Origami Tobiichi (鳶一 折紙 Tobiichi Origami?) is one of the main female protagonist of the Date A Live series. She is a highly intelligent classmate of Shido who is athletic, "beautiful", and the most famous person in Shido's school.
Origami is a top student in her school both in terms of academics and sports. Of course, none of the student body and facility members know that she is a member of the AST with a few exceptions unknown to her. Origami is a very skilled wizard but can lose herself in her emotions when it comes to dealing with Spirits in combat.
For unknown reasons, Origami is romantically interested in Shido. Her devotion towards him causes her to develop stalking habits such as sniffing his gym clothes. Shido is also the only person not related to any military institutions who knows that Origami is part of AST.
After being transformed into a Spirit by Phantom, she realizes that Phantom is the Spirit that made Kotori into a Spirit. She concludes that Phantom probably killed her parents on the same day and travels to the past with the help of Kurumi to save them. She attacked Phantom soon after, but finds out that their battle caused the attack that killed her parents. She then realized that the enemy who killed her parents was herself all along. The realization pushed her to the abyss of despair, creating the negative emotions that caused her to inverse as the time traveling ended.
Origami has the appearance of a young, attractive female with blue eyes, and short, silvery-white hair arranged in a bob cut with three hair-clips in the right part of her hair. After becoming a Spirit, the color of her eyes turned from blue, to light blue and white. In the new timeline, Origami is initially shown with much longer hair reaching down to her waist, before cutting it back down to its usual length after having her Spirit powers sealed. She usually wears the Raizen High girl uniform like her female classmates when at school. Origami's height is stated to be 152cm, and her three sizes are B75/W55/H79.
In her AST Combat Wiring Suit, Origami's appearance is more fierce. Her hair clips are not worn, instead a pair of sensors are attached to her hair with armor covering her from her shoulders to her hands, as well as a part of her body and legs except for her thighs. Her chest is seen at the top of the transparent suit that reveals her belly.
Origami's Astral Dress resembles a wedding dress, reflecting her childhood dream of wanting to be a cute bride. In this form, she wears a golden crown with a white veil attached to it. She has a white bow with a gem attached to her neck. Additionally, there are gold extensions attached to both her hips and forearms. The edges of her skirt fold together like flower petals, while the tips of her skirt are also gold in color.
Old Timeline Edit
Origami is a person that rarely openly talks with other people unless needed with only a few exceptions such as Shido Itsuka and Tohka Yatogami. She isn't a shy person, but more of an unsocial type of person.
She can be a bit reckless or aggressive if she has a goal or purpose to fulfill, she's also willing to do something someone else wouldn't to accomplish such goals as shown when she did everything Shido asked of her when he was trying to get her to not like him which shocked everyone around her.
Due to a Spirit killing her parents 5 years ago, Origami has harbored an intense hatred and hostility towards all spirits, as whenever she sees a spirit, she loses all of her common sense and tries to kill it any way she could possibly can. This hatred is shown to be strong enough that she was willing to kill Kotori despite the fact she knew she was Shido's sister, and only stopped because he pleaded for her to not kill Kotori, and told her about Phantom's existence.
As the series progressed, Origami has shown a growing desire to obtain power. This eventually caused her to join DEM, and later, after she was defeated, to accept a Sephira Crystal that turned her into a Spirit.
Although disgusted that she became what she had always despised, Origami was somewhat satisfied that she finally gained the power to fight evenly against Spirits. She thus decided that she would become the Spirit that kills the other Spirits, and then would end her own life when her job was done, but the event caused her to be unable to face Shido after she transformed into a Spirit, immediately flee, despite the fact that she was in the middle of using her strongest attack against Tohka.
After finding the truth of her parents' death, Origami suffered an emotional breakdown and inversed. In this state, Origami is emotionally dead and completely unresponsive to everything around her. She is compared to a corpse, as Kurumi noted that she had fallen into an unrecoverable state. This Origami continues to exist into the new timeline, as all of her memories are retained. The New Timeline Origami eventually inherits her identity after resolving her emotional issues.
New Timeline Edit
Because Shido prevented the deaths of Origami's parents by her Spirit self's hands, Origami never "entrusted" him with her emotions and became an avenger, as such the new timeline's Origami is a more cheerful girl, even questioning at times if it was actually right for the AST to try to kill Spirits. She was shown to be quite a bit more shy and, for lack of a better word, normal than the old Origami when it came to Shido asking her out on a date, where she found herself constantly trying to find the best way to reply to it. She also has no idea about the fact that she has Spirit powers, which were inherited from the old timeline alongside her memories.
However, while the old timeline's Origami does continue to exist within her, she is suppressed for the sake of her own sanity, due to the catatonic state of mind that version of her is still stuck in. Old Origami manifests often during her date with Shido through rather perverted and/or stalker-like actions, much to her confusion, embarrassment and even horror. When she senses Mana, her original self's hatred of spirits takes over and she immediately transforms into her inverse form. Later, when the new Origami actually meets the original Origami and fuses with her, it is finally possible for Shido to save her from her unrecoverable state. It's revealed that the old Origami personality never actually loved Shido, but depended upon him, but the new Origami did come to love him on their date.
Following this event, Origami regains her memories from the original timeline, cuts her hair short again, but she lets go of her long time grudge against spirits and "reclaims" the emotions she entrusted to Shido five years ago. She also admits that she is now genuinely in love with Shido, and will not surrender to Tohka, as she states that, while she no longer hates Spirits, she, the <Angel>, is still the <Princess>'s enemy for this reason. Oddly, realizing her true feelings for Shido rather than just having him as an emotional crutch for her sanity has made Origami even more blatant in her already stalker-like tendencies to gain his affections. This is very likely to be either a result of simply knowing no other way to act around him, or evidence that she is now even more obsessed with gaining his attention than she was before.
In Itsuka Disaster, it's mentioned that both timeline's personalities have been reconstructed and mixed together, but her new timeline's personality is the more dominant due to her body being the result of the new timeline. The traits of her old timeline's personality usually tends to manifest when around Shido or when being competitive against Tohka, and her new timeline's personality usually shows in normal and everyday situations or when she panics over her actions towards Shido in private. She's also now very concerned about what Shido might think of her, often worrying if her actions towards him will make him think she's weird.
As of the new timeline, she also has debates in her mind represented by an Angel and a Devil that try to decide which action to take. Surprisingly, the Devil is the reasonable one while the Angel tries to make her follow her desires. The Angel is represented by her old timeline's appearance, while the Devil is represented by her new timeline's appearance when she had her long hair. Their debates often lead to Origami losing focus towards reality quite often and are the possible explanation for some of her behavior.
Before 5 years ago, Origami seemed to have once been just an ordinary girl. At school, her favorite subject was noted to be math, while her weakest subject was noted to be the Japanese language. Her favorite food was gratin, while her hated food was celery. Back then, her dream was to become a cute bride.
