During Isuke Inukai's attack on Haru, it is revealed that Tokaku has never killed anyone before, despite possessing very useful skills as an assassin.
She is a distant and cold girl, who dislikes when people comes too close to her and she especially hates it when people call her by her first name, with the exception of Haru. However, she eventually grows to care for Haru over time.
