 Tooru Mutsuki (六月 透, Mutsuki Tōru) é um Ghoul Investigador, Quinx e ex membro do Esquadrão Quinx. Atualmente ele é membro do Esquadrão Hachikawa, trabalhando sobre a supervisão de Chuu Hachikawa. 

Ela é conhecida por "Tapa-Olho" por Dr. Shiba e pelo esquadrão Hirako. 

Identidade do SexoEditar

Mutsuki foi criada como uma menina, e seu perfil oficial refere a ele como uma garota, no entando, ele afirmou que teve sensações de desconforto relacionados a viver como uma mulher e não poderia explicar a razão por trás desse sentimentos. Como Tal quando entrou para CCG, ele pediu para viver como um homem. Desde então ele tem vivido com uma identidade totalmente masculino, se vestindo com roupas masculinas, usar banheiros masculinos, e ser referido com pronomes masculinos. 


Tooru é um jovem de pele bronzeada, magro, com cabelos verdes assim como seus olhos, embora seu olho direito é um Kakugan permanentemente ativo. Como resultado ele usa um tapa-olho médico para cobri-lo, mas começa a usar um de couro depois de seu ex-mentor Haise Sasaki o deu de presente de natal. Como a maioria dos investigadores Ghoul, Tooru normalmente usa roupas formal, juntamente com, um casaco branco curto. Ele tem uma grande cicatriz em seu peitoral esquerdo superior e outra em seu lado direito.  Inicialmente, ele usa o cabelo em um penteado bob, mas depois de ser promovido, ele corta-lo em um estilo curto. Enquanto estava sendo mantido preso em cativeiro por Torso, todos os seus membros foram cortados, ao longo dos próximos dias seus cabelos ganharam uma cor mais clara. Após recuperar as memorias de seu passado, seu cabelo cresceu até no ombro e seu cabelo ficou branco. Os membros de Tooru voltaram a ser como era antes.  Quando Tooru interveio na luta entre Takizawa e Amon, ele usava a armadura padrão da CCG e seu kakugan já não estava em um estado permanente ativado.  Como um pré-adolescente, ele usava o cabelo em um corte de cabelo longo e elegante. Seus olhos parecem ter sido de cor mais escura, em contraste com a forma como eles são mostrados como um adulto.  


Tooru is kind with a gentle heart and seems to be shy with little self-confidence. Having a constant case of Anemia, ironically, Mutsuki feels repulsive when he comes into contact with blood. Because of this anxiety, he faces discouragement as a ghoul investigator, to the point where he feels as though he isn’t even needed for the job. He expresses frustration with his own weakness, feeling anger at his lack of ability compared to his comrades. When not working, he is shown to enjoy reading books and is the one often left to relate information to Haise Sasaki. As such, he is shown to be a reliable and hard-working individual, following orders in contrast to the more troublesome or lazy members of his team. Though lacking in confidence, he shows a strong desire to help others and does not hesitate to place himself at risk to protect the innocent.

A flashback reveals him to have been born female, but unable to reconcile his feelings of discomfort etowards his birth sex. As such, he has began living as a man and uses highly-masculine personal pronouns, even when such informal language is not socially appropriate. It contrasts strongly with his gentle personality, and his consistent respect towards others. He shows great respect to Sasaki and Dr. Shiba, as well as other Investigators even when treated poorly by them. He is also a confidant to his superior, as he always reassures him when he is feeling down, thus showing a great fondness and admiration for Sasaki.



Tooru Mutsuki grew up in an ordinary family, with an older brother. When he was in Junior High, his family was killed in a Ghoul attack and he was left in the care of the CCG -- like most orphans whose families were slain by ghouls, he was sent to the Junior Academy to be raised as an Investigator. Though born as a female, he admitted to the officials that he had never felt comfortable as such and made the request that he be allowed to live and be referred to as a man. Following this, he adopted his current identity and spent the next several years under the organization's care.

His time at the Junior Academy was not a happy one, however. He was bullied by his peers, who called him names and spread rumors about him killing cats or even his own family.

Torso InvestigationEditar

Mutsuki is first glimpsed studying, and expresses confusion over the work. He resolves to ask his teacher, Sasaki about it the next day.

