Todo (藤堂 (とうどう) Tōdō) was the family name of Shizuka Todo's parents. He was the president of Todo Trading and expected Shizuka to inherit it once he retired. They were both shocked when she decided to become a lawyer in France instead.

Biography[]

Todo, the president of Todo Trading, and his wife had one child together, Shizuka Todo. She was expected to inherit the company one day. On her twentieth birthday, she announced at her birthday party that she was going to return to France to become a lawyer for the poor instead. She apologized them, but said "It's time I began my adult life." Her father wondered what would become of his company, while his wife began crying.[1]

Physical appearance[]

Shizuka's parents were both middle-aged. He had light hair and a dark mustache. Being a company president, he favored suits. Her mother's short, wispy hair had a similar look to Shizuka's, though hers were longer. Shizuka's face also resembled her mother's.

Etymology[]

Todo (藤堂; とうどう) contains two kanji. The first means "wisteria," specifically the Japanese wisteria, and uses the on'yomi pronunciation.[2] The second kanji means "temple," "shrine," and "hall."[3]
