|Faction Name||Aogiri Tree|
The Aogiri Tree draws members from the more aggressive ranks of ghoul society and does not exist solely for power and dominance. Its foundation is deeply rooted in a collective anger against a world ruled by humans, where ghosts are treated as monstrous creatures. Through their bold actions, they challenge the status quo and disrupt the established order so that ghosts no longer have to hide in the shadows, cloaked in fear and oppression.
Led by the infamous One-Eyed King, the Aogiri Tree gathers a legion of battle-hardened ghosts, each vital to their own destructive purpose. Their unrelenting struggle against a human-dominated world has led them down an irreversible path that epitomizes their unwavering resilience and unwavering radicalism. In this enchanting realm of ghosts and humans, the Aogiri tree is undoubtedly the epitome of ghostly rebellion, whose fury reverberates through the mysterious nights of Tokyo.
From the beginning, Aogiri Tree had a huge power and a huge member base. As a faction, they believed in a society dominated by ghosts and were willing to use any means to achieve this, often choosing violence and brutality. The original leader of the Aogiri Tree, the one-eyed owl, was a feared figure who terrorized both humans and spirits alike, energetically pushing the organization's agenda with little regard for collateral damage.
Their raw power and brutal tactics have led to numerous clashes with the CCG and Anteik, a small faction determined to keep the peace between humans and ghosts. Notable battles include the Battle of the 11th Ward and the Raid on Anteikas, both of which resulted in heavy casualties.
The faction suffered a decline after defeating the One-Eyed Owl as power struggles and leadership disagreements divided the group. This internal conflict, combined with CCG's relentless drive, ultimately led to the downfall of the Aogiri Tree. However, it is important to note that despite its downfall, Aogiri Tree's impact on the world of Tokyo Ghoul is undeniable. It highlighted the ghosts' desperate struggle in a world turned against them and how far they are willing to go to find a home. The Aogiri Tree will forever be etched in the annals of Tokyo's ghostly history as a symbol of ghostly resistance and a stark reminder of their plight.

The 11th Ward, another important area controlled by the Aogiri Tree, resembles a desolate city coast, which is very different from its desolate appearance. Marked by half-ruined buildings and vacant lots, it is a stark echo of the intense battles that took place there. Although these factions have an iron fist over their local geography, their influence can be felt in various areas of the Tokyo Ghoul cityscape. Even outside their homes, the mere mention of their presence casts a long and terrifying shadow, reflecting their far-reaching power and influence. In particular, the multifaceted geographic presence of the Aogiri Tree plays a huge role in shaping the neighborhood-based power dynamics and narrative progression in Tokyo Ghoul.
This geography, complex as the veins of a giant living organism, serves as a living, pulsing backdrop against which the Aogiri tree feeds, dies and re-emerges, rising again and again from its ashes.
