Asian (possibly, see Note)
Shujumi was a soldier in the Mobile Infantry. Prior to enlisting, he was accepted to Harvard University; unable to afford tuition, he joined the Federal Service so that the Federation could pay for his college education.
Before the war against the arachnids begin, he was member of Rico's team. After Breckinridge is accidentally killed by Djana'D, while Rico was given ten lashes later, he was visibly devastated. During the Battle of Klendathu, Shujumi was one of the more trigger-happy and bloodthirsty troopers. When Ace froze up after Lieutenant Willy was killed, Shujumi ran into a pack of Warrior Bugs firing wildly. Recklessly advancing ahead of his squad, a Warrior Bug sliced off his leg at the knee. Although Shujumi was incapacitated, "Bugs don't take prisoners", and a pack of Warriors descended on the wounded Shujumi, completly tearing him limb from limb.
- Though his ethnicity was not mentioned in the film, Shujumi is Japanese in the novel. However, Anthony Ruivivar, the actor who portrayed Shujumi, has Filipino ancestry, just like Juan Rico from the novel.
