Shouto's Mother to Shouto Todoroki in "Shouto Todoroki: Origin"

Shouto's Mother is Shouto Todoroki's mother.

AppearanceEdit

Shouto's mother is a very beautiful slim woman with long, straight white hair with bangs parted to the side. Ten years ago, she was mostly seen wearing a simple t-shirt and jeans. Nowadays, as she currently lives in a psychiatric ward, she wears hospital scrubs.

PersonalityEdit

Shouto's mother was kind, caring and loving towards Shouto and in return, he loved her deeply. She would always support Shouto such as trying to stop her husband's mad training methods and encouraging her son to become the man he wants to be, indicating her selflessness.[1][2]

However, the constant abuse that she received from her husband caused her to become mentally unstable, to the point that one day she snapped upon seeing Shouto's left side, which reminded her of Endeavor. This caused her to throw a kettle of boiling water she had near her over her son's face, burning him. She did not, however, do this out of hatred for Shouto, but rather due to her mental instability.[3]

After staying at a psychiatric ward and away from her husband, Shouto's mother has shown to have regressed to her past kind, caring self. Upon meeting her son again, she apologized and smiled through tears, and the two restored their loving relationship.[4]

HistoryEdit

Todoroki's Past

Shouto remembers his mother crying.

At some point in her life, Shouto's mother married Enji Todoroki, who used his power and influence to force her family to agree to the marriage, so that he could use her and her Quirk to produce a strong offspring. She appeared to be unhappy in this union, as her son would have memories of her crying very often.[5]

Shouto's Past

Shouto's mother defends her son.

When Endeavor began to brutally train Shouto when he was only five, she would attempt to intervene, but was physically assaulted as a result. Despite this, she always supported Shouto in these dark times. When Shouto expressed his worry over someday becoming a man like his father, she assured him that he can become whatever he wants to be, and that he is not bound to his bloodline.[1]

Shouto's mother snaps

Shouto's mother snaps.

However, Shouto's mother started to lose her sanity due to all the abuse received from her husband, finding it painful to look at Shouto because his left side reminded her of Endeavor. One day, as she talked with her own mother over the phone about her trauma and recognized that she no longer had the mental stability to raise her son, she was startled by Shouto's sudden appearance at the door. Seeing Shouto's left side, she snapped, and threw boiling water from a nearby kettle over the boy's face, causing a burn over his left eye.[3]

However, Shouto bore no ill will against her for this incident, instead directing it at his father, whom he blamed for both his and his mother's suffering. Some time after the incident, Shouto's mother was admitted to a psychiatric ward.[6]

SynopsisEdit

Sports Festival Arc Edit

Shouto reunites with his mother

Mother and son reunite.

The next day after the end of U.A.'s Sports Festival, Shouto goes to the hospital where his mother is to see her. Shouto opens the door and enters her room, calling for her. Shouto's mother turns around and sees her son.[7]

Field Training Arc Edit

It was shown that during Shouto's visit, she apologized though tears to him, and smiled as she forgave him as well. She then told him that she wanted him to be happy and save people, which allowed Shouto to finally leave his past behind.[4]

Quirk and AbilitiesEdit

Unnamed Ice Quirk: Shouto's mother's Quirk gives her the ability to generate ice.

RelationshipsEdit

EndeavorEdit

Endeavor is her husband. However, the relationship between them is not a loving one. Shouto's mother hated Endeavor for making Shouto go through harsh training and attempted to stop him, but failed and was physically assaulted for her attempts.[1] Her hatred for him, along with the constant abuse she suffered caused her to become mentally unstable, to the point that one day she snapped upon seeing Shouto's left side, which reminded her of Endeavor. This caused her to throw a kettle of boiling water she had near her over her son's face, burning him.[3]

Shouto TodorokiEdit

Shouto's mother was a kind, caring and loving parent towards Shouto, unlike Endeavor. She tried to stop Endeavor from making Shouto go through his harsh training, and endured physical abuse due to her attempts.[1] She would constantly support Shouto, saying to him that he isn't a slave to his bloodline and encouraged him to become whatever he wants to be.[2]

However, her hatred for Endeavor along with his constant abuse towards her would cause her to become mentally unstable. She eventually snapped and threw boiling water over the left side of Shouto's face. However, she did this out of mental instability and hatred for Endeavor, and not because she hated her son. Shouto also bore no ill will towards his mother due to the incident.[3]

For ten years after the incident, the two didn't meet. After the incidents that happened during U.A.'s Sports Festival, however, Shouto came to visit his mother once again. Once they met, Shouto's mother cried and asked for his forgiveness, and also smiled and forgave Shouto when he asked.[4] The two have restored their relationship and grown close again. Shouto visits her in the hospital on his days off.[8]

QuotesEdit
