Shin Hyuga Shaing (シン・ヒュウガ・シャイング, Shin Hyūga Shaingu) is a Britannian knight and the leader of the Knights of St. Michael. Shin is a Geass user, but the exact specifications of his Geass ability are yet to be revealed.
On the outside, Shin is shown to be very honorable and kind individual but on the inside he is very twisted and power hungry that he will not hesitate to kill anyone who gets in his way to power. He is shown to be very proud of himself in what he will achieve and do in order to achieve his goals. He is also very smart in his own right shown when he deduced that Julius Kingsley is Lelouch vi Britannia.
Also shown in some flashbacks and when he talk to Akito, he had no remorse nor guilt on what happened to his family nor even love for his younger brother.
When Shin uses his Geass on Lord Michele Manfredi, by giving him the command to "Take a Trip", he commits suicide.
It is revealed from flashbacks that he is Akito Hyuga's older brother who commanded him 'to die' by using his own Geass on him. It is unknown how Akito survived. According to Akito, they have been separated for 10 years and that the reason his brother wants to kill him is because they have the same blood running through them. Akito intends to return the favor and kill him.
Shin was apparently adopted into a noble Britannian family where he has a Britannian mother and younger sister, that he cares about.
Shin has proven to be very obsvervant, as he deduced that Zero is still alive and is in fact Julius Kingsley himself after a single conversation with him. Specifically, he noticed the similarity between Zero's methods and the "Ark Fleet" plan Kingsley has put in motion against the E.U. Furthermore, he even figured out Kingsley is in reality the eleventh prince of Britannia after Julius muttered the name Nunnally. Shin also remarks that he and Suzaku are similar. He particularly mentions that Suzaku has darkness inside him, which seems to refer to how the latter killed his father during the attack on Japan that led to its annexation as Area 11, compared to Shin having killed his own parents as well.
Shin later reveals his true agenda to Leila that he wants to cause bloodshed between the 3 superpowers by nuking Pendragon along with Emperor Charles.
It was shown that Shin loved his younger adopted sister. He can spoil her and give her every needs and wants. It turns out they were engaged.
- Shin's Seiyu Masaya Matsukaze also did Teru Mikami from Death Note which is also similar to Code Geass. Both Shin and Mikami have supernatural powers and often use their phrases that relates to erase or killing which are Die and Delete. Also Shin's relationship with Akito during their encounter parallels to that of Illumi and Killua in Hunter X Hunter as each older brother haunts their younger brother through haunting and reminding them of their past.
- Shin Hyuga Shaing and Seishiro Sakurazuka from Tokyo Babylon and X are alike in terms of personality and character. Both are rivals to their respective characters from the series due to a tragic past and are fated to fight each other through supernatural means. They are cunning, sinister, and hiddenly motivated as well.
- Shin and Lelouch are very similar. Both are from Britannia, both are cunning, hiddenly motivated, deceptive, and intelligent, the both have sisters, have Geass that influenced their enemy (Akito and Suzaku), and are leaders of their own respective groups.
- Shin is however also different than Lelouch in the way they treat their blood siblings.Lelouch is portrayed as a kind loving brother that would do anything for his sister Nunnally. Shin however tries to kill his brother Akito because they share the same blood.
