|“||Those who actually succeed in life, they just happen to be born with a magic ticket called talent.||„|
|~ Tohru Adachi|
Having not much of a good childhood, preferring to study rather than make friends, Tohru Adachi is antisocial yet presents himself as a cheery sort when in public despite not being recognized in favor of younger and more talented detectives. A month before Yu Narukami, unknowingly encountering Izanami on his first day, Adachi was transferred to Inaba and became a dear friend of Ryotaro Dojima to the point of visiting him and his daughter often.
When assigned to protect Mayumi Yamano when she came to town, believing her to be his soul mate after seeing her on the mysterious Midnight Channel, Adachi ended up indirectly causing her death by shoving her into the TV, making him realize that he could gradually kill others in this fashion.
But Yu's arrival made Adachi feel left out to the point of expressing jealousy of the youth, taking it out on Saki Konishi when she slapped him when he was disrespecting her during a one-on-one questioning. Though revealed to be possessed by Ameno-sagiri prior to Yamano's death, Adachi was given enough free will to cause the events and expressed no remorse as he made a game out of the murder mystery. But after being caught, with Dojima not hating him despite his actions, Adachi turned himself in and resolved to redeem himself while serving time in jail.