Old Timeline Edit
However, 5 years ago, when Origami was returning home, her neighborhood was caught in a huge fire. Worried about her parents she went in to her house and was happy to see that they were both safe. However, at that moment a mysterious laser of shining light descended on them from above, hitting and killing her parents and causing a shockwave that knocked Origami back. Looking into the sky Origami saw a being she could only describe as an angel. Realizing that thing killed her parents, Origami swore she would one day kill it. She was comforted soon after by Shido Itsuka and became emotionally dependent upon him as a result.
It is noted that, from that moment on Origami's dream changed to just killing that Spirit and became obsessed with trying to obtain the power to do so. She began to push herself to excel in all subject and also no longer cared about food, only eating to gain the adequate amount of nutrients to make her body strong.
Afterwards Origami was taken in by an aunt who lived nearby. She was a former AST member and through her Origami learned about the Spirits.Through her aunt's connections, Origami was able to become a member of the AST after she was proven to be compatible with the Realizer.
New Timeline Edit
As a result of Shido using Kurumi's twelfth bullet to travel back in time to 5 years ago, Origami's past was greatly altered.
Shido was successfully able to prevent the deaths of Origami's parents. However, this would cause Shido to be hit by the laser of shining light instead. After seeing someone seemingly sacrifice himself to prevent her parents from being killed by a Spirit, Origami felt powerless and vowed to never let someone die to protect her again, wanting to be the one who protect others . Because of this Origami would still end up joining the AST, but this time not for revenge but in order to protect others. Unfortunately, Origami's parents would still end up dying, this time during a traffic accident, a year later.
At some point, the Spirit powers and memories from the Origami from the old timeline would transfer to her. However, in order to prevent her mind from breaking, Origami developed a split personality. The Origami of the new timeline would have control normally, with the Origami from the old timeline becoming the dominant personality when assuming her inverse form. Whenever Origami sensed spirit mana, she would transform into her inverse form and end up fighting the Spirit whom the spirit mana belonged to. This brought her often in conflict with the AST and DEM as well. Because of this she would often transform into her inverse form during her missions as an AST member, but from all Origami and the AST knew she was only blacking out and it was never discovered why. As a result of this, along with the fact the she had also began to question if the Spirits are truly evil, Origami would end up leaving the AST and transfer to Raizen High School shortly after Shido returned to this new timeline.
Tohka Dead End Edit
During the first day of school after Spring break, Origami approached Shido. She seemed to known him, despite Shido not knowing Origami. As Origami asked if he doesn’t remember her, Shido replies that he doesn’t. Despite this rejection, Origami remains emotionless. Throughout the first class lesson, Shido can feel Origami staring at him. When the spacequake alarm sounds, Origami runs to the opposite direction of the shelter.
Flying in formation with her AST team, they confront the Spirit <Princess>. After seeing Shido in the battlefield, she rushes down and confronts the Spirit in close combat quarters with her laser blade <No Pain>. The two continue fighting until the Spirit is declared lost and disappears. As they were arriving at the JGSDF - Tenguu Base, she wonders to herself why Shido was there, and how that she remembers him as the boy from that time. After arriving on the base, she is congratulated by her commander, Kusakabe Ryouko, who tells her that she did a good job. However, Origami reminds her that she didn’t defeat the Spirit, it just chose to vanish. However, Ryouko scolds Origami by calling her thought process suicidal, since they were dealing with a natural disaster that had intelligence. However, while acknowledging her superior’s statements, she reconfirms her resolve to defeat the Spirits before leaving.
The next day, she confronts Shido and asks him why he was there yesterday, to which he responds that he was looking for his sister. Afterwards, she asks to him to keep her AST activities a secret. Before leaving, she tells him that a Spirit killed her parents 5 years ago, and she wants to prevent future tragedies like hers. As Shido was escaping from Tamae-sensei, he accidently bumps into Origami. Kotori then gives Shido the command to try to flirt with Origami. Despite Shido saying weird stuff like smelling her gym clothes, she merely emotionlessly replied that she did the same thing. Origami tells him that she is happy and that she’s been watching them ever since they were in put into the same class together. Much to Shido’s surprise, she agrees to Shido’s request for a date. However, the conversation was interrupted by the sound of a spacequake alarm, and Origami leaves to join her comrades.
Origami, along with the rest of the AST squad, was ordered to be on standby, since the Spirit was indoors and their Realizers had difficulty working in closed areas. They then proceeded to launch a rainstorm of bullets in order to lure out the Spirit. However, after seeing that Shido was also inside, she rushed in recklessly in order to try to protect him, despite Ryouko warning her against acting recklessly. However, the Spirit merely responded by summoning her Angel, causing a large explosion that blew Origami away. As she is recovered by a helicopter, Ryouko scolds her for her recklessness.
The next day, she watches as Shido was accompanied by another girl. However, upon further inspection, she saw that the girl looked identical to the Spirit <Princess>. She proceeded to stalk the pair as they went on their date. She then stated her position and ID code before asking AST to send her one observation machine. She then follows the two to Tenguu Station. Ryouko calls her to inform that there is a 98.5% match between the girl and the Spirit <Princess>. However, they must wait from permission from higher ups before she can unleash her sniper rifle <CCC> on the Spirit. After getting approval, she fires her round, but Shido jumps in the way in order protect Tohka. Origami stood unresponsive after seeing what she did, complexly horrified by her own actions. However, before she could regain her composure, she is attacked by an unhinged Tohka, who lets out a relentless attack that easily shatters Origami’s Territory. In her hazy vision, Origami prepared herself for the final blow, but the attack is stopped by Shido, who was revived as he flew down from the sky.
The next day, Origami came in to class covered in bandages. Despite using the medical Realizer for treatment, her injuries were still there. She apologizes to Shido for her previous actions, to which Shido quickly accepts since their classmates were quickly starting to spread rumors. As Tohka announces herself as a new transfer student, she voices her shock at why she was at school. As Tohka decides to sit next to Shido, the two continue to glare at each other as class begins to start.
Origami intervenes as Shido is about to eat a cookie made by Tohka. Throwing a fork with extreme precision, she breaks the cookie just as Shido was about to eat it. She tells Shido that it's unsafe to eat Tohka's cookies, since she was unhygienic when making them. Instead, she offers Shido her perfectly organized cookies. Tohka rebukes her by saying that it is impossible for her cookies to taste nice. As a result, Shido is forced to eat both girl's cookies at the same time. When seeing this, Origami tells Tohka that Shido ate her cookie 0.02 seconds faster.
The next day at school, Origami overhears a conversation between Shido and Tonomachi. Her interest is suddenly peaked when she overhears Shido telling Tonomachi that he was in the maid fraction. When noticed by Shido, she greeted him good morning in a monotonous tone, causing Tonomachi to wonder why Shido is the only one to get a greeting from her. During lunch break, she and Tohka start fighting over who gets to eat lunch with Shido. This causes Shido himself to intervene and say that they should all eat together. During the meal, she glanced suspiciously at why Shido and Tohka had the same bento box. Shido tells her that it was something that they both got from the lunch vendor. However, Origami calls him out on the lie, revealing to Shido that she knows that he bought that lunch box 154 days ago at a discount shop in front of the station for 1580 Yen. At that moment, the spacequake alarm went off, causing Origami to leave in order to rejoin her comrades in the AST.
