Hero Overview

Towa Higurashi is one of the titular protagonists of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. She is the daughter of Sesshomaru and Rin, and also the older twin sister of Setsuna.

She is voiced by Sara Matsumoto in the Japanese version and Erica Mendez in the English version.


She has magenta eyes and white hair with a streak of red in one of her bangs. When she become full human, she has brown eyes and black hair. As a full demon, Towa's hair becomes longer, her ears become pointed and her fangs become more pronounced. On her face, she gains a violet crescent moon on her forehead and some red markings on her cheeks.

For her outfit, she wears a white male school uniform with purple accents on the blazer, a graphite dress shirt, white pants, brown shoes and belt and a red ribbon as a tie.


Towa is consistently friendly and loyal to her friends and those who seek her help, although she initially required time to adjust to the more deadly nature of Feudal Japan compared to her modern setting.

Having been raised with love and acceptance in a (mostly) peaceful world, Towa is more accepting of strange behavior from others and values fighting as a last resort.


She was transported to the modern era through the power of the Tree of Ages when she was just four-years-old. She received shelter from her uncle's in-laws, the Higurashi family, and was subsequently raised by her half-uncle-in-law, Sōta Higurashi. She is reunited with her sister Setsuna after spending ten years in modern times.


  • She wields the weapon Kikujūmonji.
  • She carried the Silver Rainbow Pearl inside her left eye.
    • She seems powerless without it. Though as stated by Kirinmaru, it got in the way of the maturing of inherent demon powers.
  • Towa seems to have a subconscious psychological complex about being perceived as weak due to her gender. Hence why she doesn't like girly clothing.
  • Thanks to her natural enhanced abilities, Towa became an accomplished athlete; winning trophies. The weight set in her room implies Towa is either still in a sport or works out out of habit.
  • Towa seems weal-versed in time travel stories from books and movies, which is why she is so determined to prevent anything from the Modern Era from being carelessly left in the past.
