A Magical Girl from the main family of the Tokime Tribe who is their current leader. Born and raised in an isolated rural village, it was decided that she would become a "Diviner" (Puella Magi) for the sake of Japan. Its her first time living in the city, so everyone is helping her out. She's been good at fishing since she was young.
The Doppel of Peace. Its form is a Thousand Hands. The master of this emotion devotes her life to others to a self-sacrificing degree, and because her Doppel shares a similar mindset, the two are deeply linked with each other. This Doppel reacts sensitively to those who its master views as enemies, and if necessary, it will wield violence against said enemies to instill in them an understanding of the wonders of altruism. Those who receive its teachings will suffer hideous injuries, but due to this Doppel’s brilliant gold shine and the artistic nature of the violence it inflicts, its victims become so fascinated as to forget the pain entirely, and are said to become its captives before they even know it.
The following is a summary by muzass96.
The Tokime trio is going shopping while also visiting Emiri's office to hang out. There they bump into Hinano and Kanoko. After some awkward introductions to Kanoko by Emiri, Shizuka stumbles as she has no idea what a factory is. Kanoko thoroughly explains. Emiri wonders (while not being very polite about it) what it's like living in a countryside. Their responses about this differ, because Chiharu was originally from the city and Sunao is from a different village and more educated about modern life compared to Shizuka. They also mention that they first met not so long ago. Emiri is again surprised how did they bond so quickly, to which Shizuka proudly answers that they are bound by their desire to protect the country and explains the whole shtick behind the Tokime purpose and thinks that people from outside may not understand that. The girls are surprisingly alright with her choices, and Emiri says "As long as you have no regrets, it's okay!"
This causes Shizuka to again stumble because she never even thought about it. She was just eager to become a protector of Japan. She didn't even understand what she was asked to wish for, which was break up some economic agreement. But it didn't matter to her, because she was told it was for the good of Japan. After some thought, she decided to look it up, with the help of everyone, including Ryoko and Chika. Although the initial search gave no results, it was later decided to look for some info in the village, also to no avail. Until Shizuka and Chiharu were finally able to talk to their mothers. Chiharu's mom mentions that there was talk about that economic break up on the news, but she doesn't remember much. But if anything did came off that, it was the industrial status quo in the country. But Shizuka is still not convinced that her wish actually was good, so the next day she announces to her team and their mothers that she wants to look at the files from the elder's computer. Shizuka's mom wasn't able to erase them and asked Chiraru's mom to save them on hers.
After some objections from Sunao, the recording was played and it turns out her wish was bought by someone who wanted to save the factories, otherwise he would have been out of work if the agreement stood. But this actually devastated Shizuka because her wish was used by someone. But she immediately put on a brave face, saying that everything is fine and convincing herself that her wish doesn't matter as long as she is a good head of the tribe. And to stay true to this, she intensively started to drill and train her meguca tribe members. But her fellow Tokime actually decided to keep looking for clues, because it hurts them to see her like this. Sunao and Chiharu remember Kanoko talking them about her family's metal factory and decide to go to Emiri to find out how to contact her to see if she knows something.
After explaining the situation to Hinano and Emiri, the latter again has her burst of random brilliant ideas and tells them instead of looking for those who suffered from this, to look for people who were saved. Chiharu remembers her mom's words about industrial status quo and Hinano elaborates that due to the agreement breaking off, many local manufacturers were saved by staying in work, thus Japanese economy didn't go down. And because essentially nothing changed for the country, there were little to no news about it, which is why Sunao and Chiharu couldn't find anything. Chiharu and Sunao arrange a meeting with Kanoko at the factory and dragged Shizuka there, where Kanoko's father tells her that if that agreement came through, his factory would have been dead because goods from overseas would have actually come cheaper and his production would have been defeated by it. Unlike now, when his factory is actually selling goods to a big company, as Kanoko mentioned during the first meeting.
Shizuka, moved by this, decides to accept the fact that she was used, but to feel pride about what her wish brought. Overflowing with resolve, she decides to go shopping alone, while her fellow Tokime are at school.
At the story's start, Shizuka has just discovered swimsuits, and is shocked that people would wear such revealing clothes. At Chiharu's questioning, Shizuka reveals that the traditional Tokime swimming garment is quite conservative, much like a diver's suit. Chiharu and Sunao propose that Shizuka takes this an opporunity to buy her own swimsuit, explaining to her that these outfits are completely normal to wear at the beach or swimming pool. While she's still a bit intimidated, she eventually goes along with it.
In the store, Shizuka comes out of the dressing room in her new outfit; Sunao and Chiharu love it, but Shizuka remains hesitant about the idea of wearing it in public. At this, Sunao proposes that Shizuka shows it to the others in the tribe so she can get used to wearing clothes like this. Shizuka then asks Chiharu and Sunao if they ever feel self-conscious in their swimsuits - Sunao admits she does, but Chiharu reassures Shizuka that everyone else will be dressed the same way. Shizuka finally agrees to buy it, saying she wants to visit the beach and pool someday, too.