He is next seen visiting Dr. Shiba to have his blood drawn, as he has been suffering from a bout of anemia. He admits to feeling unfit as an Investigator, but hopes to at least be useful to his comrades. The doctor and patient briefly discuss his teammates, who he feels simply do whatever they want without regards to others. As he departs the office, he runs into members of Take Hirako's team and is intimidated into apologizing to them before rushing off. The other Investigators briefly discuss him, expressing negative opinions of the Quinx Squad.

Later that day, he meets with Sasaki to report the outcome of his recent investigation with Saiko Yonebayashi. A woman had heard growls in her neighborhood and feared that it would be a Ghoul, but Mutsuki reports that it turned out to be a stray dog. He then reports that Kuki Urie and Ginshi Shirazu had gone off on their own to investigate the Ghoul known as Torso, prompting his superior to worry for their safety. The pair locate and speak to Shimoguchi, requesting that he shares information on the Torso case. The other Investigator refuses and humiliates Sasaki in front of his subordinate, though Mutsuki is quick to reassure his mentor that he "looked cool". They are later able to track down Urie's whereabouts, arriving just in time to assist in the capture of a Ghoul. However, an argument breaks out between Sasaki and Urie, and the team again split up.[2]

In a meeting with Dr. Shiba, Sasaki discusses the results of Mutsuki's latest tests. His RC levels are found to just barely be above those of a human, and he is noted to be unable to control his Kakugan. As a result, they worry that he won't be useful for the primary purpose of the quinx project.[3]

That evening, Mutsuki greets Sasaki when he returns to the team's shared home and relays the whereabouts of the other members. Sasaki cooks dinner for him, expressing concern on his poor health and watching as Mutsuki eats the meal alone.

Akira Mado's declaration that her team will discover Torso's identity in a single month places greater pressure on the squad, leading to further tension among their ranks. While Urie and Shirazu investigate on their own, Mutsuki is recruited to help Sasaki in his own investigation -- he expresses concern that the other has lost it, when he declares he will show them all. The next morning, the pair head to Cochlea in order to speak to Donato Porpora and gain his assistance in the case. The Ghoul briefly turns his attention to Mutsuki, threatening and frightening him as he graphically describes his desire to eat the young man. After they depart the prison, Mutsuki wonders why such a dangerous Ghoul has been allowed to live and mentions the horrible look in his eyes.

Based upon the information provided by Donato, Mutsuki and his superior spend the following weeks gathering information about the previous victims. From interviewing people that knew the victims, they realize that Torso has been targeting women that have surgical scars and connect his hunting grounds to several hospitals. With time running out, they make the decision to split up and canvas the hospitals at the center of Torso's territory. On the 25th day of the investigation, Mutsuki visits a plastic surgery clinic and witnesses a taxi driver watching a woman with a predatory look. Though ordered not to do anything alone, he rushes over to the taxi and cuts in front of the woman. He feels a growing sense of unease, but attempts to make small talk with the driver. However, the driver suddenly turns on him and reveals himself to be a Ghoul, attacking Mutsuki while demanding to know "which" he is. The driver climbs into the backseat, and tears open Mutsuki's shirt to reveal his bound breasts.[4]

Ficheiro:Mutsuki vs. Torso.png
Torso is excited as he finds out that Mutsuki is genetically a woman, and becomes excited upon seeing the scars on his chest. He manages to get his Quinque out and briefly fights back, but is overpowered and given a serious beating. Before Torso can do more, he notices Urie and Shirazu approaching the taxi on a motorcycle -- he takes off with an injured Mutsuki in the backseat, prompting a chase. Assistance from police units finally puts the chase to an end, and his teammates begin to fight Torso as Mutsuki climbs out of the taxi. He struggles to unleash his kagune, but is unable to do so and becomes frustrated at his weakness compared to the others. [5] During the Quinx Squad's battle with Serpent, Mutsuki notes that they are no match for him, and therefore advises Urie and Shirazu to retreat. [6]After Serpent escaped and Haise was shot down by Akira, Tooru stood by as he watched Haise received Rc suppressants. [7]

Nutcracker InvestigationEditar

In the Quinx's living quarters, Mutsuki grew furious when Urie insulted Sasaki by calling him a "ghoul." Later on, Tooru advised Shirazu to apologize to Urie for attacking him.[8]

