Description: Tomie appears to be an extremely attractive Japanese girl of about age 16. Her particularly lustrous hair is normally worn straight, hanging to just below her shoulders. Tomie has a small "beauty mark" mole just below her left eye. She favors trendy clothing that flatters her youthful good looks, but will often adopt a school uniform to fit in temporarily.




Little is known of Tomie's true background, not even her family name. It is not known how she gained her powers, or even if she was aware of them prior to 1986. According to witnesses, she aged normally to that point, and seemed a standard if very pretty and flirtatious girl. On a field trip to Inariyawa, a small mountain near her school, Tomie was pressuring a teacher she'd been having sex with to leave his wife and marry her, when a male classmate who'd become obsessed with Tomie accosted her. She taunted the boy, and in the ensuing scuffle, Tomie fell over a cliff. Believing Tomie dead, the teacher decided to cover up the accident by chopping up the girl's body with the aid of the boys of the class. It turned out she wasn't quite dead, so this became a particularly gruesome task. The class then scattered the body parts where they would, in theory, not be found.


Some parts were found, identified as Tomie's, and cremated. Her death was blamed on a psychopath, and a funeral was held. Which made it rather a shock when Tomie walked into class the next day as if nothing had happened. Her reappearance drove the more susceptible members of the class to madness, and when two of them tried to go to the police, the others turned violent in an attempt to stop them. Tomie disappeared shortly thereafter.


Tomie then began appearing in widely separated locations around Japan, inspiring men to passion and murder. She apparently died several more times, but always turned up alive again. Due to the police's stubborn refusal to credit these stories, no concerted effort was made to capture Tomie at least until 1995.



Tomie enjoys the effect her beauty has on men, and seeks to seduce them, but feels no emotional attachment to any of her lovers. Once she no longer has an immediate use for a man, she'll discard him, a pattern that has led to several of her deaths. She's also jealous when attention is given to other women, and work to break up established couples if presented an opening. Extremely self-centered, she thinks nothing of manipulating others for her pleasure.



"Do you really think you'll stumble on another girl as beautiful as I?"



Tomie has an apparently supernatural ability to heal from almost any injury. Worse, if she is chopped into pieces, each individual piece will eventually grow into a fully-formed Tomie. She's even regrown herself from a sufficiently large bloodstain. (Being completely consumed by fire seems to stop a particular piece from regenerating, however.) If Tomie is under particularly bad stress, sometimes a new body will spontaneously start sprouting from Tomie's. Photographs, for unknown reasons, will show distorted body parts even when Tomie is not actively spawning. For this reason, Tomie will try her best not to be photographed.


Tomie is an expert seductress, able to make men do extremely foolish and murderous things for the chance to enjoy her favors. Multiple Tomies will not work togetther once fully grown, the extras simply move to a new area. Indeed, a fully-formed Tomie will sometimes arrange for the destruction of newly spawned Tomies.



Tomie was created by Junji Ito.


Tomie is a femme fatale, leaving dead and broken bodies in her wake. She's best suited for a horror-oriented campaign. If she needs to be more powerful, give her actual Mind Control vs. men only.

Re: (Horror Character) Tomie (SPOILERS)


Hey cool somebody else did a write up on her.




Though the version at my webiste is easier read given that it was done when html was still in use on the forum....




Though looking at her now I might add a side effect on the devoted slave aspect to reflect that these slaves often kills her.....


As I was going with the movie version where she shows some fighting skills above average, I gave her a little more dex. I need to reread the manga.


Ps. Owe you rep for this but it will have to wait for this evening....