The girls return to Suitoku Temple and get dressed in their swimsuits to show them off to their tribemates (Sunao and Chiharu joining Shizuka to provide soul support for her). Ryouko immediately asks why they're dressed up in swimsuits in a temple, and the girls explain the situation, saying they're doing this to help Shizuka get used to being seen by people in this outfit. Ryouko says the swimsuit itself looks good - it's just deeply inappropriate to wear in such sacred ground! Asahi and Chika concur, saying Shizuka looks adorable and should have confidence in herself.
Finally, Chika takes a photo of Shizuka in her swimsuit, and Shizuka sends it to her mom. To her delight, her mom loves the swimsuit, too! ...But her mom also says she mustn't wear it at the temple. Chiharu smiles, saying they'll take a photo from the beach or pool next time.

Powers and Abilities
She can prevent enemies from moving, but at the cost of being unable to move herself.
- The characters of her last name mean "time" (時) and "woman" (女) respectively.
- The characters of her first name mean "quiet" (静) and "incense" (香) respectively.
- Shizuka has been living in the secluded Tokime Village all her life and has a lot of trouble adjusting when they go to Kamihama. It is shown that she had only seen trains in photos, seldom traveled by car, and also does not know what a smartphone or IC card is. At one point she even gets stuck on the subway turnstile and has trouble using a vending machine. In the comic Magia Report, she calls chocolate "tasty black sugary treats".
- In Mitama's Special Training - Shizuka Episode, it is confirmed that Shizuka has been homeschooled.
- It is said in Chapter 2 of Arc 2 that, she may have contracted at most three years before the main story takes place.
- Shizuka knows little to no English, but very skilled in handling complicated kanji. Ironically, her VA speaks English very fluently, as she has been living most of her life in Australia.
- Her Doppel is named after a Hindu goddess of the same name (whose name can mean either "to cross" or "star"), a form of Shakti (a primordial cosmic entity who represents the dynamic forces that move throughout the entire universe).
- A version of a Hindu creation myth claims that when the Earth was first created, it only had water and land, and lacked the ability for life to spring forth without the sun. The two creation deities changed forms, one of them becoming Tara: Tara has the capability to produce light, energy and heat. When the power met with that of the other deity, their combined power became the source of the sun. When their combined powers got integrated in the sea, many pulsating energy orbs were created, in which it led to the expansion of energy. This most likely references the Tokime Tribe's goals to replicate and help expand Kamihama's Doppel field.
- Tara is also the name of a Buddhist diety known as the "mother of liberation". She is said to have be created from the tears of the entity Avalokiteśvara when he beheld the suffering of the world. Tara is known to manifest as a teenage girl and according to one legend, swore to always manifest in a female form to show that anyone can be saved regardless of gender.
- Its Doppel description bears similarities to that of Kriemhild Gretchen.
- Outside of its Hindu/Buddhist themes, Tara has long hair, a black beak, and three scaled tails that resemble fish fins. It's appearance is likely inspired by the Amabie, a Japanese supernatural mermaid monster known for predicting good harvests and disease outbreaks. The Amabie's image is a source of healing.
- During her Doppel Sequence, there is an animation error where Shizuka has three hands.
- During Shizuka's transformation scene, there are countless remains of Magical Girls in the water. It is presumed that these are the remains of Tokime Tribe's Magical Girls who were sacrificed for various wish agreements and disposed of by successive Mikoshibas.

|Green, green, her entire world was overflowing in green.
Surely the girls that stepped here in the past tried to fill it with an infinity of colors. But it doesn't stain. Those girls were never without color.It's really dazzling, because I'm finding my own charm.
|It departs, the tempest leaves and clear weather shines on in the dreams of the girls.
Time passes, long enough that you begin to resent the numbers. Coming home, a fleeting hope that will never come true.The heart changes to surprise and perplexity, and before long you're made to sink into the pits of the Senosa.
|"I thought you'd call forth an animal through your mysterious dance,
but I'm surprised to find Lord Kyubey is the one who grants wishes! I don't understand how he's able to do that, but I'm certain it's amazing!Whatever happened, it gave me pride!"
|Hard asphalt, gray buildings, people coming and going left and right!
Baptised, fluffy-lightheaded girls, recover quickly! Don't be frightened like a small animal, don't be done in by the city!So please, drink this water. Though it's unknown if it's poisonous.
|Acknowledged by the Uwasa and guided by them to a banquet in the Land of the Pure.
The respite may be cold, but I can't help but feel at peace. I'm certain it's because in the end, we were able to fit together beautifully in a single hand....That's what I thought, but a warm voice is trying to pull me back.
|It was a wish that was sold, a wish that came true without knowing its meaning
Get out of a closed village and get to know the world widely I finally knew the meaning of my wish and the meaning of what was doneI'm proud of what I've protected even though it's difficult to understand
|“Small, everyday life can be seen from here…” It’s the way people do things,
What we, the Tokime Tribe, should protect. The road is steep and it’s not easy.I swear once more that I will protect this everyday life as the blade of the Land of the Rising Sun.
|I care about my surroundings every day, so today I repaying those favors in the usual way.