Along with her squad, Origami was ordered to be on stand-by since the Spirit <Hermit> had taken cover within a department store. Still, Origami asks Ryouko for the permission to attack. However, her captain told her that they were on standby, since there was no need for that much collateral damage when their target is the passive <Hermit>, and not the Spirit <Princess>. Hearing that name reminds Origami of her new classmate. She thinks to herself, much to her frustration, how her reports and AST investigation proved inconclusive. Despite her efforts, she was not able to prove that Tohka was the Spirit <Princess>. At that moment, she felt that she saw Tohka’s presence walking towards the department store. However, she quickly dismisses this oversight, concluding that she had merely becoming edgy.
As the <Hermit> escapes from the apartment store, Origami and her comrades being to launch their attack by firing a large number of bullets from her Anti-Spirit Gatling gun <Auldist>. Due to her Territory providing her with enhanced superhuman eyesight, she caught sight of a shadow moving at high speed within the cloud of dust. Responding to her mental will, the small missiles located within the leg compartments of her equipment activated, each loaded with 10 rounds homing missiles that were launched aimed at <Hermit>. Despite the constant barrage, <Hermit> was eventually declared lost and disappeared. As the AST squad was ordered to returned back to base, Origami eyes caught winded of a puppet in the wreckage.
From the camera audio, Shido discovers that Origami had Yoshinon in her possession and asked to come in her house in order to retrieve the puppet. As Shido she arrives, Origami greets him while being dressed in a maid costume. Origami is asked by Shido if he was living alone, to which she replies that she lived with her grandmother 5 years ago after her parents died, but started living alone after entering high school. Origami offers Shido some cookies and tea, but Shido notes that his body was feeling odd after eating and drinking. As Origami moves closer to Shido, despite Shido's protests. In return, Origami offers Shido a trade. She then tells Shido that it isn't fair how she calls Tohka by her first name, while referring to her with her last name. So, she requests to him to call her Origami from now on.
As Origami leaves to take a shower, Shido quickly uses that time to search for Yoshino's puppet. Before leaving, Shido asks Origami what she would do if some Spirits turned to be good people. However, Origami says that is impossible, since a Spirit five years ago caused a fire that killed her parents. To her, they are a disaster that is the enemy of all living things. And of course, Tohka was no exception. However, since Tohka currently gave no Spirit readings, she couldn't proceed with any action. However, their conversation is soon interrupted by another spacequake alarm. Before leaving, she tells Shido to go to the shelter immediately.
After meeting up with her teammates, they continued their attack on Yoshino, who had become more unhinged after losing Yoshinon. The cold air started to freeze their ammunition before it could be launched. Afterwards, two of her AST commanders were frozen intact with their territories still active. Separating into two teams, Origami, together with 2 members of the AST, delicately changed their direction, and withdrew from the main team to ambush <Hermit> at the side with a laser net. At that moment, Yoshino unleashed her powers in the form of a blizzard dome. Realizing that the dome would react to the magicoutput of their Territories, Origami tried to crush <Hermit> by dropping the wreckage of a large apartment on it. However, before she could succeed, she is interrupted by Tohka, who tells her to not interfere.
2 days later, Origami is present at a briefing to discuss their latest battle with <Hermit>. Ryouko announces to her team that new personnel will be transferred to their team as a result of large Spirit sightings in Tenguu City. Upon seeing the new girl, Mana Takamiya, Origami eyes gasp with shock due to her resemblance to Shido. As they watch the video, she hears is shocked to see that Shido was present. Even more so, when the Mana also notices Shido as well and calls him "Nii-sama".
On October 16, Origami is at school, bemoaning how she wasn't able to confront <Witch> yesterday along with the AST team because of her light house arrest. However, her attention is then turned to Shido's empty seat. Noticing that it was unusual for Shido to be late, she asks Tohka for where Shido is. However, Tohka merely states that Shido probably had something to do, and that it was not Origami's concern. However, "Shido" soon appears in the classroom. Much to Origami's surprise, Shido started to flirt with every girl in the room. Within the disconcerted classroom, Origami slightly raised her eyebrows at the scene.
Later in the day, the real Shido arrives at school. When Shido questions if he did something to Origami as well, she shakes her head and says that he didn't. She then grabs his wrist and demands that she'll have him do something embarrassing to her now.
Origami, along with the sealed Spirits, are the group that was turned into children by Natsumi. Here, she keeps pestering Shido, as he struggles to maintain control, by asking him to take her to the bathroom. Luckily, Reine arrives and manages to restore order, telling Origami that Shido likes a girl who can go to the bathroom by herself. That night, Origami is the only one among the transformed to decline staying the night at the Itsuka residence, citing that she has something that she has to take care of. The next day, Origami and the others cause further commotion for Shido at school by arriving in their transformed states. To add to the pandemonium, Origami pretends to be Itsuka Chiyogami, Origami and Shido's fictitious daughter, greatly surprising everyone who heard that.
Much later, Origami found herself transformed back to normal while within her house. As she thinks about what could have happened with Natsumi, she decides to check up with Shido and the others. However, as she was changing her clothes, she senses another presence approaching her home. As Origami hid her body behind the wall without saying anything, she payed attention to the front entrance while pulling out a small automatic gun from her leg holster. Not long after she did that, the door was thrown open, several men then entered the room. But, at that moment, the wire installed at the door was pulled and the tear gas sprayed at the group of men vigorously. She then uses that opportunity to escape outside the window. As she was running away, she wonders who could be after her. At that moment, her phone starts to ring as she revives a call from Ryouko. Ryouko tells her that it might be because of her prior actions of using the <White Licorice> unit against DEM to protect Shido. As the operatives finally have her cornered, she receives a call from Ellen, who asks her to work for DEM. Origami replies that she would never work for an organization that would harm Shido. However, Ellen replies that Shido was no longer their target for the time being.
Ellen asks Origami if she is okay with losing her power to fight against the Spirits. In response, Origami tells Ellen that she doesn't buy that and asks Ellen if she still has some resentment for the injury she dealt to her last time. In respond, Ellen says that the desire for a good subordinate has won over such grievances. Ellen continues by saying that DEM also has knowledge about the Spirits that were there 5 years ago when her parents died. After a few moments of silence, Origami agreed to Ellen's offer, accepting the power that DEM would give her. After hearing Origami's acceptance, Ellen appears and knocks the group of men there unconscious. She then extends her hand and welcomes Origami to DEM.
Much later, Westcott sends out Origami to test out her new CR-Unit against the third satellite that was descending down to Tenguu City. With her new found power, she easily self-destructs the third satellite, shocking Shido who catches a glimpse of Origami in the sky.
