Synopsis
Who cares about all that? Just lemme carve ‘em up…
Togaru Kamakiri to Yosetsu Awase in "Early Bird!"

Togaru Kamakiri ( (かま) (きり) (とがる) Kamakiri Togaru?)[1], also known as Jack Mantis (ジャックマンティス Jakku Mantisu?)[2], is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Togaru is a tall, slender young man with pale yellow-green skin (grey-ish blue in the manga) and a bright, fluffy green mohawk. His dark green eyes are pointed downwards to the center of his face, and two hooked blades jut out from either of his cheeks. He has no visible nose, and the shape of his head resembles that of an insect with mandibles.

His hero costume consists of a large, dark cloak and plain black trousers and boots. He has a mask around his eyes and a zig-zag pattern on his shirt.

Personality

Togaru is a hot-blooded person who appears rather aggressive in terms of behavior, akin to Katsuki Bakugo, albeit not to the same extent as the latter. He also seems to have a passion for fighting against his enemies, demonstrated by his desire to battle Class 1-A in the Joint Training Arc.

Abilities

Togaru also seems to have quick reflexes which were even commented on by Katsuki Bakugo during an altercation that they had in which Kamakiri was able to block a point-blank explosion from Bakugo.

Quirk

Razor Sharp (刃鋭 Jinei?)[1]: Togaru's Quirk allows him to produce blades from all over his body.[3] These blades appear to be sharp enough to cut through metal pipes (which are commonly made up of steel or iron), and durable enough to withstand a point-blank explosion.
