Touka Toudou is the current Student Council President as well as the strongest student in Hagun Academy known as Raikiri prior to her defeat at the hands of Ikki Kurogane during the finals of Hagun Academy's matches for the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival.
A bespectacled young woman with orange eyes and, long light brown hair tied in two large braids. She's also noted to be very buxom, slender and has petit waistline albeit a very curvaceous figure. Touka is usually seen wearing her Hagun Academy uniform.
Befitting of her status as the student council president, Touka has a serious personality. Touka is also shown to enjoy fighting, as shown when she had gotten excited over the thought of fighting a strong opponent. She likewise has complete confidence and pride in her abilities.
Outside of battle, Touka is very motherly and thoughtful but can be very uptight. At times she would even treat fellow council member and juniors like children. She usually gets worked up when somebody is sick and tries to get them better as fast as possible. The reason for this is because her parents died after getting ill. Utakata notes that it was because of her motherly personality that Touka is seen as a hero to all the people at the Wakaba house, which, according to him, is where her strength comes from.
Touka participated in the 61st Seven Stars Sword Art Festival, reaching the semi-finals before she was defeated by Yuudai Moroboshi. It is also revealed that Touka had studied under Torajirou Nangou, the rival of Ryoma Kurogane.
Raikiri vs Lorelei Edit
Touka is first seen in the twelfth selection match, going against Shizuku. After easily countering every long-range magical attack Shizuku fired at her, as the fight at the time was only equally matched due to Shizuku's outstanding magic control and fast-thinking, Touka uses Trackless Step to quickly gain the upper hand, dealing several injuries on Shizuku while not suffering any injuries in return. Although Shizuku managed to corner her briefly by trapping her in a thick cloud of mist using Byakuya Kekka, Touka instead uses her attempts to take her down using Hisuijin by unleashing Raikiri, instantly defeating Shizuku, therefore winning the match without a scratch on her.
Touka is then seen carrying loads of documents where she accidentally falls and loses her glasses. Ikki helps her pick up the papers, along with Stella. Touka then invites the latter to the student council room, which they accept.
The group gets to the room, only to find that it was a mess. The student council quickly cleans up the room, and Touka invites in Ikki and Stella for some tea. Kanata interrupts and reminds Touka of what the director had told them. Kanata further explains to Ikki and Stella, that they are having problems with a giant, in the area of Okutama. Ikki and Stella decide to help out, to which Touka is thankful for.
Incident of Okutama Edit
Touka then goes to Okutama with her fellow students in order to investigate the giant incident. Splitting into a group of two people per team, with Touka grouping with Utakata. She and Utakata then arrive in time to rescue Ikki and Stella who were cornered by their enemies.
Touka and the rest of the group had then arrived at the training camp where they meet Mamoru Akaza, who take Ikki to the ethics committee after it was publicized that Ikki and Stella were in a relationship.
Siege, Reunion and Trap Edit
Touka was then seen, along with Utakata, talking with Shizuku in the student council room, and had asked if Shizuku could talk to Ikki about not participating in the match against her, as she had known about Ikki's current condition. Shizuku, however, did not know how to answer and had given it some thought over the night.
Touka had then fought, a very poorly conditioned Ikki, but was defeated by Ikki after she had tried to match Ikki's swing against her Raikiri. She was then seen at the ceremony, where she had given Ikki, the new captain of the team, the school's flag wishing him luck in the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival.
Training Camp and Scheme Edit
Touka had participated in the training camp for Hagun Academy's festival participants, as a coach. She had trained with Stella through many battles and defeated her three times, however, Stella had also defeated her three times as well.
Akatsuki Strikes Edit
Touka, while on the bus back to Hagun Academy, learns of Nagi Arisuin's betrayal and decides to leave the decision of whether to trust him or not to Ikki, the captain of Hagun's team. Ikki decides to trust Arisuin for Shizuku's sake.They arrive at a destroyed Hagun Academy but are able to quickly strike down the attackers, with the help of Arisuin's betrayal. However, Arisuin is soon stabbed in the back multiple times by Amane, and the true Akatsuki members reveal themselves, also revealing the ones that were struck down were simply wooden dolls. After Ikki, Shizuku, and Arisuin leave Stella had lost a power match to Ouma who was about to strike her down, but Stella was saved by Touka who proceeds to knock her unconscious as she was clearly not ready to fight against an opponent like Ouma. Touka then leads the attack against Akatsuki with the other members of the student council. It only took but a few moments of conflict for all of the student council members, except Touka, to be taken down. Touka then faced off against Ouma by herself, but he proved to be far too strong being able to withstand a continuous Raikiri for ten whole minutes. Touka then decides to use Takemikazuchi, which put all her power into one attack. This however proved to be more harmful to her as her shoulder was broken, however, she was able to land a small cut on Ouma. Ouma then proceeds to strike Touka down with his own sword causing a comatose state to Touka.
Battle of Kings Edit
Touka eventually wakes from her comatose state to find Kanata awaiting for her conscious return. Touka then turns to see the festival had already begun and Ikki's match against Yuudai, the current Seven Star Sword King as well as the person who had beaten her. Touka watches and analyzes Ikki and Yuudai's match, watching as Ikki defeats Yuudai in their bout.
Conclusion of the First Match Edit
Later, after Utakata woke up in the hospital, he frantically starts warning Touka that she must warn the Hagun Team about Amane Shinomiya. Utakata tells that Amane's ability is to change fate. Touka informs Team Hagun, but they reveal they have already found out about Amane's powers.
Pair of Dragons' Rivalry Edit
Touka later arrives at the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival, along with Kanata, to watch the remaining matches. They watch the semifinal match between Stella and Ouma, with Stella overpowering Ouma with her new Noble Art, Dragon Spirit.
Rising Spirit Edit
Prior to the finals of the Festival, Touka and many other students help Ikki to train for the finals, where he will face Stella. Touka fights Ikki in a mock battle. Though Ikki seems to initially have the edge, having faster swordsmanship, Touka turns the battle around with her new technique Inazuma, which allows her to greatly increase the speed of her swings. However, as Touka attempts to finish the battle with Raikiri, Ikki kicks a rock into her scabbard, which causes Touka to be unable to use the technique. Ikki then uses the opportunity to slash her, defeating her.
Tournament FinalEditTouka and the student council watch the finals match between Ikki and Stella, with Ikki winning the match and becoming the Seven Stars Sword King. They later attend the awards ceremony.
The Festival is Over Edit
Touka attends the celebration party and she is seen talking with Yuudai Moroboshi, about their future plans.

Trackless Step (抜き足, Nukiashi): This technique combines the user's breath control and footwork at the same time to decrease the distance from the user and the target in an instant, to which Touka has been seen using it many times in a battle. This technique does not actually accelerate the user's movements, but by making one's movement difficult to perceive as dangerous and seeping into the opponent's rhythm, the opponent becomes unable to react until too late. Due to her inexperience, Touka's Trackless Step, although deadly, is a far cry from Nene's Trackless Step technique.

- Shippu Jinrai (疾風迅雷, lit. Lightning Speed): Touka's Noble Art, by stimulating her muscles with the power of lightning, Touka can increase her performance to its limit.
- Takemikazuchi: A technique that clads her body in an electromagnetic field and speeds her to extraordinary speeds, lunging her sword at an opponent with very fast speeds.
- Inazuma (稲妻, Lightning): By creating a magnetic field around her, Touka is able to swing her sword at extraordinary speeds, utilizing electromagnetic attraction and repulsion. The technique allows her to block attacks, she normally couldn't. It was originally planned as a countermeasure to Yuudai Moroboshi's Houkiboshi.
