— Taokaka into battle
Taokaka (タオカカ, Taokaka) is a respected warrior of the Kaka clan and a RP Character used by Gallibon the Destroyer.
Taokaka is the personification of innocence in the BlazBlue world. She is a happy-go-lucky catgirl who only wishes the best for her friends and family. Her only desire is to protect those she holds dear to her heart, or who offer her food (in her mind anyone who offers her food is a good person). Unfortunately, she is also the least intelligent character in BlazBlue. Like most cats, Taokaka's daily routine consists of eating and sleeping, and she can, and often will, forget anything she does or is told to do within three steps or seconds. Of course, it goes without saying that she is not totally dumb. Taokaka often gives nicknames to those she meets so she can try to easily remember them later. She does actually know who they are, but prefers the nickname routine.
Of course, much of her simple-minded traits can be compared to how a cat's mindset actually works, especially when it comes to how fascinated by things she can be (such as a pair of breasts) or how her mind tends to seemingly drift away from more serious things.
A resident of the Kaka Village and member of the Kaka Tribe. Taokaka wants to get back the sky above her village, which was sealed off. She was sent by the Kaka Elder to retrieve the bounty on Ragna's head, becoming a vigilante in the process. Despite this resolve, she is considerably food-obsessed and forgetful, often falling asleep on a whim, becoming hungry moments after a meal, or forgetting details moments after hearing them. She is good friends with Litchi, affectionately referring to her as "Boobie Lady".
She does not seem to refer to anyone other than herself by name and creates nicknames for people she meets. She is unable to recognize that Ragna, the "good-guy", and "Rawgnya", the criminal, are the same person, though there are times she seems to know but does not care. Interesting to note is the fact that the Kaka tribe, which she hails from, is actually genetically engineered from the genes of Jūbei, one of the Six Heroes. As a tribe, they are copies of each other, and cannot reproduce above one hundred members.
Totokaka began to hold an important conference within the center of the Kaka Village, discussing the events that had happened with Arakune and the lack of food. Taokaka, however, was absent from the meeting.
Taokaka wandered into the center after the meeting, and was met with deception from the Elder. She carefully asked if Tao liked to walk, which was met with an excited yes, Totokaka went further on, saying she had a job for Tao, however, this was met with a swift turn as she thought of it to be too much of a drag. Taokaka, however, was easily won over as Totokaka bribed her with a year's supply of catnip if she did it. The mission in question was just to simply visit the human town, which could help with sunlight returning to the lower area.
The aftermath of Highlander: Takemikazuchi's shattered blast left multiple areas with several civilian injuries. Tao helped Litchi and the Ikaruga ninjas in trying to calm down the situation, fetching medical supplies for the aforementioned to use. In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, while taking a nap, Taokaka sees Ragna fall to her village (after being wounded by Nirvana). She manages to defend Ragna from Arakune's assault and goes to fetch Litchi to heal him. Ragna leaves shortly after recovering and Tao follows after, although she ends up encountering a brainwashed Noel and Hazama. She is thoroughly beaten by Hazama, although Jūbei manages to save her and brings her back to the village. Realizing that she has a lot of training to do, Tao leaves in order to get stronger while allowing her sister Torakaka to be the village guardian in her absence. She manages to catch Ragna to set the stage for BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, as he leaves Kagutsuchi for Ikaruga as Jūbei told her to keep an eye on him.
On Tao and Ragna's journey to Ikaruga they visit the Church. Ragna tells Tao that he is just going away for a moment and tells her to stay put until he comes back. While Ragna visits the Sister's grave Tao, disobeying Ragna's orders, goes somewhere else because something seemed strange. When she arrives, she runs into Tora, who explains she is there because Jūbei asked her to take care of something, saying she left the village in Momo's care. Tao instantly wants to go and see Momo but Tora points out that Momo will not be there for long and that Tao has to stay on her own journey. Tora then asks what Tao was doing there, knowing she should be with Ragna. Tao tells Tora that she is there because she smelt something familiar. Tora then explains that it smelt familiar because this place is the site of the original Kaka tribe village, founded during the Great Dark War by Jūbei's youngest brother, Munefuyu, and it is the Kaka tribe's hallowed ground. Tao then senses something strange and dashes straight to Ragna to find him, beaten up, with Rachel. Ragna wondered how Tao had found them, and Tao told them about the strange feeling she got. Rachel realizes that this means that Tao could sense the Emperor. Tao and Tora then take the injured Ragna to the Kaka hot springs.
After Tao and Ragna arrived to Ikaruga, they went straight to a restaurant where they had a run in with Bullet. Tao finishes her food and runs off to find Noel, but when an Event Interference happens, Tao and Ragna are reset to the restaurant. Ragna then starts bleeding everywhere and walks outside, telling a deeply concerned Tao not to follow. Tao runs after Ragna, but is held up by an employee of the restaurant. She then finds a collapsed Ragna, not knowing what to do, she calls on Celica who was walking by to help. Later on Tao appears at the Ikaruga Controlling Organization branch enjoying the lunch, that Hibiki prepared, with everyone else.
Taokaka first made her debut in the RPVerse when she was sneaking up on Rilah during Rilah's fight with Vlad. Taokaka joined the fight, and together they fought off the vampire Vlad. She has since often appeared alongside with Rilah on their many journeys together. Taokaka has also participated in some major events, such as the Battle for Lansing and All Out Hell. Later on, she appeared to help Beta stop Scurrydown and the Insecticons. After that, she didn't appear for a while until she met up with Quet and SquidMask, who she found them to be very nice, though she found "SquidGuy" to be kind of rude to her. Much later on, she appeared to help and assist the Spirit Rangers. As of late, Taokaka has not been seen in a while, but she is out there somewhere...
