Cool-kyou Shinsha Wikia

Tohru, also known by the alias Tohru Kobayashi, is one of the main characters and the deuteragonist of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. Tohru is a dragon that had arrived at the human world after losing a fight to God. After Kobayashi saves her life, Tohru falls in love with her and starts acting as her maid.



In her human form, she has long blonde hair (with orange, red, and dark pink highlights in the anime) that she wears in pigtails, red-orange eyes with slit-pupils, two-pronged horns on top of her head, and a well-endowed figure with big breasts. She can also reveal a green dragon tail and gray, bat-like wings in her human form. Her dragon form is that of a green, European dragon with a pair of two-pronged horns, large fangs with four especially-large protruding teeth at the back of her jaws, and black wings. In her human form, she stands at 176cm tall and her three sizes are B95/W70/H75, while her dragon form is an estimated 15-20 meters long.

She is usually seen wearing what appears to be a stereotypical maid outfit (based on the Maid Café Cozy uniform in the anime), but it's actually her scales shape-shifted into clothing rather than an actual outfit.


Prior to meeting Kobayashi for the first time, Tohru was raised to think that all humans are inferior to dragons and foolish beings in general. After Kobayashi saves her life, she begins to act more kind and cheerful around humans, except for those who she views as a rival love interest to Kobayashi, notably Makoto Takiya.

Her desire to become Kobayashi's maid was in part motivated by an encounter she had with a Bandit Girl who expressed her dream to become a maid in Tohru's past.



  • Tohru's character design and concept appears to be based on the character of Fuyu from RaButa, a 4-panel manga series Cool-kyou had worked on 3 years before working on Dragon Maid.
  • Tohru is named after the real world author J.R.R. Tolkien (Tōrukin/トールキン).
