Etymology

  • The name Shisei means "four" (肆) (shi) and "star" (星) (sei).
    • His true name was revealed to be Shiboshi (肆星), which translates to "Four Stars".
      • Part of his name, 肆 ("shi"), has similar pronunciation as four (四, "shi"). Four (四) has the connotation of to kill since it is a homophone with the Japanese character for death, 死 (shi).[1]
