What is The Psychological Description Of Shido Itsuka ?

A typical young man who initially had no interest in the other gender until his little sister forced him to. He has to deal with women on a daily basis which is something he’s not used to. Kotori also describes Shido as a unique personality: “oniichan had become strangely sensitive towards the despair within people. It’s like every person rejecting themselves and believing that no one can love them. This is basically what he was like back then. He would likely go to any extent possible to help someone with such a melancholic expression, even though it was a stranger. “

Shido is also kind-hearted and can sympathize with others. These traits are what make most Spirits fall in love. The only thing that they seem to lack most is a person who can do this, i.e. Accept and understand them. Even Miku, who used to treat everyone as puppets, found that he changed her entire worldview. He is also strong and friendly, willing to forgive others. He is willing to take on the risk of sacrificing his own safety to save the Spirits. 

What is The Psychological Description Of Shido Itsuka ?

Responding to Natsumi’s comment about his troubles, he says that his actions are similar to those he experienced during his previous attempts to help spirits. He can only compare her actions with his own past efforts to help spirits, and can only label her actions childish pranks despite the fact she almost destroyed his reputation, erased all his friends, and would have then erased him if she had succeeded. Kurumi is treated the same way by him. He tells her he will save Kurumi and that there’s nothing she could do to convince him otherwise.

Even though he is a great person, Shido has a limit to his patience. Before Miku was sealed, he found her annoying. He even said that he hated Miku. However, there are times when he is too kind for his own good. When Natsumi revealed to him that she had taken the form of one his friends, Shido didn’t want to believe it. Kotori was forced to remind Shido what’s at stake. He can’t let his personal feelings cloud his judgment.

Shido’s past is tangled in mystery and rife with questions. We don’t know who his parents were, why he was abandoned and why Shido is the only person in the world capable of sealing the Spirits. What is his relationship to the Phantom? How did Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott get involved with him? And most importantly, “What is Shido Itsuka?” “.

Shido, who was abandoned by his mother at birth, was adopted into the Itsuka family at a young age. A miscommunication on the part of Kotori caused him to become a Spirit five years ago. He was tricked into becoming one. However, neither of them remembers anything about that incident. Kotori used her powers again five year later to awaken those memories.

Story

Although it was discovered that Shido has the ability to seal Spirit powers, it isn’t known how. Shido may have known Origami Tobiichi before the incident. She claimed to have known him at school when they first met, while Shido didn’t remember anything.

It is revealed that Origami had met the future Shido during the events at Tobiichi Devil. He traveled back five years using Kurumi’s Yud Bet, and then he shrinks his body with Natsumi’s power to discover the cause of Origami’s Inversion. Shido comforts Origami who was on the brink of despair after rescuing him from being crushed by the burning part of a building. Origami responded that she would give anything to him, and that she doesn’t feel despair. Origami said that she will give him tears, joy, happiness and all her feelings except her anger at the spirit that killed her parents.

Shido can seal all or a portion of the power of the Spirit, depending on how powerful they were at one time. Shido can “borrow” the power from a Spirit that he has sealed. However, this depends on how intimate or close he is to that Spirit. This is how his regenerative powers are explained. It seems, however, that his body is subject to great pain when he uses a Spirit’s power other than regeneration.

He has used Kotori’s healing power and learned Tohka’s Sandalphon. Later, he was able to summon Yoshino’s ice. However, he was unable to summon these powers from his own free will until the Natsumi case, when he managed to pull out Sandalphon deliberately. 

Shido also has a high level of Spirit energy in his body that makes him immune to the abilities of Spirits. He can withstand Kurumi Takisaki’s City of Devouring Time without difficulty and is unaffected from Miku’s Solo.

If the Spirits’ emotions become too unstable, their powers may return to them and Shido will be left. He will have to seal them again if their powers return fully, but this usually results in the Spirits temporarily regaining some of their original power. As demonstrated in the Kotori and Tohka cases, it is possible for Spirits to regain their full powers without becoming emotionally unstable.
