WHY ARE YOU PLAYING THIS CHARACTER? WHAT PERSONAL CONFLICTS DO YOU WANT TO EXPLORE IN-GAME: 1. Teen, I don't play enough of them
2. Kickarse female (obvious)
3. I need a MCU char
4. I loved her to pieces in the movies okay and I can't wait to see more of her.
5. Her relationship with both Bucky & T'Challa
7. Her relationship with white people now that Wakanda has come out of hiding in terms of its scientific advancements and how she reacts to that and how white culture reacts to her.
Shuri is both a genius and a child at heart. She's incredibly clever, with an IQ rivaling that of Tony Stark, if not even higher than his. Despite being so young, she's the leader of the Wakandan Design Group, taking pride in the inventions that she comes up with. Even once done, she will continue to try and improve them, believing that they are never perfect. She takes great pride in what she does design, especially when her brother can successfully use it to defend those of Wakanda.
Despite that, we mustn't forget that she is still a teenager. She loves her brother but she also loves seeing him make a fool of himself, something she will more than willingly record to embarrass him with at later moments in time. Despite Wakanda being insulated and her not really liking 'Colonizers' for everything that they have done to other African countries, she has a strong love for American culture from movies to memes and social media. The internet? A wonderful and amazing invention even if she can't post everything that she wants too due to the secrecy surrounding her country. Now that they have come public, she's reconsidering that though.
While being one of the nicest people you could meet, adoring both her friends and family, willing to do anything for them - even fixing white boys - she can be sarcastic at times, especially if she views what the other person said as being incredibly obvious or dumb. She adores her brother and worries about him more than she is willing to admit, which is why she was so terrified when he was 'defeated' even temporarily at the hands of their cousin who returned to take the throne from them.
Her confidence and skills don't help endear people her own age to her though surprisingly her status as Princess is perhaps the lesser of all the problems in this, the Wakandan Royal Family always being more approachable than others due to how insular their society is. She gets on better with older people, though she tries to make friends her own age and her love of having fun and teasing others does help with this.
While logically Shuri realises just how lucky she is in how she grew up at times she doesn't realise just how lucky she has been. Not only didn't she face the other challenges that African countries faced growing up in Wakanda but none of the challnges females faced both in Africa and in America, especially those of African ancestry faced. Since they became public, it has started to become more obvious but even then it's all theortical. She sees but doesn't fully understand. Despite that, she truly wants to help people. Even with the privalge that comes as a Princess, she isn't as privliged or disconnected fro mthe real world as she might be.
PROUDEST MOMENT or WORST MOMENT: Shuri, being who she is has a lot of proud moments especially when it comes to her technology. Perhaps her proudest though was her ability to deprogram Bucky from HYDRA's influence and allow him to live life normally.

Shuri is extraordinarily intelligent despite her young age. Indeed, her intelligence marks her as one of smartest humans in the world, which allows her to be in charge of the Wakandan Design Group and create some of the most recent Wakandan advanced technology.
Shuri is an exceptionally accomplished and ingeniously profilic engineer, as she developed and overseen Wakanda's technology, including weaponry, defenses, communications, transportation, her own energy blast gauntlets, her brother T'Challa's new Panther Habit and Bucky Barnes' Vibranium arm.
Shuri is fluent in her native language, Xhosa as well as English.
Although not a Wakanda Warrior and the leader of the Wakandan Design Group and rarely fighting in the front-lines, Shuri is nevertheless an excellent fighter on her own right, displaying great profiency with a Wakandan Spear, able to defeat many Border Tribe members with ease, surviving the Battle of Mount Bashenga with no injury.
