Tonari is a young girl about 14 years old. She has short brown hair, green eyes, and tan skin. She wears a light blue jacket and shorts, a black and white shirt, and is often seen with her pet owl, Ricard. She also has a triangle carved in the palm of her right hand.
Tonari is clever, cunning, and appears to be a bit manipulative. She has a great love for reading and writing.
Tonari is introspective, keenly aware of her own attitudes and feelings. Tonari admits to Fushi that she believes guilty prisoners deserved to be killed, a belief that prevents even murder from upsetting her. She questions whether this belief will allow her to assimilate in the outside world.
She displays a deep sense loyalty to those she considers her friends, and is willing to go back to Jananda to rescue Fushi despite finally being able to leave the island. Eventually, Tonari extends her sense of duty to the entire island, opting to stay on Jananda to rebuild and reform its society.
Tonari grew up on an unnamed island with her father, Erran G. Dalton, and an unnamed mother. When she was 7 years old, she awoke one morning to find her mother lying dead on the floor. The Church condemned her father as the killer and sent him to the island of Jananda. The Church gave Tonari a choice to either stay on her home island as an orphan or follow her father into exile. She decided to follow him because she believed her father to be innocent.
On Jananda, the prisoners and their exiled families discarded their humanity, creating a new culture that recognized every freedom imaginable, including murder.
After an unknown time, Tonari's father decided to enter a tournament that, if he won, would give him the power to leave the island. Tonari begged her father not to participate, but he ignored her pleas and told her to go to Ivo Port at the end of the tournament.
In the end, Tonari didn't recognize the victor as her father and believed him to be dead. She searched for his corpse for several days until she found a book at Ivo Port. In the book was a note addressed to her from her father that read, "Happy birthday! With this book, weave together your dreams." Her father ended up being murdered by other residents for killing the previous victor.
However, it is later revealed that Tonari only believed her father to be innocent in the beginning. After watching him fight and enjoy himself in the tournament, she began to suspect that he really did kill her mother. From then on, Tonari believed her father and everyone else on the island was murderous scum,

Natural Abilities and Skills
When there is trouble, Tonari's group often looks to her for guidance. She seems to be well-liked by the group.
Tonari appears to be very well-read, pointing out to Sander that if they pulled the spear out of Mia's abdomen, she would bleed out and die.
- Poison & Toxin Resistance
Over the past four decades, Tonari has ingested several different types of potent toxins and poisons and has built up a resistance to them. During her girlhood, she was shown to have an autumnal immunity by regaining consciousness only minutes from a drug, such as the western morning glory, that leaves their victims out cold for two hours. This rare ability was further amplified for Fushi's sake.
- As of chapter 42, her dream is to surprise her father by leaving the island and becoming an author.
- Tonari appears to be wearing the same shirt she wore when she first arrived on the island at the age of seven.
- Tonari is implied to hold romantic feelings towards Fushi, although she quickly brushes them off when they intrude her thoughts.
