Shizuka is an exotic high-school student who was abducted by an UFO in the past. She mutters about mysterious events while looking at the sky at a 40 degree angle. Always holding onto a mysterious egg, Shizuka will never part with it.
Official Guidebook (Japanese)
I am...Shizuka. A worried country...and I too worry... It seems...I'm confined in this vase. A strange dream... Silver saucers... Taking away...the animals... ...Why? My king... We really need to talk.
Shizuka has long black hair parted into two long ponytails and wearing a white headband. She has violet eyes and has a mole below her right eye. She is always carrying a mysterious egg called the Diamond Egg. Shizuka is wearing a summer version of a Japanese schoolgirl uniform consisting of a white shirt with a navy sailor-suited collar and skirt.
New Little King's Story
Like her original counterpart, Shizuka gives the appearance of a Japanese schoolgirl in summer clothing. She is even seen holding a schoolbag. However, she denies ever being a princess in the first place, claiming that she came from a different world(a fact which everyone else appears to dismiss as her wonderous imagination). She also appears to have a close relationship to animals, which matches her special ability to recruit animals and some enemies, similar to how the king recruits the royal guard.
Shizuka's given name is named after the term, shizuku (雫 shizuku, drip), a drip-pressed technique used in sake. There is a sake called Ginga Shizuku (銀河雫 Ginga Shizuku, Divine Droplets), which you can read 銀河 (ginga) as "Milky Way; galaxy" which reflects Shizuka's fascination with outer space. Shizuka is also a female given name in Japan, written as 静 (calm), 静花 (calm flower), or 静香 (calm fragrance).
To be consistent with her outer space theme, Shizuka's surname, 諸星 (Moroboshi), is a Japanese surname meaning "many stars".

- According to her grade in high school, Shizuka is about 16 to 17 years old.
- The Ganymedien giant, Callistan paramecium, and Europan ichthyoid are derived from three of the largest moons (Ganymede, Callisto, Europa) on Jupiter.
- Shizuka sometimes will see visions of the world beyond such as Big Corobo and the Rats which she describes them as "Red, Yellow, Blue, Gray." She then gets a headache afterward.
- Spumoni mentions that Shizuka has a strange laptop that says "DON'T PANIC" written all over it. This is a reference to the an encyclopedia on all of the creatures and worlds in the galaxy (and some stuff on towels!) from the novel, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams.
- If spoken to repeatedly, Shizuka will mention her surname, her hometown, and what grade she's in. She also remembers waking up in the morning, having breakfast, getting on the bus, pushing someone out of her seat, then speaking to a man in black, arriving in Hollywood, and then being abducted by aliens. These many details suggest she was based on someone Corobo knew in real life.
- Shizuka's school background is different depending on the version. All versions mention her being a second year student at a Senior High School. In the Japanese version, Shizuka attends Nishi-Shinjuku Tsukudani Academy (西新宿ツクダニ学園 Nishi-Shinjuku Tsukudani Gakuen) in Shinjuku, Japan.
