Moriko Mizuki (瑞妃森子, Mizuki Moriko), is a artificial half-ghoul who wanders around the wards of Tokyo. Although her past-life is unknown, it was the catalyst for her current status as an infamous and powerful kakuja ghoul. She is known by the CCG and others as the One-Eyed Cat (隻眼のネコ, Sekigan no Neko).
However, after Nikki Futago's death, Moriko has abandoned her murderous life and proceeded with a much more peaceful one, founding :re. That also had ended after being killed by one of the Red Sun's mistresses, Zhi Yun
Moriko is a ghoul with the height of 5'6" and seemingly average body. She has a long scarlet-colored hair that reaches her hips as its bang covers her left eye. She has both light-violet eyes as the left one may turn into a kakugan without control at times. Even though her bang covers her left eye mostly because of the kakugan, she also has a scar on that eye. Moriko also wears red-rimmed eye-glasses.
Casually, she would wear dark brown shirt with a light brown undershirt beneath it, along with a necklace that has three jaguar teeth attached to it. Moriko would also wear dark jeans and black sneakers.
During her ghoul activities on the streets, she would wear a black jacket which features a hoodie along with extra clothing to hide possible female's biological traits. She also produces an animated kakuja mask to cover her face as it also produces a distorted voice as full-kakuja form would.
Her kakuja form is shaped into some sort of gigantic feral beast which consists of mostly dark-red protective skin around the body with some shades of light pink around its back. It would also shape a face that would be reminiscent to Chesire Cat from Alice in the Wonderland except with one eye, which is the one-eyed kakugan. Its green tail with sharp edges around its sides along with its end point is also found on the kakuja's back.
After Moriko has fully changed, she stopped wearing both her glasses and teeth necklace, replacing those apparels with Nikki's own eye-patch as neck-wear. Moriko's manager uniform consisted of crimson red shirt with rolled-up sleeves, especially considering the summer weather, along with a small, sleeveless, black vest worn over it. Moriko also wore black trousers with formal shoes of the same color.
Moriko has shown no signs of compassion as she always depended on manipulation and deception throughout her ghoul-life. Tricking and killing people to earn what she needs and wants, and despises when someone has gotten her restricted. She isn't quite friendly to other civilians as she has no interest in knowing others unless they have something that satisfies her curiosity.
She also exhibited extreme sadistic behavior and psychopathic personality against many people, whether they are ghouls or investigators. It is yet to be known why she has that sort of behavior though.
After Nikki has finally died, Moriko has exhibited a huge changer within her personality. No longer the maddened and blood-thirsty ghoul she used to be but instead, became more of a very kind and soft woman who deeply cares for people. The woman would try her best to also make up for her mistakes towards people she messed up their lives with, unfortunately except for CCG though.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Powerful Strength: Moriko has possessed high levels of strength during fights. While she has been shown to be a somewhat proficient Hand-to-Hand combatant in a spar with Veli Batsu, it pales in comparison to experienced fighters. Moriko only knew the essentials.
- Strengths: Moriko was undeniably powerful in all aspects related to strength and speed, fulfilling the criteria of being one of the SSS rated ghouls within Tokyo as a whole.
- Weaknesses: While extremely powerful and also a bit proficient in melee combat, Moriko doesn't have the proper combat experience her other counterpart, Nikki, has. Moriko's comfort combat role is that of being a behemoth kakuja rather than a normal fighter.
Appearance: Moriko possesses a bikaku kagune which takes the form of a long, green colored tail with sharp edges around its side and end point.
Complete Kakuja State: Moriko has a complete Kakuja. From the looks of it she retains complete sanity while using the Kakuja and her powers are greatly increased. While in Kakuja form, her speed is immense to the point where she can move fast enough for multiple ghouls to fail to even perceive her movements. She also has immense durability as her Kakuja armor seems to take very little to no damage from normal attacks. Her stamina so far seems to be very high. The damage potential of the Kakuja is huge due to her many ways to attack her opponents with extremely destructive Kagune-based weaponry. Overall, her Kakuja seems to make her an incredibly powerful enemy.
Mechanics: Acts a protective and power boosting armor.

|Akane Hayashi||Akane had been viewed in a very similar fashion as Tadashi after Wintertide, especially that both Tadashi and Akane were the victims she personally tortured the most during their first encounter.

|Ayumi Miyazono||Moriko, while initially felt against the natural half-ghoul during their first encounter, showcased a scenario of involuntary sympathy the moment Ayumi made it known that she was also a half-ghoul, just in a different manner.

|Hatsu Laure||Laure was supposed to be just a simple torture toy for Moriko to play with as One-Eyed Cat, attempting to please her more sadistic desires after feeling supposedly severe withdrawals.

Moriko also offered a kind offering with a blanket for Laure as well, showcasing potential humanity that still lived within Moriko and paving way for her redemption after Nikki's death.|
|Veli Batsu||Moriko has shown interest towards Veli after she encountered her in Book Joint.

Veli is the only person Moriko has given her a name to call her with before her real name was revealed, which was Katze.|
|The Colorless||Moriko has encountered the members of the Colorless faction during Wintertide at one of the nights in an alley of 8th Ward. At first, she didn't think of them as much until the fight progressed even more, increasing her interest after she decided to give them a wake-up call for each of them. Their idealism, as much as it was interesting and noble in her eyes, was too naive and ambitious and they needed to improve on that, she thought as she tortured and defeated them. Moriko hopes that the encounter has made the Colorless to realize their mistakes, killing them if they won't improve upon that. She has met some of the members in Book Joint as she was interested in Tadashi Hisakawa and Hayato Yoshikune while playing with Yutaka Kirino's sanity even more. Moriko would like to meet Akane Hayashi once again though.|
|Kristof Brandt||Moriko has noted Kristof's bravery and noble features during their encounter in a ware-house at 8th Ward after she has hidden The Colorless members, earning her interest towards him. She proceeded to retreat after having a conversation about Kristof's opinions about defending ghouls against ghouls themselves, whom are Commission of Counter Ghoul's enemies, learning of Kristof's will of defending anyone against "evil", regardless of the species. Moriko also thought it would be a waste to fight him at the time as he has potential to grow as a proper investigator in her eyes, instead of attempting to kill him at that moment.|
|The Broker||Moriko has visited The Broker's bar called Zanzibar in a whim as she had a craving for a drink after the incidents that were occurring that involved her. She met The Broker whom is the bartender of Zanzibar. They had a pleasant conversation at first until The Broker dropped a hint about his family's status, which Moriko took a note of after sniffing him, revealing the fact that he used to be a stronger ghoul than he currently is. She started to spew venomous comments towards his weakness and all until The Broker realized what he has been doing. Moriko then started to grow an interest towards him as she discovered that he was an information broker, and is looking forward to his return to how he used to be.|
|Daren Blackshire||Daren entered Book Joint with loud music blasting from his headset as he proceeded to sit next to Moriko in the lounge, interrupting her reading session. Annoyed by the abrupt loudness, Moriko initially asked kindly for Daren to lower the music-volume, which he initially did but it was a ruse as he maximized the volume, annoying her even more. At first, she was tempted to chase him off from the book-store and possibly kill him, but she controlled herself as she conversed more with Daren. Daren quietly accused Moriko of being a strong ghoul, which she calmly denied as they proceeded to have a pleasant conversation. It resulted into Daren calling her KittKat while she calls him MJ as requested by him. Moriko developed an interest towards Daren while he sensed possible fear towards her, knowing that she is indeed an intimidating ghoul.|
