At age 26, Toki was a tall woman with long dark (light green in the anime) hair that was kept back with the exception of two strands in front. She wore a flower ornament with a chain of pearls on the right side of her hair. She also wore a short pink kimono with crescent moons resembling the Kozuki Family's symbol on the bottom. She held a strong resemblance to her daughter. A few years later, she received a scar on her left thigh from an arrow shot defending her children.
Toki was a friendly and caring woman, as she took care of Oden when he washed ashore on the island she was on to repay him for scaring away human traffickers. Her friendliness could make her somewhat naive, as she went with some human traffickers under the impression that they would take her to Wano, although she did manage to quickly expose their ruse. When she came to 30 years before the present, she showed an excited attitude at going to Wano. After she married Oden, Oden's retainers came to possess tremendous respect for her. She was also humble as she worked with the citizens of Kuri and never boasted about being the wife of a daimyo.
Toki first met Oden when she was confronted by a pirate crew led by Karma. She later took care of him when he passed out due to his injuries. Soon after, she joined Oden on his adventures with the Whitebeard Pirates. Despite being from the past, she married Oden and finally settled down with him in Wano Country. When she had fallen ill, she encouraged Oden to continue his journey without her. When Oden returned to Wano after completing his journey, Toki was overjoyed to see him again. Once he learned that Toki got injured protecting Momonosuke, Oden was furious and went after Orochi, ignoring Toki's pleas. After Oden was executed, Toki used her Devil Fruit powers to send Momonosuke and four of the Nine Red Scabbards to the future for a chance to fulfill Oden's dream of opening the borders of Wano Country while she remained behind to meet her end, choosing to join her husband in the afterlife.
Toki loved her children, when the Beasts Pirates set fire to the Kuri Castle to kill the last Kozuki descendants, Toki held Momonosuke and Hiyori close to her to keep them safe. Momonosuke deeply mourned his mother's death being driven to tears when recalling both his parents' demise, while Hiyori was so traumatized that she did not speak for a long time.
She met Whitebeard the day after she met Oden. Soon, she asked his permission to stay on his ship, which Whitebeard allowed. However, it is unknown if she was ever engaged in piracy while she traveled with the crew. Some time later, she revealed her age and origin from the past only to be laughed at by the crew.
Nine Red Scabbards
|— Toki entrusting Momonosuke to Kin'emon.|
Toki is deeply respected by the Nine Red Scabbards, after Oden's death, Kin'emon, Kanjuro, Raizo, Kikunojo and Kawamatsu braved through the burning Kuri Castle to rescue her and her children. When Kin'emon declared their resolve to realize Oden's will by overthrowing both Kaidou and Orochi as well as opening Wano Country's borders to the world, Toki smiled in silent gratitude and as a final sign of trust, she entrusted Momonosuke to Kin'emon and Hiyori to Kawamatsu.
Wano Country Citizens
Toki is also well respected by the Wano Country citizens as well as Kozuki Family retainers. Many samurai such as Jibuemon wholeheartedly trust her prophecy about nine samurais overthrowing Kaidou and Orochi in twenty years.
Abilities and Powers
- Further information: Toki Toki no Mi
Toki ate the Toki Toki no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allowed her to send herself and others forward in time. She could send herself or others years and even decades into the future. However, going back to the past is impossible.
This power allowed her to escape from dangerous situations by going forward to a point when the danger is long past. Because of this, she ended up traveling a grand total of 800 years into the future. The last time she used it before her death was sending her son and some of her husband's retainers two decades into the future to save them from the Beasts Pirates.
Toki carried a katana and pulled it out when confronting Karma and his gang, but seemed to have no intention of using it against them as she had planned to escape by traveling into the future; thus, it is unclear if she had any swordsmanship skill.
Birth and Time-Travel
Toki was born around 830 years ago before the present time, which was during the Void Century. Despite being part of the Amatsuki daimyo family, she did not know about her homeland. After consuming the Toki Toki no Mi, she traveled forward in time multiple times whenever she was in danger.
Journey with Pirates
She came to the time 30 years before the present day and met a pirate crew led by Karma, who said they would help her get to Wano Country. However, she quickly realized that they were actually human traffickers and confronted them as she prepared to escape through time again. However, Karma's gang ran away after seeing Kozuki Oden (with a massively swollen body), whom they mistook for a sea demon, walk ashore. Toki treated Oden's wounds and the next day, they were confronted by Karma. However, Karma was then defeated by Whitebeard, who took Toki and Oden aboard his ship, where they sailed the New World with the Whitebeard Pirates.