After the previous events, Shido and the others are shocked to find out that Origami had transferred to another school in the United Kingdom. Shido tries to visit Origami's house, but finds the building empty and abandoned. Much to his surprise, he sees Origami outside. Origami tells Shido to follow her and the two of them end up in a back alley. Before Shido can ask anything, Origami gets behind him and covers his mouth and nose with a cloth, causing Shido to pass out.
As Shido wakes up, Origami confirms that she has joined DEM in order to obtain enough power to defeat Spirits. Shido asks Origami if she had kidnapped him on Westcott's orders, but Origami says that she's doing this on her own will. She tells Shido that she's going to fight against the Spirits and she doesn't want him to get caught in their battles. Shido tells Origami that Tohka and the others have nothing to do with the Spirit that killed Origami's parents, but Origami rebuts that Spirits are inherently dangerous. Shido responds that Tohka and the others have adapted to the modern society, and that they are in fact living like "humans". Origami replies that she understands and she's scared of how she has become use to having the Spirits hanging around. Shido argues that the Spirits just want to live a normal life, but Origami says she won't allow that. She tells Shido that with Tohka's life, she will regain herself. Shido yells at Origami to wait, but she heads off to her showdown against Tohka and the others.
Faking a spacequke alarm, she lures Tohka, Miku, Kaguya, and Yuzuru out into the open. Origami equips <Mordred> and opens fire on the Spirits. Tohka grabs Miku and leaps aside, at the exact moment the Yamai twins kick against the ground and jump up as the place where they were standing is blown into smithereens by Origami's cannon. Tohka notices hostility and killing intent in Origami's eyes - the same kind of eyes Origami had when she first fought against Tohka. Tohka asks Origami why she changed back to her old self. Tohka notes that Origami has actually changed in the last half year. She certainly still harbored hatred towards the Spirits, but it was not the same kind of hatred she had back in the day.
With <Mordred>, Origami is able to take on the Spirits alone without trouble. Tohka realizes that Origami is serious about killing them. As Kaguya's scream brings Tohka back to her senses, Origami has closed the distance between her and Tohka when the latter was lost in her thoughts. With an unforgiving force, Origami cuts through Tohka's Astral Dress. As Tohka wakes up, she sees Miku badly injured and Origami about to deliver the finishing blow to Yuzuru. Not wanting her friends to die, Tohka suddenly regains her full power to face Origami.Faced with Tohka's full power, Origami loses the advantage that she once had. She tires to focus her territory and channel her power through her <Clarent> laser blade. However, Tohka easily parries the attack and pushes Origami backwards. As the fight drags on, Origami begins to experience terrible headaches, the same type of headaches she suffered when her <White Licorice> had reached its operation limit. Tohka capitalizes on the split second that Origami is distracted and lands a devastating slash on Origami.
As Origami lays defeated, she laments that she had erased years of her life to only somehow managing Tohka’s power. After Origami weakly sighed, she powerlessly lowered her hand that was holding up to the heavens. At that moment, a mysterious voice approached Origami and offered her power. Despite thinking that it was just a hallucination, Origami accepted the offer and the voice told her to reach out her hand to accept a mysterious gem. The moment she touched the crystal, it dissolved and she felt as if another heart had formed inside her body,as if a different hot kind of blood pumping into her body. Origami felt her existence was changing into that of another entity.
Origami soon returns to the battle, shocking Tohka and the others, who see her a Spirit. As Origami utters the name of her angel, A-<Metatron> brilliant light shines upon her and in an instant she's clad in her Astral Dress. Origami doesn't seem to be too bothered by the fact that she has become a Spirit. She tells Tohka that she is the Spirit who hunts Spirits and once every other Spirit is dead, she will kill herself. She readies her attack, Shemesh - The Sun, as her crown spins and light particles begin to spread around it. As soon as Tohka sets up a barrier to shield herself, the light particles rain down on the city. The streets, cars, houses, everything is engulfed by the rain of light.
Tohka breaks through the downpour of destruction and attacks Origami, but to Tohka's surprise, Origami disappears in a flash of light and reappears a few metres away from her original position. Tohka attacks again, but Origami teleports away using Mal'akh - Heavenly Wings. Not giving Tohka a chance to catch her breath, Origami attacks the <Princess> with Kaddur - Sword of Light. Tohka tries to defend herself against the light beam attacks but there are simply too many of them. To get out of the one-sided fight, Tohka leaps towards Origami, ignoring all the attacks the latter throws at her. Origami teleports away again just as Tohka's sword is about to reach her, but Tohka unexpectedly ditches Sandalphon to pursue Origami. With all of her strength, Tohka punches Origami in the face. As she is more badly hurt, Tohka knows that she would be at a severe disadvantage if they kept on fighting like this. Betting it all on one decisive blow, Tohka summons her Throne and readies her Final Sword: <Halvanhelev>. Origami realizes Tohka's intentions and prepares her ultimate attack, <Artelif> - Gun Crown, as well. The blade wrapped in dark light and the crown covered in white light would surely obliterate each other. However, before they can launch their ultimate attacks, as Shido's desperate scream snaps Tohka and Origami out of their battle frenzy. Not sure how to face Shido in her Spirit form, Origami flies away.
Without battles to distract her, Origami falls into self-loathing upon identifying herself as a Spirit. She ponders about the connection between the Spirit that killed her parents and Phantom. However, she realizes that she now that the power to defeat the Spirits, she can finally avenge her parents. An idea suddenly crosses her mind as she goes through the names of the Spirits that she has to kill - with the help of a certain person, Origami realizes that she may be able to exact her revenge much sooner than she had expected.
Origami finds Kurumi and asks if she has the power to send her back in time. Kurumi jokingly asks Origami if she wanted to go back so that she can see Shido when he was an innocent child. However, Origami says she wishes to go back to five years ago and kill the Spirit that murdered her parents. Essentially, she wants to change the past. After considering Origami's position, Kurumi eventually agrees to send Origami to the past. She tells Origami that she is using the former AST soldier to test out the Twelfth Bullet, and that she will be using Origami's spiritual energy to power the time travel. Origami gets uncharacteristically excited and assures Kurumi that she is ready to pay the price as long as she is sent back before the incident 5 years ago. Kurumi summons Zafkiel and shoots Origami with the Twelfth Bullet.
Having traveled back in time, Origami is ecstatic when she spots <Phantom>. However, her ambush on the mysterious being ends in failure. Origami's presence puzzles Phantom because the Sephira of <Metatron> is still in the latter's possession. Avoiding Origami's attacks, <Phantom> says to herself that Origami must have used the power of <Zafkiel> to come here, and that she's a little surprised Kurumi would actually lend someone else her power. <Phantom> tells Origami that she does not know about Origami's parents. Origami is angered by <Phantom>'s remark that she has got the wrong person and begins to attack <Phantom> even more ferociously. Origami's relentless attacks prove little harm to <Phantom>, but they manage to temporarily dispel the noise that has always covered <Phantom>, with Origami feeling like she has heard <Phantom>'s real voice somewhere before. However, Phantom leaves before Origami can finish her off. Origami fires a few light beams at Phantom in a desperate attempt to exact her revenge, but she is too slow and the beams travel right through the shadow of <Phantom>.
