The main character of the Tokyo Ghoul series is Ken Kaneki. He is currently Touka Kirishima’s husband and Ichika Kaneki’s father.
Previously, he was a Kamii University student studying Japanese literature, leading a very regular existence. This swiftly changed after Rize Kamishiro’s kakuhou was implanted in him, transforming him into a one-eyed ghoul.
Kaneki is the world’s first artificial one-eyed ghoul. His peculiar half-ghoul state later influences the Quinx concept. He learns how to survive as a ghoul after joining Anteiku as a part-time waitress and eventually becomes known as Eyepatch.