During the voyage, Toki married Oden and on their second year on the Moby Dick, Toki gave birth to a son, Momonosuke, followed by a daughter, Hiyori, two years later. After Oden encountered Gol D. Roger and decided to assist him with his final journey, Toki then boarded the Oro Jackson with her husband and children.
Sometime after the Roger Pirates' visit to Fish-Man Island, Toki became ill because of stress accumulated throughout her journey. When the crew reached Wano Country, Toki forced Oden to continue with his adventures until the end or else she would divorce him. Toki then stayed at Wano with her children.
Life in Wano
After she recovered from her illness, Toki worked with the citizens of Kuri and she and her children became beloved figures of the Kuri region. Around half a year before Oden finished with his voyage, a group of Beasts Pirates attacked Kuri Castle while Kin'emon and some of his fellow retainers went to the Flower Capital to confront Kurozumi Orochi. The Beasts Pirates were driven away by Kawamatsu and Inuarashi, but Toki was injured while she was protecting Momonosuke. After Oden returned to Wano, Toki and her children welcomed him back. However, once Oden heard about what happened to Toki, she tried to calm him, but could not stop him as he charged towards the Flower Capital.
After Oden failed to kill Orochi, Oden's family still loved him despite him acting like a fool and losing the respect of most of Wano's people for the next five years.
Before Oden left Kuri to fight Kaidou, he gave Toki a letter. While Oden and the Scabbards fought the Beasts Pirates in the Udon region, Toki and her children stayed in Oden Castle while they were guarded by Shimotsuki Yasuie and his men. After Oden was defeated and captured, Toki visited him while he was imprisoned in the Flower Capital. Oden handed his swords to Toki and asked her to pass them on to their children. On the day of Oden's execution, Momonosuke asked his mother why his life was in danger. Toki explained that it was because he would one day lead Wano.
After Toki received the news of Oden's death, she read the letter that Oden gave to her before tearing it apart. Toki was in Kuri Castle with Momonosuke and Hiyori when Kaidou, who was working with Orochi, set it ablaze. When the retainers returned to the castle, Toki used her Devil Fruit powers to send Momonosuke, Kin'emon, Kanjuro, Raizo, and Kikunojo 20 years forward in time, but chose to stay behind and meet her end.
|— Toki's Prophecy|
After Kawamatsu escaped with Hiyori, Toki fled the castle on a horse and headed to Bakura Town. When she arrived at the giant torii gate, she spoke a prophecy with the burning castle behind her. Her final moments were witnessed by the citizens of Bakura Town, but also members of the Beasts Pirates who readied their guns and shot her. Toki then collapsed to the ground and died.
Toki's prophecy to Wano Country inspired strong hope in the followers and retainers of the Kozuki Family and an intense fear in Kurozumi Orochi, which they interpreted that in twenty years, nine samurai would exact vengeance on Orochi in Oden's name and open the borders of Wano Country.
Ironically, Orochi would be the one to take Toki's prophecy the most seriously, fearing the day when the followers of the Kozuki Family will rise up to take his life. He would spend the next twenty years doing everything in his power to prevent any chance of this happening. Toki's prophecy would be partially fufilled when six of the Nine Red Scabbards beheaded Orochi after the latter lost Kaidou's protection and support.
Anime and Manga Differences
In the anime, Toki is shown drawing a sword in an attempt to protect Momonosuke and Hiyori from Kaidou at Kuri Castle, before the latter swiftly slams her out of his way. She is also shot with an arrow in the middle of her final speech, but manages to finish it before being shot to death.
- "Toki" is another name for the Japanese crested ibis, which follows Oda's tradition of naming female characters after birds, as well as the Japanese word for "time", matching the name and ability of her Devil Fruit.
- Toki was the only known female member of the Roger Pirates.
- The "nine shadows" Toki referenced in her prophecy did not entirely correspond to the Nine Red Scabbards, despite the assumptions of most people who heard the prophecy. In reality, while eight of the Scabbards have worked to fulfill the prophecy, the ninth Scabbard, Kanjuro, wound up being a spy for the enemy Kurozumi Family, and the ninth "shadow" ended up being Izou, another retainer of Oden who was not present during the Legendary Hour.