Origami thinks to herself that even though she has failed to kill Phantom, she has driven her parents' killer away so at the very least she's saved her family. As the time limit of Kurumi's bullet approaches, Origami gets all teary picturing meeting her parents again when she goes back to the present. Until she takes notice of what is happening on the ground.
A young girl stands in a daze in front of ruins that look like they have just suffered extensive damage from light beam attacks. Five years ago, it was light beams raining down from the sky that killed her parents. Five years ago, Origami followed the path of the light beams and saw her parents' killer. Though she did not know about Spirits, she remembers the silhouette - it was that of an angel. Origami has finally understood the situation. Five years ago, there were multiple Spirits present at the fire in Tenguu City just as Shido had told her. However, there weren't just two Spirits. Kotori who caused the fire and Phantom who turned Kotori into a Spirit, and, Origami who had traveled back from the future to kill <Phantom>"there were three Spirits here on that day. It wasn't <Phantom> who killed Origami's parents. The person who took away their lives, was none other than Origami herself. Faced with this terrorizing revelation, Origami lets out an anguished scream.
As the the effects of the bullet wear off, Origami returns back to the present as an Inverse Spirit. Unable to control her own actions, she starts to indiscriminately attack everything near her. With a single blow, she completely annihilates the <Fraxinus> ship. As Shido tries to approach her, he notes that his eyes look soulless like she had a dead face that had seen all kinds of despair in this world.
As Shido traveled to 5 years ago thanks to Kurumi, he arrives just as Origami's parents were killed by her future self. Origami is comforted by Shido, who tells her that he would do anything if she would not give into despair. Wiping away her tears, he tells Shido that he will leave behind her tears, happiness, and enjoyment to him. She vows that she would give him this until the day that she kills the Angel that murdered her parents. As she leaves, Shido and Kurumi realizes that their actions have indirectly caused Origami's behavior in the future. As Shido travels back in time, for a second time, he manages to push Origami's parents out of the way from her future self's attack, drastically altering Origami's future.
In the new timeline, Origami appears as a new transfer student in Shido's school. After greeting hello to her classmates, Tama-sensei instructs her to take the seat next to Shido. Upon seeing him, Origami gasps in shock, but afterwards, Origami immediately swung her head to regain her composure. She then changed completely by bowing down formally before settling down on the seat designated by Tama-chan. During class, Origami receives a note from Shido that tells her to meet up with him later at the rooftop of the school. After meeting up with him, Origami voices her surprise at Shido's appearance, remarking that he looks identical to the person who died trying to save her parents 5 years ago.
Shido asks her if she'd met the person during the fire 5 years ago. Origami wonders how Shido would know about something like that and quickly concludes that he is that person's younger brother. As Shido decides to go along with it to avoid further confusion, Origami bows and says that Shido's brother saved her parents and goes on about how she can't thank him enough. She apologizes for her behavior and confirms that her parents were saved during the fire, but when Shido asks if she's living with them now, Origami pauses and tells him that they had died in a traffic accident 4 years ago.
Shido then asks Origami why she had joined AST. She is clearly surprised that Shido knows about her affiliation to AST, but thinks that he probably saw her during combat when he went outside instead of evacuating during spacequake alarms. She tells him it's a very dangerous thing to do and he should refrain from doing it in the future. She says that she joined AST because of the Spirit who killed the person that saved her parents. She wanted to become like that person and protect people from Spirits. Shido realizes the irony of fate and no matter what he does in the past, Origami will end up fighting the Spirits. Before Origami leaves, Shido asks her if she's become a Spirit, though she doesn't seem to have a clue about what he's saying. The school bell rings, Origami thanks Shido and says it was nice to be able to speak with him. Shido asks if they could talk more and Origami replies that they have classes. Shido says it doesn't need to be today and asks her if it's okay to meet when she's free, which makes Origami blush. Origami tells him that she will think about it. Back in class, Origami passes a note that tells Shido that she is free this Saturday. Seeing that Shido has taken the note, a relieved Origami blushes and covers her face with the textbook.
As Shido was talking with Kurumi, Origami was still in school searching for a hair ornament that was a memento of her late mother. She eventually finds it on the stairway before the rooftop, where she had talked with Shido before. As she puts on the hair pin, she sees two silhouettes through the glass on the door - one of them is her classmate Shido, and the other one, clad in a red and black Astral Dress, is the Spirit codenamed Nightmare. As soon as Origami's head registers these pieces of information, she blacks out as if her power supply had been switched off. Shido tries to explain the situation as Origami comes to the rooftop, but quickly realizes that Origami is not really responding. Kurumi greets Origami but before the black-haired Spirit can finish, Origami begins to become enveloped in spiderweb-like darkness.
Origami calls out the name of her demon, Devil of Salvation <Satan> and attacks Kurumi and Shido. Kurumi leaps into air and shoots at Origami but the shot is easily blocked by Origami's "feathers", while the defenseless Kurumi is torn apart by Origami's attacks. Shido screams out Kurumi's name and turns to Origami only to be surprised by how her "feathers" and Astral Dress have vanished, leaving Origami in her school uniform. Shido tries to make sense of the events before him and is more confused when Origami asks him what she's doing here. Origami asks Shido if she's had a black out again and says she's been losing consciousness since a while ago. She thinks she's probably suffering from anemia and leaves after asking Shido if he's read the note she's given him.
As Shido returns home, he discusses Origami's unique case with Reine and Kotori. Reine says the conditions may be being shot by Kurumi's Twelfth Bullet or having spiritual powers. Shido asks Reine if she's saying that the Inverse Origami is the Origami who has regained memories of the original world. Reine replies that it's just a theory but it would seem to be a logical conclusion. Shido says the Origami who came to school is definitely the Origami with memories of this world. Reine says Shido is unique in that he has retained memories of the original world from the beginning, while Origami just has memories of the new world. As a defense mechanism against the memories of the original world being fed into the new Origami, she's separated herself from the Origami with memories of the original world. In other words, there are two Origami in one body, one with memories of the original world and the other with memories of the new world. Kotori and Reine conclude that the trigger that sets off the old Origami is the existence of Spirits. Since she didn't react to Tohka at school, Origami most likely responds to spiritual power.
Meanwhile, at Origami's place, she's rolling on her bed and being embarrassed about what she did at school today. She was really surprised when she saw Shido because how much he looked like the person who saved her parents. The moment she saw Shido, she was overcome with deep emotions. It's not just when she looks at him, when she hears his voice, when she smells his scent and when she touches his hand, a mysterious feeling arises from her heart. She receives a text message from Shido about the time and location for their date and gets really excited. She tells herself to calm down and decides to send a reply, but her first attempt ends up being too soldier-like so she deletes it and tries again, this time with flowery verses about how she can't wait for the next Saturday. There is a strange feeling she gets when she thinks about him and so on. She realizes the message is too embarrassing so she deletes it again. By the time she replies to him, it's already the next day.
