Onyx and Tora in episode 4.

Between Heaven and Hell (ep 4) 

When Silkey is talking to the dogs and making her offer, Tora is standing a bit at the back. Silkey suspiciously asks why she doesn't speak, referring to her as "the striped one". Shiba tells her that Tora cannot talk. Later, when the dogs are on their way, following One-eye , Tora is the one who is running in charge. Since she is part wolf she has the best nose. She tries to get One-eye's scent track, and gets it. Being very surprised by how he stinks, she backs off quickly. Shiba and Strike look at her, slightly amused. Tora looks back, not very amused, and continues. In the final scene, when they are spying one One-eye, Abbie, and Lynn, Tora seems to be pretty worried. This is because she doesn't really wants to attack wolves, especially taking Lynn away from One-eye, or the opposite. She knows how it is to be abandoned by your parents and doesn't really want to hurt either one of them, but she can't tell Shiba or Strike, so she'll just have to go, as a reluctant warrior.

Clashing Fangs (ep 5)

Tora is seen in the first scene, where Strike and Shiba are in a fight. Because she is mute and shy, Tora doesn't dare to interrupt. Strike later mentions that Tora can find One-eye, because of her excellent nose. In the fight, later, Tora is seen attacking One-eye and Lynn, but she never does any real harm to them. She, again, does seem pretty reluctant while facing the wolves. She later gets bitten by One-eye on her shoulders and muzzle. When the dogs are about to kill One-eye, by letting Shiba give the final blow, Tora is holding him.

The Calm after the Storm (ep 6)

Tora and Strike bring down One-eye, but he manages to get hold on her and makes the wound on her shoulders even more severe, which causes Tora to run away.

This is Our Home (ep 7)

Tora appeared alongside Strike on the meadow, showing concern for Shiba, who is about to go mad. She later gets presuaded by Shiba to go with her and Strike to the meadow.

Rufus' Clan (ep 8)

Tora made a brief appearance alongside Strike and Shiba as they journeyed to One-eye, but she later decided to stay behind with the rest of her friends.

Journey To Downfall (ep 9)

In the final scene, she appeared besides Strike and Shiba, entering the clearing. She was shown to be shocked and ducking when Shiba attacked One-eye.

Exclamation Point (ep 10)

Shocked, Tora looked as Shiba died. She, just like Strike, didn't see exactly how she died, but she blamed it on One-eye like her friend. She fled alongside Strike away and didn't listen to Abbie. She was later seen by Onyx, and then decided like the rest to go home and leave the wild forever.
