Juzo is a man of average height, with short, spiky black hair. Like his brothers, his eyebrows tend to look frowning, even when he smiles. He greatly resembles a younger version of his father.
Juzo is first introduced while fighting Mamushi Hojo over their families, and although at first he is advising Kinzo Shima not to get into a fight with her, he subsequently gets quite worked up about it, resulting in a physical confrontation. However, he seems to be more level headed and responsible than Kinzo, and less laid back than Renzo Shima. He is serious when it comes to his duties, and has showed concern about his childhood friend Mamushi, as well as taking care of his father. He has a lighthearted side and gets on well with his two youngest brothers. He is shown in flashbacks as a child carrying baby Renzo on his back while playing, and even now seems to be looking after him, offering to help him train.
Since the first son of the Shima family, Takezo, was killed in the Blue Night incident 16 years ago, Juzo is the successor of the Shima family. He and Mamushi are childhood friends and attended the Exorcist cram school together.