During their date, Origami asks Shido what they are going to do today; to which Shido is presented with three choices: watching movies, going shopping, or going to hotel like real adults. Shopping gets the most votes but Shido decides to take Origami to a hotel as a test. It doesn't seem to go well at all as the alarm on the <Fraxinus> goes off. Kotori yells at Shido to take Origami away from there before she gets angry. Kotori tells Shidou to stick with their original choice and go shopping, to which he complies. Kotori is surprised when her crew informs her that Origami's emotional level increased slightly instead of falling down. More choices come up as Origami asks Shido what they are shopping for, and once again instead of picking selection or pet shops, Shido takes Origami to some shady backstreet store to buy aphrodisiacs. Origami doesn't seem to know anything in the shop but when Shido tries to take her to a different shop, he sees that despite being confused about the items, Origami is carrying some of the strongest aphrodisiacs in the shop. Shido asks her what she's doing, but Origami seems quite unsure what's going on herself. Seeing her in a state of utter confusion, Shido quickly takes Origami out of the shop.
They eventually end up going to select shops and Shido decides to buy a 39,800 yen coat for Origami and tells her that she will wear and show it to him first as a token of gratitude. Origami jokes that Shido is quite the lady killer. She tells Shido that she wants to look around in the shop for a bit longer and wanders off. With the help of Reine, Shido locates Origami some 20 meters behind him. He sees that she's in the changing room and decides to kill some time while she's trying on the clothes. A sudden scream from Origami interrupts Shido's thoughts and he finds her dressed in school swimsuit, dog ears and tail, completed with a leash. Origami gets a headache as she thinks about the things she's wearing and Shido tells her that they will go somewhere else as soon as she changes back into her normal clothes.
Origami apologizes to Shido for her bizarre behavior. Shido asks her if they should end their date early, to which Origami says that it's fine and they don't need to stop early today. She thinks to herself that while she's really happy going on a date with Shido, but she can't help but become overwhelmed with strange impulses every now and then. From her clothing choice in the select shop to seemingly knowing exactly what to get in the aphrodisiac shop, Origami wonders what is going on and if she's been to the shop before. While eating, Shido leaves to talk with Kotori and tells Origami that he will be right back. As Shido disappears from Origami's view, a dirty thought crosses her mind as she sees Shido's used spoon. Despite fighting desperately to control her right hand, she eventually takes the spoon. Shido returns just in time to witness Origami holding his spoon with her tongue sticking out in a very suggestive manner. Hearing Shido calling her name snaps Origami out of her trance. As she tries to explain the situation, Origami stands up and causes the table to tilt towards Shido, whose shirt ends up getting wet thanks to the drinking cup on the table. Origami apologizes, but when Shido lifts his shirt to dry it, she loses control of herself again and starts snapping pictures of Shido. A teary Origami tells Shido that her body is moving on its own. The restaurant is filled with Origami's cries and the sound of unceasing camera shutter.
As the day starts to end, Shido and Origami arrives at the park on high ground as instructed by the <Fraxinus>. Origami tells Shido that one of the reasons she left AST was because her anemic blackouts, which was fatal to a soldier, and another reason was that she's unsure if killing Spirits was really a righteous thing to do. She tells Shido that she's sorry for saying that because it was a Spirit who killed his brother. Shido says that he doesn't consider her way of thinking bad, and he's sure his brother will say the same thing to her as well. Origami looks like she's about to cry so Shido holds her hand even more firmly. Just as Shido was about to kiss her, Origami's eyes are fixated on his injured left hand, which is being healed thanks to Kotori's power. Suddenly the siren goes off and Shido is blown away by Origami's spiritual power.
Kotori tells Shido that Origami would likely not stop unless Shido is dead. The <Fraxinus> restrains Origami using the Yggd Folium system and Kotori attempts to attack Origami with the ship's main cannon. Before Kotori can finish giving her order however, Origami's "feathers" surround the Fraxinus and the white airship is pierced by rays of black light. As Origami's "feathers" prepare to attack the fallen airship, a strong wind alters the trajectory of Origami's attacks and the dark lights miss the airship. Tohka gets there just in time to save Shido being shot by the "feathers". Shido cries out Tohka's name and notices that all the Spirits are there. Tohka asks Shido who the rampaging Spirit is and becomes a little puzzled when she hears it's the new transfer student. Against the dreadful power of the Devil, Shido asks the Spirits to lend him a hand.
The sealed Spirits struggle to carve out a blood path to Origami for Shido, Inside Origami's mind, long-haired Origami is shown the memories of the original Origami. From killing her parents to indiscriminately destroying cities, the negative emotions begin to overwhelm her. She screams but her voice alone is not enough save the original Origami. This world's Origami cannot save the original world's Origami by herself. Someone from outside will have to reach out to her. Origami begins to hear Shido's voice. Shido says that he's told her 5 years ago that she's not alone and no matter how many times she destroys the world, he will do something about it and no matter how many times she despairs, he will save her. Shido tells her he needs her and yells at Origami to take his hand.
In Shido's arms, a crying Origami recounts all the atrocities she's committed in the original world. Shido says that is a heavy burden that Origami will have to carry. Origami says she has to apologize to Shido because she did not have any romantic feeling towards him, but rather saw him as an emotional dependence, someone she could cling to. She says she's sincerely sorry for causing him all the trouble. Shido doesn't mind and says it's an honor because Origami needs him. He says it's time to give everything back to her - back then Origami didn't just leave her tears with him. Hearing that, Origami blushes and gives Shido an awkward, but genuine, smile. In that instant, Origami's black Astral Dress is replaced with her white dress. Her "feathers" too dissipates into light particles. They kiss and Origami is successfully sealed.
Tohka sees Shido with a half-naked Origami and says this time it's special and she will let Origami be with Shido. Shido notices the changes in Tohka's tone as she speaks to Origami like an old rival. Shido asks if Tohka's remembered Origami and gets an affirmative reply from Tohka. He realizes that just like how he was able to regain memories when he kissed and sealed Kotori, sealing Origami helped others get back their memories of the original world. Origami thanks Tohka and others for fighting to save her, surprising everyone. Tohka wasn't expecting Origami to act like this so she tells Origami that she only fought because Shido had asked her to. Origami says then in that case she won't thank the ugly selfish Spirits. Shido laughs and thinks about the problems that lie ahead.
