Introduced during the events of Volume 8, her main objective is to find and kill the one behind the destruction of the Grigori institute and the death of her relatives Akane and Kurenai Himejima.
Tomoe is described as a tall, beautiful and well-endowed young woman of long purple hair which she usually wraps in a tomboyish ponytail, sharp violet eyes, fair skin and rather muscular build, result of her harsh training in the Grigori. Many notes that she's remarkably similar to Akeno Himejima in appearance.
She wears a revealing version of the Cadre uniform of the Grigori, the only thing she regains before the institute's destruction, with white shirt with red details and naked back, a golden seal with the names of the previous leaders of the Grigori and black jeans with open sides. Ichijou notes that she wears a thong under her pants.
Tomoe is a rather friendly. talkative, upbeat young woman with a bright disposition and approachable demeanor, so much Ichijou actually thinks she might be hiding second intentions. Alice and Akio however comfirm that she's genuinely a nice girl. Tomoe takes her pride in her position as the current wielder of Canis Lykaon, and promised herself to always aim higher than her descendants and herself.
However, if someone catches her nose as having the scent of both a dragon and a member of the Himejima clan, she becomes enraged to the point in jumping in physical agression without warning due to her past regarding her dead granduncle and uncle, both killed by a dragon. Despite her friendly personality, Tomoe says that she rather "work solo", which earns her the nickname "Lone wolf".
She appears to have a crush on Ichijou. If this is because of a genuine sense of affection or due the fact that his scent resembles that of her late granduncle Kurenai Himejima is unknown.
A member of the Himejima clan, Tomoe inherited from her father the Longinus-tier Sacred Gear Canis Lycaon, which has been passed down her lineage since Tobio Ikuse in order to protect and prevend it from falling in the wrong hands. It has during that same time that she met a distant relative of hers, Akio Himejima, and introduced to the world of the supernatural. For having a Longinus and also a large amount of Light Element, Tomoe was invited and introduced by Azazel to become a part of the Grigori, in which she accepted and became one of the top-fighters of the institute.
However, a few years before the start of the fanfic, the Grigori institute was completely destroyed by an unknown force, killing everyone except Tomoe and Akio, and causing the downfall of the Fallen angel comunity, which was overrun by devils. The last thing she remembers was feeling the scent of a dragon before the complete destruction of the Grigori institute. After the massive funeral, Tomoe swore by Azazel's tomb to bring the downfall of the terrorist, whatever the cost.

It has the ability to produce blades from his body and can transform itself into a sword. It can also attack through shadows. Choosing the sacred gear to stay in its puppy-form because she thinks is cute, Tomoe has shown mastery over her sacred gear, being able to slice a mountain in half and create several cuts across Kuoh's field with just a swing. It is unknown if Tomoe is able to use its balance breaker.
- Tomoe's images and appearance are based on the character Mai Natsume/Hozuki from the Blazblue series.
- Her favorite meal seems to be rare-cooked meat, and she always dreamed in fighting Azazel one day.
- Tomoe's name is both a nod to Tobio's name and a reference to the female samurai Tomoe Gozen. It's also a pun on "Let's go, friends".
- Ichijou says that Tomoe's breasts are really heavy.
