— Rima Toya, Vampire Knight Guilty
165 cm (5'5)
Senri Shiki (Lover)
Rima Touya (遠矢 莉磨, Tōya Rima) is one of the youngest Night Class students and has an unknown close relationship with Senri Shiki. She works alongside with him as a model too. She is roommates with Ruka Souen.
AppearanceEditRima has the natural pale, creamy skin tone of most of the Night Class. She has a strikingly beautiful appearance, much like the other Noble vampires. She has a slender, perfectly proportioned body, and her hair is a light orange shade, and is perfectly straight. When left alone it will hang just below her shoulders in layered locks of gold. Rima often uses black hair ribbons to tie it up into pigtails high on each side of her head: the only part that is left alone is the bangs that fall just above her eyes and shorter hair on the side of her face. Her eyes are big and of a blue color similar to cerulean.
Rima possesses a strong and self-assured personality similar to Shiki. She tends to expand energy only when necessary, and is usually a lady of few words. Normally, she comes across as a quick thinker, indifferent and aloof, but is often seen to be worrying about Shiki and Takuma Ichijo. Despite her uninterested air she has no qualms speaking her mind and unexpectedly has a short-tempered side to her as well. She usually has an indifferent or disinterested expression on her face. As a vampire, she gets sunburned easily and can be seen walking under an umbrella/parasol with Shiki during the day. Cool, professional and occasionally cynical Rima also has a lot of spunk and is very loyal and protective of her friends.
Little is know about Rima's history, but due to her relationship with Senri, we can assume that they were friends before the Night Class was founded.
In the beginning of the series, Rima plays a very insignificant role. She worries about Shiki over the holidays when he returns home and even more so when she is unable to contact him. After suspecting Shiki has changed after the holidays, she confronts Rido Kuran and tells him to leave Shiki's body since she can tell that he is not himself. She is wounded by Rido, but is saved by Takuma Ichijo. She tries to convince Shiki to snap out of his state and calls him an idiot for letting Rido control him, telling Shiki he should learn to love himself more.
A year later, during the ball, Rima is annoyed with Kaname because he halted their search prematurely and did not reveal Ichijo's whereabouts. Rima expresses an unwillingness to attend the party, but is cajoled by Senri to attend, where coincidently, they ran into Ichijo. After the ball they visit the Kuran mansion to deliver a message to Yuki from Ichijo. The two get annoyed with Aido for his unwillingness to bend the rules, but Yuki asks to make an exception for the two and invites them in. Rima notices Yuki's heels and comments to Yuki that she didn't think the prefect was the type to wear impractical shoes (pin heels). She and Shiki leave promptly because the place is a reminder of Rido Kuran.
They are later seen doing a photoshoot at the school where Sara Shirabuki was posing as a student, and again they run into Ichijo there.They are shown again at a model shoot after Kaname has disappeared. They see a model who had been confronted by a vampire who said she looked unappetising. They then start discussing the nobels and Kaname's relationship and Rima shows sympathy for Yuki. Yuki then comes later at the end of the model shoot to ask something. It is revealed that Yuki wants to start the Night Class again and wanted Rima and Shiki to be her comrades. Rima helping Yuki with the Night Class may start to involve her in the story more.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Rima possesses the ability to wield electricity/lightning. Like all Aristocratic vampires, she possesses an accelerated healing factor and can erase memories if needed. A good example of both of her powers would be in the fight between her and Rido/Shiki. She also has enhanced speed and agility, also as shown when fighting Rido.
Main Article: Shiki & RimaRima seems to act like an older sister to Shiki, often seen feeding him pocky in the anime and sometimes in the manga. They are acquaintances in modeling and are rarely seen without each other. Rima is often seen worrying over Shiki, especially when he goes off to see his mother whilst she travels to the Aido mansion with the others. They both seem to understand each other as Rima is the first person to immediately discover that Shiki is being possessed. She cries out for Shiki to love himself more when she is injured by a possessed Shiki's blood whip. Again, their close relationship is shown when she asks for Shiki's blood upon waking up and he agrees. Later, their roles seem to almost reverse--with Shiki as the "older sibling" when he shows new maturity in urging her to attend the Kuran's soiree to show their support.
With this accurence we can see that it is not just Rima holding the offections for Shiki i and that he cares for Rima as well. Also with Shiki agreeing so casualy to giving Rima blood we can assume they have given eatch other blood befor and the sibling relationship has faded into more because as qoted by Kaname Kuran " a vampires lust for blood can only be satisfied by that of the one they Love most". During the battle of Sara and Kaname Senri takes the druged blood tablets that make a vampire crave blood maddly, after a few momments of taking the tablets Shiki quicly leaves Rimas side his body now thursting for blood in a matter that would drive any normal aristocrat vampire into a level E like state he goes to talkuma and says he thinks it would be best if he stayed with them for a while. With this we can tell that it is not Takumas blood senri craves of he would have gotten as far away from him as possible to ovide harming him but insted he aviods Rima as much as possible so we can assume it is her blood he is going mad over. Later during the battle Shiki is confrunted by Rima as she runs and grabs him Rima ends up huging him from behind and talks him out of going to help takuma. Niether Senri nor Rima are the touching type, with this act we can see that there bond defies there normal bondries with physical and emotional contact. This makes us see that there is more to there "deep bond " then was origionaly stated. In futher chapters there is a moment when Takuma is telling rima to leave and that she should go home befor she gets hurt . Rima rufuses to leave wanting to stay by Shiki's side , as Takuma futhers trying to perswade Rima to leave Shiki suprises us by interupting Takuma and using an unusily angry tone at him and then promply holds his hand out for Rima and tells her if she truly cares for him she will stay by his side and not ever leave it. After this moment rima blushes showing unchareterstic emotion towords Shiki the page is promtly ended by takuma giving in and letting rima stay.
Rima is presumably good friends with Ichijo and vice versa as he is evidently worried when Rima is injured by a possessed Shiki. Likewise, Rima is also seen mentioning where 'Ichijo-san' was when she wakes up and both her and Shiki find that Ichijo has disappeared.
