Kaname Tohyama (遠山 金女 Toyama Kaname?) (codenamed GIV) is Kinji Tohyama's half-blood sister. She is half japanese half caucasian. Later, Kinji named her Kaname. After meeting with her brother, she enrolled in the Tokyo Butei High School Assault department. In reality, she is an American genetic-engineered super soldier cloned from Konzou Tohyama DNA. Thus, a highly trained professional with advanced weapons such as 14 close range weapons such as daggers, swords, and lightsabers.
Kaname is a very beautiful young girl with chestnut hair that reaches down to her shoulders. She has sharp stormy grey eyes.
Kaname herself, even when she fought the girls of Team Baskerville under the product name of GIV, is a very light hearted and kind person. She is normally cheerful and bubbly and tries her best to never show sadness. She is overprotective of her brother, and is jealous when other girls are around him.
Kaname may not look like it, but she is an extremely powerful fighter. Able to take on the entire feminine side of Team Baskerville with ease, she is a force not to be trifled with. Her beautiful and young appearance cover up a monstrous strength, quick mind and technical knowledge never seen before. As one of Tohyama she also has the ability to enter Hysteria Mode though differs from the original's since Hysteria Savant Syndrome is used to protect women. Her Hysteria Mode makes her look weak and pitiful to make her enemies feel sympathy towards her and give up fighting/protecting her.
Kaname was born as a genetically engineered human weapon under the name of GIV in a research center in Los Alamos, New Mexico, United States. Her genes were sampled from many strong and brilliants soldiers, including that of Kinji's father Konzou Tohyama (product name "G" Golden Cross). She was born along side her older brother, Kinzou (then GIII), and has been one of his followers ever since he went rouge. Eventually through their combined efforts, they forced the United States Government to call of their hit on them due to the assailants defecting to their league known as GIII.
Eventually the fuss from the Far Eastern Warfare due to the dismantlement of IU brought their interests to Japan where they learned their older half-brother, Kinji Tohyama, was responsible for defeating IU. To test his strength, the siblings targeted his squad members, incapacitating Riko, Reki, Shirayuki, and Aria, then held them hostage. While Kinzou would remain cold to his older half-brother, Kaname took a natural liking to Kinji and insisted he take her as his younger sister. To ease the rumors surrounding them, Kinji would give her the name of Kaname based off of Kana's name and the two began to live together (much to Kinji's annoyance).
Kinji would not fully accept her as his younger sister, especially when she tried to recruit him into the GIII League as a "Brother-Sister HSS duo." Naturally Kinji tried to get her to leave or sneak out, but Kaname would soon teach him that such actions were not acceptable when she nearly killed him with his own weapon. So, a bet was placed between the two on if Kinji cannot enter Hysteria Mode from Kaname's influence, then Kaname would back down since the proposed team is based off of their mutual HSS talents.
After Kinji transferred schools, Kaname occasionally comes and stays at their grandparents home.
- Kaname was born without a name and just labeled as "GIV," so in order to ease a bunch of girls on the bus who were questioning him about her, Kinji came up with the name "Kaname"
- Her name is derivative from Kinichi's alter ego "Kana"
- Her name means Vital point
