Shinon (シノン Chinon, romanized as Chinon in the Japanese versions) is a sarcastic, self-interested man. He is good friends with Gatrie and bears a great respect for Greil, which can be revealed in a support with Janaff where he defends the deceased commander. On the other hand, he constantly treats Ike like a foolish child and finds the idea of Greil's son serving as his commander insufferable, also referring to all Laguz as "sub-humans".
Shinon wishes to live a more comfortable life, and feels that the Greil Mercenaries would do better to search out more lucrative employment than scaring bandits away from Crimean villages. Ultimately, he leaves the party, following the news that Ike would succeed Greil as leader of the mercenaries.
Shinon doesn't reappear until much later, when he is employed by the Daein army to help stop Ike's forces from advancing across the Daein border. He rejoins the company grudgingly, under the persuasion of Rolf, but only after Ike has defeated him.
In Path of Radiance, Shinon's age is revealed to be twenty-seven in his A level support conversation with Janaff, and Rolf was even known to call him "uncle" Shinon.
In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Shinon helps the Laguz Alliance along with the other Greil Mercenaries, but he stills dislikes Ike. He shoots the arrow that cuts the rope on the noose that the rebels are hanging Lucia at the end of part 2. He continues to mentor Rolf and has created his own bow, the Silencer.
