Kamen Rider Shuki (仮面ライダー朱鬼 Kamen Raidā Shuki, lit. "Masked Rider Scarlet Demon") is a former Oni Kamen Rider.
Kamen Rider Hibiki
Alhough actually in her eighties, Shuki used her power to assume a form that resembled herself in her early 30's. She is also one of the few Oni to use the Firebird shikigami, an ancient technique no longer used by present day Oni. Furthermore, Shuki knows every incantation in the Oni's arsenal, including forbidden ones.
When she was young, her entire family was murdered by the Makamou Notsugo. She used this as a reason to become an Oni. Unlike other Oni though, she used personal grudges and not the desire to uphold justice and protect the weak as a reason to fight the Makamou, and because of this, Shuki's forehead emblem had grown over her face. She was given a student long before she was ready to take one on, but had no choice due to the death of her friend, the original Zanki. She would eventually be stripped of her Oni title when she nearly killed this student, Zanki, in an attempt to destroy Notsugo by aiming for its one weak-spot: its mouth.
Years later she would return to the battlefield, using an Oni Armor to fight Oni in order to steal a transformation device to resume her Oni form and battle the Notsugo once more. Though the armor was destroyed, Shuki managed to get Todoroki's Henshin Kigen and become Kamen Rider Shuki again. The Man and Woman attempted to recruit Shuki, but she refused their offer, overpowering Super Douji & Super Hime before retreating in a blaze.
Lightning Living Again
Later on, she took in Akira Amami as her apprentice due to seeing similarities in her wanting to be an Oni. Shuki's hate of the Makamou would be her downfall, as she was caught in the mouth of Notsugo, she killed herself as a means to get her revenge on it finally, with Zanki finishing the monster off. Dying, Shuki asked Zanki to honor her by covering her in flowers so no one can see her true face.

Although Shuki may appear to be a woman in her 30s, she is actually an elderly woman taking the appearance of her younger self. The Makamou known as Notsugo, killed her parents, so she feels a deep hatred toward it. Even when she became an Oni and member of Takeshi she couldn't ignore this hatred and would not hesitate to sacrifice other Oni in order to destroy Makamou. Seeing Akira in the same situation as her, she wanted to persuade them to follow her and taught them that hate would make them grow stronger.
Despite being an Oni following the wrong path, Shuki still helped others when they were distressed. Despite being invited to join the Makamou, Shuki refused, as she still held the idea that Oni must always oppose Makamou.
