Sidonia no Kishi Wiki

Yure Shinatose (科戸瀬 ユレ, Shinatose Yure) is the "granny" of Izana Shinatose and a scientist who planned to increase the population of Sidonia through cloning and creating new humans who would photosynthesize, which was necessary after the incident 100 years prior which wiped out 99% of the ship's population.

Personality & Character

Yure is one of the premier scientists of Sidonia and part of the Immortal Ship Committee. She distinguished herself in the aftermath of Ochiai's Insurrection with her scientific genius. With her background in genetics, she created a new generation of humans that can survive on photosynthesis and helped repopulate Sidonia within a century. Although an immortal, she's not involved in the council's activities like Kobayashi. Instead, she's a dedicated scientist that has faithfully served under Kobayashi all this time.


Yure came into prominence when she proposed, in the same year, both the method of removing Scientist Ochiai's brain from his body, and the plan to repopulate Sidonia. She was the chief architect and proponent of making future generations photosynthesize, a novel and unique approach to address Sidonia's food production issues.

For her efforts, she was inducted into the Immortal Ship Committee.


  • Yure's surname Shinatose means "family, department, section" (科) (shina), "door" (戸) (to) and "swift current, rapids" (瀬) (se).
