Devils or demons 「悪魔 Akuma[1] are an ancient race of magical beings that dwell in the underworld.[2]


Devils are generally large and humanoid in appearance with pointed teeth, horns, tails, and bat-like wings. Every devil seen so far has access to particularly formidable and frightening forms of magic, such as Anti Magic and Kotodama Magic.

Normally, devils cannot appear in the living world on their own. A mage can use Forbidden Magic and a sacrifice to summon a devil and use its power.[3] Devils cannot wield or enter a grimoire until it has a five-leaf clover. Once they have a grimoire and a physical body, they can unleash their true forms and power in the living world.[4]

The devils seem to have a caste society, with low-ranking devils disparaged and looked down upon by the more famed and higher-ranking devils like Lucifero.[5]
