Shine is 1 of the 2 title characters and protagonists in Shimmer and Shine.


"Shine is sassy, courageous, confident, bold and witty. Shine has plenty of words of wisdom … that she makes up on the spot. She can’t be tied down by seriousness, formalities or etiquette but the one thing that makes Shine melt is animals, especially her pet Bengal tiger cub Nahal."


Shine has blue hair in a high ponytail curving upward at the ends and big, purple eyes. She has a golden band on her forehead with a pink gem hanging between her blue eyebrows. She also wears a bright teal colored- outfit with a darker ribbon at the waist. The short sleeves on her shirt have gold kuffs on them. Her pants have white pearls at the bottom. She also wears a pair of gold shoes.


Shine appears in every episode of the show.


  • A running gag in the show is that Shine is almost always hungry, which makes her grant snack-themed wishes. For example, she turns the bars of a birdcage into candy in "Welcome to Zahramay Falls".
  • In "Dragon Pox", Shine is revealed to be very knowledgeable about different kinds of animals.
  • Her and Shimmer's parents were never seen in-series.
  • Shine's last name is Aljunni.
  • Fictionally, she and Shimmer would go on to star in the spin-off, Shimmer and Shine: Genie Tales
