The Head Chef is a variant of the orc species known as a wild orc. He has a huge butcher knife on his waist and a large wok chained to his back. The upper torso of his body is bare with a large tattoo of the words "Fresh Meat" (新鮮な肉) emblazoned on his white chest. He also wears a gold chain around his neck, a pure white chef hat on his head and a pure white apron around his waist. Said apron has four stickers at the lower right corner.
Shihoutu Tokitu can be described as having fanatical motivation for his profession and seems to have the need to make vigorous declarations to enunciate the point. He is extremely reverent to the Supreme Beings that he would not consider producing a languished feast for them to be wasteful or reserving his area just for their use only. Besides being intensely proud of his hospitality, he also values his diligence in his duty in such that being questioned on it can cause him to be momentarily stunned.
In the Web Novel, it's stated he was a creation of the Supreme Beings.
