy of around 8-10, with black hair and light brown eyes. He wears a blue haori over a light green tunic.
While his personality is not fully elaborated on, one can assume he is a loyal brother as he decides to follow his older brother to rescue him after he was kidnapped by a demon. He has also shown a protective side while interacting with his younger sister. It can be surmised that Shoichi is braver than average, as he decides to follow the two Demon Slayers, Tanjiro and Zenitsu, into the Drum House. Even when separated from the others with Zenitsu, he shows more courage than the Thunder Breath user.
While not much is known about his personal history, Shoichi came from a family of presumably three kids, with him being the middle child.
Drum House Arc
Shoichi, along with his sister Teruko, meet Tanjiro and Zenitsu at the entrance of the Drum House, searching for their kidnapped older brother.
Abilities and Powers
As an ordinary human, he doesn’t posses any additional powers or abilities. The only thing of note to Shoichi is that he possibly, like his older brother, possesses a rare type of blood referred to as “Marechi” that demons find to be an irresistible delicacy.
- Shoichi is presumably the middle child.
- Zenitsu is under the false assumption that Shoichi is a strong warrior after he lost consciousness inside the Drum House while being accosted by the Tongue Demon. When Zenitsu came to, the demon had been slain, which Zenitsu credited to Shoichi. In reality, Zenitsu had defeated the demon in his sleep.
