While I do have a physician's license, can you believe that's all it took for the government to delegate employee health care to the Analysis Lab? Sure, I may be a latent criminal too, but that doesn't mean they can just slave drive me as much as they want, right? [...] Let's see. Akane, was it?... If you're an Inspector, that puts you on the fast track at the Bureau, right? Hurry up and become a high-ranking official so you can reform the system. You can start by splashing out a swimming pool and bar lounge at the CID. I'm counting on you!

Shion Karanomori is a lab technician in the Analysis Department of the Public Safety Bureau.


Karanomori has brown eyes, wavy black[1] hair which is dyed blonde, extending past her shoulders with center-parted bangs. She is curvy but slender with pale skin. She is usually seen wearing a white lab coat over a tightly fitted red outfit and frilled black bra. She dons a golden necklace and wears red lipstick at all times.


Karanomori is a glamorous sort of woman. She is also quite sluggish and hates the MWPSB because she thinks they overwork her.[2] However, Karanomori also has a sympathetic side, as shown during her private conversations with Tsunemori[3] and Kunizuka.[4]She also has a playful side to her, as seen when she teases Kunizuka occasionally. When it comes to her job, she is seen to be serious and knowledgeable.


The university system no longer exists but those who need a professional license, such as a physician, must continue their education in special schools for two years. Karanomori, therefore, attends Tokyo Medical School after graduation; but after only a year, her ability as a physician is recognized as exceptional and she passes the National Medical Practitioners Qualifying Examination early and earns her license.

She then leaves school halfway through because her long, unstable Psycho-Pass worsens. She decides to join the MWPSB upon the advice from a teacher who had always cared for her.

Yayoi Kunizuka

Kunizuka is in an intimate relationship with Karanomori. Kunizuka initiated their relationship.

Akane Tsunemori

Tsunemori relies on Karanomori's expertise many times during investigations.  They maintain a friendly professional relationship.

Shinya Kogami

Though being in a relationship with Kunizuka, she often flirts with others especially Kogami, calling him "sweetie" or "sweetheart" on occasion.


  • She is most often seen smoking.[2][5][6]
  • Her measurements are B91-W59-H87.
  • Karanomori and Kunizuka wear the same perfume, Ombre Rose. This perfume is her favorite room item.
  • Her hobbies, weakness and weight are "confidential."
  • Her strength is technique.
  • Her favorite food is meat; her least favorite is melon.
  • Karanomori's motto is "Believe your instinct."
  • Her favorite saying is "Makeshift."
  • She sleeps around eight hours per day.
  • She doesn't have a favorite author because she only reads fashion and beauty magazines.
  • Her favorite book is the "Cosmetic and fashion catalogue."
  • Karanomori prefers older men and cute women.
  • Karanomori's ID is 00475-AEUW-06859-3.
  • Her code name is LABO.
  • Karanomori, being a latent criminal, can't leave the premises of the MWPSB without an Inspector suprevising. As such she often asks Ginoza to accompany her when shopping. When she asks him, he looks unhappy and groans, "Not again!" and lectures that she can't be received well by others when she behaves this way. [7]
  • Tsunemori's first impression of Karanomori is that she must have gone through some plastic surgeries or artificial organ implantations because she is too beautiful and her body is perfect. But after a closer look, Tsunemori realizes Karanomori's assets seem quite real and even if surgeries had been done, they would have been minor.[8]
  • When Karanomori finds a little girl who is searching for her father, she and Kogami ask her who her father is. The girl mentions "eyeglasses" ("megane") and "maekami" that sounds like "maegami" ("bangs"), and so she assumes that Ginoza is the father.[9]