Looking up at the full moon and eating, the dumplings are ideal and have an enchanting sweetness. My face is more open, and a smile plays across my face brightening it.“It’s ok to indulge a little”
|**Unique to Shizuka Tokime**|
If you wear this garment and perform the ceremony, then you will join the ranks of adults from today on.
Tomorrow, I will leave this small village. I will be able to accomplish more for the sake of the Land of the Rising Sun.The shrine maidens placed their faith in that and then embarked to the river’s bottom.
|"Happy New Year! I look forward to working with you again this year!"
"...So, it's the new year! Shizuka-chan, what are your resolutions for this year?" "I will protect the Land of the Rising Sun so that we can see another beautiful sunrise next year!""Teehee, let's all do our best to make it a good year"
|**Unique to Shizuka Tokime (First Sunrise ver.)**|
Kamihama's best sensibilities, pure kindness and innocent imagination.
They were miraculously combined to create a very original and inspiring design proposal.“Hey... this is very fashionable nowadays.”
|The beginning of a new year makes me excited, because I feel like I have become a new person myself.
Oranges, sea breams, hibachi, and rice cakes are like gods of good fortune to celebrate your new self, so let's meet expectations and celebrate the New Year with new knowledge!“Eat Galette des Royes and decide who is the happiest!”
|"Now that we've escaped, we don't know what to do...
Beaten by the rough seas of the city, tossed about by a culture we don't understand. The feelings we have been trying to achieve in Kamihama will never fade.So I shine on. I will continue to shine for you who refuses to run away...!!"
|"Come on, Sunao! Chiharu! Let's go see what's beyond the horizon."
"Hmm, well I'd like to go see it someday but... really, don't tell me you're going to go see it now?!" "Well of course! Hurry up and get ready, we're going to swim right across the ocean.""Shizuka! Didn't I already tell you that the ocean isn't just some giant pond!"
|Thoughts that have not been fulfilled, legends mixed with reality... That old tradition has been piled up on them, and now it is the time to face it and start anew, and the daughter of the head family cuts off the proof of deception.||果たされなかった想い、虚実入り混じる言い伝え…
|"Speaking of New Year's, mochi stretches really far. I'm wishing for a long life when I eat it."
"I'll bite everyone's head to make them healthy! Where's Madoka-senpai?" "I'm summoning God from this Kadomatsu! ...Hey, it's here! The MagiRepo God for 2020 is...!""It's Yuna Kureha..."
|"What these girls hold are the finest products made by the best chocolate shops in Kamihama.
The first shop I will introduce, located near Minagi Sea, sells a bitter chocolate with a rich cocoa aroma that wafts through the nose.It is the perfect accompaniment for green tea, and should be sampled by all those who love Japanese cuisine."
|Welcome to a new year with a beautiful and powerful first sunrise. The New Year, which was supposed to come for granted, did not arrive to the village, and the falling disaster that did come trampled over the girl's precious things, and the brothers and sisters had no place to die and could not hope for tomorrow.||美しく力強い初日の出とともに、新しい１年を迎える
|"I adjusted it based on your image, but what do you think?"
"...Wow, it’s just as I imagined! The details are perfectly reproduced!" "That’s great! Sometimes the process fails when miscellaneous thoughts get mixed in."(Oh, that was dangerous ...at first it was full of nothing but miscellaneous thoughts...)
|"We can't lose this battle, no matter what...!
...H-Hey! For God's sake, please be quiet!" "Heh heh, the fish are messing with you. Now then, I'm going to get serious!"The battle of the girls for the pride of Tokime continues...
|Family, friends, and sometimes even a fluttering love!
The name of this gentle place where troubled girls run to is Mikazuki Villa. Even today, Mikazuki Villa is crowded with the memories of girls...Such a what-if story
|The everyday life that might have been, the past that we miss but cannot return to.
Even if they're forced to do so with painful reluctance, the only thing that lies ahead is the future. No matter how painful or hard it is, Magical Girls don't give up.Aiming for the one and only future that shines ahead, a future that can be saved.
|A noisy night, with pillows flying and laughter echoing.
It's supposed to be an outlandish fantasy, yet somehow it feels so cozy Ever since I met you, I've been going crazyI can't give up this life, this world, anymore.
|"Wow, so this is New Year's Eve soba...!"
"Heh heh, try it before it gets cold." "It's a work of art made by me and Sunao-chan!"The best dish to warm your body and soul at the end of the cold year, for you!
|Two girls face each other across time and across countries.
Their family's karma weighs heavily on their backs. Is this why they were drawn to each other, or is it a tangle of causes and effects?Either way, this encounter shines with an intense and vivid light, illuminating the world around them.
