Shumira is Jashugan's younger sister, who he loves very much and supports, although he is rarely expressive of his emotions. His pending death and concern for Shumira hold Jashugan back from the secret of Maschine Klatsch, which his master claims is "to synchronize with the rotating machine" and thus being a machine, not fear death. He is not ruthless enough of his pursuit of his art however, to kill Shumira and thus remove his source of doubt as his master admonishes him to.