3 days later, Origami returns to school as Ratatoskr finishes checkups on her. Shido chats with the Spirits and notices that Tohka no longer refers to Origami by her full name. Origami finally shows up, but with her original short hair. Shido gets sentimental about having gone through so much and the fact that everyone is here again. Shido tries to wipe his tears but Origami says to him that he should use "this". He reaches for something like a handkerchief but finds nothing. He turns to Origami and sees that her hands are empty and before he knows it, Origami grabs Shidou and presses his head against her abdomen. Tohka asks what Origami is doing and Origami says she's wiping Shido's tears. She reveals that she wasn't wearing any underwear but rather a school swimsuit, which Origami claims to be exceptionally good at absorbing liquids. Shido's classmates don't seem to have gotten back the memories of the original Origami and are speculating what happened to her during her break.
Incidentally, the new Origami has jumped to No.1 on the "Girl You Want to Date the Most" ranking. Tohka tells Origami to get away from Shido, but Origami says that while she's changed her attitude towards the Spirits, she will not give up Shido to Tohka. As long as Tohka pursues Shido, the <Princess> will remain the <Angel>'s enemy. Shidou says that according to his memories, Origami said that she did not have any romantic feeling for him. Origami says that he's correct but from now on it's true love. Origami is thanked by Shido for listening to him back then and says he's really happy that she's come back. He says he looks forward to spending time together with Origami, to which she smiles and gives him an affirmative response.
After being sealed, Origami's personality starts to fluctuate, with her original personality resurging when she is around Shido. After Shido and Tohka arrive at school, they find out that she had taken Shido’s indoor shoes in order to warm them up. Then, she apologizes after being told that Shido had to use slippers because of her actions. However, she reaches out to hug Shido, telling him that she will act as a temperature regulator system for him. After feeling that Shido’s temperature was high, she asks if he has a fever. After hearing this, she runs away surprised over what she is doing.
As she looks to herself in a mirror, she asks herself if Shido would think of her as a weird girl now. As Shido comes over to check up on her, her original personality resurfaces again. Despite being confused by her own actions, she asks him to examine her body because she was feeling a little bit sick. Later during the physical examination, she deliberately gets a measurement that is one parameter above Tohka’s. When Tohka accuses her of this, she replies that it was just a coincidence, but later refuses Tohka’s demand for her to go first next time. Like everyone else, she was shocked when Shido collapsed.
While at the <Ratatoskr>’s underground facility, she comments that Shido’s behavior looked like a Spirit that could not control its power. She tells everyone that she can’t consider Shido a normal human because he has the power to seal a Spirits’ power. When Natsumi questions if <Ratatoskr> is hiding something from them, Origami replies that she is unsure if <Ratatoskr> even knows the cause for Shido’s power, but also adds that <Ratatoskr> has too many mysteries surrounding them. While grateful to <Ratatoskr>, she wonders why they would protect the Spirits and do such a dangerous action without any sort of payment.
After Kotori and Reine arrive and explain the situation, they offer each Spirit a chance to enter the medical room individually and take turns kissing Shido. However, Origami requests to be last, and asks if the room had a lock, causing everyone to think it would be better if they went together. However, after entering the hospital room, they were surprised to see that Shido had already left. After finding Shido, Origami and the others were surprised by the new flirtatious personality he had. Once Shido asks everyone to make him fall in love, Origami suggests that they invite Shido to a nudist beach. However, her suggestion is turned down, and they decide to go for swimsuits instead.
During her date with Shido, she changes into a gorgeous dress. Then, she makes plans to secretly spike Shido’s drink. However, her new personality intervenes and she ends up being the one drunk instead. Despite this, her actions while drunk are enough to win Shido over. After Shido’s condition reached its critical state, Origami secretly follows Kotori after she said that she would resolve the situation by herself. Pointing a gun towards Kotori, she asks her what she is doing. After Kotori replies that she is going to kill Shido using <Dainslaif>, she asks if <Ratatoskr>’s policy is to kill Shido when he is no longer useful to him. Kotori replies that this is not the case, as they did want to use Shido, but by the time that <Ratatoskr> found him, he had already sealed her powers. Presently, Shido is a walking time bomb unless they can get him to seal all the Spirits and extract his powers in the form of a new Sephira Crystal. After hearing that word, Origami remembers it as the item that had turned her into Spirit. However, the other Spirits arrive and convince Kotori not to give up.
At that moment, <Dainslaif> starts activating anyway. Origami asks if it was because Kotori had just dropped the launch control. However, Kotori replies that the trigger control device wasn’t created so that it could be easily tampered with. However, that moment Shido is saved by <Phantom>. While all the other Spirits stare at the mosaic being, Origami stares at the mysterious being cautiously, remembering how she was able to turn her into a Spirit. However, Phantom merely states that she has given them a chance to save Shido.
After the first group had successfully kissed Shido, Kotori and Origami assume their limited Astral Dresses, and prepared for battle. Origami uses her teleportation ability to get close enough to kiss Shido. Immediately afterwards, she teleports herself out of the way in order to provide an opportunity for Kotori to get close to Shido. As Kotori was struck by Shido’s <Sandalphon>, Origami calls out her name. However, Kotori assures her that she is fine because of her regeneration ability.
After Shido is saved, Origami is among the group that walks in on Tohka kissing Shido. Origami responds that she can’t get off guard with Tohka.
After the failure of the visual novel plan, Kotori recruits the help of the other sealed Spirits in order to persuade Nia. Origami asks if Nia saying that she can only love 2D means manga and anime characters, which Kotori confirms as true. While deep in thought as the others continue the conversation, Origami suggests that they create a manga with Shido’s life as the basis of the story, which the other Spirits agreed was a good plan. After Kotori issued the sales challenge to Nia at Comico, the Spirits decided to each draw Shido to see who is most capable of being the main artist. While Origami’s drawing was very beautiful, Kotori shrieked upon seeing the age-inappropriate content involving her and Shido in a naked embrace. While Origami was confused, Kotori explained that they were going to hold their booth at an under 18 gallery, so the content of what she drew was prohibited. Eventually, it was decided that Natsumi would be the main artist, with Origami, Shido, and the Yamai Sisters as the supporting artists.
For the next two days, Origami was among the drawers working tirelessly on both the name and illustration. When the doujin was finally completed, Origami participated in Comico as a staff member selling copies of the manga. Upon Kotori’s suggestion, she invited her old friends at AST to come to buy copies of the manga. Despite Mikie’s pleas, she refused to return to AST and cited Shido as the major reason for why she has changed so much. When Ryouko states that the other girls looked familiar, Origami repeatedly told her it was just her imagination. Giving up, the AST members leave after buying the doujin and Origami returns to work.
After tying with Nia in sales, Origami is present outside as one of the Spirits celebrating when Nia said that she would give Shido a second chance. However, things took a worse when Nia suddenly started inversing. Combating the monsters that Nia summoned through <Beelzebub>, Origami and the other Spirits assumed their limited Astral Dress. Origami blew away the creatures with <Metatron>’s laser. However, she was rendered immobile after Nia used her demon king to force <Metatron> to fire at its owner. As Artemisia knocked Shido back, Origami recovered enough to grab Shido before he hit the ground. While doing so, she voiced her surprise at why Artemisia was here. Like everyone else, she was shocked at how Westcott was able to steal Nia’s demon king.
