Official Bio[edit source]
A young devil who is visiting human society to gain experience and develop her skills. But instead of studying, she became addicted to video games! After learning about a tool for communicating with humans called "streaming," she's trying it out to help with her studies.
Tokoyami Towa (常闇トワ) is a member of Hololive 4th Generation and a "small devil" (小悪魔) from the devil world.
She often talks like a gyaru and addresses herself as Towa-sama (トワ様).
The hat she has on is actually her pet Bibi (ビビ), a guardian and protector given to her by her mother in order to look after her during her studies. When asked if there would be Bibi hat merchandise, she answered that there is only one Bibi and that he is not for sale.
She is an avid FPS player, with the current FPS games that she usually plays on-stream being Valorant and APEX.
Despite being a devil, she is often referred to as an angel due to her behavior, much to her dismay.
Some instances of her angel-like behavior include:
- Having a healthy sleep schedule and the tendency to do early morning streams. Kiryu Coco has also questioned if Towa is actually an angel because of this on an Asacoco episode.
- Being known to cook healthy meals.
- Surprising her fellow 4th Generation Hololive members with cakes during the Hololive 4th Generation takoyaki party hosted at her place. She also washed the dishes afterwards on her own.
Her representative emote is a Space Invader.
Despite being a devil, Towa is extremely kindhearted and sweet. She usually treats her viewers and fellow Vtubers with care and good-natured respect, save for the few times that she remembers to act devilish and mischievous. Towa occasionally ends up asking her viewers and even occasionally fellow Vtubers for advice on how to act more devil-like.
Even though Towa may appear sociable during collaborations with other Vtubers, she can be very shy in unfamiliar situations. When being shown around the Hololive Office, she stuck closely behind Kanata, holding her hand and tugging onto her clothes. During another occasion with Kanata and Watame, Towa talked a lot, but started apologizing as soon as she realized she was the only person talking, though as soon as the conversation stopped she awkwardly tried to keep it going with weather talk.
Towa enjoys giving it her all when playing games. When she is upset by how a game is going, she tends to yell in frustration and despair. She once played Getting Over It with the condition of "the stream ends when I snap," but only managed to last 10 minutes before ending.
Yet despite her tendency to take the games she plays very seriously, Towa has a goofy, comedic side to her as well. Towa will occasionally break into different comedic impressions at times while she streams (including impressions of Mickey Mouse, Goku and Vegeta from the Dragon Ball franchise, or Shinji and Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion), while also copying or reenacting comedic skits that she's seen in the past. She has once spent an entire stream copying a Japanese comedian's skit with Dead by Daylight.
