|Background Info||Cheerful and positive, Moka's naturally good looks have also gotten the attention of all the males in Yokai Academy (as well as problems with a few of the females). Though good natured, she possesses a bit of naiviety that sometimes draws her into problematic situations. While initially distrustful of humans, she eventually grows to care for the only human on campus, Tsukune. Her bond with him grows stronger over time, even to the point that Tsukune begins allowing her to ingest his blood without protest, just so she remains healthy. When it appears at one point in the story that Tsukune will be expelled, Moka states she would rather drop out and go with him, because she cannot bear the thought of being separated from him. However, this attraction is not without jealousy, as it pains her to see other female students attempt to win his heart.
When the rosario around her neck is removed (originally, only Tsukune could remove the rosary, however Moka is able to release it, albeit with potentially fatal side-effects), the seal that keeps her true nature is released, transforming Moka into a "super-vampire". Aside from the physical changes to her body (silver hair and slit pupils), her inner vampiric personality also emerges. This cold and reserved "inner Moka" is deeply aristocratic and arrogant, and looks down on all creatures, a completely different entity from the "outer Moka". She even goes as far as to specifically remind Tsukune to "be kind to the other Moka". She also possesses much knowledge of the other types of monsters that attend Yokai Academy, as well as applying her knowledge to help Tsukune in the many difficult senarios presented to him.
While slightly amused at Tsukune's attempts to assist her despite him being a 'weak human', the unsealed Moka claims that her personal interest in protecting him is due to his human blood, the sole source of nourishment for her body while at the Academy, and to keep the sealed Moka happy. Over the course of the series, the "inner Moka" begins to take far more activity in keeping him safe, even if the actions result in personal injury to herself. She quickly becomes angered if he is attacked despite her presence or is mocked for being 'too weak'. In the manga, she is shown to go so far as to shield Tsukune from attacks with her own body and even attack herself to prevent her from injuring him while under powerful mind-control. This brings up the question if "Inner Moka" actually likes Tsukune, a question that has hints of being a 'yes'.
With the recent introduction of Moka's half-sister, Kokoa Shuzen, prior to the "inner Moka" being sealed, the two developed a brief rivalry. Kokoa became distressed when she was sealed, and spent the next years chasing after her sister in order to fight and talk to her inner self. While the "inner Moka" loves Kokoa as a sibling, the "outer Moka" despises her for attacking her, in order to force out her inner personality. [Source: Wikipedia]
