Despite her advanced age, Tobera has the appearance of a young teenage girl (this is presumably related to her Peach Blessing). She has short dark hair, with two locks of hair tied up in braids. She is always seen wearing a sailor-style schoolgirl uniform and wears a hairband. Tobera has an extremely strict and domineering outlook on life. As head of the Azuma family, she believes that all members of the Azuma family must prove their strength or else be put down to avoid bringing shame to the family. This attitude as disseminated to the other members of the family, including her children and grandchildren.
