Appearances[edit | edit source]
Shiroma is a White Mage who lives alone in an island near a village inhabited by non-human characters. Although she is despised for being human by most characters she meets, Chocobo instead appreciates her company. She has a small doll that she calls Kuz. As one of Chocobo's party members, she can heal his HP once per floor whenever Chocobo's HP turns yellow. She is also highly proficient with magic, having quite high magic levels when used by the player character. Her physical attacks are about average.
It is revealed that she is from the future, whose home was destroyed by Glass Goth.
In Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy, she makes a cameo appearance in Chapter 3 with an optional dungeon for the player to clear. She is found at the Empty House in the Residential District. Completing her dungeon will unlock her buddy for use. She uses the same Cure spell that Shirma uses.
Known as White Mage, she rides the Cosmic Carpet. She lives in Mysidia, the land of mages and magicians. She was the one who told the story about the Magicite divided into eight Blue Crystals. Feeling responsible for her actions, White Mage followed Chocobo and its party. She has a more cheery personality than Shiroma does and is considered to be two different people.
White Mage uses the Barrier ability which protects her from the effects of the magical stones and some abilities. The Cosmic Carpet that she uses is slow, but easy to handle. Her theme is a remixed version of the "Town Theme" from the original Final Fantasy.
While still young, Shirma's mother and father were killed in a great war. Her mother told her that she should not be sad, and should always smile, no matter what. Taking this to heart, she gathered up some chocobos she found who had been scattered by the war, and took them to the Chocobo Farm on a far off island, away from the war torn mainland.
Here, at the farm, she lived with her Uncle Cid, taking care of all the chocobos. From time to time, she would gather them up and read them stories, along with the Black Mage Croma. Eventually, Cid left for the main land again, taking his new invention, the airship, with him.
During one of the story sessions, Croma brought along a dark tome, and with the help of Chocobo they unlocked the Darkmaster Bebuzzu. Shirma, Croma, and Chocobo managed to avoid getting sucked up into Bebuzzu.
Shirma now traveled with Chocobo, in the hope of freeing all the other chocobos. With Shirma helping, Chocobo was able to advance far, and restore all the crystals. However, with every crystal restored, the mysterious Irma would appear and let Bebuzzu absorb its energy.
The spirit of the water crystal, Leviathan, revealed that Chocobo, Shirma, and Croma were all descendants of the Warriors of Light who had sealed up Bebuzzu 400 years ago. After freeing the light spirit Ramuh, they find out Irma is the final descendant. Bebuzzu then appears, and explains that he had spared the four of them on purpose to restore the crystals. With the power of the four crystals, Bebuzzu leaves to the dark realm.
Unable to help anymore, Shirma stays behind to root Chocobo on. After defeating Bebuzzu once and for all, life returns to normal at the farm, and Shirma resumes her duties of caring for the chocobos.
Shirma is a kind-hearted White Mage who is in a constant worrying state. She lives with her Aunt Stella at the farm at the outskirts of Lostime. Shirma does not like that the townspeople are okay with losing their memories because she personally had precious memories she wanted to keep. The girl meets with Chocobo and Cid when the two appeared at the clocktower one fateful day, and quickly brought them to the farm. She asks Chocobo if he had met her sister, but by then she had almost forgotten about her due to the Bell of Oblivion. Later that night, she encountered a baby Raffaello and cared for him.
Her sister is Croma, who was the Oracle of Darkness before "The Destroyer" came. Shirma is also the Oracle of Light that helped seal the Destroyer with her Guardian Beast, Alexander. It is revealed in a book found in the empty house after the ending, that she and her sister are the daughters of two of the nine former heroes who died against the Destroyer: Elena, the White Mage and Nero, the Black Mage.
Shirma is a mysterious girl who suddenly appears washed up at Million Island, she helps guide Chocobo as they explore the worlds of the picture book. She is also the hero of Cid's fourth picture book "The Girl Without a Name".
