He ends most of his sentences with "~nomi."
Shut has pale blonde hair, green eyes with blue makeup underneath, blue lipstick, and wears a white hat with blue roses and a blue feather on the side. He also wears a suit with flaring sleeves and white ruffles, and also blue fishnet stockings and long boots. He wears a lock similar to Close's on his neck like a brooch. Additionally, he is usually always seen carrying a blue rose. He also has fanged teeth.
In his beast form, he resembles a large lynx-like creature with light yellow fur and red eyes with dark blue markings under them.
In episode 50, he now wears a bright blue suit and shorts with a ruffly white shirt underneath. He also wears black fishnet stocking and heels. His hair is now in a bun and his makeup is now the same as in episode 33. He now wears Lock, who is now a black and yellow-striped scarf.
Shut adores everything that is beautiful but considers dreams as pointless. He is a narcissist and also pompous. When suffering from a loss against the Pretty Cure, he can be a sore loser as well.
Unlike Close and Lock, he seems to be timid and easily scared, and this trait is shown on various occasions; when Twilight was defeated and turned back into Towa, he acted horrified and shocked as if something very tragic had happened. When Lock later powers up and resorts to more dastardly and sinister plans, he cowers in fear.
When he interacts with others, he mostly puts up a rather cold and hostile attitude. But occasionally, when meeting somebody (namely Miss Shamour) who treats him kindly, he can come across grateful. He likes presenting himself in a fancy, feminine way, and he ends up bonding with Miss Shamour over this.
- Twilight - When he first sees Twilight, he seems to be charmed by her beauty, to the point in which he feels jealous when she powers up Lock instead of him. He is always seen blushing or admiring her when he is around her. After Twilight is purified, Shut becomes devastated, and in episode 25, he learns that she now goes under the name "Akagi Towa" and is also Cure Scarlet. Though he still finds her beautiful, at the same time, he wants to defeat her.
- Lock - At first, Shut thinks of Lock as an annoying kid who just gets in his way, but as the episodes progress, and Lock becomes more powerful, Shut begins to be more afraid of him and sees him a lot differently.
- Miss Shamour - Shut seems to have a good deal of respect for her as she was the first to show any kindness towards him, by helping him with his makeup and then by giving him a scarf to keep him warm after he leaves on his own. This seems to be what influenced his decision of leaving Dys Dark as he is seen wearing the scarf when he returns to help the Pretty Cure.
- Close - Shut has a poor relationship with Close, owing to the latter always abusing him cruelly. On the surface, he pretends to obey Close, but deep down, he actually bears a boiling rage against him.
Shut makes his formal debut in episode 3, fighting alongside Close. He meets the girls in person after taking over a karate boy's dream and turning it into a Zetsuborg, which he commands to attack. However, after Close arrives with his own Zetsuborg, the two begin to argue over who should attack whom, buying Flora and Mermaid enough time to finish off their Zetsuborgs, forcing them to take their leave after their defeat.
In episode 7, Shut appears at the tennis match and considering Aihara Yuuki's dream of playing tennis dumb, he corrupts Yuuki and turns the latter into a Zetsuborg. But once again, he is defeated after Mermaid and Twinkle came to Flora's aid.
In episode 12, Shut appears at the finished race between Kirara and Ichijo Ranko. In the beginning, he mistakes Ranko as a comedian and is puzzled by Ranko dreaming about becoming a top-class adorable idol, but he still seals her dream away as he finds it stupid. He suffers from defeat after the girls purifies his Zetsuborg.
In episode 13, Shut accompanies Twilight for the first time when the latter uses her black Dress Up Key to power up his lock, which he uses to target Nishikido-san as his victim, locking him and making a violin Zetsuborg, but the Cures end up saving him.
He also accompanies her in episode 14, admiring her grace and music, though Twilight appeares to have no interest in his admiration. He later traps the Haruno family into cages and creates a Dorayaki Zetsuborg but loses again after Flora is determined to save her family. He is bitter about the loss and goes on to attack the Cures until Twilight calls him out for being a sore loser, and he desperately trails behind her as she storms off.
In episode 17, Shut goes with Twilight at the fashion show and he targets Amanogawa Stella, using her strong dream to create two model Zetsuborgs at the same time. However, he loses when Twinkle's tight bond with her mother allows her to obtain a new Dress Up Key, which incapacitates the Zetsuborg enough for the three Cures to purify and save Stella.