Mutsuki is then seen alongside Shirazu and Sasaki discussing their new target Nutcracker. Tooru then informs Shirazu that Saiko would be back at nine o' clock that night. Upon entering the cafe ":re," Mutsuki becomes puzzled at the fact that Sasaki uses the term "Kagune Nose" to represent his capability of smelling the coffee which the cafe made. [9]

After the group leave the cafe to go home, Shirazu expresses concern over their mentor's odd behavior. Mutsuki agrees and clenches his hands in his trench coat anxiously, but drops the subject. Back at home, they find that Urie has returned and head upsets to confront Saiko. While the other two break down the door and berate her for neglecting her duties, Mutsuki fruitlessly attempts to repair the broken door.

The next morning, the team prepares to head to the 13th Ward to meet with Juuzou Suzuya and his team. While Shirazu tries to wake up Saiko, Mutsuki waits with Sasaki in the car. He begins to ask him something, but decides against it. During the meeting, he continues to give his mentor concerned looks as the events the previous day are recalled.

While they wait for their orders, Mutsuki and Shirazu comment about their waitress being very cute. Shirazu agrees with him, prompting him to tease him over having a crush on Akira. When their coffee arrives, he compliments the delicious taste happily. As they drink their coffee, Sasaki begins to cry, confusing both of his subordinates and leading to them to worry about his odd behavior. [10]

After leaving the cafe, Mutsuki wonders what could possibly have Haise spacing out all the time. At the Quinx living quarters, Tooru informs the squad of Saiko's arrival, and is later surprised when Urie encouraged Saiko to start doing her work. The following day, Mutsuki accompanies Urie and Sasaki to visit the Suzuya Squad concerning the Nutcracker Investigation, where he once again notices Sasaki being inattentive to the discussion.

When he expresses confusion over Juuzou's arrival and unusual method of greeting Sasaki, Hanbee Abara explains the history between the two leaders. Shirazu finally arrives to the meeting, and surprises everyone by carrying a still-sleeping Saiko on his back. Mutsuki praises him for actually managing to bring Saiko to the CCG.


The Quinx Squad begin their investigation into Nutcracker by observing her at a local cafe, attempting to use their heightened senses to spy on her conversation. When Saiko won't take the mission seriously, he plays referee between her and a highly-annoyed Shirazu. Unfortunately, Shirazu knocks over a glass and draws attention to himself, causing their target to leave earlier than expected.

Later that evening, he listens to Shirazu's concerns about being a poor leader. Mutsuki reassures him that he's doing well, and reveals that Urie lied to Saiko about the details of their contract. He suggests they keep this to themselves for now, and puzzles over Sasaki allowing Saiko to neglect her work all the time. [11]

The investigation uncovers an upcoming Auction, and the team decide to use the "ingredient" list in order to get closer to Nutcracker. For this purpose, Sasaki orders the team to go undercover at a nightclub, disguised as a group of young women. Mutsuki is extremely uncomfortable with this turn of events, and is overcome with anxiety at the thought of strange men staring at him. He ends up accepting a drink from a waiter, and quickly becomes intoxicated. This loss of inhibitions leads him to approach Nutcracker directly, complimenting her hair and chatting with her until she offers him a part-time job -- actually the trick being used to lure victims to the auction.


Having completed their mission objective, he rushes back to the others to report it. Sasaki attempts to berate him over drinking, but he ignores this and announces his intention to celebrate by dancing. Shirazu and Saiko join him, while Sasaki watches them from a distance. [12]

With the time and location for the Auction obtained, Matsuri Washuu meets with Sasaki and Suzuya to discuss the operation. He decides to use Mutsuki as bait for the operation, ordering Sasaki to send him in undercover and alone. Suzuya intervenes, offering to accompany him undercover so that there will be a second person inside during the operation. Sasaki is relieved and entrusts Mutsuki's safety to Suzuya.

