Tokoyami Towa (常闇トワ) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its fourth generation of VTubers alongside Tsunomaki Watame, Kiryu Coco, Amane Kanata and Himemori Luna.
Despite being a Devil, Towa is a sweet, kind-hearted, down to earth girl, which has caused many of her fans to insist that she is an Angel instead, Towa herself tries to play it off as being irritated and claiming she hates angels. She doesn't truly mean it as she likes Kanata. Her streams are usually wholesome and relaxing. She really enjoys herself while streaming and often get hyped when playing FPSs, but she might rage if she dies in said games. She also doesn't like horror games as she gets scared fairly easy.
Towa also likes singing and she is well known for her powerful vocal range.
She greets her viewers with "Ohayappi" (おはやっぴー) or "Konyappi" (こんやっぴー) and she says goodbye with "Otsuyappi" (おつやっぴー).
Her Twitter account was created on November 2019, she made her first tweet on 31 December, her YouTube channel was created on 4 December and her debut stream was on 3 January 2020.

- Her voice seems to get even deeper when she just wakes up, to the point can be mistaken for a male voice.
- Coco tends to call Towa "mentally challenged" due to her not appearing in Asacoco commercials and, ironically, acting much less deranged than the rest of 4th generation.
