Shinobu Togami (十神 忍 Togami Shinobu) also known as Blue Ink (青インク Ao Inku) is a character featured in the light novel Danganronpa: Togami. She appears as a supportive character to the main protagonist in the story and her younger brother, Byakuya Togami, as his personal secretary. Since his imposter declared the World Domination Proclamation, she resides by her master to write his biography, Journey Under the Midnight Sun.
Shinobu's title is Super High School Level Secretary (超高校級の「書記」chō kōkō kyū no “shoki”).
Shinobu is described as being very pretty by Hiroyuki, and she is a cyborg. Her left arm, both hands and her right eye are mechanical due to the effects of The Tragedy. Her right eye was replaced with an artificial eye she called "Borges". It functions as an encyclopedia that updates in real time. It also has dictionaries, news, current events, and maps.
Shinobu has a very different personality from her younger brother, Byakuya. She says very humorous things, and her mind wanders a lot. She is very respectful towards her master, Byakuya, as shown by her hesitance to speak.
Super High School Level Secretary
As the Super High School Level Secretary, Shinobu is naturally skilled at organizing and retrieving papers and data.
She contains inhuman strength, due to her cybernetic parts, being able to escape with an unconscious Byakuya, swiftly.

Chapter 1 - Byakuya-sama is God
Shinobu is the one who stays with Byakuya when they visit Prague, the capital city of Czech Republic. She currently is writing Byakuya's biography titled Journey Under the Midnight Sun. After the World Domination Proclamation was declared, Sonia Nevermind, princess of the Kingdom of Novoselic as well as the Ultimate Princess of Hope's Peak Academy (and secretly a member of the Ultimate Despair) confronts Shinobu and Byakuya in the back alley with her soldiers. Before Shinobu could explain that the Byakuya who broadcasted the proclamation is an impostor, Sonia commanded her soldiers to attack. Fortunately, the Ketouin twins, Hiroyuki and Yuika saved both of them. Later, it's revealed that Hiroyuki and Yuika's true intention is to bring Byakuya and Shinobu to their hideout to find out the Secret to Togami Family's Prosperity.
Shinobu and the others eventually escaped the murderous events in the center of Prague and arrived in Škoda Auto factory that belonged to Ketouin Conglomerate. When she tried to contacted Hope's Peak Academy, Junko Enoshima, the Mastermind behind The Tragedy is the one who answered to her call.

While explaining the world's situation to the survivors of Killing School Life, Junko claimed that she was able to confirm complete annihilation of Togami family with the fate of Shinobu either being murdered when the Reserve Course students broke into the main course building and slaughtered every batch of students but the ones in Class 78th and Class 77-B or wiped out alongside the rest of the Togami bloodline as the Tragedy spread across the world.
