Toshiro Gohda (郷田俊朗 Gōda Toshirō?). is a servant of the Ushiromiya family who works as a chef.

Profile

A servant hired as a cook.

He hasn't served this family long, but through his earlier jobs and previous experience, he has cultivated a talent for entertaining guests. Because of this, he is very highly regarded as a servant.

Background

Before joining the Ushiromiya family, Gohda worked at a prestigious hotel for some time. He was fired due to his involvement in a sexual affair.

Appearance

Gohda appears as a large man dark hair and eyes. He typically wears a black tuxedo with a white undershirt and red bow tie.

Personality

Gohda is extremely prideful, especially in regards to his talents as a chef. He is easily irritated, notably in regards to his ranking relative to the other servants on Rokkenjima. Despite being much more prone to blunders, Shannon is of a higher rank than Gohda. Gohda often complains about this fact. Furthermore, given that he is not permitted to wear the One-Winged Eagle on his person, Gohda is unable to serve his food to Kinzo Ushiromiya directly, much to his dismay.

Plot

Legend of the Golden Witch

Gohda is first introduced when he welcomes the Ushiromiya family to Rokkenjima. He prepares a multitude of delicious food, including a dessert made from rose petals.

Gohda is later killed on the first twilight.

Turn of the Golden Witch

After Jessica and Kanon's deaths, Gohda is cooking food in the kitchen with the other servants when a severely wounded Kanon suddenly bursts through the back door. The servants and Nanjo take Kanon to the servants room to patch him up, but Kanon suddenly conjures a blade and kills Nanjo and Kumasawa. Gohda slams Kanon into the wall as Shannon and Genji retrieve a spiderweb and press it to Kanon's wounds, making him disintegrate.

Gohda and the other servants try to relay this information to Rosa's group, but Gohda is too nervous to properly explain what he saw. Later, Gohda, the remaining servants and George are banished to the kitchen. Gohda, Shannon and George then head to the chapel to retrieve the key to Natsuhi's room, but Beatrice attempts to kill them.

The group is chased all the way to Natsuhi's room, where a spirit mirror that could defeat Beatrice is inside. Gohda uses his body to block the door, which keeps magically unlocking, and Beelzebub eventually kills him by stabbing him in the chest.

Banquet of the Golden Witch

Died in the first twilight as part of a chain of closed rooms.

Alliance of the Golden Witch

Gohda and Kumasawa escape the dining room where the first twilight occurred and rush to tell Battler and the cousins about it. By the order of Kinzo, the two of them are locked inside the garden storehouse, and the only key is passed to Gohda.

When Battler goes to take his test, he looks inside the storehouse and sees Gohda and Kumasawa hanging from the ceiling. Battler later performs a more thorough investigation in the Tea Party and determines that they were killed before being hanged.

Twilight of the Golden Witch

Gohda is the fourth person to pose a quiz to Ange Ushiromiya during the Halloween party. His puzzle consists of a riddle centered around magical food items in a witch's house.

Trivia

  • Gohda is the only servant not to demonstrate any supernatural ability or connection.
  • According to an author note in Shinsou Kaimei Dokuhon Episode 8, Ryukishi07 originally planned for Natsuhi Ushiromiya to have an affair with Gohda but this was changed due to staff complaints.
  • Gohda sometimes forgets that Kinzo lives in the Ushiromiya mansion due to how infrequently he leaves his study.
