|“||I don’t have any talent in me! What I have are only this sword and rifle! If we lose, I, and everyone else will just be — trash! That’s why I won’t have any regrets! As someone who doesn’t have anyone or anything, I have to use the only thing I have and rise to the top!||”|
Shooting Star is a Magician with a distant Devil ancestry, who leads his team; Team Shooting Star in the Azazel Cup. He is the wielder of the High-tier Longinus; Star Buster Star Blaster, one of the 5 newly discovered Longinus.
Shooting Star is a man in his 20's who wears a cowboy hat and a cowboy style outfit. He usually wields his Sacred Gear; by wielding his longsword with his right hand and rifle with his left hand.
Shooting Star has a competitive streak and is very outgoing. He wanted to compete in the Azazel Cup to obtain fame and prestige. His wish for winning the Azazel Cup is to live in a world without starvation.
Shooting Star is a capable and inspirational leader, able to recruit several talented but obscure individuals by promising them fame & delicious food. He was able to rally his new team to his side and inspire them as most of them came from the lower ranks of society or from obscure families. As they were never praised for their talents and efforts, they are grateful to him for allowing them to prove themselves and he is shown to care for his comrades.
He is shown to be willing and thrilled to face a worthy opponent head on but will not hesitate to eliminate them even before facing off due to his belief that his teams loss would have invalidated all of their prior victories. He greatly believes in his own strength that comes from his Longinus despite bemoaning about his lack of talent, similar to Sairaorg himself (a fact that both Sairaorg and Issei took note of).
He greatly admires both Sairaorg and Issei as he stated that he admired Sairaorg ever since he saw Sairaorg's fight with Issei and as was shown in his Rating Game against Sairaorg, where he was thrilled to face him in combat. He asked Sairaorg if he and his team can become equal to Sairaorg and Issei, to which hearing Sairaorg's positive reply, made him smile.
Not much is known about Shooting Star's past except that he came from a family of Wizards who possessed a distant Devil ancestor. Before the beginning of the Azazel Cup, he recruited his team which consisted of talented individuals who were unknown to the Three Factions due to their low rank or low social status.
