Touka Kirishima is a ghoul who is an ex-waitress at Anteiku. She is the daughter of Arata Kirishima and Hikari Kirishima, the older sister of Ayato Kirishima, the wife of Ken Kaneki and the mother of Ichika Kaneki. Touka wears a rabbit mask while hunting, earning her the alias Rabbit. In Tokyo Ghoul, she was a second-year student at Kiyomi High School and later a third-year after the post-Aogiri timeskip. Two years after the Owl Suppression Operation, she returns as the Manager of the coffee shop :re. Following its destruction she joins the newly formed organization Goat, thus relocating to the 24th ward along with its other members. After the Defense of Tokyo, Kaneki and Touka currently live happily married (which now makes her Touka Kaneki) with a daughter and another child coming, with humans and ghouls finally united together. Touka is a slender and attractive teenage girl with bob-length dark blue hair that has long bangs that reach her chin covering the right side of her face and blue eyes. She appears to be a cute, normal girl that one would not suspect to be a ghoul. Her facial features and hairstyle bear a strong resemblance to Hikari Kirishima (Touka's mother) and Ayato Kirishima (Touka's younger brother). She wears her waitress or high school uniform for work and school respectively, whereas her casual clothes are tomboyish streetwear. Her waitress uniform is a white shirt rolled up to her elbows, a black vest, a red tie, and a black skirt down to her lower thighs. On top of that skirt, she also wears a brown skirt that reaches her upper thighs. She also wears tight red leggings. As "Rabbit", she wears a long coat jacket, rabbit mask, and a blonde, or sometimes a pink, wig to conceal her identity. After the Aogiri arc, her hair reaches her shoulders, but her signature bangs remain the same. As a child, she wore dresses and bunny hair-clip on the left side of her bangs, and her hairstyle was much the same. However, her bangs at first were brushed to the side revealing her whole face. After the timeskip, Touka became a beautiful woman that many characters including Ken Kaneki have been left speechless by her attractive appearance. During a negotiation between the CCG and Goat, a ghoul investigator was stunned by Touka’s beauty. She has reverted back to her short bob cut. Her bangs are shorter as it reaches her nose instead of her chin and it is considerably bouncier than her previous bob haircut, in addition, she has dyed her hair a much lighter shade of blue. Touka switched to a more feminine style of clothing. She wears a white wide neck blouse with a black apron over the top for her waitress outfit. When Touka's moving around as a "ghoul", she wears a trench coat, pants and boots. After the Clown Siege, Touka dyed her hair back to its original dark blue color. Touka's personality is initially defined by her duality between rage and kindness, with her character arc centred around that rage fading as well as her kindness coming to the fore. She is inherently kind, but this was repressed due to her losing her father and thus having to survive in the ghoul world from an early age, which required her to be ruthless. As Shuu Tsukiyama notes, she had previously looked more dangerous and cold but has somewhat softened up because of her human life, and continued to do so due to Ken Kaneki's influence, who allowed her to be the kind person she is deep down. She is also rash and reckless mainly due to her abandonment issues, causing her to lose control of her emotions when losing someone close to her, and her insecurities over her ghoulhood, given the dangers associated over simply existing as a ghoul, as well as the necessity to eat humans to survive. She longs to be human and desires to integrate into their society, as shown by her strong connection with the human world. This comes from her father, who taught her to reject her ghoulhood and to live with humans in order to survive, as well as a desire to simply live happily and in peace with her loved ones. She hates her ghoulhood and has low esteem as a result, as shown by her reaction when called beautiful by Kimi Nishino, despite seeing her as a ghoul with a kagune. However these insecurities also cause her to lash out at the world when there's injustice done towards ghouls, particularly when it's done ghouls close to her. This low self esteem is further diminished due to her abandonment issues, saying herself she felt "useless" for being unable to stop her father from getting killed, which she viewed as him prioritizing revenge for her mother over taking care of her and Ayato Kirishima. These issues become worse when Ayato and then Kaneki abandon her, creating and reinforcing a mentality that she's not good enough for the people she loves to stay with her. This low self esteem as well as her abandonment issues results her willing to recklessly throw her life away multiple times before the timeskip, such as during the Anteiku Raid, when she cannot bear the pain of losing someone close to her. Due to her fathers teachings she attempts to conform to the world, having been compared to a bird trapped in a cage within the story itself, but she also cannot accept injustice done towards ghouls due to her insecurities, nor can she bear the pain of losing someone close to her due to her abandonment issues, and lashes out when she cannot suppress this anger, such as during the Doves Emergence arc. She is full of hatred for ghoul investigators, stemming from the fact that her family was torn apart by the CCG and she had to live life as a fugitive. This hatred and rage subsides over time, especially after she kills Kureo Mado out of revenge, realizing he was married afterwards. This lead to her realizing she was only contributing to the cycle of hate and revenge, having likely inflicted the same trauma on someone as the ghoul investigators did on her. After the timeskip, Touka is more openly gentle and warm, following on from her development from before. She has matured during this time, as a consequence of the Anteiku Raid. This can be seen by her being able to better accept loss, due to Renji Yomo teaching her before the timeskip to live while losing things. After continually experiencing loss she adopts a more healthy "live while losing" mentality, in order to come to terms with such a harsh and dangerous world for ghouls, which results in her being far less reckless. She is also less confrontational, having lost Kaneki for years following their confrontation and her losing control of her emotions in the way that she did, which she later regretted. This has also lead to her being more repressive of her emotions, in order to process potential losses in a healthier way, as evident in the 24th Ward where she had to ignore Yoriko Kuroiwa's execution letter, as well the potential deaths of Yomo and Hinami Fueguchi. She has also become accepting of the fact that she loves Kaneki, unlike before where she denies it in embarrassment, which led to her being happy when he gave her the look he used to give Rize Kamishiro and over time after Kaneki regained his memories and lead Goat, she became outright bold and openly professed her feelings for him by revealing how she felt over him isolating her and even going as far as to ask if he was a virgin and in fact even noting she wants to do the deed with him, with her indeed making the move that caused them to consummate their relationship and showing an openly soft and tender side with him. It is her relationship and marriage to Kaneki that provides her with the happiness she always yearned for and helped show that her belief that she wasn't good enough for her loved ones to stay and confide in her was wrong.
