The main antagonist and Apollonius' onetime partner.
His appearance is marked by his flowing, though tattered, robes of navy blue, black and topaz, as well as his smooth-featured face and violet eyes. His most distinguishing feature is the long, platinum-white, wavy feathers growing from his scalp; it is from here than Toma's wings originate, rather than from his back or his sides, as with the other Shadow Angels. Sometimes he has been seen brandishing an ornately designed ceremonial sword.
After Apollonius fell in love with Celiane and defeated the Shadow Angels, he knew Apollonius would be reincarnated in 12,000 years. Therefore, Toma placed himself in suspended animation and awoke 12,000 years later. Even after so long, Toma could never forgive Apollonius for betraying their people, but hidden, even intimate, feelings for him linger from inside him.
It can also be noted that while Johannes is the de facto leader of the Shadow Angels, it appears that the true leadership of the Shadow Angels revolves around Toma, as everyone refers to Toma before they do Johannes.
In the Anime
His intentional plans are to use the Aquarion's power to pollinate the Tree of Life, which has been kept sacred and concealed within Atlandia. However, in order to make it possible, he needs to make the Aquarion manifest its true power of the "Solar Wings", thus preparing the various ordeals and trials for DEAVA's Element Users, specifically Apollo, in order to make them stronger.
Sirius, at once, had thought of himself as Solar Wing, ignorant of Toma's amusement. During the final battle over Atlandia, Toma revealed to Sirius that he possessed the dark half of Celiane's soul, "the soul that remembered," saying that Silvia was "the soul that forgot." Though Sirius stated he had no recollection of remembering anything from Celiane's life, Toma, amused, revealed that it was Sirius' body that "chose" to forget, but his soul still remembers it all. He laughed at Sirius all the while, looking down on the prince for falsely priding himself as Solar Wing, surprising everyone by saying that the reincarnation of Apollonius wasn't Sirius or Apollo, but Aquarion itself.
At the end of the battle, Toma reconciles his love for Apollonius, and takes the place of Reika as the pilot of the Vector Luna, while Sirius returns in Vector Mars, in order to form Solar Aquarion one last time when the Tree of Life had died. He redeems his actions, as well as his hatred for Apollonius, by reviving the Tree of Life with the aid of Apollo and Sirius with Aquarion, sacrificing himself in the process.
But to his horror, he found it was all for naught. Apollonius' soul did not reside in the Aquarion, but in Gen Fudou. Not only that, Apollo was the reincarnation of the Shadow Angel Pollon, Apollonius' companion who followed him into exile. Shocked by this betrayal, Toma's death throes would give birth to the first Shadow Angel in 12,000 years: Mykage Towano, the "Shadow of Love." When the world split in two, Mykage was trapped on Altair, and there he would wait another 12,000 years for the chance to command Aquarion and remake the world in his own image in Aquarion EVOL.
