Toru Hagakure, also known by her hero name Invisible Girl, is a major character from the anime/manga series My Hero Academia. She is a member of Class 1-A at U.A. High School.
She is voiced by Kaori Nazuka in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Felecia Angelle in the English version of the anime.
Due to her invisibility, Toru's physical appearance is mostly unknown; however, it is known that she is a relatively short girl, and her clothes identify her as having a slim yet curvaceous figure. While her true appearance remains unseen, she claims to look like a fusion of Yang Guifei and Francis Xavier.
Her hero costume consists of a pair of baby-blue gloves and white boots, taking both of these off grants her total invisibility.
Toru is bubbly and energetic girl who is often excited by the world around her and likes to socialize with friends. She is optimistic, outgoing, cheerful and kind. She enjoys talking with people and likes cute things. She is also strategic, and often uses her invisibility to her advantage in battle situations to walk around unseen and end fights by sneaking up on enemies as opposed to facing them outright.
There are also times where Toru is blissfully unaware of her own Quirk, despite prioritising her invisibility, she did show some embarrassment at undressing in front of Mashirao Ojiro even with her hero costume having almost no clothing to start with.
Powers and Abilities
Toru's Quirk is Invisibility, though it seems as though her powers are constantly active, as she has yet to be seen visible. Regardless, she is able to utilize her Quirk to remain completely hidden and excels at stealth-based techniques. She can also use the strange way light reacts to her body to her advantage, refracting it to blind opponents and even manipulate light-based attacks like lasers.
The drawback of her Quirk, is that complete invisibility requires Toru to completely undress and thus leaving her body exposed to elements such as extreme temperatures and attacks from others.
