Houki is a first-year student at the IS Academy and Ichika’s childhood friend, though they have not seen each other for six years.[4] She has a very long ponytail.[5] Her place of residence is home to a kendo dojo, which led to her early interest in kendo. Houki even competes in kendo competitions at a national level, and was the winner of the national tournament that was hosted one year before the story of Infinite Stratos began.[6] She is part of the kendo club at the IS academy. Her older sister, Tabane Shinonono, is the creator of the IS, though their relationship is strained. Six years ago, Ichika agreed to become her boyfriend if she could win the national kendo tournament of their grade. However, the day of the tournament is also the day the IS was introduced to the world. Due to the familial links to Tabane, Houki’s family is placed under government protection and Houki is forced to withdraw from the kendo tournament. Since that incident, Houki resents her sister for moving her away from Ichika and abandoning their family.
Despite not seeing him for a long time, Houki still harbors strong feelings for Ichika, as her continuing practice of kendo was her only link to him. She was his initial roommate before the arrivals of Charlotte Dunois and Tatenashi Sarashiki, and tends to get jealous when other girls are around him. Originally not possessing a personal IS, in Volume 3 she receives and pilots the Akatsubaki (紅椿?, lit. Red Camellia) IS from Tabane, one of only two developed 4th generation IS and a short-range melee-class IS, armed with twin katana named Amatsuki (雨月?, “Rainy Moon”) and Karaware (空裂?, “Cracked Sky”). The Akatsubaki has a One-Off ability called Kenran Butō (絢爛舞踏?, “Magnificent Dance”), which allows Houki to replenish both her own and other IS’s energy when she comes in contact with them. However, because she is still unskilled as a pilot and her compatibility with the IS is only at grade C, she is still considered to be on the same level of the other girls. As of Volume 7, her compatibility has risen to grade S.