In episode 20, Shut and Lock confront Mermaid and Twinkle respectively as the two Cures are wandering to the castle of Hope Kingdom, but the girls end up distracting them. Then in episode 21, he is astonished and horrified to witness Twilight turning back into Towa, realizing that she wasn't the beautiful Black Princess he had an obsession on.
In episode 23, Dyspear has enough of him constantly losing to the Pretty Cure, and demotes his position so that he would no longer have the authority to go on important missions. Later in episode 24, Shut is astonished by how Lock has aged and wonders what possibly happened. While Lock remains casual and refuses to acknowledge his change, Shut still insists as he knows that he had been replaced by Lock.
In episode 25, Shut is humiliated by Lock, who adds salt to his wound of losing his crush for Twilight during their boat ride. When he notices Towa's happiness, he is fueled with anger and summons a Zetsuborg from the leader among a group of volunteer firemen. He then openly expresses his jealousy towards Towa, and even when Minami tries to convince him that Towa is not Twilight anymore, he refuses to accept the fact. He is once again left humiliated after the Cures finish off his Zetsuborg with their teamwork.
In episode 26, he is wandering Noble Academy, depressed that there was no person vulnerable enough for him to gather despair when he spots a cicada. He takes advantage by turning the cicada into a Zetsuborg, though it is particularly useless. When he notices Pafu is trying to capture the cicada Zetsuborg with a bug net, he becomes really annoyed by her antics and tries to attack her with the insect until Aroma arrives to protect Pafu. He soon witnesses the fairy siblings gaining their new forms, and then faces a painful defeat from the Cures before storming off.
He does his mission on collecting despair and turning victims into episode 27, this time targeting Yuki's fangirls and summons three Zetsuborgs in return. But thanks to Yuki who helps the Cures by using a rock to knock the Zetsuborgs off guard, his plan is foiled.
In episode 29, Shut is startled to find three Lock clones, each holding three keys. He can only helplessly wonder what happened as Lock reveals that although he's still missing some of the keys, he has more than enough. When Lock throws the brand new lock at the Hope Kingdom's castle, it lifts itself up from the ground and turns into a grand Zetsuborg, much to Shut's surprise.
In episode 33, Shut is abused by Close who catches him putting on makeup, and his mirror is shattered as punishment. He then meets Miss Shamour, Kuroro and the girls, and becomes extremely envious of them being able to have nice clothes and makeup, thus he targets the black cats and turns them into Zetsuborgs. Just as he is about to attack Yui and the fairies, Miss Shamour stops him and after a small combat between them, she decides to give him a makeup lesson to help him feel better. After having a huge makeover, he is still amazed by his own makeup and leaves the scene. He even shows his new look to his colleagues when he gets back to the Dys Dark lair.
After having failed to accomplish Dyspear's ultimatum for him in episode 45, Shut is seen wandering on his own in episode 46, as he is afraid to be executed by his boss. When he notices the girls building a snow castle, his grudge towards them finally explodes and the power of despair turns him into a fierce lynx-looking beast. After the Cures purify him, Cure Scarlet tries to persuade him to turn over a new leaf, but he coldly rejects her and leaves with the scarf Miss Shamour gave him.
In episode 48, after witnessing Close's resurrection and how he controlled Lock, Shut recalls how Close used to abuse him as well, so he decides to help the Cures by briefly stopping Close's attack, even though he gets overpowered afterwards. He also begs the Cures to purify Lock. In episode 49, he and Lock assist the Cures by buying them time through intervening with the vines Dyspear created.
After the Cures' final battle with Close in episode 50, Shut no longer has his powers and therefore has stayed in the human world, with Lock now possessing his scarf. He then meets Mochizuki Yume and Shirogane-san when he is in the rose garden, and is last seen shyly and awkwardly greeting them.
Like the rest of the Three Musketeers, he can trap people into a gate of desperation to create Zetsuborgs. To trap people in the gate of desperation, he says "Shut Your Dream!" (シャット・ユア・ドリーム！?). In episode 20, it is shown that he can fire lasers from his rose. He can also slash through anything with his claw-like nails.
Shut's voice actor, Hino Satoshi, has participated in an image song for the character he voices. This duet is only sung with Madono Mitsuaki, who voices Close, and Kaida Yuki, who voices Lock.
- Perfect Black (Along with Madono Mitsuaki and Kaida Yuki)
- Like the other members of the Three Musketeers, his name refers to sealing something away.
- Shut's favorite flower is the rose, as it reminds him of his past crush towards Twilight/Cure Scarlet.