Later that night, Sasaki struggles to maintain his composure while informing Mutsuki of his role in the operation. [13]

Mutsuki is seen being trained by Sasaki along with his teammates. Sasaki was disappointed with the results of their attack against him as they were armed while he was not. [14]



A week prior to the Auction, Mutsuki meets with Suzuya to prepare for their infiltration. To train him, Suzuya demonstrates how to juggle knives while attacking at the same time, something Mutsuki does not feel he could ever accomplish. He wonders whether Suzuya is ever afraid of being injured by his knives, and admits to being afraid after seeing Sasaki lose control of his powers. He clarifies that he does not actually fear his mentor, but rather fears suffering the same fate. Suzuya advises him that fear can be a good or bad thing, depending on his ability to overcome his own weaknesses. Mutsuki takes these words to heart.

On the day of the Auction, many Investigators gather in preparation for the operation. Mutsuki, again disguised in women's clothing, is joined by a similarly-disguised Suzuya. The Quinx see him off, and the pair meet with Nutcracker to head to the auction site. [15]


Some time later, Mutsuki awakens confused and disoriented. He drifts in and out of consciousness, but recalls that some sort of gas was leaked into the vehicle during their trip. Once he fully recovers, he attempts to contact CCG with a small device but cannot reach anyone. He realizes that he might be out of range, and has no idea whether anyone knows his location.

Eventually, Nutcracker comes to fetch him and roughly throws him onto stage. The Auctioneer, Uta, announces that this is a last-minute addition and the asking price would normally be 1 million -- however, this is not the case. A spotlight is focused on Mutsuki as he struggles to regain his bearings.

Realizing that he has become merchandise for the Auction, Mutsuki's thoughts begin to race. Uta makes a show of getting into his personal space, and notes his unusual scent before stealing his eyepatch -- exposing his active Kakugan to a shocked audience. Mutsuki cowers and tries to hide his eye, but the shock of a rare One-Eyed Ghoul being offered for sale sends the crowd of Ghouls into a frenzy of excitement. The starting price is set at Ten Million, but rapidly climbs as Mutsuki quickly begins to panic. His thoughts become a chaotic mess, alternating between thoughts of fighting and wanting to be saved.

Just then, Uta touches him on the shoulder and whispers something to him. Mutsuki falls silent, and meekly sits until the fierce bidding war between Kanae von Rosewald and Big Madam concludes in the Madam's victory. He is sold for a record 200 Million Yen, and escorted away by Nutcracker. The Ghoul is so delighted over how valuable he turned out to be, that she gives him celebratory kiss on the check.


As the operation begins, it is noted that Mutsuki has failed to contact them, leading to speculation that his transmitter was broken. With the auction house in chaos, Nutcracker attempts to make off with her "200 million", drawing the attention of Karao in the process. However, Mutsuki manages to kick his captor down and escape, taking refuge in a supply closet to gather his thoughts. He thinks back to Uta's words, recalling how he had despaired upon being told the mission was a failure and no one would come to rescue him. He tries to make sense of this, realizing that someone knew about the operation but apparently allowed it to happen anyway. But before he can think about this further, he is greeted by Kanae -- who has decided to steal the "prize" for his master.

Cornered, he recognizes the Ghoul as one of the people involved in the bidding war. Kanae decides that he needs to confirm Mutsuki's taste, striking him hard enough to draw blood and licking the drops from his hands. Just like Kaneki, the taste of his blood proves to be incredible, bringing Kanae to tears at having finally found the unique flavor for his master. But before he can attack Mutsuki again, Saeki arrives and begins beating him. Frightened by the violence and recognizing him as Torso, Mutsuki tries to flee the room -- a desperate, wounded Kanae impales him through the stomach with his kagune to keep him from escaping.

Some time later, Mutsuki stumbles down a hallway while bleeding profusely. He wonders whether his wounds will even heal, and recalls how he was bullied at the Junior Academy in the past. Concluding that his life has been miserable, he thinks about meeting his family again. His wanderings eventually lead him into a hallway filled with the bodies of dead Investigators.

Relationships Editar

Haise Sasaki Editar

Mutsuki looks up to Haise as his superior, and even views him as a close friend. Though he may be timid around other Ghoul Investigators, Mutsuki is often very comfortable around Haise. Unlike the other members of the Quinx Squad, he is very loyal, to the point where he prefers to accompany Sasaki on a mission, rather than to do it independently without his mentor’s consent. Tooru is also shown to have concern for Sasaki’s well-being, but would not hesitate once an order is given. He respects Sasaki to a great extent, as seen when he becomes furious after witnessing Urie insult Haise. Tooru admitted that he is afraid after seeing Haise losing control,but not that fear is not of his superior rather it's a fear of losing control the same way.

