Swan Shiratori (白鳥スワン Shiratori Suwan) (also known as DekaSwan (デカスワン Deka Suwan) of the S.P.D. and Dekarangers.. She is nicknamed "Swan-san" (スワンさん Suwan-san) and is known as "The Immaculate Healing Star".
She is Kruger's assistant from the Planet Cigno. She's the one who provides the Dekarangers with their arsenal, and constantly amazes the others with her amazing intellect.
Swan can transform into DekaSwan. Although she says it is her policy to only do it once every four years, in Episode 49, she attempts to transform again when a Batsuroid breaks into her command center. It has been suggested that Doggie and Swan may be "more than just friends", but they both would hastily deny it.
Her surname, Shiratori, can also be read hakuchō, meaning swan. Her number is either 7, (which is represented by the geometrical figure of a heptagon instead of a number), or 99, (the heptagon vaguely resembles the character for "white" (白 shiro), which is one stroke short of "100" (百 hyaku)).

The DekaSwan Ranger Key (デカスワンレンジャーキー Deka Suwan Renjā Kī) is Swan's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.
This key, along with the other nine extra hero keys and the fifteen sixth ranger keys, were initally acquired by Basco ta Jolokia and later used by the Gokaigers. Like all of his Ranger Keys, Basco used his trumpet, the Rapparatta, to turn the DekaSwan key into a puppet to do his bidding. Basco united his nine remaining Ranger Keys, the Black Knight key being taken by the Gokaigers before hand, when he was confronted by Goro Hoshino (OhRed†). The Extra Heroes would then fight the Gokaigers again, who wished to take the Ohrangers' greater power rather than just be given it. DekaSwan and DekaMaster fought Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who fought as OhRed. The Extra Heroes were taken down by the Olé Bazooka. DekaSwan's key, along with the rest of the Extra Heroes was claimed by the Gokaigers.
While in the possession of the Gokaigers, the DekaSwan Ranger Key was used twice by Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink).
- As part of an all-Extra Hero Gokai Change in the Gokaigers' fight with two Dogormin.
- With Joe (DekaMaster) while fighting Zatsurig of the Imperial Guard.
After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Swan received her key and became DekaSwan once more.
Basco united his 9 remaining keys against the Gokaigers when they searched for the Ohrangers ultimate power.the copy of Dekaswan is defeated by Gokai Red.
Behind the scenes
- "Shiratori" (Swan's family name) and "Cigno" (the name of her home planet) are other names for "swan" in different languages (Japanese - shiratori being an alternative reading for the proper word, hakuchou - and Italian respectively).
- It is often debated on whether she is a White Ranger or Orange Ranger, as there are no references to her color in any material so far. Her Ranger Key appears to be white but as there is no “white charge” and only “special charge”, this is inconclusive, given how DekaMaster’s key is blue but emits a “black charge”. Her counterpart has been categorized officially as either, furthering the ambiguity. While her counterpart has been categorized, Swan has not.
- The DekaSwan power appeared more often in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger than in her own series Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger. She is the only participant of the Legend War to have this distinction.
- Swan Shiratori took 36 episodes between her debut and her first transformation, she shares this record with Wise God Torin. This used to be the longest delay in Super Sentai, before being surpassed by two others.
- Swan is the only member of the Super Sentai 199 without a Mecha or the ability to grow giant.
- DekaSwan's suit design is actually based on her usual S.P.D. uniform, with the undersuit having exactly the same design.
In the Korean dub of Dekaranger entitled Power Rangers S.P.D., which aired in South Korea, while his Ranger designation is S.P. Swan.
