Ways to regenerate ?

Tomie is able to regenerate herself from the smallest living piece of herself, including hairs, skin, and drops of blood. Each separate piece can grow into a full clone of herself, with its own independent mind. The only way to prevent Tomie's regeneration is to burn every part of her, leaving nothing for her to grow from.

Tomie can regenerate if you bring her food or strike her with radiation. In the story "Little Finger" it follows a group of Tomies growing up and you see them in chronological order. It is implied that she can either control or manipulate other people into bonding with her to speed up the process.

She will either take over the recipient's body (and all of their memories and self-discernment) or create a strong physical duplicate with their own sense of identity.

The origin of words

Tomie's meaning is "wealth, abundance" (tomi) and "bay, inlet" (e)

Her name, Hokusai Kusuri can be translated as 'The god who heals with a powdery substance', which is further proof that she is inhuman.