Kuki Urie Editar

Mutsuki and Urie are often not on good terms, due to their differences in approach towards Sasaki. He often grows worried whenever there is a dispute between Urie and Haise; and even becomes angry to see Urie insult Sasaki. However, Mutsuki is still somewhat concerned for Urie, as shown when he insisted that they retreat during the battle against Serpent, and even asked Shirazu to apologize for kicking Urie. Urie is the only one to know Mutsuki's secret.

Ginshi Shirazu Editar

They have a close friendship, frequently joking around and spending their free time together. Mutsuki's more gentle and observant personality works well with Shirazu's more aggressive nature, making them good friends that are able to balance each other out. He frequently acts as a mediator between Shirazu and the others when he loses his temper, helping to smooth out disagreements before they can cause problems within the team. He also serves as Shirazu's primary confidante after being promoted to Squad Leader, listening to his worries and offering reassurances or advice. Shirazu shows a protective streak towards him, while Mutsuki compares himself negatively to his stronger comrade in terms of fighting ability and powers.

Saiko Yonebayashi Editar

The two have worked together on an investigation in the past, and seem to be on good terms. When her actions cause friction in the group, Saiko looks to him to act as a mediator and defend her from Shirazu's wrath. Mutsuki expresses concern over how her actions have caused them all stress, and wonders if there is a larger reason for their mentor allowing Saiko to slack off so much. According to an omake, he spies on Saiko's twitter account to find out when she's ditching work and is often the one to pass news about her to others.

Karao Saeki Editar

The murderous Ghoul attacked and attempted to kidnap him, resulting in the Ghoul's identity being exposed. Mutsuki noted that Torso's expression was that of a predator, and had an instant sense of unease upon seeing him from a distance. His intuition proved to be correct, and he was forced to fight for his life against the Ghoul. Mutsuki expresses distress at his own weakness, having to be rescued by his comrades and unable to help them fight. Since their encounter, Torso has become obsessed with him and shifts from hysteria to extreme violence when Mutsuki is in danger.

Powers and AbilitiesEditar

Like all members of the Quinx Squad, Mutsuki has received preliminary training in combat and investigative procedures. His body has been surgically modified with the intention of granting him abilities similar to a Ghoul. However, he is unable to use his Kagune and lacks the superior physical abilities of his peers. He does, however, show a decent level of regeneration. A short time after being stabbed through his arms by a kagune, he is shown using them without significant impairment. He is also shown to have exceptional eyesight, able to make out details from long distances even with one eye normally covered.

  • Bikaku Kagune: Thus far, Mutsuki has been unable to use his kagune. As such, its exact form and abilities are unknown.
  • Ifraft and Abksol These Quinque are a pair of daggers made from Rinkaku kagune, and wielded together. Though they lack range, in close quarters they are shown to be extremely sharp and capable of easily slicing through a Ghoul's flesh and bone.


  • Mutsuki has numerous traits in common with Kaneki at the beginning of the original series, including his meek personality and difficulty controlling his powers.
  • Dr. Shiba refers to him as "Eyepatch-kun", the alias once given to Kaneki.
  • His kakugan is permanently activated. [1]
  • Mutsuki has a RC level of 655, which is the lowest compared to the other members of Quinx Squad.
  • He dislikes rare cooked meat.
  • He is able to eat normal food due to his low RC level.
  • In contrast to his gentle personality, Mutsuki uses the personal pronoun "Ore", usually reserved for male characters that are tough or aggressive.
  • When nervous or upset, he has a tendency to grab onto the fabric covering his lap and wring his hands.
  • He is Ambidextrous, and one of the few Investigators shown dual-wielding. [1]
  • According to Shirazu, he is the only member of the Quinx that can cook when Sasaki is unavailable. [15]
  • Mutsuki is associated with the Tarot cards The Wheel of Fortune, The Chariot, and Death.

Quotes Editar

  • To Dr. Shiba: "I'm hopeless...ugh. Seeing blood makes me..." [2]
  • To unnamed CCG officials: "I don't really know why, but for a long time now I've only had unpleasant feelings about living as a woman. I want to live as a man from here on out." [5]
