Makina Hoshimura is a Shikabane Hime, a killer of other Shikabanes. She is one of the main characters of the anime Shikabane Hime
Makina was killed when the Shikabane group called the Seven Stars attacked her and her and her family. She was brought back as a Shikabane Hime because of her desire to get revenge on the Seven Stars. Each Shikabane Hime has a unique weapon and Makina's is a pair of sub-machine guns.
Makina's contractor monk is Keisei Tagami. They have been working together to kill Shikabane's for approximately 2 years. When Keisei becomes unable to be Makina's monk Ouri Kagami takes over.
Makina with Keisei
Shikabane Himes are allowed to go to Heaven when they have killed 108 Shikabanes. For most Himes that is their main goal but Makina's goal is to just get revenge.
Makina is very opposed to Ouri being her contracted monk. She believes the only monk for her is Keisei. She struggles to get over Keisei's death until near the end of the series. When Shikabane Hime gets a new contractor monk they are required to undergo a procedure that will break the bond or connection from their previous monk. Makina refuses to do this and is attacked by Saki and Rika. Later, Ouri lies and says Makina did break her bond with Keisei. Makina then starts to accept Ouri as her monk and is able to use energy from both her bond with Keisei and Ouri, thus making her stronger than most Shikabane Hime.
