She has wavy dark green hair which she often wears in a pony-tail; she also has lime green eyes, where she wears glasses over them.

Her usual attire consists of a blue vest with dark blue shirt and pants with black combat armor with the Anti-Skill emblem placed on the front whenever she is in combat and has a tan dress as her civilian cloths and wears the blue vest whenever she is out on patrol. Tsuzuri appears to be rather young as if she were in her 20s.


Though well-intentioned and kind, she is timid and is terribly lacking in confidence.[1] She is also clumsy and though slightly incompetent in working as a member of Anti-Skill, she is still trusted in taking dangerous operations.[2][3] She is once seen to fire her weapon while her eyes were closed.[1]


She is a teacher of an unnamed school in School District 7,[4] and is also a volunteer of Anti-Skill,[1] where in the anime adaptation she is often partnered with Yomikawa Aiho.[5][3][6] She is also an avid player of the Gekisho series of fighting games, and specializes in the character Jamie, to the point that she is called Empress Jamie for her skills on using the character.[5]

Tessou and Yomikawa investigate the uploader.

The proliferation of Indian Poker led to information previously restricted to School Garden leaking outside, with the nature of the card's production complicating the schools' efforts to prevent information leaks. After toys used to make the card dispenser were recalled by their manufacturers, likely under pressure from School Garden, an alternative design using different toys was uploaded. She and Yomikawa of Anti-Skill attempted to find the uploader without success.[13]


She is a member of Anti-Skill, though seemingly looking incompetent, she is still trained in handling firearms and handling civilians.[1]