After DEM left, Origami told Natsumi to use her powers to transform Nia’s wounds into a healthy body without injuries. Afterwards, she waits alongside Shido and the others to hear Nia’s status after undergoing surgery with the medical Realizer. She accompanied everyone else outside to see the first sunrise of the New Year. After Nia said that she became a Spirit 30 years ago, Origami voiced her surprise that the manga artist had been a Spirit for that long. Like everyone else, she was stunned after Nia said that every Spirit use to be human.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Equipments & Weapons:
- Combat Wiring Suit
- Combat Realizer Unit (CR-Unit)
- <C C C>
- <No Pain>
- <White Licorice>
As a Wizard, She was the vanguard and the current "Ace" for the AST. Her skills as a member of the AST were noted to be quite phenomenal, as she was the only one who at first could manage to fight a Spirit close quarters (although she still lost), and she was also the most extreme, hoping to kill Yoshino by first dropping a building on her dome.
She managed to utilize the CR-Unit <White Licorice>, which is noted to be very dangerous and difficult to handle, in fact no one else but her has proven to be capable of using it long enough to actually put it to practical use. She was even able to land a hit on the world's most powerful Wizard, Ellen, which Ellen herself considers worthy of praise.
Finally, using <Mordred> she was capable of destroying a satellite bomb alone, a task which previously took Shido and multiple Spirits to combined their powers to destroy. Likewise, she was able to pressure 4 sealed Spirits into a corner with this unit and would have succeeded in killing them if Tohka hadn't regained her full powers. Even then, she was capable of fighting against Tohka at full power. However, the enormous stress put on her brain left her vulnerable until she was ultimately defeated.
As a Spirit, Origami's spirit powers are of long range type, attacking her enemies from a distance with lasers of shining light and creating some distance between them when they get too close. With her spirit powers, Origami is able to fight on par with Tohka at full strength, even having somewhat of an advantage against her because Tohka's spirit powers are a close range type, making her a bad match for Origami's long range abilities. Origami has also shown the ability to fly.
Her Angel, Metatron, is a set of golden, feather like, pillars that surround her and, when put together, resembles a large crown. The pillars can shoot out lasers of shining light from their tips, each of which have proven strong enough to pierce Tohka's Astral Dress when she does not create a barrier around herself. Tohka has also claimed that even if she does create a barrier around herself the lasers would still be able to pierce through.
Metatron can also take on various formations and each of these formations have shown to have a special ability. So far, Metatron has displayed the following formations:
- Shemesh - The Sun [日輪 （シェメッシュ）]: The floating pillars spin around her, gathering light particles in which she can release as a rain of energy blasts.
- Mal'akh - Heavenly Wings [天翼 （マルアク）]: By taking on a wing-like formation and folding the pillars behind her back, Origami is able to fly and achieve great speeds.
- Kadour - Sword of Light [光剣 （カドゥール）]: By breaking formation, the pillars can each attack its target(s) individually, making it look as if they have a will of their own.
- Artelif - Crown Cannon [砲冠 （アーティリフ）]: By making all of the pillars take on a circular formation and pointing their tips in the same direction, Origami can shoot out a beam of pure shining light.
- Unnamed Defensive Formation: By making the pillars surround her, Origami can use their shining light to create a barrier that can block incoming attacks.
Finally, Origami has shown the ability to transform herself into light and teleport herself. This (unnamed) ability automatically activates when she is about to be hit by an attack and teleports her a few meters away. However, the position she is going to be teleported to can be predicted and intercepted. Also, after teleporting herself she cannot dodge an attack by teleporting again in quick succession. Tohka theorizes that Origami either can't teleport continuously or that she can't teleport away from an attack she couldn't predict. Tohka also theorized that, if Origami is caught in an attack that is so large that it reaches to everything within the range of her teleportation, she cannot avoid taking damage.
Weapon: Spiked crown
Astral Dress: Unnamed
After prolonged exposure to negative emotions when she found out that she was the one who killed her parents, Origami transformed into her other form, which, according to Westcott, is the true form of Spirits in the bordering dimension.
She obtains <Satan>, a darker and sinister version of <Metatron>. Much like Tohka, her Astral Dress becomes much darker and more revealing and she gains a veil over her head.
Presumably, Origami has the same powers as the ones aforementioned, but with a dark coloration instead.
Origami has no control over her body in this form, attacking everything and everyone in sight. However, this could also be because of the shock she suffered when she found out the truth.
- (To Reine Murasame) “I want……….to be stronger. Not relying on anything, enough…………..to protect Shido………… ” 
- (To Phantom) “I…….want power. Even if I have to leave everything. Even if I have to sacrifice everything…..! I want the absolute power to grant my dear wish! I want…….The strongest power that no one can reach!” 
- (To Tohka Yatogami) “I will now wield this power to defeat the Spirits. I will become the Spirit that kills Spirits. Once I eliminate all Spirits----I will erase the last one, me” 
- (To Shido Itsuka) “I will leave my tears with you. I will give you my smile. Please take my happiness, enjoyment, everything----This will be the last time I cry. This will also be the last time I smile. But, this anger is only mine. This ugly emotion is only mine----I will kill. I will-----that Angel. No matter how long it takes. No matter what method it takes-------------- So until then, please keep them for me. Until----I kill that Angel” 
- (To her classmates) “-----I am Tobiichi Origami. Everyone, glad to meet you all” 
- Due to her stalking habits, Origami has detailed information about Shido from his ID data to his health check-up report.
- Origami is considered a genius in many fields including academics, sports, and cooking.
- Tobiichi's first name, Origami may be a reference to the traditional Japanese art of paper folding arts known as Origami.
- Origami may have been born with albinism as neither of her parents possessed white hair.
- Origami's rank in the JGSDF is the same level as the Enlisted officers, Master Sergeant.
- Origami shared her family name "Tobiichi" with Makina Tobiichi of Sōkyū no Karma series, another Sci-fi romance series written by Kōshi Tachibana, though their relation to each other is unknown.
- Origami has the character for "One" in her surname (鳶「一」), referring to the first Sephira on Kabbalah's Tree of Life: "Crown", which also refers to the admirable intelligence that Origami possesses.
- Her Angel, Metatron, means "The One Who Guards".
- Her Astral Dress, Ehyeh, means "I Will Be" or "I Will Be What I Will Be".
- There are multiple instances of foreshadowing to Origami's transformation into a Spirit and the demise of her parents by her own hands:
- Her surname Tobiichi contains a number character, a trait that all of the spirits possess.
- The background of Volume 10 is a town in flames, hinting that Origami had a role in the fire in Tengu City 5 years ago.
- After Origami joined the DEM Industries in Volume 9, the name of the CR-Unit she received is called <Mordred>, which is named after the notorious traitor who fought and fatally wounded his own father, King Arthur.
