Background: Hanako of the Toilet is a Japanese toilet ghost that has been scaring school children for a number of years. Versions of her have appeared in a number of animes for example; Dirty Pair Flash and Haunted Junction. In Dirty Pair Flash she is a hologram of a dead girl with a baby emulating from one of the stall. She so frightens Kei that she started shooting at everything. By the end of the episode, the hologram is stuck in the on position and when one girl says that they can't be rid of her, Hanako smiles a wicked smile. While in Haunted Junction, she one of many ghost that haunt the school. There have also been books and movies centering on her and other ghost of Japanese Urban Legends.

Her legend varies from region to region and school to school. Believed to be the evolution of a toilet kami, Hanako can be very helpful (some stories say she will hand a girl toilet paper from the toilet if the girl uses her stall). Some stories even say she will help protect her summoner from other ghosts. She can be mischievous though. This varies from knocking on the stall and hearing her answer but opening it up to find no one there to dousing the girl using her stall with blood (this has led some to believe that there is connection with the menstrual cycle and the legend). Then there is the darker side of her, a demoness that will grab any body who dares to summon her and drag them down to the pit of hell or maybe just kill them.

The basic story is that of a young girl who died in the toilet. Some say it was during a bombing raid during the war while others say that she committed suicide and thus haunt the toilet and yet other says she met some other untimely end there. To summon her, you must go to the stall in which she died in (or is associated with her) and knock on it and call her name. She will then appear and depending on what legend you hear, help or hurt you (at very least played a trick on you).

As an option you can even have it be a boy's bathroom that she haunts. After all schools get rebuilt and remodeled and what was once an all girl school, can become a coed or all boy school. This can take on a double reason why she haunts if a boy is what she committed suicide over.
