Toriel is the second character encountered in Undertale. She serves as a guide for the player, leading them through the Ruins and explaining how the Underground works.
Toriel is a kind and motherly boss monster who genuinely cares for the protagonist and their well-being. While ultimately a benign figure, she has a harder side to her personality, as seen in her attempt to keep the protagonist in the ruins, and her cold treatment of Asgore.
She also has a playful side; she loves puns and bad jokes. She also enjoys cooking. Many of her recipes use snails as a primary ingredient, and her favorite food is snail pie. She's also known to bake butterscotch-cinnamon pie.
Toriel was considered to be the brains of the throne when she was queen, even stating a desire to be a teacher. By the time the protagonist reaches her house, she states that she has already prepared a curriculum for their education. In the game's credits, she is shown standing outside a school, and in certain Neutral Endings, she starts her own.
