Unable to be seen or heard by anybody around her except for Shael, Tato is often silly and mischievous. She views the world around her as merely being a constant form of entertainment. Her laugh is melodic and haunting — the type of sound that chills to the bone.

Roles and Relationships

  • Follows Shael (who she refers to as Avara or Shael'avara) around constantly.
  • Can be seen/heard by Jael, who she considers to be her only friend.
    • Gabe thinks/assumes she is Jael's imaginary friend.
  • Often follows Vult around (who she refers to as Ka'var) when Shael is sleeping.
  • In the Bandit's Landing storyline, Tato's only known tie is to Shael.

Interesting Facts or Quirks

  • Age: unknown.
  • Tato is a "fractured" Infernal.
    • She is not a complete Infernal, so her powers are severely limited.
  • Her eyes are almost always kept tightly closed.
    • When her eyes are closed, Tato can still see things around herself in black and white. She can see people's souls, varying in color and intensity based on emotional state. In addition to this, she can also read a person's planned movements and anticipate how they are going to act.
    • When Tato opens her eyes, Shael is able to see through them (giving herself a bird's eye view of her own body while still being able to control it). Shael has spent hundreds of years developing this ability (often using it unintentionally as a defense mechanism) and it is extremely taxing.
  • Tato very much enjoys interfering with people's dreams.
    • While she does this because it is fun, she also consumes souls for sustenance and typically manipulates somebody's dreams for a more favorable "taste".
  • Since Buttons's and Yuki's souls are secondary to their basic functions (meaning they don't play a primary role in controlling their motor functions), Tato sees their souls differently and cannot use her ability to predict their actions. She finds this infuriating.
  • Her true name is actually Thotae, but after Shael twisting it for so many years, Tato now considers "Tato" to be her true name.
  • Tato's favorite "color" is true despair.
