Her primary appearance, is a short sleeved black (brown in her Shadaloo C.R.I. profile) leather mini collared jacket with a black bra underneath, matching pants with two triangular designs at the right side to show off her skin with three belt buckles to keep the right sleeve of her pants attached and black heels. She also wears long grey gloves and wields firearms such as a handgun or a sniper rifle.
Her alternate appearance is still her primary outfit; her mini collared jacket, bra and heels are red and her pants are dark red.

In Fighting EX Layer, she wears a different outfit but retains her black leather mini jacket from her original outfit in Street Fighter EX2 and gains white folded sleeves and the collar of her jacket. Her black bra and her matching pants are replaced with a long red revealing sleeveless collared dress that resembles a qipao and the front of her dress shows a full amount of her cleavage, a large dark brown belt and a brown pantyhose. She wears dark red gloves and has a gun holster on both of her thighs where she keeps her main handgun on the right side and a gold buckle with the sign "SIA" at the front and black heels from her original outfit. Her eye color became red instead of brown.
Street Fighter EX seriesEdit
Sharon was entrusted to a monastery when she was still an infant. As she grew up, Sharon began leading a double life, working as an A-Class agent for a secret intelligence organization, as well as a nun raising orphans at the monastery she was raised at. Having never known her true parents, Sharon spent everyday wondering who they were and whatever happened to them.
One day, Sharon's superiors gave her orders to assassinate a certain individual from a neighboring country. While investigating the crime syndicate her target belonged to, she learned that one of the group's key member has the same rose tattoo she has on her chest. Sharon decided to disregard her duty and infiltrated the syndicate to ascertain the identity of this individual and whether or not the person was related to her. While chasing the person with the rose tattoo, she approached the mastermind of the organization. However, she was unable to capture either. The person with the rose tattoo had the same abilities and fighting style Sharon had, managing to overpower her.
For insubordination against her organization, as well as defying her monastery's commandment on pursuing personal vendettas, Sharon was placed on house arrest for a month. After serving her sentence, Sharon went on to continue her search for the person with the rose tattoo.
In her EX3 ending, Sharon has found and defeated the person she was searching for. She demands the truth from the person but suddenly hears a voice from behind saying that Sharon was just like her own mother. As she turns to face the strange voice, she feels an acute pain on the back of her head, whispering; "You are..." before fainting.
Sharon's fighting style is possibly military combat techniques due to her role as an A-Class agent and also using firearms.
Sharon's moves are damaging when she utilizes both her punches and kicks. She can knock her opponent by lunging them on the ground serving as one of her throws. Her kicks are also shown to be damaging when she uses her Half Moon Kick or her basic attacks.
Sharon is the only known playable character in the EX series, and the Street Fighter series in general, to actually wield firearms (i.e., handgun and sniper rifle). She uses them as part of a special attack (specifically one of her Super Combos and her Meteor Combo). When executing one of her Super Combos or her Meteor Combo, it has a limiter in which she can only damage her opponent with just one shot. Sharon does not use her gun in the original Street Fighter EX2 (it only appears in one of her win poses), she started using it in Street Fighter EX2 Plus.
Throughout the EX series as explained below, Sharon's Super Combos involves her to use firearms and she has the most Super Combos aside from her Meteor Combo with a total of four.
Her first Super Combo is Load where Sharon loads her handgun and a bullet symbol will show at the bottom of the screen. She is still able to attack normally and she is seen holding the pistol the entire time while utilizing both punches and kicks. Her second Super Combo is Hellfire where she fires a single shot of her handgun after using Load. Her third Super Combo is the Shuttle Combination where Sharon thrusts her opponent in the air, and follows up with a series of blows before grabbing them mid-air and driving them to the ground face first. Her fourth Super Combo is the Sharon Special as Sharon performs a launching knee attack, and then juggles the opponent with a series of kicks and ends with a Half Moon Kick. Her Meteor Combo is the Assault Rifle and like both Load and Hellfire Super Combos, Sharon will hit a single shot with her sniper rifle dealing massive damage on her opponent.
- Sharon's design, and to an extent gameplay, resemblances and may even have influenced C. Viper (who debuted ten years later after her), as there are some similarities between them.
- In Fighting EX Layer, Sharon's main outfit resembles Miyama Soshigaya's disguised outfit as Death Crow in the manga and anime series, Cyberteam of Akihabara and Jenny Burthory from the Bloody Roar series.
- Sharon is one of the two playable characters to have the word 'Special' in a special attack (in her case, one of her Super Combos, Sharon Special). The other being Abigail (with his Critical Art, Abigail Special).
- In her game portrait in Fighting EX Layer is one of her win pose in Street Fighter EX2 while wielding her handgun.
